Felin Fach, once a working water mill, has been converted and renovated to the charming cottage it is today. Set down an unmade lane it nestles in rolling countryside, giving a real, rural retreat; one forgets how close you are to the coast with Newgale and Solva just a few miles away. Surrounded by an acre of grounds with uninterrupted views over the fields, it is bordered by a stream, the river Solva which meanders on its way down through Middle Mill to Solva and out to sea. The south-west facing conservatory is an ideal place to relax, while the newly fitted, cottage style kitchen/diner is perfect for enjoying long, leisurely family meals, or alternatively dine alfresco on the paved terrace on balmy summer evenings, as the sun slowly sets. The cosy sitting room has a wood burning stove to keep any chills away. 3 steps lead to the bedrooms.
The area abounds in footpaths with a number of circular walks, the bird and wildlife will delight. Just 4 miles away from the tiny fishing village of Porthgain with its thriving galleries and popular pub, 'the Sloop', it is equidistant from the delightful harbour village of Solva, enjoy exploring its shops, galleries and pubs all nestling round the picturesque inlet; join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to really explore this rugged coastline. The woollen mill at Middle Mill is worth a visit, set in the green valley on the banks of the stream. The long beautiful, sandy beach at Newgale is only 3 miles away, popular with families and water sports enthusiasts, there is a hire centre and beach side pub and cafe to refresh. Alternatively, the tiny city of St Davids with its excellent facilities, Cathedral and Bishops Palace is only a little further away. As you drive down the lane, leave your cares behind and truly relax in this ideal holiday home.

We booked a short break here as an antidote to a very stressful year (Ian was in a serious accident). We got exactly what we asked for! 4 days of total tranquillity in a beautiful cottage that worked for Ian in his wheelchair and for the rest of us as a family - Hugo 2 and Clara 8 months. We basically did nothing but revel in spending precious , and rare time as a family. Hugo loved the garden and helping with passing logs to the wonderful log burner. It has been a truly wonderful few days and we are very sorry to be heading back to reality. Thank you x
Peaceful spot and a cosy cottage, Thank you
Booked a short break to celebrate Steve's Birthday. Cottage so lovely, peaceful and tranquil. Everything on hand and spotlessly clean. Weather was not too bad, albeit the fog! Alf my dog loved the freedom of the garden and even had a dip in the stream. Thank you for such a lovely holiday.
A perfect hideaway - well equipped, warm, cosy cottage with the perfect outdoor space for teenagers and the dog. The conservatory was a real bonus and the adults spent many hours relaxing in there. Many happy hours spent on the lawn, Thank you
"We've had a very relaxing week, staying in your lovely holiday home. I was absolutely delighted with the excellent standard throughout, which enhanced my stay right from the beginning. I would be very happy to live in this lovely home. Would love to come back, many thanks.". Vicky and Brian "We were very pleased with the standard of equipment and decor. The property comfortably accommodated four adults. Many thanks for the thought and love which has gone into preparing the property."
What a wonderful week! Felin Fach has been a great place to stay and we shall be sad to leave. We would recommend Hilton garden centre just outside Roch as well as Picton Castle. Happy Easter!
To come from a town to such a quiet, peaceful place is just what we needed, lonely cottage, lovely countryside.
