The cottages are all well away from the road and have their own pretty and secluded gardens, fully equipped with furniture. In the front field is a large car parking area and driveways leading to The Old Farmhouse and Swallow Cottage (there is also ample space by both of these cottages for storing bicycles, boats, trailers etc) and a large grassed area with goalposts - ideal for team games. In the central courtyard area stands the Games Room - a renovated barn with its own woodburner for a wet evening and an old railway carriage which houses logs and recycling facilities. The Play area is behind the cottages and surrounded by fields - where children can enjoy some peace and get on with some serious play!. We built the pool a few years ago in an adjoining field, it is banked all around with lots of planting - a sheltered suntrap with a low timber building at one end to house both the solar panels and generous size sauna.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Little Loveston is on the edge of The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park – with 186 miles of coast path, coves and sandy beaches as well as the Preseli Mountains with great views of the counties’ peninsular and where the bluestones at Stonehenge come from. The coastline varies from rugged cliffs in the North to long sandy beaches in the South and West and includes Barafundle beach, voted one of the best 10 beaches in the world by National Geographical.
The area is steeped in history with an iron age settlement rebuilt at Castell Henllys and the many castles built following the Norman conquest, built to create the Landsker line and ‘little England beyond Wales’. Pembrokeshire is famous for its wildlife with boat trips to the islands to see the bird reserves as well as marine life such as seals and porpoises.
There are many facilities offering opportunities for fishing, horse riding, golf, watersports as well as the tourist attractions such as Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm, Heatherton County Park, Manor Park Zoo, Castles and Gardens.
A great place from which to explore the counties beaches, attractions, waterways and countryside. Little Loveston is also on the Landsker trail so there is good walking and cycling from the door. The immediate surroundings have been designated a Site of Specific Scientific Interest because of its rich and varied plant and wildlife and we are also close the the Daugleddau Estuary (Pembrokeshires Secret Waterways) and the ancient woodlands at Canaston and Minwear. The cottages are well equipped with information brochures and walking maps.
The beautiful sandy beaches and pretty towns, Tenby and Pembroke, of South Pembrokeshire can be reached in 20 minutes and the more rugged coastline of the North and West are 45 minutes away. For excellent local produce we have Yerbeston Farm Shop 100metres up the road and Tessas organic veg stall by Cresswell Quay. The lively market town of Narberth, with all manner of shops, cafes and galleries is 10 minutes drive away and our local is the Cresselly Arms, a traditional pub serving ale from the jug down on the waters edge – well known for its setting and summer barbecues and duckrace - a great place to watch the sun go down.
The big family attractions of Oakwood Theme Park and Folly Farm are only 10 minutes drive away and many other visitor attractions such as Heatherton Country Park, Manor Park Zoo, The Dinosaur Park and Pembroke, Carew and Manorbier Castles – all well within 20 minutes drive.
Then it’s great to come back to Little Loveston at the end of the day for some peace and quiet!
