* A secret hide-away!!

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

My happy holidays at Blaenafon

  • 4 of 5
I have holidayed at Blaenafon several times with friends at different times of the year. Each season rewards you with different experiences. Spring, and the garden is full of primroses and violets, while summer rewards you with the dog rose and wading through the heather on the mountain.
Blaenafon is in a spectacular position on the mountain with views of the sea or mountain from every window, In front of the cottage a stream wends it way and the mountain track is waiting for you. The cottage is a typical Welsh long stone cottage, It has been carefully added onto and is comfortably laid out. It has a harmonious tranquil feeling about it. Set as it is within the National Park it enjoys a wonderful coastline. Newport an attractive stone town is a 5 minute walk down the mountain. I very much look forward to going once again.

Happy holiday

  • 5 of 5
My holiday at Blaenafon was a very happy one. Blaenafon is a really lovely cottage in a beautiful location. It has views to the sea or the mountain and with the stream winding it way down the hill just in front of the other side of the bridle path to the mountain passing the front door. You have both the mountain on your doorstep and the sea a half a mile away. The cottage is very old, with the additions being built on is a very sympathetic fashion – so you are not sure which is the old part and which the newer additions. All very interesting and full of character.
We did not unfortunately have good weather, but that did not stop our enjoyment and I hope to visit again and look forward to that time.

Blaenafon Newport Pembrokeshire

  • 1 of 5
I would not recommend this property to anyone who likes a clean, well maintained cottage with friendly customer service. We were so disappointed that we left after the first night of the seven nights booked. I immediately emailed the owner, via her agent who accepted our booking, but she refused to acknowledge or address our complaints and was aggressive in her response. In short, the shower curtain was mouldy, the shower room mildewy, the dishwasher was filthy, the fridge/freezer starting to rust, the electrics dubious, no wardrobe space at all to hang clothes... but to name a few of our concerns. I have had no response from my follow up letter to the owner so I have to assume she is not the least interested in customer satisfaction on any level. I only gave one star for the rating as I couldn't submit the review with a zero star rating.

Owner's Response: Blaenafon is a beautiful cottage in an exceptional position on the mountain overlooking the sea, with the mountain literally on your doorstep. I have let the cottage for more than 35 years - which must be some record. I am very happy to say that I can also count on one hand only the people who have complained.

I do have some rules regarding the cottage. I ask people not to arrive at the cottage before 3 PM and if there are any problems they are advised to immediately call my caretaker cleaner (who has been with me for some 7 years) or myself in order to correct any problems.
The above clients arrived early at 1.30 and also left the next day without a call to myself or to my cleaner. I and my caretaker were therefore entirely unable to correct the cleaning issues.

I do have a very helpful friendly staff as exemplified by the tip the above clients found on the table which was left by the outgoing tenants for my caretaker for extra services she had rendered.
All these things have been pointed out to the clients in two letters.

Since these clients left two further tenants have enjoyed holidays at Bleanafon. One of which were a honeymoon couple- they are the 12 honeymoon couple to celebrate there union at the cottage. the cottage has a beamed ceiling, an open fire, is 300 years old, and is in a very romantic beautiful position.

Notes:
The cottage offers a lovely romantic retreat for a couple or family looking for something very different.. It is on its own yet near enough to all amenities and holiday pursuits in the area. Since owning Blaenafon, I have transformed it from the stone built 2-room croft into a unique, charming and very different home, in sympathy with the surroundings, yet having all the modern amenities. The Cottage Comprises * Sitting room * Kitchen/dining room * 4 bedrooms * Shower room * Bathroom room Stunning views! Every window in the house offers the most wonderful views of the mountain or the sea. The mountain stream runs just opposite the door. The garden has sea views and is secluded and sheltered with a stone terrace and small lawns. Outside walled garden with terrace with table and chairs and barbeque. Outside parking for 2 cars below cottage Mr carningli is on the cottage front doorstep. Cottage is set beside a stream Suitability One well behaved dog is welcome.
