The Old Coach House is a ground floor apartment in a lovely barn conversion set within the grounds of the historic Tregwynt Mansion. Comfortably and thoughtfully furnished with many retained features including quarry floors and beams, the spacious open plan living space has a fitted kitchen, cosy leather sofas and woodburning stove - ideal for those chillier evenings.
A small, enclosed, partially walled and gravel patio provides a lovely, sheltered spot to enjoy an alfresco meal or wander the 3.5 acres of grounds and admire the rural views out to sea. A short 20 minutes walk down the wooded valley takes you to the picturesque beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach Bay only a 1/4 mile away and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. While the famous Tregwynt Woollen Mill is well worth a visit.
A lovely holiday retreat for couples whatever the time of year.
The Old Coach House also shares the same location as 22922 Old Tregwynt Farmhouse and 22923 Atlantic View Hayloft.
Set in the grounds of this rather stately house, Tregwynt Mansion, this was one of the principle Manor houses in the area and part of a large estate. There has been a dwelling here since medieval times, although the existing house dates back to the 1700s, and a book has been written about its interesting history. The 3 cottages have been converted from original stone outbuildings and maintain many characterful features. While each cottage has its own enclosed courtyard, the extensive well-maintained grounds give plenty of space for children to play and room for leisurely walks, there are some idyllic spots and strategically placed benches where you can sit and soak up the sea views and wonderful sunsets. The skies overhead are vast and the stars at night are especially beautiful. Garn Fawr, a rocky outcrop within sight and walking distance of the cottages at Tregwynt Mansion has recently been listed by Dark Sky Discovery as one of the best places in the UK to see stars. The owner has a policy of keeping outdoor light pollution to a minimum, so guests can enjoy the milky way outside their cottage door. The extensive lawns at Tregwynt mean that during astronomical events such as meteor showers, visitors can take a picnic rug and lie on the grass watching the show.
With ample parking for each cottage, water sport enthusiasts can bring their boats, there are also wash down facilities for bikes and walking gear, and for the energetic take advantage of the tennis courts and enjoy a friendly game.
All within the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park, the area abounds in footpaths and is popular with cyclists, a national cycle route runs past the cross roads at the end of the drive. A 10 minute walk down quiet lanes takes you to Tregwynt Woollen Mill with its café and shop selling their exclusive wool products. There are a choice of 2 beaches within walking distance, Abermawr, good for winter surfing, and Aberbach. Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to explore this stunning rugged coastline, the bird and wildlife is sure to delight with regular sightings of birds of prey overhead and seals on the beaches. Visit Abercastle with its sand and shingle beach, this popular inlet is still used by local fishermen, Trefin has a pub and café to try, while Porthgain with its sandy harbour has an excellent pub and restaurant to enjoy and an art gallery to explore.
Further afield, but well worth a visit is the lighthouse at Strumble Head, the rugged coastline is stunning and the area offers a serene and tranquil atmosphere; refresh at another popular village pub in Mathry. For more bustling and extensive facilities, visit the harbour town of Fishguard, or the tiny city of St David’s with its Cathedral and Bishops Palace.
