NEWS FLASH: We have just added a large detached Games/Function Room out on the Garden and a new Dream-7 Hot Tub in front of it on an outdoor patio and our own stone circle. Many groups wish to rent both properties together, and flexible arrangements for smaller groups are also available.The property stands alone on an acre of magical gardens surrounded by a spacious, pristine panorama of breathtaking views in all directions. Soak them up from the big bay windows or from the dining table at the end of the garden. Behind you, the enchanted Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain), and in front, windswept cliffs, beaches, and the wild Atlantic ocean. From Your doorstep, you can explore an array of beautiful walks through mystical woods and valleys, ancient sacred sites, highlands, and the endless Pembrokeshire coast path.The Rectory sleeps up to 14 in 6 bedrooms with pricing flexible for smaller groups. Enjoy this generous space with 2 living rooms and Georgian dining room which seats 25. In the kitchen area there is a 2nd table that seats 4. Most Bedrooms greet the morning sun and overlook the bay, mountain garden, and the pristine rolling landscape beyond. The adjoining Sunny Retreat Cottage sleeps 4 in 3 bedrooms. There is large open plan living space with a kitchen and dining area, wood stove, a huge lounge and south-facing balcony. Ecological design, maple flooring, carved slate, stone arch, inglenook and rugged stone and plaster walls give this home a very special atmosphere and architectural aesthetic. There is a high level of privacy between the 2 buildings and separate garden areas. Traveling can be expensive, risky, stressful, and exhausting. With 20 years in the business, a consistent 4 star Visit Wales rating, and thousands of happy guests we can assure you of our ongoing standards and professionalism. We take great care to ensure that your stay goes smoothly and easily. And if ever you have questions or need a hand, there is always a manager on call to assist you. We make it simple so you can just enjoy your time here. Come and retreat from our busy world and step into this special and peaceful realm.More

About the neighborhood
The little village of Newport/Trefdraeth has many convenient amenities, with the charm of its small community (roughly 4,000 people). There are excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes (the locally caught seafood is a must), as well as the usual shops such as a bakery, a butcher's, a news agent, post-office, eco-centre, and a convenience store. There are numerous art galleries, craft shops, books shops and an antique shop. There are many sports facilities including an excellent golf course, tennis courts, sports field, bicycle rentals, horse stables and tours, and boat club. Historic sites are all around us, and there are too many to mention, but we would highly recommend touring the local standing stones, churches, castles and the Iron-Age fort as a good start. When you arrive, we will provi...
