Overview

About the property

Farmhouse sleeping 11, 6 bedrooms and barn sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms + cots

This extremely spacious property is in the countryside yet not remote - with a pub close by and shops within a 10/15 minute drive. This area of Pembrokeshire is renowned for its superb coastal paths for walkers. There are many beaches to choose from with surfing, wind carting and other activities such as horse-riding, fishing and golf. There are boat trips to the islands to see the puffins and other seabirds. There is no shortage of places to visit - St Davids with its famous cathedral, delightful fishing villages such as Solva and Littlehampton with a wide choice of pubs and restaurants and Narbeth with its bohemian shops as well as the county town of Haverfordwest with its wide range of shops and supermarkets.

The property is ideally suited to a large party and is popular all year around, especially Christmas, New Year and Easter as well as the summer months. In addition to the main house if required there is a 2 double bedroom barn conversion and coming soon a studio sleeping 2 plus sofabed. Details of the barn can be found under Upper Calffield Barn 6728277.

The farmhouse has a huge huge sitting room which oozes character with exposed beams, natural stone walls and two sitting areas each with an antique woodburning stove as their focal point. The kitchen has cream painted wooden units, a lovely slate floor and a large oak table seating ten with views of the garden and paddocks.The property is wifi enabled with fibre optic broadband and NOW TV. The games room is in the stable block adjacent to the house and contains a table tennis table, sofa and TV as well as a table and chairs so ideal for board games. The paddocks are home to three Shetland ponies, much loved by visiting children. The master bedroom suite has a dressing room and ensuite shower room. It is triple aspect with a full length picture widow commanding views of the paddocks and woodland. Other bedrooms also have views of the paddocks and fields. The cottage garden is well stocked with plants and flowers; it is south facing so gets plenty of sun and is equipped with garden furniture - table and chairs, sun loungers and a barbecue. We welcome well behaved dogs in the main farmhouse. Sorry, but no smoking indoors.

About Margaret Kinlay

I have lived in many places including France and Italy and London and my job has taken me to many countries and everywhere has something to offer but I have a deep love of Pembrokeshire. I have spent the last five years doing up the property and it is my home, rather than a holiday property, the place I plan to retire to. I love the location - this area of Pembrokeshire is populated all year, not just by tourists in the holidays. I love the beaches, the fishing villages and the county towns. I also like the fact that it is not remote - that there is a wide choice of shopping both in terms of supermarkets and "interesting shops" to browse...

Margaret Kinlay purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Margaret Kinlay chose St. Brides Bay. St Davids & The West Coast

My guests say "location, location, location..." - they say that the property is really well situated for visiting the many attractions Pembrokeshire has to offer and it is rural without being isolated - there are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs if you want them...

What makes this farmhouse unique

People say that the property represents a unique sense of space and freedom - enjoying countryside fresh air without having to sacrifice modern amenities and comfort...they also say the location is great, rural and near beaches but also near the market town of Haverfordwest so not isolated with plenty to do if the weather is bad.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Upper Calffield Farm is a great family holiday venue and we enjoyed a great week at the beginning of September. We had great weather and were out every day but if the weather hadn't been so good we would have had plenty to do with a great games room and a comfortable farmhouse to relax in. Great value, great holiday, we'd love to return." Elizabeth, Cardiff



"The holiday cottage is superb. I would recommend it to anyone, we had a smashing time." Andy

Fantastic, well equipped, lovely farmhouse cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed with a lovely hamper of things for our stay and quickly oriented ourselves to the lovely house - beds were comfortable, room at the kitchen table for all of us and lovely outside space, including horses/ponies to feed.

Separate utility space with sink, washing machine and dryer meant we could keep on top of laundry and sort everything for our two dogs.

Even the layout in the lounge meant the football fans could watch match of the day whilst the others played cards in the other half of the room!

We enjoyed the local area... So much to see and do! We look forward to returning to the area and would love to use the house again - wonderful!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased the house worked so well for you and that your holiday was a success, it means a great deal to me. I am also happy that you loved the area - and yes, there is so much to do and so many places to visit! As a guest pointed out recently, you could spend weeks going to a different beach every day if you wanted to! I am absolutely delighted that the property gets so many five star reviews but I also want to point out that the five stars are for the overall holiday experience rather than the house which I regard as being 4*. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

Large, well furnished, peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend spent with a group of 20 something friends just outside Haverfordwest. The house is great - huge, comfy beds and very well furnished. We loved the table tennis table and lovely kitchen in particular. Would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: I am delighted you enjoyed yourselves. I should probably point out that we didn't accommodate all 20 of you! We can sleep 10/11 in the house plus 4 in the two bedroom barn available. As of Easter we will have new additional accommodation for another 2 + 1....

Fantastic New Years Break!

  • 5 of 5

Myself along with 5 other adults and 7 children had a wonderful time at Upper Calf Field Farm over New Years 2016/2017. The house itself is very cosy and comfortable and really was a home away from home. The kitchen was well equipped with the utility room joining on the side with plenty of room to hang up coats and leave boots so no outside clothing needed to come into the house. The bedrooms were all comfortable with room to unpack suitcases if needed. The house was spotless with fresh linen and towels for everyone. Although the photos on the listing are very nice I don't think they do the house justice as it is even nice when you are there! There are ponies in the paddocks out the back which all of the kids loved, they were all friendly and we weren't worried about the kids feeding or petting them (under supervision!) The house is in a great location to get to all the local beaches as well as St David's. The pub opposite doesn't look like much from the outside but the owners are very welcoming and kid friendly and us wives got rid of our husbands over there as regularly as we could! All in all we had a wonderful time and would definitely go back. The owner, Margaret, was beyond helpful and friendly a really lovely lady which made booking and organising the trip seamless and stress free. Many thanks to Margaret.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for all of the comments - especially the level of detail as that is most helpful for future guests. You are right - I'm not very good at photography so I will make it my new year's resolution to do better! Thanks, Deborah and you were lovely guests!

Lovely, cosy cottage for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable Christmas in Upper Calffield farm. There were 10 of us...children, teenagers, adults and OAPs! Such a pretty and homely cottage, we arrived to a very welcoming and generous hamper which was very well received!

We had a drink in the nearby pub, where we found the locals to be very welcoming and friendly.

The cottage was really spacious, with room for all of us without feeling cramped. It had everything we needed, and more! All the rooms were beautifully furnished and very comfortable.

The table tennis was a big hit with all of us, and the children took a real shine to the ponies!

We explored Broad Haven and Newgale beaches - both very close, easy to find and beautiful.

All in all, a lovely Christmas spent in a gorgeous place. Would recommend to anyone, and I expect we'll be back!

Thank you to Margaret who was very helpful throughout the whole booking process.

Owner's Response: I am delighted you had such a good time and that the teenagers enjoyed the log cabin games room - the farmhouse is definitely very cosy in winter and it's great for a traditional family Christmas! You were great guests, thank you.
