    “A beautifully decorated large property big enough for the whole of our family , it was so lovely that it was dog friendly so we could bring them aswell.”

    The large bbq and fire pit went down a storm, the games room was fun to chill at night and all beds comfy and spacious. It's close to many beaches and tourist attractions perfectly located and very quiet. We can't wait to come back for our next trip.

The property

Newcastle Emlyn 6.5 miles, Cardigan 9 miles.

Hafan Dawel is a fabulous, four-bedroom home tucked away in the rural village of Star, near Newcastle Emlyn in Pembrokeshire.

Perfect for friends and families seeking a countryside escape, this pet-friendly home boasts stunning views of the rolling hills and valleys, a games room for those competitive evenings and plenty of outdoor space to soak up the tranquil atmosphere.

Arrive to plenty of private parking and a handy EV charger, before stepping indoors and making yourself at home.

Start your break in the homely sitting room, with a delightful woodburning stove to light as you sink into the plush, velvet sofas on offer.

Travel through the hallway and down to the kitchen/diner, a spacious room with plenty of seating and a selection of state-of-the-art appliances, where you can rustle up homemade meals to be enjoyed as a group of up to eleven while catching up; next door you’ll also locate a convenient cloakroom and a utility.

As the day draws to an end, take a stroll out to the front patio area with furniture or to the rear garden, overlooking a lovely stream, where you can enjoy a nightcap; if you’d prefer an evening of entertainment, the games room features a pool table, table football and darts board - a must for some friendly competition.

Travel upstairs to find four bedrooms made up of a king-size with en-suite walk-in shower and Smart TV, a king-size with sofa bed, a further king-size and a family room with a child bunk and triple child bunk - ideal for the children of the group.

Freshen up in the bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and walk-in shower, providing plenty of space to prepare for your West Wales itinerary.

Step out and explore the sunny, Welsh countryside with a trip to Newcastle Emlyn, a busy market town with the River Teifi running through it, where you’ll find interesting craft shops, plenty of local eateries, along with the remains of Newcastle Emlyn Castle and its striking gatehouse.

On your travels, stop off at Llandysul, a hub for outdoor activities such as kayaking and paddleboarding.

Continue towards the mouth of the Teifi to Cardigan, a bustling market town where you’ll find a fascinating castle which hosted the first Welsh Eisteddfod in 1176 and a High Street of popular independent retail outlets.

In the main season, book a trip out into Cardigan Bay to meet the resident bottle-nosed dolphins or call into the Welsh Wildlife Centre in neighbouring Cilgerran to get back to nature.

From the rolling hills of the Preseli Hills in the Pembrokeshire National Park to the rich Welsh culture and heritage of the counties of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, a stay at Hafan Dawel is a must.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
