About Mrs. Eileen Fallon

Our family has operated a tourism business in Pembrokeshire for over 30 years and has a wealth of knowledge to pass on to both old and new customers alike. We resided in the picturesque village of Hodgeston until our retirement in 2007. Our son bought Rooks' Retreat from us 5 years ago and is enjoying carrying on the family holiday letting tradition. We want you to enjoy the cottage as much as we and our family do.

Mrs. Eileen Fallon purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Mrs. Eileen Fallon chose Pembrokeshire

The village is very picturesque and ideally located for touring South Pembrokeshire. It is in the National Park - the only coastal one - and you are never more than a few miles from a beach & spectacular coastal scenery. It's also an ancient land with 3 of the best Norman castles within just 5 miles. It has the beauty of the West Country but without the crowds!

What makes this cottage unique

Anyone who values peace and quiet will love the village and Rooks Retreat. It's rural but not isolated. Just sit out at night and marvel at the brightness of the stars due to a complete lack of light pollution. Truly wonderful!

A wonderful relaxing stay in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The property was ideal for our short break, it had ample parking and was easy to find.

Inside it had everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore the beautiful Pembrokeshire scenery as it was ideally situated near local beaches and attractions.

Lovely welcoming property, my husband is disabled so the downstairs bedroom/bathroom was superb. Upstairs bedrooms great for families, plenty of room. There was 4 adults and 2 children for the weekend and the property provided everything you could possibly want. Owner is very welcoming and friendly. Our grandchildren didn't want to leave. Pretty good location for travelling to everything that Pembrokeshire offers. Very peaceful except for the rooks - but these couldn't be heard inside the property. So a well named property Rooks Retreat!!!! Nobody could possibly complain about this holiday rental and we are hoping to return very shortly. Thank you x
