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

Ideal house for a large gathering !!!

  • 4 of 5

The Old Rectory is a lovely house and was perfect for our annual family holiday. It is really well equipped and in a beautiful setting with wonderful views. The owners were very responsive to any enquiries and have actively responded to the feedback that we gave (e.g. chimenea for the garden) We have already booked to return for another holiday and look forward to seeing the planned improvements of the games room and completion of the landscaping of the garden.

Perfect spot for a sunny wedding week

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at the rectory to celebrate our marriage, we had family the first weekend and friends the next with a marquee in the garden. The house was great and provided us with everything we needed to have a perfect week - long walks on your door step, kayaking, cycling, pubs, cafes and a lovely house to relax in. The owner was always happy to answer my long lists of questions and was very easy going which gave it all a very laid back feel which is what we were after.

Would definitely recommend it - everybody loved the place.

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!

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.
