About Bryn Y Garn

This delightful semi-detached cottage is the perfect rural retreat for a family of four who wants to be close to the action but also enjoys a slice of peaceful countryside. This cosy cottage features a beautiful log burner, a Rayburn and stone walls, showcasing the historic elements of this fantastic property. Despite being modest in size, this little gem offers ample comfortable sleeping and living space, with contemporary surprises such as the luxury family bathroom and fantastic galley kitchen to the rear of the property. There's more than enough outdoor space, too, with an outdoor seating area, a large fire pit area beyond and plenty of lawned space for stretching the legs. This is a true taste of North Pembrokeshire, inside and out!

With open-plan living space, cosy bedrooms, and plenty of opportunities to sit in the sea air, this pretty stone cottage offers a comfortable stay and an extraordinary experience that you won't want to miss. The mixture of contemporary amenities and traditional features meld perfectly together to form a homely feel from bygone times...but with mod cons!

Coming through the light and airy porch area, you're greeted with the option of sitting on comfortable sofas next to the open fireplace, the perfect spot to read a book or plan out your route for walks, or sitting at the traditional country dining table, all surrounded by the exposed stone that was used to build this superb property over 200 years ago.

The family bathroom has a distinctly different feel - it's surprisingly modern for a property of this age, with sleek tiled walls, a large walk-in shower, WC and wash hand basin with a heated towel rail. This is the perfect space for washing sand off after a day at the beach or soaking your bones after a hike to one of the amazing spots along this stretch of North Pembrokeshire coast path.

The kitchen is located at the rear of the property in what is a modern addition to the property and has all the amenities you would need from your stay away from home. The star of the show in this room is the fantastic Rayburn to complete the country kitchen feel, as well as a small breakfast table and a door leading out onto the outdoor patio dining area and separate fire pit beyond.

But if you're looking for a property that feels as if it's out of a classic countryside tale, then it's upstairs at this property that has that wow factor. As this was originally a one-and-a-half-story cottage, both the double room and the twin room opposite it are nestled under the exposed eaves, reminiscent of something from a Hardy novel. Wake up in the morning to birdsong and sea breeze, with light streaming through the dormer windows flooding these cosy bedrooms in golden sunlight. Who wouldn't want to wake up here?

With off-road parking in the private, gated side access, plenty of outside space, seating area, a fire pit, and safe access to the front of the property, this gorgeous cottage could be shared by two couples or a small family of 4. We're sure whoever stays here with you will be delighted by this quaint countryside holiday retreat.

The house was easy to find and well located to explore north Pembrokeshire. An old cottage with original features and charm (fireplace, beams, thick stone walls), we found the accommodation pleasant. The bed was very comfortable, the garden was lovely and there were nice touches such as fresh flowers and a pack of Welsh cakes left for us. However, we found the Rayburn ineffective (it took a long time to heat up. We ate out a lot as a result), and the cottage could have been a bit cleaner (there were some cobwebs and dusty spots).

Unfortunately the accommodation was very disappointing. It was damp, musty and greatly in need of redecorating and a deep clean. The damp smell could not be disguised, despite multiple air fresheners throughout. The ceilings in the twin room had unpleasant, peeling wallpaper, and the curtains were not wide enough to fit the width of the window. The bannister was dangerously low, which was not mentioned in the cottage description. Only two bath and two hand towels were provided for four guests. Two of the sofas were not accessible to sit on comfortably due to their positioning, leaving one small sofa for all four guests. The Rayburn in the kitchen did not reach a required cooking temperature, despite all instructions being followed. The wiring in the property was rather worrying as it seemed to consist of extension leads being plugged into other extension leads! The bathroom and the garden were fine, but that was not enough to prevent us cutting our holiday slightly short. We would not recommend this property, sadly.

Thank you for your comments which have been discussed with the owner. The property is a 200-year old stone cottage with exposed stonework and there have been no prior suggestions of damp. The sofas are modular and can be moved according to guest's requirements. Towels are kept on the towel rail with another set of towels in the drawers under the hand sink in the bathroom - the owner is sorry that you did not see them easily. The Rayburn temperature has been tested and a thermometer provided. Unfortunately, there is not an abundance of plug sockets but an extension with a longer lead will solve the issue that was highlighted. Thank you again for your comments.

About the Area

Bryn y Garn sits outside the old sea captain's village of Dinas. The stone houses are reminiscent of the bustling industrial fishing villages of old, although now the village is quiet and tranquil. There's a fantastic fish and chip shop, Pat's Plaice, as well as two convenience stores, a small garage, a children's play area, and a tennis court. Take your fish and chips up the small, bendy road between the chip shop and Kiel House to Dinas ViewPoint with 180 views from Fishguard to Newport. Also, keep an eye out for ancient standing stones - there are a few between this property and the centre of the village.

The beautiful, popular seaside village of Newport is only 3 miles away. Its beach, Newport Sands, is a lovely, long stretch of beach for swimming, making sandcastles, or taking the dog for a good, long walk. 

You're right on the northern edge of the Pembrokeshire Coast path, 186-miles of rare birds, seals, dolphins, shipwrecks, coastal flowers, and the most spectacular views in Wales. In the summery cove of Cwm-yr-Eglwys, you'll see the surprising remaining wall of the old church standing along above the small, sandy beach below - the rest of the church was swept out to sea during a storm hundreds of years ago. 

If you're feeling adventurous, the walk around Dinas Head, a mere 1.5 miles from Bryn y Garn, begins in the beautiful small cove of Pwllgwaelod - literally meaning Bottom Pool - takes you around the promontory piece of land that you can see for miles. The walk around the headland and up to Pen y Fan, the tallest cliffs in Pembrokeshire (not the mountain in South Wales), takes around 2.5 hours and ends up at the equally stunning cove at Cwm-yr-Eglwys.

Twenty minutes north is the ancient boat-building port of Cardigan with its old bridges and recently restored castle grounds and house. At nearby Gwbert, near Poppit Sands, boat trips leave this estuary to see the pod of dolphins that call the south Ceredigion coast their home. The beaches at Mwnt, Llangrannog, and Tresaith offer sheltered coves for swimming, and the towns of New Quay and Aberaeron and postcard-perfect fishing harbours with colourful houses, fish and chip shops, and ice cream stalls galore!

The St Davids Peninsula is famous for being home to Wales' patron Saint, David - the cathedral that was built in the city of St Davidsbears his name. Why not try out some watersports on the popular beaches of Newgale, Whitesands, and Abereiddy? This is where the newest watersports craze, coasteering was born - you can pay for guided experiences along this coast.

Head to South Pembrokeshire for a day out where the larger towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot offer the best of British days by the sea - fish and chips, boat trips to Caldey Island, and ice creams!

If you would like to leave your car behind, jump onto the local coastal shuttle bus service - and travel up or down the coast. You can leave and join the bus at will and services run the length of the coastal path.
