Glan HouseGlan House has an interesting history. It started life as a coaching inn and pub in the mid 19th Century and continued as such until the end of the 20th Century. When its present owners, Patrick and Christine discovered Glan House and the adjoining cottage, they saw its huge potential to become a spacious family home. They also felt it very fitting to continue its tradition as a building that had offered hospitality for nearly a hundred years, and have very successfully run it as a B&B.

Glan House boasts delightful sea views, from the rear of the house, towards Fishguard Bay and Strumble Head. Patrick reports that it is tranquil and calming to watch the ever changing skies across the bay; from dramatic threatening storm clouds, eerie mists hovering over the sea, to vivid glowing sunsets. The windows are also excellent bird watching stations, from where you can follow the buzzards and kites wheeling across the sky.

Before they began trading, Patrick and Christine spent three years renovating the house to the highest specification, and it is much enjoyed and appreciated by family and guests. The kitchen is the sociable hub of this busy home, where the Aga helps to make it what Christine calls, a comfort room. It is perfect for the keen cook and the ideal place for relaxed kitchen meals. With a comfortable seating area and a workstation, it is a multi purpose room, always happily full of people and conversation. Two large windows fill the room with positive, natural light and have views across the garden to the rolling landscape of the enchanting Pembrokeshire countryside.

The house has a pleasing choice of rooms. The large lounge has a wood burning stove to provide winter comfort and a second reception room allows everyone to find a restful space of their own. The four bedrooms enable family or guests to be easily accommodated, and the four bedroom self catering cottage with its own enclosed garden, adds to the flexibility of Glan House. It offers the choice of additional guest rooms, easy three generational living or a property let.

The main garden is a delightful setting in which to relax, and enjoy its tranquil atmosphere, but with unspoilt sandy coves and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path within easy distance of the house, it is equally pleasant to take a walk. The house is on the coastal bus route which provides an easy and convenient way to explore an area rich in beauty and history. Dinas has an excellent village store, an active and friendly community life and there are two good food pubs only a ten minute walk away. Patrick and Christine are sad that the time has come for them to downsize and are going to miss the views, the house and the village. They have eight years of wonderful memories to take away with them.*
