Tregwynt Nursery is a....
The house has been well built and insulated, with UPVC windows for efficient heat retention and easy maintenance. The design is ideal for a small family or couple with large principal rooms and an open plan, farmhouse-style kitchen/dining and family room. There are two large first floor double bedrooms, each benefitting from an en-suite bath/shower room. The ground floor Snug/ TV room could also serve as a bedroom for those with limited mobility, with the convenience of a ground floor shower room. There are dual aspect windows in most rooms providing plenty of natural light and delightful garden, river and countryside views.
During the 15 year ownership of the present vendors the house has been improved and upgraded to include new tiled floors throughout the main living areas, updating of the kitchen, and recently refurbishment of the bathroom and en-suite shower room
During this time much creative work has been lovingly undertaken in the grounds and gardens which enjoy a warm, sunny micro-climate sheltered from sea winds and spray in a little valley, just a half a mile from one of the most beautiful, rugged, unspoilt coastlines in the country.
The remains of the old stone cottage were converted into a workshop with open beams and slate roof, and the old implement shed was replaced with an attractive and practical, open barn with fully insulated studio providing an ideal space for a home office, arts or craft workshop.
Tregwynt Nursery is in the hamlet of Tregwynt in the parish of Granston, within the St. Davids Peninsular. There’s something special about this little peninsula with its quality of light, unspoilt natural terrain and breath taking coastal scenery. It’s a visual feast attracting artists and creative folk to settle here, drawn by such inspirational surroundings. Across the picturesque little valley, Tregwynt Mill has stood on this site since 1819 taking fleeces from the local sheep farms and spinning them into woollen yarn before weaving into cloth and blankets. Today the mill makes a range of upmarket blankets, cushions, clothing and accessories with a world wide customer base.
The friendly little village of Trefin with a tea room, craft shop and pub is few miles distant, with The Ship Inn serving good food in a convivial atmosphere.
Nearby are many picturesque and appealing coastal communities in hamlets, harbours, villages and towns including the smallest city in the UK. St Davids was granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the quite magnificent Cathedral. In reality it’s a small attractive village with all the necessary amenities: food shops, doctor, chemist, dentist, hotels, boutiques, art galleries, excellent pubs and fine restaurants. St Davids Cathedral has been a dominant presence since the 12th century and was a popular pilgrimage destination throughout the Middle Ages and indeed remains so to this day. Adjacent to the cathedral stands the magical ruins of the medieval Bishops Palace. Whitesands Bay, one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, carries the prestigious European Blue Flag Award.
The larger towns of Fishguard – approx. 5 miles, market town of Haverfordwest – approx. 15 miles and Cardigan - approx. 20 miles distant all provide a full range of amenities and larger superstores. Road, rail and sea links are excellent.
Formerly called ‘The Nursery’, it was well know for early season runner beans which were quickly transported to Covent Garden Market in London and available for sale to eager consumers within 24 hours of picking. The business grew quickly with the expansion of the nursery greenhouses to try and accommodate the demand for these flavourful, early season beans. A derelict stone cottage stood in the grounds – now a feature in the ‘Secret Garden’, but no habitable dwelling existed until the build of the current house in 1998.
Approached from a quiet coastal road the property features a lovely curving driveway through a handsome galvanised steel gate set in stone pillars, sweeping past impressive stone walls and mature trees and shrubs down to a large parking area between the workshop, open barn and house. Immediately your spirits lift at the sights and sounds of nature in this truly stunning setting.

It’s fully insulated including the pine floor and roofline. Three decorative side windows give views of the riverside patio, greenhouse, lawns, flower beds and wooded areas beyond. The stable door permits one to listen to the river ‘singing’ over the rocky bed as it courses by, and a little log burner provides 2KW of heat and a wonderful ambiance during the cooler months.

In the centre a mature California grapevine boasts an old gnarly trunk and produces masses of seedless white grapes each season. A nectarine tree is well settled and productive and a bed of garlic is already thriving, with plenty of room for seasonal produce, as well as sweet-smelling sweet peas on their climbing frames, in the spacious sunny warmth of a rather special greenhouse.
Handy storage/potting shed with recently replaced roof and sliding entry doors.
Gardens and Grounds
Enchanting, peaceful, spiritual and truly beautiful…. the setting is simply magical!
The sparklingly clean Tregwynt River babbles away at the garden's edge with over 300 feet of landscaped frontage, on its meandering journey to the coast a ½ mile distant. Selectively chosen specimen trees such as the rare Wollemi tree from Australia, a Brazilian Jelly Palm and the unusual Drymis tree from Chile provide unique and beautiful additions to the grounds. Eucalyptus (Bog Gum), Bottle Brush, Palms and Tree Ferns all thrive in this Mediterranean style environment.
The murmuring river with its mossy stoned banks (fortified by the vendors), pretty Accoya wood bridge over to the National Trust woodlands on the opposite side, the bog garden with enormous gunnera, the tree ferns dotted throughout the gardens, the small orchard with Russet, Laxton and cooking apples, a rockery in the blue stones of the ridge with a pretty timbered shelter around the love seat beneath, a cool shady fern garden, the patio right on the riverside, the ‘secret garden’ in the remains of the old cottage, the expanse of green lawn, the early flowering magnolias and unusual selection of mature trees and shrubs, masses of pretty snowdrops and daffodils in early spring, are only few of the delights to behold in this creative and lovingly tended garden.
There is also a well constructed chicken house and large (50 x 12 foot) soft fruit cage with an aluminium frame, galvanised mesh sides and plastic mesh roof – housing American Tayberries and rhubarb along with blueberry and blackcurrant bushes. Nearby are raised vegetable and flower beds, with a riverside composting area behind the open barn, and flag-stoned patios to enjoy around the house and throughout the gardens. Beautiful stone walls border beds and paths with the entire property immaculately maintained.
