Beautiful cottage in wonderful location. So quiet, and pitch dark at night - you can see so many stars! Easy Walkable access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path so you don’t need to drive anywhere if you...

in detail

Kitchen - well equipped with excellent quality appliances (Bosch dishwasher, microwave etc). Access to rear gardens - one of four doors to the property (two front, two rear), so you are never far from the wonderful outside space and fields. Good views.

Cegin Fawr - traditional ingle-nook room with dining area - large country table sits 8 easily. Dresser etc.

Lounge with contemporary woodburner, and direct access to front and rear gardens. First basket of logs supplied. digital LCD TV & DVD player. Good quality and comfortable sofa and tub chairs, stairs up to croglofft over.

Bathroom and toilet to ground floor (no shower). Bath that fills fast. Like most rooms this enjoys views over open fields.

Small 'Utility' area with washing machine and dryer.

Master bedroom (up steep stairs, gated at top), double bed (great mattress) etc with en-suite shower-room off (chrome heated towel rail etc). Large shower cubicle.

Croglofft bedroom (up steep stairs, gated at top, low headroom in parts) - best suited to kids, this has two good single beds, and overlooks the main lounge via balcony. Good quality mattresses.

Plenty of outside space for you/ the kids/ the dog to run about in! Garden furniture in rear garden, access over 70 acres (keep dog on lead around sheep). Nature walk (enclosed from livestock) along stream to far end of the farm and a ruined cottage.

Small 'honesty' shop for essentials and table tennis in barn.

Centrally-heated throughout (Carbon Neutral eco-heating system), with underfloor heating included in price.

Note that there are steep open-tread stairs up to both bedrooms (gated at top), so this cottage won't be suitable for the infirm.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome (small surcharges apply) - the Pembrokeshire coastal footpath is nearby and perfect for pooches!

This house is semi-detached with Trehilyn Uchaf, and if they are taken together an internal door between the kitchens can be opened to use them as one house.

customer reviews for Trehilyn Isaf

Beautiful cottage in wonderful location. So quiet, and pitch dark at night - you can see so many stars! Easy Walkable access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path so you don’t need to drive anywhere if you don’t want to. The cottage is very cosy, We’ll definitely come back. Thanks for a lovely relaxing holiday

We had a very enjoyable stay at Trehilyn Isaf. The cottage was spacious, warm and comfortable, with good beds and an excellent shower. We also made good use of the table tennis in the barn, and purchased a few items from the shop. We did have some difficulty keeping the woodburning stove going, but this was not a big problem for us as the weather was mild. This was an ideal holiday for these times as the cottage is so well-positioned for walks on and around the coastal path, with or without using the car.

We had a fabulous time in this snug cottage...very stylish and comfortable....we stayed in March and the wood burner kept us warm every night. The whole ambiance of the cottage was very traditional...beautiful furniture, and the Welsh slate floors have under floor heating so feel great under bare feet! This is part of a cluster of cottages and we will definitely be back to try one of the others...I would definitely recommend you watch the DVDs of the restorations..they are fascinating. The cottage is advertised as having WiFi...but does not have its own hub, so we could only access WiFi in one corner as the hub was next door...not so important in the summer, but more so in the winter when you want to snuggle up with Netflix...a separate hub would be beneficial. The honesty shop was great, if you run out of anything basic you can pop in and leave the money. We met some great people who were part of the team...we have a soft spot for Wynn who was great fun...I would definitely recommend a stay here!

What a beautifully restored but not "over done" cottage. We loved it, clean, cosy & well equipped. Great walks from the cottage & amazing star lit nights. Go there !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the experience of living in a cottage from a bygone age but with modern facilities. All thanks to Griff Rhys Jones, his foresight and passion, also the team of professionals who made it all possible. Beautiful accommodation, finished to a high Spec and the area is stunning with beautiful coastal walks, will be returning hopefully.

An absolutely wonderful traditional cottage, beautifully renovated, the kitchen is incredibly well equipped, the shower is the most powerful I've ever had! The beds are extremely comfortable. The large garden is completely enclosed so the dog can freely enjoy. The rural location is stunning and the perfect base for a North Pembrokeshire holiday - you can easily walk to join the coastal path from the cottage, and the Pembrokeshire coast is breathtaking. Would highly recommend Trehilyn for an unforgettable walking or family holiday.

This was the most beautiful cottage I have stayed in and the high spec of its decor has inspired us to go home and revamp our own house. Very peaceful and perfect for walks .

I was keen to stay in Trehilyn isaf having seen the restoration programme. As a traditional craftsperson I was keen to see the work carried out. I was so pleased to see how sensitevly the restoration has been carried out, retaining the character of the building but with modern additions which fitted in subtely. The log burner worked a treat one evening, thank you for the kindling and logs. The bedding and towels are a superb quality and lovely to see some of Melin Tregwynt 's blankets and cushions in the cottage. The garden and surrounding walks are superb and it is very interesting to see the other buildings which have been restored. I do quite a lot of work for The Landmark Trust, lime washing, traditional decorating etc and feel that this collection of farmbuildings may well have the edge!!!

We had a really great week at Trehilyn Isaf. The cottage had just the right mix of traditional quality with modern comforts. It was warm and clean and we appreciated the fresh flowers in the house, the safe garden for the dogs and the general 'unfussyness' of the decor. A great base for a great week.
