The Hideaway Holiday


Dear Mandy and Derek

We have had a wonderful week visiting many places with many more to see (Caldey Island!!), but coming back in the evening has been a delight. You work so hard and are wonderful people. Just keep thinking of what might have been.

Much love to you both

Eilean and Joe - September 2023


Had the most relaxing time at The Hideaway. Visited spectacular beaches and amazing countryside.

Will definitely return.

Ian and Cheryl - September 2023

Wow. Just wow, what a wonderful time we have had. The Hideaway has everything you could possibly want in it. Couldn't find fault with anything.

Mandy and Derek are amazing, very hard working people, and it's a pure pleasure to have met them, along with all the animals and not forgetting the beautiful dogs.

Now that we have found you, we will be back.

Thank you so much

Maria and Paul - August 2023


Thank you Mandy and Derek for your warm welcome and for providing us with fresh, wholesome and nutricious eggs. We really liked the fresh spring water too!

The 'Hideaway' is very cosy and has all the amenities you need for a comfortable, relaxing and tranquil base for a holiday.

This part of Wales, particularly the coast, has some outstanding and breathtaking views and beaches.

Neil and Olga - August 2023

Have had a lovely but eventful holiday and would like to thank Mandy for her kindness in taking me to A&E. Thank you so much.

We loved meeting your wonderful and so friendly pups - will miss their greeting us everyday. Greta adored them though was very naughty one evening and decided the garden was much better and cooler. Back to basics for recall when we get home I think.

Hope we might see you again sometime.

Thankyou for your kindness,

Feedback - Aug 2022


The perfect 'Hideaway'! Amazing hosts. Mandy and Derek friendly, helpful without taking away from our privacy. Such a lovely spot to explore this part of Wales - a week was just not long enough. Would love to come back again.

Barnard and Monica Klompas - July 2022


“The owners were very friendly, causing us to feel welcome at all times. We would certainly want to go back there should we have the opportunity in the future. Nothing was ever too much, always responding with friendliness and willingness to provide.”

Feedback - Jul 2022


Glynelwyn - The Hideaway. A perfect place to chill, and Mandy and Derek an amazing and interesting couple. Thankyou for a memory - one that hopefully we can repeat at sometime in the future.

Terry and Prim - Brighton - July 2022


Whilst looking for a few well-earned day's away with my hubby and our lockdown puppy I repeatedly kept coming across 'The Hideaway'. Some may say I was blinkered; others may think it was fate....meant to be. Once we arrived I knew it was the latter.

 On arrival we were met by Mandy an amazing lady we later learnt was a person of limitless talents. Our induction onto the property was well explained & we were made to feel instantly at home { seriously by checkout we felt part of the family }.

The Hideaway has a private seated front yard that is gated with a 3ft wall for privacy and security. Our accommodation had everything we needed from fresh free range eggs, Welsh cakes, kitchen basics & cleaning items. There is a cosy lounge/dining area with a microwave Oven/grill also a double electric hotplate. I cooked twice a day & thoroughly enjoyed it, I didn't feel limited at all. The Bedroom is not dog friendly and rightly so. Also no furry friends on the sofas/bed. Linen smelt fresh & was crisp and clean. In fact everywhere was spotless.

My husband Gareth thought The Hideaway was 5 star. I believe the whole holistic experience with wind chimes twinkling is second to none. We had a secluded/private Summerhouse which was great for doing my morning Tai Chi and meditations. Derek & Mandy have even provided binoculars for a beautiful view over the Preseli Hills.

 Our Collie fitted in well with Mandys Border Collies Pip, Tig & Dash. There were stories of each individual group of animals that reside on Glynelwyn Farm from Anglo-Nubian Goats, Chickens, Ducks, Horses, Pedigree Pigs & Faithmead Sheep. We found well researched literature on every available walking route if that is what you are passionate about, We did absolutely nothing but rest and read. We never felt the need to leave the farm. It was literally a

breath of fresh air for us. I now realise when reading their Visitor Book while so many couples write of their return. We've already arranged a second break this year. I do not often agree with my husband but on this occasion The Hideaway really is 5***** With love until next time.

Marcia, Gareth and Bryn x - June 2022


Our second visit to 'The Hideaway'. It is a comfortable and very peaceful place to stay. Great location to stay and explore. We have had a fantastic week. Mandy and Derek are fantastic hosts. Pip, Tig and Dash are full of fun and had great fun with our border collie Finn. Thank you Mandy and Derek for the eggs, milk and welsh cakes. See you all next year.

Martin and Julie and Finn - Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales - June 2022


We have enjoyed a lovely week and have found 'The Hideaway' a lovely, cosy base to explore Pembroke.
A quiet place to really relax and 'forget about the world'! Thankyou Mandy and Derek for being wonderful hosts, being there but not intrusive. Very fiendly and accommodating. We hope to visit again.
Duncan and Angela Hill and Kylie - Shropshire - May 2022


Great place to stay for peace and quiet, this is a smallholding in the middle of nowhere, but within easy reach of all the places Pembroke has to offer, the annex is small and cosy, with everything you need really, and comfortable bed, we got to see some day old piglets too, even one of the sheep came to say hello, and their 3 collies, owners Mandy and Derek, are very friendly and helpful also, nothing negative to say really, ideal for couples, we hope to return on our next visit to Pembroke, thank you both for a relaxing break.
Peter and Georgina - May 2022


Just what we needed, total relaxation. Thankyou both for a lovely mini stay, we will see you very soon x
Nigel, Jackie, Roxy and Lilly - November 2021

Great little place to stay, lovely hosts who were easy to talk to and had recommendations for the area. A central location to get to Pembroke and Barafundle Bay or the Precelli Hills and Cardigan. We enjoyed it and would recommend it to any one who wants a couple of days of solitude wanting to do their own thing without fuss and bother. Stanley, our dog, enjoyed his stay too.
October 2021

A cosy, comfortable and well-equipped 'Hideaway'. Quiet and peaceful location - a great base to explore the area.
Chris, Deb and Stanley - October 2021

A great base in rural Carmarthenshire in the shadow of the Preselis. Some good walks on your doorstep. The goats, pigs and chucks are a bonus and the eggs were excellent!
Tom, Fiona and Rusty - September 2021

Thank you so much for a lovely few days here after such a long wait since we booked first. The Hideaway has been the perfect base for us to explore and re-visit some of the beautiful scenery around. It's been a perfect opportunity for us to relax and unwind afyer 18 hard months. We would definately recommend here to others. Bo has certainly enjoyed herself here too.
Thanks again
Mark and Jenny and Bo, Llantwit Major - September 2021

The Hideaway location was perfect for our 3 night stay. Peaceful, relaxing place to recharge. Scenic views of fields and Preseli Hills sitting by the summerhouse. Here we enjoyed meals and sunsets with a glass of wine and a G&T.
Mandy & Derek are a lovely couple who gave us the warmest welcome to their idyllic piece of Pembrokeshire with the dogs and animals. Enjoyed tea & Welsh cakes and eggs from their Hens. We look forward to another stay.
September 2021

Loved The Hideaway. Everything we expected, very comfortable. Friendly welcome from the owners and their 2 lovely dogs.
Within reach of coastal towns both north and south of the area.
August 2021

Our second visit to Mandy and Derek's and the experience gets better. A very welcoming couple. A lovely location with challenging running routes if you're into that kind of thing. Lots of places to visit within 20/30 minutes - need more time to visit this beautiful part of Wales. We will be returning very soon! Thankyou.
PS Might bring the boys next time.
Chris and Caroline, Staffordshire - August 2021

Lovely to be back in South Wales, 1st time in 5 years. Mandy and Derek, great welcome from our hosts. The Hideaway may be compact but it is very comfortable, including a welcome pack of Welsh cakes, milk and eggs. Other nice touches, Best Ever kitchen paper towels, tea bags, lovely towels. Weather ; stayed in when it was wet - 2 days. When dry and sunny visited St Dogmaels, Manorbier and Amroth. Lovely holiday. The Hideaway hugely recommendable. The Yorkshire Shepherdess an excellent read!
Claire and Bill, West Midlands - August 2021

We had a few lovely days at The Hideaway, so peacefull there we was happy just to watch the animals on the farm and chill, enjoyed sitting in the sun house, we will be going back hopefully next July, it was a very safe place for our dogs who enjoyed it as well, Mandy and Derek were very nice and helpfull too.
Jill and Barry - July 2021

Lovely hosts, compact but very comfortable accommodation. Great location, very peaceful and close to local amenities and great for visiting Pembrokeshire.
We had a wonderful time
Paul, Deborah and Molly pooch - May 2021

Despite dreadful weather (all week) and the Covid 19 restrictions our stay at The Hideaway was perfect. The property is set in the most idyllic countryside but within easy access to the coast, the Preseli Hills and of course the magical town of Cardigan. However, the icing on the cake was the owners who made us feel very welcome - thank you.
Feedback - October 2020

Perfect location to get away from the business of everyday life and go exploring the near by hidden gems. Pleasant welcome on arrival and wondering service from the owners.
Feedback - September 2020

What a lovely week we have had in The Hideaway which was the perfect base for our holiday. We found it to be just the right size for the two of us, very cosy and comfortable, and we particularly enjoyed sitting in the summer house watching the weather go by with a cuppa. Despite some variable weather we found something delightful to do every day and explored moor and coast, town and city of this beautiful corner of Wales.
Our thanks also to Mandy and Derek who made us feel so welcome, not forgetting Pip and Tig of course!

Jill and Ollie dog, Dorset - June 2019

"Thought "The Hideaway" was a very good name. As it was such a nice little place to stay and relax in the countryside. Was so nice to just sit in the garden watching the wildlife. Buster (our French Bulldog) loved exploring the secret garden, and the summer house. Was nice chatting to Mandy about her sheep and the wool she gets from them. And just had to buy some wool. We will be coming back soon. As want to see a lot more of the country and coasts around here."
"Such a nice place to stay and relax. Loved the garden and summer house. Simon enjoyed using his camera and taking pictures of all the wildlife. Both of us and our dog have enjoyed staying here. And will be back later on in the year. Enjoyed seeing all the wool Mandy had. And bought some lovely coloured wool x"

The accommodation was small but well-equipped and a summer house is available to sit in to have a drink & watch the sun go down, with lovely views over the fields & hills. All in all a very enjoyable stay.”

"A wonderful week of visiting this lovely area. Bijou cottage equipped with everything required for self catering. Comfy bed much appreciated!"
Cyd and George, Devon

“I searched long and hard for somewhere to take my grumpy old nearly blind dog on holiday. Had to be school holidays, wanted a rural location where we could choose to visit places but also get some peace and quiet; The Hideaway was simply perfect! The owners were very understanding of my old lady and the annec has everything you could need. It was simply spotless and I've stayed in plenty of hotels that wouldn't come close to their standards. The kitchen has everything from cutlery, to kitchen roll, sponges, bottle opener, all those little things you usually have to buy, but not here. The complimentary fresh free range eggs and welshcakes were a superb welcome. I can't recommend it enough.
Many Thanks!”

Cathie and Helen, Port Talbot

"Such a cosy 2 person cottage in beautiful peaceful area surrounded by pretty villages and within comfortable driving distance to larger towns and wonderful coastline/beaches. Such a pleasure meeting the owners Mandy &Derek, not forgetting their three dogs. The breakfast time greeting of 'come and play' from Tash was a daily treat.

Very best wishes to you both, hugs for the dogs"

"Dear Mandy, Just a quick email to say thank you and Derek very much for our very enjoyable few days – short but sweet! The Hideaway was ideal and we were very comfortable, warm and cosy. Even though the weather was very wet on one of the days, it really did not stop us doing anything. The highlight of the week was looking around the farm with all your lovely animals. It was obvious to us that it is very hard work but you and Derek were always so happy and cheerful. It was lovely to see how much the animals are cared for and loved. Thank you for answering our many questions. We get smallholder and country magazines but it is never the same as actually talking to people (especially when they are as nice as you!). We look forward to coming back next year at some point. Best wishes."

"Small but perfectly formed, that's 'The Hideaway'. It has everything to hand. Everything seems to have been thought through so carefully by Mandy and Derek, from decent sharp knives in the kitchen to night lights, up to date leaflets and the 'welcome' milk in the fridge.I can't see us staying anywhere else now that we have found you."

"We have had a lovely time here at Glyn Elwyn, the weather was kind to us for October and we had some lovely walks on local beaches, was great to meet Mandy and Derek and the dogs of course! Our time spent seeing the animals was extra special - we had a lovely peaceful and restful 3 days thanks again!!"

"Thankyou both for a truly wonderful holiday. A truly beautiful place to stay! The best bit for me was the tour of the farm! We had a fabulous time. We will definately be back as so much more to explore that a week is just not long enough. I hope when we do return you can convince Mick some more about the joys of keeping sheep, as you did such a good job of it this time! Good luck with the piglets to be, hope everything goes well for them and the rest of your beautiful animals and of course yourselves, Holly and Tash xxx"
