The Coach House is a rustic cottage facing south with wonderful views up over the Preseli Hills. It is in a secluded private farm courtyard at Ffynnonofi Farm, once a location for the John Huston film Moby Dick. The cottage is newly converted with terracotta stone floors, white washed walls, underfloor heating, a cosy wood burner and a large double bedroom with small en suite bathroom. It is superbly located for the Pembrokeshire Coastal path and it has it's own beach minutes walk away across our fields. There are areas to sit in the sun and have a barbecue and seats in sunny spots dotted around the farm buildings and garden. The cottage is spread over two floors. The ground floor is open plan making it a cosy place to prepare food and eat whilst the wood burner is blazing away. There is a desk and 'work area' for those who want to do something creative or maybe catch up with work. The upper floor has a main double bedroom with small en suite and a small rest room (dressing room) off it. There is a larger bathroom with shower and bath on the ground floor. The feel of the cottage is rustic and you'll find old welsh blankets, local slate sills and wooden oak beams rather than neat carpets!

Charming rustic cottage in fantastic location
The location of the cottage is really fantastic, if you enjoy the countryside. Just walk over two fields (if you are lucky, you will see several beautiful halfwild ponies) and you reach the sea and the fantastic coastal path. You can walk around Dinas Island or to Newport (charming town with great eateries). The cottage itself is just as beautiful as in the pictures. It was just a bit more rustic than anticipated. As my boyfriend had a cold, we used the floor heating in addition to the wood stove every day and ran up a bit of an electricity bill (as also continous ventilation was necessary). However, these were just minor distractions, we immensely enjoyed our stay in the cottage and really loved the North Pembrokeshire coast, one of the most beautiful landscapes we have seen in the UK.
Beautiful, characterful property . Didn't want to leave !
This beautiful property is characterful and perfectly located for easy access to the Pembrokeshire coastal path and secluded beaches yet within easy walking distances of the local village pubs. Our hosts Mike and Aradhana were welcoming, informative and friendly. The property is well equipped and if you love peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings you will not be disappointed. The sunsets were gorgeous ! Just fabulous !!!
What a gorgeous property - great location , beautiful setting along the coast- just perfect
Great property - tastefully decorated with an eye for mid century modern design. All home comforts, wood burner, bbq. Comfy bed. Friendly hosts - Mike took time to show us walks on the map. Best thing is the setting- really stunning to walk across the sheep fields and onto your own secluded beach. Highly recommended for couples wanting a rural escape in romantic setting.
Perfect location and hosts
We spend two weeks in the coach house which was fully equipped (with love and fresh flowers for a warm welcome) and totally clean. We felt like being home from the first minute. Especially picking spices from the farm garden for cooking was a great pleasure for us :-)
Aradhana and Mike were perfect hosts, gave lots of tipps for walks and things to do. Every recommendation was a 100% success. We already have spent lots of holidays in GB but never discovered so much special and breathtaking spots like here.
Will definitely return for the next stay in Pembrokeshire.
In any weather, and we had a few, this is a magical place
Our fourth visit. That should say it all.
The cottage is beautifully designed, interior really nicely done. The surroundings absolutely gorgeous- rolling hills and unspoiled beach settings. The private beach is amazing.
The cottage has everything you could possibly need. We will definitely be returning :)
The walk round Dinas Head is lovely and a pint and food in The Old Sailors a must.
The farm is spread along the coast so the coast can be accessed by walking across our fields. Our own beach Cwm Gwyllog is 350 metres away. The track down to it is a bit tricky and not suitable for the elderly. Pwllgwaelod beach is a 15 minute walk down the coastal path. Aberbach Beach is 20minutes in the other direction. There is a lovely sheltered beach at Cwm Y Eglwys, which is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive. Newport Sands is a long sandy beach 3 miles away, 10 mins by car.
Fishguard Harbour is 4 miles away for those crossing to Ireland. There is a railway line there accessing South Wales and London
1 mile to Dinas Village, 3 miles to Newport, 4 miles to Fishguard, 14 miles to St Davids.
Please note, even though there are 2 bedrooms, 1 large master bedroom and a small single bedroom, the Coach House is for 2 people only. This makes it ideal for couples (and if one snores, there is always the single bed in the small bedroom!) or 2 friends on a walking holiday. It also makes a good dressing room.
