Details

Tregynon Cottages are 4 Star Accredited stone built country cottages situated above the wide open Gwaun Valley and nestled below the Preseli Hills. They are in the heart of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, four miles from the village of Newport and the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. To one side stands proud Foel Eryr (Eagle Mountain) and to the other stands Carn Ingli (Mountain of Angles) and beyond that is the Atlantic Ocean. The Gwaun is a very special place: its tranquillity calls you to it and will lure you back time and again.

Tregynon Cottages offer warm, cosy and peaceful country cottages set in open and rolling farmland. But what makes them different is their focus on providing purpose built facilities for walkers and cyclists: a drying room with independent lockable storage; a map room for walking instruction, planning and local information; carriage to and from walking start and finish when feasible; and an indoor bike-friendly facility for housing, cleaning and repairing bikes.

The cottages are set in approximately one acre of land and consist of a two bedroom, two storey main residence (Dan Y Mynydd) which is lived in by Ian and Carol Pattinson – the owners – and two single storey cottages (Foxglove and Honeysuckle) which they rent out all year round. All the buildings date to the 16th century and are of local stone construction: they were all originally farm outbuildings.

Foxglove and Honeysuckle have been internally modernised and extensively refurnished to a high standard in late 2014. Visit Wales have awarded both cottages 4 star accreditation and assessed Tregynon Cottages as Walker Friendly and Bike Friendly. The cottages enjoy private parking and sit within lawned grounds surrounded by countryside and farmland. Both enjoy open views.

Ian and Carol know that more than anything else you, rightly, expect to receive a value for money experience during your holidays but you also recognise it is fair that you pay the right price for that experience. We believe that they have achieved the right balance and priced their cottages accordingly.

And they have also listened to what you want when you return from your day out. Regardless of whether you have had an energetic day’s walking, whether you have been sightseeing, relaxing by the coast or just sitting on a hill unwinding from your usual routine: you want the same things from your accommodation. You want to be able to sit in comfortable and warm surroundings and feel that you are completely free to make your own decisions about what to do next and when. And the unlimited superfast Wi-Fi will help your planning! Each room has its own en-suite enabling you to shower or bathe whenever you want to and there is constant hot water and central heating provided by green energy biomass system; you want to be able to prepare your own meals in your own well-appointed kitchen or know where to go if you want to eat out; you want to be able to listen to music, watch some television or a DVD, catch up on your e-mails, read a book or just sit in silence and soak in the atmosphere of your 500 year old surroundings; and you want to be able feel that Welsh ambience. If you need to wash your own clothes and have somewhere to hang them to dry you can; if you want to be able to sit outside in your own private area with your own garden furniture, you can. And when you get to your bed you want to be able to sleep soundly and in comfort knowing that you are secure in your 2 feet thick walled surroundings and dream of what the next day holds for you.

Equally, they have also thought carefully about what you don’t want! You don’t want hidden extras and so they are clear – all electricity and gas, water, towels, bedding and the starter packs are included in the price. If you do want to change your bedding or have new towels during a stay of less than 7 nights they will ask for a small payment but for over seven nights there's no charge.

These excellently placed and facilitated cottages are superb and well worth consideration.

SATNAV Users

Satnav users should enter the following postcode: SA65 9TU. But note that with 0.5 miles to go it will try to take you through some smart looking red-brick gates. Do not do so: instead look for the White sign board to Tregynon Cottages on opposite side of the road to the brick gates. This sigh will take you down a metalled road for 30 meters and then a second identical sign will point right down a farm track for about 0.5 miles and TC is signposted at the bottom of the track.
