about the property

Priced for up to 3 staying, sleeps 4. Dog-friendly holiday cottage restored by Griff Rhys Jones and family on the Pembrokeshire coast

  • 'Best Green Places to Stay' - Richard Hammond
  • 'Top 25 Dreamy Cottages for Christmas' - The Times

A fabulous and stylish modernist mill conversion by author/ TV presenter Griff Rhys Jones in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Melin is one of our most commonly booked properties (and then re-booked!) by architects and designers. The  Grade II Listed mill ceased being used in the 1930s  and its rescue and restoration was the subject of the BBC 'Return to A Pembrokeshire Farm' TV series. 

Melin is a stylish bolthole for two with a mezzanine loft for another two. Set in a peaceful location at the end of a track, with seventy+ acres of farmland that enjoy fine sea views, and our slide and swing for the kids just along the footpath.  Walk to the famous lighthouse on Ynys Meicl or hike out to Porthsychan cove, and don't forget to pop into the whale and dolphin-watching lookout. 

Hike over to the whale-watching lookout and lighthouse (2.5 miles by road) or 9 minute drive (3 miles) to Abermawr beach.

Sustainability was at the core of this conservation project, and there is access to two EV chargers for those with electric cars. 

Fly fishing for rainbow trout in two ponds available on site. Catch & release, arrange with estate manager after booking.

This is one of the most delightful (and stylish) cottages that we have stayed in. It's very well equipped and has everything you need and the location is stunning. It was very foggy when we were there...

customer reviews for Melin Trehilyn

This is one of the most delightful (and stylish) cottages that we have stayed in. It's very well equipped and has everything you need and the location is stunning. It was very foggy when we were there and that just added to the atmosphere - its so cozy! Will definitely be back

- Deb H,

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. We had a great time at Melin Trehilyn. An amazing restoration which meant on rainy days it was perfect to stay in and pop the fire on, but equally a great place to explore the outdoors from too. Looking forward to returning in the future.

- Sarah W,

Wonderful stay - an absolutely delightful place.

- Rebecca M,

It’s a beautiful location and a fabulous & authentic accommodation . The Trehilyn team really look after the place and could not have been more helpful and friendly. We will be returning !

- Timothy C,

Lovely place, and very clean, we really enjoyed our 3 night stay. It would be great if your holiday cottages supported the local farmers, eg buying milk from the Kiosk Dairy down the road rather than Tesco, and local lamb in your freezer. Possibly look at compostable cleaning sponges rather than J clothes.

- Gaye O,

This is a great conversion of the old mill with its modern annex. It’s set in a lovely garden with stream and pond and beautiful views.

- Ruth M,

Lovely short break - everything very clean and welcoming( didn’t find the en suite until day 2 as we thought it was another wardrobe

- Arwel H,

I think that Melin Trehilyn is a very special place to stay. The stream babbling through the garden and the views out of the bedroom window... what more could we ask! The living space is really stylish and Melin has all that we could want for on our holiday. A great setting in a very special area.

- Mary B,

Had a wonderful week @Melin Trehilyn. Cottage was perfect and, possibly, better than we hoped for. It’s situation provided peace and quiet, a secure garden area where our dog could be allowed out into and a nice walk on the farm which was less then three minutes from our door. I would certainly like to come back and stay here again.

- John M,

The mill was lovely, warm and great contemporary restoration. Loved it. Information, books, lovely comfortable accommodation. Great location. We had a wonderful few days.

- James L,

Lovely property, great location . Just a note , outside lights on steps from parking space down to house not working. Difficult to access in dark and wet weather .

- Jo R,

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Melin Trehilyn, it was great to watch the renovation DVD whilst being in the Mill House. It’s in a fantastic situation and the enclosed garden was ideal for the labs, only one dip in the stream and they loved the underfloor heating.

- James M,

The mill has been well restored to a high standard and the industrial historical features preserved. However, the metal cabinet used for plates cups ect would be improved by the use of a wooden unit in its place to match the cabinets already installed. A unit installed next to the fridge freezer to accommodate the waste disposal and provide a tabletop space for the microwave cooker would be a plus point. The Mill provided a wonderful spot for a holiday. The accommodation was first class.

- David B,

We had a fabulous 5 day break in sunny Pembrokeshire. The cottage is absolutely stunning with beautiful walks in ever direction . Venturing out in the car was also a delight with the gorgeous Whitesands Beach and St David’s just a short drive away. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here , loved the interior and exterior and easy parking. Can’t recommend highly enough . Thank you

- Amanda O,

Another superb holiday with UTT. Melin was probably the best yet and the grounds magical for the children.

- Dr dewi griffiths ,

We adored Melin Trehilyn , the absolute peace and beauty of the area means we’ve fallen completely in love with the farm and surroundings, wanting to re book as soon as possible , couldn’t fault it , wouldn’t want to , many thanks to Griff for putting this place out there , we simply loved it.

- Karen M,

This a stunning and beautifully designed get away, we absolutely loved our stay here. Instructions and directions were super clear, and the property was absolutely spotless upon arrival. There are loads of high quality features to enjoy here, and we slept and relaxed well as a result. Couldn't fault the place, and would love to visit again - thanks for having us!

- Daniel D,

We had a wonderful stay in Melin Trehilyn, the perfect base for our stay in Pembrokeshire. The location near strumble head feels remote and wild but is close to Fishguard, Newport, St David’s and many lovely beaches. Can recommend sea kayaking if you’re feeling more extreme! The cottage was very comfortable to come back to & surrounds with the nature trails where fun to explore.

- Hannah R,

Excellent and relaxing holiday. The cottage was delightful, set in a gorgeous venue and extremely dog friendly, which was a bonus given this was our first holiday with our dog.

- Nick J,

A lovely place to stay and for our dog who loved the stream and the end of the garden. Cool, stylish, snug and fun. Eager to go back soon

- Lucy B,

Despite mixed weather we had a lovely relaxing few days in this lovely renovated mill with its cleverly designed and warm extension. We think that this property has the best setting on the farm as it is next to the lovely stream and the floor-length windows in the main bedroom mean that you can sit and enjoy the view whatever the weather. Everything was clean on arrival and the kitchen was well equipped. We loved some of the design features such as the bookcase built into the stairs going up to the crogloft. It would be worth checking that the information in the guest file is up-to-date. The wi-fi information was wrong and we had to contact the housekeeper for details. Also, the code given to get into the honesty shop did not work but we did not pursue that as we did not need it. Although the file said that instructions for all the appliances were in the sideboard, they weren't, though we managed to work out what to do. It is a lovely property in a beautiful and historic part of the country.

- Mary A,

We had a really nice relaxing stay at Melin Trehilyn. Wonderful rural location with easy access to the coastline. Excellent property with lovely views, we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

- Rob P,

Fabulous! Sympathetic conversion of a former water mill, where attention to detail is everywhere. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the most relaxing stay ever, and our Collie loved the natural water feature, the most idyllic steam that snakes through the peaceful garden. Booking again as we speak! Thanks to all of the team at UTT and Trehilyn, see you soon!!

- Rich V,

Fabulous base to explore this part of pembrokeshire. The cottage (mill) is warm, comfortable and well appointed. The wifi is hit and miss but that doesn't spoil anything. The bed is beautifully comfortable with good quality linen. The dogs particularly love the garden, the stream and the adventure walk. We love this property and will definitely return 10/10

- Pamela B,

What a lovely place to spend a much needed getaway. There are so many lovely features to enjoy at Melin Trehilyn, but stand out things include the stream outside, the ‘hidden’ en-suite, the plentiful and generous basket of logs for the wood burner, and comfortable chairs and beds! Our daughter particularly enjoyed discovering the fish! A fabulous and peaceful location with superbly dark skies to enjoy on a clear night. We will definitely return.

- Hannah H,

We enjoyed our winter break in this very unique and thoughtfully designed property.It has beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and babbling brook.It would be useful to have a ‘smart’ tv for Netflix etc on long winter nights,

- Anthony G,

A wonderful, comfortable home, very well equipped and high quality beds, linen and towels. Very clean and excellent Covid protocol. We have stayed at various Trehilyn properties and would highly recommend them all. Thanks, Shirley, Al and Ellie

- Shirley selby-danes ,

Very comfortable place and lovely setting

- Sue shields ,

What a great place to stay! It's so peaceful and quiet, love the stream outside the bedroom window and the lovely views. We found it comfortable and warm with everything one could need, The only minor things for improvement are the mirror in the shower room light and the bed is very creaky off set by the excellent shower and the comfy bedding and pillows.

- Mary S,

We had a beautiful stay in the Mill at Trehilyn and exploring West Pembrokeshire for the first time. Lots of bracing costal walks, seals, and incredible places to eat locally. The Mill is a well designed contemporary conversion and we loved to come back and relax by the fire in the evenings. We will definitely return!

- Matthew-robert H,

We had a great time! A comfortable stay in a beautiful location. Top tip: It’s best to read the information pack when you arrive rather than the evening before you leave.

- David P,

Beautiful property and location. Fantastic views from bedroom window. Garden furniture needs attention.

- Tish T,

We are frequent visitors to Pembrokeshire and this is the nicest place we have ever stayed. Absolutely stunning mill conversion, super spacious and stylish - we really didn’t want to leave -especially our dog who we really struggled to get back in the car to go home. The mill is surrounded by enclosed gardens and had a little stream running through which was so peaceful to sit by and soak up the sounds and sights of the Pembrokeshire countryside. Gorgeous enclosed nature walks within the 70 acres of farmland on the farm too so we could walk dog and avoid livestock. Pembrokeshire coastal path walkable from the house too. We walked up to Garn Fawr hill fort some evenings to watch beautiful sunsets over the sea- which was really special. Fishguard only 10 minutes drive to get supplies too. Thanks to Griff and his family for creating the beautiful place and renting it out so we can share in it …We will 100% be back very soon.

- Beth morgan ,

Great place to stay, fantastic holiday soaking up the peace of Pembrokeshire

- Bridget C,

I’m glad we didn’t cancel our booking from May last year, which I’d booked for a big birthday, Melin Trehilyn was certainly worth the wait and didn’t disappoint. The location is perfect with wonderful walks right from the doorstep, the nature trail from the back garden was a lovely discovery walk, it would be great to come back to see the seasonal changes throughout the year....if only. The accommodation is beautifully finished and very well laid out, the underfloor heating was a joy which our Labrador ‘Jarvis’ appreciated too. We loved the bedroom which felt a bit cocoon like, the bed was very comfortable and I could stare at the beautiful views from the windows all day, especially the view from the largest window. It was inspiring to watch the DVD about the renovation of the cottages. The attention to detail, the hard work and commitment shown by the whole team definitely paid off and we would love to return to Melin Trehilyn again sometime very soon.

- Shirley C,

This is a truly wonderful house particularly if you are dog owners. The photos really don’t do justice to the property. Some great walks straight from the front door from the neighbouring’nature trail’ to the long walk to Strumble ahead lighthouse. This is our second trip with the first being 8 years ago and they often say don’t visit the same place twice. That’s not the case with Melin Trehilyn as was would want to keep coming back.

- Darryl davies ,

We loved our stay at Trehilyn, the peace and quiet, the incredible restoration of the whole place, the nature walks, the sunsets, just perfect. A much needed holiday, feel fully restored.

- Joanne P,

Melin Trehilyn has been converted with such flair and care. When we arrived it felt like stepping into a different world - silent except for the sound of the stream at the end of the lawn and night skies that were blankets of stars in the clean air. Wonderful. Thank you so much and thanks also to the housekeepers and Anthony for helping to make it such a great stay.

- Helen A,

Delightful, toasty warm beautifully located property that had everything we needed and more. We were really comfortable and had some lovely fires ion the damper evenings. All our senses were satisfied— it was a pleasure to wake up to the morning sun, to go to bed in the evening rain, and to wander round and explore through the time in between. The shop was brilliant for forgotten treats/essentials. We will certainly be back. Walking over the fort to Strumble Head and taking the coastal path to Porthgain— tiring, fabulous, with seal pups in each inlet. Priceless. Thanks. We loved it. Ian and Helen.

- Ian F,

Had a wonderful stay! Melin Trehilyn marries the modern with the traditions of rural Pembrokeshire life. In these difficult times a chance to relish 4 days of tranquility. The coastal path is a short walk away and spectacular.

- David C,

What an amazing place in an amazing location! The Mill was very stylishly done and perfect accommodation for us 3 adults Great to find the coastal path a short walk away with views in both directions and a perfect seating area at the viewing place Enjoyed watching the DVD of the Return to Pembrokeshire Farm available in the mill Loved it all

- Heather D,

This is our third stay at the Mill. We love the space with its beautiful and dramatic rural setting. Its a clever design that brings a modern comfortable intervention to a traditional farm building. It works well for the two of us plus dog and for our two friends who joined us for some of our stay. The Pembrokeshire National Park is just brilliantly bleak, beautiful and restorative. Its reassuring to know that development is largely contained so this landscape continues to be preserved. Long may it continue.

- Simon L,

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this beautifully converted mill. The house was clean and the décor and grounds stunning. Minor point: it might be time to replace the garden furniture. Some of the chairs are broken and the whole set has clearly seen better days :)

- Hendrik K,

Fantastic place in an amazing location. Lovely walks along the coastal path with the dog. Hope to come again soon.

- C featherston ,

We had a great time at Melin Trehilyn, a peaceful spot - renovated and brought back to life. The mill is spacious and had everything we needed - the outside space is well designed, with a bubbling stream running through the dry stone wall. There are some excellent walks here along the Pembrokeshire Coastal path, and a nature trail on the farm. Highly recommended.

- Euan M,

excellent location and excellent cottage enjoyed by all including sam the dog

- Kate W,

We enjoyed ourselves very much. Melin Trehilyn was cosy, comfortable and really well decorated. The property was private and quiet, and generated a sense of calm - just what was needed for a long awaited break. The surrounding area was lovely too. We aim to return.

- Anwen J,

we absolutely loved our stay in this beautifully restored old mill. The mill is exceptionally well kept, we were very impressed with how warm and cosy the mill was. We will definitely be looking to book this property again.

- Paul J,

We loved the cottage for its high-standard design and attention to detail. No expense has been spared in the furnishings and fittings, while it remains true to its original structure as a mill. Perfect for us as two friends each wanting our own space but also a comfortable living area; equally suitable for a couple and two children. Perfect location for walks, art galleries and eateries.

- Kitty C,

We spent a very happy week at Melin Trehilyn. There are two (and more!) wonderful circular walks from the cottage that cross fields and eventually join up with the coastal path (Strumble Head). The views all around are tremendous. There’s plenty of outside seating at the cottage and a gorgeous stream in the garden. Kitchen is well equipped and two good bathrooms. Underfloor heading and wood burner took the chill out of the August (!!) air. Tip: take the permissive footpath along the side of the cottage and across the field with sheep, look back towards cottage and the most amazing view of the sea.

- Hilary G,

This is a fabulous property, very special. We loved the clever conversion into a wonderful holiday home. Very comfortable, well equipped, great artwork in such a peaceful location. The dog loved the little stream in the garden. We had glorious weather and when not walking the coast path, enjoyed lying in the sun by the stream. Well located for lots of varying activities, we definitely want to return.A magical place to stay - thank you to all involved. Have already recommended to a friend who wants to book in October!

- Alison T,

We have stayed in many holiday homes but never one like this. The mill is light and airy and comfortably warm and the garden is delightful. What particularly struck us was the tranquility- lovely to come home to after a day’s walking. The care and attention to detail taken during the building’s restoration has paid off and is a credit to all concerned.

- Lynda speake ,

Absolutely beautiful cottage in a great setting. Loved our stay and the folks there even called us as soon as they found our son’s beloved bunny. That’s service!

- S shanmugalingam ,

Well what to say first, great location for exploring the Pemrokeshire coast, from Fishgaurd to St David’s, stopping in at Porthgain and Whitesands. Melin Trehilyn is a fantastic conversion of an old mill, done with thought and great taste, our daughter loved the crogloft, the bedroom addition is wonderfully constructed and decorated. Arriving on a cold New Years Eve into a warm and welcoming cottage, with everything provided to start our break; logs and kindling for the fire, milk and coffee, soft and fluffy towels, plenty of reading material and DVDs should we decide to stay indoors. It was difficult to tear ourselves outside, but we were greeted to a bubbling stream, a pleasant garden and a woodland walk. Will we go again? most definitely. 10/10, Five Stars.

- Graham L,

The accommodation was really lovely. Very well appointed and a delightful space to spend time in. The surroundings are peaceful with access to beautiful countryside. The underfloor heating can be a little disconcerting as it comes on depending on external weather. So sometimes it's on and very warm outside as well.

- Brian H,

A fantastic little property. Ideally situated within a short walking distance to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The building was amazing and it was good to watch the DVD which showed the work involved. The garden was lovely - table and chairs for six, so plenty of space to sit and eat outside. Views were fantastic. Weather was also good to us. Would have loved a bbq, maybe you have them set up in the summer months? Shop is a brilliant idea as is the table tennis, a small emergency frozen pint of milk (you do butter) would have been a lifesaver as the milk went off in the fridge or maybe some long life in the shop. Have recommended it to many people.

- Loretta L,

Wonderful and inspiring building offering great comfort in outstanding location .

- Riccardo R,

This is our second booking with UTT and booking process was made very easy and worked well as per their instructions. We really enjoyed our stay and don't have any complaints at all. It was particularly nice to have the one to one attention. The property was everything as described and more. We would definitely stay again. Thank you.

- Bernadette F,

What a great holiday we had at Melin Trehilyn. The accommodation has bags of character and charm as well as all the mod cons you'd expect of a 5* hotel. Perfect for a getaway from the city. We particularly enjoyed the coastal path trail which is within walking distance of the cottage and has amazing views

- Jackson A,

We have lost track of how many times we have visited Trehilyn. Each time is special in this amazing place. Our first stay in Melin Trehilyn and we loved it. Thanks to all!

- Ruth L,

What an absolute find Melin Trehilyn turned out to be. We loved the minimalist, industrial look, especially the lighting. Everything needed for a holiday home was there, well stocked kitchen, clean bathrooms and lovely fluffy towels with good quality bedding. We took many walks along the coast, found some wonderful beaches and lucked out with the weather. An excellent holiday home, I'm sure we will return.

- Marion H,

We had an absolutely fabulous time at the mill. Idyllic setting. Everything we needed for a stress free relaxing holiday. Loved the seals at Strumble Head

- Amanda K,

We had an absolutely wonderful week in Melin Trehilyn. Our guests that came to join us to stay at the Farmhouse, Bwthyn and Beudy for the weekend were all awestruck by the stunning location and these unique properties. It was a perfect way to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends. We were blessed with glorious weather which just added to the success of our break away. All of us have decided that we will be back, as individual families or as a group again. Griff Rhys Jones should be commended for this remarkable restoration project - fascinating to watch the videos of the process. Many thanks to Eleri for her help with the booking, and thanks to Shirley and Wyn, the housekeepers, who were a delight to meet.

- Myfanwy S,

This is a charming getaway, well equipped and wonderfully warm. We went for walks, runs and bike rides and there is ample choice for any of them. We failed to get to the little cinema in Fishguard but would have made an effort if the weather wasn't so nice that we were exhausted by the end of each day. A real place to regenerate and we'd go back in a flash.

- Katie D,

Having just returned home, unpacked and put the kettle on - my family and I are already discussing when we can return to the little slice of perfection that is Melin Trehilyn. The accommodation is stylish and comfortable, with lots of little touches (books, games, dvd's, a torch) that make a last-minute weekend away during the depths of winter easy and pleasnt. We also loved the gardens and the beautiful clapper bridge that spans the stream. Great walking country with plenty of villages to visit, Newport being our favourite. The housekeeper, Shirley, was accommodating and helpful, and the honesty shop is a great idea. A wonderful, restful place - we can't wait to return.

- Alison M,

Completely recharged after spending 4 nights at Melin Trehilyn. Great location and just a short walk to the coastal path. The accommodation more than met our expectations, as did the weather! Staying here was a delight - we hope to come back soon. The only negative was having to vacate by 10 am.

- Catrin H,

Great cottage in a great part of the world. Very well equipped and snug - would have liked to get the log burner going but it was too mild!!

- Jill C,

We had a wonderful birthday weekend at Melin Trehilyn. The accommodation must be one of the best we have stayed in and we have stayed in many. The conversion of the building and its extension, together with all the lovely furniture and little pieces of detail made our stay, perfect. Loved the underfloor heating and the woodburner. The location is superb, total peace and quiet and the stars at night were a joy to see, with no nightglow in the area. We will definitely be back. Martin and Karen

- Karen B,

Wow! What a great place to escape to! The cottage was all that we'd hoped for and more. Such a tranquil spot at the end of the track looking out onto fields; the most beautiful countryside. We all loved the stream in the garden and the fact that you could go through the gate and walk for miles. Our dog loved the garden and especially liked paddling in the stream. The mill was perfect! We loved the double bedroom which felt like a little haven. Wonderful to wake up to the view from the large window. The children (15 and 12) loved being in the loft and spent many hours, in the evenings, upstairs in their own space, but still being with us ( the whole loft idea is fantastic!) to join in conversations and plan activities for the following day. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to return! A special place!

- Rachel B,

A lovely holiday home. Great location. Relaxing. Thank you.

- Anthony W,

Lovely cottage, really dog friendly, and very, very peaceful. Really happy to find Swallows nesting on the building. Completed circular walks on the coastal path every day, and feel refreshed by the beautiful unspoilt countryside and fantastic views. Would recommend to anyone seeking a peaceful rural holiday.

- Gill cummings ,

Lovely cottage in an amazing location. Will go again.

- Colin S,

This was a great cottage with a very large main room having an indoor balcony overlooking it. There were plenty of showers and the beds were comfortable. A good base for nice walks.

- Richard lane ,

We stayed at the cottage for a four night break. The directions to the cottage were excellent and we were extremely happy with the accommodation. We did some wonderful walking as the weather was kind and The Mill was always warm and cosy to return to. It was easy to follow the instructions in the info folder to access some lovely costal walking. A beautiful part of the world. We hope to return and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

- Brenda T,

We had the best holiday ever. We loved the property and will be back. Jo and David

- Joanne M,

A wonderful stay yet again in Trehilyn. We have stayed on a number of occasions in Trehilyn Farm. The Mill is one of our favourites a place with great character, lovely sleeping facilities and great location. Comfortable and very practical for our two terriers. The weather was dry and cold but the underfloor heating and woodburner made us very comfortable. We will undoubtedly be back. Owen, Angela, Chris, Catrin and dogs

- A l jones ,

Had a fabulous few days cottage is very comfortable and position is perfect.Weather was kind to us and we walked our chocolate lab along the coastal path each day ending with a swim,only for him.

- Pat S,

We loved staying at Melin Trehilyn for Christmas - it is a stunning house, really comfortable, stylish, spacious and beautifully designed. It was the first time we'd been away for Christmas and we (and the dog) had a great time. Thanks to UTT and housekeepers Shirley and Wynn for sorting us a brilliant real tree and coming out so promptly when there was a problem with the electrics due to the storm. This is in a fantastic location for the coastal path and the woodland walk next to the house is lovely - if a bit muddy when we were there due to all the rain. Would definitely go back - one of our favourite UTTs.

- Elisabeth mahoney ,

A truly unique holiday cottage and a fabulous place to unwind.

- David hugh button ,

We had a great week here - the mill was beautifully restored and functions as a fabulous place to stay. We loved exploring locally and walking up Garn Fawr, which you can see from the house, for the views over Strumble head.

- Clare R,

A wonderful short escape; stylish and very comfortable accommodation, peaceful and atmospheric setting and amazing scenery .. and just a short drive to beautiful Pembrokeshire beaches.

- Carol B,

Lovely place to stay. If only we'd had better weather it would have been perfect but staying in a property like this definitely helped. Comfortable and unique. Would have loved to have had a sunny morning to have had breakfast outside in the lovely garden with the stream running by. Such a beautiful outlook. Thank you.

- Julie C,

Our latest stay at Melin Trehilyn was as magical as our previous holidays at the mill. The quiet mornings with the bubbling of the stream at the back to wake you and the crackle of a log fire and cosy underfloor heating to warm you after a wild and windy walk on the Pembrokeshire coast. We have stayed at this beautiful place in the heat of summer and depths of winter and it has never failed to make us feel at peace and blissfully content. Brilliant location to visit all the Pembrokshire sights. We will be returning. Highly recommended to all.

- Kathryn P,

A fabulous and tranquil space to stay in. Contemporary decor, well equipped with high quality goods,quirky design and funky furniture. The bedroom annex and bathroom were a joy to 'rest' in with gorgeous views. Lovely outside garden area that my dog roxy loved to potter around in with a babbling stream running near....perfect! This was one of my favourite UTT spaces. I want to come back very soon!

- Mr s t john ,

Such a relaxing place to stay . Lay in bed with the sound of the stream running past in the garden . Walks along the coast line ,with in walking distance of the cottage .Cosy nights in with the wood burner going . Lovely place to stay Chris

- Christopher F,

Another brilliant week at Melin Trehilyn - good weather, comfortable surroundings, lovely views, peace and quiet and lots of wildlife (including a whale off Strumble Head). We'll be back.

- Lloyd harris ,

This is our second stay at Melin Trehilyn and yet again we had an amazing time. The mill is restored to a high standard with everything available to make your stay comfortable. A beautiful setting with just the noise of the birds stream and sheep. Just beautiful, what more could you ask for x

- Sarah W,

What can I say? Well this mill is absolutely brilliant. From the stream outside to the inaccessible beach that turned out to be only vaguely accessible, but beautiful. And the interior . . . simply the best house in which I have stayed; the selection of books was magnificent; our stay has been glorious. Ayway, thank you, thank you, thank you! This house has brought me to an idyllic part of the world and I am oh-so grateful! Anna, Rachel, Lucas & Tag 2.9.11


We absolutely love the mill! Watch the DVD of its restoration, it really is amazing! A walk up to Garn Fawr is well worth the short climb as the views are spectacular. Everything about the mill itself is just beautiful. We can't get over how peaceful it is . . . . We'll definitely be back and will be recommending it to everyone! We don't want to go home . . . 5.7.10


A remarkable time in a magical place. Whoever you come with, enjoy them and let the special atmosphere of this place do its thing. We don't want to go home either, but we are very pleased to have been here. Wonderful. Russell family 25.8.14


What can we say – beautiful house – views – fantastic artwork – fluffy white towels – crisp linen – and the soothing stream. Fully recharged but sad to leave – have had such fun! Debs & Cliff
