    “I did send a message before our stay asking some questions about wi-fi and local pubs, but I got no reply, so not happy about that!”

The property

Milford Haven 5.3 miles.

The Anchorage is a traditional Welsh stone cottage nestled within a spectacular woodland area of the Pembrokeshire National Park.

Bring your family to this large detached property, originally two separate cottages which have melded together to form a homely, child-friendly base.

Make your way through the tall, lush trees onto the spacious driveway where the cottage spreads across two acres of land, and onto an enchanting stone fort children's playhouse containing an open air theater and seats, where kids and even some adults can delve into an enchanted woodland fantasy, as well as ample space for boat, trailer, kayak and bike storage.

Making your way to the entrance, you'll find a front suntrap with garden furniture, a peaceful spot to drink a cup of tea and read the morning paper.

This welcoming cottage is filled with quirky seaside and boating decor in nearly every room, including paintings, anchors and stories of the Victorian coastline.

Unwind in the snug open-plan living area, a room bursting with a homely family feel and country house decor, here you'll find a well-equipped kitchen, spacious family dining area, and large lounge with plenty of plush sofas, a TV and a decorative fireplace.

Clean up in the handy utility room where you can wash your wetsuits and beachwear using the washing machine and clothes rail.

Take your pick between the ground-floor bathroom and shower room, soak your feet in a glorious bubble bath or grab an invigorating morning shower.

This cottage is ideal for a large family gathering with young children, with the ground floor hosting two large double rooms and a twin which holds two travel cots, whereas the first floor boasts a grand twin and double, both with traditional sloped ceilings and en-suite bathrooms.

When a rainy day strikes, the kids can entertain themselves in the upstairs galleried play area, protected by a safety gate, this wonderfully fun space has toys, games, and a TV, there's even enjoyment here for the adults, where you can learn about the deep history of the coastline found on the walling in the room.

Relax in the enclosed two acre garden, strolling along the brick patio, verdant lawn, woodland and even a camping area.

A short drive away in St Ishmael's village centre is a popular pub where you can sink down a local Welsh pint, there's also a nearby village store in Marloes for you to pick up all your essentials for your self-catered stay.

Take the kids for a day out at the rural beach of Lindsway Bay, a secluded sandy haven surrounded by tall cliffs, but make sure to check the tide times so your day doesn't get cut short, while there's lots of other sandy beaches in close distance including Marloes Sands and Little Haven Beach.

You can't visit this corner of Wales without taking a walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, ideal for ramblers, bird watchers and hikers, it's also the best location for watersports such as surfing, cliff diving, sailing and windsurfing.

Drive over to the towns of Milford Haven to play golf, with plenty of other wonderful amenities being found here too for a self-catered stay, or the medieval Haverfordwest, where you can explore historic landmarks and its castle.

Discover the thriving city of St. Davids, known as Britain's smallest city, here you can visit a host of cultural attractions, dine in local restaurants and pubs, and tour the famous St Davids Cathedral.

Relish in quality family time at The Anchorage, an enchanted sanctuary where you can find your inner child encompassed by magical countryside views.

About the location


Haverfordwest 8 miles.

Milford Haven is a busy little town overlooking the Cleddau Waterway. The once thriving fishing industry of this town has been replaced with a picturesque marina with a delightful Mediterranean feel. The unique little shops, galleries, tea rooms and restaurants around the marina offer leisurely shopping and a great variety of fine dining, including locally caught fresh fish dishes. The award-winning Torch Theatre offers a variety of entertainment and with a cinema, restaurant and bar, is a great place for all the family. Sit and enjoy the water views or have some fun and try ten pin bowling! This waterside town is perfectly located to discover all Pembrokeshire has to offer - the wonderful sandy beaches, coastal path, boat trips, castles, museums, Britain's smallest "city", St Davids, with its magnificent cathedral, theme parks and so much more.
