Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Driftwood is a two bedroom holiday home at Freshwater Bay Holiday Village (also known as Trewent Park).
It is clean, comfortable and well equipped with integrated fridge and freezer, 32 inch TV, WiFi etc.
The two bedrooms are a double and a bunk bedroom. The bathroom has a bath with shower over.
In March 2013 the exterior will be upgraded so it will be one of the more attractive holiday properties on the site.
Driftwood is located near to the front of the holiday village so it is only 250 metres from the beach and Coastal Path.
Freshwater East beach is a wide sandy sheltered beach, popular with families and for sea swimming and water sports. The walk to the beach is gentle, so you don't have to carry your beach things up the steep hill. You can go to and from the beach several times a day, if you wish, as it is so conveniently located. You won't need to drive and pay to park the car to get to the coast unless you want to go further afield.
Following the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from the site will take you towards Manorbier and Tenby in one direction or towards Stackpole and Barafundle in the other. Both routes have spectacular scenery. There is a coastal bus service so you have the option to catch the bus back.
Compared with other 3 star graded self catering holiday properties in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Driftwood is very reasonably priced. Many visitors make return visits because the accommodation is good value for money, comfortable and in an excellent location. The accommodation appeals to families, couples, individuals, small groups, international visitors and outdoor sports enthusiasts such as surfers, climbers, walkers and fishermen.
Driftwood is one of a small group of similar holiday homes at Freshwater Bay that are owned and run by Jenny and her sister Vanessa (Pembrokeshire Wales Coastal Holidays) who both live locally and provide a friendly service. Their other holiday properties are also advertised on Holiday Lettings so if you wanted to book more than one for an extended group of family or friends, that would be possible subject to availability.

There are several islands which can be visited, for example Skomer Islands to see the Puffins or peaceful Caldey Island where there is a monastery.
