Bungalow | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
With views of Freshwater East Bay, and set in its own gated grounds, this beach cottage has been tastefully modernised throughout to make for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.
There is a large open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area, at the end of which French doors open out onto an extensive and enclosed raised deck with views of the large mature garden, sea and headland. Steps from the deck lead down to the garden. The parking area can accommodate up to 4 cars (or a boat, if you have one).
It is ideally situated within the Pembrokeshire National Park and if you can drag yourselves away from the peaceful setting, it is a short walk down a path and over the sand dunes ("The Burrows") to Freshwater East beach and 5 minutes to join the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. There are many beautiful beaches and castles to explore, not to mention theme parks to entertain the kids, watersports, horse riding and golf, all within walking distance or a short drive.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire is an area of outstanding beauty and has something for everyone. Its mild climate also makes it ideal for visitors all year round.
For families, there are numerous unspoilt beaches, historic castles to explore and a number of theme parks. The National Park also run various activities and events for both adults and children, ranging from rockpool safaris, to crab catching, bat walks and more.
This West Wales county is home to Britain's Only Coastal National Park. Its impressive 186 mile long Coastal path passes 58 beaches and 14 harbours, but don't feel you have to walk it all – the Pembrokeshire walkers bus services cover the entire path and there are a number of smaller circular walks so everyone can sample its stunning scenery and coastal sea life.
For those looking for more adventure, Pembrokeshire offers one of the best outdoor leisure arenas in Europe. There are a host of activities to enjoy, including climbing, kayaking, windsurfing, scuba diving, sailing, surfing and coasteering.
Freshwater East is a sheltered bay in the south west of The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and it is an ideal base from which to explore this stunning county and ensure fun-packed days for the kids, without spending too long in the car. It is also the perfect place to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view!
The historic towns of Tenby and Pembroke, with its magnificent castle, and the castles of Manorbier and Carew are just a short drive away, whilst the nearby National Trust owned Stackpole Estate, home to the famous Bosherston Lily Ponds and the idyllic beaches of Barafundle and Broad Haven South, can be reached by foot along the Coastal Path or via another short drive.
Folly Farm, The Dinosaur Park and Manor House Wildlife Park are all within a 10 mile radius, whilst various activity centres offer coasteering, kayaking and surfing amongst other activities.
The village pub, The Freshwater Inn, with its panoramic views over the beach, and serving meals, is less than 100 yards away.

"Highly recommended accommodation."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property, well presented and spacious.
The garden was very much appreciated by the children and to have a view of the sea was appreciated by us. A much needed relaxing break for all of the family.
Excellent communication from the owner and also she provided a bottle of wine which was a nice thought.
Hope to return again and would highly recommend this property for a holiday.

"Well appointed comfortable property"
The service received was first class, with queries being promptly answered prior to booking. Although from the front the property looks basic, inside it is furnished tastefully,and the kitchen well appointed. Our grandson aged 5 loved the large garden and BBQ but found the dune walk up from the beach strenuous. Although situated next to a pub, there was no extraneous noise,which made for a relaxing break. Only 4 * since it was a pity that the leaves on the trees partially obscured the sea view in the height of summer, otherwise the balcony view would have been great. It was a lovely sun trap.

"Excellent holiday rental, couldn't fault it"
We've been renting self-catering houses in the UK for ten years and this was without doubt the best we've ever stayed in. I'm pretty picky but I couldn't fault it. Booking and communication with the owner were smooth and friendly, the directions were excellent and the key arrangements ideal. The house is in a great location for lots of beaches, castles and other places to visit, and feels peaceful and remote while only being about a five-minute drive from Pembroke. I was slightly worried about having a pub next door, but we didn't experience any disturbance from it at all and we regularly sat out on the decking until 10pm thanks to the glorious weather. The property has been really well modernised to a very high spec. The beds were comfy, the kitchen large and well-equipped, the showers were great, the hot water most definitely hot. And having free wifi was brilliant for checking things like the opening times of attractions and whether the boats to Skomer were running. All those things that sometimes aren't quite right in self-catering houses were perfect in this one. I hope we'll be back for another stay next year.

This property is in a delightful position with a lovely garden and views of Freshwater East.
It has been refurbished to a very high specification and is stylishly furnished and well equipped. It is very warm and comfortable and all appliances(showers included) are of high quality. There has been great attention to detail to enable one to enjoy a relaxing stay, whatever the weather!

"A true home from home, nestled above the bay"
Chequers is a welcoming, well thought out holiday home. Suzanne, the owner, has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into making this a true home from home and it shows. Upon arrival, we found tea, coffee, sugar, milk, juice, cake and wine to welcome us - and after a 4 hour drive, lovely not to have to unpack the car before we had a cuppa! The kitchen was very well equipped, and had more than just one cup and plate for each guest - sounds a little thing but having stayed in many rented holiday homes, it was a real pleasure to be in a kitchen that I could have cooked in! There was plenty of hot water and heating. There were also games, books, DVDs and cards - so we didn't need our bag of games. There was also a comprehensive bundle of leaflets on things to do in the area and we used them to plan our trips. The children loved the garden and thoroughly enjoyed running up and down that each morning - they also enjoyed being able to play on the enclosed deck, when the grass was wet, and we welcomed knowing they were enclosed and safe whilst we had a cuppa inside. The garden would be ideal for any age child, but the decking with gates makes it just that bit safer for those with younger children.
Chequers is located just above Freshwater East Bay, and has stunning views of the bay - really nice to sit in the sun room and watch the sun go down, It's location also makes it very accessible for the beach, although those with very young children might find the walk back up the hill hard going! It is also ideally situated for trips to neighbouring beaches and towns.
We had a great time, and would not hesitate to return, or recommend this property to others. I wish all holiday home owners were as thoughtful as Suzanne!

"Home from home, superb quality."
We had a fabulous time at Chequers and couldn't have asked for more. Lovely welcoming home, heating on when we arrived, late at night and cold which was very comforting. The owner, Suzanne has been really helpful and attentive, a call to check we were ok and had found everything we needed. Will most certainly go back to enjoy again.
