Pretty, Stone Cottage, Offering Flexible Accommodation In Great Surroundings

Overview

Property

Updated: 20-Oct-2016
"Two Hoots" Cottage in Hodgeston, Pembroke, Pembrokeshire National Park - Super Location For Touring, Walking, Exploring Or Just Chilling, There Is So Much On Your Doorstep

Hodgeston lies midway between historic Pembroke and lively Tenby. The cottage was built in 2005 - a conversion of the granary of Hodgeston Hall, the neighbouring Grade II listed building. Great care has been taken to empathise with its surroundings - the exterior being built of old, local limestone, whilst internally there is liberal use of exposed timber.There is plenty to do and see in this lovely part of Wales and clues to its Norman history and ancient past are all around, with the magnificent castles of Pembroke, Manorbier and Carew. Water sports, boat trips, fishing, golf or walking the coastal footpath are just a few of the holiday activities available. Freshwater and Manorbier beaches are a firm favourite with surfers and kayakers, whilst Bosherston lilly ponds provides gentle walking and excellent fishing. The award-winning Barafundle Bay is within 5 miles and if walking is your interest, the coastal footpath is at the top of the lane outside the cottage and you can hop on and off the Coastal Cruiser bus if you don't want to walk back!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really has such a lovely time staying at Two Hoots and enjoying the Pembrokeshire countryside. Here's what we did, encase anybody with a family asks for recommendations:

We had an action packed week with great weather. On Sunday we went to Pembroke Castle, which I would recommend. I think we climbed up every step to the top of each tower and enjoyed the goodies in the nice tearooms there. We went Horse Riding in Marros, we found the leaflet on your welcome table. I would really recommend Marros as the staff we so nice and welcoming. The kids really enjoyed it. We stopped off in Saundersfoot, at The Lounge for a lovely lunch and afterwards went to the beach. FollyFarm was just fantastic and probably the highlight of our holiday, a real must for the kids, big and small. On Wednesday we lunched at the Stackpole Inn, and again had a delicious lunch. We went to Stackpole afterwards to walk in grounds, probably went a bit to far along the path as there was lots of moaning from the kids on the way back as the tired leg syndrome kicked it! But I loved the walks. Our only wet day was spend in Oakwood. It was a bit cold and miserable for the first hour or two. But we had great fun on the rollercoasters and rides. By the evening nobody wanted to go home. Our daredevil 9 year old had the best day ever! Our 4 year old initially declared that it was 'the worst day in Wales EVER'! She came round soon enough though. I was initially dubious about going to Oakwood having read some poor reviews online but I have to say we did have a great time. We eat in De Vecchi's in Tenby afterwards and it was very tasty. Friday was a trip to Barafundle.. its so beautiful there. We enjoyed the walk to that beach. During the week we also walked to Freshwater East, which we found was quite a trek with the kids, maybe its not really within walking distance with children. During our stay we also ate in Lamphey Hall. We found that while one of our meals was good value. that other was rather expensive and a bit over priced so it does depend on the time and day really. We also eat at Freshwater Inn, which was ok but not sure iI would go back. Nothing wrong but I have had taster meals.

All in All.. we had a really great time in your beautiful homely cottage. We chatted to the neighbours who were very friendly. Ive already started recommending Two Hoots, and we do hope to return again. I really haven't got anything negative to say, its all positive

Lovely spacious, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for three nights while we walked the South Pembrokeshire Coast path each day. It's a pretty cottage in a lovely little hamlet close to the coast. Spacious, well equipped, very clean and comfortable.

Couldn't have hoped for more.

Location

From the Owner

We have holidayed in this part of Pembrokeshire as children, we have taken our children, visited with friends and escorted elderly relatives. We adore the coastal paths and the beaches. Even now we find new places to explore and still enjoy the old familiar places. There is something comforting about becoming a regular visitor. The road networks in this area are great, so getting here is no hardship.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is at Freshwater East, which has a good pub. It is reached by a comfortable (Restricted Access) road walk for about 20 minutes (approx 1 mile) crossing the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path before dipping down to the extensive sands. Freshwater East Bay is served by the Coastal Tripper Bus. There are numerous other sandy beaches and coves to explore if you wish to walk further or drive, including Manorbier with its Medieval Castle and Stackpole Quay which also has a Cafe.

Travel:

Nearest Airport is Cardiff and Ferries operate from Pembroke Dock.

A Car is essential for the exploration of Pembrokeshire. Sat Nav using the postcode will take you to the village. The cottage is situated further up the lane running on the right side of the church and just around the right hand turn next to Hodgeston Hall.

The nearest supermarkets are located in Pembroke (Co-op), Pembroke Dock (Asda, Tesco, Lidl). Tesco delivers to the village. Banks are in Pembroke & Tenby. Tenby is the largest town with numerous tourist attractions & lovely beaches. There are theme parks at St. Florence - Heatherton, Dinosaur Park & Manor Park. The biggest is Oakwood - about 8 miles - where you'll find a great leisure centre. Swimming pools are also in Pembroke & Tenby. Boating trips out to the offshore islands can be made from Tenby or Saundersfoot (a visit to Caldey Island to see the monastery is a must!).

There is an unusual Norman church on your doorstep and a medieval palace at Lamphey.

Facilities

From the Owner

"Two Hoots" is easy to find, it is close to all amenities especially the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, just a short walk away. It is served by the Tourist Bus with stops close by. Freshwater East, a magnificent expanse of beach is a pleasant walk, with a pub on the way, or a short drive away. Pembroke itself is a great attraction and Pembroke Dock has many retail outlets including a huge Tesco store with a fuel station. The cottage is secure for the kids to play, it is on a quiet "access only" road which minimises traffic to almost nothing. "Two Hoots" cottage is a renovated and converted outbuilding, formally part of Hodgeston Hall. It was completed around 2006 providing a modern self contained and well equipped holiday home.
