Interaction with guests
We live next door but one so do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems while staying at our house.
Your safety is important and the steep edge to the Pond is very abrupt. Children can only be accepted if they are babies or are old enough to understand the danger of going too close. The fantastic part of the location is the closeness to the water, so of course this can also be a mixed blessing. Contact me for any specific requirements you may need to make your stay comfortable and I will see if I can provide them for you.

Don't hesitate to stay at this accommodation. The host Sue could not do enough for us. The house was spotless, there were items left to make a great breakfast and the best part was the view over the mill pond, full of wild life.
The furniture was comfortable and the bed was so comfy we didn't want to get up in the morning.
The walk in to Pembroke takes you around the mill pond which takes about 20 mins but can be a bit longer because we kept on stopping to look at the swans and their signets, beautiful.
Centrally situated to visit most popular places and though a small town has varied eateries. We had a lovely stay and will be going back next year. Happy memories.

Management response:

We loved having your beautiful family stay with us. Thank you so much for the great review and hope you found those fairies on your way home. See you next year. Sue.

The cottage on Heron's Reach sits on the beautiful Pembroke millpond, with views across the water to the old walled town. We sat for hours in the conservatory, watching the wildlife of the pond, lots of baby waterfowl when we were there. The town of Pembroke is small but has everything: we explored the castle, discovered great nature walks and ate out well. And Pembroke is incredibly convenient for the hidden beaches of Pembrokeshire like Barafundle and Broad Haven South. The cottage itself is very comfortable, and the hosts generous and welcoming - they even provided bacon and eggs!

About the neighbourhood
We are quite private where the house stands but we have shops within walking distance and antique emporium in town.
Most visitors visit the local pubs and Pembroke Castle where Henry VII was born.
The Coastal Path is very popular among walkers and seals and dolphins have been spotted.
St Davids can be very interesting for a day out. The Visitor Centre and Cathedral are well worth a visit. Art galleries, outdoor adventure activities, surf school, sea kayaking and many gardens and castles are very close to this location.
We live close to the Irish Ferry where you can hop on and visit if you like.
Carew Market is held every Sunday and only 8 Kms away.
We enjoy visiting Wavecrest Cafe at West Angle Bay and the Coast restaurant at Coppet Hall.
Getting around
The Coastal Cruiser, Strumble Shuttle, Poppit Rocket and Puffin Shuttle links places along the coast with a reduced time-table during winter from October until April. There is a bus service on Main Street and the National Express can be caught outside the Co-op. The railway station is approximately 5 minutes walk away.
The free Coast to Coast newspaper has all the timetables and activities published.
