customer reviews for Trehilyn Uchaf

Fantastic location, lovely house - this is something like our tenth visit and I don't see us stopping anytime soon: thank you!

- Sophie lomax ,

We had an amazing week at Trehilyn Uchaf, the cottage was cosy and it was such a pleasure to be able to stay there. As a family of four, including two teenagers there was plenty to do, we enjoyed Sea Kayaking and trips to Tenby and St David’s, and the surrounding countryside and nature walk was beautiful to explore. It’s a lovely restoration giving you a unique opportunity to feel and breathe the past with all mod cons. Loved it!

- Vicky C,

Location was brilliant however the cottage whilst sufficient isn't luxury. Wi-fi is unlimited though the walls are thick meaning only wi-fi is on the ground floor.

- Poonam B,

Just returned from a long weekend at Trehilyn Uchaf. The farmhouse is authentically restored which adds charm but at the same time is wonderfully comfortable. We had blazing sun whilst we were there so could enjoy the garden but agreed it would be fabulous in winter curling up by the fire in the parlour. We’d love to come back again.

- Jonathan R,

What a tranquil spot, the house is lovely, restored beautifully with very comfortable beds and crisp fresh bedding. Spotlessly clean and the nature garden next to Trehilyn Uchaf is a wonderful added bonus. Loved the feel of the little peaceful community and the helpful on site shop - so thoughtful

- Caroline N,

The cottage was a lovely place to stay. It was warm, very comfortable with beautiful furniture and furnishings. The towels and bedding were good and the shower was excellent. The grounds were really interesting and the easy access to the coast path was great.. We didn’t use the shop but appreciated it.

- Elaine E,

We’ve just stayed at the pretty Trehilyn Uchaf farmhouse Pembrokeshire. A lovely cosy house with everything you need for a great holiday.

- Alison C,

What a lovely cottage. We had some problems with the upstairs radiators and Anthony came round straight away to sort it out, which is great. Thanks.

- Tanya J,

We had a wonderful week . Pembrokeshire was quiet and dry & we walked for many , many miles, loving the scenery and coastline . The cottage was beautiful & its 'history' fascinating ( because of the TV programme etc ) - thank you for the tremendous efforts you made in the restoration in order to make such a characterful property available to us mortals who lack your vision , willpower , patience and determination ........Chris

- Chris R,

We stayed for a few days in Trehilyn Uchaf for a few days this June and had a wonderful time. The farmhouse is spacious and well appointed. It has been restored to a very high historical standard and you feel almost transported to 19th century rural Wales. It is also set in a beautiful remote location on the Strumble Head peninsula. There is a working open fire in the parlour, which made for some cosy evenings. The weather was quite chilly at night even in June. Would highly recommend to walkers, nature enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to get away from everything. It’s so peaceful and quiet there. There are no shops, restaurants, etc. nearby, but Goodwick and Fishguard are only a few miles drive away. Would highly recommend.

- Grant P,

Thank you for such a lovely stay. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and enjoyed the beautiful house and gardens. The local area is just gorgeous and will definitely return for another stay!

- Sarah A,

We had a wonderful weekend at Trehilyn. Lots of walking on the coastal path, and up Garn Fawr every day. Many thanks to Shirley for everything. It was great to be back and we hope to do it again really soon!

- Ruth L,

Lovely cottage in a beautiful area. Spent 3 days here and could have stayed much longer. Amazing walks from the doorstep, we didn't use the car once and made use of the fabulous local shuttle bus.

- Carole jones ,

Stunningly peaceful setting. House is thoughtfully restored and is a total delight to stay in. The beds are supper comfy. Access to the coastal path is easy, St David's is a stone's throw away and Fishguard has some lovely shops. The garden chairs are starting to get a bit rickety and the Chesterfield although looking great needs a bit more stuffing now for comfort. That's just being picky. We love all the properties at Trehilyn and can forgive the little signs of age xx

- Pamela B,

Trehilyn Uchaf surpassed our expectations. Flexibility of accommodation is what attracted us and the restoration that went it to this Welsh Farmhouse. Bowled over at the care and attention that has gone into the other buildings on the estate and have fond memories of the nature walk and joining the nearby coastal footpath to Strumble Head. We'll be back.

- Catrin D,

What a beautiful location and beautifully restored cottage. We wanted somewhere quite and peaceful with walks from the doorstep and that is what we got! We watched the videos of the restoration of Trehilyn by Griff Rhys Jones and if made me appreciate where we were even more. Thank goodness there are people like Griff that want to restore and improve places like this. Highly recommend and will definitely want to come back.

- Sarah B,

Beautiful place as described. Very clean and all amenities needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Fabulous base to explore the wonderful Pembrokeshire coastline. Communication was efficient and thorough.

- D fannin ,

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

- Jeffrey M,

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

- Nicky C,

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!

- Sian P,

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.

- Rebecca C,

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 !

- Mark B,

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.

- Johanne orchard-webb ,

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.

- Susan H,

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

- Sion L,

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

- Kate W,

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

- Liz H,

So pleased to have stayed here - a lovely experience staying in a really interesting property. Cosy, welcoming and in a truly spectacular setting.

- Nia W,

The holiday was absolutely fantastic because of the weather but more importantly because of the superb accommodation where every detail seems to have been thought of to ensure the most comfortable stay. The grounds were amazing and there was plenty of space for children and dogs to run around and explore. We are already planning a return visit for next year but for two weeks next time. Thank you.

- Anastasia M,

What a lovely relaxing holiday at Trehilyn Uchaf, and the accommodation did not disappoint. Great area to explore, my favourite beach being Abermawr and watching the seals at Strumble Head. Thank you UTT the Dales Family

- Sharon D,

This was our second stay at Trehilyn and we loved it as much as the first. The house is just great but the setting is superb too. Our children love playing in the ford and exploring fields. So close to the coast too!

- Robert L,

Another wonderful stay at Griff Rhys Jones Pembrokeshire Farm -- we have stayed in different properties on the farm on different holidays and always had a great time. Beautiful setting, beautifully looked after.

- Simon M,

Escape, relax, unwind.. Walk, cycle, drink, eat. What more could you want. Trehilyn Uchaf is a magical property calm and tranquil we will be back. Porthgain, especially the sloop inn (half price January) and Dinas Head were particular highlights. Jon Sharon Malvern

- Jon W,

A lovely warm well equipped cottage which was made even better by the adjoining door arrangement to meet and eat with our friends in the next cottage. Had some lovely walks despite the rain and it was great to look out at the cows and sheep and farm life going on! We spent a very happy new year!

- Carolyn B,

We had been to Trehilyn once before and vowed to return, and left it too long! The location is simply superb, with a great mix of interesting little towns, epic pubs and wide wide open spaces. The house is lush, so warm, has everything you need (so nice for there to be great books in every room) and so comfortable and welcoming. We won't leave it as long next time.

- Sara mcaleese ,

We all adored being at Trehilyn Uchaf, it suited all very well, adults and dogs alike! Walking straight onto Strumble Head on a sunny day was one of many highlights, the biggest one though were the good times had indoors at Trehilyn itself. Thank you very much Eirlys, Charlie, Alwena, Simon, Marjie, Solo and Lila.

- Eirlys jones ,

We had a great holiday here and were very lucky with the weather. It's a lovely house and was a perfect location for dog walking. This was our second visit here and we would come again Emma

- Miss emma hancock ,

Wonderful relaxing house and farm. Can highly recommend staying here and cant wait to try one of the other properties on the farm. The farmhouse has been lovingly restored but has all mod-cons including gorgeous underfloor heating! Apple orchards, old train carriages, fenced fields, etc all on the farm all make for a kids' haven within a beautiful part of Wales. Try it.....

- Jackie C,

A fabulous break in a beautiful location and we were lucky enough to have the most glorious weather. Although it is tempting to just potter around the cottage and the farm there are some beautiful locations close by. St David's is well worth a visit, as is Whitesands Bay. And you should, without question, climb the hill opposite the entrance to the farm. The views are breath-taking. We are getting married at Trehilyn later this year and I doubt we could have picked a more perfect location.

- Rachel love ,

We so enjoyed our stay at Trehilyn. The cottage was a delight, the people friendly, the scenery breathtaking and the weather perfect.' ~ Jackie Harrison & friends from Brighouse


'What a beautiful week in a beautiful place! We helped the farmer move his sheep down the lane, saw wild porpoises off the cliffs, and the sunset from Garn Fawr..absolutely GREAT!' ~ Tony & Jackie from Brighouse


'The moment we crossed the threshold it felt like home, we loved everything about Trehilyn. The decoration is beautiful. It was so comfy and cosy it was initially difficult to drag ourselves outside, but well worth it when we did. It is so peaceful here and such a welcome break from the humdrum of daily life.' ~ Jay, Lucia & Darina
