Caro and her family care about many things: music, theatre, literature, and the arts in general, cooking, Pembrokeshire and its people and a positive attitude to life.
The association with Pembrokeshire began in 1969 when the Flynns fell in love with the place and people, and bought and renovated an old mill cottage near Croesgoch. Over the years the family spent all holidays here and Eric and the boys all played cricket for Llanrhian at the little cricket ground just down the road from Bryn-y-Môr.
Caro’s family also spent family holidays here and loved the area. In 1998 the Flynns acquired a known and loved Georgian mansion near Porthgain, overlooking the Irish sea. The house was lovingly restored and was run as a Country House B&B and pottery. Eric died in 2002, Caro ran Trevaccoon for the next 6 years with the help of staff, while still managing to spend a few hours a day in the studio.
It’s a close and incredibly generous and supportive community. They are fiercely protective of their culture, their language and the natural beauty in which they live. They have every right to be so.
Come with your eyes, your mind and your hearts open and you will find the warmest of welcomes. You’ll leave feeling recharged physically as well as spiritually and determined to return.
