About the property

Bungalow in Broadhaven, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Single storey cottage with all the comforts of home.

Gorse Cottage is a cosy, 2 bedroom holiday home set back from the beautiful sandy beach in Broad Haven. With two bright, fresh bedrooms and an open plan living area the cottage is an adaptable space ideal for families or smaller parties. The cottage is in a quiet cul du sac and close to the Blue Flag beach which is monitored by Lifeguards during high season. Broad Haven is a friendly, welcoming community and the village has a mini-market, surf shop, cafes and beach shops.

About Clive Anstey

We are a busy family of 5 - 3 growing boys, 2 full time jobs and 1 daft cat who thinks she's a person. Life is never quiet so being able to spend time in Pembrokeshire - a place of peace which feeds the soul - is a true and rich blessing.

Broad Haven is a wonderfully welcoming village community making it the perfect spot for time away from it all. So, when some of our family members began to relocate to Pembrokeshire we decided it was high time we found our own base to stay in when visiting.

Clive Anstey purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Clive Anstey chose Broad Haven

With a tight budget to work within we were delighted to find a sad and run down little house in Broad Haven in much need of serious TLC.

Since then it has been completely renovated both inside and out. The National Park Authority specifies the colours that the houses in our area should be. Our colour scheme led us to christen the house Gorse Cottage a name that suits it perfectly.

The house is now a much loved base, not just of us but for our many regular guests. The open plan living space expands to accommodate all our needs and the pleasure of drifting off to sleep to the sound of the sea never dwindles.

What makes this bungalow unique

The only difficulty we ever have is deciding whose turn it is to sit in the window seat with a drink and a book!

The short stroll to the Blue Flag beach means that you can pop back and forth with ease and the village amenities are just around the corner.

Over time we have built up our own set of favourite days out in the area and have written a guide book for guests to use...ideas for sunny and not so sunny days included!

Ample parking and flat access into the house make it suitable for all ages - and unpacking

Guestbook comments from the owner

A superb, bright, airy and immaculately clean cottage. Wonderfully equipped kitchen for the cooks amongst us. Brilliant! Can we come again?

Mark and Mandy

We come to Pembrokeshire every year and Broad Haven which is a favourite. We really enjoyed the cottage which has everything you need and our son appreciated all the DVD’s. Really nice personal touches in the cottage that you don’t find elsewhere – will recommend to friends.

We have had cottages all over the British Isles, north, south, east and west but this cottage is the best. Equipped to the best standard, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, there are utensils for every need and children have plenty to amuse themselves with toys and dvds.

David and Eva Rudy

What a wonderful way to spend out 40th Wedding anniversary, we will certainly be coming back again. But we will not be bringing so much stuff next time as it is all here.
