4st self cateringOnce the home of the local miller, Bwthyn-y-Melinydd is a 200-year-old traditional stone cottage that has been lovingly renovated and extended.

Situated in the hamlet of Llanrhian, near Porthgain, the pretty two-bedroom holiday home offers you a peaceful, relaxing base, a short walk from the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. Grade II Listed Bwthyn-y-Melinydd sleeps four, making it a great choice for your family break or romantic couple's retreat.

Inside, the cottage has been beautifully furnished with the emphasis on comfort, while traditional features include a beamed ceiling, exposed stone walls and slate floors.  Plus, you'll find it snug all year round, thanks to oil central heating and a wood-burning stove.

Bwthyn-y-Melinydd is also the perfect spot for stargazing, thanks to its location off the beaten track. All you have to do is step outside and look up. Or why not make an evening of it by wrapping up warm and relaxing under the stars.


Bwthyn-y-Melinydd, in Llanrhian, is within walking distance of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and stunning sandy beaches.  It's a half-mile walk from Porthgain and the Sloop Inn, and a short drive from the city of St Davids.

Atmospheric, historical, stunning, wild, surprising, intriguing, great fish and chips; some of the words visitors to Porthgain have used to describe this pretty fishing village on St David’s Peninsula.

Situated on a steep hill, at the end of a pretty country lane, sloping down towards the sea is the old fishing harbour of Porthgain. Set around a traditional village green with picnic tables and goal posts, this picturesque fishing village, once buzzing with industry is now a very popular tourist destination and boasts two renowned and highly acclaimed restaurants, The Shed Bistro and The Sloop Inn, both serving sensational catch-of –the-day seafood straight from the boat, excellent art galleries, a popular harbour for launching kayaks and dive boats, and of course its superb location in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

The air is crystal fresh and the light clear and bright in Pembrokeshire, perfect for artists. Local art is displayed in two excellent galleries in Porthgain. The night skies are free from light pollution and tranquillity surrounds you.

If you’re a fan of astronomy or astrophotography, you’ll find eight Dark Sky Discovery Sites across Pembrokeshire that are waiting for you to explore, including Newgale beach, and Broad Haven. In this beautiful corner of Wales, it’s possible for you to see the spectacle of the Milky Way or the constellations such as Orion.

And Porthgain is the ideal location for walking as the Pembrokeshire Coast Path can be reached from both directions with the local beaches of Aberfelin, Traethllfyn, Abereiddy and the Blue Lagoon all within walking distance. The clifftops here offer splendid views of the north Pembrokeshire coast line and a plethora of wildlife and wild flowers; be sure to watch out for the must-see birds found in the area – the chough and the peregrine falcon.
