About Sue and Gary Busby

Sue is an artist and it is her eye for colour and her intuition for design that you will experience during your stay at Ranelagh. The collection of colourful rugs (Persian, Afghan & Danish) were sourced by her partner Gary, who spent many years in the flooring business. We have been successfully renting out Ranelagh, a 3 bedroom mid-century house next door, as a holiday home for 3 years so decided to take early retirement in March 2016 in order to renovate Colliston, a 1960s bungalow next door. Eventually we will retire to one of the properties but in the meantime we intend to travel in our motorhome, when both houses are rented out. We have had a variety of careers (including looking after a country estate) and have lived abroad (Sue in Ireland and Switzerland and Gary in Mexico) but feel most at home in beautiful North Pembrokeshire. Eventually we would like to find time to slow down, enjoy our surroundings and make things!

Sue and Gary Busby purchased this house in 2013

Why Sue and Gary Busby chose Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is in our opinion the most beautiful part of Britain, with a coastline that extends for 185 miles, friendly people, lots of activities and great Welsh food - what more could you want? Some people say that it is a bit like Cornwall but without crowds - We think so, but our part of Pembrokeshire has better beaches by far!

What makes this house unique

Ranelagh is next door to Colliston ref 8236293 ( 3 bedrooms, sleeps 5), so large families or groups can book both houses. Ranelagh is a very light house and has that special feel that you only get next to the sea.

You can spend hours looking out of the windows of the living room and bedrooms with their sea and Preseli views. The wood burners in the reception rooms give a very special cosy feeling in the evenings and often you fall asleep to the sound of the wind in the trees mimicking ocean waves.

All of the beds are extremely comfortable, but dawn breaking across the Preseli Hills is a beautiful sight that entices you out of bed.

A lovely house in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We annually have a couple of holidays in different areas of the country staying at a 'holiday' house which needs to be comfortable, well stocked/supplied, and central to local attractions.

This was our first return to Pembrokeshire after many years and after our stay we were completely satisfied with our choice of location.

The house was ideal, lots of space, lovely view, interesting grounds, and everything we wanted or needed at hand.

Having the owners staying close by just provided the personal touch.

Beautiful house, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely two weeks, despite very mixed weather. The house was beautifully clean, and very well equipped. We played lots of board games, and my daughter baked cupcakes, having been inspired by the stand mixer in the kitchen!

There are lots of places to visit in the area, and the restaurant at the Rose & Crown down the hill is lovely.

The owners are very helpful, without being obtrusive. We enjoyed the beautifully fresh eggs from their chickens, and they were also kind enough to post a dressing gown back to us, which we left on the back of the bedroom door!

We would definitely stay here again.

That view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday helped in large part by this beautiful, comfortable, very well-equipped house. The gardens really are something to behold. I've mentioned the view already. The walk up (and down) the hill helps burn the calories consumed in the lovely dining room. And of course it's in Pembrokeshire, surely one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Thank you!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is tucked on a hill so the views are really nice. The house was very cozy and it was well laid out with a nice sized kitchen for all 5 of us. We did not walk to the beach so cannot vouch for the path but have no doubt it would be a hike. We would definitely rent it again.

Superb Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Ranelagh. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed - a real home from home. The garden was spectacular and the children enjoyed playing and exploring in it. We loved watching the birds from the dining room windows while we ate. The location in Goodwick was ideal for exploring the coast and beaches. We would love to return to Pembrokeshire to explore the area further. Many thanks,

From the Sharpe family.
