Archer's Cottage is a pristine cottage in the heart of the Pembrokeshire countryside. It is perfect for couples seeking a romantic escape and with a second double bedroom, it also makes it a popular choice for two friends who require separate rooms. The cottage is near the tiny village of Clarbeston Road in a quiet location with gorgeous views. It's a fantastic place to get away from it all, although there is lots to see and do in the vicinity so you can be as relaxed or active as you please.
Clarbeston Road is just over three miles from the cottage, with an excellent pub (The Cross Inn) and a mainline train station with direct trains to Cardiff, Swansea and Fishguard Harbour. There is a wide choice of shops and supermarkets only a 20-minute drive away in Haverfordwest. As the county town of Pembrokeshire, it is well served with amenities that include a farmers market every Friday at Riverside. The ruins of the castle, whose stone walls date from the 12th Century, keeps a protective eye over the town, where there is also a museum in the old gaol.
You are never far from a good meal when you stay in Pembrokeshire. Whether you buy fresh ingredients to cook in the well-equipped cottage kitchen or treat yourself to a delicious meal in one of the area's many pubs and restaurants, you may have to loosen your belt a notch or two before you leave! Archer's Cottage is only 20 minutes from Narbeth where there is a fantastic choice of independent boutiques and shops that include a family-run butcher, deli, and cafes, as well as Friday Farmers Market and an annual food festival.
It would be a shame to stay in Pembrokeshire and not spend some time on its breathtaking beaches. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is less than 15 miles from the cottage, putting beaches like Nolton Haven and Newgale no more than half an hour's drive from the door. Spread your towel out and relax in the sunshine, or walk a stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Footpath for stunning views in every season. Alternatively, drive south to Saundersfoot and Tenby.
Local attractions include Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm, boat trips to Skomer Island to see the puffins, and Pembroke Castle which is where Henry VII was born. The tiny cathedral city of St David's is about a 45-minute drive from Archer's Cottage, while the pretty harbour town of Solva is a little bit closer. An extensive network of paths leads through the countryside so you can walk or cycle from sunrise to sunset and never have to see the same view twice.
Archer's Cottage is warm and welcoming, with a pretty garden for relaxing on summer evenings and a cosy log burner for winter nights snuggled up with a glass of wine.
