Maengwyn is a very welcoming detached farmhouse dating back to about 1820.
It's packed full of traditional features, quirky character, local art and crafts combined with all the modern comforts we know and love.
Set in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park just off the A487 between/Dinas Cross (1/2 mile) and Newport (2 miles) with their individual shops, pubs and eateries, this is a perfect holiday base.
The coastal path is just a 20 minute walk from the house through a wooded valley with a high waterfall to Aberfforest beach.
Part of one of the 3 organic hay and flower meadows to the rear of the garden has been planted with heritage apple trees. You can wander freely through the mown meadow paths of each field and enjoy lovely coastal views of Newport Bay.
Beehives, marsh orchids and shallow ponds mean that there is abundant wildlife in this semi-natural habitat.
The owners, who have lived here for 45 years, are happy to share their extensive knowledge of their land and the natural history of Pembrokeshirewith their guests.
Entrance is into the Boot/Laundry room which has plenty of space for coats and walking and beach paraphernalia.
There is a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
