This large country cottage is in an idyllic setting just 2.3 miles from Newport in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Watamu at Glasfryn Cottages is a luxury family home with staggering views of Carningli (Mountain of Angels) and the surrounding countryside.
Set in 4 acres of grounds just 2.6 miles from the sea, with a standing stone and a bluebell meadow, Glasfryn Cottages are the perfect place to relax, unwind and reconnect with family and friends. With space, tranquillity and unspoilt countryside, this is a paradise for children, pets and wildlife enthusiasts.
The beautifully furnished detached house features an eclectic mix of modern and antique pieces, accented with traditional Welsh tapestry. Enjoy sleeping in the romantic cream French bedroom, full of light and very spacious. Or perhaps you’d prefer the Thai four-poster bed with fresh white linen and net drapes. The open plan attic bedroom has a king size bed, cosy with rich red Welsh blankets to ensure a good night’s sleep, and the pastel blue and pink twin bedroom is very comfortable and relaxing.
The spacious shaker-style kitchen and dining room has oak floors and a wood-burning stove. It’s a wonderful space in which to create scrumptious family meals and talk long into the night. In summer, open the double French doors and eat alfresco on the patio enjoying the stunning landscape, or pack a picnic for the children to take to the meadow.
This is an area steeped in history and rich in legends. Explore the magical Ty Canol Woods, the verdant Cwm Gwaun (Gwaun Valley), and the wild moorland slopes of the Preseli Hills. Discover ancient trails, Iron Age forts, Neolithic burial sites – and places to just stand and stare. Whether you spend time walking, cycling, horse riding or relaxing on the beach at Newport Sands, you will find Watamu a very special place to come home to.Accommodation
