Featured in '25 Beautiful Homes' magazine, and named in the UK’s Top Five ‘Lovenests’ by The Guardian newspaper. Tŷ'r Gof (The Blacksmith's Cottage) is a traditional West Wales 'croglofft' cottage and is loved by everyone who stays. Step back in time and relax- It is set in a calm rural location, a few minutes drive from some of the best beaches in Wales like the National Trust beach at Penbryn with it's friendly cafe and Tresaith with the pub directly overlooking the beach.

Simple, small, and rustic, with luxurious touches such as cotton sheets and Wi-Fi. This cottage is perfect for cosy romantic breaks for two (and your doggy!).

Tŷ'r Gof sits on a quiet road in a small hamlet just a five minute walk from Rhydlewis village (shop, salmon smokery, independent butcher - and a quirky tin post office!). Good country walks can be had immediately from the door, with guides provided in the cottage. See the local coast,

The cottage is essentially one open space with kitchen /Living and dining area - warmed by an 8KW wood burning stove, Nobody (even in deepest winter snow) has ever said they've been cold there.
