About the property

Cosy cottage in Carew near Tenby - Log burner, water views, close to pub and castle, quiet situation but easy access to main roads

Roselea Cottage is a small detached bungalow/cottage, located in the oldest part of Carew village. It has been fully refurbished to a high standard, has gas central heating and a log burner in the lounge for which we provide a starter pack of logs, kindling and newspaper. Also in the lounge are two comfortable leather sofas, a large flat screen tv, dvd player and radio.

There is a decked area leading from the back door and a fully enclosed lawned area to the rear, with off road parking to the side. The back garden is accessible via a wooden door from the parking area or from the back door of the cottage.

The cottage has hard floors throughout, some tiled and some wood laminate with rugs. All bedrooms have thermal blackout curtains and views onto the garden.

The bathroom has a large bath with shower over and a heated towel rail.

The kitchen has a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer etc and lovely views over the millpond.

Suitable for any time of the year, Roselea is in a quiet part of the village although not far from the main roads to Tenby, Pembroke etc. It is in an area popular for the nearby pretty walks around the mill pond and not far from the coastal path.

We welcome one or two well behaved dogs at £10 per week each however, we do ask that they are not permitted to jump or sleep on the furniture and are not be left alone anywhere in the property for any length of time.

This is a strictly no smoking property.

About Anthea Evenden

We are a semi retired couple who live in the Tenby area and have two holiday properties that we rent out.

We have decided to offer them through 'Owners Direct' having successfully rented through the site ourselves on several occasions.

We aim to equip and maintain our properties to the high standard that we ourselves hope to find when renting a holiday home, and encourage our guests to give us honest feedback in order that we can improve on this.

Most winters we undertake some kind of upgrading or redecoration so the many guests who return every year always have something new

Anthea Evenden purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Anthea Evenden chose Sageston

This is a quiet area in the oldest, most historic part of the village where properties rarely change hands.

Surprisingly spacious for its size the cottage has a cosy, homely feel and we fell in love with the beautiful views over the millpond.

What makes this cottage unique

Handy for the excellent country pub and restaurant over the road (which is also dog friendly!)

Also close to lovely walks around the castle, ponds and watermill

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage has been successfully let through an agent for the previous two seasons but we have decided to now let through Owners Direct so that we can have more knowledge of who we are renting to and to cut out the middle man and offer a better price to our guests.

A warm and comfortable cottage a stone's throw from a great pub

  • 5 of 5

Surprisingly spacious and ideally placed as a base for touring and exploring this beautiful area: sadly the weather was a limiting factor and we look forward to returning.

A delightful cottage in a pretty setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely perfect for us (2 adults and a dog); with plenty of room for 3 adult relatives to come and visit for Christmas day too without feeling cramped. It is very comfortable and well appointed - there was nothing we needed that wasn't there for us. The garden is totally secure with great views across the surrounding countryside. We loved the small room at the back of the house (too big to be called a boot room!)...... perfect for soggy dogs to be dried off before entering the main part of the cottage. Anthea and Paul's directions were easy to follow and we were made to feel very welcome throughout. I really can't recommend this cottage more highly.

Brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Roselea the location was perfect, very close to a lovely local pub and you could see Carew Castle from the front door.

Looking at previous reviews we tried The brewery at cosherton for Sunday lunch we weren’t disappointed it was a lovely meal but must book. Enjoyed our stay

Good location, clean & tidy

  • 4 of 5

Would recommed for some peace and quiet and country walks in the area. Property is well laid out with just enough room for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Close to Tenby (10 minutes) and most places in Pembrokeshire are generally around an hour away.
