Location and veranda good, although rather weather dependent. Sadly the whole village is full of holiday cottages. Sleeping arrangements quite tight. Don’t think it would be suitable for most families as garden unsafe for small children and lack of wifi and local amenities would be off putting for older children/teenagers.

We were glad to welcome you back - it is in such a lovely spot tucked away in a woodland glade. We are sorry if the sleeping arrangements didn't work for you this time around and hope that you were able to enjoy the cosy nature that the cabin offers. We do ask families to take care with small children in the garden due to the nearby marsh but it is a wonderful treat for botanist and bird watchers alike! We hope to welcome you to another Classic Cottage in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

This truly is a magical holiday home. You have beautiful views and privacy in a warm cosy environment. Park car outside path that leads to cottage to offload luggage then remove to parking slot a few minutes away. Collect wheelbarrow from cottage - great help. Write door pass code on a note pad as you cannot revisit site when at Y Berllan as there is no WiFi.
Love the beautiful private wood glade and the sparkling clean, warm lodge. We have stayed twice now. Enjoy. Temple Bar Cafe on left out of Newport. Organic meals, warm welcome, woid burner. Organic produce for sale. Jenny, Proprietor is lovely Open Sat and Sundays.

Great location with walks from the door in a very peaceful setting. Close to Newport which has some brilliant eateries (try PWNC cafe, The Canteen, Tides, Llys Meddyg). We loved the Dinas walk!
Miss Woodcock October 2022
Beautiful log cabin. Very spacious. All mod cons supplied. Just to advise O2 phone customers. There is no signal on O2 ( even though it states on the website at its excellent ) but my partner is with EE and was fine. Ideal base location to visit local coves and beaches. Booking was minimum of 1 week but kept busy daily with excursions and chilling with a good book on the 2 rainy days. Dogs loved it!! Prosecco and Welsh cakes a nice touch
Mrs Horncastle September 2022
We wanted a quiet holiday with our dogs to get away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and this didn’t disappoint. Perfectly secluded and beautiful location would highly recommend.
Mr Etherington July 2022
If you are after a quiet peaceful holiday close to the beach and have a keen interest in wildlife whilst staying in a comfortable wooden cabin. Then this is the holiday for you.
If you need shops and pubs close by in easy walking distance then best avoid.
However this property is its charm in the fact it is a five minute drive to the nearest shop making the cabin peaceful and relaxing.
Miss Swatland June 2022
Absolutely fabulous, no WiFi no internet, just nature, we had a wonderful week, the beach was easy walking distance and dog friendly, the bats in the evening were stunning, I wish I owned this cabin, will definitely be returning. The cabin has a marsh by it so we took citronella candles and they kept the mosquitos at bay nicely. Thanks for a beautiful location.
Mr Christianson June 2022
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!
Mrs Richardson June 2022
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 ??
Mr Smallbone April 2022
Area has wonderful walks immediately from the cabin. The nearby walkable Newport has a great assortment of eating establishments, ( Dog Friendly)
Mrs Roberts April 2022
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
Mr Pyne September 2021
Great location, couldn’t have been better places for coastal path. Lovely cabin, comfortable & private. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Wright September 2021
Idyllic location. We had a perfect retreat reading, walking and swimming.
Mrs Millar July 2021
Really enjoyed our stay, very relaxing and lovely to be among the trees. We hope to return!
Mrs Rogers June 2021
Such a lovely hideaway, so peaceful and relaxing. Great location for beaches and walking.
Mr James May 2021
Lovely isolated cabin in one of the most beautiful areas of Wales.
Mrs Pike May 2021
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.
Mrs Thom April 2021
a tranquil private escape. Walking distance between two lovely beaches means you can choose between a sunset or a sunrise.

We are so happy to read that you had a tranquil escape, sometimes some peace and quiet is all that is needed. It sounds as if you had some lovely early morning and evening beach walks - how idyllic. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support
