About The Milking Parlour

The Milking Parlour is a charming, dog-friendly barn conversion situated in Rhosfach on a former dairy farm, nestled in the foothills of the Preseli mountains with spectacular views across rural countryside. The cottage has a light and airy open-plan living space with traditional slate flooring and underfloor heating throughout. Ideal to return to after a walking adventure, there is a wood-burning stove with the first basket of logs and firelighters provided to warm you up on chilly winter nights.

Your dog-friendly cottage sleeps 2 adults in one double bedroom and 2 children in the additional bedroom with bunk beds. Each bedroom boasts a stable door which opens out onto your own patio area complete with outdoor furniture.

The garden is an ideal place to escape to, relax, and enjoy sightings of badgers, foxes, buzzards and red kites as well as panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and just a short walk to a beautiful stream. A brand new wood-fired hot tub is perfect for soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.

Part of a tasteful conversion, The Milking Parlour adjoins a further two cottages; The Mill (sleeps 2) and The Byre (sleeps 4). Together they can accommodate up to ten guests, ideal for a large party booking.

Guests also have access to a large communal garden, providing additional log seating, a campfire area and a running stream all of which add to the calm and tranquillity of the natural setting. Light a fire and stargaze or enjoy a stroll around the lake in the grounds. The owners' good-natured rare breed Belted Galloway cows graze in the paddock adding to the rural experience - say hello to these friendly creatures!

A beautiful, peaceful place to stay. The cottage is very cosy but plenty room for family of 4 with little dog. Only regret is that it was too mild to use the wood burning stove, but we did use fire pit. The little lake and boat in the3 grounds was a real bonus though our daughter kept on wanting to use it. Jennifer and Philip were very helpful and are on hand if anything is needed. There are lovely walks nearby. Newport isn't far, but glad we were away from the more popular tourist spots. These cottages are little gems!

We had the most wonderful weekend staying in The Milking Parlour. The cottage was perfect- equipped with everything we could need, and lots of lovely home comforts. The quality of the bedding and mattresses was great and they were extremely comfortable.Jennifer and Phil were fantastic hosts- nothing was too much trouble. We were provided with useful additions to our cottage such as a cot and highchair. They also gave great information about the local area with lots of recommendations for places to visit with children. That's said, the farm was so beautiful we didn't really want to leave!! The lake was very pretty and the children loved going out in the boat. The campfire was also a huge hit in the evenings, as were the fresh eggs for breakfast. We couldn't believe it but the Easter Bunny even found the farm and left some eggs around the lake!!We had such a wonderful time, we cannot recommend it enough. We look forward to booking again in the future!

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.

Located on a secluded non-working farm, with glorious rolling countryside, the property is centrally located for visiting all of Pembrokeshire's wonderful attractions, including 186 miles of magnificent coastline and various quaint villages and towns.

The Preseli Hills
Sitting on the edge of the Preseli Hills, the property offers some fabulous walking opportunities across this gloriously rugged and remote stretch of land which dominates the landscape of North Pembrokeshire. In the summer, the hills are alive with the purple hues of heather, while sheep and ponies roam the open landscape. The views from atop Foel Cwmcerwyn (the highest peak in West Wales), or the more popular Foel Eryr are simply spectacular and on the clearest days, you can see all the way to Ireland and North Wales.

The Preseli Hills are also famous for its Pembrokeshire Bluestone with many rocks littering the hillside - ancient remnants of glaciers that carved the undulating landscape. The enigmatic blue-tinged stone - famously used to create Stonehenge - can also be seen at numerous neolithic sites around the area, including Pentre Ifan and various others, underlying the historic significance of the area.

Tafarn Sinc
After a long (or short!) walk we would certainly recommend stopping by the community-owned Tafarn Sinc. This charming red-tin-clad pub in Rosebush, offers authentic, traditional Welsh food and drink, and is only a 7-minute drive away!

Newport
To the North, a short drive through the hills takes you to Newport with its wonderful sandy beach and thriving community. This artists' haunt brings you wholefood shopping, co-operative art, street cafes and some of the best eateries and restaurants Pembrokeshire has to offer.

Cardigan
15 minutes up the coast, visit the charming market town of Cardigan with another great selection of local cuisine and independent shops as well as a fabulous cinema and theatre. Nearby Poppit sands offer another glorious sandy beach for the ardent beachgoer.

Dinas Cross
Travelling south along the North Pembs coast, visit the village of Dinas with its three beaches - Cwm yr Eglwys, Pwllgwaloed and the lesser-known Aberbach. The Old Sailors Inn in Pwllgwaelod is a great spot for an outdoor meal in the summer months, while there are two great walks between the beaches - either along the dramatic cliff line of Dinas Head or a somewhat easier stroll inland directly between the two beaches.

Llys y Fran Reservoir and Country Park
A great place for walking, mountain biking and fishing, Llys y Fran Country Park has more than 300 acres of park and wooded valleys surrounding the 2-mile reservoir - the largest game fishery in South West Wales with mixed rainbow and wild brown trout. There are picnic sites, a 7.5-mile circular trail for walkers and cyclists around the lake with lots of wild and birdlife - badgers, foxes, otters, sparrowhawk, buzzard and woodpeckers as well as little gulls and black tern on the lake. Mountain bikes and fishing boats can be hired and you can also use your own sailing boat, canoes or sailboards by arrangement with the Visitor Centre where there is a gift shop and restaurant open every day from mid-March to the end of October.

Bluestone Brewery
Bluestone Brewing is a family-run brewery tucked away just a short walk from Bluestone Retreat. Well worth a visit, 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.

Gellifawr Country Hotel
Within a very short drive from Serendipity is Gellifawr Hotel, which is a nineteenth-century stone farmhouse, very welcoming, with landscaped gardens, cosy log fires in the winter, with bar, restaurant and free wifi, situated in the idyllic countryside.

Pembrokeshire Candle Centre, Gwaun Valley
In a hollow at the entrance to the Gwaun Valley is the Pembrokeshire Candle Centre - watch candles being hand-made by Danish artisan - lots of different kinds to buy. Established for about 50 years.

Castell Henllys
Enjoy a guided tour around this recreated Iron Age settlement with its roundhouses built exactly where they stood over 2,000 years ago. Set within 30 acres of beautiful woodland and river meadows in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park your dog is welcome too!

Tenby
The medieval walled town of Tenby with its picturesque harbour is a popular seaside resort. Interesting little shops, galleries, pubs, restaurants, cobbled streets and 5 glorious beaches (Blue Flag) to choose from. Tenby harbour has a thriving boating and fishing community - try your hand on a mackerel fishing trip or take a boat trip over to the holy island of Caldey.

Saundersfoot Village
Pretty, bustling Saundersfoot has 3 lovely beaches, harbour, shops, pubs, galleries, a wonderful old fashioned sweet shop, 'Chobbles', good seafood restaurants, and gifts shops.

Indulge yourself at the St Brides Hotel & Spa, a luxury hotel designed around the spectacular view over Saundersfoot Harbour and Carmarthen Bay.

Narberth
A bustling market town with wonderful shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. You can easily spend a day or two in Narberth itself - voted one of the Top 10 High streets in the UK with its boutique shops, galleries, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants. Narberth has many amazing eateries and fabulous boutique shops, including the renowned Golden Sheaf Gallery, and Wisebuys Food Emporium, a must for local Welsh delights. Also Fire and Ice gin store for those looking for a special treat.

Just outside the town centre is Narberth's Castle, first recorded as a Norman Castle in 1116 and with strong links to The Mabinogion. A rectangular castle with towers on each corner but, unfortunately, not much remains today.

St Davids, Cathedral & Boat Trips
Britain's smallest city with a magnificent Cathedral nestled at its heart. The village city is full of interesting shops, galleries, crafts and a choice of places to eat and drink. Do take the opportunity to book a memorable boat trip to the spectacular off lying bird islands.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
Pembrokeshire's Coastal Path stretches 186 miles from start to finish. Coastal bus services specially designed for walkers will pick up and drop off all along the route so you can choose to walk sections at a time. Secluded beaches, castle ruins and sleepy fishing villages are a few of the sights you will see. Watch out for puffins and seals who enjoy this coastal habitat.

Pembrokeshire Castles
There are magnificent castles within easy driving distance each well worth a visit - beautiful Carew & Tidal Mill, fascinating Manorbier & pretty sheltered beach, grand Picton with lovely gardens and Llawhaden, once the summer residence of the Bishops of St Davids.

Family days out in Pembrokeshire
There is a wonderful choice of days out for the whole family when staying at Marhaba Cottage. Oakwood, Folly Farm, Heatherton, Tenby Dinosaur Park, Manor Wildlife Park are all fun for the whole family to enjoy.

Pembrokeshire Wake Park
The Wake Park in Pembrokeshire is around a 20-minute drive and offers a range of options including healthy and delicious food freshly cooked, an inflatable obstacle course and of course wakeboarding! It's also very dog friendly and great for adults and kids.
