Cottage in Dinas Cross, Nr. Newport Town, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Walk To Its Own Beach
The Coach House is a rustic cottage facing south with wonderful views up over the Preseli Hills. It is in a secluded private farm courtyard at Ffynnonofi Farm, once a location for the John Huston film Moby Dick. The cottage is newly converted with terracotta stone floors, white washed walls, underfloor heating, a cosy wood burner and a large double bedroom with small en suite bathroom. It is superbly located for the Pembrokeshire Coastal path and it has it's own beach minutes walk away across our fields. There are areas to sit in the sun and have a barbecue and seats in sunny spots dotted around the farm buildings and garden. The cottage is spread over two floors. The ground floor is open plan making it a cosy place to prepare food and eat whilst the wood burner is blazing away. There is a desk and 'work area' for those who want to do something creative or maybe catch up with work. The upper floor has a main double bedroom with small en suite and a small rest room (dressing room) off it. There is a larger bathroom with shower and bath on the ground floor. The feel of the cottage is rustic and you'll find old welsh blankets, local slate sills and wooden oak beams rather than neat carpets!

Activity and Interests
The farm is spread along the coast so the coast can be accessed by walking across our fields. Our own beach Cwm Gwyllog is 350 metres away. The track down to it is a bit tricky and not suitable for the elderly. Pwllgwaelod beach is a 15 minute walk down the coastal path. Aberbach Beach is 20minutes in the other direction. There is a lovely sheltered beach at Cwm Y Eglwys, which is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive. Newport Sands is a long sandy beach 3 miles away, 10 mins by car.
Fishguard Harbour is 4 miles away for those crossing to Ireland. There is a railway line there accessing South Wales and London
1 mile to Dinas Village, 3 miles to Newport, 4 miles to Fishguard, 14 miles to St Davids.
Please note, even though there are 2 bedrooms, 1 large master bedroom and a small single bedroom, the Coach House is for 2 people only. This makes it ideal for couples (and if one snores, there is always the single bed in the small bedroom!) or 2 friends on a walking holiday. It also makes a good dressing room.
