About The Mill

The Mill is a charming barn conversion situated in Rhosfach on a former dairy farm, nestled in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains with spectacular views across rural countryside.

  • One of three cottages converted from stone farm outbuildings, Mill Cottage has been sympathetically converted into a 1 bedroom luxury holiday cottage with both traditional and contemporary features throughout
  • Sleeping 2 adults, the double bedroom is on the 1st-floor mezzanine level (reached via stairs from the sitting room), with an ensuite bathroom. Velux windows allow the light to flood in. A stable door gives access to a flight of external stairs to the ground level
  • On the ground floor, a stable door leads from the garden/patio to the open plan living area, with high ceilings and exposed A-frame beams. A wood-burning stove and traditional slate tiled floor with underfloor heating makes this a cosy space to relax in, with smart, comfortable and contemporary furniture and furnishings throughout
  • Well equipped galley kitchen and dining area, open plan
  • Spectacular countryside views from the garden/patio with Rattan furniture and barbeque, great for al-fresco dining
  • 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. Lake in the grounds.
  • Pet-friendly facilities, a private enclosed space for dogs and long country walks into the Preselis
  • The owners' good-natured rare breed Belted Galloway cows graze in the paddock adding to the rural experience - say hello to these friendly creatures!
  • Part of a tasteful conversion, The Mill adjoins onto a further two cottages; The Byre and The Milking Parlour. Together they can accommodate up to ten guests which ideal for a large party booking.

    Our stay at the Mill Cottage in the Preseli Hills was just what we needed to relax and rewind. The location is perfect and we were able to reach most attractions such as coastal walks and towns within 20 to 40 min by car. The self catering cottage itself is very well equipped and we didn't lack anything. It is worth noting that the reception in the cottage is not the best but we had wifi (and therefore wifi calling), so got by with that where we did need to make some calls. The cottage was exactly as depicted and described on the website which is always a bonus! The log burner and wooden hot tub really made the cottage for us and added that extra bit of indulgence and cosyness. The mattress and pillows was perfect for us - nice and firm and comfortable (something we always struggle to find). The Mill is the perfect cottage for a break and to get away from it all - whether you stay there all the time or whether you head out for trips and food, it offers you many options. It is also worth noting that Jen and Phil were some of the most lovely and helpful people to run holiday accommodation that I've met and they make sure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The amount of information they provide on the cottage and its amenities as well as nearby attractions are also so helpful and detailed. These are the special touches that make the Mill deserving of 5 stars!

    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 The Mill.

    Can not recommend this place enough, the host Jen was so helpful and welcoming, Mill cottage was lovely, clean and had a fully equipped kitchen. The barrel hot tub in the private garden was lush with some spectacular views. Log burner in the cottage was great for that lazy day watching films, it really is like home from home. Remote but only a small drive away to get to some splendid places. Nice little walks on your doorstep, communal area and fire if you were a group and booked many cottages. Covid rules and regulations were spot on. Can't wait to return.

    We stayed at The Mill for a week in September, absolutely superb in every way. Jen and Phil are fantastic hosts, will go out of their way to help make your stay perfect. The cottage is warm, clean and ideal for two people and their dog(s). The situation in the beautiful Preseli Hills lends itself for choices of walks in the hills, or any part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The cottage is quiet, has well equipped kitchen, great shower and lovely to retire to a very comfortable bed. We were made to feel very welcome, along with our two Basset Hounds. We will 100% be returning. Thank you very much Jen and Phil. Owner response: thank you very much for your kind words - REALLY appreciate it and we very much look forward to seeing you again. Warmest wishes Jen

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Tea at Penally Abbey
    Serving sumptuous afternoon tea, you can book online for up to 4 people. They do have limited availability in the Sunroom for people who have well-behaved dogs, but you will need to call in advance to ensure a booking here. There are vegetarian and gluten-free options too. Tea is served 7 days a week from 2 pm to 4 pm.

    Canoe the lower Teifi from Llechryd down the gorge on a peaceful section of river to Cardigan. This trip takes around 4ish hours and is a fabulous experience. Your Guide will also talk to you about the history and wildlife in the gorge.
