  • "Swanlake lodge is in the most ideal location - it is the closest I have ever stayed to the beach, literally over the road."

    Because it is on the East side it was wonderful to wake up early, walk over to the beach and watch the sunrise. A perfect start to the day! The property is tastefully decorated and has recently been improved with en suite bathrooms in each room which is so handy. I love the heated towel rails!! The owners have thought about everything! Very clean well planned holiday home. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Swanlake lodge very much."

    As a party of 3 retired ladies we very much appreciated the 3 ensuite bedrooms. The location is fairly rural right by the beach, great for families and dogs. The lodge was very well equipped but some fold up garden chairs would have been very useful to use at the rear where the afternoon sun was. I would book again if I wanted to stay in the Pembrokeshire area.

  • "After a long journey with a full car a welcome tray would have been appreciated."

    Also, only provided with one tea towel and no dish cloths, a bread knife would have been handy too. However, the lodge itself was perfect for our needs, so much so, that we have already booked our return for two weeks next year.

    The lodge was fantastic. It had all the facilities we needed and more. It was spacious and clean with wonderful views. We found it safe and child friendly for our 17 month old and in a perfect location, next the the beach and a coastal path.

  • "We loved staying at Swanlake Lodge."

    There’s everything you need there and it was very clean inside. It’s very spacious. We didn’t need the 4 bath/shower rooms but would be great for larger family. Having Netflix & Sky was a bonus you don’t often get

    Excellent places to eat and drink within 10-20 minutes drive, or there's Jacks on your doorstep with excellent food and drink and very sociable atmosphere. Would I go again ? absolutely. R Edwards

  • "Great location and house had everything we needed."

    Good stocked kitchen and layout with back door and shower room when coming in from beach. Couldn’t find hairdryer! Gave up! Luckily took my own. Only thing was house needed a deep clean. Surface clean on first sight but if you looked closer in showers and edges of floors and kitchen not great. Bathroom shelf and shaving light broken in main bedroom with balcony. On the whole though a great place to holiday and would book again. Beds comfy and bedding and towels provided were good. Great layout for seating with family in the lounge.

  • "The lodge is absolutely wonderful- and it’s distance between the beach and Jacks (the bar) is perfect for lazy days."

    Definitely going back! It was a little bit dirty on arrival, but it’s so hard to clean up sand! Perhaps a more thorough check of the kitchen areas / draws etc x tip top! An absolute winner of a holiday!

    Many thanks for your feedback which we really appreciate.This feedback has been passed on to the owner which will help with future bookings. Property Owner

    Second visit to this lodge and sadly some of the cleaning,especially the vents in the showers let it down (very dirty) this time. Our daughter and family love the lodge as it is dog friendly and very suitable for there 4 year old son. It is set on a nice site and only takes minutes to walk to and from the beach which was great as we had brilliant weather, will be back.

    We were very fortunate to have good weather every day. The house itself is warm and very comfortable with good facilities, and in a quiet part of the holiday park.

  • "A lovely spacious lodge which was ideal for 4 adults, a toddler and a dog, the gates were very useful and the front decking really sunny."

    A rear decking would have been a bonus to take advantage of the afternoon sunshine as there was no view of the beach or sea. The front decking looked very attractive when we dressed it up with colourful flags for a 65th birthday surprise. We had a great meal at the Freshwater Inn which had lovely views. A memorable week, thank you.

  • "The lodge was absolutely lovely!"

    Right across from the beach, in a lovely location. It was very peaceful and quiet. The lodge had more than what we expected or needed with plenty of space, 3 showers and a bath, big bedrooms and a big sitting room. It was very homely and we’d definitely come back again!

The property

Pembroke 3.9 miles.

Within the delightful Trewent Park, a collection of holiday homes in the village of Freshwater East in South Wales, find Swanlake Lodge, a three-bedroom property offering charming accommodation for a family holiday to the coast.

Suited for a seaside retreat you can enjoy the delights of being just a two minute walk to the beach and close to nearby larger towns, like the historic Pembroke.

Come in from a day at the beach to an inviting sitting area, have all six of you take a seat and relax before the TV and settle in for a quiet evening.

Decide who's cooking and move into the kitchen and begin preparation for the evening meal, keep the chef company by sitting at the breakfast bar, with a host of appliances to make use of including an electric oven, a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher for a quick clean-up.

Serve up your creation at the dining table opposite the sitting area, and take stock of the day’s events before planning what's next.

Move upstairs to find the three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of two king-size rooms, each with an en-suite shower room, while the last bedroom is a twin and has an en-suite bathroom.

Downstairs also has a family shower room as well.

When you're ready to venture out head first to Freshwater Beach when the weather is good, delight in making sandcastles with little ones with the golden sands, taking a dip in the sea and exploring the dunes which back the beach.

Walk along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and access the remote Swanlake Bay, a shingle beach which reveals beautiful golden sands and rock pools at low tide, it makes for a peaceful and quiet haven.

For a more bustling environment visit the county town of Pembroke, and walk around the historic Pembroke Castle before exploring the waterfront of the estuary and finding somewhere good to enjoy a well-deserved meal out.

Swanlake Lodge will be a lovely break away from a busy life in south Wales, with beaches, towns and countryside to entertain.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Tenby 10 miles; Haverfordwest 11 miles.

A medieval walled town, Pembroke is home to a magnificent castle, which was the birthplace of Henry Tudor. In an idyllic location, on the river estuary, this historic town has an abundance of shops, quaint tea rooms and restaurants. The stunning Pembrokeshire coastline is nearby, with its award-winning beaches and great walks along the coastal path. There is a popular cycle route that starts here, taking you through the pretty village of St Florence and then on to Tenby. Bosherton is just 4 miles away, with its beautiful lily ponds and the popular St Govan’s Inn, serving locally-sourced food and fine ales. St Govan’s Chapel is built into the cliff face, where you can take in lovely views from Stack Rocks, or surfers can head to Freshwater West, which featured in one of the Harry Potter films. Within easy reach are Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm, where you can feed molly lambs or enjoy a tractor ride, Manor House Wildlife Park, Dinosaur Experience and Heatherton World of Adventures. Pembroke is the ideal base for a family holiday, a walking break or just the chance to unwind in beautiful surroundings.
