Stay at Pebbles, Saundersfoot

Having grown up in Pembrokeshire, my childhood memories of summer are filled with days spent building sandcastles and splashing in the shores of our sandy beaches.

Sleeping up to six, Pebbles (Property Ref: 43340) is a three bedroom semi-detached house just a short walk from Saundersfoot’s picturesque harbour and sandy beach. Situated above […]
