    We unfortunately had a very wet week but it didn't stop us exploring the area. The cottage is cosy and lovely and warm, especially when the wood burner is lit. It has a well equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. The owners are very helpful and friendly and the welcome gifts much appreciated.

    It was a beautiful spot and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area and watching the tides on the ria. The owners were charming and helpful. Lunch at the nearby beach cafe at Lawrenny was very good. We also enjoyed the local dog-friendly castle and mill at Carew.

  • "Laburnum Cottage was the perfect bolthole for us."

    We have stayed in a variety of cottages in Pembrokeshire and this by far our favourite. It is charming throughout and the position is a real escape but with benefit of a great pub for a pint. Our hosts couldn't do enough and were wwelcoming and knowledgeable about local destinations. Everything you would want to do or see is 20 minutes away. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

  • "An absolutely fantastic property."

    This is probably best equipped property we have been to. The host were absolutely fantastic - just there when we needed them. There was a good welcome package- Welsh cake - prosseco - milk- tea and coffee . The accommodation was small but contained absolutely everything we needed. It was definitely dog friendly. Downstairs was a lounge kitchen area area - just what we needed and upstairs was the mostomfortable double bedroom, bathroom with shower and room with boule bunks, I cannot praise this property highly enough. Just want to return. The location is great. Just over the road is the Cresselly Arms - the best local I have ever been too. Just beware of the occasional spring tides! There are so many places to visit and so many local walks. As in all, I just love this place and can’t wait to return.

  • "This is a really lovely cottage overlooking Creswell Quay, very comfy and cosy, has everthing you would need, the Refreshment welcome pack was much needed after a long drive, the basket of logs for the fire was very welcome as well."

    The owners are lovely people and although they live next door you hardly see them, but great to know they were there if a problem arose. If we went back to this area we would certainly stay at Laburnham cottage again. Great Location for that area of Wales. Tenby is only 20 minutes away, St. Davids is about an hour away.

    Quiet and peaceful and with lovely views. Less than 30 minutes' drive to empty beaches. The hosts were very helpful, accommodating us at very short notice, and providing us with fresh salad from their enviable vegetable garden. I would recommend this to anyone keen to explore this part of Pembrokeshire.

    It was wonderfully snug and warm when we arrived and the owner was on hand to welcome us. We appreciated the Tea/Coffee/Welshcakes and Proscetto, thank you! The cottage was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. The kingsize bed was very comfortable and there was a lovely view of the creek from the downstairs and bedroom windows. A perfect relaxing spot to enjoy some peace and quiet with beautiful beaches within easy reach. Happy to recommend.

    The children had an amazing time crabbing from the quayside next to the cottage and exploring the woods over the stepping stones.

    The cottage is beautifully decorated and everything is to hotel standard. It was so nice to sleep so well in a such a good quality bed and bedding.

    The cottage is cosy, comfortable and really clean with a beautiful and ever-changing view of the creek. The local community is friendly and always willing to help and sitting outside the nearby Cresselly Arms on a warm sunny day, with a glass of wine or beer, is nothing short of perfection. My partner and I will definitely be going to Laburnham Cottage again.

About the location


Pembroke 7 miles; Tenby 8 miles; Narberth 10 miles.

One of the most picturesque villages in Pembrokeshire, Cresswell Quay is best described as a delightful hamlet of scattered cottages at the edge of the tidal estuary. The central focal point is, of course, the old quay where boats can still moor, for the time the tide allows, and you may wish to pop into the Cresselly Arms for light refreshments. The Cresselly Arms is one of the oldest pubs in Wales and fully retains its original character and quirkiness, drawing people from far and wide including a few celebrities who have enjoyed a pint in complete relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of larger towns. Regular seasonal fun is had with pig roasts, barbecues, duck races and the local meeting of the hounds or why not enjoy the stepping stones revealed at low tide, which are great fun for all the family to try and cross without getting wet? Wonderful woodland or coastal walks can be enjoyed from the village, while Lawrenny, Carew Castle and Carew Mill are all just a short drive away. Within easy reach of sandy beaches, boat trips for bird watching, an array of castles, theme parks and zoos, Cresswell Quay is a perfect, picturesque base from which to discover this lovely area of Pembrokeshire.
