Merlin House is a stunning, contemporary, house which nestles in the sand dunes overlooking Freshwater East, just yards from the glorious sandy beach.
Set down a steep unmade lane and drive, a wonderful decked balcony runs along the front of the house edged with glass to give unimpeded views of the bay, it is ideal for enjoying an alfresco meal, while floor to ceiling sliding doors open up the spacious first floor living space which truly allow the seaside vista in and provides breathtaking sea views.
Beautifully furnished in a contemporary minimalistic style and finished to a high standard with washed oak floors and a classic mix of iconic modern pieces including Ron Arad''s voido rocking chair and Jasper Morrison air chairs mixed with vintage items, in muted natural tones to give a calming relaxing feel. Further complimented by the limited edition prints from local photographers David Wilson and artist John Knapp Fisher. Soak up the wonderful view over the bay as you laze in the master bedroom which also opens to the balcony. Stairs lead down to further bedrooms below on the ground floor.
There are 2 pubs within walking distance serving food or a further selection in Lamphey just a few minutes drive away. The award winning Stackpole Inn is just a short drive along the stunning headline. Ideal for water sports or boating enthusiasts with a slipway in the bay, if you can tear yourself away there are a number of other beautiful bays, sandy beaches and seaside villages to explore nearby.

The Rio Olympics entertained us. the weather wasn't bad either.
