Banc-yr-Eithin Cottage

About Banc-yr-Eithin Cottage

A haven of peace and tranquillity – perfect for couples, walkers and nature lovers – our cosy bluestone cottage is situated in beautiful 3-acre grounds, 15 minutes by car from the beaches and Coast Path at Newport and 10 minutes’ walk from the Preseli Hills.

With a wood-burning stove in the snug and underfloor heating in the spacious bathroom, the cottage is warm and cosy whatever the weather. There’s a king-size bed (with 100% cotton, professionally laundered linen) in the mezzanine bedroom, a bath and separate shower in the bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and dining area, and a covered seating area in the garden, with a bbq and firepit.

Guests can also use our sauna (with ice bucket shower)…explore our extensive grounds, filled with wildflowers in summer…sit by our spring-fed pond to watch dragonflies…play ping pong/pool/table football in the barn (perhaps accompanied by a drink from the honesty bar and music from the large selection of vinyl records)…and use our tandem kayak (stored at a beautiful local bay) to explore the stunning Pembrokeshire coast.

What recent guests say…

“If you long for a peaceful retreat from the hurly burly of life, look no further. If you can tear yourself from the beautiful surroundings, with sauna, mini gym, and other recreational activities…you have the use of a kayak…and proximity to a wealth of Pembrokeshire beauty.”

“Expect everything and you will not be disappointed.”

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!! 🤩❤️This is literally the best Airbnb that we have ever stayed in. Everything about our experience was absolutely perfect!”

“This is by far the best Airbnb I’ve stayed at. The setting was beautiful, secluded and quiet. The cottage was even more beautiful than it looks in the photos. Everything was clean, the kitchen contained everything you need and more. The hospitality was great. I will definitely be back.”

“We had the most perfect weekend away at Banc-yr-Eithin. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating to our needs, the cottage was probably the nicest Airbnb we’ve ever stayed in, we’d live there if we could.”

“Superb cottage, right out of a fairy tale. Everything about the place was perfect.”

“An absolute gem, secluded location, beautiful place and wildlife all around.”

“We enjoyed 10 days at the cottage; it was extremely cosy and comfortable – a great layout and we loved the log fire in the evenings. Only 15 mins by car from Newport, it is the perfect location for exploring the coast and the Preseli Hills.”

Banc-yr-Eithin is situated in a peaceful and private location at the end of a very quiet 1-mile single track lane (with passing places!) off the Crosswell to Crymych road. Although the location feels wonderfully remote, you can drive to Newport in 15 mins and to Cardigan in 20 mins.

Please note that the last 1/4 of a mile of the track is unpaved and suffers from potholes, especially after wet weather. But it’s fine in an ordinary car (that’s all we have!) if you take it slowly.
