The
Experience

A deliciously wild, remote family house full of simplicity and soul – definitely not for ardent hedonists or those who crave the cutting edge. Getting here is huge fun: across moorland, down a long and winding farm track, opening and shutting gates, chatting to sheep, wondering if you are lost in this lovely National Park, then spotting the white chimney stacks of Glyn Garth. You enter into a stone-floored living room with rush matting, a log-burner, mishmash of cosy furniture, shelves of books and a record player (there’s an eclectic vinyl collection upstairs too.) The kitchen is refreshingly antiquated and cluttered but sweet and serviceable, there’s another living room next door to it with a huge open fire and antique wooden settles. Bedrooms (one downstairs) are plain and unpretentious: books, simple lamps, Welsh blankets, deep window sills, views; bathrooms are fresh. Families and friends, people who like walking, birdwatching, beaches, picnics, fires, books and music (no TV or WiFi, and phone signals can be hit and miss) will be in heaven. The local pub, owned by Bessy who serves you a pitcher of Bass, hasn’t changed since the 1920s.

Reviews

Glyn Garth is the most magical and spectacular place. It was absolutely incredible staying in this wonderful house. It is a totally unique place, full of character, and in the most beautiful part of the world. We had a brilliant weekend and couldn't recommend it more highly!

Ben, Frome

This is truly a special place! Full of magic. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, stunning coastal path walks. The cottage is cosy, simple, inviting. Calm, happy, beautiful holiday here with our baby and 4 year old.

Lucy, London

A very special place. Rarely will you find such peace and silence. We have been visiting for years and each time Glyn Garth works its magic; Glyn Garth is a little piece of heaven.

Caroline, Wiltshire

Lovely, homely, quaint cottage in the most beautiful location. Just what you need to get away from it all for a week. Perfect beaches and lovely walks nearby. Horseriding down the road. Great for children, cottage has everything you need. Will definitely go back sometime.

Emma, London

Glyn Garth Cottage is your quintessential chocolate box cottage tucked away in the middle of nowhere. You feel like your stepping back in time, with all it's rustic, romantic features and beautiful landscape. The journey to get to the cottage off the road is such fun, opening and closing gates, across the fields. The children loved it. This place is really rather special and for us the perfect get away for our family holiday. There is also so much to do close by a week just wasn't enough! I would highly recommend a holiday to Glyn Garth.

Local points of interest from Solveig Stone

  • Walk amongst heather and gorse on numinous Preselli hills where Stonehenge's stones came from. Strumble Head to walk through carpets of wild flowers along coastal paths that would make geologists salivate.
  • Return home to a Blakean vision as you descend the track, the Paps near St. David's Head and rays of setting sun glistening over the Altantic past a heard of wild Welsh ponies and ravens croaking, on down to the cosy fire blazing in the grate.
  • Step out in the night to gaze at the Milky Way and the rare sight of the sky with no light pollution and soak up the total silence except for a rushing stream.
  • Have a pick of unspoilt secret beaches and coves nearby or large Newport beach for wind surfing. Go further afield to the magical Traethllyffn for surfing or cricket. Our favourite beach.
  • Explore Nevern churchyard with ancient Celtic cross, nearby astonishing cromlech, Pentre Ifan. Visit St. David's Cathedral tucked out of sight of invaders. The most beautiful in Wales.
  • Children love the dolls' house museum in Newport, run by 2 nonagenarian sisters. Also the recreated Iron Age fort. The Bayeux like tapestry of the last invasion of Britain is a must. In the Town Hall, Fishguard where there is also a weekly f.armers' market
