Sunset, sundown and nightime in Abercastle

Rain and seas spray lashing against the windows, storm winds bowing the windows, that is how I imagined a little break recently down in Pembrokeshire, staying at the almost inaccessible Doves cottage in Abercastle.
Doves is at one with the sea, nestled into the cliffs of this fishermans cove, it’s a hideout, an escape and one time sailors tavern, albeit a small one!
During January this year we were delivered for our stay, three days of glorious low winter sunshine. Breakfasts admiring the sunup and dinners chilling out with the sundown.

Abercastle is a typical unspoilt old fishing cove, yes, sure it’s now full of holiday homes, Doves included, but still retains a vast amount of old school fising harbour feel to it. A solitary boat heads out for local crabs from the small quayside occasionally. The wales coastal path cuts through the cove. When the tide is out, there is much exploration to do either out to the wonderful vistas that stretch out to all compass points.

Advice: Go to Abercastle. Eat at the Shed in Porthgain. Drink at the Sloop in Porthgain. Rest at Doves. Doves, the ultimate coastal chill.
