The private garden is beautifully landscaped with each having a variety of shrubs and plants which add colour - ideal for a relaxed sundowner, breakfast on the terrace or a barbecue at any time of day. There is a garage at the rear of the property for your car with parking available in the street. Poppy cottage boasts lovely circular walks nearby with quaint cafes and bars all within a 5 minute stroll away. Pembroke is situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which boasts a variety of spectacular beaches and breathtaking scenery. The coast path, beaches and nearby woodlands provide excellent opportunity for recreational walking or trekking. There are also opportunities for fishing, canoeing, surfing, cycling and golfing as well as sight seeing and relaxing. The award winning Barafundle Bay is only 6 miles away and is a gorgeous sheltered sandy cove, voted as 1 of the great 10 beaches in the world. It is accessed by a 15 minute walk, by boat or kayak which ensures it retains an exclusive feel and as such it is never really busy. Freshwater East, Manorbier and Angle are all within a 8 mile radius whilst the more rugged Freshwater West is only 6 miles away. Freshwater West is a world famous surf beach and the setting for the latest Harry Potter film and Robin Hood. All of our beaches are prized for their surf and are great places to visit all year round. Pembrokeshire and West Wales offers visitors a unique and varied holiday experience. For those wishing to enjoy traditional seaside atmosphere there is famous Tenby and Saundersfoot which bustle with activity in the summer months and again towards Christmas and New year with the Boxing Day and New year swims, great fun for swimmers and spectators alike. Cliffs, sand dunes and tiny coves are scattered all along the coast from Poppit Sands to Pendine, approximately 180 miles of coastline. Some beaches are secluded with hidden or limited access, whilst others are more visible and therefore more popular ...but never really crowded, part of the benefits of being at the tip of West Wales. Bosheston Lily Ponds is an international important nature reserve providing wildlife habitat for otters, waterfowl, herons and dragonflies. Large pike can be spotted basking underneath overhanging weeping willow trees. Circular lakeside paths meander around the Ponds which were created as a folly on the Stackpole Estate 200 years ago and fabulous waterlilies float atop the water from May through to August. Another safe family bathing beach - Broadhaven South beach - can form part of the day's outing, as can the tiny harbour of Stackpole Quay. For families and young adults there is a great selection of activities including the renowned Oakwoods Theme Park, Folly farm, Heatherton Adventure Park and Manor House Animal Park. There are also numerous historic castles in the area, the most famous being Pembroke Castle, a Norman fortress situated in the heart of the town, which is a treat for children to explore and learn at the same time. Driving for a leisurely 30-45 minutes gives access to the City of St Davids with its famous cathedral. Please email Sue for more information or clarification of the holiday on offer.
