Large, period house in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with distant sea views
A quiet, semi-rural position only 700m to the 'City' centre and 10/15 Mins walk to coastal path/beach
Our title refers to 5* as we've been fortunate enough to receive 90 x 5 Star reviews, many from returning travellers. We communicate with our guests on a personalised basis and we look forward to hearing from you if you'd like to spend some time in this wonderful part of the country with our house as your base.
Ty Glasfryn has been carefully renovated and furnished to a high standard. It is a stone built, former doctor's surgery and farmhouse dating from the 1850's with over 3,000 sqft of character-filled space in which you can spread out and relax. There's even a former servant's staircase which guests tell us is great for children's hide & seek!
We can sleep up to 12. There are 5 comfortable, large bedrooms with high ceilings and other Victorian features with beds for 10. The quality furnishings include mostly Vi-spring mattresses with 2 x King size, 2 x Superking size (which can be split into singles if required) and full-size bunks. There are also 2 x adult size 'Z' beds, with comfy sprung mattresses, for use in any room if needed to increase the sleeping options to 12. A travel cot and high chair are available. Do browse through our photos to see the style of the rooms and we can supply basic floor plans if required.
There are 3 showers, one bath and 4 loos in the 2 family bathrooms, en-suite and ground floor cloakroom plus a further courtyard WC and hot & cold outdoor shower for sandy wet-suits or mucky dogs! You'll gather that well-behaved dogs are welcome here.
We look out over fields and are yet only about 700m from the centre of St Davids, or another short walk to the coastal path and nearest beach. There is a convenient footpath opposite which leads to a large and well-stocked supermarket past a large outdoor children's play area with swings etc (both within less than 5 mins stroll) and all the other central facilities St Davids facilities are nearby.
PLEASE NOTE : the local Google street view image of Ty Glasfryn is out of date. The Council have upgraded Glasfryn Road to incorporate a new pavement link towards the award winning Visitors Centre and then on to the middle of St Davids. This runs opposite our house and provides the opportunity to walk safely into the nearby central area without having to worry about parking in busier times.
Our location is ideal for you to access all this important and historic City has to offer, including it's wonderful Cathedral, the remnants of the Bishop's Palace and other monuments. The surrounding countryside and coastline within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is magnificent and has so much wildlife for you to discover.
The house sits in approx 1/3 acre with a number of mature trees and a south facing, mostly lawned garden. The perimeter is fenced and has been made as dog-proof as possible. The driveway is gated with parking for at least 5 cars and the south facing patio has a teak table and chairs for outdoor eating. There are steamer chairs and other outdoor furniture available for relaxing and we also have a covered area for table tennis and a large, purpose built BBQ. From the first floor landing, and two of the bedrooms, there are lovely panoramic views over St Davids towards Whitesands beach which is about 2 miles away. It's a great spot to watch the sun set over Cardigan Bay too.
For all your self-catering needs we have a 4 oven Aga in a large, very well-equipped kitchen with a separate electric oven and gas hob for non-Aga users. We have a dishwasher, large fridge, a microwave and a separate fridge/freezer in the utility room. There is a log burner in each of the two reception rooms and radiator central heating throughout. The new wooden windows are double glazed, adding to our significant investment in insulation throughout the house. We provide a large, 'smart' TV with freeview channels, a DVD player and a fibre Wi-Fi service is available for guests to use.
