Tregynon Cottages are situated in the wide open Gwaun Valley, nestled below the Preseli Hills in the heart of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, three miles from the village of Newport and the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. To one side stands proud Foel Eyre (Eagle Mountain) and to the other stands Carn Ingli (Mountain of Angles) and beyond that is the Atlantic Ocean. The Gwaun is a very special place: its tranquillity calls you to it and will lure you back time and again.
The cottages, which date back to the 16th century and are constructed of local stone, offer excellent accommodation and have been 4 Star Accredited by Visit Wales. They enjoy private parking and sit within lawned grounds surrounded by countryside and farmland. In addition they have been awarded Walker Friendly and Bike Friendly status because they also provide several purpose built facilities: a drying rooms with independent lockable storage; a map room for walking instruction, planning and local information; carriage to and from walking start and finish when feasible; and an indoor bike-friendly facility for housing, cleaning and repairing bikes (full bike facilities will be ready from end-March 15 but secure storage is available now). The owner offers a comprehensive set of walking skills modules which are reasonably priced and are well worth considering for those who do not have much walking experience or who would like to learn more.
The owners, who live on-site, have also thought carefully about what you should reasonalby expect to have available to you when returning from a day out – regardless of whether you have had an energetic day’s walking, whether you have been sightseeing, relaxing by the coast or just sitting on a hill unwinding from your usual routine.
