Drive along twisting narrow lanes, marvel at red kites, arrive to discover a beautiful restoration of a 17th-century gentleman’s farmhouse with a Welsh slate roof – you’ll smile when you first see it. The main house is roomy, light and airy, just right for mixed groups of friends or family, and little Wren Cottage good for teenagers who prefer their independence or older members of the family who crave a bit of peace. Owner Susan usually greets, and leaves Prosecco, loads of logs and basics – local shops are three miles away and Narberth, a foodie’s delight, is close. A spacious kitchen is pristine, well thought-out and has all bells and whistles, there’s a utility room for hosing down dogs and tackling laundry, and a downstairs loo too. Wooden floors, lots of rugs, proper art (no bog-standard holiday home prints here) and a great big wood-burner will keep you happy and warm. Bedrooms are places you want to be with lovely views, bathrooms are opulent with huge shower heads like flying saucers. Amroth on the coast is 25 minutes away and the Preseli Hills are all yours – walk your socks off, return to much comfort.
