Our farm and cottages are located in the hamlet of Rhodiad-y-Brenin, just a mile away from St Davids. The farm adjoins the Dowrog Pools Nature Reserve, a site of special scientific interest managed by Welsh Wildlife. It is a great place to live and also share with our guests. The night skies are free from light pollution and tranquillity is wonderful. The bird life on the common is diverse – a bird watchers delight! We see hen harriers, owls and grey herons and always hope for interesting winter migrants – Bewick's swans have been seen here in winter. The garden is alive with finches and other small birds.

There is dedicated off street parking space for each cottage and undercover space is available for bikes, a small dingy and kayaks. Yr Hendy was the original farmhouse at Maen Dewi and has recently been updated, providing comfortable and spacious accommodation for 4 adult guests and a small child or infant. The house is at the far end of the farm yard and has uninterrupted views over the Dowrog Pools Nature Reserve. It has a kitchen with oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. The living room and dining area has an open beamed ceiling, television with DVD player and stereo surround sound. The master bedroom has a king size bed and small bed for a child. There is also an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has zip-link twin beds, converting to a king size bed if required and en-suite shower room. There is an enclosed private patio area outside the cottage with a barbecue and garden furniture as well as ample dedicated parking. There is also a shared lawn overlooking the Dowrog.More

We stayed at Yr Hendy last weekend and was not disappointed at all. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. Beautiful views and in a good location to St. David’s and various beaches. Our two dogs loved it

Pembrokeshire has this effect on people - you relax unwind and you could stay for ever (which is what happened to us)! So glad you enjoyed your stay.

How to get there
on the A487 main Fishguard Road, at the rugby club take the left turn signposted B4583 to Whitesands Beach or if you are coming into St Davids on the A487 from Fishguard take the right turn at the Rugby club as you enter St Davids signposted B4583 to Whitesands Beach. Stay on this road – ignoring the actual left turn to Whitesands Beach. Our hamlet is Rhodiad-y-Brenin. This is the first hamlet you encounter just over a mile from the St Davids turn off. As soon as you see the Rhodiad sign, which is just in front of a telegraph pole on the left, look out for our drive to the right. The entrance to the farm is opposite the second telegraph pole. The sign for Mean Dewi is on the left of the entrance. Drive down the farm drive past the main house. Yr Hendy is the cottage at the end of the drive...
