The back garden has 5 terraces, each with granite walls and stone steps. The garden can be tricky to negotiate and care should be taken at all times, but your efforts will be rewarded by the fabulous view from the upper terraces across the house roof to the harbour and distant hills. It takes a while to reach the top terrace so take a flask (provided) of tea and some cups.
Due to the nature of the garden its mostly strimmed grass and wild flowers.

Accessibility: – There are steps up to the house and to access the garden.Unfortunately, because of the varying levels this house is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
Bryn Coed is great for adults and is fine for sensible teenagers but again because of all the steps It isn’t great for very young children. I’m afraid we do not allow pets.
This cottage is great for adults, it’s fine for sensible teenagers, it’s not great for very young children,(the house is fine but not the garden) they are very welcome but you must speak with me first. Because of the varying levels the property is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The are steps up to the house and to the garden. Walkers will love it, as will anyone into water sports and the increasingly popular ‘Coasteering’. The surrounding country is diverse and ranges from mountain to valley and from wild and rocky to calm and sandy, every activity is catered for so some forward planning will help. Visit the tourist information to find out about the full range of activities available. Outside: There is a patio area to the front of the house, it’s elevated by a meter from the road and is fine for watching the world go by and saying hi to the neighbors. The back garden is extraordinary with stone paths, steps and wooden steps – all leading up to five terraces with stone walls. The garden is a bit tricky and care must be taken at all times – but the view across to the harbour and hills is great. There is seating for four with a table on a small quarry tiled area. Some of the terraces are level some still sloping – take the chairs to any level you like – a different one each day if you want.It takes a while to reach the top – so take a flask (provided) of tea and some cups.
