Remotely located on a very quiet farm, this well and beautifully equipped cottage is great for those who want space and peace. Having said that, with car it's no distance to the centre of St. David's with its magnificent ancient cathedral, to White Sands and many other sand beaches with pure clean sea (though admittedly pretty cold) close by, to bays and endless costal walks around the cliffs of the Pembrokeshire coast. Amazing also some relicts of an industrial past, still towering like ancient castles. A wonderful stay for all who long for fresh air, clean sea,stunning cliff sides, and a cottage surrounded by fields and heathland.
Y Felin offered very comfortable holiday accommodation. The barn conversion has clearly been carried out to a high specification and from the thick original walls to the exposed ceilings has character in abundance. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious whilst the 1st floor kitchen and sitting area was an ideal place to prepare breakfast and relax.
St Davids was reached in about 10 minutes and we found that the recommended restaurants were excellent, particularly St Davids Kitchen where we enjoyed a superb evening meal.
Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful during our stay.
Had a really lovely stay at Y Felin. The cottage had everything we needed, was really comfortable, very clean and with lovely touches such as the delicious cake. The garden was enclosed which was great for our little dog. The location is accessible to our favourite spots of St Davids, Whitesands, Porthgain, Abereiddy, Newgale, Solva but suitably peaceful, down a lane and with a few other cottages on the farm. Would be great to go on holiday with family or friends in several cottages. Hope to visit again. Thank you for such a great little break.
Well maintained property in beautiful location, Ideal for walking the stunning Pembrokeshire coast. You need a car if you want to eat out in the evenings but worth the drive to eat at The Shed, The Sloop or Cwtch, The bonus treats at Y Felin are the home made cake on arrival and the games room.
Had a peaceful week in the well equipped cottage. We loved the attention to detail (fresh flowers etc) and top class facilities (eg Bosch dishwasher) and Honey's Victoria Sponge cake was a real bonus. Dogs were safe in the enclosed garden and we all enjoyed the beach walks at Newgale and Whitesands. Cannot recommend the cottage and surrounding area highly enough!
Wow! What a great holiday! Y Felin was very spacious for our family of 4, whilst retaining a characterful cosy feel. There were an abundance of thoughtful touches throughout the accommodation, from a generous supply of dry logs for the wood-burner, to the fresh cake and cut flowers. The kitchen was very well equipped, the beds comfortable and the showers hot. The location of the cottage is in a wonderfully peaceful spot, whilst being only a few minutes drive to bustling St David's and the stunning beach at Whitesands. If you're seeking adventure then we'd highly recommend the nearby TYF activity centre (also on Trip Advisor). We spent a couple of days under their professional and supportive guidance whilst sea-kayaking and coasteering and everyone in our party, including our 8 year old, found it absolutely exhilarating. Our kids also appreciated the enormous trampoline in the play barn, and I imagine this area would be particularly appreciated by guests if the weather was unkind. If you're looking for immaculately clean, comfortable, characterful accommodation situated near what is probably some of the most stunning coastline in the world, then look no further! Many thanks Rob and Honey - you've really thought of everything!
We can only echo the other glowing reviews here - Y Felin, part of Tretio holiday cottages, is really lovely. Set in a group of farm buildings, in a tiny hamlet called Tretio, about 10 mins drive from St.Davids. So quiet your ears might hurt, only the birdsong breaks the silence.
The cottage, an old mill building, has stone walls and is beautifully refurbished with white walls, wood floors and soft bed linen. Milk was left in the fridge for us, as well as the lovely freshly baked cakes. There is a small playground and a large games room with table tennis & trampoline for the kids
Rob & Honey, the owners, are very sweet and helpful - you really cannot fault anything here. Book now!
