This sweet semi-detached cottage sits on a picturesque bridle way, on the idyllic river bank at Cresswell Quay. With exposed beams and the water babbling past your window this is ideal to relax and unwind yet only a short distance from the seaside resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot.

Cresswell Quay is a pretty tidal hamlet, with a local quayside inn that is the focal point for boats and is just around the corner. The Pembrokeshire coastal path runs just at the end of the driveway, making this a popular spot for walkers and nature lovers. For the more energetic guests, kayaks can be launched from the grounds. Historic Carew castle is just 2 miles. Many attractions for the younger at heart are within 5 miles including Heatherton Country Park, Manor House Zoo, Folly Farm and Wales’ largest theme park, Oakwood. Tenby and Saundersfoot are 7 miles away.

The accommodation offers TWO bedrooms: on the first floor, 1 twin. On the ground floor, 1 double. Bathroom: with shower over bath and WC, on the ground floor. Lounge: with woodburner, TV and DVD. Kitchen/diner: with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Outside: rear patio with table and chairs and shared river bank. Amenities: ample parking. Bed linen, towels, electric and central heating included. Regret no smoking. 1 dog welcome. Location: beach 7 miles, shop 5 miles and pub within walking distance.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

this is a great cottage in a great location. comfy enough for 2 adults, but would be a bit more pokey if 2 more adults stayed too. ideal for exploring the area. pub is great, but no food, and nowhere within easy reach for eating out, which didnt bother us much. the only things that lets this cottage down are 1. the awful mattresses - think twice beRead morefore booking if you have a bad back. seriously the worst bed we've EVER slept in and 2. nowhere for recycling Hide

A great place from which to explore the countryside and waterways of Pembrokeshire. It had everything we needed for a fun week and we really enjoyed our stay. Perfect if you are bringing a dog as there is easy access to walks, water and the cottage is perfectly setup for it.

Thank you for the welcome box of biscuits and bottle of wine. A nice, comfortable cottage. No wifi nor mobile signal but not a problem for us once we got used to it! The kitchen was well equipped.

The cottage was in a very quiet spot so good for relaxing. Found the bed a bit uncomfortable so didn't sleep well.

We had a fantastic time Brilliant little house & lovely river to kayak on Shame the signets hadn't hatched before we left but lovely to see nature at its best

A beautiful location especially for birdwatchers. We saw kingfishers, gold finch, bull finch, a pair of nesting swans and a mother duck with eight tiny ducklings. There was a bottle of wine and welsh cakes to greet us on arrival. Everyone was very friendly

Good value cottage in a fab location for visiting Pembrokeshire. Dog friendly with plenty of places to walk right on doorstep. Worth noting that the pub within walking distance doesnt do food or accept card payments!

Lovely quaint mill cottage located right next to a river in remote quiet area of Pembrokeshire near Carew Castle. It was perfect to switch off from a busy world over Xmas.

Lovely cottage in a fabulous spot. No wifi and very poor mobile phone signal makes it perfect for a get-away-from-it-all holiday.

Reviewed by Daniel, 11th August 2017

The property itself was pretty and set in a beautiful location, the owners didn't introduce themselves in person (which would have been nice for some local knowledge) but did leave a welcome card and bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. Unfortunately the cleanliness of the place wasn't great, plenty of aged cobwebs, dirt behind all furniture anRead mored mould in the bathroom and master bedroom... Hide

A nice cottage in a fantastic location. So much to see & do in the area & lots of fabulous beaches. We had a lovely family staying in Watermill House next door with a child same age as ours so that was perfect!. Be aware there is no washing machine or line so pack accordingly!. Owners are 2 doors away if needed & left a note with Tea/Coffee/BiscuitRead mores/wine for our arrival. We had a great holiday! Hide
