A unique and isolated retreat.

Our stay was for the second year running, in the same month, October. The property has stayed in very good condition, for example, the mattress is very supportive and the shower performs very well. It struck us on this visit, how sturdy the building is, and when we met the farmer neighbour, who described just how lively the weather gets, and hence, no trees about, we appreciated the solidity of the restored building and the quality of the glazing even more.
The views from the very large living area are beyond words, they are what drew us back this second visit, and being so near to the coast, there is a constant contrast between the skyline, the sea and the land, which can either be ever-changing subject to the weather, or very settled when the only movement will be the cattle and sheep shifting across the patchwork of fields below Station A. And the clear sky at night is star-studded with layers and layers of pinprick stars and swirling hazes of clouds. Locally, the walking is coastal and inland and is unlimited and a mix of gentle and dramatic. And very local Melin Tregwynt mill is one of the very few working woollen mills in old buildings, in Wales, tucked down a narrow winding tree-lined lane, and you can find out the technical and family history on site along with viewings of the modern looms at work, making beautiful products sold on site and in leading shops across the UK.
At Strumble Head, we saw and heard the stirring cries of a lone seal cub in a cove whilst two adult seals swam around the rugged inlets in a millpond sea at sunset, accompanying a lone paddle boarder! If you want to get away from it all, Station A is the place to go, especially if you love being up high with stunning views and changing weather and the opportunity to walk out in any direction. There's a road right beside the property but you cannot see it, and you can count the number of vehicles going past or cyclists or walkers and the total is minimal! And everyone we met either on foot or in town is relaxed and friendly.

amazing views, peaceful setting with walks from the door, imaginatively repurposed WWII building with interesting history, thoughtful decor/furnishings and very well equipped

What a unique place to stay ! The view was fantastic, we loved our week at Station A. The property was very clean, decorated and furnished to a very high standard with lots of quirky touches. We would certainly recommend it to our family and friends and hope to visit again soon

Amazing position on a ridge overlooking the coast, the large picture windows give an amazing impression of space. You can see Ireland on a clear day!

Ms Stephenson December 2020
A wonderful place to relax and recharge. Stunning views, the property was gorgeous inside and out. And Classic cottages made the whole booking process seamless. Thank you.
Mrs Greenwood October 2020
Station A is a place to breathe - both inside and out. The amount of light from outside enlarges the inside, and even if the clouds come right down, as they do, the lighthouse beam carries on shining 24 hours a day. It's a property with views everywhere you look, of the sky, the stars at night, the ever-changing sea, irregular fields peppered with animals, a rugged coastline, the high and low clouds, the ferry to Ireland, very ancient rocks and space.
Mr Curphey September 2020
We hope to return a.s.a.p.!
Mr Brett September 2020
A brilliant property, very stylishly redeveloped and furnished. The location is perfect, with views across fields to Strumble Head lighthouse and the sea beyond - and so quiet.
