Hafod Grove; a Stunning, Georgian Mansion House
Additional Location Information
Delightful, Tranquil setting within the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. The North of Pembrokeshire offers the most varied and beautiful scenery and is gorgeous walking country. Nearby are the Preseli Mountains offering relatively easy walking across the ridge. From there are the most breath-taking panoramic views for miles across and beyond Carmarthen Bay and far South to the Sea. By contrast is the Gwaun Valley a beautiful, lush green vale that takes you down from Mount Ingles at Newport down towards the fascinating town of Fishguard famous for artists and exhibitions. You can walk from Hafod Grove to our local bay of Ceibwr with it's stunning rock formations and rare wildlife. There are frequent sightings of porpoises, dolphins, seals and even whales and turtles at times. The next gorge is cut by the River Nevern which flows through the quaint hamlet of Nevern with it's churchyard containing a celtic cross and famous bleeding Yew tree. This same valley is overlooked by Castel Henllys an historically accurate, reconstructed stone age Fort. Well worth a visit. North of Hafod Grove is the quaint and ancient village of St. Dogmaels with it's ruined and romantic abbey and visitors centre, next door is the mill and tea rooms which produces flour and bread ground by the original stones of the mill. Further on is the Historically famous town of Cardigan with it's recently restored Castle as well as offering many shops and restaurants as well as a theatre and cinema. The Estuary of the River Tivy which Cardigan Castle was originally built to guard, flows out past St Dogmaels and offers wonderful sandy beaches and dunes about a mile further on at Poppit Sands on one side and Gwbert on the other. Further up the Tivy is the fantastic Cilgerran Castel which stands hundreds of feet high on a bend of the river. These historical sites are frequently used in summer for Shakespearian productions with are a must see as the venues are fabulously atmospheric.
Hafod Grove offers Sea Views and a huge garden and once formed the owners house of Hafod Grove Farm which during the 19th Century was owned by the Colby family who were great landowners owning great swathes of Pembrokeshire lands. Indeed Colby Gardens, South of the County are now open to the public and Cilgerran Castle was donated to the National Trust by a later relation in the early 1900's. The Property enjoys a beautiful coastal / rural setting and is a true get away from the madding crowd. Situated between two fabulous Sandy beaches of Newport Traeth and Poppit Sands in either direction they are just a 10min drive away. Very conveniently you can drive onto the Beach at Newport. The caves around Ceibwr Bay is a nursery for seal pups during early autumn months so dog owners be aware as often pups are found on the beach. I can honestly say that I have unintentionally swum with a seal (not sure who was the most surprised) and also a pair of Basking Sharks (guess who was the most surprised?).
