The Cable Hut | Luxury Self-Catering | Pembrokeshire, South Wales

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 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 self-catering cottage. Complete with bubbling hot tub, The Cable Hut is a truly unique couples' retreat.

The Cable Hut, luxury coastal cottage with hot tub


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. Half traditional stone cottage and half corrugated iron hut, this luxury self-catering bolthole provides a quirky alternative for inspiring solo breaks and honeymoons by the sea. Sit back and watch the world go by from the hot tub, as your truly unforgettable staycation unfolds in this wild and wonderful pocket of Wales.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The open plan sleeping and living area is a cosy sanctuary with an industrial edge which is complemented by views stretching out across the ever-changing ocean, and features 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 sweet-yet-deep slipper bath takes prime position below the window, allowing bathers to enjoy the light streaming in, whatever the weather outside, whilst submerged in warm, sudsy water.


Secret beaches and crystal clear waters make the Pembrokeshire coast a playground for adventure, 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. Sit back, relax and take in the coastal views from the cosy summer house (complete with woodburner!), where dolphins, seals, puffins and choughs are commonplace sightings. The sheltered cedar hot tub is the perfect place to spend an end of day sundowner.

For Relaxation

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.


Perfectly equipped for couples, The Cable Hut has an oven, hob, dishwasher, American style fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. There is parking available along the lane leading to the beach below.

Secret Surf Spots Pembrokeshire offers a full range of surf from slow moving waves to Hawaiian style tubes. Whitesands Bay is a favourite all year round, with a number of companies offering surf tuition from half a day to an action-packed week full.

Coasteering Adventures Celtic Quest specialise in providing guided coasteering trips along the Pembrokeshire coast and have expert knowledge of Abereiddy, one of the best locations in the area. The bay offers endless opportunities for cliff jumps, scramble climbing, water features and more.

Saddle Up Feel the wind in your hair galloping along beaches and meandering the rugged coastline. Nolton Stables will take you through 35 acres of private woodland where foxes, rabbits and pheasants roam freely. Over the years they have carved paths following the contours of the valley and their coastal track follows lush pastures overlooking the beautiful inlets of Nolton and Druidston.

Hole in One Tenby is reputed to be the oldest course in Wales and provides a good test of golf for every ability. The course runs alongside the south beach and due to its nature of drainage, it is playable all year.

Bird’s Eye View With Haverfordwest airport located a short drive from The Cable Hut, take a memorable pleasure flight with Fly Heli Wales. Boasting national nature reserves, Sites of Special Scientific Interest and marine nature reserves, the county is a special sight from the sky. From castles to islands, beaches and mountains- Pembrokeshire has it all.

Catch of the Day Just a short drive from The Cable Hut is Yet-Y-Gors Fishery, a naturally peaceful place where you can enjoy a spot of coarse fishing. With four mature fishing lakes stocked with carp, bream, roach, rudd and perch, there are plenty of catch opportunities to be had. There is a well-stocked tackle shop on site. 



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.

In-House Cuisine

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).  

Eating Out

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.
