A holiday property with everything you will need, blending a contemporary interior with some traditional fixtures, all set in a very pleasing environment, a real home from home.

Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, this charming cottage in West Wales is ideal for families or a group of friends who love to escape to the coast. Set in Jameston village just over a mile from Manorbier, where you’ll find a castle, a beautiful beach with sand dunes, as well as interesting shops. The thoughtful and generous owner has ensured great attention to detail at the property, so you’ll find everything you need to hand, and less packing to do! Walkers and cyclists are perfectly placed to explore the beauty of the South Pembrokeshire countryside, and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Head along the gravel drive, and step into the welcoming porch with its brickwork frame and handsome timber vault. Step inside where beautiful interiors await in soothing coastal hues and calm neutrals with relaxed pops of colour. The inviting living room with its garden views is the perfect place to relax with leather sofas, Smart TV, PlayStation 3, board games, and a toasty wood burner with a supply of logs. Rustle up tasty brunches in the well-equipped kitchen which features a dual-fuel Range oven, and enjoy family time together in the dining area. When slumber calls, you’ll find three ground floor bedrooms, a king-size en-suite, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, plus a family bathroom. Upstairs, there’s a double bedroom (note, restricted height ceiling here) which enjoys views out towards the garden and fields beyond. Throw open the French doors to the enclosed rear garden which has a lawned area, and a raised stone patio with a seated BBQ patio for al fresco dining on sunny afternoons. You’ll also find a handy utility room outside with extra space to store bicycles, surfboards and sports gear. Off-road parking is available for four cars, and there’s a shop and a pub with food within walking distance.

A lovely stay at the contented cottage. We dined in most days and the cottage has everything needed to do this, very homely and spacious. Perfect for our elderly Mum to get around with her mobility wheels. We enjoyed days out to Tenby and Saundersfoot and managed to sit out in the garden most days enjoying the lovely views. Would highly recommend.

This is a lovely house, extremely well equipped with everything you need for cooking, playing, and even for the beach which is very close. Manorbier beach is 15-20 minutes walk away, and Swan Lake Beach (not accessible by car) is beautiful and only 20-25 minutes easy walk over the fields. Spacious house, lovely fully enclosed garden, superb (gas) BRead moreBQ, and very comfortably furnished. Hosts are fantastic--accessible but unobtrusive. Highly recommended. Hide
