    “Maengwyn was very comfortable, with good facilities.”

    The garden - with a stream in the far top corner - was very peaceful and the hay meadow beyond was lovely. The walks listed in the handbook in the house were useful; I'd really recommend the walk through Aberfforest to Dinas cove- and then carry on to go around Dinas island. Maengwyn was a good spot for access to Newport, Fishguard and only about 30 mins to St David's, also, for 2 days, we did local walks which didn't require any car use. Thanks to the owners, Ann and Stephen, for ...

Thanks to the owners, Ann and Stephen, for providing additional local botanical information.

The property

Maengwyn is a detached farmhouse dating back to about 1820.

It's packed full of traditional features, inglenook fireplace and beamed ceilings create a cosy atmosphere whatever the weather.

Combined with all the modern comforts we know and love. Behind the property are three hay and flower meadows that are a haven for all flora and fauna, you are welcome to wander through them on the mown paths.

There are many rare wild flowers such as marsh orchids and the shallow ponds are a haven for aquatic plants and wildlife.

The owners have planted heritage apple trees in one of the meadows. Set in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park just off the A487 between the village of Dinas Cross and Newport with their individual shops, pubs, galleries and eateries, this is a wonderful holiday base.

The coast path is just a 20 minute walk from the house through a wooded valley with a high waterfall to Aberfforest beach where you can also access cliff top walks and the lovely beach at Cwm yr Eglwys with its ruined church which was destroyed in a terrible storm in the 1850s.

Cwm yr Eglwys is a busy beach where you can kayak, launch your small boats, and take part in all traditional beach activities. The owners are happy to share their extensive knowledge of their land and the natural history of Pembrokeshire with their guests.

About the location

DINAS CROSS

Newport 2.5 miles.

The scattered village of Dinas Cross has a well stocked mini market store and a pub, and nestles between the Preseli Mountains and the wonderful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Pwll Gwaelod and Cwm-Yr-Eglwys beaches are both minutes away, both with breathtaking scenery offering the opportunity for tranquil days in perfect settings, and are almost unnoticed by the general public unless they leave the main route through the village, with there being a petrol station, two pubs a fish and chip shop, as well as a restaurant down at Pwll Gwaelod beach. Nearby Newport is a quirky seaside town steeped in history, with various shops, tea rooms and pubs and is also a great place to go boating. With castles, mills, craft centres and golf courses galore scattered all over this beautiful Welsh county, this is the perfect base for a break all year round.

Note: Large orchard garden with wildlife areas - perfect for exploring but please supervise your children.
Note: Please bring your own beach towels and cot linen.
Note: A starter supply of logs is provided for the stoves. More are available to purchase locally.
