Reviews for Brig y Don

Meet the owner

Chris Purnell

We are Chris and Eirian Purnell and we’ve been welcoming guests to the beautiful Cardigan Bay coast since 2011. We live in Cardigan and, with our three grown-up sons, love to enjoy all that rural, coastal life has to offer – whether that’s kayaking with dolphins or walking the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path. As a family, we have always prioritised holidays together and know their importance to family life. We work hard to ensure that Brig y Don provides a unique, comfortable home-from-home from which to enjoy a great holiday and are proud to share it with you.
