Treathro Farm comprises of 170 acres of green rolling fields, coastal moorland and craggy cliffs tumbling down to the Irish Sea in the Pembrokeshire National Park. There are breathtaking, panoramic views across the open fields to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and Strumble Head lighthouse.
The farm is a working beef farm devoted to breeding pasture fed Ruby Red Devon cattle along with a small flock of Welsh Mule sheep. In addition there are plans to develop some of the traditional farm buildings into luxury holiday cottage accommodation.
Strumble Head (Pen Caer) itself is a glorious wild stretch of the North Pembrokeshire coastal path and has been rated by the National Geographic Magazine as one of the world's greatest walks. It is one of the best sites in Britain to view porpoise, dolphins, seals and occasionally larger whales which can be spotted in the tidal races around the headland using binoculars. There small 'secret' coves to discover including Pwll Arian (Silver Cove), Porth Maenmelyn and Pwll Deri where seals play - a walkers, naturalists, photographers and bird watchers paradise.
There is easy access to whole of the spectacular north Pembrokeshire coastline from the beautiful blue flag beach of Whitesands in St Davids to the harbour town of Fishguard and further north to Newport.
The area is ideal for activities for all ages - surfing, sea fishing, horse riding and golf courses are all available in the near vicinity, as well as boat trips to Ramsey (bird watching) and Caldey Island. There is a good leisure centre and small independent cinema in Fishguard for those rainy days!
The farmhouse itself is set down a quiet lane, behind the house is the courtyard of attractive traditional farm buildings beyond which lie the more modern working farm buildings. Access to the coastal path is 1/2 mile down a private track.
Fishguard and neighbouring Goodwick are about 5 miles away with shops, pubs, restaurants etc. The town also offers excellent transport links with national railway service and cross channel links to Ireland via ferry. Good road connections take you onto Haverfordwest in the centre of the county (with regional airport) and onto Carmarthen and the A48 / M4 link road with fast access to Swansea, Cardiff, the Severn Bridge and beyond
Wartime RAF history!
On the hill above the path and the cliffs stands the old RAF radar station. The site is a World War II radar station that formed part of the Chain Home Low network, specifically designed to detect low flying aircraft. The station became operational in early 1940 providing cover over Cardigan Bay and the southern Irish Sea, and was decommissioned in June 1946. The surviving structures include a transmitter/receiver block with adjacent latrines and aerial gantry base, standby-set house, associated buildings and guard house and an Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) interrogator cubicle and aerial base. The major buildings are mostly built of red brick, often with flat reinforced concrete roofs.
