The village of Bosherston has a local pub and Ye Old Worlde Tea Rooms where you can enjoy a fine tea, a walk around the Lily Ponds starts here too and should not be missed, taking you on to the wonderful Broadhaven South beach. A mile down quiet country lanes takes you to a permissive pathway across the range and on to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, this section of coastline is simply stunning, take in St Govans Chapel, a medieval church built into the cliff face and further on the famous Green Bridge of Wales. The nearest pub, the Stackpole Inn is only 2 miles away and is renowned for serving good food. There are plenty of beautiful beaches to discover including Freshwater West, Barafundle Bay and West Angle Bay some of the finest in South Pembrokeshire, while for keen historians Pembroke Castle is well worth a visit and only a short drive away.

A delightful holiday home which is sure to become a firm favourite whatever the season.

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.

A footpath winds its way around the banks to the lovely beach of Broad Haven.
A dramatic geological feature, The Green Bridge of Wales is an arch naturally created in the rock as it wore away by the ebbing and flowing of the tide. Currently standing as an arch, it is expected that the top of the arch will eventually wear away leaving a stack of rocks in place. The Green Bridge of Wales can only be accessed through the Castlemartin Firing Range, so please call the Visitor Centre if travelling specially to check if the range is open. If you are making the trip, the chapel in the cliff, St Govans is nearby and is also well recommended.

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. 

Stackpole
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 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. .
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 East
Swanlake Bay is shingle beach, accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path situated between Manorbier and Freshwater East.

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.
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.

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.

 

Customer Reviews of Valast Hill Bungalow

The Jones Family

We have had a wonderful week. Love the cottage, it is one of the best-equipped holiday homes we've stayed at (especially the kitchen, which is great). Visited lots of the local beaches. Particularly Barafundle Bay and Broad Haven South - both beautiful . Also loved the Coastal Path walk from the Green Bridge of Wales to St Govans Chapel. The coastline here is stunning. The wine and other goodies on arrival were appreciated, thank you very much.

The bungalow is approached from a B road, then approximately 1.25 miles of narrow country lanes.

Accessed by an open gateway onto an L shaped driveway with ample parking (up to 3 cars). One space directly outside on level tarmac.

Main entrance. There is a small, 1 inch lip, change in height between the tarmac and a level concrete path which runs around 3 sides of the bungalow, then there is a small 2 inch step onto a small open porch area, then a 9 inch step into the property.

Alternative entrance at the rear through French windows there are 2 9inch steps up, then a 3 inch lip over the bottom of the double glazed unit, onto a wooden step just inside and a 3 inch step down onto the tiled kitchen floor.
There are 2 9 inch steps going up from the kitchen to the lounge, or vice versa.

Ground floor facilities including 2 bedrooms, study/TV room, bathroom with separate corner shower, wash basin and WC, kitchen/dining room, utility room and well-lit lounge including a wood burner with a large slate slab underneath giving a rise of about 1.5 inches from the tiled floor.
Kitchen has ample work tops/breakfast bar and low level oven.

TV with freesat operated by remote.

Garden extends to roughly two thirds of an acre with approximately 30/70 front to back ratio, and continues along the side of the property. To the rear there is a concrete patio area which runs the length of the property, bounded by a small wall approximately 2 foot tall with a gap for access to the lawned area which makes up approximately a quarter of the available land, the rest being left as an orchard. There is a simple fence to separate the two areas. The lawned area slopes down from left to right moderately with a steeper gradient near to the boundary hedge on the right. The orchard area slopes moderately throughout.

The front garden is reasonably level and mainly lawned with some young planted trees within the lawn and surrounded by mature garden on all 3 sides. Near the front garage area there is a change of surface from tarmac to concrete to slate chippings involving a small change of height of about 2 inches. There are potted plants dotted around this area.

On the side of the property there is a small square lawned area with mature borders. A concrete path runs alongside the property, but is significantly narrowed in places due to wild flowers, an old doorstep and the rear wall extending slightly alongside the side of the property, so at times it may be necessary to step onto the lawned area.

Public transport, bus service - not often. There is an approximate mile and a half walk up 2 steep hills and a narrow country lane.
