This holiday cottage is set in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, a tastefully converted former granary thought to date back to the mid-18th century which once belonged to the Stackpole Estate. Nowadays, a large part of the Stackpole Estate is cared for by the National Trust including its award-winning golden beaches of Barafundle and Broadhaven South, and the beautiful Bosherston Lily Ponds, famous for their otters, waterfowl and water lilies. Enjoy stunning walks along the cliff tops and beaches of the coastal path, or through the pretty woodlands and around the tranquil lakes of the estate. Cycle one of the only "bike-friendly" sections of the coastal path directly from the cottage (limited access to this route - please check), or enjoy fishing, water sports and horse riding locally.
For days out without the car, the Coastal Cruiser on request bus service stops by the cottage to give access to towns, villages and the magnificent Norman castle at Pembroke, birthplace of Henry VII. The atmospheric St Govan’s Chapel nestles into a fissure in the cliffs with origins dating back to the 6th century and is 3 miles away. The Green Bridge of Wales and Stack Rocks, famed for their interesting geology and colonies of nesting seabirds are also 3 miles away.
The pretty medieval walled town of Tenby with its picturesque harbour is just a short drive away, from here you can take a boat trip to Caldey Island, home to a Cistercian monastery. Manor House Wildlife Park, owned by Anna Ryder Richardson, Folly Farm, Heatherton, Oakwood Theme Park, Blue Lagoon, numerous historic castles and gardens, and the Preseli Mountains are also within easy reach. Relax in front of the cosy woodburner inside the cottage or watch glorious sunsets over the surrounding countryside from the patio. The Boathouse Tearoom (NT) at Stackpole Quay is 3 miles and Ye Olde Worlde Cafe (Auntie Vi’s) at Bosherston is 2 miles. Cawdors Tea Rooms and a shop selling seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables at the Stackpole Walled Gardens is 1 mile away. Other shops 4 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
