    Although it's attached to the property it's really private and everything just works well and the hot tub is superb. It's really well located, super quiet yet within 10 mins walk of the beach at Wisemans beach and then another 15 min walk into Saundersfoot. Great area for walking and beaches. Some lovely restaurants in Saundersfoot and beyond. It was a great week.

  • "We had a lovely break at The Briars."

    The location was quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We didn't hear a peep from neighbours, traffic, workers etc for the whole week including the weekend, except for the Asda supermarket delivery driver and if we'd known he delivered locally we would have ordered a few forgotten items ourselves! We visited in November so weather was chilly but the electric radiators were brillant, even in the extension. The interior pictures in the listing are great and show how well maintained and finished the whole appartment is. Everything was spotless. There was a lovely little welcome package waiting for us when we arrived and good instructions on heating, hot tub and other essential info. The TV package was a great boon, we got to view some evening movies curled up on the comfy sofa. The full size fridge freezer was a master stroke too. No worries about wasting our holiday time to shop every couple of days. We just bought it all for the freezer before arriving, didn't need to go out again. Its worth noting that the image of the frontage is mainly the owners property. The annexe is accessed via the side gate and comprises of the ground floor of the brick portion of the house (with bedroom window visible on the left), the large glass extension attached behind, and the open plan kitchen/living room sandwiched between. The underfloor heating mentioned seems to extend to the bathroom only, wish I'd taken my slippers! The lower garden and tub are perfectly private with tall panel fencing. The hot tub was enormous and delicious to soak in after a cold walk on the seafront. Again I found it a bit difficult to tell from the picture but the tub is just outside the glass extension, you just walk around the outside of the extension to get to it. You will need footwear, or a very big leap to cross the meter or so of gravel between the path and the tub deck. We enjoyed lounging there watching the very active bird life and fearless squirrels dancing around the trees only feet away from us. The stone steps behind the tub lead up a slope to a little secret strip of grass at the top of the garden, home to a picnic table at the left end, and two loungers at the right end. The fence at the top backs onto open fields giving a nice outlook at the grazing horses. This along with the excellent planting of shrubs and trees on the slope below, gives complete privacy. The footpath to the beach was easy to find, just a short distance down the lane and it took us just 10min to walk there each day, winding through a small holiday park. We stopped at the pub next to the beach for a hot chocolate to warm up and some friendly chatter, then a further 20min walk along the promenade above the beach straight into Stepaside, a busy little town with plenty of places to eat, drink, shop for nick nacks, or pick up groceries at the tesco express or spar. On the beach front they also had a cafe, immaculate public toilets, beach sport facility and shop. Would definitely stay again.

    The Briars is located in a very quiet and lovely secluded valley which has easy access to either a coastal road or a main highway. Ten minute walk to Wiseman's bridge Inn and beach. If you prefer to walk into Saundersfoot it's approximately forty minutes easy walk on the flat coast path. The property is top quality with access to a lovely garden and hot tub.

    The property is perfect for 2 and it's really private even though it's attached to the owners property. The accommodation is very high quality, everything works well and there are great things like full sky package, glorious hot tub, comfortable furniture, including the bed. Lovely walk into Wisemans bridge and over to Saundersfoot via the 3 tunnels, or via the beaches when the tides out. Great places to visit in the car, Stackpole was the best for us, the beach at Barafundle is special - get there early and you'll feel like you have your own VIP beach. Tenby also very nice which is 15 mins drive.

    It is perfectly situated for walks to Wiseman’s Bridge, Amroth and Saundersfoot. The photographs don’t do the beautiful garden justice - it is absolutely stunning.

Facilities are brilliant and we appreciated the welcoming gifts and information. We will definitely return.

  • "The photos do justice to the accommodation, but they are misleading as to which part of the property you actually stay in."

    The gravel path leading to your entrance at the back of the house is awkward to traverse with heavy luggage or if you are unsteady on your feet. Somewhere to place your toiletries in the shower would be useful. The Wi-Fi is excellent, but the mobile phone signal is non-existent. We had to cut our stay short due to contracting Covid (not the fault of the property in any way) so we had little chance to explore the surrounding area. Thanks to the owners for our welcome pack, which was much appreciated.

    We were sorry you had to leave our accommodation after just three days when your wife contracted COVID 19. However we were relieved that you did not stay for the week as you left the accommodation in a very dirty state! There was pasta sauce everywhere! All over the skirting boards! Every pan had been used and left in a disgusting state! You were probably the dirtiest guests who have ever stayed in our accommodation. Property Owner

The open-plan living area has been renovated to a high-standard, featuring plenty of modern touches and smart features.

Pembrokeshire’s beaches are some of the finest in Wales with sandy expanses, secret coves and rock pools, and the beach at Wiseman's Bridge is just a 5 minute walk away.

About the location


  • Amroth 1 mile
  • Saundersfoot 4 miles
  • Tenby 6.5 miles
  • Narberth 7 miles
  • Pembroke 10.8 miles

Once home to both coal and iron mines, Stepaside is now a holiday hamlet with a few houses pubs and restaurants. This valley was a hive of industrial activity from the 14th to the 19th century as it was an integral part of the Pembrokeshire coal field. It’s hard to imagine that now, as very little remains apart from the old ironworks at Stepaside and the railway tunnels between Wisemans Bridge and Saundersfoot. There were 12 collieries working in this area at its heyday. The whole of Pembrokeshire beckons with the harbour and seaside resorts of Amroth just 15 minutes’ walk away, Tenby and Saundersfoot close by, visit secluded sandy beaches, such as the acclaimed Barafundle Bay for a quiet relaxing day, or take in an invigorating walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast National Path. Enjoy a boat trip to Caldey Island and its monastery, or to Skomer, which is renowned for its puffins. For the most adventurous, extreme watersports await, whilst golfers can take the challenge of Tenby's famous links course. The nearby town of Narberth is a delight to discover with its many individual shops, including upmarket boutiques, specialist deli grocers and unique gift shops, and a wide choice of restaurants, bistros and pubs can be found in and around the town. Queen's Hall, Narberth's leading cultural and arts venue hosts a variety of concerts, plays and events, which can be enjoyed throughout the year. A perfect holiday base at any time of year.
