Detached Traditional Welsh Cottage Set Within Pembrokeshire National Par

Overview

Property

Updated: 19-Nov-2016
Cottage in Morvil, Nr. Newport, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Peaceful Rural Retreat on Self Sufficient Farm with Views of the Preseli Mountains

Our stunning Georgian stone cottage has been renovated to strike a balance between tradition, luxury and sustainability, from the thick stone walls to the luxurious hansgrohe shower; from the warmth of the Aga wood burning stove, to the convenience of a modern kitchen equiped with all mod con's; from the original wooden joists of the grain store room to access to your very own utility/boot room. Whilst retaining many of its original features, the cottage wherever possible, has been renovated using natural & local materials and is environmentally friendly - the heart of which is the air source pump which provides radiant underfloor heating throughout the cottage. All furnishings have been individually selected and are of a high/exceptional standard. Outside, you can roam our 11 acre site and enjoy many of our quiet and tranquil seating areas, whether in the sun or the shade of the trees.

About the Owner

We are a small family of 4 living out our dream in rural Wales. We have always wanted our very own smallholding, where we could give self sufficiency a real go but remain linked to a very active and supportive local area. This location has enabled us to live that dream, and every month we are getting closer to reality. Having finished the holiday cottage, we have now a range of livestock including geese, chickens, pigs and sheep. We have also managed to erect our poly tunnel so are now busy planting our own fruit and vegetables. Tom and Barbara Good eat your heart out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week's holiday! You have clearly put a lot of thought and effort into this cottage, which is just picture perfect. Particularly liked the White Company dressing gowns and the crisp cotton linen. We all slept so well. Can we come again soon?



Just a fabulous cottage in such a beautiful location. Having never been to Pembrokeshire before, this has been an amazing week. The kids particularly loved the beaches and playing in the streams. Thank you ever so much for reminding our children what real outdoor play can be like!.



You deserve for this cottage to be booked 52 weeks of the year. Its far from the hustle and bustle but still with easy access to everything you could want - simply stunning.

Deep country rural idyll

  • 5 of 5

Angus and Claire Have renovated their barn to a very high standard. It sits near the main farmhouse with a charming courtyard outside populated with friendly birds and chickens. The setting is deep country, far from a road and even then, the roads round there are quiet! It's a gorgeous valley surrounded by great paths and hills to walk. Lovely trips to dramatic coastline and great towns. But the draw here is a magical escape surrounded by animals and nature. The cottage has cost underfloor heating and all mod cons. The kids sleep up on a mezzanine level with their own sitting room with books and toys. We had a great time here and the hosts are full of information and help and let the kids help feed the animals.

All in all a fabulous place. Delighted we went there and hope to return .

Location

From the Owner

Pembrokeshire is just an unbelievable county. Even now we are still exploring new and wonderful beaches and attractions. Where else in the UK can you have a beach all to yourselves, enjoy a BBQ whilst watching the sun go down. It really has so much to offer for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors...its just a dream come true and we have only been here over a year!

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

No other county in Britain has more Blue Flag beaches or Seaside Award beaches than Pembrokeshire. With over 50 beaches to choose from, there is a beach to meet every need whether you want to sail, surf, kayak, rockpool, fish, swim or sunbathe.

Travel:

Driving by car, we are approximately 2 hours from Cardiff (our closest regional airport) heading west along the M4. Coming by train, the closest station would be Clarbeston Road, from where by arrangement we could pick you up. Although a car is not absolutely essential if you wanted to do lots of walking from the cottage, it is certainly recommended to fully enjoy all Pembrokeshire has to offer. Remember the traffic, or lack of it, makes driving here a delight.

Distances:

Cardigan; Home of our kids favourite sweet shop, Yum Yum's! - 17 miles.

Newport; Fabulous family beach, with restaurants and cafes to boot - 8 miles.

Haverfordwest; Great selection of shops and supermarkets - 12 miles.

Fishguard; From here, why not take a ferry and visit Ireland for the day? - 7 miles.

Narberth; Definitely worth a trip - a posh market town - 15 miles.

Carmarthan - 34 miles.

Tenby - 26 miles.

St David's - Definitely worth a trip to see its beautiful cathedral - 24 miles.

Further Details:

For nearby shops, you really are spoilt for choice. Within a 12 mile radius you can enjoy the convenience of the large supermarkets, such as Tesco's, Morrisons and Co-Op as well as the delights of local produce from farm shops and farmers markets. These provide local and organic beef, pork and lamb, fresh fish and a selection of welsh cheeses and fruit and veg.

As for places of interest and leisure activities, we are perfectly located to enjoy so many of Pembrokeshire's key attractions, including - Numerous National Trust beaches and Coastal Path; Folly Farm & Oakwood, both are Wales' premier farm & theme park attractions; Casteil Henllys (Iron Age Fort); Llys-y-fran Country Park Trout Fishing and Reservoir; Boat trips to the islands of Skomer, Skokholm, Grassholm and Ramsey (a must for bird lovers and those wanting to watch dolphins!); St.David's cathedral; Carew, Pembroke and Picton Castles; Blue Lagoon Leisure Park; Scolton Manor; Anna Ryder-Richardson's Manor House Wildlife Park; The West Wales Adventure - where you can hire or have lessons on sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and surfing.

For those wanting to enjoy the many restaurants and pubs that Pembrokeshire has to offer, you won't be disappointed. Our favourite family restaurant is Something's Cooking, only 7 miles away in Letterston where you will be treated to the best fish and chips Wales has to offer. For those of you looking for more fancy food, with many of Pembrokeshire's restaurants and pubs using fresh local ingredients, you really should be in for a gastronomic Welsh experience. Whatever your taste, just let us know when you arrive and we will do our best to point you in the right direction. The nearest pubs including those in Rosebush, Dinas and Newport, certainly feature in good pub guides.

Facilities

From the Owner

This property is genuinely unique. In our very rural location, we have ponds, streams, woods and open fields and views, where we can listen and see the sheep, cattle and birds of prey. That said, within a 15 or so minute drive, you can be shopping in Laura Ashley or M&S on the outskirts of Haverfordwest or swimming in the sea at Newport Sands. Truly remarkable!

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The property is accessible via your very own gate leading to the main courtyard, where you find both the cottage and barns and the owners farmhouse. Parking is plentiful and you are free to explore and play in the full 11 acre site. We have rope swings, slides and plenty of places for the children to set up camp and for the adults lots of places to sit and set up your BBQ. Being a smallholding, we have completely free range chickens (eggs for sale!) and shortly, sheep and pigs. We are also surrounded by open farmland, so unfortunately we do not permit dogs no matter how small or well behaved. For those of you with young children, we advise you that there is a range of open but shallow ponds within the smallholding, and a running stream. Parents must ensure they will be supervising their children. We have young children's toys and bikes and there is a pushchair and adult bikes, with childseat too, for you to borrow. Additional items can be agreed, including food shopping. Outside: The cottage is situated within 11 acres of a wonderful Welsh smallholding, complete with open fields, streams, ponds and woodland areas. All of the site is accessible and deserves a viewing! There are large areas of common land within walking distance from the house and these take you to greater and higher viewing areas of the Preseli range. Within the immediate vicinity of the cottage is your own sunken garden surrounded by Preseli stone, where you can sit and relax using the garden table and chairs, before enjoying a BBQ (provided). We have swings, slides and a playhouse for children, including a zipwire and various rope swings and you may borrow bicycles from the barn. Further logs are available for the woodburner from out of the barn - the first bag is supplied with our compliments. Utility Room: Opposite the cottage is a small barn, which contains your very own utility and storage room, where you can store your bikes surf boards etc. This utility room contains a chest freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, boot basin and drying rack etc. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Luxury bath towels, bathrobes and bedlinen are included in the price, together with tea towels etc. There are supplies of soap, shampoo and washing liquids and the property is cleaned once per week, at changeover. Other: Up the spiral staircase and past the second bedroom, there is a second living room with access direct to the garden. In here, you will find a double sofa bed, rocking chair as well as a selection of books, magazines, board games and radio/CD etc.
