Location description from owner
The Wales region
Pembrokeshire must surely be one of the most beautiful and varied counties in Britain and Haroldston Farmhouse is well placed to explore all of it. The coastline is rugged and imposing and is accessible along almost its whole length via the 187 mile long coastal path. This provides unforgettable walking holidays on what many believe is one of the World's premier long distance routes. In 2010, National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire as joint runner up in its top 20 of World's best coastal destinations! A quotation, from the Daily Telegraph, tells the story very eloquently: “Pembrokeshire is a nature lover's paradise, with miles of sandy beaches, like Cornwall, but without the people.” Throughout the year but particularly during the season, the Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus Service runs a series of shuttles, collecting hikers from the end of their walks & returning them to their cars (or vice Versa). Alternatively, there are plenty of mapped out circular walks; see Pembrokeshire Coast, Walks in the Park.There are numerous beautiful sandy beaches, many of which remain peaceful, even in high season. Marloes Sands is totally unspoilt and must be one of the loveliest anywhere, yet is only 12 miles from Haroldston.The coast is dotted with havens of all kinds, from the picturesque little harbours at Solva and Porth Gain to the busy industrial ports at Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock.Regular ferries to Ireland are available at Fishguard and Pembroke Dock. The crossing to Rosslare is inexpensive and takes only 4 hours, so aPicture of Puffin day trip is both practical and economical.For those on a bird watching holiday, regular boat trips are available to Pembrokeshire's island reserves, most notably, Skomer, Ramsey and Caldey. In the spring and early summer, the islands are worth a visit for the enchanting puffins alone.The county also has the only coastal national park in the UK. For more information, please also see RSPB home page and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.Turning inland, the Preseli Hills contains a feast of beauty spots and wide vistas, from sweeping moorlands, to exquisite valleys; from mysterious forests to sparkling lakes. Even here, there is plenty for the historian. The stone circle, at Pentre Ifan, is constructed from the same locally quarried stone as is Stonehenge.Driving in Pembrokeshire is a real pleasurable experience, particularly for those harassed commuters who are only too familiar with grid locked roads. Even in high season, traffic jams are rare and any minor queue disperses quickly.Pembrokeshire is endowed with numerous and diverse things to do, which caters for all age groups, occasions and preferences.
Haverfordwest is a bustling market town, ideally situated at the centre of Pembrokeshire's road network. This is a great location for holidaymakers because it means that all of the county's main attractions are no more than a short drive away.Its most attractive pedestrianised shopping centre, straddles the pretty Cleddau river, containing a range of local and national shops. Much of the precinct is under cover so is ideal for occupying a wet afternoon.The retail park contains a number of large national shops, such as Morrisons, Marks & Spencers, Boots, Currys, Next, Laura Ashley, Sports Direct, Wickes, Homebase, Pets At Home and Halfords. There is a Tesco Extra supermarket (24 hour) on the other side of town which is just a mile away from Haroldston. Aldi and Lidl are also represented in the town. A popular farmers' market is held on Riverside, every Friday.The town centre has several pubs, cafes and a thriving night club which cater for all tastes.Haverfordwest CastleThe centre piece of Haverfordwest is the castle which was first established in the early 12th century. This is surrounded by quaint mediaeval streets, although most of the building facades date from a later era. The town, itself, celebrated its 900th anniversary in 2010.For the fitness enthusiast, the town has a brand new, well equipped leisure centre, which is just 1 mile away from Haroldston. The Leisure Centre has a large swimming pool, with a moveable floor, which enables the depth to be adjusted to suit differing events. There are also 2 associated children's 'beach' pools. The well equipped gym has a full range of state of the art equipment ideal for a vigorous workout or game of squash. The dance studios have a regular programme of classes, such as spin, body pump, step and pilates.For those who are enjoying a walking holiday, access to beautiful and extensive riverside walks is only half a mile from Haroldston. The Western Cleddau section of the National Coastal Park is within walking distance at Little Milford. There is also a dedicated off road cycle path that starts near to Haroldston and covers the 11 miles to Neyland Marina.

“A lovely farmhouse in an amazing setting, perfect for large family groups.”
Haroldston Farmhouse is large farmhouse with lots of rooms and space for 12 people. The games room was a big hit with everyone. It was great for the whole group to be able to sit together at the large table in the kitchen and also have their own space if they wanted. It was good for the family dog as there was a big garden.
We're delighted that you've had a good holiday and that you enjoyed our house, its facilities and the space it offers.
“Great for Family reunions”
This was our second stay in Haroldston Farmhouse and as before we were not disappointed. We were a family of 10; there was plenty of space for us all and a lovely big dining table with room for us all with ease. Martin (the owner) is a gentleman and a fine host; our next family reunion will be held at Haroldston Farmhouse if available. Thank you Martin
Thank for using us for your reunion again - we are very honoured! Thanks also for taking time from your busy schedule to write your review - much appreciated. I haven't been called a gentleman for a long time - I must still be one!
“back again--everything superb-will be back again next year”
we were a party of 10 plus 2 toddlers.just right for party this size. The central location in the Pembroke national park make it easy to reach all the attractions beaches and beautiful coastal towns and villages in around half an hour. It is also,from a self catering point,very handy to have supermarkets and shops just ten minutes away in Haverfordwest. The accomodation ia very clean and spacious with 3 showers and 2 baths and a games room with billiards and darts for nice social evenings together without having to go out. Cooking wise, a very large oven adequate for a party of our size and more than sufficient crockery and a large dishwasher to finnish it all off. A nice piece of grass for any dogs to have a run around. Kitchen with long table ideal for meals and also two lounges,one with TV with video.
It was great to see you again. We're delighted that you're not tired of us yet! Thanks very much for your continued custom and for taking the time to write us a complimentary and informative review.
“A great family experience.”
This is our second visit to the farmhouse.Even with an extended family & a number of dogs the farmhouse was comfortable, roomy & very well appointed. Nice touches included a generous welcome pack & even towels for the dogs. We will certainly be back.
Thanks again for your second visit to Haroldston. It is always a special pleasure to get repeat bookings which proves that we must be getting something right! Thanks also for your kind review and, as you've suggested, we do hope that you will come to see us yet again.
“Well provided and ideal for our purpose.”
We were a group of ex-work colleagues ( 6 in total) so had plenty of space with a room each and one to spare. We look for a quiet setting and quality accommodation and found both. A games room with darts and pool table is an added bonus. The various sights to see in the area are easily travelled to and the literature provided by the owners was excellent in this respect. There is a small general store within 10 mins walk which covers all emergency shopping, and a large Tesco 7 mins drive away for everything else.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a generous & positive review.Thank you also for pointing out the convenience of our farmhouse's location as well as its peaceful and rural environment. We do hope that you will visit us again.
Stayed here for a weekend with my family, 6 adults and 7 children ages 1 to 10 years. All had a fabulous time, the children loved playing hide and seek, both the adults and children alike enjoyed the games room. Lovely comfy beds, hot showers, spotlessly clean and well equipped, highly recommended, We will definitely return
Thank you very much for your smashing, upbeat and generous review. As always, it is really gratifying to know that our visitors have enjoyed our house and have not been disappointed. As you've suggested, we do hope that you will come again - you'll always be welcome!
“Great place to stay”
Very clean, tidy farmhouse. Lots of space to spread out. Owners introduced themselves and then left us alone unless we needed them, which we didn't. Everything we needed was there and more. The house is up a very quiet lane outside of Haverfordwest. The only thing you can hear are the birds. Some of the family walked into Haverfordwest a couple of times and used the new Leisure Centre swimming pool etc which they said was excellent.
Thank you very much for taking the time to post generous and complimentary feedback and for pointing out some of the assets of Haroldston Farmhouse. We do try to maintain a 'sociability balance' inasmuch that some of our visitors like to chat, whilst others prefer to be left alone. We're pleased that we got it right in your case.
“Met all the needs of 12 people from 13 to 65 with ease.”
An absolute delight from the moment we opened the door and explored the rooms. Space and equipment to keep us all occupied. Within a short drive from some lovely beaches and shops. In fact exceeded our expectations and we all hope to return sometime this year. If, by then, access to NARNIA via any wardrobe is in place then that would just about make it perfect!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a nice up beat and complimentary review. It is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, Ikea tell me that they are currently out of stock of Narnia wardrobes:( As suggested, we do hope that you will manage to return sometime in the very near future.
“A gem of a property”
Having viewed and been tempted by this property a few times on line, our ever-extending family was the perfect way to 'try it out'. We have visited Pembrokeshire many times over the past 10 years and our repeat visits probably sum up our feelings about it. This property was a wonderful find. With 6 adults, 6 children and three dogs, it was amazing how much room we still had. The farmhouse was well equipped, spotlessly clean and yet, despite its size, still felt very cosy. As you might imagine, the games room was a huge plus. The dogs loved the large garden and the adults loved the log fire in the November evenings. The nearness to the town was a bonus which meant we could treat ourselves to a 'take-away' on one evening. The welcome from the owners was warm and yet not intrusive in any way. The 'welcome' gifts were also well received - though who ate all the welsh cakes is still a mystery! Many thanks to Martin and Jeannie.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely generous review. We're delighted that you finally 'took the plunge' to visit haroldston and that we didn't disappoint! We do hope that we will see you and your delightful doggies again in the not too distant future.
“Give it a go”
Very good value for money, a high standard of facilities, great for a couple of families or (as we did) a group of blokes on a University reunion. The owners were great, happy to help if there was a problem but not at all intrusive. Having a games room makes a big difference if the weather is bad. The log fire took us back a few years (in a good way) A bit of a walk to the pub but the locals were friendly enough. Haverford West isn't a bad little town, and only 20 mins drive to the coast. Everyones tastes are different, I thought it was a great set up, as did the rest of the party. Even if you are picky, you could certainly do a lot, lot worse.
Thank you very much for finding the time to write us a nice positive review. Whilst the majority of our visitors are families, we do receive a fair 'smattering' of reunions, walking groups and milestone celebrations. It is gratifying to know that Haroldston appeals to such a wide market. Should you plan a reunion again in the future, we do hope that you will consider Haroldston again.
