Set back in their own grounds with gardens to the front, side and rear, these 18th Century fishermen’s cottages enjoy magnificent views across St. Bride’s Bay and over the harbour to the totally unspoilt National Trust Headland of the Gribbin and beyond.
The coastal footpath passes the end of the front garden, leading down to the quay and beach – just 3 minutes walk away. Caerwen consists of two cottages, both tastefully modernised and decorated and furnished to a high standard whilst retaining their original charm.
The cottages are situated in their own grounds with substantial terraced gardens and the sea below. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes just yards from the cottage garden.
So picturesque are these cottages that they are often the subject of both artists and photographers’ work. Fort Cottages are 2 separate cottages, both sleeping 4 people and can be taken together or separately.
At the end of Pen-yr-Aber, a row of cottages standing directly above the quay and harbour lie Caerwen Cottages.
The Fort Cottages are two very unique fishermen’s cottages built in the late 1700s, nestling in a prime position overlooking Solva harbour, St Bride’s Bay and the unspoilt headlands of Pembrokeshire National Park.
