Why Emma Beck chose Pembrokeshire
Bought in 1970 as an abandoned farmhouse with out-buildings and restored and extended tastefully and in keeping with the existing architecture and landscape.
What makes this cottage unique
The remoteness of the property and access to the landscape in which it is set enables guests to really enjoy the countryside. Being reasonably centrally positioned in Pembrokeshire allows easy and convenient exploration by car to the beaches (and Tenby) in the south of the county as well as not being too far away from the North Pembrokeshire coast and St Davids.

comfortable and clean
This was a lovely little cottage and seemed to be in the middle of nowhere very clean and comfortable. Had a lovely week only downside was the rain.
Peace and tranquility, bliss!
Stayed in this delightful cottage in early July. Me, the husband, 19 year old son, brother in law and two dogs. Lovely cottage in quiet country surroundings. Basic but cosy. Warning though upstairs is reached by steep stairs. There was no BBQ as was on inventory, so we bought one and left it. Plenty to do locally. Would return if we come back to the area.
Beautiful little cottage in a tranquil location
Owners very informative and helpful. Property is tucked away in lovely countryside but close enough to amenities. We had a very enjoyable stay (helped by the gorgeous weather we had) Great food at the Carew Inn and if the weather is bad its only 15mins from the indoor blue lagoon waterpark which we all enjoyed!!
Fantastic Little Cottage
We had a fantastic time at the cottage this July. My husband, myself, and my in-laws spent a week exploring the Pembrokeshire coast with this as our base. The cottage was comfortably furnished and everything we needed for our catering needs was provided. It was in a great location, close to great towns and pubs. It was also very peaceful for most of the stay. This is a great base to get out and explore southern Wales.
Lovely little cottage, beautifully presented and equipped, so peaceful, rural yet accessible, we had a wonderful stay and are going again. The owners are delightful, arrangements easy and communication good. We went in winter and it was beautifully cosy with loads of hot water, the double bed is very comfy and nice fresh bed linen & towels. You can take your dog, and in the summer there's a nice garden area overlooking the fields. Stairs to top bedroom very steep though - so don't put granny up there! We loved it.
Sweet little cottage. 10 minutes drive to beaches. Clean and well maintained. Owners very pleasant and not intrusive. Only 2 small gripes, extremely steep stairs to upstairs bedroom ( not recommended for young children ) and cottage would benefit from having a washing machine. Otherwise a nice place to stay.
Excellent restaurant in Tenby called ' the Plantagenet '. A little pricey but well worth it. Best beach in area is Barafundle Bay, free National Trust parking but about a third of a mile pleasant walk to beach. Sainsburys supermarket in Tenby. Seal tour from Tenby harbour worth the money.

Activity and Interests
Ten to fifteen minutes (5 miles) in the car will get you to the beaches. Saundersfoot and Tenby are the nearest beach towns with a number of National Park beaches in between and beyond. The coastal national park follows the Cleddau River and is located just a mile away.
Public transport is not available and your own car is highly recommended.
The nearest pub is the Cresselly Arms at Cresswell Quay and is nestled at the foot of oak woodland next to the Cresswell River. It is a fantastic place for an early evening drink in the sun while the tide creeps in.
Attractions of Folly Farm, Oakwood, Heatherton + Manor House Wildlife Park all within a 5 mile radius.
Nearest Beach is Tenby or Saundersfoot 10 mins in the car (5 miles).
Nearest shops are in Kilgetty (supermarket) 3 miles away.
Pembrokeshire is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and the coastal national park is outstanding. Activities around the park are high on the list such as surfing, rock climbing, fishing, hiking. Other more historical interests include local castles and the near by towns of St Davids, Tenby, Pembroke.
