4st self cateringThe Grade II Listed 5-star Melin Llanrhian, located on the edge of the peaceful hamlet of Llanrhian, is a beautiful stone watermill built in 1827 and tastefully renovated to an extremely high standard. Outside, there’s a fascinating restored stone-built mill pond where the water was redirected from the stream and released onto the headrace over the wheel set in a stone bank millrace.

Sleeping 4 in 2 bedrooms this character property, provides very comfortable living accommodation. Interestingly, the original mill machinery can still be seen, displayed with subtle lighting, behind glass in the lounge and twin bedroom. The cottage is ideally situated to explore the many beaches nearby.



Atmospheric , historical, stunning, wild, surprising, intriguing, great fish and chips; some of the words visitors to Porthgain have used to describe this pretty fishing village on St David’s Peninsula.
Situated on a steep hill, at the end of a pretty country lane, sloping down towards the sea is the old fishing harbour of Porthgain. Set around a traditional village green with picnic tables and goal posts, this picturesque fishing village, once buzzing with industry is now a very popular tourist destination and boasts two renowned and highly acclaimed restaurants, The Shed Bistro and The Sloop Inn, both serving sensational catch-of –the-day seafood straight from the boat, excellent art galleries, a popular harbour for launching kayaks and dive boats, and of course its superb location in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

The air is crystal fresh and the light clear and bright in Pembrokeshire, perfect for artists. Local art is displayed in two excellent galleries in Porthgain. The night skies are free from light pollution and tranquillity surrounds you.

Porthgain is the ideal location for walking as the Pembrokeshire Coast Path can be reached from both directions with the local beaches of Aberfelin, Traethllfyn, Abereiddy and the Blue Lagoon all within walking distance. The clifftops here offer splendid views of the north Pembrokeshire coast line and a plethora of wildlife and wild flowers; be sure to watch out for the must-see birds found in the area – the chough and the peregrine falcon.
