Welsh Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above..


Set in the heart of an idyllic hamlet, this lovely holiday property is brimming with character and history, with original features throughout.

Tregoyr (ref UKC320) and Yr Hen Efail (ref UKC319), both formed an 18th century former Blacksmiths shop situated in the heart of the idyllic hamlet of St Florence, which dates back to Norman times. These stunning characterful properties have been tastefully restored to their former glory and teeming with original and traditional features with solid wooden floors, original tiled floor and beautiful exposed beamed ceilings.

In Tregoyr, enjoy a cosy evening in front of the wood burner with a glass of wine and relax ready for the day ahead. The well-equipped kitchen includes an island with Rayburn, and the property has been thoughtfully furnished. Formal dining can be enjoyed in the spacious dining room which has French doors overlooking the garden.

Yr Hen Efail, meaning ‘Blacksmiths shop’, enjoys a focal solid wooden gallery staircase meandering to the master bedroom to the right and left to further bedrooms, and there is an original wooden cartwheel hung over the feature staircase. Enjoy breakfast in the large kitchen and then through the curved archway for formal dining and continuing through the French doors onto the garden area to enjoy the sunshine.

Travelling west along the coast, you will stumble across Broad Haven and Freshwater West which are both popular for watersports with surfing and canoeing available, or, take a stroll along the clifftops and down to the picture-postcard beach of Barafundle, managed by the National Trust. Travelling east, you will pass through Tenby, Saundersfoot, Amroth and Pendine and onto the township of Laugharn, home to the famous poet Dylan Thomas, where you can visit his house and ’writing shed’ where the ‘Under Milk Wood’ is understood to have been written.

These lovely holiday properties are the perfect destination to discover this area with 186 miles of rugged Pembrokeshire Coast footpath to ramble. Enjoy the local home-cooked food and Welsh ales in the local village pub where a warm welcome awaits. The historic market town of Narberth is nearby with a wide range of antique, craft and gift shops. Traveling north you will discover the magnificent Cenarth Falls where you can watch the salmon and sewin jumping up through the falls on the River Teifi; walks are aplenty here with lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery to be seen. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant in village.

    Lovely spacious cottage, well equipped and very comfortable and warm in a very pleasant village. There is a convenience shop just down the road and a pub just around the corner. Surrounding area is beautiful and the coast amazing. Would certainly like to visit again and would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family.
