Welcome to Treicert Farm Cottages in Pembrokeshire, four luxury self-catering holiday cottages that have been converted from 18th century farm outbuildings, but with all the contemporary comforts you’d expect for a relaxing break on the Pembrokeshire coast. Owners, Anona and Andrew Thomas live on-site at the farm which has been in Anona’s family for four generations. Although it’s no longer a working dairy farm, the 160 acres of stunning countryside offers an idyllic rural base to explore the local area.
A Family Farm
The original Treicert farm buildings date back to the late 19th century. Anona’s grandparents, Tom and May Davies began to farm here in the 1940s, it was then inherited by Anona’s father and uncle, Glyn and Dylan. Glyn lived at the farm all his life, he married Nesta and they continued the dairy farm until 2014. Anona and Andrew were gifted the farm outbuildings by her parents, Glyn and Nesta. They then decided they wanted to share their beautiful rural haven with holiday guests.
The cottages Bwthyn Bach and Bwthyn Mawr were converted from the original milking parlour in 2005, which were then featured by Channel 5 on their TV programme, ‘Build A New Life In The Country’. In 2010 an old stable was expertly converted to create Y Cartws and then Y Cwtch from an old farm kitchen that was previously used for salting. Easily accessed from a level tarmac lane, each of the four-holiday cottages has ample parking and an enclosed rear garden so that the small guests (pets or children) have plenty of outdoor space to enjoy safely.
Out and About
Treicert Farm Cottages are 4 miles from the beautiful coastal town of Newport with a huge sandy beach and a sheltered harbour (The Parrog), and a selection of shops, pubs, cafes, tennis courts and an excellent golf course overlooking the sea.
Anona and Andrew are passionate about providing the best holiday experience they can for each guest and are on-hand to answer any questions about local attractions and everyday practicalities at the accommodation. Offering advice about the local dog walks on the surrounding farm paths, there is also a small cromlech, ‘Llech Y Dribedd’, in their top field, legend has it that the capstone for the burial chamber, was thrown by a giant from Carningli mountain to its current resting spot.
From the Newport holiday cottages, walkers can enjoy a scenic path with access to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the ‘Witches Cauldron’, approx 2 miles from the cottages. The Witch’s Cauldron or in Welsh; ‘Pwll Y Wrach’, is a dramatic cave formation near Ceibwr Bay. It’s a crater in a hill filled with greeny-blue water, formed where sea waters have eroded soft rocks.

At Treicert farm we have a strong sustainability ethos from converting our holiday homes from existing farm buildings to installing the cottages’ heating system, running off a central ‘biomass’ boiler using wood pellets. Burning the wood pellets is a carbon-neutral process that is much more sustainable than gas or oil.
Pembrokeshire County Council have implemented a full recycling refuse collection and we actively encourage all holiday guests to help with this when they stay in our cottages. Each accommodation has separate recycling containers and we leave all the information you need so that guests are able to wash and sort their waste easily.
Really enjoyed staying at this lovely cottage
Ideal location to enjoy the peace of the countryside but all the major towns/locations are on a short drive away. A very comfortable cottage which was in very good condition and spotless.
Lovely, well equipped cottage set in a quiet area of Pembrokeshire
We were met with some biscuits, home made cakes and a bottle of fizzy grape juice which was very welcoming. A beautiful area. We enjoyed walking, swimming, kayaking, and eating ice creams! Would love to visit again.
Everything about the holiday from booking to coming home was so easy and hassle free
The information provided, the cottage itself, the owners and the area we stayed in were all perfect. We travelled with our two young children and two dogs so it’s important for us to keep things as stress free as possible! The owners were so welcoming yet didn’t impose on us, we wouldn’t hesitate to book again!
