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.

South West Wales has spectacular coastline, unspoilt countryside, thrilling activities and fascinating places to visit, making it one of the UK's most appealing holiday destinations. Pembrokeshire, on the South West tip of Wales, is a spectacular coastal region, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park takes in the entire coastal strip - the only national park in the UK to be wholly coastal in nature and for good reason. The coastline is stunning! Neighbouring Carmarthenshire is known as the 'garden of Wales' and home to the National Botanic Garden. Visitors can explore the rich heritage and culture, myths and legends, with spectacularly sited castles and picturesque market towns and the area is a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers, with the Red Kite a common sight soaring over the countryside. Cardiganshire in the north boasts dramatic clifftop scenery overlooking Cardigan Bay and a haven for wildlife and pretty traditional Welsh seaside towns such as Aberaeron, the home of the famous Welsh cob and where one house in every four is a listed building. National Trust places to visit include the beautiful Bosherston Lily Ponds, Barafundle Bay, Colby Woodland Garden and the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby. Other attractions include the smallest Cathedral City in the UK, St Davids, many pretty seaside resorts, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail extending 186 miles from north to south and Oakwood theme park.

    Quiet comfortable cottage next to NT gardens, so plenty of opportunity for walks and photography without having to use the car. Plenty to see and do in the area. The weather helped, too! I like NT properties because they are not too perfect - in some places you are frightened to sit down, but NT properties usually have a "lived in" feel which actually makes things more relaxed.

    Made enjoyable...

    The cottage was in a beautiful setting, very peaceful, a great place to unwind. Fabulous walks right from the cottage door through the woodland and down to the sea. The staff in the gift shop were extremely knowledgeable about the area and were keen to ensure we were having a great time. We are looking forward to returning to the cottage to see the gardens and woodland in a different season.

    Excellent safe walking in the area for my wife. I have COPD and can only do so much walking. We found the local environment perfect for my wife to go off on her own!

    Pretty cottage

    This is a pretty cottage in a lovely quiet location. Extensive gardens which catch the sun and just over the road from the Colby Woodlands Garden cafe and facilities. The pretty walk into Amroth and the sea through the gardens takes only 15 minutes and is most enjoyable. These are the comments I would like to make - The hall radiator seemed to need bleeding, the A-Z guide to the cottage was missing the middle page. Probably not enough hanging space for two people in the big bedroom. Would have liked comfortable outdoor reclining seating. WiFi would have been helpful given no mobile signal.

    Made special by:

    Quiet location, sound of fast running stream in garden, colour and scent of spring flowering bushes -azealas, wisteria, rhododendrons, magnolias and tadpoles in the pond in the garden and Colby Woodland Garden just across the road and short walk to the coast path. Helpfulness of staff at Colby Woodland garden in response to questions.

    Well kept cottage

    Really enjoyed the cottage and it's garden and location. Perfect for birthday celebrations and for easy access to local sights - both on foot and by car. Quiet location, cottage well kept and found all we needed on arrival (useful to have the provided OS map of the area). Also warm and cosy inside but liked the garden too.Would have ben helpful to have some information leaflets re: other places of interest in the area in addition to National Trust properties. Location, easy access to coast, garden. Very helpful and friendly NT employee at Colby Woodland Garden (CJ) when we had a car problem.
