Y Garn and our self catering holiday cottages - come and visit our little haven of tranquillity

Welcome to Y Garn

The Grounds

The cottages are set within 8 acres of grassy gardens and mature woodland trees. Within the grounds we have laid out grassy trails and tree-lined paths leading to picnic spots and viewpoints.

A large open playing field within the property boundary provides a safe area ideal for children to run around or play football, cricket, bike riding, frisbees, flying kites etc.

Opposite the cottages, the orchard leads into the "nature reserve" where areas have been left aside in their natural state to provide a sanctuary for local wildlife and birds.

Adventure trails have been threaded through this area leading to dens and hideaways, providing endless fun and exploring opportunities for the kids.

Look out for our resident foxes, squirrels and rabbits as you roam the grounds or alternatively just look out your cottage window to the bird and squirrel feeding areas.




The Fields

We have a further 15 acres of fields for you to explore around the property gently rising up the hill sides of the valley and affording views to the north west of the Gwaun Valley, Fishguard and the sea.

To the north east, views open up to the grandeur of Carn Ingli and the Preseli Mountains a short drive away.

Whilst walking the fields, look out for local wildlife, mystical 6 legged sheep and if you're lucky, maybe the occasional dragon or two.



Llanychaer

"The bridge over the Gwaun at Llanychaer"

10-15 minutes walk from Y Garn is the village of Llanychaer where you can find a beautiful stone arch bridge crossing the Gwaun River.

Enjoy a genteel stroll from Y Garn, through Garn Woods and down into the Gwaun Valley. Cross over the quaint wooden footbridge and follow the river as it meanders gently down to the Bridge End Inn.

Y Garn River Walk

On the way back, follow the River Aer upstream from the Inn via Glandwr Farm.

Our Local - The Bridge End Inn

The aptly named Bridge End Inn is a family friendly pub that serves good food as well as a good mix of local ales and ciders from the local micro breweries.

Children can play safely in the beer garden or in the village green directly opposite the pub.

Sunday lunches are a popular highlight and should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.

Fishguard

Fishguard is our nearest town and is where the railway station at Goodwick connects to the Stena Line Ferry to Rosslare in Ireland.

Only a 5 minute drive away it has everything you would normally need for your holiday whether for supplies, art and crafts, church, sport, excellent eating or entertainment.

The annals of history record Hastings as the site of the last invasion of mainland Britain. True, this was the last successful invasion. However, little is reported about the French invasion of Fishguard in 1797 when an invasion force of some 1400 troops in French warships sailed into Fishguard Bay to be met by cannon fire from the local fort.

The peace treaty was signed between the British and French in the bar area of the Royal Oak Pub on Fishguard Square.

Visit the Last Invasion Tapestry, which has been compared to the Bayeux Tapestry, at Fishguard Town Hall.


North Pembrokeshire Coast

Our local beach at Pwll Gwaelod, less than 10 mins away

There are numerous cliff top walks, secluded coves, sandy beaches and bays within a 10 minute drive and a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs can also be found.

A little further up the coast, Newport is about 6 miles away from us with its galleries, superb restaurants and craft shops. At Newport things are on a grander scale and you can drive straight on to the beach if you wish

On the way there you will see a sign to Cwm Yr Eglwys where there is a charming sheltered beach which has a 'Famous Five' … feel about it!

In the other direction towards the small cathedral city of St Davids you will find Porthgain, about 25 minutes' drive away. It possess a lovely little 18th-century pub with good food by the side of an old port of great interest to the industrial archaeologists, and of course those who just love the beautiful North Pembrokeshire coastline.

Both Porthgain and Pwll Gwaelod are good places from which to explore the Coastal Path

The secluded bay at Cwm Yr Eglwys, less than 10 mins away

Stunning coastal scenery along the coast path looking towards Newport
