Cottage at Llanon, Llanrhian, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Large Games Room, Quiet Location, Footpath To Beach And Coast Path
Ffynnon Ddofn is situated in a quiet lane, mid-way between St.Davids and Fishguard, with superb views over 18 miles of coastline and within easy each of all that the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast has to offer.
The cottage has a lovely bright kitchen, and open plan living room, with vaulted beamed ceilings and picture window. There are 2 main bedrooms, one with king size bed and the other with twin beds. There is also a large games room with snooker, table tennis, darts and children's toys, and a pleasant, secure garden surrounded by fields.
With central heating and double glazing, the cottage is warm and comfortable to be in all year round and there are stunning views from the main living rooms and garden. There's always something to see - the ferry going across to Ireland (day trips available) - a buzzard hovering - the Strumble Head lighthouse flashing.
There are safe sandy beaches nearby which are never crowded, even in peak season, rock pools, interesting little coves and fishing harbours and wonderful walks. A footpath along the lane winds down to Aber Felin beach, with its ancient mill stones, and the Coastal Path, which follows some of its most spectacular scenery here. The cliffs are carpeted with flowers in spring and in early autumn there are seal pups on the beaches below.
The cottage is available to book Saturday to Saturday, although other arrangements can be agreed out of season.

About Bryony Rees White

Bryony Rees White purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Bryony Rees White chose Llanrhian
My husband is originally from Wales and we spent so many lovely family holidays in Pembrokeshire that we decided to buy our own cottage. We particularly like this area from St. Davids to Fishguard, with its beautiful beaches and spectacular coastline, as it is quiet and peaceful but not isolated. Everyone is friendly and there are some amazing places to visit, plus the coast path is easily accessible and provides fantastic walking.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is in a great position and we have views over miles of coastline from the main living rooms. It's in a quiet lane and there is a footpath down to the beach which takes about 15 minutes. We also have a large games room in the barn where we have some noisy table tennis tournaments! The garden is secure and surrounded by fields where we can watch the yellowhammers and skylarks. Great place to see the beautiful sunsets, too.

Clean, cozy and beautifully situated.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. Ideally situated for great walks in the West Pembrokeshire area.
The cottage was clean and comfy and had everything in it that we needed.
The games barn was an added bonus, we made use of the ping pong table and the pool table. There is an impressive collection of objects which we spent time pondering over (what's that...?).
The views are fantastic (weather permitting) both from the garden and inside, particularly the dining table! The surrounding area is very peaceful apart from the sound of birdsong. The locals are very friendly and the local pubs not only serve very good food at good value - they are able to cater well for food allergy sufferers!
There were a vast number of books and leaflets in the cottage with information on the surrounding area, handy for identifying wildlife/flowers and finding walking routes.
Two of our favourite walks were around St David's head and Marloes, both offering a great workout and a chance to see great views of the coastline and islands.
We did managed to leave one thing behind when we left... if anyone can make use of a large dentiflex dog chew, there is one on top of the cupboard with the glasses in in the kitchen (oops!).
We would highly recommended this cottage to anyone wanting to explore this area or just wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Really happy that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review.
Cosy cottage with wonderful views.
We had a great week despite some awful weather! There is a lovely walk from the cottage across the fields to a tiny rocky cove with caves and crashing waves. The games room came in very handy, as did the tumble dryer! The cottage was spotlessly clean and warm when we arrived, and we loved being able to sit and watch the ever changing sea and sky. I would definitely recommend this cottage to a friend.
From arrival to departure, perfect.
A delightful cottage, idyllic setting, can't wait to return. Loved every moment of our stay.
Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back!
What a beautiful cottage! Well maintained, clean, warm and cozy. The view from the front if the property is amazing!
It was our first time at this cottage and we will certainly consider it again.
The weather was not kind to us on the last few days but the wonderful Games Room certainly made up for it. Snooker table, table teninis table, dart board and lots of children's toys.
Whole heartedly recommend this cottage.

Lovely cottage with sea views in a great location for walking and beaches
This lovely cottage is in a truly fantastic location and the views from the dining room and kitchen windows across Trefin to Strumble Head are superb. The enclosed garden and games barn are real assets for dogs and children/teenagers. Despite being very peaceful, the cottage is a short drive from many wonderful beaches, villages and pubs. It only takes about 15 minutes to reach St David's. The cottage itself is well maintained and has everything you could possibly want. A joy!
Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again.
Such a hidden gem!
Such a wonderful cottage in the heart of Pembrokeshire! The views of the coast are stunning and to eat breakfast with these views every morning was such a treat! Its in a wonderful position to take in the lovely coastal walks and hikes with lots of trails to choose from. Equally to drive to St Davids is easy, making sight-seeing there, shopping etc very accessible too. Whilst I was there with my husband, just the two of us, we also thought it was lovely that they have a games room set up outside of the house! Makes for a nice distraction on the wet weather days. Also a BBQ for when the weather allows! Highly recommend!
I'm so pleased you love our cottage too - and many thanks for booking again this year!
Our closest beach is Aberfelin and you can walk to this in around 15 minutes along a footpath from the cottage. It's a similar distance to reach the coast path which is quite spectacular here, with rugged cliffs and wonderful views.
Traethllyfn, a beautiful large sandy beach, without facilities, is 3 miles, as is Abereiddy with its Blue Lagoon.
Whitesands, a large sandy beach with life guards, shop, cafe and surfing is 8 miles away - boat trips are also available here to view seals and wildlife.
Many other lovely beaches within easy reach.
The use of a car is recommended. The closest main railway station is Haverfordwest, 15 miles from the cottage. There is also a station at Fishguard, 6 miles away, where you can catch the car ferry or take a day trip to Ireland.
Ffynnon Ddofn is midway between two hamlets, Pen Parc and Llanrhian each a mile away.
The villages of Trefin and Croesgoch are a short distance away, and offer good pub food, a garage and mini-market, also Porthgain, a small picturesque fishing harbour with an excellent seafood restaurant and very popular pub.
Fishguard is an interesting small town and harbour, 6 miles north of the cottage, and the tiny city of St.Davids is 6 miles to the south.
Coasteering is becoming increasingly popular and the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition has taken place at the Blue Lagoon, Abereiddy Bay. Abereiddy is just a couple of miles from the cottage and you can often see the competitors practising in the Lagoon and from the surrounding cliffs.
St Davids is the centre for many outdoor activities. It has a good Visitor Centre and there are also regular services in the beautiful Cathedral. Beside the Cathedral are the ruins of the Bishops Palace - a fascinating place to explore. There are also restaurants and some very good art galleries and craft shops.
A few minutes from St. Davids is the St.Justinians Lifeboat station with views (and trips) across to Ramsey Island.
A twenty minute drive will take you to the Presceli Mountains and the beautiful Gwaun valley above Fishguard.
There are historic towns and castles to explore. Pony trekking. Good surfing nearby, coasteering, sailing, kayaking and windsurfing. Rugged cliffs - a bird watchers and geologists delight and sea trips to Island bird sanctuaries, where if you're lucky, you can see the Puffins.
Guide books for all these and many more activities in the cottage.
Pembrokeshire also has its own popular theme park - Oakwood - which is situated at Canaston Bridge about an hours drive away, past Haverfordwest.
Fresh crab, lobster and fish available at Porthgain, 2 miles.
The nearest medium sized town is Haverfordwest, 15 miles away, for a selection of supermarkets, shops and banks.
