House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
From the distinctive hedge cut in the shape of waves and the off road parking area for 3 cars, steps lead down to this delightful, detached cottage. Comfortably furnished throughout in a contemporary style, the attractive and interesting decorations include African and Eastern items from the owner's travels and original local art work.
The accommodation briefly comprises an attractive entrance hallway which leads on the same level to : - a light lounge/diner with Wi-Fi, 42" TV, DVD player and a music centre, with games, DVDs, CDs and books for guests' use during their stay; a kitchen with a small breakfast bar, electric cooker, fridge and freezer; two double bedrooms, one with a shower unit and small TV and both with patio doors to the outside decked area; one good sized twin bedroom which could be converted to a double; a bathroom with bath and overhead shower, wash basin and toilet; a laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer; a small cloakroom with wash basin and toilet; and a tile floored pantry / storage room with storage for coats, shoes, etc..
Doors from the kitchen and lounge lead down one step into the conservatory with doors opening to a large decked area with dining furniture and a BBQ provided. This is a lovely spot to enjoy an alfresco meal on a summer's evening. Bench seats on the decking and in a paved lower level garden area allow guests to enjoy the peaceful views over the valley and to watch the local birds and wildlife. Around the cottage are stepped paths. There is oil fired central heating with radiators in every room. Bath towels for hire at £5 per person per week. Electricity & Oil: £20 per week Oct - April, free May - Sept. Pets are welcome (but no cats please!). Valley View is a no smoking property.
Valley View is an ideal all year round holiday base for families, couples or friends to get away from it all. Peacefully situated on the side of a wooded valley, the cottage is within 1 minute's walk of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and only 5 - 10 minutes' downhill walk from the centre of the popular village of Little Haven, with its picturesque harbour, sandy cove, pubs and restaurants.
Little Haven can also be reached via the Coast Path allowing you to watch for peregrine falcons, fulmars, gannets, seals, ravens, whitethroat and even otters and dolphins as you walk. Heading south will take you via the cliff top path to the Goultrop Roads SSSI and stunning views over St Brides Bay.
When the tide is low you can walk round the headland from Little Haven to the long golden sands and surfing beach of Broad Haven. Here there are more pubs, restaurants, a well stocked Londis store and a water sports kayak and board hire centre. Why not try your hand at one of the water sports on offer or a ride on the beach from Nolton Haven.
Further afield you can explore the wealth of archaeology, history, geology and natural history in places like the Preseli Hills; the offshore islands of Skokholm, Skomer and Ramsey; the tiny cathedral city of St Davids; the Napoleonic forts and maritime history of Milford Haven; Fishguard and Newport.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Washed by the warm Gulf Stream, West Wales and Pembrokeshire enjoys a milder climate than many parts of the UK with snow and frost only rarely affecting the coastal areas. This warmer water occasionally brings unexpected visitors to the Pembrokeshire coast including basking sharks, turtles, dolphins, and even whales. Pembrokeshire is on the "Dolphin Coast" with sightings of dolphins and porpoises common from boats or the land particularly in the areas of Jacks Sound, Ramsey Sound, Strumble Head, Dinas Island and Fishguard.
Pembrokeshire is known across the world for its natural, wild beauty, its stunning Coastal Path and offshore islands, its richness of wildlife and wealth of historic (505 designated Ancient Monuments), archaeological and geological sites. Some say it is like Cornwall but without the people. Personally, I think it is better than Cornwall, but then I would! The diversity of its natural features includes the heather moorlands of the Preseli Hills with the remains of hill forts and burial chambers, the sea cliffs from which can be viewed falcons, dolphins, fulmar, gannets, etc., seabird rich islands, ancient woodlands, sand dunes and wide sandy beaches, rocky storm beaches where the grey seals breed, and wild river valleys, the haunt of otters, kingfishers, salmon and trout, including the beautiful sea trout (sewin).
Nestling in the sheltered sweep of St Brides Bay, Little Haven is an old fishing village which still retains its traditional charm whilst having an excellent range of hospitality providers including 3 pubs with restaurants, a further specialist restaurant and a craft shop. The village is on the 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path from which there are wonderful views across the bay to Solva, the St Davids peninsular and Skomer Island, and the magical hanging oak woodland of the Goultrop Roads SSSI can be reached. There is an abundance of things to do. Go fishing from a boat, kayak, beach or rocks - mackerel are plentiful in the Summer. Take a pony out for a ride along the beach from nearby Nolton Haven. Hire a kayak or board from Broad Haven and ride the waves on the beach or paddle out to Stack Rock with its resident sea birds and seals. Watch for birds and marine wildlife from the cliff paths - peregrine falcons, fulmars, gannets, Manx shearwaters, seals, and even dolphins and otters can all be seen locally if you are patient and lucky. There are a number of wonderful inland walks if you want a change from the beach.
Nearby Broad Haven which can be reached either by road, or, at low tide, by walking round by the beach, has a number of low key pubs, restaurants, bars and two fish and chips takeaways; a well stocked Londis supermarket and Post Office; craft and beach gear shops; and a water sports shop and hire centre.

"Great location, full of character, comfortable and memorable stay."
The property lived up to our expectations. David and Lynne have obviously put a lot of thought into creating a lovely holiday home. We travelled with our two teenagers and dog and all loved the week t… More
Thank you for your warm comments and the confirmation that we succeeded in meeting your hopes and expectations and that you enjoyed your stay. You would be welcome for a return visit at any time! I agree that Valley View makes a cosy and homely base during the winter months as well as is confirmed by the many satisfied guests who have stayed there out of season. Little Haven takes on a different and equally charming character over the winter and Valley View provides a perfect base to return to after a bracing walk along the beach or the cliffs.
