Please be advised that the main photograph of the property was taken in the Summer.

The origin of the name Maenclochog is unclear. It appears to be made up of two Welsh words, maen ( stone ) and clochog ( bells ). A local tale reports that there were stones near Fynnon Fair, ( Mary's Well ), to the south of the village, which rang like bells when struck, but these were blown to bits by treasure-hunters, under the mistaken belief that they concealed a golden treasure. This may represent nothing more than folk etymology. An alternative proposal is that the second part of the name comes from the Irish word, clochog, meaning a craggy place. This theory is supported by the fact that there was Irish migration to Pembrokeshire in the early Middle Ages, as attested to by the Ogham stones found in the locality and elsewhere, and certainly the name suits the topography of the area.

The village has a thriving community and has a local committee that talks about what is important to the village. There is a general store and two petrol stations with an MOT service. Located in the center of the village is St.Marys church, the park and the green on a small road island. In the village there are many businesses that include two electrical wholesalers and an art gallery. There is a school and a carpenters situated about 50 meters North-West from the church. Opposite the green is the local pub.
