PEMBROKESHIRE COTTAGE, PRETTY, TASTEFULLY FURNISHED, CLOSE TO BEACH - SLEEPS 4

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Dinas Cross - Brynhenllan Cottage

Coastal path, beach, village shop and local pubs - perfect for walkers and dogs

Brynhenllan Cottage is a traditional stone Pembrokshire cottage situated in the Pembrokeshire National Park close to the sea and local beaches. The cottage is small but has a comfortable, spacious sitting room with an real open fire at one end and a wood burning stove at the other. A glazed extension to the rear opens onto a sunny courtyard, which has a chimenea and barbecue. The cottage overlooks the village green and is fronted by a pretty, lavender filled, cottage garden. The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished and very well equipped. Free wireless broadband, books and an extensive CD collection. Please note there is no TV or DVD player but the cottage is covered by a TV licence and the broad band is fast enough to stream TV, in theory.

With two bedrooms, one double and one walk through twin in. Tall people beware the bedrooms are in the eves of the cottage so headroom is limited.

The cottage is perfect for couples or a small family and is dog friendly.

In a superb location with local, family friendly beaches only minutes away and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path on your doorstep, with atmospheric local pubs and fine restaurants in nearby Newport.

Brynhenllan is a traditional welsh stone cottage by the sea furnished with every attention to detail. After years of looking for the perfect holiday cottage to rent that was close to the beach and in walking distance of a good pub and shop we gave up and bought our own. Brynhenllan Cottage is our much loved family holiday home and we would love to share it with you.

In the cottage we have endeavoured to include all the elements that we found it hard to find in rental properties, such as open log fire, proper mattresses, 100% cotton and linen bedding, soft fluffy white towels, beach towels, BBQ and outdoor fireplace, games, extensive music and free internet access. We keep the cottage well stocked with essentials so you don't have to bring the kitchen sink. You might find a cheaper cottage but you would be hard pressed to find a more comfortable and welcoming one.

The cottage would suit a couple or young family and we are happy to welcome well behaved dogs, in fact with its close access to the costal path and outdoor hose-pipe! Brynhenllan Cottage is a dog walkers paradise. Although we are dog friendly. If you are not a dog lover rest assured that we pride ourselves that the cottage is fresh and clean for each and every visitor.

We like to cook and although the kitchen is small it is a delight it is flooded with light and you can see the sea, just! It has everything you could need. We have recently installed an induction hob and a new ceramic sink.

The village of Dinas Cross and the hamlet of Brynhenllan are peaceful places and the only sound you will hear in the morning is the fishermen on their way down to the beach to check their lobster pots. It's worth mentioning that the lobster at the Old Sailors is as fresh as it gets.

The beaches in Wales are endless, varied and relatively empty. North Pembrokshire is a world away from the busy touristy areas in the south with its spectacular craggy shore overlooked by the Preseli Hills it is a beautiful area steeped in history and with a vibrant local rural economy. Farmers markets abound and there are artists and craft makers everywhere.

The Cottage is equally lovely in every season, in-fact the best weather is often to be had in spring and autumn. As well as the nearby beaches and fabulous walking on the Pembrokshire National Park costal path on your doorstep there is local riding stable close by. My top tip is to take a welsh pony for a trek up Dinas Mountain (not really a mountain more a big hill) let the horse take the strain and enjoy the view. It is an experience that will stay with you, I promise. We liked it so much we bought the horse! So if you see Gwennol at Havard Stables say hello and that we will see her soon.

We are very grateful for all the lovely reviews we get, if you have time to read them they will give you a flavour of what it is like to stay at Brynhenllan cottage.

I look forward to hearing from you and we hope to welcome you in 2012 to our special place.

We are are a family of three, plus a cat, who thinks she is a dog, and a pony, who lives in Pembrokeshire. We live in West London and have done since we left university, many years ago! Both Duncan and I grew up in rural Herefordshire, but our careers tie us to the city and Brynhenllan Cottage is our escape!

Sally Wigney purchased this cottage in 2006

We fell in love with the cottage after renting the house opposite and spending the week looking at it with a for sale sign outside. We thought the location was the best we had ever rented a holiday cottage in - and believe me we had rented a few! It was a mad and spontaneous leap of faith at the end of a weeks holiday but one we have not regretted for a single minute.

Off season is the time I prefer at the cottage. The weather is often calmer than in summer months and the countryside is just as beautiful, actually more beautiful. In the winter the colours of the bracken, gorse and heather come alive. But don’t be fooled by the blue blue sea, its icy cold! As the summer fades the locals claim their place back from the tourists and the whole place settles down and relaxes. When the dark winter days days are behind us the welsh daffodils strewn liberally across the countryside are a joy and spring lambs bouncing through the fields bring the whole place back to life.

Long walks along the cost path, beaches all to yourself and a cosy cottage to come back too.

This cottage is as gorgeous as it looks on the photo's. Every little detail from the bedding to the cutlery is high quality. The location is superb for the beach and nearby local attractions. I would definately recommend this rental to anyone.

A wonderful place to stay to get away from it all!

We stayed at the cottage for a week in March 2013 and loved it so much we came back for another visit in June. It really is the perfect place to stay to get away from it all, and it's a great base from which to walk the spectacular Pembrokeshire coastal path, relax on a beautiful beach or eat some great seafood at one of the local pubs.

The cottage is clean and well equipped, the beds are comfy, and it's the perfect size for a couple or a family with small children. The main bedroom is accessed off the twin room though, so perhaps not so suitable for a family with older children if they (or you) might want a little more privacy.

Really can't rate the cottage highly enough, and can't wait to go back!!

One of our favorite holiday rentals so far!

We spent a wonderful week in Pembrokeshire and immensely enjoyed our stay at Brynhenllan Cottage!
The house is so thoughtfully equipped and beautifully decorated that we felt at home from the first minute. We loved the fact that the cottage doesn't have a TV, but good WIFI connection. A special bonus is that you can switch on the heating when necessary!
We took some really nice walks at the beaches, along the Coast Path (some outstanding views!) and in the nearby hills and visited some towns (St. Davids, to name but one!) and lovely gardens.
That one week was ways too short for all we would have loved to do and see and we definitely hope to come back soon!

A fantastic 'get away from it all' cottage

This was a much needed short break from hectic day jobs and the cottage delivered on every aspect. It was beautifully decorated with lots of personal and thoughtful touches that really made a difference. It was sparklingly clean and the fire made for many cosy evenings reading/playing scrabble!

We actually cooked ourselves every night with meat/fish bought locally. The kitchen is very well stocked with pans/ utensils etc so we did not need any of the extras we brought.

The surrounding coastline is breathtaking and perfect for blowing away those cobwebs. We would highly recommend hiking around Dinas Head itself. We also walked around the coast by St David's which was magnificent.

We also took a trip to the wonderful Melin Tregwynt woollen mill (and could not resist coming back with some rather lovely items).

All in all we cannot speak highly enough of this cottage and would love to stay again.

Brynhenllan Cottage is a cottage by the sea with beaches in walking distance. Pwllgwaelod beach is in easy reach, a five minute walk down the hill. There is a small car park adjacent to the beach for those who can't face the walk back up! There is a lovely circular walk around Dinas Head and a pub-restaurant on the beach (local lobster). Picturesque Cwm yr Eglwys with its sand and shingle beach overlooked by the remains of 12th century St Brynach’s Church is within walking distance. Back inland there is an atmospheric pub and an excellent shop in Dinas Cross.

Brynhenllan cottage is in easy reach of Newport beaches. Newport is a bustling small seaside town, – offering golf, two dog friendly sandy beaches, great for watersports and beach games. There are several exceptional restaurants here, pubs, craft shops and a good butchers.

Fishguard, 3 miles away, the site of the Last Invasion of Britain in 1797, is a small market town with a selection of individual shops and award winning butchers/fishmongers.

Further afield Pembrokeshire is littered with pre-historic sites, like Pentre Ifan medieval castles such as Pembroke Castle and Picton Castle and historic houses such at Scolton Manor
