About Little Craig-y-borion

A picture-perfect 200-year old whitewashed stone farmhouse, deep in the Pembrokeshire countryside surrounded by woodland and meadows with the beautiful Welsh coast on the doorstep.

Only a mile away from the stunning Colby Woodland Garden, this remote and tranquil cottage is perfect for walkers, nature lovers and anyone who needs a break from their busy lives. Take time to discover otters frolicking in the water, toads slowly meandering by, rare wood warblers in the woodland and bats flying overhead at dusk in this enchanting place.

This recently renovated farmhouse offers a comfortable and peaceful space to relax after a day of exploring. The front door opens into a hallway where you’ll find the living room off to the right with its snuggly sofas and a toasty woodburner. To the left of the hall, the dining room has another woodburner, so when it’s blustery outside you can have cosy dinners round the table. The pretty built-in kitchen with its triple aspect windows is perfect for lazy breakfast preparations. There’s also a handy utility room and a downstairs shower. Upstairs off the landing, there are three bedrooms (two twins and a master) and two bathrooms. When you step outside the unenclosed garden stretches away to wilderness. Throw in the orchard, wildlife pond and a walled garden that’s used for growing veg, and you’ll see why this rural escape is so special.

At the heart of the Colby estate, this historic farmhouse is in a truly beautiful spot, nestling in the countryside, far from the road. Wander along to the hidden wooded valley of Colby Woodland Garden, just a mile away from the cottage, and discover the seasonal display of flowers and lush wildflower meadows. Or a short 30-minute walk will take you through sun-dappled woodland to the flat, sandy, Blue Flag beach at Amroth, where you can paddle, build sandcastles and catch some vitamin-sea. You can also nip into the bustling medieval walled town of Tenby with its stunning stretch of golden sandy beach, and check out the colourful houses that line the sheltered harbour.

This part of Pembrokeshire has all sorts of things to see and do to keep everyone entertained. For little ones, there’s Oakwood theme park, The Blue Lagoon water park or Folly Farm adventure park and zoo. Why not head out to the wildlife havens of Skokholm and Skomer where you can see puffins, Manx shearwater, guillemots and fulmars (at certain times of the year). The wonderful Stackpole Estate is not too far away, with stunning coastline, calm seas and sheltered coves that are perfect for canoeing or kayaking. Barafundle beach, often voted as one of the prettiest in the world, is a short walk across the headland from Stackpole.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
