About Orchard House

Spacious detached holiday home, in the heart of Mathry, perfect for exploring this coastal county.

  • Situated in the quiet hilltop village of Mathry, once an Iron Age defensive fort, Orchard House has an altogether more peaceful past.
  • Constructed in 1991, the house was built in the grounds of the Old Rectory orchard. Today, only the lovely stone wall enclosures, with arched doorways, provide a reminder of the forgotten garden.
  • This spacious holiday home is comfortably furnished with practicality in mind, perfect for families to relax and unwind after a day exploring the National Park, walking the coastal path or splashing about in the beautiful coves and beaches, only a short drive from your door.
  • From the large contemporary kitchen-diner, garden room and lounge, to the variety of bedroom sizes, you will find plenty of space and flexibility for all of your party. Enjoy family gatherings or games in the larger rooms, or break away to savour quiet moments. This is an excellent choice for a holiday base.
  • The new addition of a Garden Room at the rear of the property is perfect for boots and coats, pet care and garden-based activities, with 2 large garden windows, 2 roof windows and patio doors leading to the BBQ area.                           
  • 'There is plenty of parking for 3 cars in your private drive and the shallow steps up to the house are easy to walk. The enclosed garden surrounds the house, with mature trees and established borders. In a sheltered corner sits a huge rustic picnic table and bench, perfect for dining alfresco.
  • However, with a wonderful tea room and pub just on your doorstep, and the cafes and restaurants of St Davids, just a 15 minute drive, you may wish to choose to dine out every day of your holiday, enjoying the local produce and unique delicacies, Pembrokeshire has to offer.

Fantastic place in a lovely quiet village. House was well proportioned for the 6 of us visiting. Well equipped and a great location for exploring the local area.Would recommend!

Lovely big house with beautiful garden. A little overpriced but its COVID I guess. No towels was unusual but ok, but this should have been told to us at time of booking not a few weeks before. Said there were tea towels but there were none which was a little annoying. Said there was an outside tap and hose for cleaning wetsuits but no hose. Just little things that could be improved on but they did not spoil our holiday.

The house was a good size but there was mould in the main bedroom and bathroom. The en-suite had an awful drains smell everyday so door had to be shut with the window open all the time. There were cobwebs everywhere especially on the wall lights and bedroom ceilings

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your feedback we are sorry that you felt there were some issues with the property, your comments have been sent to the owner and we await their comments. We will be in touch when we have heard from them.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

From the owner:- “Dear Guests, we are very sorry to hear you had cause for complaint about cleaning when you stayed in September. Our caretaker works very hard to maintain high standards throughout the year and, as you will have seen, we always leave her contact information (and ours) in our Welcome package, so that guests can ring her immediately if things are not perfect when they arrive. As you point out, it is a big house and there are some high ceilings, so if cobwebs and mould were overlooked, we can only apologise and say sincerely that this is an anomaly. We are also very sorry to hear you had a problem with the en suite. Again we would have been more than happy to investigate had we been advised and perhaps alleviated the problem for you. Subsequent guests have not reported any smells, but we have now fitted an extra airlock into the plumbing system just in case it reoccurs. We hope the rest of your stay in Wales was enjoyable and that everything else in the house was to your satisfaction. We sincerely regret that we were unaware of the issues you had and could not resolve them at the time for you.”

Orchard House is a lovely cottage. It is well equipped, comfortable and warm. It has a safe and enclosed garden for our dog to enjoy. It is in a perfect location for us as we enjoy walking the coastal path between Strumble Head and St Davids. Our only slight problem was the bath was too small. We would rather bathe than shower but we found the bath just a bit too small. A tumble dryer would have been handy for wet days but the owner did explain to a previous guest why she didn't feel happy to provide one.

Guestbook Comments

If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at Orchard House.

A glorious week! The house is spacious and a great location for exploring North Pembrokeshire. We have enjoyed some lovely walks along the coast path, and the wildlife has been amazing: red kites, seal pups and porpoises all spotted around Strumble Head - what's not to like? We look forward to returning soon. Thank you for the milk and welsh cakes - much appreciated by all!

Despite changeable weather, we had a lovely time. A spacious house where we could all spread out. Local pub & cafe are very good. We explored parts of North Pembs we had not visited before.

Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay! This was our baby's first holiday with his parents and grandparents and we made so many lovely memories. The house has been a comfortable base to return to each day and had everything we needed. And what beautiful surroundings! We would love to come back. The Farmer's Arms Pub was friendly and great for a pint or two!

A super holiday at Orchard House, a comfortable & well equipped holiday home in quaint and sleepy Mathry. Recommend the Farmers Arms for Friday 'Fish Night' & delicious Sunday Lunch. Ham & Cheese Plowman's not to be missed! Weather has been hot & sunny. Many thanks Lorraine & John for the welcome gifts - very much appreciated.

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

Mathry Village

  • The quiet hilltop village of Mathry with its church and village green, has a traditional local pub - The Farmers Arms and lovely Siop Fach tea rooms and collectables. The local Church of the Holy Martyrs is a stop on the 'Saints and Stones Pilgrimage' Historic Trail for pilgrims.
  • This is a wonderful base for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. A footpath from the village crosses farmland to the beach and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with its fantastic scenery and stunning plant and wildlife.

Coastal Shuttle Buses

  • If you would like to leave your car behind, jump onto the local coastal bus service - and travel up or down the coast. You can leave and join the bus at will and services run the length of the coastal path.

Abermawr & Aberbach Beaches - Dogs are welcome all year round

  • Footpaths through the National Trust woodlands of Pen yr Allt and Broom Wood lead you to the sand and shingle beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach, dogs are welcome all year round - woodlands carpeted with bluebells, wood anemones, wild garlic and alive with birdsong in the spring and seals (or perhaps mermaids according to legend!) can be spotted on the shoreline in the Autumn.

Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill

  • Visit Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill to discover exclusive wool blankets, throws, cushions and clothing all woven in Wales - enjoy a snack or meal in the caf and perhaps buy a unique holiday souvenir.

Porthgain

  • This picturesque cove has a range of galleries and the famous 'Sloop Inn' and 'The Shed', an award winning Bistro, serving the best locally caught fish and chips to eat in or take-away.

Fishguard & Lower Town Harbour

  • A bustling market town with a fortnightly farmers market - the Irish ferry sails daily from the harbour at Goodwick. The town was the setting for the last invasion of Britain in 1797 which is commemorated in our very own Welsh 'Bayeaux Tapestry', sewn by local needlewomen and displayed in the Town Hall.
  • Dylan Thomas's 'Under Milk Wood', starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and 'Moby Dick' starring Gregory Peck, were both filmed in the picturesque Lower Town Harbour

St Davids

  • With its splendid Cathedral dating back to the 12th Century, Bishop's Palace, caf's and independent retailers, there is plenty to keep you occupied for days of browsing. Don't miss the country market on a Thursday between April and September.

Solva

  • This is a pretty village with parking on the harbour-side. With the chinking of boat halyards in the background. Try Fish and Chips at '35' (next to the harbour car park) and investigate the shops - clothes and gifts, antiques, pottery and curios. Walk along the Quay to the Caf at the Yacht Club and enjoy a freshly caught crab sandwich and watch the boating activity.
