    “The Star Mill is an amazing relaxing place that is very much home-from-home.”

    There is plenty of room for everyone and it is very well stocked with everything that you could need (from cooking utensils to Games, Books and DVDs). It was great to sit out on the decking in the evening watching the bat's and enjoying the peace and quiet. ...

    There is plenty of room for everyone and it is very well stocked with everything that you could need (from cooking utensils to Games, Books and DVDs). It was great to sit out on the decking in the evening watching the bat's and enjoying the peace and quiet. The only downsides were that it is unbearably hot upstairs and even with the fans on and the windows open it was very difficult to sleep. This was because the boiler (which always seems to be on) is located in between the bedrooms. The other downside is that there is a very strong smell of Fuel / Oil downstairs due to the Oil (for the heating) being located right beneath the downstairs bathroom and master bedroom.

The property

Newcastle Emlyn 7.5 miles.

An impressive former water mill, nestled in the valley in the centre of the pretty hamlet of Star in Pembrokeshire.

The property is a perfect base for families or groups of friends looking to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside, yet only a short drive from the beautiful beaches of West Wales.

Set over four floors (five levels), there are four comfortable bedrooms on split-level floors, with the family bathroom on the ground floor, together with a king-size bedroom which is en-suite.

There is a spacious kitchen with dining area and woodburner, and comfy seating leading to doors onto a raised veranda and decking area.

There are steps up to a large sitting room, also with woodburner, where you can relax with a refreshing drink and enjoy the quietness of the countryside.

Outside, you can sit in the decked veranda and listen to the babble of the stream and series of small cascading waterfalls, or take the steps down to the stream and sit and watch the stream swirl in the pools and under the bridge.

The small hamlet of Star is surrounded by the rolling Pembrokeshire countryside with footpaths criss-crossing the area.

Newcastle Emlyn is a thriving working market town, on the River Teifi, and nearby Cenarth, with its fabulous falls, is renowned for fishing.

You are ideally placed to explore the wonderful coastline of Cardigan Bay with nearby sandy beaches such as Poppit Sands, Mwnt or Aberporth.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as wildlife spotting at The Teifi Marshes Nature reserve, just outside the popular market town of Cardigan.

Cardigan Bay offers dolphin spotting boat trips, fishing and adventure sports, such as coasteering, as well as being a short drive from the beautiful Preselli Hills, the Wales Coastal Path and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Slightly further afield, to the north you will find the popular harbour town of Aberaeron with its pretty multi-coloured harbourside houses, together with the National Trust property of Llanerchaeron close by.

To the south why not take a trip to the pretty town of Narberth, renowned for its boutique style shopping and a just a little further down the coast opens up the stunning South Wales beaches at the impressive seaside town of Tenby.

A spacious retreat alongside pretty waterfalls, just a short drive from a popular market town, ideal for groups looking to spend quality time together, enjoy countryside walks in the Cych Valley and days trips to the beautiful coastline of West Wales.
