THE STABLES COTTAGE
Castle Pill Farm, Pembrokeshire
Tucked away at the end of a secluded country lane in the Castle Pill Valley, rural bliss, peaceful woodland trails, the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a tidal inlet of the Cleddau Estuary await you!
All of our contemporary open-plan cottages have been renovated to a high standard and are beautifully furnished to ensure your stay is a luxurious one. Each of the cottages provide family-sized living spaces with modern furnishings and a warm, cosy feel. They have well-equipped modern open-plan kitchens to ensure the keen cook has everything at hand to create their holiday feast, whilst also being able to partake in any holiday entertainment! Each of our four cottages are slightly different in size, features and furnishings, so you’ve plenty of choice when booking with us.
We can also accommodate large group bookings (between multiple properties). Contact us for more information and rates.
This stunning two bedroom cottage is situated in the old farm courtyard, in a quaint barn built pre-1850, which now offers a contemporary and tastefully furnished space whilst retaining its character as one of the oldest barns on the farm.
The modern open-plan kitchen is well-equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave, hob, oven, dishwasher and washer/drier. The living space has two large, comfortable sofas, a generous television and a farmhouse dining table for serving family meals.
The two bedrooms have comfortable beds (a King in the master bedroom and a double and a single in the second bedroom) and so can accommodate up to five people (with three sharing the larger room).
A family bathroom offers a bath tub, with a powerful shower over and plenty of hot water. Whilst the master bedroom benefits from a generous ensuite shower room.
The garden of the property is screened by a timber fence and surrounding newly planted laurel hedging to provide privacy, whilst a continuous garden fence ensures children can play in the garden safely, away from the parking and country lane. The private garden is equipped with outdoor dining area and BBQ. Whilst attractive landscaped communal lawns offer secluded areas for enjoying the countryside and local wildlife. Parking is at the rear of the property (with sufficient parking for two cars).
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is just a few hundred yards from the property and leads to further trails that wind their way through ancient oak woodland and to the Castle Pill Inlet of the Cleddau Estuary. Woodpeckers, kingfishers and herons are all common sightings, and crabbing opportunities provide hours of fun for little ‘uns. The woods are also home to a community project which has constructed two roundhouses with a free access woodland campfire area adjacent a freshwater stream perfect for paddling and dam building!
From the water’s edge, keen walkers can either follow the meandering coast at low tide, along the old railway line path all the way to Milford Marina and all that it offers. Or you can head along the Coast Path to the quaint village of Hazelbeach taking in views of the impressive energy infrastructure of Milford Haven. Here a riverside pub, The Ferry Inn, serves hearty pub food on its waterfront terrace and welcomes dogs with open arms.
The cottage is situated at the heart of our family’s working eco-farm although unfortunately unrestricted access to fields and farm is not permitted for safety and insurance reasons. We do invite you to sample our home-grown greens, free range woodland pork, eggs or the sustainably reared fish from our aquaponics tunnel, season permitting - just let us know what you would like; price lists are available in your cottage.
We aim to always be contactable during your stay, should you need us, but are not always around to welcome you in person, so we provide detailed instructions and a key box so you can let yourselves in.

The King bed will be made up if the booking is made for 2 persons, the King bed and the
