The Pembrokeshire region

Pembrokeshire is famed for having the only coastal National Park within Britain, with some of the country's finest beaches & countryside. South Pembrokeshire also has many magnificent castles: Pembroke (birthplace of Henry VII), Manorbier & Carew are all within 5 miles.

There's plenty to do in this fascinating county: walking, riding, fishing, golf, water sports and boat trips being just a few. The award winning theme parks of Oakwood, Folly Farm & Heatherton are within a few miles, whilst a visit to the Monastery on Caldey Island is a must. Cycle routes are available on request.


A narrow lane winds from Hodgeston to the Pembrokeshire Costal Footpath, with spectacular views of Freshwater East Bay, Caldey and Lundy Islands in the distance. Freshwater beach is only a 10 min drive, is easily accessible and has golden sand and superb walks. Manorbier beach, also a 10 min drive is a well known surfing mecca and there is an outdoor pursuit’s centre at Freshwater for the more adventurous.

You can catch the coastal cruiser bus to the idyllic Barafundle Bay or Bosherston Lily Ponds, which is a great place to fish. If golf is your sport, there are 3 courses - the nearest being just 5 miles away. Island visits and coastal boat trips are available from Tenby or Saundersfoot.

There are various places to eat within a mile to Hodgeston, ranging from a traditional 13th Century pub at Jameston, to a bistro at Lamphey. Many offer value for money meals, takeaways, and welcome children.

"Peaceful, spacious, comfortable, relaxing, all you could need and plenty of rooks!!"

Rooks retreat was fab. We got there a little earlier than check in and met the housekeeper who was warm and accommodating. The cottage is plenty big enough with everything you need. It's beautifu… More

"Excellent Holiday Cottage and Very Well Equipped."

Really good cottage. Comfortable,cosy,clean,and had everything one could wish for.Full
marks for having thought of every possible need. As a pair of pensioners we "rattled about" in this spacious property. We both commented on how good it would be for a family, with a good kitchen, washing machine,tumble drier and dish washer etc. Three
showers etc etc also a rear garden with barbecue, and a very safe location front or back
for children. It would also be very suitable for an Autumn/Winter break as it is a really
cosy cottage with a very efficient central heating system. Hodgeston itself is little more
than a hamlet, but there are numerous beaches and attractions on the doorstep.
