Where is the cottage?
The cottage is the last dwelling on the mountain track of Mount Carningli situated half a mile away from the pretty village of Newport (offering shops and amenities) and has unparalleled views of both the mountainside and the sweep of Newport, its coastline and Parrog (beach).
The history of Blaenafon Cottage: Blaenafon is a three hundred year old stone longhouse cottage named after the welsh meaning for 'head of the stream', with a beamed sitting room and open fire, carefully modernized.
The cottage first belonged to my grandparents in the 1920s, my children are the fourth generation and now my grandchildren make it the fifth generation of my family to live here.
I think this must be something of a record!
Originally it was only two rooms with an earth floor and the mountain road was only a track. They used it as a holiday retreat, which must make it one of the first holiday cottages. They travelled to Fishguard on the Great Western and from there by pony and trap.
Harmony & relaxation: It has always been a place of harmony and relaxation and country adventures and pursuits. As children my father and aunt would be off up the mountain for hours, sometimes taking a picnic or sausages and a frying pan, which tradition, I, in my time and my children in theirs, have continued: or else spending hours damming up the stream or making up other imaginary water games.
Testimonial: Dear Lorna,
My wife and I would like to let you know how we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at your cottage. It was all that you said it would be. It took us a few hours to get use to all the stairs as we live in a bungalow but the local walks and views were excellent.
We look forward to arranging another visit in the future. All the best to you, Roger Harding.
PS Thank you for the wonderful jar of honey from your own hives in Kensington. A very individual and nice welcome
