Ynglŷn â Cornmill at Castle Pill Farm
This beautiful two bedroom cottage is situated in our Long Barn, a stunning Grade 2 Listed stone barn built in 1850, which now offers a contemporary and tastefully furnished space whilst retaining its character as one of the oldest barns on the farm.
The modern open-plan kitchen is well-equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, hob, oven, dishwasher and washer/drier. The living space has two comfortable sofas, a generous television and a large modern dining table for serving family meals.
The two bedrooms have comfortable beds (a King in the master bedroom and the option of either a King or two singles in the second bedroom; please advise preference upon booking) and so can accommodate either two couples or a couple and two singles/children. Benefiting from two bathrooms; the main bathroom has a powerful shower over a bath and downstairs has a convenient cloakroom.
Luscious laurel hedging screens the private garden at the rear of the property (equipped with garden furniture and a barbecue), whilst attractive landscaped communal areas offer secluded areas for enjoying the countryside and local wildlife. Parking is at the rear of the property (with sufficient parking for two cars).
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is just a few hundred yards from the property and leads to further trails that wind their way through ancient oak woodland and to the Castle Pill Inlet of the Cleddau Estuary. Woodpeckers, kingfishers and herons are all common sightings, and crabbing opportunities provide hours of fun for little ‘uns. The woods are also home to a community project which has constructed two roundhouses with a free access woodland campfire area adjacent a freshwater stream perfect for paddling and dam building!
From the water’s edge, keen walkers can follow the meandering coast at low tide, along the old railway line path all the way to Milford Marina and all that it offers. Or you can head along the Coast Path to the quaint village of Hazelbeach taking in views of the impressive energy infrastructure of Milford Haven. Here a riverside pub, The Ferry Inn, serves hearty pub food on its waterfront terrace. For those who like to enjoy a pint, without having to exert too much effort, our local pub is just a mile up the country lane.
We are also conveniently close to the old fishing town of Milford Haven, which will provide for your every need (with a Welsh Bakery, Post Office, Banks, the modern and vibrant live Torch Theatre, a Doctors Surgery and Supermarket) and has a fantastic Marina (with a number of quaint shops and charming cafes, a maritime museum, ten-pin bowling, fishing and sightseeing boat trips, a waterfront gallery and several popular waterfront bars and restaurants).
We are just ten minutes away from the unspoilt beach of Sandy Haven, 20 minutes from the popular beach of Broad Haven and the village of Dale (offering kayaking, surfing, sailing, windsurfing and coasteering) and just 30 minutes’ drive from both Tenby and St Davids.
Pembrokeshire really does have something for everyone; with 52 beautiful beaches, 186 miles of stunning coast path, several magnificent castles and numerous adventure and activity parks, we challenge you to find someone who gets bored here. Being centrally located within the County, at Castle Pill, means that you really are able to access the best that Pembrokeshire has to offer!
At Castle Pill Farm itself, we offer guests the opportunity to partake in a guided walk of the farm and it’s woodland area. Taking in the on site aquaponics project, the renewable energy infrastructure and, of course, a visit to the animals currently resident (sheep, pigs, chickens to name a few!) all with an experienced host. We have heaps of experience and would love to share it.
For those looking for adventure Oakwood Theme Park is a short drive away, as are Anna’s Zoo and Blue Lagoon Waterpark. For a spot of culture, we are just 15 minutes away from Henry VII’s Pembroke Castle. For food and drink enthusiasts Caws Cenarth cheese factory and tasting room is not to be missed, and neither is the tour of the Cwm Deri Vineyard. We also have a number of fantastic restaurants within a short drive; just ask your hosts for recommendations.

Located at the end of a long secluded country lane, our property is accessed via the A4706 between Milford Haven and Haverfordwest. Sat Nav directions to SA73 1HE will take you just past the Castle Pill Crescent, adjacent to a large green meadow. With the Crescent on your left, and the green meadow on your right, continue down the lane for approximately one mile. Just past the farmyard and the pink farmhouse on your right, you will see the turning into a gravel courtyard.
Ahead of you, will be the impressive Long Barn. Cornmill Cottage is the fifth door you come to. Please pull up outside to unload your belongings. Once you have put the kettle on and made yourselves at home, please drive back out to the road, turn right and drive down the lane a further 100 metres. Take the second right, up a gravel driveway and park outside the property in the designated parking area, just outside the rear garden.
