Gwbert-on-Sea is a small, quiet hamlet on the eastern shore of the mouth of the Teifi Estuary, just a couple of miles outside Cardigan. The settlement takes its name from a wandering saint. St Gwbert is said to have landed here and sheltered in a cave. The shoreline is marked by rugged cliffs and small shingle bays, with large stretches of sandbank exposed at low tide, and the area gives superb views over a diverse and scenic landscape.

The 18-hole golf course, the home of Cardigan Golf Club, also offers fine views of the estuary and sea, and from the headland you can look across to Cardigan Island. The mud and sand flats of the estuary attracts a great variety of birds. In the autumn such waders as the redshank, oystercatcher and curlew can be seen feeding here, along with several species of migrating duck.

These comfortable, refurbished, barn conversions are situated on this 91-acre working farm, 4 miles from Cardigan Bay, well off the beaten track, with superb views of river and countryside. Accessing the cottages down a half mile of track, each cottage has its own patio (Rose Barn and The Coach House have their own gardens), there is a shared garden and the surrounding farmland is bounded on three sides by rolling terrain. Along the fourth side flows the Teifi – at whose mouth the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path begins. The river’s changeable tidal waters offer free fishing for trout and salmon, and wonderful opportunities for observing abundant bird and wildlife, including otters.
Rosehill Farm’s setting offers the best of both worlds in an outstandingly lovely area – not only the scenic seascapes of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, but also the breathtaking grandeur of the nearby Preseli Mountains. Both coast and countryside offer superb walking and riding, as well as a rich variety of bird, animal and plant life. Long stretches of steep cliffs, small sandy coves and tracts of National Trust land are features of the Pembroke shoreline to be found within 5 miles – and there are many places for swimming or launching small boats.
