Enjoy a warm welcome in this friendly Country House, one of Pembrokeshire’s oldest historic homes. Elegantly proportioned rooms, a large shaded garden, home-grown food and amazing views to the Preseli Hills add to the peace and tranquility. Only 2km from the breath-taking coastal path, secluded beaches and the ferry to Ireland.
Cefn-y-Dre is in the enviable position of having a unique ‘sense of place’. With a history going back 500 years, links to Lloyd George, views to the Preseli hills and Carn Ingli - setting for the ‘Angel Mountain’ six-book series by Brian John, a fifteen minute stroll to Fishguard Lower Town, setting for the filming of Moby Dick and Richard Burton\'s Under Milk Wood. The ferry terminal for Ireland is but a five minute drive, giving guests the opportunity of taking a day trip to experience another adventure.
The bedrooms are furnished to a superior standard and contain Hospitality Trays providing a selection of teas and coffees together with FRESH milk, while flat screen digital televisions, all with Freeview and radio channels, ensure you are kept in touch with the outside world. Hairdryers are also provided. Dining becomes an experience, with Cefn-y-Dre having been awarded certification under the Pembrokeshire Produce Mark scheme with only the best of local ingredients being used when preparing meals.
All eggs, vegetables and salads used are provided from the Cefn-y-Dre kitchen garden, thus ensuring that everything is Fresh, Top Quality and Local! Forget food miles - here things are measured in yards! Dinner can be provided if booked in advance, and being licensed, you can choose from a selection of beers, wines or champagnes at very reasonable prices. A newly decorated lounge, without television – but complete with a baby grand piano - and looking across the garden, is always available for you to enjoy the tranquility of Cefn-y-Dre while feeling the 500 years of history all around you. A vast selection of books are available for you to browse; principal subjects being Pembrokeshire, Wales and Gardening.
Large scale maps are provided on loan if you wish to explore off the beaten track. Cefn-y-Dre has been well summed up in its recommendation from the current edition of ‘The Rough Guide to Wales’ with two very simple words: \"Understated elegance.\"
