This Gwaun Valley manor house stands on a knoll with the exquisite church of St Brynach on the opposite side of the curving entrance drive. Plas Pontfaen exudes a lazy charm - however it does not enjoy all the ’ease of living’ features found in more modern properties.
Harking back to a past age, this delightful house in the Gwaun Valley has a charming rustic interior with interesting architectural features and furnishings together with full bookcases, family, school and army photographs - a reminder of country house living as it used to be. Ideal for children and dogs to enjoy it’s private fields, woodlands and streams, the Gwaun Valley’s beautiful hills and countryside and Pembrokeshire’s fine, safe, sandy beaches are within easy driving distance. The kind and helpful caretakers reside in an adjacent, but totally independent wing of the Manor House to the left of the photo. Set in extensive grounds of almost one acre in the long and winding Gwaun Valley with beautiful hanging woodlands - a special and magical place ideal for children, pet dogs and family reunions. Fine, safe and sandy beaches are within easy driving distance.
The bustling little town of Newport has a range of local amenities including interesting and individual shops, traditional small town butcher, baker and newsagents, mini-market, bank, post office, chemist, health centre and a filling station as well as a number of restaurants, pubs and cafés. Pwllgwaelod Beach is a horseshoe of silvery soft sand backed by cliffs with lots of rock pools to explore. Beach 5 miles. Pub and restaurant ¼ miles.

We Enjoyed Our Stay But There Are A Few Things Which Should Be Improved: - Supply Towels And Tea Towels As It Is Inconvenient To Have To Take Your Own, Particularly If Coming From Abroad. - The Attic Room Is Horrible Because Of The Fly Infestation. Every Morning The Beds Have Dead Flies By On Them. - More Plates And Dishes Are Needed.
