Award-winning 18th century B&B near Pembrokeshire Coast sold

Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co has completed on the sale of East Trewent Farm, an award-winning bed and breakfast located in the beautiful village of East Trewent, Pembrokeshire, a few minutes’ walk from the beach at Freshwater East.


Situated within the Pembrokeshire National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the four-star property is well positioned just minutes from Broadhaven South Beach, Barafundle Bay, Stackpole Estate and the Bosheston Lily Ponds, making it the ideal accommodation to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast. Rated by National Geographic as the second-best coastline in the world, with 186 miles of magnificent and varied landscape and over 50 beaches, the area is a magnet for visitors year-round.

East Trewent Farm comprises a recently refurbished stone farmhouse which dates back to the 1800s and features original Grade II listed outbuildings dating back to the 15th century, along with three self-catering cottages and a unit with four B&B style rooms. The buildings have retained much of their original charm and character, showcasing exposed beams and open stable bars formed from the remaining farm outbuildings.

Having owned East Trewent Farm since 2013, the previous owners, Graham and Sylvia Thomas made the decision to bring the business to market to seek retirement.
The business has been purchased by Jeremy and Rebecca Alderwick, who have relocated from Kent to fulfil their desire for a lifestyle change. COVID-19 led to the pair to the realisation that Jeremy could continue to run his London-based consulting business from Wales, so Rebecca could take on this new venture. It’s a return to their roots: Jeremy and his family ran a beach-side restaurant in Nolton Haven, in the north of the county, for many years. They plan to reopen as soon as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted for self-catering holiday accommodation.

They comment, “Sylvia and Graham have put so much love and hard work into the business. We are very fortunate to take it over in such good shape and are looking forward to building on what they have done.  Our focus is to make the business sustainable and environmentally friendly, using local suppliers and in the longer term, developing it as a hub for a range of events and family gatherings.”

Richard Thomas, Senior Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Hospitality team handled the sale and comments, “The sale of East Trewent Farm represents the ongoing demand for high quality self-catering accommodation, driven largely by the overall growth of the staycation market due to COVID-19. The idyllic countryside location and lifestyle opportunity made this business particularly appealing to those coming from more urban areas. We wish the new owners the very best of luck with their new endeavour.”

Previous owners, Graham and Sylvia Thomas add, “We take many happy memories away with us from East Trewent Farm and wish Jeremy and Rebecca every success for the future. Christie & Co was pivotal in providing a smooth transition, communication was excellent, and they have our thanks.”
