About Heidi and Bruce
We live in England with our 2 children and our two cats. We both work, but spend most of our holidays at our home in Trefin, enjoying the spectacular beaches and coastal walks that are right on our doorstep. In fact Heidi was brought up in Trefin, where her parents still live and we have many friends in the village. So it really feels like home when we are there.
Heidi and Bruce purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Heidi and Bruce chose Llanrhian
We chose the property with a view to moving into the village some time in the future, so we have put our heart and soul into the place. Heidi felt privileged growing up in Trefin, surrounded by endless coastline within walking distance, as well as numerous coves and bays, she could walk or cycle to everyday. Our kids can't get enough of the place. Even in the height of summer, it is easy to find secluded beaches and walks all to yourself. There is a staggering amount and variety of activities to enjoy in Pembrokeshire, whether you have children, are into arts and crafts, history and archaeology, boating, fishing, extreme sports, theme parks, wildlife and marine life, or simply want to get away from it all to relax in peace and quiet.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our house is recently decorated and everything, including floors, windows, kitchen and bathrooms, is brand new. It is a very spacious property with oak flooring or tiles, high ceilings and underfloor heating downstairs. Other features such as the log burner, flat screen TV, american sized fridge freezer, large induction hob stove, separate utility, chandeliers, hotel standard bathrooms and generously sized beds, plus balcony off dining room french doors, contribute to the luxury feel. The house was also decorated with children's safety in mind. Apart from stair gates, and optional fire guard and plug covers, the spacious garden is fully enclosed and the balcony decking leading onto the lawn is as non slip as possible.

June 2019 Quiet & Relaxing week
House was spacious and well furnished / maintained. Equipment was of a high standard throughout with large fridge, freezer, cooker and supported by dishwasher, washing machine & dryer. Large modern TV with elements of Sky available at no extra charge. Good water pressure and always hot water available. House and village were very quiet - just what we wanted. No traffic or other external noise. Very close to coast path with hour walk to next village that had a restaurant. Local Spar outside village about 5 mins drive is well stocked with basics, but not much in the way of lactose or gluten free products, for which a journey to Haverfordwest was required (if arriving from the East you can buy on the way through). Nice long views over farmland from master bedroom and completely dark at night. When wind blows however there is a small gap that whistles. Don't usually return to a holiday rental but if I wanted another quiet week would definitely go back here.
We had a really quiet relaxing break. House conveniently located for hiking on the coast path. Owners information very helpful.
A home away from home
This property was well equipped, clean, comfortable, warm and a pleasure to stay in. It is close to the pub and cafe and is a great starting point for walks around the area. It is very near to Wales’ smallest city - St David’s - which is a charming and historic place to visit and the village of Solva was very interesting too. All our day trips were enhanced by the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. We had a truly wonderful stay.
Lovely cottage. Well furnished, comfortable and ideally located to walk St. Davids head coast.
Lovely home for a family stay
The house is ideal for a family with young children. The house has been nicely done - everything we could want was there and it's a good base to explore the beaches, costal walls and at David's.
Really well equipped cottage, beautifully kitted out to high standard.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage has been tastefully renovated to a high standard and has been well thought out and equipped to cater for families including toddlers/babies. Trefyn is perfectly situated to make access to close by places of interest including St David’s, Silva, Porth Gain, the Blue Lagoon at Aberreiddy, the coast path and a number of beautiful beaches. I would highly recommend this cottage as a great place to stay for a family holiday.
