|The cottage was perfect. On meeting the wonderful owners, we felt we were no longer just booking a cottage, but were treated like guests in their lovely home. Pembrokeshire itself is amazing with so many places to see and things to do, but returning to Ael y Bryn was for us the highlight of everyday. Best of Wales was very helpful with all our arrangements.|

|It was perfect. Lovely cottage with thoughtful owners who had provided everything you could need for your stay - including cake! Walking in the area of Newport was really good and we particularly enjoyed the coast path around Dinas Head. A trip to St Davids and Solva was well worth while.|
|Jill and Mick from Nottingham, Sep 2016
|We enjoyed the spacious kitchen and dining area. We felt very much at home, so much better than a hotel. The Bara Brith was very much appreciated. Our brother loved walking to the castle early each morning. The Castle Inn Pub provided excellent food with an extensive menu and friendly hospitality.|
