The Retreat is a quality, detached house, set in the village of Lamphey, just over 1.5 miles away from the beautiful sandy beach at Freshwater East.
Deceptively spacious, it has been furnished to a high standard throughout in a contemporary style and bright bold tones. The large, dual aspect lounge with comfy sofas and a wood burning stove for those chillier evenings has French doors opening to a paved terrace, an ideal spot to enjoy a barbecue on a summer’s day and the rear enclosed lawn gives plenty of space for children to play.
The spacious modern kitchen/diner is perfect for leisurely family meals and also opens to the garden. The master bedroom on the ground floor provides a spot of luxury while the stairs lead to 2 further spacious bedrooms in the eaves. Conveniently situated, there is a choice of pubs and restaurants as well as an excellent bakery and village shop all within walking distance in this thriving village, while a short drive takes you to the popular sandy beach at Freshwater East.
There are a wealth of other beautiful sandy beaches to explore all nearby including Barafundle and Broadhaven South, a walk round the Lily Ponds from Bosherston to reach it should not be missed as well as refreshments at the Olde Worlde Tea Rooms. Join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and explore over the headland to Stackpole with its recommended pub, The Stackpole Inn, where you can a enjoy a meal. There are a range of facilities in the historic town of Pembroke and a visit to the medieval Castle and a walk round the mill pond will be a highlight while to the east are a number of popular seaside villages all with glorious sandy beaches including Manorbier, Lydstep and Tenby.
A truly delightful holiday home whatever the season.

This was a birthday treat for my Dads 84th. It was so lovely to get together and celebrate, The house was beautifully decorated and well equipped, thank you so much for a really lovely weekend
One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in, most holiday homes of this standard so not cater for dogs, So it was a great bonus that we could bring our dog with us as she loves running on Freshwater beach, We had a great walk. the weather was good and the house wonderful
A great house for a lovely stay. Came for Ironman and was a perfect location to watch the bike route and then head in Tenby, Thank you for the Prosecco, it was drunk celebrating the Iron man finish,
A most enjoyable stay at your lovely well equipped cottage, Very comfortable a cosy home from home very well situated Thank you
A very happy weeks family holiday, despite some showers which fell mainly at night, there has been super sunshine too, We will remember the spacious kitchen with constant hot water and the welcoming bathroom. Bus route and bakery, papers, petrol and pub, this house is as favoured outside as it is inside. Last but not least it is easy to lift bags and cases from the doorstep to the car. Going home is like leaving friends.

Great to sit in the garden with last of the sun with drinks and nibbles too. Visited the hotel and pub for great meals and of course the bakery. A great Holiday back in Pembrokeshire after 25 years
Great week , many thanks the Retreat is perfect, we couldnt have wanted more! We will be back!
We have enjoyed visiting old haunts and welcoming friends and family to our comfortable and very pleasant "holiday home". Thank you for all the thought and care you have taken with the Retreat, It has made a very happy fortnight for the "returning natives"
Thank you for the lovely holiday at the fabulous relaxing "Retreat", Truely a home from home, We had a great time exploring the area and relaxing on the beaches with the kids see you again soon
The kitchen was well laid out and all crockery supplied, The situation of the bungalow suited our purpose.
What a good decision to spend two weeks in your "Retreat", Your home supplied everything we needed to relax and the coastal path walking in this area takes a lot of beating, Alice (1yr old border terrier) loved the beaches and the ducks in your neighbours garden mesmerised her! With all that and spectacular weather we couldn't have asked for more, thank you
We have had a lovely week, The Retreat has been a fantastic base for a great stay. good weather and gorgeous scenery. Folly farm excellent for our children.
Lovely week, fantastic weather, recommended "Wavecrest" of West Angle Bay on sunny day P.S. and Skrinkle Haven for a challenge
Great place, fantastic location with easy reach of all the wonderful beaches, Thank you for an amazing week
After a hectic five days at Bluestone, this was a wonderful relaxing place to be, A real home from home, So comfortable and everything we could have wanted. Thank you, We would love to return.
The Retreat has been a very comfortable base from which we could discover and enjoy your beautiful Stackpole coastline,
A great week at The Retreat! The house has everything (and more) to provide a first class holiday. We have been blessed with beautiful weather and therefore The Retreat has been a superb hub to explore Tenby, Pembroke, Carew Castle and more! Had farewell dinner at Lamphey Hall, great food at a reasonable price. Sunday lunch at The Waterman's , Pembroke - sitting outside in view of the Castle and the Mill Pond was lovely. Our lasting memory will be the friendliness of all we came in contact with. You made our holiday extra special with the high quality beds, linen and towels! We will return one day!
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It was wonderful to walk into such a spotlessly clean house. The kitchen was so well equipped with all the utensils, pots and pans we could possibly need, it was a real home from home. We didn't really come prepared for such lovely weather, so it was brilliant to find chairs, umbrella and windbreak in the garage ready for our use. The Retreat was the nicest holiday home we've stayed in. We will certainly recommend to friends.
Thanks to The Retreat for a lovely stay - we were lucky with the weather and had loads of lovely days out. We would love to come back here one day.
A comfortable, warm and well equipped house and a good base from which to explore the stunning countryside and surrounding area. Last supper at the Lamphey Hall Hotel where we experienced a lovely warm welcome followed by a delicious meal.
We have been very fortunate to have had a lovely week of weather here. The Retreat has been a 'home from home' and we've all enjoyed a quality family break away. Highlights have been - Barafundle Bay, Williams Cafe/Restaurant in Pembroke (great food and friendly service), a pre-dinner drink at Lamphey Court Hotel and delicious freshly baked offerings from Lamphey Bakery - delish! Thank you, we hope to be back.
Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage 'The Retreat' with us. We have had an amazing week, lovely weather so being able to get out and about and enjoy this beautiful area and have had lovely family filled evenings in the comfort of The Retreat.
The Retreat has been perfect. We made this weekend our own couples retreat with couples/friends staying together. This house couldn't have complemented more. Such a warm, cosy and welcoming home. Every inch of the house is absolute perfection. We have enjoyed every minute, thank you for a lovely stay. Your home is a house we all aspire to having when we are older.
We have had such a wonderful time here at The Retreat, the few days here have really been relaxing, especially as we have been based at a beautiful, well decorated house. You have made it extra special as you have thought of practically everything! We would never get the personal touch elsewhere - the binoculars, the slippers, books, games, well equipped kitchen and utility - where else would we have a tagine as part of the cooking utensils. We have had a great time and would like to visit again. Thank you.
What a wonderful house. We have had a fantastic Christmas in The Retreat. The house is beautiful and filled with everything one could possibly need. I can't thank the owners enough, especially for the Christmas Tree and Decorations. Definitely coming back, thank you very much.
Have had a lovely long weekend, weather held out! The Retreat is very tastefully decorated, you have thought of everything! Would love to stay again.
Thank you for sharing your retreat, we've had a wonderful week. The weather was kind and we've all enjoyed the beaches and coastal walks. Narberth is a 'must', although we now need to go home and save for our next visit!
