The Pembrokeshire region

Tucked away in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, in the little village of Landshipping, Waters Edge offers peace and tranquility with birds and views with glorious sunsets looking west across the River Cleddau.

A gate from the garden opens onto a shared mown footpath down to the waters edge.

Wake up to the call of the curlews, walk along the path to the foreshore and search for 'sea asparagus'

Watch wading birds fish (herons and egrets aplenty) and discover this ancient waterway with its numerous mysterious inlets bordered by ancient woodlands.

See The Big House close by - a star of the recent 'Renovation' television series.


Enjoy a visit to the peaceful waterside village of Lawrenny where you can walk along the riverside, sit and watch the boats go by, listen in to the birds and eat at the award winning Quayside Cafe.

Visit Narberth, a little old market town with castle, lots of interesting and individual shops, antiques, pubs, excellent Spanish/Welsh deli and old fashioned award winning butchers, and much more.

Don't miss a visit to Bosherston Lily Ponds (NT), St Govan's Head, S Govan's Chapel & the two stunning beaches of Broad Haven South & Barafundle. If surfing is for you, visit Manobier or Newgale beaches. Walk the Preselli Hills and enjoy an excellent homemade lunch at Nant y Coy Mill cafe. Tenby, Saundersfoot, St Davids, and the tiny old port of Porthgain to name a few are all within easy reach and each worth a day out.
