Introducing the latest addition to our portfolio..

As I pulled up outside ‘The Cottage’ in Saundersfoot, on a sunny afternoon I couldn’t wait to take a look around inside. I love finding quirky properties that are in some way characterful or unique, so when I set eyes on this picturesque thatched property I already knew it was going to be a new favourite of mine.
