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 St Brides Bay, St Davids & The West Coast

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.

We had a fab week with our two grown up daughters walking the magnificent Pembrokeshire coastal paths. Trefin is a lovely village, great pub and cafe for late breakfasts!

The house is a clearly a labour of love and credit to both Heidi and Bruce.

Many many thanks to you both!

Kind regards

A lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This a very nice , comfortable , well equipped house. It is large with 3 large bedrooms , 2 good bathrooms , a huge kitchen/diner and good sized lounge .

It is very well furnished, decorated and equipped. Beds were very comfortable.

The house is alsom very well positioned in village of Trefin, a few doors from pub and the very good Mill cafe. Trefin inlet/beach and the coast path are only 500yds away. Parking outside.

Porthgain ,Abercastle, Abereiddy etc all a few miles away and only 8 miles to St Davids.

The photos do not do it justice.

Easy to deal with Heidi and Bruce.

Thoroughly recommended

Fantastic property set in a lovely quiet location. Truly enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply our favourite home rental to date. Really warm feel to the house and very well equipped for a family.

Conveniently located close to the coastal walk and small beach in a lovely quiet village.

We'd love to visit again, and base our further exploration of Pembrokeshire from Taneilan.

A winter holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious house and very well fitted out - well thought out. We were there in December, and it was nice and warm, with underfloor heating downstairs. It is also a very attractive village, with a friendly pub, and great cliffs in both directions along the coast.

Warm, comfortable, well equipped home from home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from spending most of the October half term break in Trefin with our two teenage children and a teenage friend. The house is lovely and far exceeded our expectations. It is immaculately clean, and there is everything you need for a great stay. Being about 4 doors away from The Ship Inn was great, with The Mill Café next to that - perfect! There are great coastal walks you can do from the property, or Trefin allows easy access to other towns such as St Davids and Fishguard. We found it to be the perfect base for our break.

Large, comfortable house. Modern and well maintained. Ideal location for Coastal Path. Close to a bus stop. Village pub is friendly and serves good food. No hesitation in recommending this property. Owner responded quickly and efficiently to queries.
