About Deanna Kasta

Deanna Kasta is an Architect who has lovingly her beautiful Old Rectory and Sunny Retreat Cottage to the 4 star level it is now.

Deanna Kasta purchased this house in 1985

Why Deanna Kasta chose Fishguard, Newport, The Preseli Hills & Bluestone

Rarely does a property have such a splendid private location, such a lovingly done restoration and comfortable improvements. This 300 year Old Rectory and Sunny Retreat Cottage sits on the lower slope of Carn Ingli (mountain of Angels) with a spectacular view of the Newport Bay and cliffs . Just one mile from the small picturesque town Newport in North Pembrokeshire, it considered to be the connoisseur's choice of holiday areas in Wales.

What makes this house unique

If you have a large party, you can use all of the 3 living rooms, and acre of garden how you wish with no neighbours to disturb you. Your workshop, wedding, quite retreat, reunion or holiday will be undisturbed by others. You will be hard pressed to find anything like The Old Rectory and Cottage in such a beautiful pristine location and just a mile from the beautiful little town of Newport.

Half term in Pembrokeshire

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic week staying at the Old Rectory and Retreat. The house was brilliantly situated and well equipped. Newport the local village was just great - delicious restaurants, great pubs and shops; especially the butcher!... You could get everything you need there although Fishguard had a Tesco. Loads to do and stunning beaches close by especially Traith (you can see it from the house). Thoroughly recommend staying here - terrific value and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Owner's Response: After 14 years of offering my treasured Old Rectory and Retreat Cottage as a holiday destination it always fills me with joy to read the guest book and witness so many happy people having such a wonderful time in this precious place. All the regulars that have come back over a 10 year period notice the improvements each year and love this place as their home. As a team we wish to give the best service and we seem to attract such great people such as this family. Sharing this beloved coastline, area, town and house is such a rewarding adventure. It is only found by a discerning few. Indeed there are more coves, beaches and mountain paths than places to stay. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park will keep it that way. We invite all new and returning guests to a warm welcome at our Old Rectory and Retreat Cottage that can accommodate a luxury Cottage for 2 or up to 14 in the Rectory, or larger group up to 18 in both properties. Please email or call anytime for us to help you have a great time. Deanna, Colin and Gillie

Full of character and charm

  • 5 of 5

if your after old style nooks and crannies, country kitchen (with adjoining dining room), wood burner and cosy rooms (double bedrooms en suite) with great views, then this place is for you. Great little village of Newport, with two or three good pubs, just down the road and the Preseli's, Carn Ingli and the stunning Pembrokeshire coast just over the brow. Visit Pentre Ifan burial tomb (& Ty Canol Nature Reserve), the coastal path and have a pint in Tafarn Sinc after a walk over Foel Cwmcerwyn (highest point in the Preseli's, not far from where the famous Stonehenge Bluestones come from). Amazing!

Wir werden eventuell wiederkommen, müssen uns nur etwas überlegen wie wir unsere20 stündige Anreise von Bremen kürzer machen ;-)

Thanks a lot...

Superb, excellent value for money weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Old Rectory for a joint 30th birthday party for around 15 of us.

Although the journey was very long (with arrivals from all over the UK - furthest from Belfast) we were absolutely stunned by the location and house.

A real scenic position - you can see the sea and coast from the windows!

The facilities were excellent and we couldn't ask for anything better - a fully stocked kitchen (which we used considerably with breakfast, lunch & dinner) gorgeous bedrooms full of character & multiple bathrooms. There was also use of washing machine/tumble dryer/dishwasher etc should we needed it!

The rooms were absolutely perfect for our party with some couples, some singletons and a single bedroom for the very picky!

We had booked to go Karting on the Saturday which was about half an hours drive away and after we walked from the Old Rectory into the nearby town to the pub to sample the fresh fish & chips and local ale! A great day!

Honestly we all had such a wonderful weekend it was over all too quickly!

Thank you to Poppy, her partner and the owners for letting us stay - they were on hand to help whenever we needed. And we really appreciated Poppy dropping by to see us arrive!

Pembrokeshire is a place of magic, mystery & enchantment with wild landscapes, imbued with five-thousand years of deeply layered history and culture. From the Neolithics through to Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table, our area was of great spiritual significance to its early inhabitants, and an abundance of ancient monuments, relics, and sacred sites still surround us today.

A web of public footpaths take you right from our doorstep through incredible and varied landscapes. Explore fairy-tale wooded valleys, heather-clad open moorlands, the charged Bluestone outcrops of Carn-Ingli (Angel Mountain*), Newport's* Mile-long beach, and the wild windswept clifftops of the renowned Pembrokeshire coast path.

The medieval town of Newport remains in another era. The Norman church and castle stand proudly over the tightly winding streets, with family run shops and gnarly old pubs still bustling with true welsh charm.

Other Activities: The 180 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path offers superb hiking in pristine landscape.
