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. Walking through the large stone porch of the property, I was expecting to step into a very traditional barn-style shabby chic décor. Instead I was greeted with a modern homely feel throughout the property with original features still in place to add […]

The time has come to wrap up warm, don the woolly hats and head outside to enjoy fantastic fireworks displays in celebration of Bonfire Night. The 5th November has become a national celebration across the UK in remembrance of Guy Fawkes and his infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament as an act of rebellion against King James I over differences in religious beliefs.
