Set under the Preseli Hills, Y Bwthyn is a beautifully converted old stone and slate-roofed barn situated well off the road in a tranquil countryside setting. Numerous tiny windows frame glimpses of the garden in which it is set – a garden which is so lovely it has been featured in magazines and on television. Inside, there is a wood burning stove and a counter-weighted stair to access the sleeping loft, and the cottage is filled with books and paintings. There isn’t a television so you can enjoy a few days being blissfully disconnected from the stresses and strains of the rest of the world. National Geographic has named Pembrokeshire the second best coastline in the world and it is not hard to see why. All around you wildlife, historic monuments, standing stones and cliff-top walks abound. Quiet and comfortable, this cottage is nothing short of idyllic.

The cottage is suitable for older children or babies but not for toddlers or very young children due to the steep, open-tread stairs.

Electricity and unlimited logs for the woodburner are included all year round.

Bed linen & bath towels are NOT included in the rental - we kindly request that you bring your own sheets (suitable for a king-size bed), bath towels and beach towels. Please contact us directly if you envisage any difficulty with this. Other items of household linen - hand towels, shower mats, tea towels - are supplied.

Dogs are welcome (maximum 2) but there is an additional charge of £10 per dog per week or short break. Please let us know the number and breed of dogs.

A very special place

By Paulo B. on 08-Sep-2019

The cottage is lovely and has been tastefully designed. The kitchen is particularly well set up with lots of useful equipment and good space. The gardens are magical and the chance to have use of them from morning til night is a huge plus. In the afternoons there were a lot of visitors and the cottage is right in one of the busiest areas so if you sit out the front eating your lunch you might well feel like a museum exhibit! If that is not comfortable for you it’s a good time to get out and explore the neighbourhood!

A perfect retreat

By Elspeth K. on 01-Aug-2019

Delightful cottage quiet peaceful and surrounded by beautiful garden yet close to amenities and coast path and other walks. Like Cornwall without the crowds, a cliche but true, coastline is stunning. We were lucky with weather so didn’t have time to work through the many books on offer. A week without TV is bliss although we did cheat and watch men’s tennis final on laptop. Highlight was an early drive to get to Skomer to see puffins.

Place of Enchantment

By Natasha S. on 20-Jun-2019

This was a dream cottage and garden and was the highlight of our 2.5 weeks in the UK. The hosts, Christina and David, were warm and hospitable, the cottage was comfortable and charming, and the garden was a place of enchantment. If we return to the UK, this is where we would come. It was absolutely lovely and close to so many wonderful places to walk.

We did not have a car, but found the bus system to work well for our needs and it was on time.

If you need a place to get a way to for beauty, rejuvenation and quiet, then this is the ideal place to book.

Everything we wished for.

By Lucy M. on 04-Apr-2019

A wonderful last minute break, the cottage was warm & cosy, we loved the novelty of the suspended staircase on a pulley rope with weights, the garden is beautiful & the stars at night are incredible, an emotional sight after living in the city for many years.
The coastal paths nearby are stunning, with lots of coves, & a few are easily accessible, we were blown away by the sheer ruggedness & breathtaking beauty, whatever the weather. We feel our visit to this pretty cottage & Pembrokeshire has hit the reset button for us & not forgetting Christine & David, very kind & welcoming. Thank you, Lucy & Simon

A unique opportunity to stay in beautiful gardens.

By Caroline D. on 01-Nov-2018

This is a cosy and comfortable cottage where it would be a pleasure to stay in almost any setting, but it has the added attraction of being in the heart of Dyffryn Fernant Gardens. It was a privilege to feel that the gardens were our home for a few days, and we could wander and explore at our leisure. Preseli Hills and the Pembrokeshire coast on the doorstep too - really very little more anyone could wish for.

A delightful cottage set in the grounds of a wonderful garden, with complete peace and quiet.

By Graham S. on 22-Aug-2018

The cottage was clean, very comfortable and well equipped. The narrow pull down stairs took a little getting used to (especially on the ‘down’ ) but were like home at the end of the week. Sitting at breakfast and eating in the evening, looking out through the doorway across the valley to the hills beyond was a recurring pleasure.
The cottage is a perfect retreat from which to explore the wonderful North Pembrokeshire coastline and the Preseli Mountains with their ancient stone circles and burial chambers of the first Neolithic farmers in Britain and the outcrops of rocks which provided the Bluestones of Stonehenge.
Being able to explore the garden at all times of the day was a privilege. Dusk walks were a favourite, with Swallows giving way to Bats over the bog garden and pond in the evening.
If lucky, at night, the sky will vividly show the constellations and Milky Way.
The only disappointment was the clammy shower curtain rather than a glass shower cubicle.
Graham and Jenny

A very special place!

By Wolf-Peter P. on 05-Jul-2018

The cottage itself is a very special place.With its 'movable staircase' and the low altitude on the gallery with the double and the single bed.But everything is there.And much more...And very clean.But the undoubted highlight is the garden.Even if you are not the biggest garden lover so far you will love it.Especially when the visitors have left and you have the whole place for yourself in the morning and in the evening.Best place to enjoy a glass of wine.or two...And listen to the birds!
We already started to miss it when leaving after one week...And many thanks to our hosts Christina and David.Discreet but approachable if necessary!

Picture perfect

By Monika Z. on 08-May-2018

We (2 adults and 1 child) stayed in the cottage for 4 nights during a cold April. The cottage is very well set up and everything is designed to make your stay easy and memorable. The wood fire oven provides enough heat even during cold nights though it was also good to have a space heater. The loft for sleeping is very comfortable and we all loved the movable staircase to get up and down. The best is then stepping out in the morning into the wonderful garden and walking around with a cup of tea enjoying the views. The owner made us feel very welcome and provide us with lots of good information about the area, the garden and things to do. Would come back anytime!

Wonderful little retreat

By Catherine S. on 02-Jul-2017

We had a very relaxing time staying here. It has everything you need for a lovely break including no television! The gardens are beautiful and so peaceful to stroll round at any time of day. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and very happy to help.
