Fairy Hill House is an excellent venue with the benefit of being in a peaceful rural location whilst still having easy access to many beautiful beaches. The house and garden provided us with plenty of space for a large family group with ample playing areas for young children. The large hot tub was extremely popular and was well-used throughout our stay.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

What a lovely review, thank you for taking the time to share your comments, glad that you enjoyed your stay.

The property was one of the best we have ever stayed in. Being 4 couples we all like a lovely room and a private bathroom. Fairy Hill met those requirements. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the house was cold on our arrival, not a good welcome in January. This was sorted quite quickly but it would have been so much better if the heating had been checked before we arrived.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are sorry that the house was not warm enough on arrival but glad that this was rectified quickly. It is such a perfect property for a large party get together.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your prompt reply. My complaint about the house being cold was because the heating wasn’t working at all not that the house wasn’t warm enough.

Preseli Hills

  • The Preseli Mountains, or Preseli Hills, rise out of the landscape to 536m in the northern half of Pembrokeshire and are in complete contrast to the relative lowlands of the south.
  • The landscape is wild moorland, heath and grassland and is home to a wide range of plants and invertebrates some of them quite rare. The hills are the ideal location for some great walking away from the coastline.
  • For the best views in Pembrokeshire, pull on your sturdy shoes and take the short walk to Foel Eryr where the 360 degree panorama leads the eye across the sea to Ireland and Snowdonia, if it's a clear day
  • .For a longer stroll right across the spine of the Preseli Hills try The Golden Road, 8 miles, this ancient track follows a route that is said to date back to the Neolithic period, 5,000 years ago and the main route for travellers in prehistory to and from Ireland.
  • Along the way, apart from the breathtaking views, there are prehistoric remains, burial cairns dating back to the bronze age, Iron Age hill forts. There's an arrangement of stones in the shape of an eye known as Beddarthur and legend has it that it's the resting place of King Arthur. Who knows?

Bluestone Brewery

  • Bluestone Brewing is a family run brewery tucked away in rural North Pembrokeshire. Ales are brewed in the rough and rocky hills of the Bluestone mountains. Throughout the year several open air events are held with live music, food and entertainment.

Castell Henllys Iron Age Village

  • Set within 30 acres of beautiful woodland and river meadows in the heart of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, a short drive from Fountain Hill, as well as being home to expertly recreated Iron Age roundhouses built exactly where they would have stood more than 2,000 years ago, the natural surroundings are teeming with wildlife, such as otters, swallows and bats. Dogs on leads are welcome, not inside the cafe, but on the veranda and outside seating areas. Although the roundhouses are the main attraction, Castell Henllys also has a Visitor Centre, which includes a shop and cafe, with interactive exhibitions, children's play area and maze and riverside picnic site.

Fishguard And Day Boat Trips to Ireland

  • Situated in the midst of outstanding beauty that blends the allure of sea, towering cliffs, the Preseli Hills, historic churches, ancient standing stones, ideal for gentle and challenging walks, surrounded by the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. Galleries, gift and antique shops, with weekly market, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
  • Sailing, kayaking, coasteering, hiking on sunny days from Goodwick and on rainy days, swimming pool, cinema, music festivals and a visit to the Last Invasion Tapestry, which marks the 1797 invasion by Napoleon's French troops defeated by local militia at the Battle of Fishguard. It's said to rival the Bayeux Tapestry.
  • Stena Line offer day trips to Rosslare, Ireland from 5.50 - 12 per person on foot. Relax on board with free WiFi, free movies and stunning views from the deck. Buses provided from the port for a fun day in Wexford, soaking up some Irish culture and heritage.

Penbryn Beach (NT)

  • Spot the resident Bottlenose Dolphins, walk barefoot at low tide to Penbryn Beach, (NT) once very popular with smugglers, or take a cliff top walk along the Coastal Path

    Cenarth Riverside Village

    • The village of Cenarth is well worth a trip out from your West Wales holiday house in Tresaith. The beautiful river and waterfalls tumble through the centre passing under an ancient multi-arched (most photogenic) stone bridge. There is an attractive riverside walk, a few interesting shops, places to eat and the National Coracle Centre is located here.

    Bowen's Fish & Chips & Rhydlewis Trout Fishery
