The Old School House - Walton West, Little Haven, Pembrokeshire, The Pembrokeshire Coast, Wales - Sleeps 12+1

The Old School House

This large rambling character holiday home dates back to the 1820’s and has many original features, including a wealth of original exposed beams. With beds accommodating thirteen guests, the property lends itself best to parties of twelve and was formerly the school house for Walton West until the 1950’s, which adds to its quirky nature. Set within five acres of beautiful natural grounds which include a pond, stream (both are unfenced so care must be taken with young children) and meadow, this is an ideal location for a family holiday. The Old School House offers rustic traditional charm rather than modern stylish elegance and is a practical base for exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast and enjoying all this appealing seaside location has to offer.

The Old School House is situated in the hamlet of Walton West, ten minutes walk from each of the villages of Little Haven and Broad Haven, with their delightful sandy beaches, charming pubs and wide range of restaurants and cafes. Broad Haven also has a number of shops including a small supermarket and kayak/windsurfing/wetsuit hire allowing you to enjoy the fantastic watersports available locally. Sailing and water sports tuition is also available at nearby Dale.

Sitting within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, guests can enjoy spectacular scenery and a wide diversity of activities. There are innumerable beautiful beaches of different characters, within easy reach. Some, such as Newgale, are great for surfing while others are more suitable for lazy days of rock pool exploration and building sandcastles.

There are fantastic walking opportunities along the coast and the Preselli Mountains and interesting towns and villages, such as St Davids, Tenby and Solva with shops to browse and explore. Several excellent golf courses can be found in the locality including Milford Haven, Haverfordwest and the Tenby Championship course and horse riding is available locally including beach rides.
