About the property

Shute Cottage, Manorbier, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Perfectly Placed For A Holiday, Walk To Village And Beach In One Minute

Gorgeous family holiday home or a romantic, boutique retreat. Shute Cottage was shortlisted for a National Award in Design and Architecture for the renovation and expansion work within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Lovely Manorbier beach, a golden sandy cove with great rock pools, popular with both families and surfers, 2 minutes or less on foot. Look out of the kitchen or bedrooms onto the majestic C11th Norman Castle. The original dwelling probably dates back to Norman times with a rare stone vaulted ceiling and later addition of a round Flemish chimney. The link from the cottage to the light and spacious extension was built in 2003 to create the most stunning base in the most idyllic location. Very well appointed, dishwasher, washing machine, flat screen tv,dvd, stereo, ipod dock, telephone Free WIFI is now available. Beach Break tea rooms just up the hill. Village shop, open 'all hours' 1/4 mile. Tenby 4 miles by road or 5 miles by coast path; similar by boat.

About Sally Kinnear

We live with our boys in the heart of rural South Pembrokeshire surrounded by fields and woodland on which we keep Welsh Black Cattle and other animals.

The feeling of space is great and have embraced the latest trend of triathlon so plenty of open water swimming, cycling and running on the golden beaches! Although have the chance of using a beautiful sailing boat this summer so maybe that'll have to change!

Our boys love their rugby in the winter and cricket in the summer amongst other things so well into the community spirit.

After all these activities we do enjoy eating out and also cooking at home.

Jim has renovated many beautiful properties, particularly stone ones starting up in his native Cumbria now down in Sally's part of the world. The holiday lets are all his creations

Sally Kinnear purchased this house in 2003

Why Sally Kinnear chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

Shute Cottage is in the most superb position and came up for sale when the timing was right...

After many discussions with the National Park Jim set to work and added a light, spacious kitchen / dining area and big bedroom (with bathroom) and renovating the old part so that it would be warm, dry and very comfortable. The original dwelling probably dates back to C11th with a stone vaulted ceiling and a later addition of a round Flemish chimney. An engineered stone stream now drains the area beautifully and keeps Shute's water shute flowing.

What makes this house unique

So convenient to get everywhere but also a feeling of space. The gravelled drive at the front holds loads of cars; banks, willow trees & garden all around lets children (& grown ups) play or simply move the garden furniture to sun or shade, cool breeze or shelter - blissfull. Carry picnics, surf boards, kayaks, push sailing boats, down to the beach. Set a challenge of land v water..first to get to Stackpole Quay via the coast path or water gets an icecream!! Adrenaline junkies; don't forget to jump in afterwards (if the tide is in). Fresh strawberries and asparagus are a must from Springfields, artisan bread from Lamphey bakery (shuts at 1pm) is amazing and the new Nash Farm shop is delicious. Come back for a hot bath or shower, light a fire or bbq and chat through the day's highlights

Guestbook comments from the owner

*Fabulous New Year's week! Romantic setting, Shute Cottage is well equipped and beautifully decorated. If you do trip out try The Plantagenet House in Tenby - one of the best meals ever. Thanks again, we'll be coming back soon. Liz and Simon, Dan and Rachel.

*Another lovely week in Shute, thanks for the milk, flowers and welsh cakes. Sorry to leave, especially 'Buster' he's worn out, he loves the beach. We'll be back" Thanks again, The Smith Family

*I love Shute Cottage so much. I'm so sad to leave. Found loads of starfish on the beach and released them. love from Enka, 7 years old xx
