Brynteg - Trefin - St. Davids
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
A warm welcome awaits you at Brynteg, a charming 19th century West Wales Self Catering Holiday cottage set within the pretty village of Trefin, on the coast road, halfway between the Cathedral City of St. Davids and Fishguard.
The cottage is welcoming and very well cared for and has recently achieved a Visit Wales 4 Star grading.
It consists of : Ground Floor; Lounge, Dining Room, Kitchen, Utility area and Bathroom. Upstairs there are three bedrooms; one double room with cot, one twin room and one box bedroom with 2' 6" wide single bed more suited to a minor. The cottage is double glazed and heated throughout by Economy 7 electric storage heaters. Brynteg has a large South facing and enclosed lawned garden.
The road opposite the cottage leads directly onto the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged clifftops and sheltered coves to wide open beaches and winding estuaries.
The Coast Path walking in either direction is superb. This is the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park at its best. Walk west to Porthgain, The Blue Lagoon and Abereiddi. Walk east to Abercastle, Aber Mawr, Pwll Deri and Strumble Head. During the spring and early summer the path displays an array of wild coastal flowers, and there is a wealth of bird life. Colonies of seabirds nest along the cliffs, and a huge variety of European seabirds are supported by the uninhabited offshore islands that act as bird sanctuaries, such as Skomer, Skokholm and Ramsey Island. Seals, porpoises and dolphins can often be spotted.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
North-West Pembrokeshire is not a part of the world that changes easily. The sea, the rocks, and the weather have moulded it, men have altered little. The cattle, the sheep, the white washed cottages, the numerous tiny non-conformist chapels, the stone farmsteads are part of an immemorial landscape.
The North western part of the county, the St. Davids Peninsular has an exceptional coastline – rugged in winter but soft and gentle in spring and summer. It is a sailor's and fisherman's coast, indented with small coves and harbours, quiet and sparsely populated. The people are bi-lingual with a quiet old fashioned courtesy, and they are not sorry that the mainstream of modern development has passed them by. This is Celtic Pembrokeshire where Welsh is still in natural everyday use.
What has Pembrokeshire to offer?
With Trefin as a centre, you can drive from one end of the county to the other in an hour or so. The scenery varies from wild and rugged grandeur to peaceful pastures. There are miles of superbly unspoilt cliffs with a coastal path in the National Park, which in fact takes in most of the county.
There are islands:- Skomer, Skokholm, Ramsey and many more and mountains; the Preselies, with delightful drives through lovely moorlands and mountain pastures with their wild ponies, and mountain sheep and still an occasional herd of Welsh Black Cattle. There are beaches and rivers. These are background to enjoyment. You can drive leisurely or you can walk, or ride or partake in numerous coastal activities, or just sit back and relax.
In Spring and Summer, the wild flowers pattern and carpet the hedges, cliffs and seashore, and the variety of wildlife is a naturalists dream. There are a number of bird sanctuaries and the sea birds of Skomer and Skokholm are internationally celebrated. Buzzards, Kestrals, Sparrow Hawks and Herons can usually be seen without great difficulty. Badgers and foxes abound.
For those whose interest lies in rural crafts, there are small Welsh woollen mills still working in the county that can be visited and where the old machinery is still in use, or small potteries and carpenter's workshops where visitors are welcome.
For the amateur archaeologist there is a splendid richness of ancient monuments. The finest burial chambers are in the north of the county, Pentre Ifan near Newport and Carreg Samson at Longhouse near Abercastle to name only two. Most churches in the north have at least one cross inscribed in Ogam, the sign language of the early Celts. St David's, Britain's smallest city has one of the country's most beautiful cathedrals, and a splendid ruined Bishop's Palace. There are also more old castles than in any other county in the British Isles.
Good sea fishing can be had with the local fishermen from the tiny harbours of Abercastle, Porthgain and Solva.
Trefin is a small village. The bay Aberfelin is within eight minutes walk from Brynteg (leave cottage and turn left). It is rugged and typical of the north Pembrokeshire coast, but there are many sandy beaches within easy reach of Trefin. The village has an inn, tea rooms and craft centre. Trefin is situated on the coast road between St David's and Fishguard. This road links the beaches of Whitesands, Abereiddy, Traethllwyn, Porthgain, Aberfelin, Abercastle, Abermawr and Aberbach. Trefin is a place for those who are desirous of escaping from the rush and roar of city life to perfect peace, quietness and tranquillity. It is for those people who wish to be away from the everlasting sound of passing traffic, who wish nothing more than to relax, sunbathe on any choice of beaches, swim, walk the cliff top paths, watch the endless number of birds, spot seals, identify the countless wild flowers, or fish from the tiny walled harbour of Porthgain.

"A cosy house in a beautiful environment"
We stayed in this house with 5 students of 20/21 years old, who wanted to escape the business of London for the weekend. The house is really cosy and has everything you need for your stay. The environment is beautiful, less than 5 minutes from the beach, and the people are really friendly. There is a lot to see and to do in the area for all ages. We for example did coasteering session, but also walking with these views never gets bored.
We really enjoyed our stay and we would love to come back some time!
Many thanks for your review, so pleased that you all enjoyed your short break in Brynteg Holiday Cottage. We look forward to you returning sometime in the future.

"A lovely place to stay."
We enjoyed our week at Brynteg in the vilage of Trefin. The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and guests are thoughtfully provided for. As senior citizens we appreciated how quiet and friendly the village was, even at the height of the holiday season. On some evenings we'd walk down to the nearby cove to watch the sun sink below the ocean horizon. The coastal walks from the cottage are superb and dramatic and take you to picturesque villages and harbours. Fine beaches can be found a short drive away. We'd have loved to stay longer and hope to be back.
Thank-you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday in Trefin. My wife and I also have enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets from Aberfelin Cove.

"Home from Home, everything you need"
Stayed at this lovely cottage over the May Bank Holiday , very comfortable, very cosy. The owners have made sure that everything you could need for a home from home is here, the house is so well equipped that most of the things you usually take for self catering were not needed from little things like salt and pepper to tea towells and toilet rolls, and every kind of cleaning product. Even though it was May the heating was on so it was lovely and warm with the beds all made up and a complimentary selection of teas and coffee and a bottle of Elderflower Spritz to welcome us. The garden is a real suntrap with tables and chairs and sunloungers, but is also very private with a lovely view across the valley.The bedrooms are very pretty and the beds are comfortable, there are even hairdryersThe homely . For those with little ones there is a cot, highchair, stair guards and fire guards- very child friendly.The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook and eat- even picnic wear,and the bathroom has a great shower and underfloor heating- real luxury!
The cottage is in a little village right on the coastal path and the local bus for walkers goes right past the front door, the owners have left lots of information, ordinance survey walking maps and bus timetables and gave me a list of recommendations for lovely walks and good local pubs.
Thank-you for your review, glad you found Brynteg had all the amenities to make your stay in Pembrokeshire that much more enjoyable.
