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.
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.
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.
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.
Had a lovely stay. Cottage very clean and cosy. All other improvements lovely.
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.
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
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.
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
I enjoyed playing on the beach
The cottage is lovely and cosy and with everything you'd ever need.
