Bronhaul Farm Cottages
Bronhaul is a haven of tranquility in the rolling green shires of West Wales. It’s a diverse and abundant valley of ancient woodlands, babbling brooks, flourishing gardens, rolling pastures and fertile wetlands. For many years, and for many people who’ve spent time here, Bronhaul is a place of retreat, natural beauty and biodiversity, deep peace and reflection, escape, inspiration, regeneration. Bronhaul offers relaxing farmstays in our characterful self-catering cottages, simple ‘back-to-nature’ camping holidays in our bell tents and the healing benefits of time in nature on our land-based retreats. We’re also a small-scale working family farm, passionate about local food, sustainable living and working with nature. Come and join us! Experience the farm life, volunteer, learn skills for sustainability, play, imagine, immerse yourself in wild nature, eat local food, explore what wild West Wales has to offer .
Bronhaul Bach:Translated from Welsh as ‘Little Bronhaul’, Bronhaul Bach was our first holiday cottage, and to this day remains one of the most popular. It is a cosy, warm home-away-from home. It might be small, but it has everything you could possibly need, including WiFi, TV & DVD player and a spacious, sunny courtyard garden. It is the perfect base to explore what this area has to offer.
Rock Cottage is our renovated, characterful two-bedroom stone cottage and the perfect home-away-from-home during your time in West Wales. It’s a warm, cosy home for a family or group of friends and a welcoming space to return to after a day’s adventures out in our little corner of the world. It’s also well-equipped and functional, and you’ll find everything you need for a comfortable and stress-free stay.
Coach House: The ‘Coach House’ is part of a recently renovated stable block. It’s our largest cottage and the perfect getaway for a small family or a couple wanting to really spread out!
We named the ‘Coach House’ based on its historical use as a rest-stop for weary travellers. Whilst renovating the cottage we’ve been very careful to maintain as much of its original character as possible. This has included the careful restoration of the original stonework and timber lintels as well as rebuilding the existing archways into striking red-brick features. The arches themselves frame views through the French doors out to the fields and woodlands of the farm and the beautiful green valley beyond.
The ‘Coach House’ has two bedrooms: a large, bright double and a spacious twin. There’s also one modern bathroom with a shower over the bath. The entrance hall leads through to a spacious and very sociable open plan kitchen and dining area that will comfortably accommodate 4 adults. The carefully preserved stonework, wood-burning stove and comfortable furniture make the living room an extremely cosy place to spend the evening.In the Summer you can enjoy evening barbeques in the your own large, private courtyard at the rear, which has a perfect aspect for catching the last of the day’s sunshine. In Winter, snuggle up by the wood fire, and while away the evenings with a movie, or a board game or two!
Ty Cuddfan is a large, bright one bedroom apartment. It has a spacious double bedroom, large bathroom – with a separate bath and shower – and fully equipped kitchen. The spacious living area opens out onto a large decking area that catches the afternoon sun.Translated from Welsh as ‘Hideaway House’, Ty Cuddfan is named for its secluded, private location tucked away on the farm. Our guests can truly get away from it all, with only farm animals and wildlife for company!
Yr Atig, translated from Welsh as ‘The Attic’, is a warm little studio, situated right above the hearth of Bronhaul, our wood-fuelled biomass boiler. It’s an ideal little space for a solo traveller or couple just passing through or taking some time to enjoy the peace, tranquility and natural beauty of our little corner of Wales. It’s also well-equipped and functional, and you’ll find everything you need for a comfortable and stress-free stay.
Yr Atig, as you see it today, is part of a ruined outbuilding that we renovated in 2012. Once a rest-stop for weary travellers and their horses on their way through the village, the building had fallen into bad disrepair. We replaced the roof, restored the old stone walls and rebuilt the beautiful red-brick arches that are the proud face of the building today. We also made sure to install high-quality insulation, a biomass boiler and a solar panel to create a warm and energy-efficient space. It was a labour of love, and we were still fitting the last little additions as the first guests came up the driveway, but we are proud to have restored the building to its former glory (except there’s a few less guests on horseback these days ;))!
