The Cottage is a place where you instantly feel relaxed. Thick stone walls, warm flagstone floors with underfloor heating, and a cosy log burning stove make it perfect for families and couples even during the colder months. The Cottage is a converted stable block on a former farm that is set back from a peaceful country lane that has no through access. Despite the remote and peaceful location, the house benefits from fast WiFi and is within easy reach of shops, cafes, pubs and beaches.
Although The Cottage is wonderfully rural, the marina, cafes and pubs at Neyland, on the Cleddau are just a short three-mile drive or a pleasant cycle away; the riverside pub the Jolly Sailor in the nearby village of Burton is a particular favourite. The Pembrokeshire Coast is famous for its pristine beauty and wealth of wildlife. Boat tours from several locations take visitors to Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm Islands, giving the rare ability to see puffins, dolphins and whales in their natural habitat. The river is great for sailing and fishing, with more opportunity to do both at one of the nearby beaches.
You can walk to the Milford Haven Waterway in under an hour and still take time along the way to watch birds or enjoy the view. The county town of Haverfordwest is only 6 miles away where you will find a good variety of shops, bars and places to eat, as well a golf club, one of many locally. Milford Haven, with its easy access to the open sea, is popular with anglers, sailors and divers; the area around the redeveloped fish docks is worth a visit.
Ramblers love Pembrokeshire. The Pembrokeshire Coast path runs for 186 miles along some of the most beautiful coastline in the world, and there is a regular local bus service along stretches to make it easy to get back to your starting point at the end of an enjoyable day of walking. Other fantastic walks include around the Marloes Peninsula that overlooks Skomer Island, around St David’s Head and up Carn Llidi, and a circular loop from Porthgain that takes you to the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy. The coast south of the Cleddau is worth exploring too; Bosherston Lily Ponds, the area around Angle & Saundersfoot to Amroth are among a wealth of possibilities.
Are you after fantastic beaches? You will find more than a few in Pembrokeshire! Broadhaven, Little Haven, Barafundle Bay and Freshwater West will keep even the most enthusiastic sand-castle builder happily occupied for weeks. Tenby’s three beaches and ice-cream coloured houses are a picture-perfect backdrop for a fun day out, while further north you have St Bride’s, Newgale, Solva and St Dogmaels. With all of this, plus attractions like Pembroke Castle, Folly Farm and Oakwood Theme Park, nearby, The Cottage is the perfect holiday destination; situated towards the centre of the county, the whole area is easily accessible.
