    Although it's tiny and only suitable for two people it is well equipped, comfortable, clean and well maintained. The owner lives next door and is very friendly and helpful without encroaching on your privacy. Highly recommend this cottage for seeing the area.

  • "What a fantastic little cottage is Ffynnon Tom!"

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is perfect for couples with everything you need for your holiday. Mr & Mrs Reynolds are the lovely couple who own the cottage and they are just perfect. Such a friendly and helpful couple. We chose to stay in Trefin because of its location to the coastal path, which is within walking distance of an incredible section of the path. The sunsets over the sea, at the end of the village, are spectacular.

  • "We had a great week staying at Ffynnon Tom."

    The property was exactly as advertised but actually exceeded our expectations. It was comfortable, warm, cosy, and very well equipped. the hosts were great, sorting out a couple of small problems quickly and efficiently. I hasten to add that the problems were our fault! They were always there when needed. The village was interesting. Check out the second hand books in the old telephone box! Lots of lovely walks nearby with fantastic scenery. Trefin is fairly central for visiting a number of interesting villages and only a few miles from St David's which is a must to visit. There is a small Spar and a petrol station a couple of miles back up on the main road. it is well stocked. there is also a Tesco Express in Fishguard. We had a great relaxing week, and hope to return one day Ann and Gwynn Bowyer

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Ffynnon Tom."

    It’s a delightful cosy cottage, just great for my husband and I as it’s so close to the coastal path for coastal path walking which is what we did all week. The cottage was immaculate and the owners has thought of everything that you may require in a holiday cottage. The was free view To and the internet connection was very good. The beds was very comfortable. There was plenty of hot water and plenty of space for clothing and food storage. Beside the parking space there was a small patio area with two chairs and a table (sun umbrella available). What a lovely little sun trap that area is and we had evenings sitting out and chatted to the owners who were very helpful, informative and interested to know how our day went without being intrusive. Trefin is such a peaceful place and Ffynnon Tom was just lovely. Hope to return one day and would definitely recommend this property especially if you intend on getting out and about on the coastal path. Thank you Mr and Mrs Reynolds for making us feel so welcome and sharing your local knowledge with us. The weather was fabulous for our stay. All in all a brilliant holiday.

  • "A lovely barn conversion, very clean and well equipped, bedding and decor spot on."

    Mr's and Mr Reynolds were friendly, obliging and nice people to talk to. Nothing to do with this great central location for touring and coastal path walks we found Corona Virus regulations meant you either cooked your own evening meal or had a take away, E.G eating out was very limited. for evenings you ideally need a couple of good books.

    The village itself, though not tiny, lacks facilities so ones own transport is all but essential. There are some wonderful walks nearby, some of which can be done from the cottage itself.

    Thank you for your feedback, the village is a local rural village, there is a frequent bus route that runs every hour from the property to the village. we are glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay at the property. Property Owner

  • "The cottages we have booked via Sykes have both been excellent and the letting families have been welcoming and friendly so we have very much enjoyed our stays."

    The only unpleasant aspect to using the Sykes service to book a holiday (or even checking cottage availability) is being absolutely overwhelmed by the resulting number of advertising e-mails nagging us to book another. How many holidays do you think the average working couple can take in a year??? You know that we are aware of your services and, if they were any good, any consumer would automatically return to check out the possibilities for their next holiday with you first if not for fear of the subsequent assault on their inbox. All the people we know who use Sykes complain about this as well. You are alienating people not encouraging them I am cancelling the account and blacklisting you on the anti-spam utility until WE decide we might take another break - then who knows where we will look.

About the location


Fishguard 15.5 miles; Pembroke 28.7 miles.

The city of St Davids is situated on the far south west coast of Wales. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II, it is the smallest city in the UK, with its magnificent cathedral dating back to the 12th century and the ruins of the Bishop's Palace, both wonderful buildings to explore. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, St Davids is a delightful place with an array of unique shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs, surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery. Nearby Whitesands Bay is one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, and walkers will delight in the spectacular views from the coastal path which runs around the complete coastline of Pembrokeshire. Local buses will help with your walking plans, so that you can walk several stretches of the path with totally different landscapes and views each day. Dolphin spotting from land or from the many boat trips to local islands are a must, and are also perfect for enjoying the wonderful array of birds in their natural habitat. St Davids is the perfect holiday destination, whether you are looking for a quiet relaxing break, wonderful walking, a round of golf, an exploration of magnificent castles or fun-filled days at Oakwood Theme Park, farm parks and much more.

Note: Babes-in-arms only.
