This accommodation is part of a smallholding which used to be a thriving flour mill. It is a gorgeous place for a holiday. It is 10 miles from Narberth and 12 miles from Cardigan tucked away in its own little world close to the Preselli mountains and a short walk from little village of Mynachlogddu.
You will find everything you need here to kick back and relax and explore magical Pembrokeshire. We are in a 16 acre smallholding and there are rivers, streams and waterfalls all around. The place is an oasis of escape. A lovely family of craftworkers live in the farmhouse with four older children and Dan the Shepherd who will show you everything you need to know during your stay. This whole place is steeped in history both ancient and recent, they say it has been in use since megalithic times as a sanctuary for healing, being the home of the famous bluestones which were transported (somehow!!) to Stonehenge. The mill has not been in use for 50 years but the old cast iron wheel still stands and the mill race flows behind the cottage. You will always be able to hear the faint murmur of flowing water as well as plenty of birdsong, the odd sheep bleating and no traffic except for a tractor making hay in the fields during the summer.
You will be able to light a fire outside and sit under the starscapes, hang out on the river bank and get natural, wander amongst the trees and hills and let the rest of the world disappear if you want to. We do have wireless connection but due to its sheltered location we only have the odd patches of mobile reception but half a mile down the lane there is full reception.
Guests are welcome to walk through 12 acres of naturally managed farmland providing they respect the rules of keeping dogs on a lead and understand that the river and surrounds are a designated Site of Scientific Interest.
Interaction with Guests
I usually greet my guests at some point during the stay to make sure they have everything they need. I am happy to chat with guests should they wish, even share a glass of wine (great friendships have been forged at Felindyrch) but respect that most people come to get away from it all and spend time on their own and sometimes they don't see me at all.
Other Things to Note
There is usually someone around to meet you if you arrive on a Friday afternoon before 6.
You will find your holiday starts at the top of a magical track which you are advised to proceed down slowly and carefully. Look out for the blue painted stone. Felindyrch.
I can provide towels at £3 a set. I only have a small washing machine and the launderette is a long way away. :) Please let me know if you would like some.
Be nice. Take care of yourselves. There are steep stone steps, uneven paths, an abundance of flowing water and nature. Please leave things as you find them and don't put food in the recycling!!
The place is exactly as described and looks just like the pictures! I think the best word to define it is ‘cozy’. There is everything you need, it's very clean and you really feel at home! Hearing the water run around the place is very relaxing so we had a great weekend there. The only downside – which to be fair is more our fault – was the central heating. We were a bit unlucky with the weather and, as the central heating is provided through a coal fire, we had some trouble to keep the fire going. But everything was provided (materials + instructions) so again, probably more our fault than anything else.
What a lovely escape to the rural West Wales countryside. The cottage is in a fantastically secluded location and looks exactly like the photographs advertised. Oshi was both friendly and helpful, making the collection of the keys, and the welcome tour to the studio a decent experience.
We had a really amazing time at this beautiful, quiet and magical spot. The cottage is perfect and has everything you would need for a relaxing getaway.
The two of us just loved this little place away from the city! It was perfect inside, the fire was amazing to have - especially at night, the kitchen was adorable and the upstairs bed was great. The little welcome hamper was a beautiful touch too, as well as the folder filled with information and suggestions of what to do in the area, even on a rainy day! There was even a little comment journal from other people staying, and quite a few of the entries suggest places to visit as well. The stream running outside was really calming to hear as well, and we would definitely recommend staying here!
This getaways was exactly what we needed! The last minute booking and extended time on the last day was very well communicated and we felt very welcome.
Small touches like putting the fire on before we arrived, the ciders, the candles made our stay that much more cosy. We loved the area and on the first night had some exploring the surrounding fields.
We would definitely recommend this to anyone, for a private getaway in the country. One walk to recommend was by Dina's Cross, a costal walk in the sunshine.
Thanks again for a fantastic venue and we can't wait to stay again!
Beautifully secluded and quiet, tucked away in a corner of Pembrokeshire. The cottage was well-furnished in a pleasing mix of traditional and contemporary furniture without being crowded, the mezzanine bed nestled in the roof space was light and cozy with a view out over the yard and fields beyond.
The log burner and kitchen doors out on to a private terrace space overlooking the old mill and waterfall really made this a special place.
Oshi was very helpful and made us feel welcome despite our early morning arrival!
Thank you for a lovely weekend, we will be coming back.
