Treffynnon is a traditional, stone-built, mountain farmhouse with stunning, panoramic views over Newport Bay, Dinas Island and Morfa Head. The house sits above the picturesque town of Newport, on the north-western slopes of Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain) in the Preseli Hills.
Treffynnon is the home of Martina & Steve Mallett and offers luxurious, high quality, self-catering facilities for up to eight people, in complete privacy and seclusion. We believe it’s one of the best West Wales holiday cottages available – but we are unashamedly biased!
Since we moved here in June 1999 we have extended and renovated the entire property. The furnishings, fittings and decor are to high residential standards with an AGA in the kitchen, wood-burning stove in the living room and under-floor heating throughout, bedrooms included. Treffynnon is a warm and comfortable West Wales holiday cottage for year-round holidays and breaks.
The area around Treffynnon offers lots to see and do for all the family. There is the large expanse of sand and dunes at Traeth Mawr, the smaller Parrog Beach on the estuary and the beautiful and secluded shingle beach at Aberhigian, accessed via a short walk along the Coastal Path.
There is an 18 hole, links golf course, wonderful kayaking around the fabled coast, horse riding, with treks on to Carn Ingli or through the beautiful woods of the Gwaun Valley to the renowned pub – Bessie’s.
If you are after a West Wales holiday cottage as a base for your walking holiday, then there are miles of paths across the Preselis, starting from right outside the door, ranging from short rambles to full-on day treks. And of course there is the rugged beauty of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, from which you stand a good chance of seeing seals, dolphin and a vast array of birds and wild flowers.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and an attic room which can be used as an additional bedroom (mind your head) or reading room. Also ideally suited to star gazing.
The family bathroom contains a bath with overhead shower, WC and wash hand basin.
The kitchen door opens on to a sheltered and secluded, south-facing patio and lawn, ideal for al fresco breakfasts and lunches. A second patio on the seaward side of the house is an excellent spot to watch spectacular sunsets over the ocean. Garden seating is provided in both areas and a kettle barbecue is also available.
There is an adjacent secure, paddock that is ideal for hill football, mountain cricket, frisbee and general rushing about. It is a completely enclosed and safe area for young children to play in.
All beds are made up with fresh linen for your arrival and there are plenty of towels but please bring your own beach towels. A cot and high-chair are also provided for youngsters.
Also for your arrival there is tea, coffee, milk and a bottle of wine and the wood-burning stove is laid and just needs a match.
There is under-floor heating throughout the house and this is included in the tariff, as are logs for the for the wood-burning stove.
Ample off-road parking is provided. Sorry, no pets and please do not smoke indoors.
The perfect West Wales holiday cottage!
