We stayed at Felindyrch for two weeks as a family of 4 (kids age 8 and 10). The cottage was perfect for us and we enjoyed staying there very much. It offers all you need for your holidays, very comfy and very well equipped. Our kids loved playing in the garden, especially the trampoline.
We enjoyed having our tea in the garden in the mornings with the singing of the birds and the splashing of the stream behind the house. It's a very peaceful and quiet location and you can have a lovely view of the nearby Preseli hills.
Oshi is very friendly and hospitable and provides a lot of info about what to do in the area. Also great advise for beautiful beaches and places to eat.
There's so much more to see and to explore that two weeks weren't enough time so we have to come back.
We had an amazing holiday here. The studio is absolutely gorgeous, with lots of lovely details and touches that made it really special. The grounds are stunning and Oahi was kind and helpful. The perfect getaway.
Bowled over by this glorious gem off the beaten track and more so by the lovely Oshi such a lovely lovely lady ..... super rural cottage would love to visit in the summer with the birds and stream just to sit in the garden and simply be ! .... could highly recommend to anyone you will simply love it ! Thank you Oshi xxx
We had a wonderful week at the cottage. It's beautifully decorated and kitted out with everything you'd need. It's comfortable and clean. Oshi was helpful and accommodating.The location is ideal for exploring Pembrokeshire.
We stayed for a week at this beautiful cottage and it didn't disappoint! It is converted farm buildings and is set into the hillside with a river running alongside into a dis-used water mill. It is so relaxing at night lying in bed listening to the babbling brook just outside the window! The cottage itself is very cosy and beautifully decorated with hand crafted wooden features everywhere, including the stunning master bed. There is a shower room downstairs and bathroom (with hand held shower attachment) upstairs, and a tiny W.C. for children (which we didn't use being four adults!). On arrival Oshi appeared and was very friendly and welcoming, but not imposing and left us to sort ourselves out. The central heating is run by a Rayburn stove in the kitchen and being a chilly September day she had already lit it for us, which was lovely to enter to the gentle aroma of smokey wood burning!
The sleeping accommodation for four adults was just about OK, in that the master bedroom is gorgeous and very comfortable, but for the other couple they could choose from the spacious twin room upstairs, or as we called it 'the snug' downstairs, with two beds made up into a 'queen' sized bed. While it was comfortable it was a little cramped (cosy!) with one of the couple having to clamber over the other to get out of bed! This is possibly something to consider if you are two couples staying as one couple will definitely get a superior room to the other!! We were aware of this when booking of course, and it by no means spoiled our holiday, but thought worth a mention on here. The master bed was very comfortable, the twin room was light and spacious and was used as a dressing room for the occupiers of ‘the snug’. There is also a cot in the master bedroom and a full size window which opens out onto a bridge over the river. There are stained glass features throughout the upstairs which are just gorgeous!
The rest of the cottage was as I have said absolutely stunning, plenty of seating for four of us, a side board full of games, DVDs and very useful leaflets for activities in the local and wider area. A very informative welcome book too. The most impressive was the kitchen. So very well equipped for self-catering - lots of pots and pans and utensils, decent knives, bottle opener, garlic crusher, scales etc. The kitchen itself was very big and had plenty of room for the four of us milling around, with a lovely large kitchen table, massive chopping block and even a marble ‘slab’ for baking. The main feature of the kitchen is the Rayburn stove which essentially runs the central heating. (There is a separate gas cooker for cooking as well). I guess during summer months the Rayburn doesn't even need to be used as there is also an immersion heater for hot water, but we had great fun lighting it, getting it going, feeding it and trying to keep it going! Sometimes this was a little stressful as it seemed to go out a lot, and we had to buy quite a lot of fuel (probably spent about £30 on wood and coal) just keeping it going, and of course being September it wasn't really freezing, so it got very hot in the master bedroom at night above the kitchen, and there is a whirring pump in the bedroom that runs the radiators. BUT personally I loved it! Really felt like going back in time and being very responsible for keeping everyone warm, but not too warm! I would say if you are thinking of staying here in colder months you have to be prepared to get dirty, lug coal and wood (and have some extra funds for it), and are happy lighting fires - it is like a child which needs constant attention. I would also recommend looking at YouTube and associated forums for tips on how to keep it going and get the best from it.
Pembrokeshire itself is a very beautiful place to be. We did lots of coastal walks (we went where the good weather was!), there are lots of castles to visit (Carew Castle was lovely even in the rain), Stackpole and the Dale Peninsula were very memorable walks. The people are very friendly, local food and produce in abundance. Haverfordwest is probably the closest large town (about 30 mins drive), with Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi, with Crymych about 10 minutes drive from the cottage having a local butchers, pharmacy and very well stocked Spar. We didn’t eat out much, but the Sloop at Porthgain was very nice – we preferred to come back to the cottage, cook up a good meal, then sit out with our hot chocolates looking at the amazing stars, with very little light pollution, it really is quite spectacular! There is even a fire pit which in the summer months would probably have been used every night as being outside at the cottage is really so very peaceful.
Thank you Oshi for a wonderful holiday in an idyllic setting!
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful cottage with our three small children (2,3,5) this July. We were delighted to find a cottage exactly as picturesque and peaceful as advertised! As pretty as it is, it has more than adequate space with an excellent large master bedroom and a sizeable twin room upstairs and a decent third bedroom on the ground floor.
Inside, we also found everything you could reasonably need. A fantastically comfortable bed, a cot for the baby, stair gate already in place, high chair in the kitchen, a beautiful big bath. A really unique combination of charm and utility - ideal for us.
Our five year old daughter absolutely loved the 'secret entrance' to the wooden bridge over a stream, accessible from the large velux window in the main bedroom.
And a final word, Oshi's welcome and helpfulness stood out throughout our stay. In particular her recommendation to go to the beach at Mwnt was a huge success - just perfect.
Stayed for 3 days and explored the area from the Preseli Hills to the coast north of St David's. Oshi and Dan very helpful and we were well looked after. Magical part of the world full of ancient relics and spiritual meaning.well worth the journey and look forward to returning for longer-Family of 3 adults 3 kids under 6
