Attractions near The Retreat

The Western Hall, Inner Gatehouse and the 82 foot long Great Hall are still an impressive sight to see. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.

Built in timber around 1100 by Gerald of Windsor, this now-ruined stone castle is a very popular historic attraction.

Bosherston

The Bosherston Lakes are a man-made lake system, only a little over 200 years old. They occupy three narrow valleys which were carved into the limestone during the last Ice Age.

A footpath winds its way around the banks to the lovely beach of Broad Haven.

Please Note: Dogs are welcomed but must be kept on leads throughout the walk, but Broadhaven South is dog friendly all year round.

Beaches near The Retreat

Freshwater East
Freshwater East is a wide bay of golden sand and blue water backed by dunes and grassy headlands, there is a freshwater stream running through the beach to the sea at the Southern end. Popular with boat owners, divers, fishermen and surfers alike, it has a shop, pub, caravan park and toilets - all set behind the dunes. .
Freshwater East
Swanlake Bay is shingle beach, accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path situated between Manorbier and Freshwater East. At low tide the golden sand and rock pools are revealed making Swanlake Bay beach worth the trip - it has been one of Pembrokeshire best kept secrets as even during the Summer months you can still find most of the beach to yourself.
Stackpole Quay beach is a stony beach which is only revealed at low tide. Stackpole Quay is a small harbour set in the cliffs between Barafundle and Freshwater East, it is a favourite spot for kayakers as there are plenty of caves to explore. There are no dog restrictions. 
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.
Aberbach Bay
A beautiful bay of golden sands and turquoise blue waters. East facing and well sheltered from the prevailing winds, this is an ideal hideaway spot. There are toilets and a cafe at the car park, however the beach is a 1 km walk along the Coast Path from the car park. There is a steep descent from the path down to the beach.
Bosherston
This beautiful beach is backed by sand dunes which are an important habitat for wildlife. Offshore is a dramatically-shaped limestone stack known as Church Rock. The stream running down to the beach drains from the Bosherston lakes, part of the Stackpole Estate. In the 18th century the estate was owned by the Campbell family, Earls of Cawdor, who created the lakes by damming three limestone valleys. In 1977 the National Trust took over 810 hectares (2,000 acres) of the estate. The lakes cover 32 hectares (80 acres) and support a rich variety of wildlife including otters, water-fowl, dragonflies and water lilies. They now form part of a National Nature Reserve managed jointly by the National Trust and the Countryside Council for Wales.
Skrinkle Haven beach is a sandy/shingly cove between Old Castle Head and Lydstep Point, 1 mile south-east of Manorbier village. 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.
Lydstep Haven is a picturesque village with a sand and shingle beach, located just over 3 miles from Tenby on the Pembrokeshire coast. It is very popular with swimmers and water sports enthusiasts and there is a great view of Caldey Island from the beach.
Penally
Penally beach is a large sandy beach, at the far end of Tenby's South Beach. The beach gives direct access to Coastal Path, taking you up to Giltar Point where the path continues towards Lydstep and beyond. Access to the beach is via a pathway from the car park near the train station, through the golf course and dunes. There are fantastic views of Caldey Island from Penally.
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.

The Francome Party

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.


The Jones Family

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.


The Southam Party

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.


The Ratcliffe Family

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.


The Gilbert/Evans Family

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.


Scott and friends

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.


The Maisuria Family

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.


The Goodman Family

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.


The Cowley Party

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.


The Rogers Family

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!
