We have been holidaying in the area for 30 years and this is the nicest, most well appointed large house we have rented. It had everything you could want for a multi generational group. It was a bonus to have a separate room for the children to use and the older children loved the large TV during the Euros. The walk into Wisemans Bridge is fairly lRead moreevel and well paved, an easy walk with a pushchair. There is a bus service that connects Saundersfoot, Tenby & Stepaside, Great. Hide
