Overview

About the property

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!

The Owner purchased this in 2009

Why The Owner chose Clynderwen

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!

What makes this unique

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!

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.

We are 3 generations of a family and this cottage was ideal for us all

  • 5 of 5

Delightful, well equipped cottage with all furniture, fittings and linen of the highest quality.

Ideally placed for Pembrokeshire beaches, Preseli mountains, local walks, archaeology, castles and places to eat or just wander around this delightful smallholding.

If you want to relax in the depths of the country this is the place for you.

Our granddaughter, aged 4,was delighted with all the animals on the smallholding - geese, chickens, 2 dogs, sheep and pigs. Her highlight was Ella and her horses which she was thrilled to be able to ride.

Wonderful friendly hosts

In a lifetime of visiting self-catering cottages throughout the UK this is one of the best

Fabulous location, wonderful cottage and brilliant owners

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our two children aged 7 and 9. Claire and Angus provided us with a warm welcome and the leaflets and guide were a godsend. The cottage is ideally placed to explore Wales' West coast and is set in the most idyllic location. We loved bodyboarding at Newgale the best!!

A little bit of Welsh Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful Welsh cottage.

It is set in the most stunning of countryside and there really is something for everyone. Loved being able to step out the door and go for a run/walk and feel totally immersed in nature. Its making me smile just thinking about it. The abundance of beaches within short drives of the cottage made for fantastic days out. We also visited a number of the standing stones in the area and went on some lovely walks with the kids. If you want the best crab sandwiches in Wales you should pay a visit to "The Old Pharamacy" in Solva...Yum!

Our two little ones (5 & 3) also fell in love with the cottage and the farm. So much so that on more than one occasion on our trips out around Pembrokeshire they would ask when they could go back to their holiday cottage :D They adored meeting the pigs and feeding them our food scraps, following the geese around, clucking at the hens, playing on the slide and the lovely wooden play house. Their highlight was definitely Ella and her beautiful horses. Everyone who will listen gets to hear about Ella and Lavender (and all the other lovelies)!!!

Claire and Angus are fantastic hosts. We arrived to a fantastic welcome pack of goodies and also treated us to some delicious goose eggs and freshly picked lettuce. Claire let us join her on a visit to check the sheep and Ella was just fabulous with the children. Whilst their home is next door to the cottage we didn't feel like we were intruding on their daily lives and we were free to get on with our holiday.

The cottage itself is lovely and has everything you could possibly need. Decent wifi was an unexpected bonus. Our only disappointment was the weather was too warm to light the log fire...HA! Not a bad complaint ;)

We loved our stay at this small holding.

  • 5 of 5

As two busy 30-something city workers we wanted to enjoy some peace and quiet and a week of countryside living, and we got that in droves at this idyllic hide-away.

The location, farmhouse and rental cottage are all very attractive, and being surrounded by an array of animals including hens, geese and horses it felt very Beatrix Potter-esque. Indeed our private courtyard was so pretty it looked like something from one of her books.

The location is fantastic - very quiet and accessed through fields of lambs. It is also really well placed for all of the touristy things you might want to do in Pembrokeshire such as visiting the beautiful beaches at Newport Sands, Barafundle and Tenby, historic houses and sites like Pembroke Castle and St David's Cathedral etc. There was a superb pub The Golden Lion located nearby where we had two of the best meals we have ever had.

As guests we were made to feel very welcome but Claire and Angus were perfect hosts, we had our own private entrance gate, own place to park and while they were always on hand if required, we were able to get on with our holiday without being unnecessarily disturbed.

We came back from our trip feeling invigorated from all the country air, the kindness of local people, the beautiful fresh food, and the seaside and country walks. An absolutely perfect place to stay - we cannot recommend it highly enough! Five star in every way! We will definitely be re-booking.

Location

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.
