About Gareth and Luci Chapman
We are Gareth, Luci and Lola, the dog. We moved from Oxford where Gareth ran his own building company and Luci worked in events. We moved here looking for an easier pace of life, in a part Wales we loved, and knew well, having holidayed here for many years. After searching for a few years we fell in love with Fynnonddewi and it's lovely rural location the moment we saw it and just knew it was the place for us. We have only been here since November 2017, but are already undertaking a comprehensive programme of upgrades to make your stay even more special. We are always on hand to help whether it be issues with the cottage or information about the local area, and look forward to welcoming you to this lovely part of Pembrokeshire.
Gareth and Luci Chapman purchased this Farmhouse in 2017
Why Gareth and Luci Chapman chose Haverfordwest
We fell in love with natural beauty of Pembrokeshire and the variety of things to do. There are peaceful walks, along the coast path or the Preseli Hills, or for the more active, coasteering, sea kayaking, or surfing. There are beaches galore, many of which allow dogs or have a dog friendly area. The choice is yours whether it's building sandcastles or exploring rockpools and many can be deserted even in the height of summer. There is wildlife all around whether it be seals, dolphins or those at the Folly Farm zoo. Pembrokeshire is a birdwatchers paradise with the islands of Skomer and Skokholm being some of the most important seabird breeding sites in Europe. We have our own share of wildlife on site too with foxes, badgers and rabbits. Autumn and winter sees large flocks of ducks on our pond, along with large flocks of lapwings in the neighbouring fields, buzzards and red kite are often seen overhead and tawny and little owls hunt at night.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We are set in rural surroundings just a couple of minutes from Solva, surrounded by 12 acres of our own land and many more beyond that. We are directly about 1.5 miles from the coast which is easily accessible via a footpath direct from the property. The nearest road is several hundred yards away so there is no need to worry about children and traffic. Activities can also be arranged either at the property or elsewhere or we can provide a team of caterers, should the chef of the group fancy a night off. We also offer a 15% discount for whole weeks booked between October and Easter, (except Christmas and New Year), which is automatically applied on checkout.
Max guests:6 (sleeps up to 6 adults)

Peaceful and beautiful
Lovely house well equipped and close to nature and the Pembrokeshire coast
Thanks for your lovely review Jan and so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Ffynnonddewi.
We would love to have you to stay again!
Luci & Gareth
Peaceful, well appointed and rustic.
We had a very restful stay in rustic and very well appointed accommodation. On arrival there was a bottle of prosecco and a slab of bara brith waiting for us which was a nice touch. The house was spacious and the beds comfy. It was convenient for the nearby sea cliffs which is what we were principally there for, being climbers. Gareth the owner made us feel very welcome. Recommended.
Thanks for the kind words, Michael.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and managed to enjoy some good weather to enjoy your climbing.
Hopefully see you guys back at Ffynnonddewi again in the future.
Very best wishes
Gareth and Luci
There are many beautiful beaches in the area. the closest small cove, (sandy at low tide) is within walking distance.
Newgale (3miles) and Whitesands (7 miles) are large expansive beaches, great for surfing, equipment hire and lessons are available at Newgale.
Pretty Solva harbour has a sandy beach at low tide and is a great spot for crabbing when the tide is in.
The nearest local shops are at Solva, including the excellent Bay View Stores, next door to which is Something Fishy, where you can buy local crab, lobster and sometimes wet fish, during the summer months all caught by the owner.
Solva also has 4 pubs all of which serve food.
Further afield is St David's which has further pubs restaurants and cafes as well as a butchers/fishmongers, greengrocers, supermarket, delicatessen, banks and other tourist shops.
Haverfordwest has Tesco and Morrisons along with a retail park, with Debenhams, Next, TK max etc, but is very much a working town rather than a tourist destination.
The nearest big town centre is Carmarthen
Due to the rural location a car is pretty much necessary, however the Haverfordwest to Fishguard bus does run close by on the main road and calls at Solva and St David's. During the summer there are also several coastal services, most of which run through either St David's or Haverfordwest, making it ideal for walkers.
Haverfordwest 13 miles
St David's 5 miles
Carmarthen 45 miles
Aberteifi(Cardigan) 32 miles
