Violet Cottage

Violet Cottage is a delightful cottage, one of two sharing an enviable location, overlooking acres of lush, green countryside just outside the picturesque medieval town of Pembroke with its majestic Castle. This quaint cottage is comfortably furnished, the fitted kitchen/diner leads down via one step to the pretty lounge with open fire for those chillier evenings and a cosy double bedroom both of which offer lovely views over the green fields. The sitting room has sliding doors opening to an enclosed, decked balcony perfect for alfresco dining or a chilled glass of wine on a summer’s evening while you soak up the delightful rural aspect. Steps lead down to the large, enclosed shared lawn giving plenty of space for children to play and dogs to run.

There are a wide choice of stunning beaches to visit nearby including Freshwater East, Freshwater West, popular with surfers and the location for the Robin Hood and Harry Potter movies. West Angle Bay and Barafundle are also well worth a visit too.

Bosherston
The Bosherston Lakes are a man-made lake system, only a little over 200 years old. They occupy three narrow valleys which were carved into the limestone during the last Ice Age. The lakes are famous for their water lilies, leading to their other name of the Bosherston Lily Ponds. The lilies are best seen in the month of June. A footpath winds its way around the banks to the lovely beach of Broad Haven.
Once a retreat for medieval bishop's seeking a tranquil surrounding away from the Church, Lamphey Bishop's Palace has been extremely well preserved despite dating back centuries. The Western Hall, Inner Gatehouse and the 82 foot long Great Hall are still an impressive sight to see. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.

Upton Castle is a charming Norman Castle which remains a private family home. The garden consists of 35 acres of listed historic gardens, surrounded by ancient woodlands. Within the gardens there is a rose garden,vegetables patch and fruit trees. The woodland walk is bursting with wild flowers and sometimes you can even spot the odd otter! Upton is a small castle, a knight's holding and a fortified mansion. It is thought to have been built in the 13th century by the Malefants, a Norman family who held it until the 16th century.
Carew Cheriton control tower museum, restored to original state as part of a community project. A lasting memorial to all who served on the airfield through two world wars. The airmen who main the supreme sacrifice during those years. A structure for educational use focused on school and group visits who are studying this period of modern day history. A tourist attraction offering a wartime experience.

Built in timber around 1100 by Gerald of Windsor, this now-ruined stone castle is a very popular historic attraction.

Beaches near Violet Cottage

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. 
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.

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. 

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.
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.
Lydstep Haven is a picturesque village with a sand and shingle beach, located just over 3 miles from Tenby on the Pembrokeshire coast. It is very popular with swimmers and water sports enthusiasts and there is a great view of Caldey Island from the beach.
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.
Penally
Penally beach is a large sandy beach, at the far end of Tenby's South Beach. The beach gives direct access to Coastal Path, taking you up to Giltar Point where the path continues towards Lydstep and beyond. Access to the beach is via a pathway from the car park near the train station, through the golf course and dunes. There are fantastic views of Caldey Island from Penally.
