West Wales Holiday Cottage | Overview

A West Wales Holiday Cottage with a difference…


“Great stay, comfortable, beautiful views, love the attic room and most of all the Aga.  What a fantastic view – wonderful to wake up to.  You have created a beautiful, warm and very comfortable home. Thank you.”

Gaynor, David, Harry, Louise & Huw, Broughton


A special West Wales Holiday Cottage

Treffynnon is a traditional, stone-built, mountain farmhouse with stunning, panoramic views over Newport Bay, Dinas Island and Morfa Head.  The house sits above the picturesque town of Newport, on the north-western slopes of Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain) in the Preseli Hills.

Treffynnon is the home of Martina & Steve Mallett and  offers luxurious, high quality, self-catering facilities for up to eight people, in complete privacy and seclusion.  We believe it’s one of the best West Wales holiday cottages available – but we are unashamedly biased!

Since we moved here in June 1999 we have extended and renovated the entire property.  The furnishings, fittings and decor are to high residential standards with an AGA in the kitchen, wood-burning stove in the living room and under-floor heating throughout, bedrooms included.  Treffynnon is a warm and comfortable West Wales holiday cottage for year-round holidays and breaks.

The area around Treffynnon offers lots to see and do for all the family.  There is the large expanse of sand and dunes at Traeth Mawr, the smaller Parrog Beach on the estuary and the beautiful and secluded shingle beach at Aberhigian,  accessed via a short walk along the Coastal Path.

There is an 18 hole, links golf course, wonderful kayaking around the fabled coast, horse riding, with treks on to Carn Ingli or through the beautiful woods of the Gwaun Valley to the renowned pub – Bessie’s.

If you are after a West Wales holiday cottage as a base for your walking holiday, then there are miles of paths across the Preselis, starting from right outside the door, ranging from short rambles to full-on day treks.  And of course there is the rugged beauty of the  Pembrokeshire Coast Path, from which you stand a good chance of seeing seals, dolphin and a vast array of birds and wild flowers.

“The house is wonderful. Every home comfort has been thought of. The setting is spectacular – especially the sunsets.”

Sukky, Herby et al, Derby, Birmingham, Leeds


The accommodation at Treffynnon is on three floors.

The front door leads into the spacious sitting and dining room with wood-burning stove and sea views.

The kitchen (Y Gegin) has a tiled floor and boasts a superb four oven AGA stove, fitted light oak cupboards, dishwasher, larder fridge/freezer, microwave oven, breakfast table and chairs.

The utility room has an automatic washing machine, tumble dryer, a second fridge/freezer and a second sink and there is a downstairs cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and an attic room which can be used as an additional bedroom (mind your head) or reading room.  Also ideally suited to star gazing.

The family bathroom contains a bath with overhead shower, WC and wash hand basin.

The kitchen door opens on to a sheltered and secluded, south-facing patio and lawn, ideal for al fresco breakfasts and lunches.  A second patio on the seaward side of the house is an excellent spot to watch spectacular sunsets over the ocean.  Garden seating is provided in both areas and a kettle barbecue is also available.

There is an adjacent secure, paddock that is ideal for hill football, mountain cricket, frisbee and general rushing about.  It is a completely enclosed and safe area for young children to play in.

“This is our ninth Easter holiday in Pembrokeshire and we have not enjoyed a better property.  We adore the AGA.”

Michael, Joanna et al, Hyde
