Granary at Roch Mill, Newgale
from £48 /night help
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated inside Pembrokeshire Coast National Park The Granary at Roch Mill is close to Newgale beach and Solva on the edge of St Davids peninsular. This delightful old cottage has been tastefully converted and is ideal for a couple or small family, though it can accommodate up to four adults if required*.
The Granary comprises three rooms: a bedroom, shower room and a large living area divided tastefully into three zones for cooking, dining and relaxing. Part of the Granary's charm lies in its creative design. The bedroom, for example, includes a "croglofft" sleeping space for two children, which is located above a king-sized bed. The croglofft is accessed by a short but steep paddle-tread stair and, because of restricted head room, is best suited to children under about twelve; though plenty of teenagers and even the occasional adult have enjoyed this cosy sleeping space.
Nestled in picturesque Brandybrook valley the Granary at Roch Mill offers peace and tranquility where you can unwind from the stresses of modern daily life. It is a stunning location offering rural tranquility yet so very close to the wonderful Pembrokeshire coast with its fabulous bays, cliffs, harbours and beaches. Immediately outside the Granary's front door is a seat and picnic table that overlook our smaller water wheel and the beautiful Roch Mill gardens. These are enhanced by the lower mill-race that meanders through them. Beyond the lawn the gardens are bounded by Roch Bridge, the Brandybrook river and two large ponds. Ample parking is provided and a car advisable. The gardens extend to 6 acres, bounded by the river on one side and a 700 year old mill race on the other.
*There is also a full-size double sofa-bed in the living area.

The Pembrokeshire region
Those of you who are new to Pembrokeshire will discover that it is one of Britain's best kept secrets. With all the charm and beauty of Cornwall Pembrokeshire enjoys the benefit of fewer visitors and very little commercialisation. Additionally, it offers the attraction of a local Welsh culture with its own living Celtic language - often heard in the area.
Situated right in the centre of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park The Granary at Roch Mill is close to Newgale beach and Solva on the edge of St Davids peninsular. If walking, outdoor pursuits and wildlife are your "thing" then look no further. This area is simply outstanding for its natural beauty and varied wildlife, especialy seabirds. And, thanks to its National Park status, the coastline, hills and river valleys are quite unspoiled by commercial activity. The coastal path alone offers over 180 miles of beautiful scenery and the offshore islands team with seabirds.
Famous for its surf, Newgale beach is very popular with holiday makers of all kinds. With over 2 miles of sandy beach shouldered by splendid cliffs, caves and rock pools it offers an ideal destination for people of all ages. Inland from Newgale the Brandybrook valley guides a delightful riverside footpath that starts at Roch Mill and meanders gently through woods and meadows providing a tranquil, shady contrast to sun, sand and sea.
Nearby there are opportunities for cycling, horse riding, tennis, golf, rock climbing, coasteeing, boat trips, sailing and canoeing. And, of course, there are lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants to relax in. Our own pub in Roch, The Victoria Inn, is friendly and welcoming and provides excellent beer and grub. The curry n pint on a Friday night is not to be missed!

"An idyllic retreat"
We had a wonderful stay at the Granary. Our boys loved sleeping in the crog loft ( up a steep paddle ladder so not suitable for very small kids but the perfect adventure for our two - aged 6 & 8 ). The Granary was very comfortable and clean with everything you could expect. It is located in a very peaceful valley. We particularly liked watching the water wheel go round and just enjoying the garden. It was very relaxing! But we also visited the local beaches and ventured out to Solva and St. David's - both well worth a visit. You do need a car to explore. But back at base Pat and Dave were very welcoming and made us feel at home and they were happy to recommend some good places to eat nearby.
