Freshwater East is located just 4 miles outside the historic town of Pembroke, which has a variety of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Set right in the heart of the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, it is a truly unspoilt rural seaside location. The long beach, sheltered by sand dunes, is perfect for idyllic family days at the seaside. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, bodyboarding and beach games, or follow the coastal path for fabulous walks with spectacular scenery. Head east to the pretty and remote Swanlake Bay, or west to Stackpole Quay with its historic walled gardens and cosy café. History enthusiasts will love both Upton Castle which stands within gardens spanning over 35 acres and the magnificent Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, both within 8 miles. Folly Farm and Zoo, 10 miles away, has a variety of rides and many fascinating animals, whilst Heatherton World of Activities is within 8 miles and offers carting, paintballing and tree top trails.

Sleeping six plus a baby, this bright holiday home is furnished to a high standard. With two verandas complete with seating, and sea views from one of the bedrooms it certainly makes the most of the seaside location. Climb the steps leading to the rear sun deck and entrance door, and head through to the generous open-plan living space. The lounge area is spacious with large sofas where you can spend an evening watching a movie, listening to music on the Hi-Fi or iPod. The dining table seats six, so meals can be sociable affairs at any time of the day and night. Open the door to the veranda on warm nights and enjoy the sea breeze. The kitchen is equipped with an electric hob, oven, fridge, small freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. Both the shower room and the family bathroom are on the ground floor, with the bathroom having a separate shower which is useful for larger parties. Upstairs, the two twin bedrooms are simply yet pleasantly furnished and also give glimpses of the sea. The double bedroom has both an en-suite shower room and a balcony with a sea view where a glass of wine can be enjoyed after a busy day.

Outside, enjoy al fresco dining on the veranda morning, noon and night. There is parking for one car and the beach within 200 metres, with a shop and restaurant 2 miles away.
