This is my guide to Carew Cottage and the local area where I was brought up.
This is a special cottage, which makes an ideal base for a week's holiday in the summer or a short break in the winter. It's a victorian terraced cottage, located in the heart of the seaside village of Manorbier, five miles west of Tenby in South Pembrokeshire, Wales.
There are four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. The pretty garden has a door onto a back lane and storage facilities at the bottom of the garden for surf boards, wetsuits, etc. It was fully refurbished in 2008 to a very high standard and provides a comfortable living space.
Within a few minutes you can reach a cafe, a shop, a hotel, a pub, the castle and the beach. The area has a mass of beaches, including Manorbier, which is a 2-3 minute walk - these vary from large, wide and open with easy access, to steep cliff walls, small and interesting, and all are sandy.
There are many places to visit from castles, islands and interesting old houses to magnificent cliff walks, stacks covered in sea birds, cliff chapels, and of course the beautiful St David’s Cathedral and the Preselli Mountains, from where the stones for Stonehenge were taken (somehow!). Details of all this are in the cottage and there’s an ordnance survey map on the wall in the hall. Carew Cottage is a beautiful holiday home, and very well equipped. You can even bring up to two dogs.
