Furnished throughout with locally-sourced antiques and quality modern pieces, the cottage’s homely feel is enriched with quirky and original local artists’ work adorning the walls.

Back through the sitting room and down the corridor, with its original prints and paintings, you will find a separate wc and basin, the family bathroom with walk-in shower, and then the bedrooms: the first of which has full-sized bunk beds and a further single, with enchanting views over the garden to the river and ample storage space. The quality of decor and attention to detail is carried through to the master bedroom which boasts an impressive solid wooden king-sized bed with white linen and luxurious pure cotton throws, offering a warm welcome each night or a cosy place for a lie-in in the mornings. There is plenty of hanging space with full-length mirrored wardrobes, and the same wonderful views over the garden and river.

This is, irrefutably, a rambler’s heaven, a fisherman’s dream, a place for family bonding time, another dimension to a child’s education, a quiet retreat, and somewhere to recharge your batteries – you Experience Môr than you might expect here at Glantawel!

Approached by a 600m drive, this tranquil property is just over 2 miles from the coastal town of Newport with its excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. The 2.5 mile long, unspoilt golden beach at Newport Sands (dog friendly all year round) is close by, and upstream is the picturesque village of Nevern with its Norman Church, famous Weeping Yew, Celtic Cross and popular village pub The Trewern Arms.

The cottage, while completely private in its own enclosed garden, is close to Dyffryn Tawel  and Glandwr, and is perfect for dog owners, walkers and families. It is also ideal for larger groups looking to rent all three properties together, for an idyllic & special gathering.

Glantawel has a faithful and committed following: one of our regular families has just booked for their sixth stay in two years!

Special care is needed with children in the Cwm Tawel properties as the River Nevern flows alongside the gardens, approximately 35 yards from the cottages.
