Westhills is a charming single storey cottage, overlooking the Pembrokeshire sea and countryside, set in its own enclosed, lawned gardens on a private lane a short walk to the National Trust Lydstep headland and down the hill to the pretty sheltered sandy Lydstep Bay (beach), only approx 3.5 miles from Tenby. A favourite with walkers and those wishing for their own space.
An ideal coastal cottage for a large family group or a romantic couple looking for a picturesque coastal retreat with sea views from south facing rooms and real open fire. On a clear day you can look out to sea and spot Lundy Island in the distance. The cottage has a homely feel, with rear patio area off the kitchen & porchway for sunny mornings and evenings. There is lawned garden to the front and rear of the cottage (rear garden is up approx 5 steps). From the entrance hall the sitting room with open fire has a bay style window sea area with sea views and another window looking west. Original parque flooring remains in the sitting room, hallway and dining room. The separate dining room leads to the kitchen with pantry cupboard. A shower room leads off the kitchen and the porchway also leads off the kitchen with a back door onto the patio terrace - a veritable sheltered sun trap. The master bedroom is off the dining room and has it's own ensuite bathroom. The other two bedrooms are off the hallway (after the sitting room) and share the west wing of the cottage with an additional wc and bath/shower room.
Relaxing in front of the real open fire is the perfect way to end a day of exploring Pembrokeshire's Coastal National Park or only a few minutes walk up the lane you can have a drink or eat in the local pub Lydstep Tavern (seasonal opening) or Waves Restaurant, where you can dine overlooking the bay or treat yourself to a pamper session in the spa. Tenby and Manorbier with their sandy beaches and welcoming pubs are only a short drive away.A short walk down the bumpy lane takes you to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, the best way to really appreciate this stunning coastline, take in Lydstep Point owned by the National Trust. Explore at low tide the Lydstep Caverns or visit the beautiful private sandy Lydstep Haven beach. For keen golfers, you can walk up and enjoy a round of 9 hole golf at Celtic Haven or there are a further 2 18 hole courses to try within a short drive - Tenby Links Golf Club or Trefloyne Golf Club.There is a great range of family attractions nearby including Heatherton World of Activities, Manor House Wildlife Park and Folly Farm, all within a short drive of about 3-4 miles. The bustling medieval walled town of Tenby with its pretty cobbled streets and picturesque harbour is only 3ish miles away, sample its range of restaurants, pubs and shops, as well as its 4 glorious sandy beaches. A boat trip to Caldey Island and its Cistercian monks is a must of any holiday.

What a perfect place to celebrate Christmas! We loved staying here, the children were out first thing enjoying the garden, which was also perfect in the evening when the west winds blew. We also enjoyed long, misty walks around the headland. Such a perfect location for a getaway. The cottage is so well equipped with such lovely, well proportioned rooms with tonnes of space. It made for a very merry Christmas, so thank you so much! 21st - 28th December 2019

Cottage lovely, wather not too good, but accommodation so well equipped & comfy it compensated. Thank you for the gesture and a REAL CHRISTMAS TREE!
this cottage has excellent standards - we nicknamed it 'The Tardis' we couldnt believe the size of it from the front view. We have had a wonderful week. Thank you we very much appreciated how well equipped it is (I think I will be taking a trip to IKEA very soon)!
Loved the swing. Went on it every day. Beds were comfy and had a goodnight sleep. Thank you! Sam aged 7
Had a very relaxing time this week. Cottage & garden superb. Couldnt have asked for anything else. Sam loved the swing and had a good time playing football inthe garden. It was our first visit to Wale and we will definately come back again.
Felt really at home here straight away - very comfortable and a nice calm atmosphere. Love this area but didnt know about Lydstep Headland - beautiful!
Brill garden for the kids-lots of places to hide and play hide and seek! Cottage very child friendly and safe also. Appreciated attention to detail - Loved everything.
Your beautiful cottage has the wow factor! Fab location, clean, comfy, tastefully decorated with all mod cons. We loved the unusual garden, huge tree and swing. One week is not long enough to see all the beaches in the area. We will be back!
Many Thanks for such a warm welcome, bottle of wine greatly appreciated. The house was everything and more than we could have asked for - all credit to you.
Weve had a fantastic family holiday. Weather ordered to perfection by end of the week. Will always have fond memories of our daughter enjoying the sea + sand for the first time + taking her first real steps around the cottage.
We had a lovely last week of summer, weather glorious. Fresh Water West at its best, loved Westhills, a beautiful spot so nice to see the sea. Loved the swing, the dogs loved the garden, we loved the house. We have family in Saundersfoot so this was an ideal base for them to join us. The swing and badminton set - brilliant.
Had a wonderful relaxing time at Westhills 1st class holiday home, suitable for us all especially the dogs, Hia and Mirch. A beautiful un-spoilt area to be visited again next year. Thank you !
An exceptional holiday cottage, and we've had lots over the years. A Gorgeous and unspoilt part of the UK, well worth exploring. Our two rated Fresh Water West as the beach for surf, sand, rockpools, and great kite flying
Splendid in all ways. Hope your guests lavish the same care and attention on the house as their hosts have done.
