Turning our passion into your dream retreat

AA Gold Award

We have received an AA GOLD AWARD!
The inspector said of the retreat:
“In terms of AA Quality Standards Brook Cottage Shepherd Huts has achieved a well deserved Gold Award. I received a warm welcome from Mark Barrow and found his enthusiasm infectious as we viewed all aspects of this new and exciting holiday destination for lovers of a wonderland unspoilt part of The Principality. The vision to create this unique destination is commendable and attention to detail is particularly noteworthy. The individuality within the huts is particularly impressive and both practical and thoughtful items are enhanced by quality of design. I wish Mark and Jonathan the continuing success they thoroughly deserve following this well deserved recognition.”


Hi folks, this is me, Mark (on the left) with my better half Jonathan (on the right, obviously) on the balcony of ‘Joan – Lady of Wales’, our shepherd hut, and we look forward to welcoming you to our exclusive little retreat here on the glorious Pen llyn. xx

We love this time of year. The nights are starting to draw in, the leaves are turning on the trees, but best of all, we get some stunning sunsets.

Pickle snoozing

Mr Pickle having a snooze (again!)… that’s when he’s not trying to be the centre of attention of course.

Many thanks (Diolch yn fawr),

This is Mr Pickle. He’s about 8 years old and we inherited him when we bought the cottage in April 2019 as the previous owners were worried he wouldn’t relocate very well… which was fine by us as we’re cat lovers anyway and he seems quite happy with his new servants 😉
