These are a group of 15 charming, characterful cottages, adjoining the wonder country hotel, Gellifawr. Located in the Preseli Hills, right in the heart of Pembrokeshire yet only 4 miles from the stunning coastline at Newport. Once a working farm, the 18th century barns have been sympathetically converted, all set round a central courtyard that has been beautifully landscaped with an enclosed sunken pond and communal barbecues which you are welcome to use.
Set in 6 acres of grounds for you to enjoy with 2 enclosed lakes, there are plenty of wonderful sports to sit and relax or enjoy a picnic, with stunning views over the hillside to the imposing Carn Ingli (Mountain of Angels), a simply stunning back drop, with buzzards, kites and swallows wheeling overhead. Gellifawr is a hidden gem of peace and tranquillity. The area is designated for its unspoilt beauty and the skies overhead are vast and particularly beautiful at night with no street lights to detract from the brilliant stars. The Area is crisscrossed by footpaths and cycle tails, both great ways to explore, or take to horse riding to truly get you off the beaten track.
The historic village of Rosebush is nearby and gives access to the highest viewing point in Pembrokeshire. The view is panoramic over the coast and on a clear day as far as the Gower. Enjoy a meal at the local inn, Tafarn Sinc famed for its unique and authentic old world, Welsh charm. Alternatively, the seaside village of Newport set on the mouth of the river Nevern is only 4 miles away with its excellent pubs, shops, restaurants and galleries to try. The estuary teams with bird and wildlife and time spent on the beautiful golden beach is a must. Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to really appreciate the beauty of this stunning coastline with its rugged cliffs, picturesque coves and sandy beaches.
Gellifawr is centrally positioned for exploring the whole of Pembrokeshire. The riverside market town of Haverfordwest is only a short drive as is the picturesque harbour village of Fishguard and the bustling town of Cardigan with its weekly farmers markets and shops. A boat trip out to Cardigan Bay, designated a special area of marine conservation, to spot dolphins, seals and a variety of birdlife will surely be a highlight of any tip. Enjoy the flexibility of a self-catering holiday with modern amenities in each cottage or dine alfresco on your paved patio, alternatively take advantage of the hotel facilities.
The hotel is beautifully and stylishly furnished with the cosy lounge areas where you can relax round a roaring fire on those chiller evenings, enjoy a drink in the inviting bar area or indulge in the A La Carte restaurant where you can treat yourself to delicious home cooked meals with a constantly changing menu made from locally sourced meat, cheeses and seasonal vegetables. Breakfast is also available for cottage guests to order for that extra luxury to set you up for the day out and about. The Cottages at Gellifawr are prefect to get away from it all, enjoy a relaxing break whatever the season and you will always be ensured a warm welsh welcome.
