Guest Book Comments

Lovely farmhouse with everything we needed, even made our little dog welcome.Loved the area and would definitely stay here again.

A trusted customer - 20th August 2018

The house was charming, everything we needed was there plus a lot more besides. The wine, cake and biscuits were a welcome treat. Comfortable accommodation and cool in the very hot weather which was a great bonus for us and our dog. The fully enclosed garden was a godsend for the dog too as he tends to 'roam'. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and also extremely helpful when I had a problem with the car, they were available when we needed them but otherwise we were left completely alone to enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful rural setting.

Property Description
Steeped in history, a beautifully renovated Victorian farmhouse, pet-friendly with enclosed garden, in an idyllic secluded location.
  • Surrounded by 11 acres of rolling farmland, teeming with wildlife - badgers, barn owls, sparrowhawks, buzzards, yet a short drive from many of Pembrokeshire's beautiful sandy beaches, Fynnonddewi is perfect for a holiday escape.
  • Set at the end of a long private drive the farmhouse has been beautifully restored retaining many of the original features, beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, original Victorian tiled and wooden floors, and an impressive inglenook fireplace which houses a wood burner, perfect for chillier evenings.
  •  Character combines with comfort throughout this charming farmhouse, taking you to a place back in time, yet enjoying modern comforts.
  • From the moment you step inside the farmhouse the charming antiquity and warm ambiance delight. 
  • The tastefully furnished, cosy sitting room exudes charm and character, perfect for relaxing in, particularly on chillier nights when the wood burner is roaring. 
  • The well-equipped open plan cottage style kitchen with farmhouse table is a joy. Characterful exposed stone wall, under the beams, high ceiling, with the minstrel's gallery, above, with delightful views to the apple trees in the rear garden. The perfect spot for enjoying unhurried holiday meals together.
  •  The downstairs modern bathroom was once the creamery of the farm, where cheese and butter were made.
  • The 3 well-appointed bedrooms adorned with tasteful furnishings including Melin Tregwynt throws and crisp Egyptian cotton linen, are perfect for a tranquil night's sleep after a day in the Pembrokeshire sea air.
  • Children (grown-ups too!) will love the snug loft ' den' which has a low, sloping ceiling, lots of soft scatter cushions, bean bags, games, books, TV, ideal for your games consoles or watching DVDs.
  • The enclosed garden is a delightful haven of tranquillity, with a large lawned area, mature fruit trees, a sunny spot ideal for children to play in or for relaxing on the sunbeds away from it all! 
  • Nearby Solva has an excellent village shop, post office & off licence (Bay View Store) selling papers, groceries, including freshly caught crab and angling supplies.
  • Short breaks are possible at Ffynnonddewi Farmhouse please phone for availability and prices.
  • For larger groups or extended families neighbouring Ty Dewi sleeps 9 and can accommodate 15 around the large kitchen table. Ideal for a long overdue get together on the spectacular Pembrokeshire coast.

About the Area
 Solva/North Pembrokeshire
  • Solva, a short drive away, is a pretty harbour village with an ambiance all its own - excellent restaurants serving local fish, several pubs and interesting shops - learn to sail from the harbour, walk around the Gribin Ridge to the secluded Gwadn Beach or try surfing (and kite flying) at the renowned Newgale Beach - 2 miles of sweeping, golden sands.

St Davids, Cathedral and the Bishop'sPalace

  •  Wander down the ancient Pebbles path to the magnificent Cathedral and admire the view. Magnificent St Davids Cathedral, both a historical monument, as well as a place of worship, was built in 1181 and has weathered the centuries since. Visit the refectory in the cloisters for coffee or a meal and take time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place.

  • Across the tiny river Alun is the ruined Bishop's Palace with its lovely decorated stonework, rose window, halls and stairways. Restored sufficiently to fire the imagination of young and old, let your children play while they absorb the atmosphere of this site of medieval power and influence.

  • Although St Davids has the status of a city it is, in reality, a small village. Useful as a source of groceries - there is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers and greengrocers, as well as an ice cream and chocolate shop and two banks. There are also galleries and shops - clothes, gifts and outdoor gear; come and browse or buy - it is a delightful place to while away your holiday!

  • Don't miss the outdoor farmers' market on Thursdays throughout the summer on the Cross Square - all sorts of local produce and tasty morsels.

  • There are plenty of places to eat out all serving tasty local produce. Choose from Cwtch, St Davids Kitchen and the local Indian Restaurant as well as 4 pubs. You will not be short of dining options, just a short drive from Ffynnonddewi.

Boat Trips – book in St Davids to visit the offshore islands

  • Boat trips to suit all tastes leave from St Justinians during the season (April to October) to circle Ramsey Island and to see the marine wildlife, birds and spectacular Pembrokeshire coastal scenery. It really is a must for your St.Davids stay.

  • Go dolphin and whale spotting too with longer trips out to Grassholm and the lighthouse!  Book your tickets in St Davids.

Whitesands and the Peninsula beaches

  • Whitesands Beach, just a short drive from Ffynnonddewi is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach has lifeguard cover in the summer and surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach - so it is popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts. Whitesands is a lovely place to walk - your dog can walk there too between October and the end of April - and when you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.

  • On the other side of the St. Davids, is Caerfai Bay.  The scenery is spectacular and the beach, reached down a steep path, is a wonderful rock-pooling, game-playing platform for sandy heaven. If you walk the coastal path round the Peninsula you will find a number of small coves and less accessible beaches - at many times of year you will have them to yourself!

Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • A 186 mile footpath, twisting and turning along the most breathtaking coastline in Britain. It covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to long stretches of sandy beaches and winding estuaries.
  • St Brides Bay Water Taxi Great for coastal walkers. Leave your car in Solva .You will be taken by water taxi to your chosen destination, then simply walk back along the coast path. Or walk the outward leg and make an appointment to be picked up & taken back by boat. Possible destinations, Little Haven, Porthclais, Porthmynawydd, St. Justinian, Nolton. Weather dependant - 01437 720972.
Priskilly Forest Golf Course
  • A challenging 9 hole course set in mature parkland with panoramic views. After your game do drive on to Letterston and have a meal at the award-winning licensed fish and chips restaurant 'Something's Cooking'.

Newgale beach

  • Almost 2 miles of golden sand backed by a huge pebble bank formed after a BIG storm in 1859.

  • Kitesurfing and surfing are popular on this beach and tuition is available.

  • Walk right down to the southern end to find a walk-through cave and numerous sheltered bays. Cross the river, at the back of the pebble bank opposite the café at the north end to gain access to several low tide bays.

  • At very low tide it’s possible to walk round to Cwm Mawr beach but keep an eye on the tide times as beware of being cut off by the tide.

  • Dog restrictions apply to the middle third of the beach between the 1 st May and 30 th September.

  • Beach facilities - Toilets, lifeguards are on duty between the beginning of June to the end of September.

Nolton Haven

  • Enhance your day on the beach with watersports equipment such as kayaks, surfboards, wetsuits, bodyboards, windsurfers, surf wear and more for sale or hire at Haven Sports.
  • At low tide take a walk from Broad Haven Beach across the sand to Settlands Bay and across to Little Haven, well worth a visit. Take care not to get stranded by the incoming tide. There's always the road to take you back.
Picton Castle
  •  The Castle is open to visitors with guided tours offering an insight into the history of this interesting half classic castle/half grand country house.
  • The garden has been developed over centuries and it is a real pleasure to visit with secret owl garden. When you have spent time exploring, drop into the café in the courtyard. With seating both inside and out, Maria’s provides excellent lunches and teatime fare as well as a range of interesting (often Spanish) Deli food.
