Victorian House, Newport 2075
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This large, end of terrace Victorian house was built in the mid-1800's by John Jenkins, a sea captain. It is now safely in the hands of the fifth generation of the same family.
It has recently been lovingly and sympathetically renovated with considerable style and flair and enjoys a great location in the heart of Newport/Trefdraeth.
Newport has everything you might need or want for an excellent holiday - Parrog beach, the Nevern estuary, Carningli Mountain, the Pembrokeshire coastal path and plenty of welcoming pubs, restaurants, galleries and interesting, independent shops.
Just a short drive from the town, there is also an 18-hole golf course with stunning views of the Bay.
ENTRANCE FROM THE STREET. There is a small, gated and walled forecourt to the front of the house with a bench, which is perfect for a cup of coffee in the afternoon sunshine.
Entrance is into the hallway, with its colourful Victorian mosaic floor tiles.
Off the hallway is the QUIET/READING ROOM which has a period fireplace (for decoration only) and is furnished with a sofa, two armchairs, well-stocked bookcase and antique sea chest/coffee table.
The hall opens out into the charming SITTING/FAMILY ROOM, which has a woodburning stove and is furnished with a sofa, two armchairs, nest of tables, footstool and a 37" TV with freeview and DVD player.
At the back of the house, there is a striking L-SHAPED KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM with slate floors, granite work tops, slate windowsills and a bank of cheerful flowers outside the kitchen window. The kitchen is accented in red throughout and has dove-grey fitted cupboards, a top of the range range-master cooker with 2 electric ovens, 6 gas rings and a separate grill, an integrated fridge and freezer, belfast sink and a large pantry cupboard.
The DINING AREA has a huge reclaimed teak dining table with 8 antique chairs. There is also a wall-mounted 32" TV with freeview.
The UTILITY AREA has a double belfast sink, integrated dishwasher, integrated washer/dryer and a meat-safe.
Stairs lead up from the hallway to a half landing, which splits on the first floor.
The GALLERY LANDING is a light, peaceful spot with a reading lamp and chair and a gallery of photographs of the five generations of owners. Just off the landing, there is a small CLOAKROOM with WC and hand basin.
The GARDEN BEDROOM, which opens out into the garden, has an impressive original Victorian fireplace, double iron bedstead and an En-suite shower room with a suite of shower, WC and circular bowl sink on a slate slab.
BEDROOM 2 and BEDROOM 3 are both cosy rooms with twin beds.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire's attraction is its peace and tranquillity which has a hypnotic effect on visitors who return year after year, if not more frequently. The coastline and villages have changed very little over the centuries.
The superb sandy beaches and quiet coves, once the haunt of smugglers, are around every twist and turn of the coastal lanes. Both on the coast and in the Preseli hills there is a profusion of beautiful wild flowers, encouraged by the mild climate, high sunshine hours and influenced by the Gulf Stream. Pembrokeshire is a haven for nature lovers with foxes, badgers and birds too numerous to mention literally on your doorstep.
Newport is defined by its beach - the name in Welsh, Trefdraeth, simply means "Town on the Sands". Newport houses are now amongst the most expensive in West Wales, not simply because of the character of the town or the "golden" sands, but because it is such a complete holiday centre on a par with Tenby, Saundersfoot & St. Davids.
Newport has a bit of everything you could ever really want or need in a holiday destination. There is a diverse range of artist's studios, galleries, pubs, restaurants, individual shops and a Boat Club and Golf Club. Couple this with a wide range of excellent walks along the coastal path and up to Carn Ingli for the panoramic views and you can see why this little town has such appeal. Traeth Mawr is the big Beach and is a long stretch of sand, safe for bathing, windsurfing, body boarding and sailing. The Nevern Estuary is a haven for wild life and is a favourite among bird watchers. A walk from the Iron Bridge along the footpath to the side of the estuary leads to the Parrog where there is a small beach, Café Bar and Boat Club. During the summer months the Boat club organise various activities including sailing, crab lining and occasional BBQ's. On a summer evening the Parrog is a good place to watch the sunset or chat with the friendly locals. Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain) stands 350 m high above Newport. It is not difficult to climb and the summit is rocky. Once you have made it to the top there are fantastic views over Newport and the bay below and you can even see Ireland on a very clear day.

This house is amazing! We stayed at 'Victorian House' for a birthday celebration and it turned out to be one I will never forget. It is steeped in ancestral history and has been decorated to the very highest standard with both the contemporary and traditional blending seamlessly. The kitchen / diner is ideal for family get-togethers being both well equipped and very spacious. The Garden bedroom is very nice, with its en suite shower room and door leading out into the garden from which you can see Carn Ingli. The Attic bedroom is surprisingly airy, again with a very nice shower room and the remaining two twin bedrooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The family bathroom has a free-standing bath and large shower and there is a seperate cloakroom on the first floor landing.
The house is within falling distance of the pubs and restaurants of Newport and a short walk to the river-side walk to The Parrog.
In short, if this was my house (a) I wouldn't rent it out and (b) I'd very rarely leave it! Book NOW before Mrs. Humfrey comes to her senses and moves back in herself!
