Back in the days where love letters and drift bottles were amongst the few means of communication, The Cable Hut was built to house the first telephone lines being laid across the Atlantic Ocean. Over 100 years later and after a storm hit the Pembrokeshire coast leaving it abandoned, The Cable Hut captured the hearts of a passing couple who have lovingly transformed it into a unique luxury coastal cottage.
The Cable Hut nestles between the remote beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach in South Wales. Set beside a single track road within meters of the Pembrokeshire coast path, an 'off the beaten track' experience awaits from the moment of arrival. Half traditional stone cottage and half corrugated iron hut, this luxury self-catering bolthole and its desirable seaside location provide a quirky alternative for honeymoons and inspiring solo breaks.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The open plan sleeping and living area is a cosy sanctuary with an industrial interiors edge, featuring a wooden cable reel table, cushy sofa and king-size cast iron bed dressed with plump pillows in pillar box red. The bathroom with walk in shower sits down from the kitchen and the deep slipper bath takes prime position below the window, allowing bathers to gaze out to the ocean whilst submerged in warm sudsy water and rose petals.
Secret beaches and crystal clear waters make the Pembrokeshire coast a playground for adventures, just 400 metres from the front door. Adrenaline lovers can push themselves to the limit scrambling and diving from towering cliffs into blue lagoons and kayaking through hidden coves with a local coasteering guide. Look out for dolphins, seals, puffins and choughs among other rare breeds which return every year. For a romantic rendezvous, enjoy the privacy of the sheltered courtyard or a roll around in the wildflower garden.
Protected by Britain’s only coastal National Park, Pembrokeshire is a unique holiday destination for all seasons. The modern design incorporates seductive interiors and underfloor heating to ensure the hut is a cosy hideaway protected from the elements. After a glistening winter, Pembrokeshire bursts into a riot of colour. Cwtch up in the swing seat, listen to the sound of the sea and be inspired by the wild, whimsical scenes all around. From fluttering butterflies in spring to migrating birds in autumn, The Cable Hut is surrounded by untouched raw beauty.
Especially in winter when there are fewer visitors, The Cable Hut gets you close to "off grid" without compromising on any modern luxuries. There is an oven, hob, dishwasher, American style fridge/freezer and washer/dryer along with TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: This romantic Welsh cottage stays true to its roots as a cable hut, featuring exposed bulbs, iron furnishings and flashes of fire station red. The coffee table is even an old cable reel – utterly inspired!
Property Owner John says
We love The Cable Hut as it offers complete seclusion from the outside world in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It´s our secret hideaway where we can just switch off and unwind from everything.

FOOD AND DRINK
The cosy and stylish kitchen-cum-dining area allows budding chefs to be kept company whilst preparing a culinary creation for two. The sheltered courtyard to the back of the cottage is perfect for barbecues or romantic candlelit dinners beneath the starlit sky.
If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your loved one (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
Pembrokeshire is home to a wide range of restaurants. For a fine dining experience head to award winning Cwtch* (Welsh for cuddle) in St David, or for cosy country pub head to the charming Farmers Arms in Mathry, offering a warm welcome and locally sourced seafood. The Shed in the sleepy seaside town of Porthgain is said to offer the most exceptional fish and chips around.
