“The cottage which is part of a converted barn has been finished to a very high standard.
It is very warm, comfortable and spacious. The leather sofas are very welcoming after walking in the nearby national park. The massive kitchen has all mod cons.
The bedroom and ensuite on the mezzanine floor is well fitted.
This holiday home is certainly one you look forward to coming home to.”

“Brynbanc Lodge is a very comfortable and spacious holiday cottage for 2 people. It was fitted to a high standard and had everything we needed. It's ideally situated for getting to both coast and countryside, and it's lovely to be surrounded by the working farm - although you don't have to mind being woken by the cows! The welcome bottle of wine & Welsh cakes was much appreciated, and Joanne was an excellent host. We do intend to return for another stay.”

“As usual we had a great time. It is always great when you can return to comfortable and clean accommodation at the end of a great day out.
As always Joanne, Mike and family made us very welcome and helped to make the trip very relaxing and comfortable time.
Many thanks, see you next year.”

“For a much-needed break, Brynbanc Lodge was the perfect place to wind down and relax. The accommodation was very comfortable and luxurious. The aga was a new experience for us and we loved using it. It provided enough heat for the cool mornings and evenings. The location was ideal for touring Pembrokeshire, the north, west and south coastlines as well as several ruined castles. Watching the cows and calves on the farm was fascinating, as well as the two sheep who keep an eye on you. Many thanks to Joanne and Mike for creating such a wonderful escape.”

“We had a lovely week in a truly luxury cottage. It was a privilege to be staying on an amazing working farm. Joanne and Michael were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble.

We had such a good time even the remains of hurricane Ophelia did not dampen our spirits. Although, we did stay inside most of the day enjoying reading and relaxing in our lovely surroundings.

Doggy Thanks: Bayley certainly deserves a mention for being a great playmate for Dylan our black labrador.

We look forward to visiting again soon.”

“What a fabulous week we had. The weather was great but the holiday was made special by the cottage we came home to each day. Very spacious, very comfortable, clean, well equipped and the Aga, well, we had amazing jacket spuds!! It was great staying on a working farm, even if we were woken by the moo's from the cows! Lucy the pet sheep was hilarious running around and the daily visits from Bailey the farm dog were welcomed. Joanne and Michael were welcoming and we even had cake and chocolates left for our arrival. The farm is ideally located to visit the attractions in west Wales. Facilities locally are great. Little shops like a grocers, butchers and bakers in nearby Narberth but a larger supermarket is about 25 mins away. Having said that Joanne is happy to accept delivery of a supermarket shop so your shopping is waiting for you when you arrive. We particularly enjoyed the beaches close by. All beautiful. Thoroughly recommended. Thanks Karen and Jennie from Somerset.”

directions led us straight there and the lodge was open and ready for us to go straight into
it was the coldest part of February but the lodge was lovely and warm with the aga ready waiting to cook on
we took the dogs with us and they were made as welcome as we were
it is a great location for exploring Pembrokeshire and its lovely coastline
Joanne was always rushing around helping on the farm but never too busy to stop for a chat and offer directions to places and talk to the dogs”

This year we had our baby boy with us along with our dog who remembered his holiday there last year and felt right at home.

“Had a fabulous time at Brynbanc Farm, the location is just perfect. The Lodge was amazing, very high spec and very well thought out, Joanne has thought of everything. Loved staying on a working farm seeing the animals everyday and having the privilege of seeing a new born calf during our stay. Friendly welcome from Joanne who took the time during her busy day to chat and to make sure everything was ok. It's super dog friendly and our Vizsla, Wilson loved it especially playing with the resident, cutest dog ever, Bailey. Quite honestly, we didn't want to leave, the area is stunning and the beaches and Pembrokeshire coastline are breathtaking. We are looking at dates to book again for next year. For us this place is perfect.”

“The cottage was amazing it has everything you could ever need and more. It was warm and comfortable with plenty of space for us and our labrador. The cottage had lots of home comforts. Being on the farm was an amazing experience with the pigs and piglets running about and a new born baby calf in the field with its mum where we could watch them from the kitchen window. The kitchen window and bathroom window had amazing views as far as you could see. Joanne and family were very friendly always stopping for a chat, updating us on the animals and recommending places to go. We can not wait to go back were looking to change our plans for next year so we can return. Thank you Joanne and family for an amazing week with you all.”

“We have really enjoyed our stay at Brynbanc Lodge. We were made to feel very welcome and Jo communicated well with us throughout the booking stage. Being able to have our groceries delivered was an added bonus, especially when travelling with a toddler and space in the car is limited! The lodge was beautiful and well furnished with lots of space and home comforts. We loved being in the farm and our 16 month old daughter adored watching the animals and has learnt to say chicken this holiday :-) It was a great base to explore Pembrokeshire and we visited some beautiful places and beaches including Folly Farm, Dale, Stackpole, Barafundle Bay, Tenby, Merlins soft play in Haverfordwest and Colby Woodland Park National Trust. Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday, we will definitely recommend to friend bad family :-)”
