  • "This is the third time we have stayed at Holly Cottage."

    And hopefully it will not be the last, a perfect base to visit the wonders of Pembrokeshire. As usual the cottage was in a lovely condition and being a short walk into Pembroke itself makes it handy for pub's restaurants shops etc.

  • "PLEASE do not be put off with the front picture of this cottage, it does it no justice at all, once parked round the back and using the track there, it becomes totally different, Garden was ideal for our escape artist Bailey, no escape there, the garden neat with seating of plenty, the cottage was so modern and beautiful inside, with more than all the appliances etc ever needed, beds were comfortable and everything was just around the corner, most coves were within 15 minute drive, and there are lots of them, we found these pretty empty too, and the views around them are mind blowing, we enjoyed Freshwater East tbh but all were Fantastic and so close…."

    . we liked it so much, we cancelled Next years holiday to RE-BOOK this one, thank you Sue , from Glyn and Sue, and Bailey and Ruby the dogs x

    An added bonus of a beautiful garden and off road parking at the back of the property.. Excellent communication from Sue throughout and we even had some milk and Welsh Cakes to welcome us. Perfect location for visiting lots of places and the town only 5 minutes walk away with shops pubs and restaurants. Would definitely recommend.

    You have to park around the back in an unmade passageway as the street was very narrow outside the from. We had neighbours knocking the front door as they thought we had parked outside their house !!! Quite a run down area !!

  • "A very generously equipped, impeccably clean and cosy little home-from-home in a very quiet little street."

    Although the 2nd bedroom is fairly basic with little storage space, the beds in both rooms are gloriously comfy. Offroad parking provision is a godsend and the securely enclosed garden is a wonderfully convenient and reassuring bonus for guests with dogs. The outside space must be delightful if you are lucky enough to coincide with good weather. A fabulous base from which to explore this beautiful area.

    I would suggest that the slabs on the steps are attended to - a bit loose. From the front, before you go in, it looks a bit poor, but inside it is excellent. Our dogs enjoyed the garden. Pembroke itself is a bit tired- Kings Arms is good. Watermans Arms is very friendly, as is the Hope. We had a good week!

The property

Holly Cottage enjoys a wonderfully central position in the medieval town of Pembroke, boasting a single-storey layout and enclosed garden.

This lovely Pembrokeshire dwelling is perfect for a family holiday to South Wales, with award-winning beaches just a simple drive away, along with many family-friendly attractions in the surrounding area.

Be welcomed in through the front door and down the hall, into the kitchen/diner where you can flick the kettle on and prepare a post-adventure snack, with a good range of appliances in the fitted kitchen for rustling up your favourite dishes, and a dining table to bring the group together for mealtimes.

From here, make your way into the sitting room, boasting a sofa and an armchair, you can unwind into your evening here with the gas fire providing extra warmth as you enjoy a film on the TV.

On sunnier days, spend time out in the lovely enclosed garden, providing a great space for your dog to stretch their legs, and for your group to delight in alfresco dining on the patio, games and fun on the lawn, or evening drinks on the rear decking on a balmy evening.

Back in the house off the main hallway, discover two excellent bedrooms to rest in, both home to double beds and TVs, along with plenty of storage for your things, while a shared family bathroom offers a lovely spot to freshen up in.

The town of Pembroke is on your doorstep, with a short stroll bringing you up close with Pembroke Castle, an imposing and historic building overlooking Mill Pond and birthplace of Henry Tudor, definitely a Pembroke attraction not to be missed!

Hire a rowboat to go out on Mill Pond on a sunny afternoon, before unpacking a picnic in Lower Common Park or choose from the awesome selection of cafés and restaurants.

Make your way to Pembroke Dock and visit the heritage centre here before heading to the harbour, with plenty of opportunities for fishing charters from here.

A host of fun-filled adventure parks and theme parks lie in the surrounding area including Heatherton World of Activities, Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo, Dinosaur Trail, Oakwood Theme Park, and Bluestone Adventure Centre.

All ages are sure to enjoy a trip to Manor Wildlife Park, home to tigers, rhinos, red pandas, and many more.

Venture over to the coast when the sun is shining and head to the likes of Tenby and Saundersfoot, both offering fantastic sandy beaches.

Embark on an exciting Saundersfoot Sea Safari and head out onto the water in the hopes of catching sight of seals, dolphins, minke whales and basking sharks, or admire the beautiful sea views as you play a round of golf at Tenby Golf Club.

Enjoy getting to know Pembroke and this beautiful area of South Wales with your loved ones from Holly Cottage.
