Seren Mor | Luxury Self-Catering | Newport Estuary, Pembrokeshire

Seren Mor

Newport, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK

Nestled on the green cliffs of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and winner of the RIBA Welsh Architect Award, this luxury home on the westernmost shore of Wales is a real triumph. With huge horizon vistas through floor-to-ceiling windows and a wild garden which meets the Newport Estuary; Seren Mor seamlessly blends perfect, modern architecture with the wonderful organic world.

Introduction

Described as “the most beautiful location for a house anywhere in the UK” by Sir Colin Stansfield-Smith, one of the UK’s leading architects of the 70s and 80s, Seren Mor stands proud above the water of Newport’s picturesque estuary. Completely sustainable and in prime position for watching the sun melt into the sea, this luxury self-catering home has the most enviable of locations in all of Wales. Throw open enormous windows and let the sea breeze tease through hair on the timber-decked balcony, play in the gardens, or simply gaze across the water to the chapel where the owners of this most marvellous creation were married.

Inside

Overlooking the estuary and with all but one bedroom on the lower floor, this upside-down seaside house has five bright bedrooms. The super king-size master bedroom, which resides downstairs, has a balcony and en suite with sunset views and a separate dressing room. There are a further three bedrooms on this floor, one twin and two super kings, while upstairs on the first floor is one super king-size bedroom. Making the most of the superb panoramas, the open-plan living room and kitchen boasts views to die for and is a heavenly spot to while away the day. While granny relaxes in the snug, let the kids let off steam in the TV room.

Outside

With a large terraced garden overflowing with wildflowers and butterflies, hidden clearings to discover and secret pathways leading to the beach, it’s no surprise that Seren Mor’s grounds are as gorgeous and as cared for as its interiors. Watch the world slowly wake from slumber with a morning coffee on the balcony, find a quiet spot with a view surrounded by vibrant blossoms and spend summer nights feasting with a unique stained-glass backdrop in the secluded garden dining area. For adventures further afield, walk the three miles to the top of craggy Carningli Mountain or take kayaks from the garden store for fun on the water.

From the owner

“Seren Mor was the product of a long journey. From falling in love with the house and its views as a child when the previous owners (who still live in the village) regularly threw open their doors to their friends and family, to the difficult decision to demolish the house and rebuild it, it has been a place of constant inspiration.”

From the owner

My father’s cricketing friend, Sir Colin Stansfield- Smith helped us realise the vision we had for the house: maximising the wonderful views and the light it offers, whilst being sensitive to the environment and surroundings so as to melt into the hillside.

Latterly, John Pardey was an incredible architect to work with and his enthusiasm and excitement for the unique nature of the site was evident in the hours he spent 'getting it right'. Richard and I can honestly say there is nothing we would change about the design and finished product, we still get butterflies every time we drive down towards the sea from the top of the hill towards the house.

We are happy to share our home with you. I personally recommend painting and photographing whilst here; the light is unsurpassed, the sunsets offer an ever changing tableau, the bird-life and vegetation a veritable treasure-trove of colours and vitality.

We hope you too have the feeling of never wanting to leave. Come rain or shine, it's a place to hang out, watch the world go past and chill.
