About the Owner
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...
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have stayed in a Yurt before but this one was the best, having a brilliant woodstove, a great kitchen area + we really liked the privacy aspect. We appreciated having our own private kitchen + shower + loo. And also loved sitting out on the benches to catch the morning + evening sun, it was a real treat. We had two fires outside with other guests staying here, and we were lucky enough to have musicians here so we had singing round the camp fire! Such a relaxing, peaceful place truly off the beaten track. We will go home refreshed ready for the new term. Thanks Anna we loved all your special touches.

We loved the yurt holiday
We had a wonderful holiday last year staying in Trallwyn Yurt. Having a woodstove for those chilly evenings really makes it a special camping experience. We loved the private setting and the cosy interior. We especially enjoyed being able to walk straight onto the moor + up into the hills.
From the Owner
“Each Cottage has something special and unique the Cowshed is stunning and quirky+different! It has been renovated using many natural materials and has a very special feel to it! The Farmhouse is full of character original features, the studio full of charm+very low price...”
Activity and Interests
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.
