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.

                                                          Lovely house and great base to explore Wales

                                                          Samantha D.

                                                          We stayed at this house during October half term with our 2 children (5 & 7yrs). The property has a lovely, homely feel - it's really clean and well looked after with a well equipped kitchen, enclosed rear garden which was great for the children and nice bathrooms and bedrooms. We felt very at home there and the children loved it. It is located near the cost in the village of Trefin - you can walk to the coastal path from the property (about 20 mins to the cliff path), and the village itself has a lovely café which is family friendly and serves great food, plus there is a pub about 1 min walk from the house! We explored the Pembrokeshire area and found it very easy to access a number of activities which were great for the children - Folly Farm, Blue Lagoon Water Park, beaches and walks, etc. A great family-friendly property!

                                                          Tanellan, Trefin

                                                          Robin H.

                                                          This is one of the best-appointed and most comfortable cottages we have stayed in over more than 10 years. From outside the front it looks rather unremarkable, but once through the door we were amazed and impressed by the spaciousness of every room, the massive amount of storage space, particularly in both the kitchen and the bedrooms. The layout and fittings in the kitchen, with the huge fridge and the island work-area, were to die for. Unfortunately the weather, which was fine for coast-path walking, was not sunny or warm enough for us to enjoy the garden, though we did manage evening drinks on the outside decking a couple of times. Altogether a memorable stay.

                                                          The only hitch was that neither the owners nor the agents had given us the code for the key-box by the front door, which nonplussed us a bit on arrival, until the parent of one of the owners, who lives next door, spotted our difficulty and gave us the code!

                                                          Beautiful home in a quiet corner of Pembrokeshire

                                                          Jen d.

                                                          A beautiful home, immaculately clean and everything one could want. Very comfortable and like one's own home rather than a typical "holiday let". We'd definitely recommend it. The surrounding area is beautiful; St David's a gem and Whitesands beach a delight.

                                                          Lovely spacious well equipped house.

                                                          Penelope M.

                                                          We had a lovely stay in this lovely house. The log burner came in very handy on a wet day. The cottage was very homely and well equipped. The village is quiet with good coastal walks. The pub serves good food.

                                                          Amazing family home away from home

                                                          Gina C.

                                                          We live in a busy city.....so when we are on holiday we like to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all. This lovely home and surrounding area provided that in buckets. With 2 children to entertain there was lots for us to do within 30-40 minutes drive. We enjoyed the lovely white sands beach with its body boarding and surfing. We went to Oakwood theme park and blue lagoon water complex. As a family we would highly recommend this fantastic holiday home. We dined at the Shed and if you are a fish lover we would highly recommend this too. For the first time in many years when holidaying in England we didn't want to leave......many thanks.

                                                          Fantastic Trefin Cottage with easy access to the Pembrokeshire Coast.

                                                          Peter H.

                                                          The cottage is spacious, warm and well appointed. It accommodated 5 adults with ease. There are 2 bathrooms and an additional downstairs cloakroom. All areas were spotlessly clean. Great location in the village with parking. Locals very friendly.
