Waters Edge Retreat on the Mill Pond in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire. West Wales, UK

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales
Live your dream and wake up beside the Medieval Pembroke Mill pond where you can enjoy wild water life from the comfort of the conservatory. All photos of wild life above are taken from the garden. Swans, herons, coots, cormorants, moorhens etc. can be seen all year round. Three otters have been seen playing last summer in 2017. This is a unique mid terrace house due to its water edge location.

If you have a pet who is very will behaved, then message me first to chat? There may be a chance of having a small pet to stay.
I am a semi retired nurse who enjoys wild li...

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.

Beautiful spot on Mill Pond in Pembroke, right near the castle. Really enjoyed a sunny BH weekend. Location is great for all parts of Pembrokeshire, short hops to Bosherston, Freshwater West, Dale, Tenby. Owner friendly and very helpful. Recommended.

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.
