41 St Brides Road is in the picturesque coastal village of Little Haven. The former fisherman's cottage has been extended and renovated and is a fresh and welcoming holiday home for couples or families with space for four people (plus extra child) to sleep in two bedrooms. Every comfort has been considered by the owner, with guests enjoying a high standard of accommodation only a short stroll from the beach, shops, cafes and three welcoming pubs that include St Brides Inn.
While undoubtedly most popular in summer, Little Haven has something to offer holidaymakers all year round. The sheltered sandy beach has rock pools to explore. When the tide goes out, it reveals a huge expanse of beach, and it's possible to walk around the shoreline to neighbouring Broad Haven or to the small cove that is Sheep's Wash. Little Haven also has a slipway and an RNLI Lifeboat station. Broad Haven is Little Haven's bigger brother, with a larger choice of shops, cafes and amenities. It's only a mile from the cottage and not worth getting into the car when there is a stunning coastal footpath to use instead. Broad Haven has a thriving summer surf school and is the place to hire SUPs, surfboards, wet suits and other equipment.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path provides access to 186 miles (300 kilometres) of some of the most beautiful and dramatic coastline in Britain, between Amroth in the south and St Dogmaels in the north. A regular bus service, the Puffin Shuttle, makes it possible to see even more of it than a normal there-and-back walk would allow. Walk to St Brides, five miles south of the cottage, or head north for six miles until you reach Newgale. You're only limited by your legs and the weather.
Day trips can include browsing the Friday market in Haverfordwest, admiring the cathedral and galleries of St Davids, and checking out the locals at Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo. Drive to Bosherton to see St Govan's Chapel, a simple hermit's cell with links to King Arthur, and the otters of Bosherton Lakes.
41 St Brides Road is available for bookings all year round.
