  • "We had a lovely stay at the Beach Shack."

    Liz, the owner emailed before and during our stay with helpful information and advice, which was lovely. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. It is perfectly located for walks on the Pembrokeshire coastal path and the restaurant on site (Jack's) was great, as we didn't feel like cooking, so ate there most evenings. There was some work going on at the chalet next door, but this did not affect our stay as the work was during the day while we were out. We would love to stay again in the future. Many thanks for a great stay. Les & Ivo

    Thank you Les and Ivo for your lovely review. I’m so pleased you had a great holiday and enjoyed the beautiful coastal path walks. Jacks is a little gem of a bar/ restaurant and glad you enjoyed your evening meals there. Please do come and visit again sometime. Thanks again both. Property Owner

  • "We've just returned from a pleasant week at the Beach Shack, and can certainly echo everything the previous reviewers have said."

    The property was clean and well provisioned with everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including all we needed to stay entertained in the evenings when the children were settled for the night. Our 10 and 6 year olds were very sad to leave on our final day, and we wouldn't hesitate to book to stay again in the future. Location-wise, Freshwater East is well positioned with a clean and expansive beach, but is also a short drive away from some of Wales' best beaches. Barafundle and Broadhaven are some of the very cleanest and best beaches we've visited, and for the children a day at Folly Farm is not too be missed.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review S. I’m delighted you had such a great holiday and your children also enjoyed their stay, although with so many great beaches to choose from they were probably spoilt for choice! Barafundle is our favourite as well soo clean and beautiful seashore. Previous visitors have spoken highly of folly farm, glad you enjoyed it. Im pleased that The Beach Shack was clean and had everything in it to make your stay most comfortable, Please come and visit us again sometime S you were really great visitors. Property Owner

  • "The Beach Shack was fantastic."

    It was clean and the owners were very helpful. Providing items such as a windbreak and buckets and spades for our use was a lovely, helpful touch and made it much easier holidaying with children. Again, extra touches such as having towels provided and soap and washing up liquid meant packing was easier and made the stay more comfortable. The owners were in contact before and after the stay to ensure everything was satisfactory and they gave helpful tips for using the shower and appliances, which made it a smooth, stress free stay. I would definitely be back to stay again and would throughly recommend the property.

    Thank you so much for your fantastic review K. I’m so pleased you had a great time and everything you needed to help you enjoy your holiday was at The Beach Shack. I will pass on your comments about the cleanliness to our lovely cleaner as she does such a great job. I’m also glad you agree that communicating with visitors pre and post holiday is an important part of their holiday. Thanks for your recommendation, I also recommend you as you were a wonderful family and I would be so happy if you chose to stay with us again. Property Owner

    Loved staying here and I’m sure we will book it again. Freshwater East is a gem in the Pembrokeshire coast. The beach will never get crowded as it is vast. A fantastic place to stay

    Thank you so very much for your great review C, I’m delighted you had a lovely time and enjoyed all the facilities of the Beach Shack. I’ve certainly tried to keep it well stocked for our visitors. Couldn’t agree more about Freshwater east being a real gem. The Beach is stunning and literally a few minutes walk away. On a personal note thank you for the little gift you left, so kind and already showcased in the perfect spot. Please come and visit again. You would be so very welcome C. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic holiday and the Beach Shack played a big role in this."

    The chalet sits ina holiday village only minutes from the beach and a pub/restaurant. Freshwater East has a stunning beach a little busy at the weekends but otherwise A*. The chalet was very comfortable, so quiet, spotless and very well equipped. As close to a home-from-home as you can get! Communication with Sykes and the proprietor Liz was excellent. Thank you for making our holiday a special one.

    Thank you so much for your amazing review Mrs B. I’m delighted you had such a great holiday and found the Beach Shack to be so comfortable for you both, we aim to keep it as home from home for our visitors. Glad you agree Freshwater is a gorgeous beach and I’m delighted you gave it a 4 ⭐️ star rating.

  • "The beach shack was a wonderful holiday home which was clean and had all the facilities you need."

    Little extra touches such as beach equipment you could use and a folder filled with helpful tips about the local area and activities you could do really made the experience even better. Location of the property is fantastic with a restaurant/pub on site and the beach across the road. Would absolutely recommend this holiday home.

    Wow Ms M! Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so pleased you had a great holiday and found The Beach Shack to be a wonderful holiday home. The location is great isn't it, literally a 4 min walk to the beach. Yes we timed it!

  • "Under both settees were dirty, one had a sock , sand and sweet papers, the other had an empty bag of sweets, hair, and chocolate balls, cobwebs on the walls in the dining area, coffee stains in the double bedroom floor."

    I had to get the mop out and clean the floors on the first day, the reason why I moved the settee was to look straight ahead at the television.

    I’m so very sorry about this Ceris. Apologise profusely to you for the inconvenience of having to clean floors at any time of your stay. Also for the sweet papers etc left behind by a previous guest and not removed. If you had contacted me on my mob phone or email, both of which were provided to you prior to your arrival I would have immediately sorted this out for you. I appreciate this is not what you expect on arrival but I will investigate and ensure this does not happen again. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, feedback such as this should always be treated positively in terms of learning and preventing this happening again. I really hope the rest of your stay was positive and that you enjoyed yourselves in Pembrokeshire. Also that apart from this issue everything at The Beach Shack was of the high standards that we always aim for. Best wishes to you and your family. Property Owner

The property

Lamphey 2.4 miles.

Situated in Freshwater East, Pembrokeshire is The Beach Shack, a welcoming two-bedroom chalet for four guests.

Just a short walk away from the beach and an array of amenities, whilst enjoying an open-plan living space, a family-friendly environment, and a communal lawn for the children, the Beach Shack offers the perfect base for a family seascape, nestled within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Take advantage of the allocated parking space to the front of the chalet, before entering the living space, where you can rustle up tasty meals, dine as a group and relax in front of the Smart TV, with an array of children's games on hand for some light entertainment.

Prepare for bed in the spacious shower room before resting your eyes in either the double or bunk rooms, before awakening to an adventure-filled itinerary.

Take a stroll along Freshwater East beach, a large expanse of golden sand backed by the sand dunes of Freshwater Nature Reserve - the home of many interesting rock pools at either end for the young or young at heart to explore.The beach has level access and on-site toilets.

For the active beach visitors there is a stream which runs at its southern side, ideal for small children to play in, whilst surfing is a popular activity here as well.

The Pembrokeshire Coast path and its breathtaking scenery are the main attractions of this area and local walks include Swanlake Bay and the spectacular Barafundle beach - these are accessible on foot from the chalet without the need for a car journey.However there are many maps of area walks in the chalet to assist walkers of all abilities.

Before heading to Pembroke with its many craft shops, restaurants and cafes, start off your trip by touring the opulent ruins of Lamphey Bishops Palace.

Then when in Pembroke, a visit to the birthplace of King Henry VII and his Tudor dynasty in Pembroke Castle is a must.

Traveling south, a visit to Bosherston's Lily Ponds in season is a visual delight and near St Govan's Head is the stunning Chapel bearing his name, hidden deep below in the cliff-face - make sure to the count the steps down and back up again as local legend has it, they never match up.

A further walk along the Coastal Path will take you to Huntsman's Leap and the Green Bridge of Wales, which provide breath-taking cliff-top vistas, to experience some of the best vantage points that Wales has to offer.

Tenby, a charming seaside town with its medieval cobbled streets, walled old town and its four sandy beaches, is also close by.

Plan your next trip to perfect Pembrokeshire, at The Beach Shack.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £75.
