Unique accommodation in a lovely setting, close to the coastal path and within easy walking distance from two lovely coves. Perfect for dogs, excellent walks from the door and lots of lovely coves in each direction. Delicious pop up pasta van on the site of the boat club in nearby Newport, highly recommended, especially the focaccia. Peaceful garden which gets the afternoon sun, very relaxing after those long walks!

We had a super week at this delightful secluded hideaway. Everything we needed, fabulous walks etc. Please note nearest shop, is Keil House in Dinas Cross or petrol station. PUB The Old Sailor, ( 10 mins flat sheltered walk at Pwllgwelod beach), is open 11am to 5 pm on Tuesdays to Sundays. Thoroughly recommend this hideaway for a holiday ??

Area has wonderful walks immediately from the cabin. The nearby walkable Newport has a great assortment of eating establishments, ( Dog Friendly)

We loved our stay here! Total peace, yet lots of adventure on your doorstep. The lovely beach was a 3 minute walk from log cabin gate to feet on the sand (I timed it!) - this beach was our favourite, lots of rocks to climb, crabbing, kayaks and boats to rent, and dog friendly too. The log cabin had everything we needed and the beds were comfy. There is no WiFi in the log cabin as it’s a remote location, but I had great signal for EE, but o2 had none - just a pre warning! Lovely welcome hamper when we arrived with wine, Welsh cakes and Welsh tea, well needed after a long drive! The location of the cabin is very well hidden and took us a while to find, but luckily I had read another review with directions - walk out the carpark the way you drove in, turn immediately right and walk up the narrow road until you come to a house with two black garage doors on the ground floor. To the right of the house is a narrow public footpath - walk down this pathway until you reach the gate straight ahead of you. The wheelbarrow for belongings is provided and well needed - quite a few trips to and from the car! As a bonus, the kitchen was upgraded when we arrived, nothing like the photos! We loved the cabin, the log burner, and the cosy evenings and gorgeous mornings listening to the birds. Well worth a stay, lovely locals and a beautiful location for a peaceful getaway. We took two children and two dogs and they were thoroughly entertained all week! We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful lodge in quiet secluded forest close to stunning little beach and costal views. Just perfect for a truly relaxing break with cosy log burner and mod cons too

Lovely isolated cabin in one of the most beautiful areas of Wales.

We had a truly relaxing stay at Y Brenllan. The log cabin is hidden away from the outside world as you enter a peaceful, magical forest glade with lovely views m, which continue from the log cabin. The log fire makes the place so cosy and the furniture is comfortable and stylish. Bluebells were flowering. The snug catches the afternoon and evening sun. Two beaches lie within easy walking distance. If you are planning to walk around the headland (Dinas Head) this can take you up to 4 hours (with rests) depending on your walking ability. The sign states it can take 1 hour! Also, if you are squeamish about heights, you might find some of the coastal paths a bit narrow!!! ON ARRIVAL at the hamlet of Cwm yr Eglwys we suggest you leave the car in the carpark in the space provided for “log cabin’ and get your bearings by walking. Turn immediately right out of the car park and walk to the first house on your right (white) turn right down a narrow path (this is found between the white house and Cegroes and walk 100 yards to the entrance gate of Y Brenllan. We had a special time and can’t wait to go back again!!! Deborah and David, May 2021.
Mrs Ayres April 2021
Loved the cabin, loved the peace, loved the wildlife, loved just hearing birdsong and sheep bleating! Loved walking on the coast path, loved the little cove. It was an incredibly restorative break for us.

a tranquil private escape. Walking distance between two lovely beaches means you can choose between a sunset or a sunrise.
