Why we've chosen Clynfyw Farm Cottages, West Wales
Based on a 200 acre family-run organic farm and woodland, a holiday at Clynfyw Countryside Centre allows you to relax in a quiet, beautiful environment with stunning views of the Cych valley and north Pembrokeshire countryside.
There are two cottages at Clynfyw (pronounced ‘Klin-view’) Countryside Centre, each of which have their own distinctive character.
Both of our cottages are suitable for families and have central heating.
Why is this a greener holiday?
To truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: the nearest train station is Carmarthen, which is 20 miles from the accommodation. It makes for a wonderful hilly cycle ride. Alternatively, buses are available, but irregular. Onsite the owners have taken a number of green measures to reduce the environmental impact of their tourism business and contribute positively to their surroundings, earning Gold from the GTBS.
