On the edge of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Gardeners Lodge is a restored detached holiday cottage, centrally located between the historic market town of Pembroke and the coastal hamlet of Stackpole Quay. Situated on a working farm, adjacent to the owners’ home, the cottage lies just a 2-minute walk from the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside, with many bridle ways and footpaths, from where you can explore the hamlet of Stackpole, Stackpole Quay, Trewent and the surfing beach of Freshwater East. This beautiful cottage has been furnished to a very good standard, with an open plan living area and a sumptuous bedroom with an en-suite shower room. In an evening, you can enjoy a barbecue in the private enclosed courtyard and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine.
A short drive away is the renowned Barafundle Bay, a National Trust owned cove which has been voted one of the best 12 beaches in the world. Here you can relax at this secluded bay and enjoy the golden sand between your toes and bathe in the crystal clear waters of the Pembrokeshire coast. On your walk back, stop off at the café for some fresh dressed crab and freshly brewed coffee. Further west you will uncover the sublime St Govan’s Chapel, a tiny hermit’s cell built into the cliff at St Govan’s. Count the steps down and up again as legend has it that the steps are never the same number.
A visit to Pembroke is not to be missed. Steeped in ancient history and the birthplace of Henry VII, Pembroke Castle stands proud over the town, set along the back of the river estuary where you can explore the labyrinth of passageways and towers. Travelling east, the famous walled town of Tenby is only a 30-minute drive away and is ideal for walks on the beach. Explore the many antique shops and art galleries along the cobbled streets, and in an evening, enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants specialising in fresh local seafood and locally grown organic produce. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
