With views of Freshwater East Bay, and set in its own gated grounds, this beach cottage has been tastefully modernised throughout to make for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. There is a large open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area, at the end of which French doors open out onto an extensive and enclosed raised deck with views of the large mature garden, sea and headland. Steps from the deck lead down to the garden. The parking area can accommodate up to 4 cars (or a boat, if you have one). It is ideally situated within the Pembrokeshire National Park and if you can drag yourselves away from the peaceful setting, it is a short walk down a path and over the sand dunes ('The Burrows') to Freshwater East beach and 5 minutes to join the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

Everything you need. Next to a pub but surprisingly quiet. Walk down to the beach but bit of a climb back. Makes the beer taste even better though when you get back. Really lovely place we would rent again.

About the neighbourhood
Freshwater East is a sheltered bay in the south west of The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and it is an ideal base from which to explore this stunning county and ensure fun-packed days for the kids, without spending too long in the car. It is also the perfect place to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view! The historic towns of Tenby and Pembroke, with its magnificent castle, and the castles of Manorbier and Carew are just a short drive away, whilst the nearby National Trust owned Stackpole Estate, home to the famous Bosherston Lily Ponds and the idyllic beaches of Barafundle and Broad Haven South, can be reached by foot along the Coastal Path or via another short drive. Folly Farm, The Dinosaur Park and Manor House Wildlife Park are all within a 10 mile radius, whilst various acti...
