This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

For those looking for the ultimate get-away, this 19th century cottage is the perfect choice. Leave your car and walk down the grassy footpath to Pant Rhiw Cottage, where the spectacular views across Hell’s Mouth Bay make the walk worthwhile. Once inside, the cottage is very comfortable and boasts wonderful views from all rooms and from the front and side gardens and patio.

Pant Rhiw is part of the Plas-yn-Rhiw estate, which was restored and given to the National Trust by the Keating sisters and cottage guests have free access to the Plas-yn-Rhiw manor house and gardens. This is an excellent holiday home for those who enjoy walking or just want a real away-from-it-all cottage for the ultimate relaxing break.

The cottage's layout

Visitor notes

Heating: Storage heating included.

Parking: Space is available for one car in the nearby shared village car park.

Garden: The garden is wild and drops away at the front and sides. It has spectacular views of Hell’s Mouth Bay and there are sheep grazing in the adjacent fields. Although fencing is in place to the garden, dog owners will need to watch their dogs at all times due to the very close proximity of the sheep.

Accessibility: Access to the cottage is from the shared village parking area (space for one car for Pant Rhiw) down a long, steep grass footpath of approx 400 metres through two gates, so visitors should be reasonably fit and active. The footpath is unlit, so visitors should arrive in daylight and bring a good torch.

Utilities: The fridge has an ice box.

Linen: Duvets and pillows will be on the beds, but you must bring your own sheets, pillow cases, duvet covers and towels.

Television: A television and DVD player are provided, but there is no television reception – guests may want to bring their own DVDs.

Offers: Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 12pm at this cottage.

Things to see and do nearby

South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David's Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.

The Llyn Peninsula is an eight mile wide strip of land just to the south-west of Caernarfon that is one of Wales\' finest beauty spots. Much of the coastline is in the care of the Trust and there are some fine and accessible beaches. Wildlife enthusiasts will find much to enjoy here and there are also opportunities for sailing, fishing and diving. Plas yn Rhiw is a 16th-century house with Georgian additions with views across Cardigan Bay. One of our holiday homes adjoins the house and the other stands in an elevated position overlooking Hell?s Mouth Bay. Holiday Cottage guests have free access to Plas yn Rhiw house and gardens during opening hours. Other National Trust places nearby include Llanbedrog Beach, Penrhyn Castle, Porthdinllaen, Porthor. Other attractions in the area include Abersoch Beach, famous for its surfing, Aberdaron, Porthdinllaen, Porthor, the beauties of Snowdonia, the wonderfully quirky village of Portmeirion and boat trip to Bardsey Island

    Beautiful view

    Isolated cottage with beautiful view, right on coast path. We would really have liked the history of the cottage to be described in the information folder. Luckily we met an NT volunteer who could tell us something of this.

    Made special by:

    The remote location and the way that the cottage was simply but comfortably decorated. It reflected the time that the cottage was built but had the comforts of modern living. Thought that tray with fresh welsh cakes and tea and coffee and fresh flowers was a lovely touch.
