A wonderful week, did a lot in a week, weather amazing. So relaxing in the cottage, our 2nd visit in the area. Will be back

Nora & Jo

Beautiful weather & Beautiful place! The house was cosy and welcoming as usual - Thank you!

Linda & Neil

Our 6th holiday here in Bryn Melin - this time (by mistake) 2 weeks instead of just one! Mistakes & unintended happenings often become a blessing and this was no exception! It was so good to have a middle weekend when some of our family, including 3 grandchildren, were able to join us near by. Now there are another 5 converts to the joys of Abercastle and North Pembrokeshire - especially surfing at Whitesands bay and swimming with a seal at Traeth Llyfn! We continue to be amazed that there's so much exciting variety & new discoveries each time. Diolch for another wonderful time!


This is my second visit to Bryn Melin, the first one being over 20 years ago! It is every bit as lovely as I remembered it. I've stayed in quite a few cottages over the years, but this is possibly the best of the lot. So sung, cosy and welcoming. Really well equipped and in a beautiful location. Who could ask for more, Thank you!!

Nora & Jo

Lovely stay, very cosy, clean and welcoming. Thank you!

Tessa & John

We had the most wonderful stay - Thank you so much. We loved walking up on the cliffs and returning to sit by the toasty woodburner. It could not have been more perfect. Thank you again

Gwyn, Sally, Isabel & Freddie

Thank you for another wonderful stay at Bryn Melin. We look forward to returning again very soon. The cottage has been very warm and cosy during this cold snap and so clean as usual. We've enjoyed lots of lovely walks and have seen lots of seals and seal pups. Thank you for a wonderful stay, see you soon

Lynne and Mike

Our first stay in Bryn Melin was in March 2009, we loved it then and have finally returned for a short winter break. Even more impressed with the cottage this time - lovely renovations - very cosy and clean as before - made friends with a little robin down at the harbour - he flew into the car and sat on Mike's knee. Spotted a couple of seals during a lovely coastal walk to Trefin. Hope to be back early next year.

Gwyn, Sally, Isabel and Freddie

We have been visiting Abercastle for the last 10 years staying in many different cottages, but Bryn Melin is by far the cleanest. Most cosy and comfortable cottage we have ever stayed in - Thank you. We will definately be back and shall be recommending the cottage to our family and friends. Sharon the caretaker was so helpful and friendly when we spoke to her prior to our arrival. We have had a wonderful few days despite the weather not being great. We have enjoyed some lovely walks in between the downpours. Had a fab meal at the Sloop in Porthgain visited St Davids and had lots of fun playing on the beaches. Thank you once again we look forward to returning again very soon.

Laura and Robin Draycott

A really lovely stay. The cottage is super. Really cosy with the stove lit, and very clean and well equipped. We had a fantastic relaxing time, visiting beaches, villages and castles, and eating lunch in the huge selection of fantastic country pubs.

Andy and Angie Brown

Our regular visit a week later this year but what a pleasant surprise. The excellent cottage is now even better and warmer, and as usual very clean and welcoming. Thank you Sharon. The weather was mixed from storms to mild. Saw some seals at Abermawr and had a very relaxing time. We still prefer the Farmers Arms to The Ship Inn. Back next year, god willing for our 7th time.

Jo and Nora

Had a lovely stay. Cottage very clean and cosy. All other improvements lovely.

Andy and Angie

Here we are again. This must be our 5th or 6th visit to this cottage at this time of year. The cottage is as always warm dry and clean. The countryside good, the coastal towns, villages,and walks excellent. We saw a mother seal feeding her pup. A peaceful beach in Gods country.

Ron and Hazel

First time here. We had a really relaxing week - lovely and quiet. Cottage is one of the best quipped we've ever stayed in. An absolute must is visiting Something Cooking in Letterston - without doubt the best fish and chips around

Michelle, Bob, Lauren and Mia

Enjoyable stay - beautiful spot. A great place to access other areas. We really enjoyed out boat trip round Skomer and an afternoon on Marloes beach - not to be missed - one of the most stunning beaches I have ever seen.

Stu, Flynn and Frank

In over 20 yers of visiting the Pembroke coast surfing, this has to be the most memorable. At last a chance to show my young family the wonders of one of the great wonders of the world (of whch I have seen a lot of) this ranks as one of the greatest. This thrown in with my 40th makes for a very happy gown up teenager from the moment we entered Bryn Melin our 2 yr old never stopped beaming. I never stopped breating deep breaths of comtemptment and Fran was just in seventh heaven, Dioch Bryn Meln we will return.


It is a great cottage in a perfect location. I love the feel inside and many thanks for having so many helpful books and maps


The brochure does not do justice to the wonderful setting for this cottage. It is great to be so close to the sea. Our 2 year old loved the beach here.


This cottage is cosy and well equipped. We love being able to see the sea from the windows and even sit outside at the picnic table.


The cottage is really nice and cosy...We can't wait to come back
