  • "We had a lovely break at Smugglers cottage, which is in an ideal position to visit the beaches and amenities in Pembrokeshire."

    The property was clean, light, nicely decorated, and comfortably furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and met our needs. We met the owner on our arrival who was very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive in any way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would like to return.

  • "Lovely cottage, warm, clean and comfortable."

    Thoughtful welcome gifts of prosseco and tea cakes - much appreciated. As it was still quite cold at night a slightly thicker duvet would have been appreciated. All in all though - highly recommended.

  • "We had a fantastic time."

    The weather was wild and wet but we still enjoyed the walks with our dog down to the beach. It would be even better with sunny, warm days. The cottage was a little hard to find, it being behind the Spa that the postcode takes you to. We had a lovely warm welcome with some fizz and welsh cakes, milk, tea, coffee and sugar. All very clean with everything we needed too. Very cosy and peaceful to come back to after a day out, walking. Slight problem is that my dog managed to find a way out of the enclosed garden so we had to keep her on the lead. But no complaints at all, otherwise. Thankyou for a lovely weekend break.

  • "Great location, and the cottage was equipped really well."

    Very useful to have an outside area where our dog could be 'contained' for a short while, eg while eating her food. Also handy dog-walking areas, as well as the lovely cliff top.

    We had a great break exploring the locality - the owner’s local knowledge was particularly helpful. There are lovely walks from the cottage as well as beautiful beaches to discover nearby. The cottage provided all we needed for a very comfortable stay.

  • "Spotlessly clean on arrival!"

    Which gave us comfort especially during these hard times of covid! Nice equipped cottage with comfy beds! In a quiet, beautiful location with wonderful walks! A superb welcome gift was waiting on the table in the kitchen! Friendly owners who respect your privacy but are there if needed! Great walks all around and incredible beaches too! Very dog friendly and Oakley our dog enjoyed his stay just as much as we as a family did! A very much needed break was enjoyed by all! Thank you I would highly recommend and would also return back if we chose to visit this side of Wales again!

    Lovely village location, within walking distance to places to drink and restaurants and a nice little park. Owners very friendly and welcoming, prosecco, milk and welsh cakes were a lovely surprise. The cottage itself was spotless, beds comfy, modern bathroom and bedrooms tastefully decorated. We are in the holiday cottage business ourselves and this place definitely deserves atleast four stars, not three! A wonderful stay, we have already booked for next May. Can't wait to return.

  • "Enjoyed our stay."

    The Smugglers is a good base for exploring the stunning coastline. It's great to be able to stroll down the lane and be on the coastal path in minutes. The prosecco and Welsh cakes were a very welcome suprise when we arrived. The property is opposite the owners house which means when you sit outside it is overlooked, however they are careful to keep themselves to themselves.

The property

A stones throw away from the coast set in the heart of Lydstep, near the village of Manorbier is the charming ground-floor property, Smugglers.

The property rests in the grounds of the owner’s home and has been completely renovated inside with all quality fixtures and fittings with a lovely light décor.

Entering the property, be welcomed into an open-plan living space which comes with a sofa and armchair where you can look forward to relaxing and unwinding in front of the TV and catch up on your favourite shows with the provided Netflix account.

Behind this is a kitchen which has a set of cream units and sleek wooden worktops housing all the appliances needed for cooking up some delicious meals.

Gather at the dining table to enjoy a lovingly-made meal and discuss the day’s events with a refreshing glass of sparkling wine.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the two well-presented bedrooms in the form of a king-size and a twin, offering matching bedside tables and lamps for some late night reading and plenty of storage space.

To the front of the property is an enclosed gravel garden where you can take your morning cup of tea and indulge in a good book whilst the sun rise or sets.

A short walk down the lane takes you to the rugged Coastal Path, the best way to really appreciate the stunning coastline.

At low tide you must explore the Lydstep Caverns and Smugglers Caves or stroll along the Lydstep Haven beach.

Lydstep has a fantastic village pub which is extremely popular and also Waves restaurant where you can dine overlooking the bay or treat yourself to a pamper session in the Celtic Haven spa, all within walking distance.

Just down the coast is the village of Manorbier which has a convenience store for all the essentials.

For a spot of history, make sure you visit the 11th century Castle, or enjoy a long relaxing afternoon at Manorbiers world class surfing beach where you can sunbathe, swim or take the opportunity for some watersports such as kayaking and sea fishing.

Smugglers is the perfect property for holidays to the coast.

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