Cosy and colourful B&B rooms on an organic dairy farm close to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path

In the quieter northern reaches of Pembrokeshire, a Georgian Farmhouse has been lovingly renovated into a boutique B&B with four cosy and colourful rooms. It’s less than half a mile from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a similar distance from ferries on the Fishguard-to-Rosslare route. Both of these make it a handy stop for weary travellers but it’s also much more than that. It’s a place of both style and substance with views of the Preseli Hills in one direction and farmland which rolls down to the coast in the other.

Penrhiw Farm is a 200-acre dairy farm with its farmhouse B&B in the middle of it all. And while it’s an authentic, organic, still-working farm with a herd of Jersey cows, the accommodation has less of a “country cottage” feel than you might expect. Instead, the four rooms here have all been brought up to date with a modern en-suite bath or shower room in each, a flatscreen TV and a comfy double bed. Each room has individual charm thanks to a mixture of vintage furniture and finishing touches to suit modern tastes. We’re talking exposed bulb lighting and reclaimed-wood walls for the bathrooms. Even though the style is on-trend not much comes without provenance or sustainability here. The reclaimed wood is the farm’s original flooring repurposed, the colourful blankets on the bed are from a mill just down the road. The farmhouse is partly powered by sun and wind and kept warm by wool carpets, new insulation and an air-source heat pump.

If you’ve walked here on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, you’ll be grateful to know that you don’t have to go a step further for dinner. Alan, your host, is an experienced chef who can provide dinner as well as breakfasts, served in the elegant dining room downstairs. If you’ve not arrived on foot you might want to head the half-mile to seaside Goodwick (pronounced with a silent W, if you want to sound like a local) or neighbouring Fishguard where there’s a good pub or two. Walking and cycling are great ways to explore this quieter, unspoilt side of Pembrokeshire and Penrhiw Farm is a great place to base yourself while you do it.

Details

Facilities

Penrhiw has four double en suite bedrooms: two cosy rooms with showers and two bigger rooms with baths. The farmhouse has recently been restored whilst keeping and accentuating the character this lovely old house has. Rich colours and fabrics have been used and carefully chosen antique and vintage furniture make Penrhiw feel homely and welcoming. Sustainability was an important factor in the restoration; heating is supplied by an air source heat pump, the walls, floors and ceilings have been insulated, solar panels and a wind turbine contribute to the power requirements. The carpets are 100% wool. Organic tea and coffee is provided in the bedrooms, as is fresh organic milk. Each room has a flat screen tv. One of our double rooms can also be a twin or could even sleep three. We offer an evening meal to guests and we are licensed.

Suitable For

We have one pet friendly room for well-behaved pets. Pets must be kept under control at all times as this is a working farm with animals.

Nearby

There is a neolithic burial chamber in the field behind the house and the farm is only two miles from the site of the last invasion of mainland Britain. There is an excellent tapestry depicting the events of the invasion in Fishguard town hall. Penrhiw enjoys beautiful countryside and mountain views and is an excellent base for walking and cycling. The first flight to Ireland took off from a field on the farm in 1912 and there is a plaque to commemorate this event 100 metres form the house. Fishguard and Goodwick are both within two miles where you will find some shops and some good places to eat.

The Owner Says

Penrhiw is a restored grade 2 listed Georgian farmhouse on a working organic family farm on the Pembrokeshire Coast, situated less than a mile from the seafront in Goodwick. Parts of the farm date from the 17th century and the area is rich in history. Penrhiw has an abundance of character and enjoys great views and lovely gardens.
The famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path crosses our land.
I am your host, Alan.  I am a former chef who has returned to help run the family farm, where i was born and raised. A keen cyclist, swimmer, runner, and horse rider, I know a lot about the local area and where the best walks and things to visit are.

Getting There

From the ferry terminal roundabout, head up the hill into Goodwick. Pass the train station on your left. You will see the Rose and Crown on your left. Immediately after the Rose and Crown, turn left, then almost straightaway do a u-turn to the right and head up New Hill. After about a third of a mile the hill starts to level off and you will see a lane forking off to the left with a sign for a burial chamber and one for a B&B below it. Take this lane and keep going up this lane (about a third of a mile) until you come to Penrhiw. If using a satnav, enter Penrhiw Farm, Goodwick and it will bring you to the door. Do NOT use the postcode. There is a train station at Goodwick, less then a mile away — but the walk is all uphill!
