Tregynon’s remote cluster of three exclusive stone Country Cottages and 14th Century Farmhouse Restaurant is set in an unique location perched on the edge of the spectacular Gwaun Valley in the foothills of the Preseli mountains. In the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and approached by its own half-mile gravelled drive off a minor country lane, Tregynon is a nature lovers paradise. Unless a hardened walker or cyclist, with the nearest public transport several miles distant a car is essential.
Each cottage has its own slightly inclined gravelled pathway (approx. 15 – 20 yards long) leading from separate dropping-off/pick-up points. Unlimited parking is in the nearby gravelled car-park (approx. 75 yards distance).
All cottages have two to three steps up to their front doors (800mm wide) with small entrance lobbies. Foxglove and Honeysuckle Cottages have fully equipped (but compact) kitchens with all other rooms on the ground floor. Every bedroom in these two cottages has its own separate “en suite” bathroom whereas Bluestone cottage has its “en suite” bathroom and bedrooms upstairs. On the ground floor, Bluestone Cottage has a very spacious kitchen, dining room and lounge (with double bed-settee) with spectacular views. There are two steps leading down from the ground floor to a separate shower room and toilet off the entrance lobby.
As might be expected with the constraints imposed by buildings dating back several hundred years, the widths of internal doorways in the various properties vary considerably. However, with the exception of two doorways (650mm) in Foxglove Cottage leading into the kitchen and the “en suite” bathroom of the twin bedroom all other downstairs internal doorways are a minimum of 720mm wide.
Experience has taught us that many people are severely allergic to animals. We therefore very much regret that pets are not allowed in any of the cottages or the main farmhouse. Similarly, an increasing number of people are being affected by tobacco smoke and we therefore prefer guests not to smoke in the cottages. The restaurant is non-smoking.
The 14th Century Farmhouse Restaurant of Tregynon has direct and level access from the gravelled drive (2 yards) to its front entrance door (800mm wide) into a small hallway. The restaurant, lounge and disabled toilet facilities are all on the ground floor with access to all of these facilities through doors and corridors with a minimum width of 800mm.
Steeped in history and set within a National Park, all renovations and landscaping have been done as sympathetically as possible to be in keeping with the natural environment. As a consequence our grounds, with grass paths and lawns following the contours of the surrounding undulating landscape, combine with two large naturalised ponds, a 200ft waterfall, an iron-age fort and ancient forest. In recognition for all that we have done in this respect, we are very proud to have won the coveted Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Award.
