This was our third visit to Brynarth, and we have already booked the fourth! With the weather forecast looking particularly optimistic for late February, we 'phoned to make a reservation only a couple of nights ahead, and James and Stuart were very helpful. We had an excellent time, finding the place as relaxing as ever, which was the whole purpose of the trip as I am about to launch into a particularly hectic non-stop three-month work schedule. It is so good to be able to bring our dog Boris with us, as walking without him seems quite incomplete, and it was hilarious to see Brian again, James' and Stuart's dog who is a real character with a great sense of fun. One change we noted this time at Brynarth was the Guest Information folder, which James and Stuart have developed considerably since our first visit a year ago,and which provides invaluable information about local walks, visits and eateries to reflect their own experiences. Another feature which really struck us last week was the abundance of wildlife in the area - the local pheasant put in an appearance on the lawn as he took his constitutional, nuthatches and a woodpecker came to graze at the bird feeder, and the number of red kites circling around was astonishing. Finally, the thing which makes Brynarth special is the warmth of James' and Stuart's welcome, and this they support with a great deal of thought about everything they do for their guests. Thank you, and well done!
