In the main season there are lifeguards patrolling the beach.

Customer Reviews of Silk Purse

Kevin and Yvonne

We have been coming to this part of Wales for the past 10 years, and must say that this is the best cottage we have stayed in. It is lovely, so clean, and the treats/welcome was wonderful. Weather has been great – sunny every day, although the rest of England has seen snow! Managed to wear T-shirts and shorts! Very nice people in the village too. Molly the dog is 13 years old and has had a lovely time here as the location offers so much. Coming back this June!


Ange, Nigel and Inny

Wow!!! Amazing cottage – homely yet functional for us as walkers; super “treats”. Weather was kind to us – suntans in April!!! We will definitely return. Thank you.


Sarah, Pete, Laura and Millie

Lovely cottage, lovely views. We were lucky with the weather and visited Tenby, Freshwater West, West Angle Bay, and also drove to St. Davids and took a boat out to Ramsey Island – well worth it. Thank you for the lovely extra treats. We will recommend this cottage.


Paul and Sue

To say that we don’t want to go home would be an understatement! A lovely cottage, full of thoughtful touches wherever you look. Stackpole Inn is well worth a visit; and we enjoyed walks at Freshwater West, from Bosherston to the coast, and also went up to St. David’s by car via Newgale (aptly named!). Thank you for creating a perfect get-away retreat.


Yvonne and Colin

A wild, wet and windy week, which left the beaches deserted just for us! Lots of walking, then home to a hot bath and warm, welcoming cottage. We made full use of the takeaway food at the Angle shop – their Sunday lunch was excellent. Thank you for all the extra touches, they are appreciated by all. Looking forward to returning


Kate, Tony and Seren

The cottage is great - so cosy and well-equipped. We loved the area and the lovely welcome we received. The extra touches are very thoughtful. Highly recommended!


Williams Family

A lovely cosy cottage with beautiful decorations – we loved the ladybirds! Thank you for a beautiful stay and for the Welsh cakes and sweets. We loved the walks around Angle and discovered Chapel Bay Fort with its museum and beautiful tearoom. Freshwater West and Broadhaven South were lovely but stormy; the lakes were as lovely as ever; and Stackpole Mencap Gardens are well worth a visit. St. Govan’s Inn serves beautiful, tasty food.


Tony and Karen

Yet another wonderful stay at Silk Purse. The extra touches, as always, are greatly appreciated. For the time of year we had really mild weather which meant we were able to get out and about. Watching the filming at Broadhaven South was exciting; and the takeaway food at the Angle village shop was fab, especially the curry and the excellent fish and chips. Well recommended!


Inna, Wayne, Indi and Josh

Our second visit and as stunning as before. Thanks for another warm welcome. We walked part of the Coastal Path – what stunning views! – and we had a very enjoyable day fishing in the bay. We are planning our 3rd visit next year.


Warwick and Judith

On our 4th visit what is there left to say: - the Silk Purse is as excellent as ever; - two weeks of marvellous weather; - we plan to be back in September 2016


Percival Family

A very cosy cottage. Thanks for the chocolates and the Welsh cakes. Recommend a day trip to Marloes Beach – great for rock-pooling; Freshwater West was good for body-boarding; and Anna’s Welsh Zoo is worth a visit. Weather could have been better.


Andy, Di, David and Megan

Wonderful to be back in Silk Purse and Angle. Thank you again for all the wonderful welcoming touches. The weather has been very kind (and even hot on 2 days) allowing us to visit Broadhaven, Freshwater West, and Angle at their stunning best. The children loved “body boarding” and Tess the dog had some amazing walks. We really recommend the “van” at Freshwater West – best burgers and bacon butties ever! We hope to be back next year!


Chris, Helen, Olivia and Isla

Silk Purse is fantastic – cosy and well presented. The special touches on our arrival were very much appreciated and enjoyed. We have loved our time in Wales and with the fab weather we have been to lots of beaches. Barafundle is a must see; Tenby was a pleasant surprise; and Wavecrest @ West Angle Bay has lovely food and service. Thanks again.


Jayne, Mark and Erin

Had a lovely week in Silk Purse in Angle. A real home from home. Weather was a bit up and down, but that didn’t stop us visiting the lovely beaches - Broadhaven, Manorbier, Barafundle, West Angle Bay, Freshwater West. Stackpole Inn was lovely for a quiet drink outside. Also enjoyed Tenby and Folly Farm.


Vernice and Elwyn

Thank you for all the care you give to ensuring we have a happy and comfortable holiday. Silk Purse and our “seaside landlady” are very special; and our home county never disappoints.


Judith and Janet

We were very lucky with the weather and had a wonderful week. The marvellous accommodation added to a very relaxing week. Thank you for a warm welcome and all the extra delightful touches in the cottage.


Richard

We enjoyed staying in this lovely cottage – comfortable, peaceful and very welcoming. Thank you for a great holiday.


Edward, Di and Jane

A return visit and just as lovely as ever. The treats were much appreciated; and the walks have been excellent. We particularly enjoyed the guided tour of Chapel Bay Fort, having first seen the semi-derelict state over 30 years ago! We shall be back again to such a comfortable cottage.


Evans Family

Thank you for a fantastic week in this lovely cottage. We really felt at home and loved spending time on the beach and in the village. We loved the beach café and the Point Inn. We have visited Pembrokeshire many times but have never stayed in such a beautiful cottage. We will definitely be back.


Norton and Sandra

What can I say that has not already been said. We’ve stayed in many cottages both in Angle and throughout Pembrokeshire, but can honestly say that Silk Purse comes top of the list for comfort and location. Every small detail has been thought out to make visits very enjoyable. So nice to meet old friends from the village and visit our favourite places, but what made this visit more special was to return to Silk Purse each evening.


Colin and Yvonne

Despite the weather, gale force winds and heavy rain, the couple of days when the sun came out were absolutely splendid. We did manage to visit Freshwater West a couple of times, both on a windy and deserted day and late afternoon sunny, warm and deserted day – bliss! Thank you for this home from home, the little touches, the warm welcome after a long drive, the warm environment to watch the grass grow, and the sky. The perfect and safe garden for Bonnie to roam. The space to relax. I will miss our morning walks to the shop for the paper, and then on to the point, lifeboat, fort and beach on our walk back. We will be back. To those who follow – enjoy!


The Curtis Family

We’ve had a relaxing time at Silk Purse. Beautifully renovated cottage and idyllic views. The kids loved playing with the friendly neighbourhood cat every morning and having lovely walks on Angle beach. Fun trips to Folly Farm, Tenby and Blue Lagoon. Thanks for a very special half term break.


The Dahmen - Beumer Family

Two weeks in this fabulous cottage lie behind us; we enjoyed every single day! The weather was (nearly) perfect, the coast is magnificent. We did a lot of walks with our dog on the beaches and the coastal path. We were overwhelmed by the views. Stack Rocks and the Green Bridge of Wales are hidden treasures.


The Matthews

A beautifully appointed cottage and a lovely welcome. Thank you. We have enjoyed our holiday very much and the weather was kind to us until Thursday. We have walked every day and visited many beautiful beaches. Here in Angle there is a lovely walk up over the headland and down past the Old Point House for a well-earned drink overlooking East Angle Bay. The highlight of our holiday was our impromptu visit to the Angle Lifeboat Station and meeting the very friendly and helpful resident crew, who invited us back to watch the practice launch. Everyone in Angle is so friendly, it has added to the overall enjoyment of our lovely holiday.


The Lee Family

The recipe for a relaxing holiday is:- - good accommodation - peace and quiet - beautiful scenery and views Silk Purse has provided all the ingredients.


Edworthy

Thank you for a wonderful gem of a holiday cottage. We have enjoyed a fantastic week on the beaches, surfing and making sand sculptures. Silk Purse is beautiful with all the home comforts we needed. We loved sitting and playing in the garden in the sunshine and its shelter from the sometimes “fresh” wind. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our return to Pembrokeshire and hope to come again next year.


The Cribben Family

Thank you sooo much once again for a fantastic week in this lovely part of Pembrokeshire. The weather has been amazing, so we’ve had a few swims in thesea and plenty of games on the beach. We love the special touches of welcome – they always make our first few days in the cottage very special. We love the “Wave Crest” in the bay. What a great addition to Angle.


The Walton Family

Walton – September 2014 We very much appreciated the warm welcome and helpful tips on arrival at Silk Purse. Great walks, weather, food and wine. The sunsets on the coast are breathtaking. All in all a very special place


The Roberts Family

Roberts – September/October 2014 Amazing weather for the time of year – sunshine and very warm for the last two weeks. Silk Purse is as excellent as ever; and Wave Crest is a major addition to Angle. Already planning to be back in 2015.


The Chin Family

What a delightful cottage! A home away from home. Great place from which to see all that Pembrokeshire has to offer.


The Murdoch Family

A beautiful cottage. It has been a pleasure to stay here for the week. Bella enjoyed the lovely walks on the beach morning and evening. Amazing beaches – even in February


Frampton

WOW! This has been amazing! All the small touches make this a home from home. We loved the people – everyone is so friendly and helpful. The beach is fantastic and even though the weather was nor brilliant, we has an amazing stay. You will definitely see us again – we are planning to walk the coastal path. We don’t actually want to leave.


Hiscox

This is our third visit to Silk Purse – we love it here. We have had another lovely week living in this wonderful cottage. It is always so clean and we get a very warm welcome. We used to bring our caravan to Angle for several years until age caught up with us.

Samantha, Neil and William Sawyer

What a perfect week! It has been wonderful to be back in Pembrokeshire and Silk Purse again. Having missed a trip last year it's been lovely to have a whole week here this time. The weather has been amazing, the beaches (West Angle Bay, Freshwater West and Broad Haven) have been stunning as always and the sunsets beautiful. William celebrated his birthday here which was particularly special having been born in Pembrokeshire 5 years ago! It has been great catching up with old friends and places and I'm already planning next years trip! Linda, thank you so so much for everything that makes a stay here such a treat. Flowers, wine, chocolates, welsh cakes etc. William announced this morning that he would like to stay forever we too wish we could pick Silk Purse up and take it home!


Denise and Andy

What a superbly appointed cottage with fantastic views and such a lovely welcome from Linda - She really does think of everything! We have has a fantastic week and go home refreshed but exhausted after all the amazing walks we've done! Would love to return soon!


Tony and Karen

After staying here a few times before, where else could we possibly decide to spend our Honeymoon! Silk Purse - Fantastic! Weather - FANTASTIC (Yes in November) and Angle as fantastic as ever! Food and hospitality at the Hibernia was really good. New favourite area- Marloes Beach. Well worth the effort of finding. Thank you Linda for the special extra touches - we will return - Again!


Allan family

Wow … we have had the most amazing week! Such a relaxing family time together. Whatever the weather we have always found something to do – collecting stones and shells; we have even painted our own ladybirds and carved pumpkins for Hallowe’en. We’ve had wonderful days out – but best of all just chilling out in this cosy home. Thank you. .


SAWYER FAMILY

We nearly didn’t make it back to Silk Purse this year, but our last minute trip has been a real treat once again. We’ve spent much time on the beaches, with much digging and treasure hunting by William. The views from the main window are as delightful as ever, and relaxing in Silk Purse at the end of the day is total bliss. As I said last year, and the year before – next year we must come for longer. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


Roberts family

If you wish to switch off from the pressures of modern day living there can be few places as good as the Silk Purse. This has been our very pleasant experience during the last two weeks in this delightfully situated, well designed and fully equipped barn conversion. We are already planning to return.


Elliott family

Our third visit has probably been our best so far. We have been able to slow down the clock and totally relax. We were made to feel most welcome. We only had 2 days rain in a fortnight – so Angle strikes again with its own weather! Thanks for a lovely stay.


Nicolson family

The cottage is absolutely lovely – wish we could pick it up and take it home! Thanks for the welcoming touches – the tea and Welsh cakes went down well after our long journey. We had lovely weather and took advantage of the sun-trap patio at every opportunity when Bailey wasn’t dragging us off to the beaches. Lovely relaxing week – just what we needed. Thank you so much for your lovely cottage.


Holmes family

This is such a lovely cottage, we really don’t want to leave. Thank you for the personal touches and for creating such a cosy home. We have had beautiful weather all week, so we have visited all the beaches!


Cribben family

We have really enjoyed our return visit here. Such a pleasure staying in this fantastic cottage. We have managed 3 swims in Freshwater West and a great BBQ and fire on the beach; some coastal walks in the wind and rain; breakfasts in the garden in the sun; and of course the picking of juicy, ripe blackberries to make a delicious crumble! Thank you for all the little touches .


Sandy family

Phillips family and Me magazine

A Weekend by the Sea ( “Me” magazine Dec 2011) “On arrival at our chosen cottage in the village of Angle, we pulled into the courtyard at the end of the village to be greeted by a welcoming red door housing a pretty stone building. This was “Silk Purse” and we were quick to realise that this cottage was no average abode. “The name, born out of a challenge from the old saying “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” is testament to the owners and their vision in creating a luxury five star property from the dilapidated shell of a cow barn and pig sty. After months of toil, they have created their own “Silk Purse”, retaining many original features and using much of the original stone and timber as possible. “On entering the cottage, we were firstly hit by the beautiful charm of the building, yet the gentle warmth under our feet told us we were not going to be compromised on amenities and comforts. As we opened each of the doors to the lounge and bedrooms, the continuous whoops of delight said it all. “The bedrooms were spacious and both bathrooms, one en-suite, held luxuriously soft bath towels, which for me is always a good measure of the quality of a property. As the children settled down in the wonderful comfort of the lounge, tucking into the welcome chocolates, I too had a find in the kitchen, enjoying the tasty Welsh cakes and essentials, thoughtfully left by the owner. “As we had arrived in the dark on a Friday evening, it was wonderful to wake to the peace and tranquillity and wonderful views that enveloped in front of our eyes. To the back of the cottage was a beautiful meadow and we were eager to get outside to explore. Our dog was eager too and as he raced out of the back door into the small patio garden, his eagerness to get out further was unbearable. The air was so fresh with the crispness of the wind, that we were compelled to sit and just gaze at the meadow in front of us. Only the smells of bacon and sausages coming from the fabulously equipped kitchen could drag us back inside. “Now we had slept well (king-sized bed a bonus), eaten well, and we were ready to experience what this area had to offer. “The village of Angle is relatively small, located on a narrow peninsula on the very southwest tip of Wales in Pembrokeshire. It has two pubs, a village shop and a church, St. Mary’s. There is a great community here with lots of historical events and some hidden treasures to explore…… “At West Angle Bay we found a large beach of soft sand and gently rolling surf which offered views of the fortification that once protected Milford Haven. Designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the rock pools in the bay housing small green starfish named “Asterina phylactica”, this sheltered beach offers an interesting insight to the past with the Thorn Island Fort in the distance. “It is a calming spot and there are many walks along the cliffs that allow you to take in the true beauty of the sea ….. and trace the path through woodlands and fields. As the afternoon sun disappeared we were happy to be making our way back to Silk Purse. We were set for a cosy night at the cottage, as we only had to slip across to the pub, The Hibernian, in the village, to pick up the take-away we had ordered earlier that day. It is a wonderful feeling to have enjoyed the day in the fresh air in breathtaking surroundings and to have the further joy of returning to a cottage so well equipped and luxurious, you are happy to spend more time there.” (Extract from “Me” Magazine, Dec.2011) March 2012 Wilks Family


Franklin family

A very relaxing enjoyable week. Weather has been very kind for the time of year. The cottage is lovely –worth 5 Star. Welcome gifts a great touch.


Cogly family

This has been just what we hoped for – a break in a beautiful clean, comfortable cottage, with lovely cliff and beach walks nearby, plus castles.


Sawyer family

Lovely to return to Silk Purse again this year – and once again we wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next year!


Davis family

Best cottage we’ve ever stayed in – and we’ve stayed in lots! Best weather we’ve ever had in September – it’s official. Totally worn out our Westie, Lucy.


Dyas-Catten Family

Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful relaxing cottage with so many thoughtful extras that have been greatly enjoyed. You may not make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, but you have certainly made one out of a sow’s home! We have had a marvellous time being by the sea again – exploring, pottering around, surfing etc. Everything being animal- friendly is excellent too. Zocco had a great time.


Howell family

This is a fabulous cottage – the best ever. We couldn’t have had a better base for comfort and relaxation. Definitely 5 Star.


Butler family

Had a great week relaxing in such a lovely cottage and beautiful part of Wales. It’s great how the cottage is set up to welcome you with everything you need – right down to the bottle of milk. Altai (the dog) loved going out and about on the beaches and around the headland. Lovely family holiday, and we definitely plan to return.


Goveas family

Lovely cottage in a great part of Wales. We loved the patio, the garden and the cows! The cottage has been just what we wanted and more. We appreciated the supply of things like foil and dishwasher tablets (and the Welsh cakes!), so thank you for making this week so easy.


Cribben family

Great weather and a fantastic cottage. Everything we needed was here, including the cows! We went to Freshwater West five times in one week – plenty of boarding and silly games on the beach. Great coastal walks, even in the sun.


Awbery family

A fantastic holiday – the boys loved Freshwater West with their body boards etc. The cottage has provided luxury at the end of each day.


Elliot family

The cottage provided the relaxation we are looking for, and it’s nice not to have the noise of passing traffic. We were able to fit in all our activities, including breakfast and afternoon teas on the terrace!


Amer family

Superb cottage, well-equipped and beautifully decorated. I could live here.


lacy family

We’ve had a fantastic stay in Angle. The weather has been great and we even saw a dolphin in the bay at Barafundle. We’ve previously stayed in a number of National Trust cottages, but Silk Purse beats them all – lovely décor, great views, comfy sofas and beds, everything we needed.


Thomas family

Well, what can I say – yet another wonderful holiday in beautiful “Silk Purse”. We have spent hours down at Angle Bay, where the children loved playing in the sea, rock-pooling and building sandcastles. We will definitely be back.


Rafferty family

We have had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful, very well-equipped cottage. We have had great weather and have enjoyed many walks in the area, especially the Coastal Path. After a walk in the hot sunshine it is good to chill out on the patio and watch the cows. We could not have asked for a more comfortable or luxurious cottage, and we hope to return.


Lodge family

As everyone before us has said – what a wonderful, comfortable, well-equipped and welcoming place “Silk Purse” is, from the Welsh cakes and much-longed-for cup of tea on arrival, to the luxurious bedding and towels. The attention to detail is first class. We have been unlucky at times with the weather, but have enjoyed staying “at home”! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I would just like to add that we have rented various properties over the years, but “Silk Purse” is the highest standard by far.


Pettit family

What a wonderful surprise to find this lovely spot, only outdone by the cottage. “Silk Purse” is outstanding – extremely comfortable and easy to live in. A real home from home. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and have seen lots of gorgeous places. We have some lovely memories and “snaps” to take back to Australia with us.


Chivers family

We have had plenty of sunshine and some great walks around here. Angle is a lovely village and we couldn’t ask for a more comfortable place to stay than Silk Purse.


Bland family

There is nothing more we can add to all the complimentary comments relating to “Silk Purse”.


Bratton family

Amazing week in an amazing cottage!! Beautifully done out and well worth the 5 stars. We have enjoyed the gorgeous walks and beaches along the coast; and we also love the small quirky towns. Hope to come back in the future.


Thomas family

Lovely relaxing week. The property is well-equipped and extremely comfortable. We have walked our socks off and are going home for a rest!


Benson family

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely renovated property – one of the best cottages we’ve stayed in in the UK. Great weather for March and some fantastic beach walks.


Brookes family

Had a wonderful week, enjoying the beautiful cottage and surrounding area. Crocuses and daffodils came out especially for us!


Goddard family

A fantastic and inspirational cottage. A big thank you for a special Valentine break.


Armitage family

Outstanding. The old “pig pen” was a real treat. See you again soon.


Connolly family

Angle and the surrounding area has always been absolutely fantastic; and Silk Purse has been a remarkable base-camp.


Sawyer family

It is such a treat to come and stay here. “Silk Purse” really is the perfect place to stay, with all the comforts and extra touches which make it so special. I didn’t think it was possible to relax with an 18 month toddler in tow, but within a short time we felt chilled and truly on holiday. We’ll definitely be back. PS. Thanks for arranging such a beautiful sunset on Monday evening!


Hughes family

You have indeed proved that you can “make a silk purse from a sow’s ear”. It has been such a pleasure to enjoy this lovely cottage and its environment. It has been a joy to return to this home-from-home after visiting places in Pembrokeshire. This has been our best holiday home ever.


Williams family

Very enjoyable stay. Cottage extremely comfortable. I think you’ve thought of everything. Love the secluded garden – a real home from home. We’ll take home happy memories of Angle and Silk Purse.


Thomas family

Excellent stay. Cottage much larger than expected from illustrations. Weather brilliant – although a little windy for sailing. Good walks, as ever. Saw seals and pups.


Elliot family


Cockburn family

Great facilities in this very comfortable cottage. Angle beach has everything – sand, rock pools, space for kite-flying and a lagoon! Alec loved the treetop trail at Heatherton, especially the big zip wire; Hannah and Cheryl had a great horse ride at Marros; the cycle route from Green Arch to St. Govan’s Chapel is recommended and surprisingly flat! Hannah would like to live here because it’s “awesome”, and we’ve only just scratched the surface of what Pembrokeshire has to offer. So we will be back. THE SILK PURSE RULES.


McFarlane family

Had a great time! We loved the cottage. Couldn’t have wished for a better holiday – just wish we had booked longer.


Watts family

We all had a fantastic time. The cottage is wonderful with excellent views. Charlie loved the cows! We had some great days crabbing in Carew, fishing off the beach, excellent walks and fantastic surf at Freshwater West.


Rowbottom family

We have had a lovely week. The cottage has been perfect. In the words of Arnie “We will be back”!


Robinson family

What a wonderfully designed cottage with every facility you could wish for. We have enjoyed sitting in the beautifully secluded garden, watched over by the cows. We would love to stay here again.


Court family

The cottage is beautiful. We’ve been very comfortable here and we’ve really enjoyed coming back to it each day.


Gold family

The cottage is beautiful. We’ve been very comfortable here and we’ve really enjoyed coming back to it each day.


Hughes family

This cottage was perfect; the small touches make it very special. It is clean, very well laid-out and full of character. Nothing is missing. The beaches around here are fantastic, and the area is perfect for walking and photography. Thank you – we had a lovely time.



Brookes family

We’ve had a super week in this beautifully renovated cottage – the attention to detail is very special. It was good to see the original photos of how “Silk Purse” came to be. The weather has been glorious considering it is February and we have enjoyed walking areas of the coastline. Angle is a lovely little village and we have enjoyed strolling to the beach and cosy evenings in the cottage.


Rowbotham Family

We have had a lovely week. The cottage has been perfect. Changeable weather but hey, who cares!! In the words of Arnie - "We will be back". Thank you


Robinson family

What a wonderfully designed cottage with every facility you could wish for. We have enjoyed sitting in the beautifully secluded garden, watched over by the cows. We would love to stay here again.


Sutton family

We have found a new entertainment this holiday - watching the cows. We have enjoyed a very relaxing holiday in this beautiful countryside, away from everything. Thank you for all your hints and a comfortable cottage.


Gold family

The cottage is beautiful. We've been very comfortable here and have enjoyed coming back to it each day. Our favourite places are Freshwater West beach - 10 minutes walk from the cottage - it's a shame the Harry Potter house has gone;Barafundle Bay, St David's Cathedral, Blue Lagoon (Joey, 9 and Laura, 7), Pembroke Castle and brass rubbing. Thank you so much for Silk Purse. Great memories. Laura: It was very nice and smart. I liked the cows in the field, the ones behind the fence.


Hughes family

The cottage is perfect. The small touches made it feel very special. It is clean, very well laid out and full of character. Nothing is missing. The beaches around here are fantastic, especially Barafundle Bay and Whitesands Bay near St.Davids. The area is perfect for photographing wildlife and views. Thank you - we've had a lovely time.


Brooks family

The Aldridge Family

Had a fantastic time. Cottage is brilliant – very kiddie friendly, especially the entertainment provided by the “moo-cows”. Folly Farm is excellent for wet days. Sunday lunch at Stackpole Inn is excellent (booking advisable); tea and cakes at Stackpole Quay is delicious. See you again. Best holiday for a couple of years.


The Wilcox Party

A beautiful cottage helped to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Lots of lovely times visiting local castles and beaches, surfing, walking and having plenty of tea and cakes! Would love to return. Thank you.


The Wilson Family

It was a great pleasure to stay in your very comfortable and unusual cottage. The weather being so good, we used Angle as a base to see all the special places nearby and we shall take home some very happy memories.


The Dodge Family

This was our first visit to Angle and we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage is extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed. Angle is a very quiet and relaxing place and one day we hope to come back. Thank you for an excellent holiday.


The Yau Family

Great cottage, very well equipped. Attention to detail is important for a comfortable stay. Good to wake up without noise of traffic. Weather’s been good this week and we’ve had nice days out visiting different areas and beaches. Thank you for a lovely stay.


The Reader Family

We had a great week in a beautiful cottage, in a lovely village that we used to visit many years ago! This place is a real home from home; everything has been thought of. A perfect place to spend our holiday.


The Fennell Family

Another year and another week in Angle. This wonderful cottage wrapped its arms around us and we enjoyed the peace and rest it gave us. As always, our friends in the village welcomed us back like only friends can. A wonderful cottage in a wonderful village. Many thanks.


The Perkins Party

“Silk Purse” is a cottage to die for! The fittings, furnishing and décor are to an extremely high standard. We received the warmest welcome and the little extras were much appreciated. We have loved our daily early morning walks and have had the privilege of being invited to view the Lifeboat Station. We have visited everywhere from Wiseman’s Bridge to Solva and Whitesands Bay – but there is nothing, not even Barafundle, that compares with Angle. The West Bay and the East Bay are jewels. Even Chevron on a night looks fab! The local people are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We’ve had a fabulous week’s holiday.


The Aldridge Family

Had a fantastic time. Cottage is brilliant – very kiddie friendly, especially the entertainment provided by the “moo-cows”. Folly Farm is excellent for wet days. Sunday lunch at Stackpole Inn is excellent (booking advisable); tea and cakes at Stackpole Quay is delicious. See you again. Best holiday for a couple of years.


The Little Family

Had a great stay despite the weather. The cottage is quiet and comfortable with every facility. We have visited SW Wales many times and looked out some of the more difficult beaches like Skrinkle Haven and Barafundle. Marloes is much over rated, but Freshwater West and Broadhaven are excellent. Awaiting the day that Thorn Island is opened up. Many thanks again.


The Cushen Family

We have had a brilliant stay. What a lovely cottage – it felt like home as soon as we arrived. Everything we could possibly want was here; and the cows have given us such a warm welcome! We have enjoyed Freshwater West with its dramatic seas and stunning views, Pembroke Castle and Carew Castle. Tenby has given us a couple of good days and we enjoyed watching the seals on the Seal Safari. The walk around Angle Bay is lovely. It is with great sadness that we head home leaving this lovely spot. This is a holiday we will always remember. Thank you.


The Wright Family

We have had a fantastic week. Had a lovely swim at Barafundle Bay – a beautiful place. We have loved our encounters with the cows every evening! “Silk Purse” cottage is gorgeous and very comfortable. Thank you.


The Chappell Family

“Silk Purse” is a beautiful cottage. We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in Angle and we hope to be back soon. Visited many beaches during our stay – Freshwater West, Freshwater East, Angle beach and the beautiful Barafundle. Weather turned out to be great for most of the week and we got plenty of fishing in. The mackerel count must now be quite low in Tenby! The Swan Lake Inn in Jameston is good for meals and has a lovely beer garden. Thanks ever so much – hope to be back next year.


The Pillinger Family

A lovely cottage, very well equipped. A couple of days of sunshine – our 10month old twins enjoyed their first paddle in the sea.


The Lewis Family

A fantastic cottage, beautifully converted and very well equipped. Super views and very relaxing. Saundersfoot and Barafundle beach – beautiful when the sun was shining. Stunning views from Manorbier and Freshwater West – looking at the surfers from the headland. Wish we could have stayed longer! Many thanks – hope to come back again.


The Barker Family

Lovely cottage, peaceful setting, changeable weather. Folly Farm was good for the young ones and the Blue Lagoon with its water flumes was great for everyone.


The Jones Family

What a fabulous cottage! Certainly the best we’ve ever had. So tastefully decorated and so much space. Zeta loved her runs on the beach after supper every night.


The Addis Family

We have had a great week with beautiful weather, lovely coastal walks, and just relaxing in this amazing cottage. We have had many trips to Angle – this was the best. Thank you.


The Farrelly Family

Had a fab week enjoying the Pembrokeshire coast. Lots of days sunning ourselves on the beach, catching fish and walking. The highlight of the week was seeing Russell Crowe on the film set for “Robin Hood”. The teapot pours well, the knives are sharp and the sculpture is awesome!! Many thanks.


The Bissell Family

Nice wind down from the hustle and bustle of work. Had some lovely walks – the Angle walk was just about the right distance for us. Nice meals out – Stackpole Inn; The Dial in Lamphey; and especially The King’s Arms in Pembroke. “Silk Purse” is the perfect place to get away from it all.


The Rimmington Family

Thank you for the welcoming items. We’re reluctant to leave the cows, swallows, bees etc. Delightful. And everything works well. We’ve just had three full days here. A bus trip to Freshwater West and the coast path back. One day to Bosherston Lily Ponds late afternoon and a meal at the Stackpole Inn – excellent. Then a bus trip to Hundleton and the long trek back – much better than expected but some parts hard and dry. The new lifeboat was named yesterday, so glorious singing resounded round the bay. Thank you for sharing “Silk Purse” with us.


The Glasper Family

How brilliant is this! Been coming to Angle for 50 years. I love this place – and here at “Silk Purse” it can’t be more perfect. Recommend: the Stackpole Inn for excellent food and service, the Harbour Inn at Solva too. Thanks for a fabulous holiday home; feel totally chilled. Don’t want to leave. The most perfect holiday – and the cows are a hoot! Hollywood moos!!


The Eldridge Family

Had a really super time, made especially enjoyable by the perfect holiday home. “Silk Purse” is truly a real home from home. We travelled around the coastline and our favourite beach was Marloes Sands. Misty, our cocker spaniel, particularly enjoyed it here! Thank you. We hope to be back next year.


The Sheppard Family

“Silk Purse” is such a lovely comfortable holiday home ……made of the finest silk!! We spent a glorious week walking the coastal path. Weather sunny and warm most of the week. Got to know some of the locals – lovely people and had a personal tour of the new lifeboat station. Hope to come back some day. Thank you.


The Dewfall Famliy

Super holiday, great location, excellent home. Thanks.


The Johns Family

Simply perfect. A stunning place in a wonderful location! We had a lovely time and hope to be back again soon. Thank you from all of us including Millie (the dog).


The Gilbert Family

We have loved our first visit to Pembrokeshire. ”Silk Purse” is a beautiful cottage in a lovely area. We have explored, walked, surfed and had an amazingly restful week. Thank you – we loved all the small touches and hope to be back.


The Warr Family

We have been visiting Pembrokeshire for well over 25 years. The best suggestion to anyone staying – just get out there and explore; you will find your own treasures! As for “Silk Purse”, it has been an absolute delight. We have so enjoyed staying in this lovely place. Wonderful attention to detail – thank you. We certainly hope to book this lovely cottage again.


The Fairmaner Family

“Silk Purse” is a gem of a cottage. It’s a real “home from home”. Angle is a super little place with a secluded bay, headland walks and village shop. Further afield we explored hills, Dale, coastal cliffs, beaches, sand dunes – and pub lunches. Pembrokeshire at its best.


The Darling Family

Amazing property with great attention to detail. We particularly like the brass sculptures/pictures. West Angle beach is great for rock-pooling and dam building. This is the first place we’ve stayed where the knives are actually sharp – and we’ve stayed in lots of properties. Tres bien!


The Luxton Family

“Diolch byth am y bwthyn bach moethus yng nghanol wythnos aeafol a haf!” Thank heaven for this luxurious little cottage amidst a cold week in summer! Everything in “Silk Purse” is perfect. Even the children noticed, and enjoyed, the little details and the use of wood, stone and slate. Wonderful. Thank you very much.

“Silk Purse” cottage has two dedicated parking spaces adjacent to the front entrance, with an even ramped access to the front door. External areas to the front entrance are finished with smooth paviours extending approximately 80 metres down a shallow inclined private courtyard to the main street.

On most occasions, where guests arrive between 3.00-3.30pm, the owner or a representative will be available at the cottage. No porterage is normally provided, but the owner can assist with luggage, and be available to meet guests at other times by arrangement.

There are changes in level within the property with 3 shallow steps between the kitchen/dining room and the lounge. Externally there are changes in level as follows:
a] One standard step at the back door;
b] Two/three steps to access the back garden from either the patio or the parking area;
c] Two steps to access the utility room from the patio.

A reasonably even lawned garden area has a continuous paved footpath along the rear boundary of the cottage.

“Silk Purse” is a single storey cottage; however, there is an interesting, but restrictive, change in level between the area comprising the twin bedroom, shower room and kitchen/dining room, and the remainder of the cottage which contains the lounge, double bedroom, with en-suite, and hallway onto the patio.

Doors and joinery are generally painted white, with most walls in either a cream colour or in natural stone.

External lighting, activated by a movement detector, is provided for the front main entrance. The rear door accessing the patio and utility has external lighting. There is no telephone fitted, and mobile phone signals can be limited in parts of Angle. Teletext is available on the TV by remote control.
