We were given a lovely welcome by the owners and a delicious bara brith ... the beds were so comfy, a splendid base for our holiday. West Wales is so picturesque with plenty of lovely beaches and places to visit.Mrs Ruth Clarke - 17th September 2018

The property itself was excellent in every respect. The personal welcome was delightful.J Bowmer - 28th May 2018
Ael y Bryn was the perfect holiday home for our family of 5. We had a lovely welcome from the owners, including a delicious cake and some milk. The house is a great combination of character and home comforts. Lovely garden with seating area and nice views to the surrounding countryside. Perfect quiet location but literally within a few minutes walk of gorgeous Newport, with its fantastic shops, cafes and restaurants - and charming toy museum. All that you need for the week. Lots of lovely walks direct from the house and a fantastic beach. Couldn't wish for more. We will be back.Elizabeth Tough - 16th April 2018
Everything was perfect, thank you Alun & Eileen. Great place and exactly what we were looking for! Would highly recommend. Very professional and highly recommended for the excellent customer service experienced. Thank you :) Paul from Aberdare - 1st January 2018
Lovely welcome by the owners who made you feel at home as soon as you stepped in through the door. The house was located near numerous traditional shops not far from a beautiful scenic sandy beach. Eating out. We as a family had a lovely Sunday lunch in the Royal Oak which was a five minute walk from the cottage. Dyfed Shire Horse Farm well worth a visit also Manor Park Wildlife park.Meirion and Louise - 28th August 2017
The house is well furnished and homely. It is in a very convenient position for the local shops, pub, restaurants and walks. It has a good outside area. It was ideal for a holiday with children. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the future.
We enjoyed Cilgeren Castle, Castle Henlys and the Nevern Show. Parrog and the beach were good places to go. We enjoyed a meal at Tavern Sinc in Rosebush.David from Swansea - 15th August 2017
Excellent property. It was roomy and comfortable and in a great location, close to centre of village but extremely quiet.
Recommends: Walk the coast paths but also fantastic mountain walks with spectacular views.Family from South Yorkshire - 9th July 2017
Family Easter holiday. Very relaxing and made good use of the cottage in terms of facilities there and location. Wifi at the cottage was good and is essential as no mobile signal in Newport. Owner is lovely and cottage is well equipped and fantastic.
Tips: Visit the Canteen restaurant in Newport; it's fantastic! Also a walk to Newport Beach via the iron bridge and golf course is lovely. Golf course looks great although didn't get a chance to play.Phillip from Bristol - 23rd April 2017
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.Family from Victoria, Canada - 30th June 2016
Beautiful cottage in lovely village, real home from home. Leave the car and get out walking to explore the lovely village, beach and countryside.Neil Edmunds from Neath - 30th April 2016
