About Lucy Black

Ivan and I moved to Pembrokeshire from London fourteen years ago. When not helping to occupy our four children Ivan creates sculptures from his workshop down the road.

Lucy Black purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Lucy Black chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

When Ivan and I resolved to move to Pembrokeshire 14 years ago we ideally wanted a property between Pembroke and Manorbier which was as close to the coast as possible. Ivan had holidayed in the area since he was a child and knew it very well. Who knew we would find exactly that! With Tenby and Pembroke a five mile drive in either direction and a twenty minute walk to Manorbier Beach, Lime House and the adjacent cottage are set 200m back from the road. We are surrounded by fields whilst also being close to amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

It took us two years to restore the property whose limestone fireplace and vast inglenook fireplace date it to the early 17th century. We have used traditional lime mortar in the walls, with natural clay paint. Non-toxic finishes have been used throughout, such as natural oil polish for the solid oak floors, doors and staircase.

The private garden is the perfect spot for a barbecue after a day spent on one of Pembrokeshire many fine beaches. The oil-fired Aga keeps the cottage dry and cosy throughout the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have very much enjoyed our visit and great walks and cycle rides. Stunning countryside. Good surfing. Pembrokeshire is the business. The cottage makes it perfect."

"We have had a lovely week here in your beautiful homely, spacious cottage. You've done such a great job here, the craftsmanship, the wood, the care- thank you! We recommend it very highly"

"What a lovely comfy, homely and spacious cottage, the patio area with view absolutely great, the cottage has been done to a high quality. Look forward to a return visit, would highly recommend it to friends and family".

A cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lime Cottage is very well appointed and a comfortable place to stay with welcoming hosts. The cosy warmth from the aga relaxes you, and is great fun to cook on. The location is fantastic being secluded and peaceful, but within walking distance of beautiful Manorbier beach and the castle. I would recommend this cottage and look forward to visiting again one day.

Cosy Cottage and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely short break at the cottage at the end of January. The cottage was very conveniently located for key attractions e.g. Barafundel, Tenby, Folly Farm and was perfect for our needs. The owner was very helpful and provided toy and games for our children and made us feel very welcome. The cottage has been restored beautifully and the kids loved the original/secret staircase. We'd never cooked on an Aga before but it's not rocket science and it kept the house lovely and warm. We'd definitely consider staying here again.

A lovely, well-equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Lime Cottage.

Lime Cottage is comfortable and well-equipped with everything we needed. I found the Aga a bit of a nightmare to cook on, but other than that, perfect! There is a lovely little garden and barbecue, which we used a lot. And a friendly cat visitor!

The lovely beach is a 5 minute drive away and there is plenty of parking there. Also, if you’re an angler, lots of pike to be caught in the sea! The local pub in Manorbier is friendly and serves good beer, but we found the food to be very disappointing there.

A beautifully restored cottage in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

Lime Cottage was a lovely holiday home for our family of four adults and two young children. The cottage has been carefully restored with traditional finishes, is comfortably furnished and well equipped, clean and welcoming. The children enjoyed the toys, especially the slide that Adam appeared with when we arrived, but best of all was the secret staircase beside the huge chimney. The aga cooked our meals well and dried clothes quickly when needed. The garden is perfect to catch the last of the sun and we enjoyed using the barbecue.

This is an excellent area for a family holiday with outstanding beaches that were still worth visiting on blustery days. Lots to do and places to visit. To be highly recommended.

Perfect family cottage in Pembrokeshire

  • 5 of 5

Lime Cottage is a calm, welcoming and spacious cottage, with plenty of safe outdoor space for little ones. The downstairs space is very comfortable and liveable, with a notably well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs, the bedrooms are peaceful and perfectly-sized, and everywhere there are nooks and crannies full of books for everyone. Floors of oak and quarry tiles, lime render on the thick walls, and a surviving stone hearth and chimney stack from centuries ago complete the perfectly-judged blend of old and new. A delightful place to which we hope to return. Highly recommended.

Clean and comfortable cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage full of character and orginal features. We have stayed here three times now and enjoyed both the property and the surrounding area each time. Lovely beaches at nearby Manorbier and also on the Stackpole estate - the walk from Bosherton to Broadhaven being a favourite. Carew castle also very tranquil. I would happily recommend this property.

Car: recommended


Manorbier was described by the Guardian as 'The perfect seaside village'. Within 20 minutes walk from Lime Cottage you can be on Manorbier beach, with its waves, rock pools and large stretch of sand. Also within walking distance are Church Doors, Skrinkle, Presipe and Swan Lake, all accessible from the Coastal Path.

Less than 10 minutes drive east is Tenby and it's popular beaches. To the west (25 mins drive), are Barafundle and Broadhaven South. Also Freshwater West, the famous surf beach.


Manorbier train station is ten minutes walk away. We are just off the A4139.


Tenby is 10 minutes East and Pembroke 10 minutes West. Keep driving West and Pembroke Dock is best for supermarkets (Aldi, Lidl, Tesco) although there is a small Sainsburys in Tenby. I try to shop local for meat & fish (Tenby market great for both). We have two local pubs 10 minutes walk away, both serve food. Pembroke, Carew and Manorbier Castles within a 5 mile radius. The Pembrokeshire Coast is known worldwide as a place of outstanding natural beauty with a selection of beautiful beaches.
