Holiday Home in St Ishmaels

Availability & Book

About Butterhill Grange

Butterhill Grange is a wonderful and historic Grade II listed mansion, saved from dereliction and transformed into a stunning holiday home for family gatherings and friends to reunite. It lies at the end of a private unmade road in a quiet and attractive hamlet of five dwellings converted from its original estate buildings.

Built in the early 1700s, with C12th origins as a priory farm, the Grange remained the home of the Roche family for over 300 years. Recent history saw many owners, including requisition by the RAF as officer accommodation, before falling into a dilapidated state in the 60s. Now, newly and lovingly renovated in a stylish contemporary style, it offers stately reception rooms and spacious bedrooms.

From the grand entrance hall, step left into the formal dining room with its bespoke dining table for convivial leisurely dining. From here, steps take you down to the well-equipped fitted kitchen with scullery beyond. There is plenty of space in which to relax and for children to play, with the rather grand sitting room heading up a collection of three living rooms, a library, games area and a cinema. The delightful bedrooms (mostly ensuite) are arranged over two floors, including a tucked-away pair of bedrooms ideal for young families. Enjoy long summer evenings relaxing on the paved terrace whilst across the lane there is an acre of grounds, woodland and shell grotto, all of which are slowly being restored; children will love exploring.

The area teems with bird and wildlife and Butterhill Grange is itself a haven, with the cellars home to rare bats and the roof eaves boasting one of the largest roosts of house martins in West Wales. The sea and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path are just 25 minutes by foot. The village of St Ishmaels is less than a mile away with its local pub, The Brook Inn, serving food. The Dale peninsula is yours to explore with some of its most fantastic beaches within a 10 minute drive including Lindsway beach, Marloes Sands, Musslewick and West Dale. Dale’s sheltered harbour is a favourite with sailors and water sport enthusiasts, perfect for beginners and professionals alike, or surf the waves at Broad Haven and Newgale. Martins Haven, the embarkation point to see the Skomer Island puffins, is conveniently nearby and a trip out for this unique experience should not be missed.

Butterhill Grange is the perfect place for groups to get together and relax, sure to give you everlasting holiday memories to cherish.

We all enjoyed the week in this wonderful house. Restored and decorated to such a high standard. We loved the seclusion and the wildlife, particularly birds and bats.


Many thanks to Richard for his kind attention and for introducing us to the house so well. Amazing décor, very comfy beds and a beautiful setting.


We had such a fantastic week in this stunning house – none of us wanted to leave! We loved the different rooms – each with their own personality – and it has been a fantastic space for the whole family to come together. We very much hope to be back one day! Thank you very much.
