About The Owners

Anne and Helen have recently settled in St Dogmaels after 16 years of living in Cardiff where Helen was a lecturer in English at Pontypridd College. Today Helen is following her dream to open a B&B by the sea. Her partner Anne is a freelance illustrator and painter – take particular note of the sublime paintings of Burt, Marcia and Frieda.

Restoring Oriel Milgi has been a highly successful project. With the help of some highly praised local builders they have breathed new life into this remarkable home. 

  • The design, layout and styling across the whole house. You will enjoy returning to your rooms and relaxing in the communal living space. The house is also full of character, with an original concentric Georgian staircase taking you from the original low-ceiling, Welsh slate-floored cottage-style rooms on the ground floor, to the late Georgian high ceiling bedrooms on the first floor.
  • Eating out at 25 miles eating house in Cardigan which as the name suggest sources all it seasonal produce from within 25 Miles. It also has more a traditional sister restaurant - The Ferry Inn - which is five minutes walk from Oriel Milgi and has the most amazing terrace oeverlooking the estuary at St Dogmael's.
  • It is a house with a past and a bright future. It has been a grocer's shop, a cobblers, as well as a home to the man who drove the first steam train into Cardigan! Today it is home to a collection of paintings, prints, photographs and ceramics by contemporary Welsh and international artists. Many of the paintings on display are by Anne, whose work can also be seen in The Lemon Tree Gallery, St Dogmaels and Harbour Lights Gallery, Porthgain.
  • The Pembrokeshire coastal path which came second in the National Geographic's Top 100 Coastal Destinations 2010. There are also lots of lovely walks from the door around the village, along the Teifi estuary or up into the local woods and fields.
  • Helen and Anne who are very welcoming and easy going company. And how could we not mention their beautiful whippets, Burt, Marcie and Frieda.
  • St Dogmaels is a traditional Welsh village on the estuary of the River Teifi with the remains of the medieval Abbey at its core, three pubs, deli, tea-room, shop and quirky Post Office and a great fish and chip shop (which usually has a huge queue outside). Ask Helen and Anne for their top tips in and around for the best places to eat.
  • Poppit Sands – a wide sandy beach which is a 30 minutes walk from St Dogmaels (you can drive there in a few minutes) and the northern end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Great for just about everything – surfing, swimming, rock pooling  and boogie-boarding. For more information on St Dogmaels and Poppit Sands go to St Dogmaels.

  • Three contemporary and very comfortable en-suite rooms located on the first floor. Wooden shutters, eye catching Chestnut headboards, luxury mattresses, French linen sheets, deep fluffy towels, ipod dock hairdryer, tea, freshly ground coffee, and hot chocolate.

  • On the ground floor there is a spacious open plan sitting and dining area which also doubles as a gallery space showcasing contemporary works by Welsh artists.
  • A locally sourced breakfast with vegetarian and vegan option is served in the open plan dining and living space on the ground floor
