Holiday Rental House
The perfect base for your holiday all year round. 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.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay - shame about the umbrella weather! Pretty much everyone talks about sleeping well - its not just the beds, we think its the peace and quiet down our little lane, that helps as well.
