A simply fantastic beachside retreat set in the sand dunes at Freshwater East, well placed for trips to Broad Haven, Barafundle, Saundersfoot and Tenby if you can ever bear to leave this coastal gem.

Experience peace and solitude in this beautiful Pembrokeshire beauty spot, exploring some of the coastal path’s most stunning scenery and admirable beaches. Just moments from dog-friendly shores, this one-storey chalet is ideally suited to families or small groups. Sleeping six guests and two dogs, the holiday home is both spacious and snug, offering room for everyone to unwind without getting on top of one another. Mosey to the village pub or pick up essentials in the local shop before heading home to put your feet up.

Presenting high ceilings and bright and cheerful decor, the open-plan living space here couldn’t be a more calming place in which to unwind. Laminate flooring throughout ensures that muddy boots and paw prints don’t become an issue, whilst a gated patio area outside promises space for kids and pets to stretch their legs. Prepare meals in the sociable kitchen and sit down together at the dining area, before sinking into comfy sofas with the wood burner flickering away. As the night grows darker, three inviting bedrooms present the best place to catch forty winks and dream of seaside adventures yet to come.

Along with sandy shores just a wander away, the further Pembrokeshire Coast National Park promises wonders of seaside adventures to be explored. Set off and follow the coastal path for unbeatable walks with the dog, perhaps following the route to the glorious Barafundle Beach (3 miles). An ever-popular tourist destination is nearby Tenby (9 miles), a bustling town to which families return year upon year. Take day trips to Caldey Island to see the puffins or explore Tenby Castle. History buffs will relish spotting castles at Manorbier (4 miles), Carew (6 miles) and Pembroke (4.5 miles), whilst animal lovers will adore a day at Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo (11.5 miles).

Ali did a great job of making sure we had everything ahead of our arrival, and the bottle of wine, milk and Welsh cakes were a thoughtful gesture - as it was late when we arrived. The house was lovely, perfect for two plus our cocker spaniel, and just 2 minutes to the beach down the hill, and with a huge secure garden The only thing was it's too weRead moret in October to hang clothes outside, and there is also no mobile signal - but good internet.
