About Anna Kavanagh

Anna moved to Pembrokeshire in the late '80's and has gradually created a number of beautiful places to stay. Originally from London it was always her dream to live somewhere wild and beautiful. She trained originally in Bristol to teach nursery/infants and special needs children and studied ceramics.

Part of the motivation behind moving to the area was to enable her children to go to the local Steiner School, Nant-y-Cwm which is just four miles away.

Ashera Pottery opened in '95. It is here that Anna works...inspired by the natural world and landscape around build...Each year she does more teaching...there seems to be a real need for people to get in touch with their creative side...and for children and whole families to spend time together...making things...she enjoys passing on her skills...working with small groups and when weather permits outside...

For Anna one of the main delights of living here is the wonderful view with ever changing colours. The big skies and the red kites and the song of skylarks...

'One of my favourite treats is to watch the sun setting beyond the moor and the new Moon rising.'

As well as enjoying the immediate and magical surroundings of Trallwyn Anna loves the coves and beaches which are abundant in this part of the world. In 2002 Anna bought an old village house in Polopos Village Southern Spain...which she thinks of as a perfect compliment to Wales...She now spends some of the cooler months in a warmer climate...

Pottery teaching is usually available in the months when Anna is in Wales which includes most of the high Summer season...

Anna Kavanagh purchased this cottage in 1989

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Far from the madding crowd' even some of the roads are quiet. A perfect hideway in which to unwind. Love the cave bed and view of the moor. Really enjoyed the pottery sessions + we are so pleased with our pots. Every time we use the mugs we will think of this place.

Trallwyn Bach is ideally suited to a single person or couple we are open to young babies or one small child staying if you either share the bed or bring a moses basket with you...though space is child has often stayed...either sleeping on an airbed, mattress or travel cot. We are fine with this, so long as you understand that it is our smallest place. If you prefer more space - Trallwyn Cottage is the next sized Cottage and is much more spacious with separate kitchen, living-room + also a single bedroom as well as a bathroom with a bath, sink + loo. It also has a woodstove.

Very cosy!

  • 2 of 5

The shower was far too small for someone 6'1"

Very cosy space and slippy underfoot to get there.

Nice lady owner and nice log burner but too small for us.

Quirky, cosy in a very special location. Incredible surroundings .

  • 4 of 5

A very cosy little property, just right for the two of us for a short stay. We'll definitely be back, but if staying for longer than 3 nights would probably book one of the larger properties on site. Would be fine for one person for longer unless you're very tall 😊. Anna is very welcoming without intruding. We feel refreshed and recharged. Thank you.

We were booked in to the cosy studio bach. It was absolutely beautiful, the bed is set into the wall making it feel like you are nestled in to a little cave. There is a roof window so you can gaze up to the stars as you drift off to sleep. The studio adjoins the moor where there is a stone circle snd standing stones. sheep and ponies wander freely, the views are spectacular, you are only a short distance from some beautiful walks and also beaches. A truly magical place, I only wish we could have stayed longer

Beautiful, Cosy Snug on the edge of the moors

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location, right on the edge of wild moors straight out of Wuthering Heights. Every single detail is perfect, the comfy bed in the alcove, the wood-burning stove and the small kitchen is kitted out with everything you need.

The area is fantastic, with lots to see and do just a short drive away. However, if like us you go and the weather isn't on your side (quite likely, let's face it), that isn't a problem. The bach has so much charm you can happily spend a cosy day indoors.

Anna, the owner, is an absolute delight. She made sure we had everything we needed, even providing us with tea when the electricity went down. I cannot recommend this place enough.

Small is beautiful-our best studio stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

Trallwyn Bach is a complete delight, it is true it is small but has everything we could possibly need. We feel like we have totally escaped the rest of the world when we come and stay in this gorgeous hideaway. It is also such a bargain price that we often come for 2 weeks holiday instead of just the one. We love the bed in it's cave like stone alcove, and we love to watch the sheep out on the moor and the sunsets. We feel like we never want to leave-such a brilliant place to unwind. From here we can walk through a gate onto the moor and up into the mountains + as we are great walkers it is a very ideal spot for us. If you are looking for something a little bit different this is it!

We also did some pottery with Anna for the first time-and now have some great pots to take home. We enjoyed learning to throw on the wheel-which was much harder than we thought-but with Anna 's help we now have some mugs and bowls to remind us of Trallwyn.

We Have become regular visitors to Trallwyn Cottages as it is just a perfect place for a holiday!

Trallwyn Cottages + Yurt are situated in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains, in the heart of the bluestone country. The setting is idyllic with direct access to the moor and mountains with it's sheep and wild ponies. Gors Fawr 5000 year old stone circle is just 5 minutes walk from the cottage, and a 2 hour walk takes you up to the quarry on Carn Meini where the bluestones were taken to make the inner ring of stonehenge. Ideal for walkers and people looking to truly get away from it all.

The beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline hosts the most spectacular scenery and beaches as well as wildlife. The cottages are situated 1/2 a mile from the small village of Mynachlogddu...and up a 200 yard track from the lane...all making at a very safe place for children...

Other Activities: Pottery tuition is available on site with Anna in the Pottery Workshop + is suitable for adults + children.
