Enjoy a tranquil seaside break with holiday cottages in Saundersfoot

Saundersfoot is small town on the West Coast of Wales, in the county of Pembrokeshire. As part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Saundersfoot offers stunning coastal walks and vistas. Along with its’ larger neighbour, Tenby, the town plays host to thousands of tourists annually who come to enjoy the delightful golden beaches, the unspoiled coastline and the traditional harbour.

HomeAway has a delightful range of holiday cottages in Saundersfoot, suitable for both large groups and couples. The majority are within easy reach of the seafront and come with their own private gardens. Options include traditional stone cottages with exposed beams and bright modern renovations with the latest appliances. Solo travellers and couples may also want to consider a holiday apartment in Saundersfoot. The collection includes charming apartments full of character, making them an ideal option for a short break or romantic getaway.

Whilst Saundersfoot is an excellent destination for a peaceful coastal break, those searching for more physical activities might want to consider basing themselves in Gwynedd, near the stunning peaks of Snowdonia. Besides hiking, the area is also popular with cyclists and horse riders. HomeAway also offers accommodation on the Welsh Island of Anglesey, for guests looking for a mixture of natural beauty and history.

The Dragon Reptile Experience allows an up-close and personal experience with dragons, geckos, tortoises, turtles, snakes and spiders, whilst the nearby island of Caldey is host to a herd of Grey Atlantic Seals.

Heritage Trails: Saundersfoot has a rich history as a coal and anthracite mining town, whilst its’ harbour was recognised at one stage as a major port.

Guided walks detailing the history of the town are also available.

Plenty of parking and the property was just sufficient distance from passing traffic. The house was delightful, spotlessly clean and very well supplied with sets of cutlery, glasses and crockery, all of good quality. Plenty of bedroom space and two bathrooms, one with a heated floor which was great as we stayed at the end of November. The sea view from the lounge picture window was a favourite place to sit and read. The "welcome pack" was very useful for getting us up and running when we arrived
