  • "This was our 2nd stay at brook lodge & was equally as great as the 1st stay."

    Bonus of better weather this time. Such a comfortable & well equipped lodge. Very dog friendly, with just the biggest secure garden for dogs to enjoy. Owner are both so friendly & helpful. Would definitely recommend. We will return!!

  • "Just come back from a weeks stay at Brook Lodge, we had the most beautiful weather which made our stay even more beautiful."

    The lodge itself was exceptionally clean especially for a dog friendly property, The bed in the main bedroom is huge and super comfy the only problem we found was due to the size of the bed there was little room to store clothes there is however a hanging rail in the cupboard so could easily be rectified by either bringing your own hangers of there being more at the property. The kitchen was very well equipped, we cooked a few times but also had a couple of take aways and a meal out at The Bunch Of Grapes which was a short 10 minute drive - We would recommend a visit, they are very friendly and the food was perfect. We were welcomed by a lovely welcome pack including bits for our dog which was a lovely touch. You can tell that Louise and Terry welcome feedback because things raised in previous feedback have been improved for example there is now a bell they ring prior to coming in to check the hot tub. We felt very respected by Louise and Terry, we were left to enjoy our holiday without interruption however on the occasions we did bump into them we had chit chat which was nice too, I felt they were great hosts for sure. Finally the garden/grounds are also very well kept, the garden is very safe for dogs, we loved the boarder of wild flowers around the edge of the garden too. On route in and out of the property we enjoyed seeing the birds, sheep, chickens, rabbits and squirrels too. It really was a beautiful lodge in a great location on lovely grounds owned by the nicest of hosts.

  • "We have stayed at this lodge before and found it to be well kept and the surrounding ground is ideal for our dogs as it gives them the freedom to roam around as they wish."

    Louise and Terry are a lovely couple and always ask if everything is ok for you. We find that it's an ideal location for easy access to the nearby west coast beaches. Look forward to staying here again.

    Perfect in every way. We all had a fantastic time. Dogs where so happy in the large garden & we just loved everything. Hot tub amazing!! Terry & Louise so lovely & welcoming. A really lovely time was had by all . Already booked again for next year.

  • "A lovely comfortable lodge."

    The hot tub was clean and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dog although please note, when the owners check the hot tub, they do just walk in without warning, even if coming outside of the specified 10.30 - 11.00 times. A suggestion would be for there to be a bell on a gate that is rung, giving a warning and enabling time to get the dog secured and get some clothes on! Other than that, the bed was really comfortable and the place was spotless. The local pub, the daffodil, served really good food and it is close enough to visit the coast.

  • "Such a great place to stay, especially if you are staying with a dog as the garden is awesome, large and secure."

    We felt welcomed and really appreciated the gifts left for us on arrival (tea, biscuits, eggs bread and even some treats for our dogs) The lodge was very clean and cosy, hot tub is just amazing, and exactly what you need after an active day in Wales. It's nicely located, not too far away from south or north coast ( the beaches there are superb) Overall great stay and we were sad to leave. Will definitely recommend

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased you had a great time. We hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

    It was very well appointed with everything we could possibly need. We really appreciated the welcome pack with treats on arrival. The garden is big and fully enclosed and our two dogs enjoyed exploring and running around - they too were welcomed with treats! The lodge was spotlessly clean when we arrived and there is plenty of space for a family. We really enjoyed our stay - I wish we could have stayed longer! I would definitely recommend Brook Lodge and we would definitely stay here again.

    We really appreciate your lovely review - thank you. We hope you can return sometime soon. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay, the lodge was very clean & comfortable, and the location idyllic."

    The garden is such a secluded and peaceful place with the birdsong providing the soundtrack, we decided more than once just to spend the day relaxing there. We loved the hot tub, which got used daily, it's the best we have had at a holiday let, it really helped after a long day in the car. The bed too is worthy of note. Very big and very comfortable. Louise and Terry are great hosts, we got a very warm and friendly welcome with lots of advice on places to visit and where to eat (and get the best ice cream), We didn't see much of them as they obviously respect their guest privacy and only come over to tend the hot tub once a day. We only stayed 1 week, and if we could have done would have happily stayed another, and I hope we get to stay again sometime soon.

    The cabin is very spacious inside and has a huge secure garden surrounding it, and a lovely large hot tub right outside the door, also the surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful. There is a well stocked nearby shop and a pub that serves food, and New Quay is about a twenty minute drive away. The owners Terry and Louise are very nice and were thoughtful of our privacy, although were at the nearby cottage if we had any problems, of which we had none. Everything was simply perfect and we would highly recommend a stay at Brook Lodge.

  • "The cabin and garden were very nice."

    Sadly, the hot tub was dirty and unsafe to use. The water was cloudy with what appeared to be an oil slick on top. The sides of the tub were also greasy to touch. and it was not fit to use. When we complained to the owner his only reaction was to tell us to leave , which we did the following morning.

    We were 4 people and two dogs and we couldn't have asked for somewhere better. The lodge was bigger than what it looks in the photos and fit us comfortably. The place was immaculate and had everything we needed, as well as a really nice welcome pack included. The dogs had so much space to play and run around all day, and the garden is very secure so we didn't have to worry! The lodge is on a beautiful farm and really very quiet and peaceful.

  • "We had a very restful holiday in this lovely little lodge."

    Both my husband and I had worked through lockdown and were desperate for some peace and quiet and this was definitely the place to go. We were also very lucky with the weather, despite the forecasts, which was a bonus. The lodge was neat and clean and had everything we needed as well as a welcome package, we actually don't think the photos did it justice! The bathrobes in the main bedroom were also a nice touch. We took 2 teenagers and were worried that they would get bored but the wi-fi signal was good and the hot tub well used every day. Our 2 little dogs absolutely loved the garden/field and the fact they could roam around freely. It was fully enclosed unlike other places we've visited that say they're enclosed but actually aren't. The little shop at the top of the lane provided what little bits we needed. We didn't get to try the local pub as when we were thinking of going it was closed for a couple of days - preparing for September opening and distancing. The owners to Brook Lodge were very helpful, checked the hot tub every day and told us of a few nearby walks and local places to visit (I think they were worried that we didn't go out much!) We did visit several of the coastal towns but tended to stick to quieter times of the day, as when the weather was really nice they did get very busy. If we ever needed a place to relax and unwind we would definitely consider booking this place again.

    Trying to find somewhere that is really suitable for a dog.. that you can just open the door and they can have a good run is brilliant. The garden circles the lodge. The lodge itself is lovely and cosy, has everything you possibly need, the bed was very comfortable with a TV attached but I never used it..or the main TV.. the kitchen had all you needed. The hot tub was really big. There are lots of walks from the lodge for those days you dont want to drive. Perfect spot for exploring this end of Wales. We went from st David's to strumble head then all up to new quay. Was a very relaxing holiday, I would definitely go back to brooke lodge as we didnt get to see all the places. Owners are very lovely full of information on the areas. Thanks for a great week.

The property

A traditional timber lodge surrounded by a large garden area on Wern Newydd smallholding in Penrhiwllan. The name of the cottage derives from the little brook that runs alongside the property, a lovely little cabin suitable for a small family looking to get outdoors and discover an alternative style of accommodation. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon on the comfortable sofas with a good read or sit out on the veranda with a refreshing beverage and even climb into the hot tub and soak up the bubbles. When the day comes to a close and it's finally time to rest, there are two delightful bedrooms for you and the kids to get a peaceful nights' sleep. Note: Property can be booked with Ref. 983485 and 983484, together they sleep eight people.

Wern Newydd

Wern Newydd is a smallholding housing three delightful properties in the town of Llandysul. Rose Cottage is a lovely semi-detached annexe to the main farmhouse whilst Brook Lodge sits alongside the little stream with a surrounding verdant garden, ideal for sitting out and soaking up the rural atmosphere while the kids run around with the dog. Rose Cottage and The Mill each offer a homely, inviting atmosphere with a mezzanine-style bedroom overlooking the cosy sitting area. The bespoke super king-size bed exudes unique quality and style whilst the enchanting spiral staircase boasts elegance. They both comprise well-equipped kitchens for all your cooking needs, accommodating dining areas and fabulous hot tubs (excluding The Mill) to enjoy with a refreshing glass of wine. Brook Lodge sleeps four people in two bedrooms; a super king-size with an en-suite cloakroom and a twin bedroom. The modern shower room exudes a Scandinavian feel with light wood panelling all along the walls in a quality finish. These cottages are ideal for a couple and a small family wanting to get together in the idyllic countryside. Why not dine out for the evening together? The Daffodil pub/restaurant is very well renowned locally, is dog-friendly and is about half a mile walk at the end of the farm track. There is lots of walking available, kayaking on the river Teifi with Llandysul Paddlers and Brechfa forest not too far for mountain biking. Llandysul is a thriving little village boasting a range of shops, tea rooms and even its own canoeing club and national cycle route 82. With plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, Wern Newydd provides three wonderful properties from which to discover a lovely part of Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
