Cottage-lovers will be rewarded by the many delightful and original features of Brynteg, but will also enjoy the facilities such as the dishwasher, flat-screen tv and new bathroom. Every room has character, whether it is beams, rugs over slate flagstones, old fireplaces or oak doors with hand-forged nails and latches. In sunshine you can relax in the south-facing walled front garden and read or just watch village life go by, and inside you will be snug and comfortable by the fire. Brynteg cottage is ideal if you are looking for a peaceful and romantic cottage for two or a comfortable and homely base for a family or friends.
Brynteg is at the heart of the picturesque village of Mathry - from its hilltop position you have beautiful views of the sea and coastline, the Preseli mountains, and the surrounding rolling farmland criss-crossed with winding lanes and paths.
You are ideally placed between St Davids and Fishguard, and only about a mile and a half from the spectacular and unspoilt Pembrokeshire coast - the Pembrokeshire National Park - with its breathtaking scenery and outstanding coastal path. Walkers, beach-lovers, bird-watchers, sailors and water-sports enthusiasts will love the stunning coastline, islands, seascapes and award-winning beaches and coves. St. Davids with its Cathedral and superb sandy beaches, great for surfing, sea kayaking and swimming, is only a short drive away.
Opposite the cottage is Mathry's church with its ancient Celtic stone crosses still visible in the churchyard walls. Just a two-minute walk from the cottage is the friendly Farmers Arms village pub which serves a fine pint and good home-cooked food, and the welcoming Siop Fach Tearoom and Collectibles. Further down the hill in the old Sessions Hall is the West Wales Diving School. Cycle hire is local too.

Mathry is an unusual rural village in that it is set on the top of a hill, just off the A487, so avoiding the traffic along the main Fishguard to St. Davids road. The Celtic Coaster seasonal bus service around the St Davids Peninsula, and the Strumble Shuttle (St Davids to Fishguard) both stop at the Green in Mathry, so walkers can walk from Mathry along the coast path and take the bus back.
