About Maurice & Cristine van der Velden

Maurice and I grew up in the Midlands and moved all over the UK before finally settling in Pembrokeshire. We now live on a lovely smallholding, growing our own fruit and veg, keeping chickens for eggs and the occasional pig for meat.


Maurice & Cristine van der Velden purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Maurice & Cristine van der Velden chose Hook

We bought this bungalow because we've holidayed in Pembrokeshire since the year dot. We found it a wonderful, quiet place to bring our children with beautifully clean beaches and stunning countryside. We never tired of coming here and (eventually) came to live here permanently! We love the sheer space and tranquility of Pembrokeshire and West Park embodies that!

What makes this bungalow unique

West Park in Hook is a real Tardis - you'll be amazed at how spacious it is inside (looks like a small, 1950s, 2-bedroom bungalow from the outside). Don't be fooled! There's masses of space inside the bungalow and three quarters of an acre outside with extensive views across fields and open countryside. With 3 bedrooms at each end of the property, it's an ideal destination for two families, or to enable the youngsters to have a whole end to themselves. A lovely, quiet location to return to after a day exploring Pembrokeshire.

A spacious and well equipped house suitable for a big group of people traveling together.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, clean and well equipped with everything we need. We enjoyed very much!

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you left us a review as we very much wanted to make a comment about you, as guests!!! In 13 years of 'holiday letting' we have had properties left in all sorts of disgusting states ... as well as in pretty good condition. You and your party, however, have won the prize*! You left West Park cleaner, tidier and neater than any other guests we've had in those 13 years. Thank you. *Sadly, there isn't an actual prize but, if there were, you'd have it.

Peaceful and Tranquillising , perfect for a short stay!

  • 4 of 5

This place is so nice in a beautiful peaceful area, its clean with plenty of rooms to accomadate a large group. We were a group of 10 adults and we went there for a short break to celebrate my birthday. The kitchen is well equipped but the only down side is the dining area. The dining table is large but the benches (especially the one on the wall side) are so narrow (about 7 or 8 inches width) which is more suitable for children! As all adults, we found it difficult to sit there comfortably to eat! The local shops and facilities are not too far away but for sure you need a car to access them. There are some card games to occupy guests but I think this house has potential to have a table tennis or a pool table which can be easily placed in the middle reception room (with red leather sofas). This is only a suggestion as I personally am more attracted in properties with game rooms.

Over all this is very good house to stay in and I am definitely recommending it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that you found the benches in the dining room uncomfortable - this is certainly the first time we have received such a complaint. Admittedly, the property is aimed at large and extended families but we do like our adult guests to be comfortable. Thank you for your suggestion about a table tennis or pool table. We feel that a cupboard full of board games, two televisions, a study with around 300 hardback books and good company better serve the peaceful ambience we have tried to create. UPDATE: We have checked the seats and can confirm that the benches along the walls are 12" wide and, on the free benches, 14" wide. We do agree that these may be too small for larger-framed guests. As the table and benches were handmade for us out of solid American white oak, we aren't able to replace them at present.

Huge cottage in a very scenic setting

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this cottage for new years with a group of 9. Cottage is huge inside with a great lay out. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms that works well for a large group. Cottage is well equipped, very clean and well presented. Good location, only 10 mins from large town and shops. Would recommend this cottage and would stay here again. Owners are very friendly and supplied lots of useful info. Lots of activites to do within 25 min drive including go karting, horse riding, beaches, etc.

Large, very well-equipped bungalow, extremely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The photograph of the superb kitchen/snug did not do this room justice! Very well equipped with all the crockery, cutlery etc that was needed. The huge lounge was really comfortable, squashy sofas just right! Comfy beds and lots of bathroom space were brilliant!. The enclosed garden area was very useful as it was nice to just fling open the back door and let out the dogs without any worries, but because of the vagaries of the weather, did need mowing, as did the field. Be aware though, that the field is not perfectly enclosed. The shop in Hook has an excellent range of items. Lots of dog friendly places to go nearby, especially Milford Woods! Broadhaven beach was a good place to visit for a dog walk amd LLys y Fran country park brilliant!!

Overall a lovely property for a holiday!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! Unfortunately, it takes 4 hours to mow and, as you say, it's not always possible to do so on a weekly basis because of the weather. As a consequence, for 2017 we are letting West Park with 0.75 acres and the field will not be part of the let; it will be used for grazing horses.

Superb Large Accomodation suitable for familes and dog

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our arrival communication with the owners was very easy and pleasant. On arrival we found a superbly fitted large bungalow with six bedrooms, three bathrooms, two lounges (one very large) and a well supplied kitchen. Everything was spotless and our party of five adults, four children and a dog fitted in easily. The space allowed us each to have our "time alone" with no one getting under others toes. The garden was sparse but well kitted out with a largish lawn plus patio with large bench and sunbeds enough. To add to this there is also an enclosed field (freshly mown) which allowed for dog walking, stretching ones legs or even the odd jog.

All in all the accommodation contributed largely to a wonderful family holiday. Well worth the money!!!

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The holiday bungalow/cottage lived up to expectation. Clean, spacious and well equipped. It ticked all our boxes and more......

A great location for the coast - lots of beaches within half an hour and loads of local attractions to suit everyone.

Easy contact and communication with the owners - we had no problems but I'm sure any issues would have been dealt with straight away.

Would highly recommend.

Hook is a convenient and quiet central location for exploring West Wales & Pembrokeshire. Most of Pembrokeshire's stunning beaches lie within 15 miles - a short drive to places like Stackpole, Angle, St Ishmaels, Tenby and Saundersfoot; with easy access to the historic Preseli Hills and the world famous Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and coastal path. Oakwood and Bluestone Theme Parks are just a short drive away, as is Manor House Wildlife Park; Caldey Island with its Cistercian monastery; and numerous castles, such as Carew with its medieval watermill, and Pembroke.

The town of Haverfordwest is around 5 miles away to the North and Pembroke, with its famous castle, some 7 miles to the South.

Hook itself has a good Village Store & Post Office - just a couple of minutes drive along the village road.

Opposite the Village Store is Hook's Social Club which is open to all.
