A lawn and cottage-style garden wrap around the outer walls of the house and you can sit and watch the comical and very friendly troop of chickens that potter around the farmyard and gardens.

About the location
Newport 3 miles; Cardigan 9 miles; Fishguard 10 miles; Haverfordwest 22 miles.
Felindre Farchog is a pretty North Pembrokeshire hamlet boasting a popular pub, The Salutation Inn. Together with the riverside village of Nevern and the tiny picturesque town of Newport these three are collectively referred to as “the jewels in the crown” of Pembrokeshire and South West Wales. Felindre Farchog rests beside the River Nevern in a wooded valley or cwm, three miles upstream from the medieval coastal town of Newport and within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It sits central to the Preseli Hills, close to the Gwaun Valley and within walking distance of the iconic Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber, Pentre Ifan Woods and Ty Canol Woods. Incidentally, Pentre Ifan is built from the same blue stone as Stonehenge having been quarried just a mile away in Brynberian. A gentle walk along the river will find you in the village of Nevern, home to the Trewern Pub. Here you will find an ancient Celtic cross and the famous bleeding Yew trees firmly rooted in the grave yard of Saint Brynach’s Church. Three miles away the medieval sea side town of Newport has become a mecca of quality cafés, restaurants and pubs. You can sit outside its three cafes in Market Street and look up at its ancient castle and Saint Mary’s Church or down towards the sea with its once busy harbour. Again, close by is Newport Golf Links and Restaurant with stunning views across Cardigan Bay, on a clear day Ireland is visible. You won’t have to travel far to enjoy an abundance of days out exploring fantastic mountains or the sandy beaches of South West Wales, just a few miles away in either direction. The area is steeped in Celtic history, mystery and Arthurian legend. Situated on the A478 the T5 bus service runs hourly between Aberystwyth and Haverfordwest and stops outside the pub and the property. This bus will link you to the train and the Poppitt Rocket and the Stumble Shuttle, buses used by walkers along the 187 mile long Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The whole area, including a possible day trip on the Fishguard Ferry to Ireland, is easily accessed by car or bike.
