Sea Glass is a purpose built holiday home sleeping up to four, located within Pembrokeshire's beautiful National Park. Sitting within a holiday village that is kept to a high standard, this affordable, cosy, compact coastal retreat is equipped with everything needed to self-cater and is ideal for one or two couples or a small family.
From the front windows of Sea Glass visitors can enjoy lovely views that stretch across the valley incorporating farmland and the beach. Behind the chalet rises a wooded hillside. Perfect at any time of the year, the property is kept cosy during the winter months by double glazing and electric storage heaters. For when the sun shines, there is a garden seat at the front and a grass area for relaxing outside. Wi-Fi is available - in the property by subscription by the day or week to a local provider - or free a five minute drive away. Please note that the chalet is some distance from the road and parking area, and would be a bit of a climb for the frail or less mobile.
Freshwater East's wide sandy beach is just minutes away by foot and is perfect for both young families building sandcastles and those who want to be a bit more active. Hop on the Coastal Cruiser (it stops daily outside the holiday village between May and September) and explore the coastline without needing to use the car, or take to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. For those who want a break from cooking, the Longhouse [on site] provides free WiFi as well as snacks, meals and drinks all day. There are also a number of pubs within a short drive, the Freshwater Inn [a mile away] being the closest. The village of Lamphey (two miles) also has a pub as well as a petrol station, shop and bakers and a mainline train station connecting to Swansea and Pembroke.
The holiday site is in an attractive position adjacent to both local wetland and sand dune nature reserves with open access for the public. Extensive outdoor activities include walking, surfing, coasteering, horse riding and kayaking, some of which can be organised through the Longhouse. Boat trips to offshore islands sail from Tenby, Dale and St. David's.
Manorbier is a lovely village to visit with its Norman castle and can be accessed either by the local buses or coastal footpath, as can the National Trust cafe at Stackpole Quay and the stunning lily ponds at Bosherston Estate. Other local attractions to visit include Carew Castle, National Trust Colby Woodland gardens, the Bishops Palace (at Lamphey) and also the seaside resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot - all within a thirty minute drive.
The historic town of Pembroke, with its magnificent castle and supermarkets, shops, cafes and pubs, is just five miles away and the county town of Haverfordwest, with extensive shopping facilities is eighteen miles from Sea Glass - There's certainly no shortage of great days out for those who can tear themselves away from the beach!
