  • "We had the best time away."

    This little cottage was perfect. So cosy and very well equipped. We'd love to stay again!

  • "Good welcoming arrangements and we were impressed that Kate texted us on the morning after our arrival to check that we had settled in satisfactorily."

    The cottage is very well-equipped and in a good location. Excellent wi-fi and very friendly neighbours plus in the Ship Inn where the view from the beer garden is to die for!

  • "What a lovely place to stay - white bedding and fluffy white towels."

    Kitchen is equipped with everything that you need( including milk and welshcakes). It’s just 5 minutes walk to the coastal path where you can head north to Abercastle or head south to Porthgain and Abereiddi. Plenty of books and games also available in the cottage - so relax and enjoy. Excellent communication from owner.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage in a perfect location."

    The cottage is very spacious with a large open plan living area but is also cosy with it's low beams, log burning stove & comfy sofas. The kitchen was very well equipped (much better than most holiday homes) & the whole cottage was immaculately clean. The children loved the room with bunk beds & the main bedroom is beautiful with high ceilings & a very comfy king size bed. There is a lot of really useful information about the area kept in the cottage, with some beautiful walks right on the doorstep. Lovely to be able to be on the coast path within a few minutes of leaving the cottage & the views are breathtaking. Our favourite walk was across the headland to Porth Gain & the Sloop Inn. The children loved crabbing in Solva Harbour & bodyboarding at Whitesands beach in St Davids.

  • "Lots of information beforehand so we knew what to expect, especially at this time re Covid measures."

    A lovely cottage with plenty of room and everything we needed. An ideal location for walking the coast paths.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottage is well placed for access to the Coastal Path and even if the pub in the village doesn't look exciting, The Sloop in Porthgain and The Shed just a mile or so away friendly and buzzing."

    The café in the village is pleasant enough and cooks a good full breakfast. The cottage is on the village road but very little passing traffic and there is a small outside area with table and chairs etc (the vegetation could do with a trim). Easy off road just 50 yards away, the cottage itself is cosy and well equipped and more spacious than we had anticipated. A couple of low beams are really not a problem and there is heaps of useful info left in the cottage as well as games, books etc. For our purposes, a comfortable base from which to explore the area, walking and cycling, it was perfect.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this lovely old cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean & well furnished, the kitchen was well stocked & the heating system good. Reassuring Covid safety measures had been taken. Trefin is in an ideal location close to the coastal path but quiet & peaceful. We would definitely stay there again.

  • "Bathroom is located downstairs & no mention of this in cottage description."

    Not ideal for elderly people. Low ceilings downstairs & coming down the stairs. If over 5ft 5 ins tall, you need to remember.

    Thank you for your comments. The shower room is downstairs as stated in the property description. As a character property there are two low beams, one over the stairs and one between the kitchen and dining area. The sitting room is also beamed but with sufficient room for 6 footers and the remaining rooms have high vaulted ceilings. Property Owner

  • "The property is in serious need of updating and upgrading."

    Furniture is old and very worn and cleanliness was an issue . Very disappointed in our stay

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you felt that the property was outdated. The furniture is in keeping with the age and style of the property. A new sofa however, will arrive this week. We would have welcomed the chance to respond to any cleaning concerns you had during your stay and if you had contacted us, such issues would have been addressed at the time. Thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The description and photo did not truly reflect its situation."

    Cottage on road and one of a row of houses looking onto other properties on the opposite side of road. Outside space was back of property but no privacy space, adjoined to next property and overlooked by parking area of other properties and other houses. Warning should have been given for low ceilings and stairs awkward for less able especially when toilet was downstairs. It was only after I had booked that information was given that there was no parking near the property but had to park in car park 3 properties up and not in view of house.

    Thank you for your feedback. We do feel that the situation of the property is clearly depicted in the website images. The ground floor shower room with walk-in shower, basin and wc is also listed correctly. The car park is a couple of doors down from the property and this is also listed for viewers. Based on your feedback, you will see that a warning has now been added on the website, with regard to the low beam on the staircase. Thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We found a very large folder with local information on places to eat, walks etc which was very useful."

    There was also milk and biscuits on our arrival which was a nice gesture. This is our first holiday with Sykes and would certainly recommend others to use this company (it was recommended to us by a friend).

  • "We all had a lovely few days at Pant y Ffynnon."

    The cottage was very well equipped, clean and is in an excellent location for exploring all the local area has to offer. We were kept well informed about the cottage and the area by the owner Kate and property manager Collette. Also all the extra precautions were very well catered for regarding Covid. Hope to be back in the future. Many thanks Adrian

  • "This cottage is beautifully situated."

    It is only a short 50m walk from a gorgeous woodland footpath which leads down to a stunning cove. While we visited we were lucky enough to watch a seal bobbing around in the water for a couple of hours. It has a comprehensive range of cooking equipment and the furniture and beds are comfortable. We will definitely be back!

The property

St David's 8 miles.

Situated a short walk away from the dramatic Pembrokeshire coastline, within the quaint Welsh village of Trefin is this traditional cottage, Pant y FFynnon.

This real home from home is ideal for families seeking to explore the beauty of this part of Wales’ rugged coast, filled with superb walks, including along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, picturesque scenery and glorious beaches.

After an action-packed day on the beach, step into the property and enter the kitchen, where you will find all the essentials, catering to your culinary needs, including an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freeze, accompanied by a dishwasher to serve as a helping hand when doing the dishes.

The property also boasts a washing machine and tumble dryer, so that you can wash and dry your clothes after a family day at the beach.

Once dinner is cooked, head into the dining room, brimming with character to tuck into a home-cooked meal whilst gathered around the dining table and admiring the feature stove.

Gather your snacks from the kitchen and settle down for the evening within the sitting room, where a plush seating arrangement rests around a woodburning stove, gently filling the room with warmth during those winter evenings.

Head upstairs where you can relax and unwind in one of the two bedrooms, consisting of a family bedroom with a double bed and a bunk bed, and a king-size bedroom, both designed to offer a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of any party make up.

For balmy afternoons, there are table and chairs situated within the rear terrace area, offering an alternative dining arrangement for you and your loved ones to enjoy the sunshine.

The cottage is situated in Trefin, a small quiet village within the Pembrokeshire National Park approximately halfway between St Davids and Fishguard, it is a short walk away from the coast path, as well as being near an idyllic, rocky cove.

The village has a pub and a cafe serving food, the nearest shop is a short drive away and the picturesque harbour villages of Abercastle and Porthgain (with pub and award-winning seafood restaurant) can be reached by a leisurely stroll along the coast path or a short drive.

There are numerous beautiful walks and beaches within a short distance of the house, some of which are walk-able.

North Pembrokeshire has also become a centre for outdoor activities such as sea kayaking, surfing, coasteering and climbing; ideal for those adventure-seekers of the group!

St David's, 8 miles away, is a must-see during your stay - it’s Britain's smallest city and has a dramatic cathedral and Bishop's Palace as well as some excellent restaurants and interesting shops; a fantastic day out.

Solva isn’t far and is a boating centre which has a beautiful harbour with the best crab fishing opportunities.

Alternatively, you can venture to Fishguard, which is 9.7 miles away and offers a range of coastal sights and eateries for you to experience!

Furthermore, the area is ideal for those with children, with Oakwood Theme Park and a Dinosaur Park, as well as the magnitude of beaches to enjoy.

Pant y FFynnon is a wonderful property for a coastal getaway.

About the location

ST DAVIDS

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.

Please be aware of the low beams on the staircase and between the kitchen and dining area.
