The Old School House is a deceptively spacious, detached cottage, set in the heart of the coastal village of Bosherston.
Originally built as part of the Cawdor Estate for the village school teacher, The Old School House is comfortably furnished along traditional lines with old beams and exposed stone work. The spacious lounge with wood burning stove is ideal for cosy nights in on chillier evenings and has sliding doors opening to a patio, a real sun trap where you can enjoy alfresco meals. There is an extensive lawned, enclosed secluded garden, beautifully planted with cottage garden flowers and mature fruit trees providing plenty of space for children to play or quiet hidden nooks to sit and just relax over a glass of wine. The formal dining room also has a wood burning stove and is perfect for family meals prepared in the pretty country style kitchen with its family breakfast table and window seat.
Stairs lead up to the spacious bedrooms nestling in the eaves, the double offers super views over the garden, while the twin bedrooms with their window seats give the perfect spot to just sit and watch village life and admire the sun setting over the fields.
Perfectly positioned to explore this beautiful area, just a short stroll to the local village pub serving good food, or treat yourself to a traditional afternoon tea at Ye Olde Worlde Tea Rooms. With the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coastal Path on your doorstep, walk round the wonderful Lily Ponds, with their resident otters, to the picturesque sandy beach of Broadhaven South, one of Pembrokeshire’s finest beaches just 10 minutes away. There are a wealth of other beautiful beaches nearby all waiting to be explored including Barafundle Bay, regularly voted one of Britain’s best beaches, West Angle Bay and the excellent surf beach, Freshwater West, which was the setting for the Harry Potter and Robin Hood films. The cliff top walks are simply stunning, visit the magical St Govan’s, a 13th century chapel nestling in the dramatic limestone cliffs or the majestic Green Bridge of Wales.
The Old School House is a wonderfully welcoming holiday cottage for family and friends to enjoy.
In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Bosherston is located close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The border of the range is approx 800m away. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8 km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan's Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.

The walk to Broad haven an interesting town and very convenient. We enjoyed late afternoons in your lovely garden and couldn't resist a cream tea in the Cafe next door. A lovely week enjoyed by all.
We've had a great week staying at the School House, loved the proximity to the Lily Ponds where we took the 2 pugs for long walks every evening. So good to be able to walk to Broadhaven South beach and enjoy the tranquility of the Lily Ponds on the way there and back. The School House was immaculate and the garden delightful. Hope to return again in the not to distant future. 14th May 2016

Thank you. 21st May 2017
We have just returned home after a delightful week at the School House in Bosherston. The weather could have been a bit kinder but everything about the house was absolutely excellent and we had a wonderful stay. The house was spacious, comfortable and very clean and offered us everything we could have wanted. The photographs on your website were absolutely accurate and really showed the house as it is. In that sense, it really exceeded our expectations (because you never know from website photographs)! The location was excellent and the walk down to the beach every day made Suzy our dog extremely happy.Thank you for a wonderful time and we are intending to book again next year for a week just after Whitsun. With best regards,
