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.

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.
Very high quality.
A luxurious home from home. Everything you could want and more.
Fantastic House...One of best holiday homes we have stayed in .. Gorgeous part of the world.
Fantastic house and didn’t want to leave. We spent a fortnight here and could have stayed even longer!! In fact my husband didn’t want to come home!
This is a very well equipped property with everything you could possibly need. Kitchen is fabulous and wish I could take it home ! Heidi great at replying to emails with handy advice prior to holiday and her dad who lives next door was a star who gave us lots of advice re places to go to entertain the kids.
With 2 teenage children not sure what to expect as never been to this part of the world before. But it was amazing. Scenery is gorgeous and such a lovely laid back pace of life. Coastal walks are wonderful and vary in length and difficulty so something for everyone.
We preferred the quieter beach at Abereiddy next to blue laggoon and also the beach in between Porthgain and this beach ( very secluded but lots of steps down )
Porthgain is very picturesque and we enjoyed coffee and lunch there after our walks in the Sloop Inn.
St David’s is not far by car and a lovely place to just chill and relax in. Cathedral Is definitely worth a visit.
We went on the boat trip to Ramsay Island on our last day and it was the kids highlight ( fast speed boat!)
Definitely will be returning.
Thanks for a fabulous house Heidi .
Thank you so much for your very kind review; it's always a great feeling to know guests have enjoyed their stay. I know you had an extremely long journey and our boys are growing up fast so I know it's not always easy to please teens. Hope you book again as you are always welcome! Thanks again!
