Resting centrally in the coastal town of Newport in Pembrokeshire is Maesgwyn, a fabulous, five-bedroom property. Enjoying a prime location near a host of popular eateries, shops, and the Pembrokeshire coast, Maesgwyn offers ten guests and two canine companions a well-appointed base, including flexible sleeping arrangements, a private hot tub and an enclosed, multi-level garden. Benefit from off-road parking for two cars, before entering the property, firstly arriving in the well-equipped kitchen/diner; here you can rustle up delicious meals with the AGA and gas hob, before gathering in the dedicated dining area. Relax in the sitting room, complete with plush sofas, a Smart TV, and a woodburning stove, or head next door for even further peace in the snug/study. As the night unfolds, ascend the steps to the rear garden, benefitting from a decked area, furniture, a barbecue, and an indulgent hot tub, offering the ideal place to unwind after a day of adventure. Head to one of the five bedrooms, dotted across the top two floors, firstly reaching a double, a twin with trundle and and a cosy, windowless child’s bunk room, serviced by a bathroom with roll-top bath and walk-in shower. Climb to the second floor, where you’ll find the final two double bedrooms, serviced by a sleek shower room. Awaken to a coffee in the garden before exploring the town, stocking up on the essentials and dining out at Blas at Fronlas, Tides Kitchen & Wine Bar or The Canteen. A walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from the ‘Ironbridge’ to tidal Newport Sands is a must, as is a visit for the history buffs of the group to Castell Henllys Iron Age Village and the stunning Neolithic Burial Chamber at Pentre Ifan – truly one of the picture postcard images of Wales. Travelling towards Fishguard, soak up the beauty of Lower Town which played host to Hollywood greats such as Gregory Peck in Moby Dick and Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor in Under Milk Wood. Then learn about Welsh heroine Jemima Nicholas’ exploits against the Napoleonic French in the Last Invasion of Mainland Britain of 1797.

For the nature lovers, the Welsh Wildlife Centre in nearby Cilgerran is a treat and on way back to base, take a hike in the mythical Preseli Hils.
