Ivy Cottage

One of the earliest houses in the conservation area of this tiny, picturesque fishing village, Ivy Cottage has been renovated to a high standard by local craftsmen while still preserving its original character. It provides a welcoming and comfortable base from which to enjoy the glorious, uncrowded countryside and beaches of Pembrokeshire. 

The cottage sits in a cul-de-sac only 3 minutes’ walk from the sea - close to but removed from - the bustle of the village and beach.

In the cosy sitting room you can enjoy a relaxing evening in front of the open fire, perhaps watching a film from the large collection on DVD, after a day spent walking the cliffs and coves of the Pembrokeshire Coast path. The separate dining room also offers a comfortable place for listening to music, catching up on emails, or simply reading in peace.

A third seating area gives easy access to the steps leading up to the small private, south-facing garden, with patio, summerhouse, garden furniture and some sea views. This sun-trap makes an ideal retreat from the busy centre of the village and you can sit back peacefully, drink in hand, enjoying the extensive views over the valley and out towards the sea.

There is a shower room on the ground floor, and the well-equipped oak kitchen has everything you need for cooking.  

 f you don’t feel like making a meal, just a short stroll away Little Haven boasts 3 excellent pubs with restaurants. Each one has its own character, but all offer great food using local produce, as well as an interesting variety of beers. There are also restaurants in Haverfordwest  which deliver.

Upstairs there are two comfortable, pretty bedrooms with pine furniture and ample storage space as well as a bespoke oak and granite bathroom.

Ivy Cottage provides a cosy, peaceful and unique retreat, perfect for couples and small families and a ‘home from home’, ideal for all seasons.

 

Little Haven is a charming, old fishing village on the coast of St Brides Bay, in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park. It nestles in a cove at the junction of two small streams. Too small for much development, Little Haven retains its traditional charm. In spite of its size, it has an art gallery, pottery and craft shop, and three pubs offering a warm welcome and good, locally sourced food. Just over the headland, or across the wide beach at low tide, is Broad Haven which has a well-stocked convenience store as well as a selection of other eating places, and craft and beach shops.

This seaside village is within easy reach of both north and south of the County, as well as the historic centres of St Davids, Tenby, and Pembroke with its medieval castle. It makes a superb and peaceful centre from which to explore the award-winning golden beaches, dramatic coastal paths, clear waters and amazing wildlife of this splendid part of Wales. There is also a multitude of activities including golf, horse riding, zorbing, karting, family attractions, water sports and much more.

Wildlife abounds. You can take boat trips to fish for mackerel, or to see the dolphins and seals, or visit the island reserves of Skomer, Skokholm, Ramsey and Grassholm with their puffins, shearwaters, gannets and gulls.  The marine reserve in the waters around this section of the coast also offers rewarding snorkelling and diving.  In the autumn secluded coves shelter seal pups.

Other water sports available include bodyboarding, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, and, for the adventurous, coasteering. The village has a slipway for launching small boats and there is a water sports shop which rents out equipment just half a mile away in Broad Haven. Or you can just relax on the sand or on the village green while keeping an eye on children building dams in the stream, exploring rock pools and playing on the sheltered, award-winning family beach.

If you would rather keep your feet on dry land, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park offers some of the best natural walking experiences in Britain. The stunning 186 mile long coastal path runs through Little Haven and there are countless other paths and trails crossing hills and moorlands, passing by prehistoric burial chambers, through secluded coves, river valleys, and ancient woodlands and along the challenging wild cliffs. The Puffin shuttle bus provides easy transport up and down the coast for those who wish to leave their car behind.

Truly, Pembrokeshire offers something for everyone and Little Haven is at its heart!

Beaches near Ivy Cottage

Little Haven is a picturesque old fishing village with steep streets that descend to a sandy beach with a slipway for small boats, including the local inshore rescue boat. The beach itself is popular with swimmers, divers and kayaks in the summer months. At low tide you can walk along the beach to Broad Haven, passing Settlands on the way, there are numerous caves and rock pools to explore however Settlands is only accessible at low tide so be careful not to get cut off here.
Broad Haven
Broad Haven (west) is a large, magnificent area of sand, which runs the entire length of Broad Haven Village and is a regular Blue Flag award winner. It is a favourite with both bathers and water sports enthusiasts and is ideally facilitated with pubs, shops, restaurant, cafe etc. 
Broad Haven's westerly facing sands offer excellent conditions for kite-surfing, kite-buggying, walking and sandcastle building. 
It’s not hard to see why this beach is one of the most popular windsurfing beaches in this area and home to Haven Sports water sports shop. There is a car park at the southern end of the beach opposite Haven Sports and a larger car park a small distance from the beach at the North End of the bay. 

Broad Haven
Druidstone Haven can be found by following the winding coastal road between Nolton Haven and Broad Haven. It is a well hidden, long and sandy beach, enclosed on three sides by spectacular cliffs. Access to the beach is by two fairly steep footpaths. There are no amenities on the beach, but the nearby Druidstone Hotel has a good menu and a lovely outdoor seating area, providing the most glorious views of the beach and as far out to sea as the eye can see.
There is only limited parking on the side of the coastal road, but it is also possible to stop here on the Puffin Shuttle Bus.
St Ishmaels
A large expanse of subtly coloured sand is revealed at this estuary when the tide retreats. Suitable for bathing, although swift currents do arise at some stages of the tide. There are many rock pools for youngsters to explore as well as the stream and stepping stones on the western side - care needed when tide is coming in. There is a free car park on the grass which is adjacent to the footpath.
This lovely and secluded beach is also open to dogs all year around.
The cove of Nolton Haven is a small inlet of pebbles and sand. At low tide it's revealed to be a long and narrow beach, perfectly suited to sunbathers, as it has the added advantage of being sheltered by high cliffs on either side. With the car park behind the beach, Nolton Haven is a good starting point for excellent cliff-top walks along parts of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, finished off with lunch in the Mariners Arms!
St Brides Haven is a shingle cove with sand exposed at low tide. It is excellent for swimming, bathing, snorkelling and diving. There are plenty of rock pools to explore making it great fun for families.

Access to the beach is then down a steep zig-zag path with stone and concrete steps. At the bottom it is a short walk over the sandstone boulders to reach the sand. Once you get to the sand, you'll know it was worth the little stroll!

At low tide, this tranquil little spot of sand makes the perfect spot for a bit of sunbathing and relaxing.
This is where King Henry VII, born at Pembroke Castle, landed his army on the way to the battle of Bosworth. West Dale is very popular with surfers, at its best between low and mid tide - although its not for the inexperienced surfer and make sure you know where the rocks are!
West Dale beach is open to dogs all year around!
Marloes
Marloes Sands is a beautiful, isolated stretch of sand with rocky outcrops that are perfect for scrambling over. It is rarely busy and out of season you are likely to have it all to yourself! From the beach there are good views out to Skokholm and Gateholm Islands, the latter of which is at the North-West end of the beach and can be reached on foot at low tide. The remains of medieval settlements can be found on the island.
Surfing at Marloes Sands is usually excellent, but remember, there is a 1km walk to the beach from the car park.
Note: Keep an eye on the rising tide as it can cover the whole beach fairly quickly.

The Museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Milford Haven. The Museum collection reflects all of these aspects of the town's history, but focuses particularly on the maritime history. The Museum is a voluntarily run museum.

A military fortress, museum and cafe located within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The museum at Chapel Bay Fort is illustrated and explains military technology and weaponry through the ages, with a variety of displays including artillery and associated tools and instruments, WW I, Bomb Disposal and Waterloo amongst others. Volunteers are on hand to answer any question and add to your appreciation of the displays.

Guided tours are conducted by a dedicated team of volunteers and provide access to areas of the fort which are otherwise out of bounds to the public. Tours present further information about Chapel Bay Fort and the defences of Milford Haven and the Royal Dockyard at Pembroke Dock, alongside information about the large exhibits displayed on the terreplein of the fort.

A tour lasts approximately 40 minutes, and is included in the entrance fee to the museum.

Originally constructed in the 12th Century as a fortress made from timber, and has seen visits from a number of famous names including Oliver Cromwell and King Richard II. The castle was later reconstructed in stone, and was often used to house prisoners before being replaced by a new prison building inside the castle grounds in the 19th Century. This building is now home to the Pembrokeshire Records Office. Not much remains of the stone castle other than the stone wall which grandly looks upon the small town below it. A must-visit is the Town Museum, located in the Old Prison Governor's House. With artefacts, prints, paintings and models, this museum tells the history of the castle and the surrounding town.
Pembroke Dock's Flying Boat Centre is unique to the UK. Learn about the RAF Pembroke Dock, the worlds largest flying boat station and the famous Sunderland and Battle of the Atlantic.
Solva Woollen Mill is the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire and is now the only mill in Wales specialising in flat woven carpets, rugs and runners. Its a family business but visitors are welcome to the mill to wander through the weaving sheds, chat to the weavers as they are warping, splitting yarn or weaving. There is a mill shop housed carding engines and spinning mules and a tearoom which is located in the old dye shed, selling tea, coffee and homemade cakes.
Built in the 13th Century, this castle is half fortified manor house and half fully developed medieval castle surrounded by forty acres of land and gardens.

The birthplace of Saint David, this Chapel was built in 1934 on the site of the original house where Non had lived. The Chapel and its accompanying Holy Well were built in dedication to Saint Non, and have since become popular destinations for pilgrimages. Legend has it that springs appeared at each of the significant milestones of Saint David's life, and many believe this Holy Well appeared during his birth and holds many special healing powers.
A popular destination for pilgrimages, this Cathedral is a huge attraction for those interested in Welsh history and/or religion. St. David's Cathedral as we know it today replaced a monastery which was originally founded on the site by Saint David around 589 AD.

The Cathedral still operates a traditional communion service and also holds various special events such as the annual Cathedral Festival. Please note: Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.

This made a lovely change from our normal stamping ground of North Pembrokeshire. With 3 out of 4 knees underperforming, the coastal walking was very manageable.

Far-reaching views across St Brides Bay. The Druidston was quirky, but food good and fabulous location. A wonderful few days and perfect pick you up!

This Access Statement has been prepared by the owner for your information; it is the most recent version that we have received. This statement has been prepared as objectively as possible, however with such a wide remit oversights may be made.

Please ensure all crucial requirements for a safe and enjoyable holiday are present so if you have any queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01437 767600.


Approached via B road from Haverfordwest. All routes into the village involve a steep descent and narrow lanes. There is no parking at the cottage, although cars may stop to unload by the front door. There is a public car park in the village which is about 3 minutes walk away. Seasonal car parking charges.

Main entrance involves a restricted height door and a shallow step from the road and a shallow step into the property over a weather strip. The rear entrance, accessed from a flat concrete area, has similar constraints, although the door is of normal height.

On the ground floor the cottage has three living rooms, a kitchen, utility area and shower room with sink and lavatory. There are two six inch steps from the kitchen into the extension which houses one of the living rooms, the shower room and the utility area. Access to the sink in the “galley-style” utility area is very restricted. The washing machine is more easily reached.

Compact, fitted kitchen has cooker with low-level oven, waist level grill/oven and ceramic hob. Controls are at the front of the cooker. There is a high-level fridge which starts at waist height above a three-drawer freezer. There is a microwave.

All rooms are well-lit.

Access to the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom is by a constricted dogs-leg flight of stairs. Since these rooms are partially in the roof, there is limited headroom and the bedroom doors are low on this floor.

TV/DVD and musical entertainment are all operated by remote. Radio and TV reception can be patchy. The cottage has Wifi.

Cottage phone accepts calls, but only emergency and freephone outgoing calls can be made. Mobile phone reception can be limited, depending on the phone supplier. If mobile phone access is vital, please ask your phone supplier about coverage.

Guide dog welcome.

Garden reached by a flight of irregular steep stone steps. The small garden and patio and other garden features are on the hillside above cottage roof height. There is a fenced drop into a bank. The area to the rear of the stone garden wall has been grassed to control weeds and should not be considered an accessible part of the garden.

A limited bus service runs from Broad Haven ( approx 20 minutes walk away) into Haverfordwest. From May - September the Puffin daily bus shuttle calls in the village on its way up and down the coast. In the winter this timetable is restricted.
