LISTED COTTAGE, FOR WATERSIDE FAMILY HOLIDAYS IN PEMBROKESHIRE.

Photos and Description of this holiday cottage in Milford Haven - Blackbridge Cottage

3 bedroom cottage with outside decking and gardens, with views of wooded estuary

Blackbridge Cottage is a recently rebuilt, listed, Pembrokeshire cottage which has been part of Blackbridge Pill for over a century, first overlooking the ferry across the pill and then the new bridge. The Pill is a small estuary which harbours various small boats from the waters of the magnificent waterway of Milford Haven. Tucked away among the wooded wildlife of the estuary, the cottage is yet only five minutes from the vibrant shops and restaurants of Milford Marina.

The cottage has been painstakingly restored in line with listed building status to incorporate sash windows and limestone plaster. But its surprisingly spacious interior has a contemporary feel, and it benefits from all the modern appliances you'd wish for when on holiday. Park your car in front of the property and follow the slate steps past the decking area which covers the boathouse roof to enter onto the first floor landing. The first floor comprises the living area of the cottage, to the right the kitchen and living area with its island design and wood burner, to the left a dining room for more formal meals. Descend the wooden staircase to the bedrooms, the first the master double, the second with twin singles. Next to these is the bathroom with bath and separate shower. But guests may squabble over the third bedroom, the boathouse bedroom, with its folding back doors opening onto views of the pill itself.

The boathouse deck is perfect for late breakfasts and has floor lighting for evening sundowners, and the fenced and hedged garden is ideal for young children, whilst allowing access for adventurous children to the adjacent woods.

Blackbridge Cottage was purchased in 2003 by three friends from the town of Milford Haven. One lives locally still, one works in London and the third now runs gites in south west France. All three have young families and at least two will be using this property for their own holidays.

Bruce & Christine Evans purchased this cottage in 2003

We used to run from the Grammar School (now the comprehensive which you pass on your way to Blackbridge) down to Blackbridge as part of our cross country runs, which took us across the bridge, in front of the cottage, along the pill and back up through the woods on the other side. At that time the cottage was still lived in but sadly from the early 90's it fell empty and into disrepair and it has been a labour of love to restore it and make it into a modern home whilst retaining the character of a Pembrokeshire Cottage. I hope you will think we have succeeded.

The great advantage of owning a holiday home in Pembrokeshire, having grown up there, is that you can share its beauty and secrets with others, as well as return there yourself. The beaches of Pembrokeshire equal anything I have seen on my travels, and I have only visited a half of them! Within half an hour's drive of our cottage are Wattic and Barafundle beaches, two jewels of our unspoilt coastline. Alternatively you can enjoy sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing or wake boarding on the Milford Haven waterway itself, or take a trip beyond St.Anne's Head into the Irish Sea. Another day can be spent exploring the castles of Pembrokeshire, from basic motte and baileys hidden in woods, to the majesty of Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII. All of these sights and experiences can be accessed easily from Blackbridge but you may not wish to stray far. Sitting on the deck or strolling along the pill you will sight many different bird species, whilst a good walk will take you to Milford Marina and its amenities or to the town of Milford Haven with its rich heritage of American Quakers, Lord Nelson and the fishing industry.

Great cottage in lovely location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a great 2 week break here. The cottage was clean and the renovation has been done to a high standard. We found the owners very helpful throughout, from booking and even while we were there. There were plenty of things to do around the area, lots of lovely beaches and several places to eat. We would definitely recommend this property.

Great find. Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed at the cottage for a long weekend with our English Bulldog. We all had a wonderful time. The cottage has a wonderful kitchen, very spacious and, as with the rest of the property, really clean. The appliances were all new and very efficient. The cottage has a very spacious garden with a picnic table for dinners outdoors. Also, there is a beautiful walking path at the doorstep and Milford Haven is just a short five minute car ride away. The owner was very helpful throughout.

Nicely renovated cottage

  • 4 out of 5
A beautifully renovated cottage near to the village of Milford Haven. Lots to do and see in the surrounding area if the weather is good, with beautiful beaches nearby. You need a car though as there are no shops within easy walking distance. I gave 4 stars rather than 5 because the property only has one bathroom, but apart from that I would very much recommend it.

Milford Haven, extolled even by Shakespeare as one of the finest natural harbours, is at the centre of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which runs fully 186 miles from Amroth in the south east to St.Dogmaels in the north west. Along the way are to be found more Blue Flag beaches than in any other county of the U.K.,Broad Haven South, Freshwater West, Marloes and Whitesands to name but a few; historical towns and villages such as Tenby, Pembroke and St.Davids; and many sea and riverside pubs and restaurants.

Inland you can explore the county town of Haverfordwest, the Norman castles of the Landsker Line, the boutique shops of Narberth, Oakwood theme park, and the open spaces of the Preseli hills.

Offshore you can take boats to the islands of Skomer and Grassholm, rich in sea birds, or seek out the renowned Irish sea dolphins and porpoises in St.Brides' Bay.

Whether you are seeking to escape the stress of urban life or seeking an adrenalin fillled, fresh air, activity break, or both, Blackbridge Cottage is the perfect base.
