Distances To Other Facilities And Attractions

The Immediate Vicinity 

Newport village with its beautiful Sands is only 4 miles away by road. It is the nearest location for shops including a baker, butcher, fishmonger (and yes there is a candlestick maker en-route!). It also has a small Spar supermarket – with extended opening hours) and a range of facilities including a variety of local foods in its restaurants and public houses. It is also worth noting that there is a Tourist Information Centre in Newport and it has a hairdresser and a bank with a cash machine! Gellifawr Country Hotel barely a mile away is the closest place to eat and socialise. The Dyffryn Arms is renowned in the area. This is a really traditional watering hole where beer is served through a hatch by one of the great characters of the valley, Bessie. The Gwaun Valley Brewery and Bluestone Brewery are both only 4 miles away and they offer an excellent insight into the micro brewing process.  Live acoustic music is performed at the Gwaun Valley Brewery on Saturday nights. Pembrokeshire Candle Centre is two miles away and is the only place in Wales where you can see hand dipped candles being made.
