Lanyards

Comfortably furnished throughout, the first floor lounges offer lovely views directly over the Cleddau estuary. The well-appointed spacious kitchen/diner to the rear leads to the terraced gardens with steps leading to a small lawn, herb and flower beds. Two spacious bedrooms on the second floor with A frame beams also overlook the water. A shared front gravel driveway has private parking and seating and is the perfect spot to relax and watch passing vessels.

Ideally located within the County, with South Pembrokeshire’s beautiful sandy beaches and the historic town of Pembroke just a short drive away.

A lovely holiday home for couples and families alike.

Beaches near Lanyards

Freshwater East
Freshwater East is a wide bay of golden sand and blue water backed by dunes and grassy headlands, there is a freshwater stream running through the beach to the sea at the Southern end. Popular with boat owners, divers, fishermen and surfers alike, it has a shop, pub, caravan park and toilets - all set behind the dunes. .
Stackpole Quay beach is a stony beach which is only revealed at low tide. Stackpole Quay is a small harbour set in the cliffs between Barafundle and Freshwater East, it is a favourite spot for kayakers as there are plenty of caves to explore. There are no dog restrictions. 
Freshwater East
Swanlake Bay is shingle beach, accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path situated between Manorbier and Freshwater East. At low tide the golden sand and rock pools are revealed making Swanlake Bay beach worth the trip - it has been one of Pembrokeshire best kept secrets as even during the Summer months you can still find most of the beach to yourself.
Aberbach Bay
No doubt one of Pembrokeshire’s most breath-taking beaches, Barafundle consists of picturesque beauty, golden sands, and sparkling blue waters and is backed by dunes and trees. It’s easy to make comparisons to that of a Mediterranean location. 
East facing and well sheltered from any winds, this is an ideal hideaway spot. The steep steps that descent from the cliff path down to the beach need to be respected, however the prize at the end is completely worth the stroll. There are toilets and a cafe at the car park half a mile away at Stackpole Quay, which can be accessed along the headland coastal path.

Freshwater West is a huge sandy beach backed by sand dunes and has a rocky reef at the southern end of the beach. It is a haven for surfers, who are drawn to the area by the big Atlantic rollers, so it seems only natural that the beach should be the setting for the Welsh National Surfing Championships. The water here is in pristine condition and home to many species of bird life, seals and fish. However please note, it can be dangerous to swimmers because of strong undertows and hazardous quicksands, so families with young children should be on their guard. In the main season there are lifeguards patrolling the beach.
There is a large car park above the beach with W/C. Look out for Cafe mor parked here too- an award winning food outlet with a menu focused around local seafood dishes. Cafe Mor is available from Easter until the end of the summer season.
Freshwater West has featured in two huge films over the not so distant past - Ridley Scott's Robin Hood and also Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, where it was used as the back drop for Dobby's Shell Cottage.
This lovely Pembrokeshire beach is also dog friendly all year around.
Bosherston
Backed by sand dunes, which are an important habitat for wildlife, this beautiful beach is a vast area of soft pale sand. Offshore is a large and dramatically-shaped limestone stack, known to locals as Church Rock. The stream running down to the beach drains from Bosherston’s Lily Ponds, part of the Stackpole Estate. The lakes cover about 80 acres and support a rich variety of wildlife including otters, water-fowl, dragonflies and water lilies. Forming part of a National Nature Reserve managed jointly by the National Trust and the Countryside Council for Wales, these Lily Ponds are idyllic to explore and are also dog friendly. 
Grab an ice-cream and a cold drink from the car park’s van during the summer months, or take a walk or a short drive back to Bosherston village and try a fabulous afternoon tea at Ye Olde Worlde Café or a hot meal at The Bosherston Inn. 

Manorbier
One of the prettiest beaches in Pembrokeshire, overlooked by the impressive medieval Manorbier Castle and the 12th century church. The beach itself is sandy, with rocks and rockpools at either end and a pebble bank along the high tide mark, and is very popular with surfers. It is home to a stone cromlech known as the King's Quoit. To find it, follow the signs from the A4139 onto the B4585. Parking is available in a National Trust Car Park above the beach and along the low cliff at the northern end of the beach. Toilets can be found in the large car park and shops and a pub in the village.
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.
West Angle bay is a picturesque, sandy beach which overlooks Thorn Island, and is met by The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from both sides. Angle offers the enthusiastic tourist a never ending list of activities, from walking The Coast Path, to swimming in the sea and exploring the hidden castles!
Skrinkle Haven beach is a sandy/shingly cove between Old Castle Head and Lydstep Point, 1 mile south-east of Manorbier village. Skrinkle Haven is accessed via its neighbour, Church Doors which is a little cove with two high-arched caves in the cliffs which resemble the doors of a church. The two coves are separated by a tall thin limestone ridge. At low tide it is possible to walk around the ridge, but only for a short period of time. There is also a narrow cave linking the two coves - care is needed as the cave is slippery and one end is in a rock pool. Access to Church Doors is via 140 metal steps.

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.

 

Customer Reviews of Lanyards

Chris & Wilf

A lovely relaxing holiday! despite dodgy weather! We enjoyed the comfortable, well appointed house and quite at home here. Particularly appreciated the suggestions for walks in the house folder - especially the walk to Broad Haven via Lily ponds. Also loved the beach and Cliffs at Manobier.


Brian, Tina & Kate

Relaxing week next to the water with big tides. Lovely at the woods near Blackpool Mill (nr Canaston Bridge)despite the heavy rain. Barafundle and the Bosherston Lily Ponds are fantastic this time of the year and views acorss to Lundy


Clare, Roger, Josh + Gabriel

Lovely house, interesting location. Ate once at Ferry Inn on first night as arrived too late to cook. Food ok, otherwise it's handyfor a pint while watching the boats go by. Definatley recommend Bosherston ponds and broad haven Beach. Claws Shellfish at Johnston worth a trip - very helpful advice about cooking crab + lobster. With thanks


Jim, Claire, Joseph, Daniel & Benedict

We had another very nice, relaxing holiday at Lanyards and felt at home very quickly. It is a very good place for a family holiday. We really liked the having the shore so close. We went fishing often and caught a decent size mackeral at Little Haven. We enjoyed some great days on the beach and a day at Caldey Island. We probably ate in more than out but we did have a couple of meals at The Jolly Sailor and a meal at a place in Tenby. We had a great time here and will hope to return sometime soon. Many thanks!


The Robinson Family

We had a lovely time despite the weather being mixed. We did a lot of things, like horse ride at Hundleton and swimming at our favourite beach Broad Haven south. The accomadation is great and there is so much to do in Pembroke. A good restaurant is The Stackpole Inn. The food is delicious!! Thank you for having us!

Although the weather has been extremely wet we have still enjoyed our holiday. We have spent our time on the beach at Freshwater West, Angle and Marloes Sands. When the weather got too wet we went swimming at Pembroke leisure centre. We also enjoyed Pembroke Castle and Folly Farm. Wish we were staying longer but hope to plan a return journey soon.
