About Anna Kavanagh

Anna moved to Pembrokeshire in the late '80's and has gradually created a number of beautiful places to stay. Originally from London it was always her dream to live somewhere wild and beautiful. She trained originally in Bristol to teach nursery/infants and special needs children and studied ceramics.

Part of the motivation behind moving to the area was to enable her children to go to the local Steiner School, Nant-y-Cwm which is just four miles away.

Ashera Pottery opened in '95. It is here that Anna works...inspired by the natural world and landscape around her...to paint...to pot...to build...Each year she does more teaching...there seems to be a real need for people to get in touch with their creative side...and for children and whole families to spend time together...making things...she enjoys passing on her skills...working with small groups and when weather permits outside...

For Anna one of the main delights of living here is the wonderful view with ever changing colours. The big skies and the red kites and the song of skylarks...

'One of my favourite treats is to watch the sun setting beyond the moor and the new Moon rising.'

As well as enjoying the immediate and magical surroundings of Trallwyn Anna loves the coves and beaches which are abundant in this part of the world. In 2002 Anna bought an old village house in Polopos Village Southern Spain...which she thinks of as a perfect compliment to Wales...She now spends some of the cooler months in a warmer climate...

Pottery teaching is usually available in the months when Anna is in Wales which includes most of the high Summer season...

Anna Kavanagh purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanksyou Anna, you've created such a wonderful retreat! It's really felt like 'a home from home' and allowed us to explore Pembrokeshire for the first time. We hope to become regulars, as the walks among such abundant wild life, beaches and friendly open people have made the holiday very special, all things we would like Seth to experience as he grows up. I need to come back with better walking boots to tackle those hills!

Thanks for letting us stay in this beautiful farmhouse. See you again soon we hope.

Family Christmas at The Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Staying in The Farmhouse at Trallwyn is cosy and such a tonic for the soul. We’ve just spent Christmas here with 11 of us in total. We all loved it and didn’t want to leave. There’s so much to do in the area either walking out on foot into the hills, or driving short distances to fabulous beaches and attractions. We have been coming to Trallwyn for almost 20 years and never tire of it. It’s a perfect place to recharge the batteries and escape the demands of modern life. Thoroughly recommend.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We weren't quite sure what to expect when we reserved the Farmhouse. We understood there were other cottages and a yurt in the same compound, but did not understand their relative locations. As it turned out, each option is fairly secluded (though some are connected and you can hear the water pipes), and we seldom ran into other guests. That said, this would be a great place for a large extended family to stay together. Anna is a kind soul and very accommodating. It's hard to express how cool it is to open the gate onto the moor and walk out to the Gors Fawr circle. We walked on the moor in sunlight, moonlight and mist. It was always gorgeous. The sheep were also very interesting. We loved that the house was fairly remote, but that we were able to get to St. Davids cathedral and other locations within an hour or two. The two runners in the family also enjoyed their early morning workouts on the quiet country lanes. Only one caution -- if you are tall, you might want to choose another unit or understand that you will need to crouch a little to use the shower. :)

Delightful Farmhouse in Pembrokeshire

  • 5 of 5

We loved the farmhouse, so full of character and beautifully renovated. the cottage is very cosy and in the evenings we enjoyed sitting round the wood stove.

Trallwyn is a great base for adventuring on the Pembrokeshire hills and coastline. We found the beaches to be stunning. The highlights for the children were seeing the dolphins in Cardigan bay, surfing and doing pottery with Anna on rainy days.

We recommend the farmhouse as a perfect getaway.

Car: recommended

Trallwyn Cottages + Yurt are situated in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, in the heart of the bluestone country. The setting is idyllic with direct access to the moor and mountains with it's sheep and wild ponies. Gors Fawr 5000 year old stone circle is just 5 minutes walk from the cottage, and a 2 hour walk takes you up to the quarry on Carn Meini where the bluestones were taken to make the inner ring of stonehenge. Ideal for walkers and people looking to truly get away from it all.

The beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline hosts the most spectacular scenery and beaches as well as wildlife. The cottages are situated 1/2 a mile from the small village of Mynachlogddu...and up a 200 yard track from the lane...all making at a very safe place for children...

Other Activities: Pottery tuition is available on site with Anna in the Pottery Workshop + is suitable for adults + children.
