about the property

One of the finest traditional holiday cottages in Pembrokeshire, Wales, enjoying a fabulously secluded location with huge open views, WIFI and open fire, this cottage welcomes walkers and dogs alike!

'Top 2016 UK Romantic Weekend Break' - Stylist Magazine

'A welcome in heavenly hills! Warmed by a lovely wood burner, Llys y Frân is a cute, pocket-sized pink 'croglofft' cottage for two, set in a peaceful valley in Pembrokeshire. This area is high on lushness but low on light pollution - perfect to enjoy starry Welsh skies through the roof window over your head. By day explore the stunning Pembrokeshire coast and the clutch of surrounding castles. The nearby medieval town of Tenby has upmarket restaurants and boutiques, while Narbeth offers swish shops and delis to stock up.' Bella magazine choosing Llys y Frân as the best UK cottages to 'Sleep with the Stars'.

Llys y Frân is a traditional Pembrokeshire 'croglofft' cottage set snuggly into the hillside in a quiet and peaceful green valley. Drive down half a mile of track to find the cottage in a field that runs down to a stream. Small, cosy and ideal for romantic getaways. You have two acres of land to romp about in, and direct access to a good footpath network - making this a great cottage for dog owners.

The cottage had been empty since the 1940s and has been fully restored by Under the Thatch conserving all original features. The three-year rescue project provides a cottage full of character, mixing antique furnishings with modern conveniences. Central heating, a modern, efficient wood-burner and an open fire keep the cottage snug year-round.

The location in the heart of Pembrokeshire is ideal for exploring this, the greenest (and many would say prettiest) of Welsh counties. Short drives will take you to unspoilt beaches, ancient castles, and pretty market towns, or there is a footpath over to nearby Llys-y-Fran country park and lake (2 km). At the lake, you can hire bikes and take a trip around the water (6km) on safe tracks.

Truly enjoyable stay at this secluded cottage that had everything we needed and more. Will definitely be going back to this gem.

The perfect peaceful break that even the rain could not spoil. A perfect cottage with everything you need relax and recharge the batteries.

A fantastic stay at an idyllic setting. The perfect place to get away from it all & enjoy the tranquility of the cottage and surroundings. The weather was perfect which was great for walking and exploring the local countryside. The only downside was it was too nice to use the log burner, we'll have to return in the winter to try that one. Thoroughly recommend this stay for anyone who wants a break to get away from it all and relax.

A stunning, magical cottage amidst glorious landscape. An oasis of calm and peaceful solitude. Wonderful walking, starry skies, cwutched up in front of the wood burning fire and watching sunsets from the chair all highlights too! With UTT we have always had the most fantastic, breathtaking holidays and we look forward to many many more. Every single detail is thought about with care, love and attention. An unforgettable Easter haven break - thank you so much.

We arrived after driving through a blizzard and walked into a picture perfect haven. We were slightly apprehensive as we live in a lovely Cornish Cottage so had high hopes......we were not disappointed...what a delight! Everything was provided....even down to hot water bottles and extra blankets...not that they were needed...the blazing fire was laid ready to go and the heating worked perfectly. Comfortable bed, cosy bedding, fully equipped kitchen.....small but perfectly formed shower room......thoughtful decor added to our enjoyment of this little gem...perfect for dogs too ours loved the freedom...and the fire, it really was home from home...... We are already planning our next stay....... Helen, Rich Meg

A most peaceful location, with swallows flying overhead. Quaint little cottage with quirky details, but with all mod cons.

What a beautiful and cosy place. Couldn’t have asked for better, especially considering it was a last minute booking and we just needed a quiet hidey hole. We would CERTAINLY come again. Bring plenty of firewood, games and wine and you will have a lovely time.
