Two steps lead down to the decked patio, where the outdoor heated pool (available April - September) is guaranteed to provide hours of fun. Below lies a lawned walled garden. The majestic bedrooms are sure to delight, three of which have their own impressive ensuite with large roll-top baths, perfect for a relaxing soak after a busy day exploring. In the attic nestles amongst the A-frame beams an additional suite with open-plan living space, a kingsize double bed leading to a further twin bedroom.

Enjoy exploring the delights of Laugharne with its imposing Medieval Castle and mixture of fine houses and quaint cottages all set on the banks of the estuary of the river Taf.

Car Parking is currently free, but there are talks of implementing parking charges. Dogs are welcome onto the beach during the winter months providing they are kept on leads, however restrictions are then put in place from 1st May to the 30th September forbidding dogs on this beach. Technically, this is a tidal estuary rather than a beach, and so it is recommended to supervise children bathing at all times due to the strong currents in the water.
Amroth
Amroth is a charming coastal village where time seems to have stood still. The beach is punctuated by a series of groynes that help protect the village from winter storms and rough seas. This beach and village mark the easterly end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which winds its way for 186 miles past all the coves, beaches and cliffs of the Pembrokeshire National Park. Parking is good in the village and along the seafront.
Tenby North Beach consists of a sweep of golden sand, with occasional rocks dotting the beach, including the prominent Goscar Rock. The harbour and castle are at the southern end of the beach which is well sheltered from the prevailing winds. North beach is very popular with families with plenty of space for beach games. Dog restrictions are put in place between 1st May and 30th September, banning dogs from North Beach. 
The mile long stretch of flat, golden sand that is Tenby South Beach is a firm favourite with holidaymakers. Plenty of space for a game of beach cricket or football as well as chasing a Frisbee! The beach is also popular with water sports enthusiasts as it is more exposed than Tenby North beach, it offers better surfing, windsurfing and kite-surfing conditions. Dog restrictions apply below the cliffs, east of the beach car park, between the 1st May and 30th September.

Skrinkle Haven is accessed via its neighbour, Church Doors which is a little cove with two high-arched caves in the cliffs which resemble the doors of a church. The two coves are separated by a tall thin limestone ridge. At low tide it is possible to walk around the ridge, but only for a short period of time. There is also a narrow cave linking the two coves - care is needed as the cave is slippery and one end is in a rock pool. Access to Church Doors is via 140 metal steps.
Manorbier
One of the prettiest beaches in Pembrokeshire, overlooked by the impressive medieval Manorbier Castle and the 12th century church. The beach itself is sandy, with rocks and rockpools at either end and a pebble bank along the high tide mark, and is very popular with surfers. It is home to a stone cromlech known as the King's Quoit. To find it, follow the signs from the A4139 onto the B4585. Parking is available in a National Trust Car Park above the beach and along the low cliff at the northern end of the beach. Toilets can be found in the large car park and shops and a pub in the village.
Freshwater East
Swanlake Bay is shingle beach, accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path situated between Manorbier and Freshwater East.
