Why we've chosen Loft Cottage:

Loft Cottage is a traditional Pembrokeshire 'croglofft' cottage which was renovated over a three year period. It has been fully restored to retain its character and orginal features. The location in the heart of Pembrokeshire is ideal for exploring this, the greenest (and many would say prettiest) of Welsh counties.

Features:

  • The cottage is centrally heated and included in the holiday price. There is an open fire and woodburner.
  • All windows have country views- you can't see any other houses
  • Kitchen area with a gas cooker and hob, fridge (with ice box), microwave.
  • Cegin Fawr with 4m high ceiling giving sense of space. Slate floors, woodburner, sofa, table & chairs. Doors front and back.
  • Croglofft with a double oak bed C1780, open as mezzanine to room below.
  • Shower room with a powerful shower
  • Enclosed garden with furniture and access to over 2 acres of meadow.

Why is this a greener holiday?

First, to truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: The nearest train station is Fishguard, which is a 12 mile taxi ride from the property. However the only trains to Fishguard are twice a day to the ferry terminal (Fishguard Harbour) arriving at 13.15 and, less helpful, 01.26! Luckily, there are plenty of trains to Haverfordwest and buses from there to Fishguard.

Onsite the owners have implemented a number of green initiatives including restoring a derelict building for tourism purposes, rather than constructing a new one. Local craftsmen were used for the restoration. Lime and limewashes were used in the reconstruction and all timber was recycled or from already dead trees. The boiler is modern, energy efficient and the wood burner uses wood from a sustainable source. The building is fully insulated and the windows are doubled glazed. Low energy lights are used throughout. Natural paints and pigments are used. Most of the furniture is antique.

Top green features of Loft Cottage:

 
  • Rescue of previously derelict building & attention to retaining original features

  • 'Cutting-in' to save every inch of original timber

  • No cement or concrete used in conservation - only lime and limewashes

  • Most efficient modern boiler

  • Mostly antique furnishings

  • 'Gravel' is recycled waste slate chippings from Welsh slate quarries
