about the property

This is the Pembrokeshire Farm owned by Griff Rhys Jones that he lets for holidays when he isn’t home. First class Welsh holiday accommodation in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park near great walking and beaches.

Trehilyn Uchaf was famously restored by BBC's Griff Rhys Jones and the subject of the BBC TV series 'A Pembrokeshire Farm'. Uchaf is one of the group of cottages around Trehilyn farm that form UTT's largest rental in Wales - sleeping up to 22 (or 25 in summer when the Showman's Wagon is in use). Scroll down this page to see the other Trehilyn properties. 

We think that Trehilyn is among the best self-catering cottages in the UK, and VisitWales (the former Wales Tourist Board) agree. The Observer named Trehilyn in their Top 15 Green Places to Stay in the UK (No.7) and the Irish Times reviewer love it too, and Country Life name it as Best in Wales. 

Expect a genuinely stylish, quality interior with real attention to detail. Click to see the views from the farmhouse. An authentic restoration undertaken with sustainability in mind. Enjoy seventy acres of farmland with fine sea views - Trehilyn is about a mile inland from the most dramatic section of the Pembrokeshire coast. Trehilyn Uchaf is the main 1830s farmhouse, adjoining the smaller Trehilyn Isaf. Click here for an aerial photo or read an independent Guardian review here or one from greentraveller here.

What a lovely, warm and friendly house! Can't wait to go again!

Arrived in Summer and left in Autumn so saw Pembrokeshire in contrasting moods .....The house Is very atmospheric and comfortable. Although small the kitchen is fine to cook in with good appliances and equipment and the laundry room upstairs was much appreciated. We enjoyed the local beaches ( saw seals and gannets) and the excellent local produce at Fishguard market on Thursdays

Totally idyllic break in the tranquility of remote West Wales - what a way to come out of lockdown - we loved it! The coastal path is spectactular and on the doorstep and the farmhouse has been restored very sympathetically. I cant wait to revisit!

Sit in the hallway & warm your feet on the sensitively restored tiles with the front door open & ponder on the extensive restoration that took place to make this cottage an exceptional stay.

What a beautiful house in a perfect position for exploring all there is to see in South Wales. Very comfortable and well equipped, especially the kitchen if you like to do a lot of cooking. Lovely to be greeted with a row of cows staring at you in the morning too !

What a beautiful cottage - so lovingly restored - well worth watching the video of the restoration project to see the transformation and work needed. The nature trail was a wonderful surprise and quite magical to have on our doorstep. The walks on the farm and surrounds as well as nearby beaches were a joy. The weather was pretty grim - it was November - but we were wrapped up with the fire burning and our books. Thank you to Shirley and Anthony for their care.

We fell in love with this house. Everything about it is perfect - the undulating floortiles in the hall, work by ages, the underfloor heating which hugs your feet, the warm and cosy parlour, the deliciously plump feather pillows, ohhhhhh...everything. We want to live here please.

What a wonderful restoration, full of surprises. House is very comfortable, creaky with plenty of character. Location is fabulous for walking and scenery..

Excellent historical useable property in one of the most beautiful areas of Wales. Can't wait to book another break at this property.

The cottage is warm and welcoming and the location is superb. Probably the best UTT property we have stayed in.
