  • "Excellent location."

    Back garden larger than expected - a good thing! Best equipped kitchen we have come across.

  • "Wonderful holiday!"

    We were 8 adults and 2 children, plenty of space for all of us. With the beach just down the road, it suited all age groups, whether building sand castles, exploring rock pools or going for cliff walks. Centrally placed to explore Pembrokeshire, was a great base and so welcoming to come back to. The only thing missing was a general store/Ice cream within walking distance.

    Owner was lovely and couldn't have done any more for us. Worth a visit to the local pub just for the experience.

  • "This is a lovely property in an idyllic location with the beach a few feet away from the front door."

    Pembrokeshire is a great place to visit and the cottage allowed all of us to enjoy what it has to offer and not have to travel far to do so. Haverfordwest is only 15mins away too if you require anything. The cottage is well catered for in terms of cooking equipment and we all fitted in beautifully without feeling cramped as a large party of people. The owner was very good about providing us with a cot and high chair and advice about the local area. We unfortunately broke a measuring jug and were told on the final day that we should have replaced it. We didn't know that we should have. It left an unfortunate taste in our mouths as we left. Shame the owner couldn't see that accidents happen and that the amount one pays for the cottage can carry such collateral as a jug.

  • "We have stayed at this property before and were looking forward to returning."

    We had 4 generations of family staying together and a dog. Having the annex and the additional 2 lounges was invaluable, allowing space for us all when needed. The owner was very helpful and they came and sorted the fire alarms on the day we arrived and the recycling the day before we were due to leave. The garden up behind the church, we used nearly everyday as had a fire pit and overlooked the beach. Having private parking was really good too. There is so much you can do using this property as your base, exploring the coastline both in the car and on foot. We particularly liked spending our evenings as a family sharing a meal around the dining table, which comfortably sat us all. Highly recommend Hillbrook House for families.

  • "Our second year here, Hillbrook’s location is fabulous, just 50 yards from a lovely beach and cove."

    The property had everything we could wish for and was spotless when we arrived. The extra cleaning due to the pandemic seems to be working well and we did not mind the late check in to facilitate this. The new car park for the house is brilliant and a real bonus, easily holds 3 cars. The whole house is comfy and so much space. The children enjoyed organising a table football competition for us all. Even the beaches being red flagged for the last day or so due to Storm Ellen did not spoil our holiday. In fact the waves on the final day were very impressive!

  • "We were already really excited about our stay at Hillbrook House but the listing simply doesn’t do the house or location justice."

    We go away as an extended family regularly, but this was by far the best we’ve ever stayed in. The house itself it’s excellently equipped and tastefully decorated throughout. It has bags of space and several families could easily go away together without feeling cramped. The beds were comfortable, it had three bathrooms (one of which is a wet room which can be used when getting back from the beach) and even had a variety of water sports/beach equipment available to use too (wet suits and body boards as well as bucket and spades etc). The location though, is what sets this house apart from anywhere else we’ve stayed. The beach is literally 60 seconds from your door - a small cove which doesn’t get too busy and is perfect for body boarding and paddle boarding. Right next door is an excellent pub which serves lovely food - we really enjoyed the lobster from the evening menu and loaded fries over lunch. Nearby and worth a visit you have St David’s Cathedral, Tenby, Pembroke Castle and Manor Wildlife Park. This said, we’ve never spent as much time staying in and enjoying the immediate surroundings of a holiday getaway before. We would strongly recommend this house to others. In fact, for the first time, we’re considering returning again in the future. Overall an excellent host, with an excellent house in an excellent location. A huge thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Beach is lifeguarded which is a real bonus! We had 11 people in the house and it was never crowded The dining room table is fabulous and a great place to meet up and chat - we did not use the 2 lounges too much except late evening after dinner and games Lovely front garden with benches, BBQ and fire pit looking over the bay Very friendly owners who we saw often as they live in village Note - if you want fish and chips from the chippy at the Murco petrol station on the main road and its a large order - phone it through beforehand as they can only cook smaller amounts in one go and they are very busy at times! But the food is very good.

  • "A perfect family holiday."

    We stayed as a family group with 6 adults, two 3 year olds and a baby. It was perfect, we had so much space and the separate annex for the baby (and her parents!) meant that the rest of us were able to get a good nights sleep. We slept really well and didn't hear any noise from the restaurant next door. The beach is practically on the door step. A really good beach too- it had stones, sand and rock pools, everything a young child could want! There were also buckets, spades, nets and other toys provided at the cottage which was great. Tons to do near by too. We went to two castles, a chocolate factory and Broad Haven which is another lovely beach near by. We also went on bike rides (although be warned it's very hilly!) and walks around the coast (without the kids as the path isn't very safe for little ones!) The outside spaces are a huge bonus too. The back garden was lovely for the kids to run around but there is also another garden across the road which has an amazing view of the beach as well as a BBQ and fire pit which we made good use of! Everything we could possibly need was provided, including cots, children's toys and the kitchen was well equipped for large groups. We did have a problem with the dishwasher but this was quickly resolved by the owner (although we did have to drive somewhere to call as you don't get a phone signal here)

    Our family group of 10 ranged from 8 months to 90 years old and both the cottage and the location proved perfect for everyone, whether it was paddling in the rock pools, making sandcastles on the beach, surfing the waves, walking the dog, or just sitting in the sun - even the weather was kind.

  • "Hillbrook House was an excellent venue for our Easter holiday."

    With the excellent weather it’s location so close to the beach was perfect. We had 6 children in our party, ranging from 9 years to 17 months, all the beach equipment was very well used. The kitchen was very well equipped, the only down side was that there wasn’t a lot of worktop. Even though the garden was a walk away, we cooked our Sunday meal and carried it up and ate it in the sunshine overlooking the beach, earlier in the day all of the children had a great time in the garden at our Easter egg hunt. We all had an amazing time!

  • "Holiday home was lovely and bigger downstairs than expected."

    The owners provided a lovely welcome hamper for us all which included tea, coffee sugar, biscuits, mince pies and chocolate lollipops for the 3 children. Although kitchen had everything we needed, we found there was limited workspace to prepare meals and we couldn’t plate meals up in the kitchen. The dining room table was large enough though for us to put cooked dishes straight onto the table. The annex provided a quiet haven for anyone who wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of a large party. We had a party of 12 from ages 75 to 2 years old. The annex bedroom was very comfortable with a large chest of drawers and clothes rail. 5 of the bedrooms did not have wardrobes but they had hooks on the wall and clothes rails with about 6 coat hangers. In my opinion 2 of the bedrooms should not be double due to the size of the rooms. They were very cramped and some of our party struggled with their clothing. One of the bedrooms was huge and had two built in wardrobes. All of the beds were very comfortable. We were left looking after a relatives dog over ther Xmas period due to an illness in the family and the owners were very kind in allowing us to bring him as well as the 2 dogs we had booked. We had an enjoyable stay and would recommend it.

  • "There were 11 of us in our party, 7 adults, 1 teenager & 3 nearly-teenagers, so none of us small, & it felt like there wasn't much space, particularly when eating & in most of the bedrooms."

    For a six bedroomed property, it was surprising that there were only 3 toilets, & even more surprising that only 6 toilet rolls were provided. In addition, effectively half a j-cloth & a handful of dishwasher tablets were simply insufficient. With 11 of us eating, we ran the dishwasher at least twice, if not 3 times a day & we quickly ran out. Similarly the amount of washing up liquid provided only lasted a few days! The 3 teatowels provided were also insufficient, for the number of times they had to be used. Can I suggest that you review the amount of consumables provided given the number of people staying. On the plus side, the house was very handy for playing on the beach/in the sea & the bodyboards were used nearly every day!

  • "What a lovely cottage and what a great time we had."

    Six comfortable bedrooms and several lounges gave eleven of us plenty of room. We had several keen cooks in our party and the well equipped main kitchen and even a second kitchen for overspill cooking were highly rated. We knew there was a private garden over the road behind the chapel but hadn't expected it to play such a large part in our week as it did - the private full view of the beach and the sea from high on the cliff was spectacular, and we spent a lot of time over there, barbequeing (brick BBQ provided) or just sitting with drinks at the picnic tables. It's fully fenced which is great if you have a dog, just let them wander around it off lead. There's a second garden directly behind the house, the view is only of the car park, but again this is fully fenced and dog escape proof. Turn right out of the front door and you're on Nolton Haven beach in 30 metres. Good beach, and the wonderful Pembrokeshire Coastal Footpath runs from each side of it so you can walk for miles either northwards or southwards. As other people have said, the walk on the path southwards to The Druidstone Inn is well worth doing. We booked an online home delivery from Asda for our groceries. I believe Tesco will deliver to this address too. Otherwise Lidl in Haverfordwest is the nearest decent size shop, there's also Morrisons a bit further into Haverfordwest. And Aldi and Tesco although we didn't actually spot where they were. Lidl definitely the nearest. We highly recommend Hillbrook House.

About the location

NOLTON HAVEN

Haverfordwest 8 miles; St Davids 10 miles.

Nolton Haven is a wonderful seaside village, located on the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path and within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This sleepy little village has a sheltered sandy beach where you can sit and relax, explore rock pools, or join the spectacular coastal path for beautiful scenic walking. A country pub serving food overlooks the bay, and you have the opportunity of horse riding via the local village riding school. From this delightful village you can enjoy all Pembrokeshire has to offer: sandy beaches, historic castles, churches and houses, wonderful wildlife both on and off shore with boat trips to the bird island of Skomer and Ramsay, and for something more exhilarating, whitewater rides. The smallest city in the UK, St. Davids, is nearby, with its majestic cathedral, Bishop’s Palace, National Park visitor centre/art gallery and array of unique little shops, tea rooms and eating places, while the bustling but quaint seaside resort of Tenby can be reached in about forty minutes, offering painted Georgian properties set along the bay, and a variety of restaurants. Also well worth a visit are Barafundle Beach, Porthgain, the fossil beach of Marloe Sands and Newgale Beach, great for surfing and water sports, while cycling, fishing, rock climbing and coasteering can also be enjoyed in the area. From the height of summer to a cool winter’s day, you will love your stay in this delightful part of Wales.
