Details

Attractive old stone cottage, 400 yards from the nearest neighbouring cottage and is in an elevated position, not far from a tiny stream; there are extremely distant views of St. Bride's Bay to the south from the upstairs windows.

Garn-y-Mul is situated one mile from the village of Croesgoch, which is itself six miles north of the beautiful city of St. David's, two miles from the harbour of Porthgain (home of the popular Sloop pub and The Shed bistro) and nine miles south-west of Fishguard. The whole area abounds in varied sandy beaches, rocky inlets and picturesque harbours. The magnificent expanses of Newgale and Whitesands beaches are both less than 10 minutes drive away and are renowned for their excellent surfing, particularly in September and October.

Accommodation consists of two bedrooms one with a double bed, one with two single adult sized bunks. A cot is available. Please ask if it is required. A convertible double sofa bed is situated in the large sitting room, which features a stone fireplace with a wood/coal burning stove and newly tiled floor. There is a recently tiled upstairs bathroom with w.c. and heated towel rail. There is a second w.c. downstairs, off the entrance hall with a new power shower and heated rail.

The light, spacious kitchen has a dining area, an electric cooker, automatic washing machine, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, an attractive Welsh dresser and fitted cupboards. We hope you consider it to be amply equipped.

Water heating is by immersion heater and there are night storage heaters downstairs and portable or in the bedrooms fixed instant heaters for additional cold weather use. Bed linen is provided, but not towels or tea towels. The upstairs beds and put-u-up have summer (4 tog) duvets, but heavier ones are available. There are plenty of additional blankets for winter.

Garn-y-mûl is approached down a narrow country lane, which is so quiet that in some places there is grass growing in the middle of it. Your car may be parked by the side of the road or you may pull off up a short drive beside the house. There is a completely wild garden of about a quarter of an acre with two areas of short cut grass, one is more lawn. The hedgebank at the bottom of the garden is the home of badgers and foxes and a splendid variety of birdlife frequents the vicinity, particularly near the stream where sedge and grasshopper warblers and marsh tits, can sometimes be heard in early spring and summer. In February and March there are snowdrops and daffodils in abundance.

The Square and Compass garage with general store is about a mile towards Fishguard selling coal, and a wide range of goods. The Artramont pub does good meals as does the Sloop and Shed in Porthgain.

The Pembrokeshire coast path is famous for its breathtaking views, and wild flowers to rival the Alpine meadows, in early summer, and for the presence of the rare peregrine falcon and chough. The times for the best bird-watching are - Spring and Autumn for migrating birds passing through, and early Summer for the amazing flocks of nesting birds to be seen on local islands. In the Autumn the Atlantic grey seals have their pups, some of which are clearly visible from the cliffs at St Nicholas and south of St Justinian. The National Park runs a series of guided walks and talks on local flora and fauna, geographical formations and the many ancient sites of archaeological interest in Pembrokeshire. Cycling in the area is most pleasurable, along quiet flower-banked lanes with few hills and very little traffic.
