The Experience

Trundle down a rough track to an old worker’s cottage surrounded by 40 acres of wildflower meadows cultivated by hand. Artists Neti and Hugo live opposite in their barn – if you fall in love with any of the artwork in the cottage you can visit their studio to see more.

It’s quiet here: writers can tap away and artists scribble at the large wooden dining table, or in the extension facing the gorgeous countryside. The open fire makes it cosy to hunker down on the sofa with a good book – there are plenty to choose from on the bookshelf.

Drive to Newport in 15 minutes for the beach (perfect for walks and swimming), shops, pubs and restaurants; try out the craft beer at Bluestone Brewers nearby. There are lots of great beaches – Poppit Sands, Cwybr Bay for pebble coves and seal and dolphin spotting; kayaking, surfing, riding and cycling can be arranged locally.

This is a magical place. Set in 14 gorgeous acres, the owners immense creativity, style and sensitivity to their environment is abundant. Enjoy it while you can.

Natalie and Steuart, London

A stunning location with views to the sea as you turn down the track and drive on down into a landscape that reminded us of Africa in its natural wildness and extensive views. The cottage is every bit as good as it looks in the photos - pretty, characterful, incredibly comfortable. Hugo and Neti have created their own world of creativity and you will love dipping into it and be as sorry as we were to leave!

Diana, Bristol

An idyllic cottage containing everything you need, plus much more. From the moment you turn off onto the track you are immersed in a magical world: 40 acres of flower meadows and woods which you can wander through via the paths cut through the long grass. The spectacular coastline is about two miles away by car. But just to remain close to the cottage is a treat in itself with its own garden area, balcony off the bedroom and 'sunroom' to watch the weather should it be bad, but we only experienced sun when we were there. The owners, Hugo and Neti, are charming hosts if anything is needed.

Judith, London

Ty Glas is our favourite place on earth. You can't really put into words how magical this place is - a weekend here feels like you're in your own little world. Coming back to reality feels like a wrench. Also impossible to describe how quiet it is - only the sound of birds and the wind, and so many stars at night! Hugo and Neti are perfect hosts, they are so warm and welcoming and inspiring. The bed was so comfy, the cottage was warm, the log fires cosy and the roll top bath was perfect. We loved watching the wild horses at sunset from the balcony. Thanks Hugo and Neti for a perfect break x

The neighbourhood

The nicest pub, the Trewern Arms is at Nevern - a ten-minute drive. Both Newport (15 minutes) and Cardigan (15 minutes) are lively towns with good pubs and cafes and a noticeably growing foodie culture. There’s great walking too – the coastal path around this part of Pembrokeshire is stunning, and you have the Preseli Hills in easy reach as well as Carningli mountains, the site of ancient forts and spectacular mountain views.

Local points of interest from Annette de Mestre & Hugo Colville

  • Hidden beaches, beautiful walks, pubs and pretty villages.... there is lots to discover in Pembrokeshire
  • The Pentre Ifan neolithic burial chamber in Nevern is a good day out, and there are great cafes in Nevern for lunch.
  • For the last 2 weeks of May and all of June the wild flower meadows are in full bloom with a profusion of wild orchids
  • The large barn is a gallery with Hugo's art downstairs and Neti's art upstairs - open to viewing all the year round
  • Visit St David’s for its cathedral and Whitesands Bay – great for surfing. Or check out the unique and educational Bug Farm.


Annette de Mestre & Hugo Colville

It was the peace and wilderness of the Pembrokeshire coast that drew Neti and Hugo to the area 20 years ago. The pair – who met through a theatre Neti was running in Herefordshire as Hugo initially trained as an actor – were searching for a place to settle, and looked first in France and Ireland before friends suggested this 40-acre smallholding outside the seaside town of Newport. They are both keen on keeping the land in its natural state to encourage insect and wildlife as much as possible and are delighted to share their world with guests.
