The Experience

Up-and-coming – or up-and-come – is Newport. It’s a little town inland from the rugged North Coast, with an arty, let’s-escape-the-city air. At the sleepy end of town, at the top of a peaceful street, with views across the rooftops to hills and sea, is this charming stone cottage, sympathetically renovated and beautifully maintained. Enter a big, bright, Scandinavian-style space, all whites with subtle accents of colour, new oak floors and painted beams, characterful fabrics and furniture: a button-back armchair, a nut-brown leather sofa. At the far end is the kitchen – the hub of the house. Upstairs are the bedrooms, cosy with seaside colours, enormous beds and plump white duvets. Find flowers on arrival, tea, coffee, milk, a bottle of wine, and logs for cosy nights in. The sunny garden across the lane is a treat in the summer. Come with the kids: Newport Sands is a big breezy beach that you can drive your car on to; Newport Parrog beach is tidal, with a slipway for boat launching and a lively boat club. Great pubs, fascinating shops and little eateries are a five-minute walk… try the Llys Meddyg, or the Golden Lion.

Newport is a lovely small town on the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. Bryn y Wawr is on a quiet road close to all amenities and a short walk from the sea. The cottage is very comfortable, perfect for 4 and well appointed. It’s cosy in poor weather and the lovely secluded garden is great for good weather. This was our second visit and it certainly won’t be our last!

Miranda, Bristol

Beautiful and perfectly set up cottage in the heart of lovely Newport. So comfortable and close to lovely places to eat. We had a gorgeous week with our 6 month old - the perfect first holiday. We had everything we needed and will definitely be back.

Becky, Birmingham

We had such a lovely week at the cottage, which is very well situated for both getting about the area and for the pubs and cafes in the town. We very much enjoyed seeing local sights including St David’s, the blue pool at Abereiddi and Porthgain. The cottage also has lots of lovely walks on the doorstep - we particularly liked seeing the sun set over the Parrog. Thanks for providing a very well equipped, sparkling clean home from home.

Kathryn, Cardiff

Our first visit to Newport and won't be our last ! Great small town with good eating places and little shops. Has a friendly atmosphere and near some lovely scenery. Super cottage - very quiet but still near the centre of facilities with good walking from the door. Very comfortable, clean, stylish and well equipped. A great walk all round.

John, Northampton

Stylish and wonderful cottage in quiet lane, peaceful, restful and well thought out. The best Sawdays cottage we have stayed in and highly recommended. Newport is a vibrant, interesting town with plenty of good pubs and restaurants a short walk away.

Brian, Oxford

We absolutely loved this gorgeous cottage. It's beautifully presented, thoughtfully equipped with all you need and in an ideal location for exploring the coastal walks. You can hunker down in front of the wood burner or take advantage of the local places to eat. Highly recommended!

Anneliese, Leamington Spa

We've just enjoyed our second stay at Bryn y Wawr - it's such a delightful place. The cottage is charming, a real home from home with lovely bed linen, pretty china and tasteful furnishings. We'll be back again I'm sure - thank you.


Charming, cosy cottage in the centre of this delightful town. Decorated in lovely muted seaside colours and equipped with everything you might need. The owner thoughtfully provided tea, coffee and milk. There is a lovely log burner, which was very welcome in the chill of winter. Very dog-friendly and the cottage is a couple of minutes walk from 3 dog-friendly pubs and a fabulous dog-friendly cafe. Beautiful walks along the estuary and beach. A great place to unwind

Isobel, St Albans

Bryn-Y-Wawr is our winter escape. My partner and I have been for the last four years, each time staying for a week. We absolutely love the cottage and feel it is a home from home. The cottage has everything you need and is within a very short walk of the village centre which hosts a number of local pubs, restaurants and coffee shops. The setting is truly picturesque with amazing walks. Turn right out of the cottage and you can walk up Carningli Mountain for truly breathtaking views overlooking Newport and the sea. Turn left out of the cottage and you're a short walk away from Newport Bay

Rebecca, Cirencester

We just love this house and have been back time and time again. Its in a great location being very close to the shops and market, the mountain and of course the beaches or estuary walks. The house is beautifully decorated and equipped with lovely touches from gorgeous welsh soaps to bunches of freshly picked flowers. We just feel it is home from home and always look forward to going back. Needless to say we already have our next stay lined up and cant wait.

Max, Petworth

I have been to so many UK holiday cottages in my time but this one stands out as being one of the best in every way. A lovely location, lovely town, everything you could possibly want for a very happy fortnight or short break. Good walks, coffee, bread, restaurants, beer, landmarks, beaches... The cottage itself was spotlessly clean, comfortable, well-maintained. Caroline clearly takes enormous pride in running this holiday let and has thought of everything. I can't recommend this place highly enough and it would be equally lovely in the sunshine or the rain.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Caroline Crofts

  • Forget the car - you're a ten minute stroll from the Pembrokeshire Coast path. Take your binoculars for the bird life on the estuary, laze away some hours on the beach, hire a kayak, or explore the dramatic cliff top scenery.
  • Or head for the hills - climb up to Carn Ingli for a panoramic view - you might see Snowdon on a clear day. Or explore the Preseli Hills by horseback or bike, before heading home to one of the friendly local pubs, cafes or restaurants.
  • The local Spar never seems to shut, but there is also a bakers, with bread and barm brack baked on the premises, a butchers and fishmongers, a great deli, as well as a post office and chemist. Check out the wide variety of local art and crafts too.
  • On a Monday morning, the adjacent street is closed for the lively market, selling tempting local food, plants and crafts - pick up a souvenir or linger over a coffee at one of the lively cafes.
  • If you prefer to explore further afield, the popular Gwaun Valley, with its local brewery and valley walks, are a short drive away, or visit Pentre Ifan, the nearby historic burial chamber, or Castell Henllys, an iron age fort.
  • Alternatively, spend some time discovering the ancient city of St Davids, with it's beautiful cathedral - look out for the queens seat and take a break at the popular cafe, before heading home to your cosy cottage.
