About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, lounge, dining, conservatory, driveway parking

St Brides is a beautifully modernised West Wales detached stone cottage - one of the oldest houses in Saundersfoot. It has been in our family for nearly 50 years and was formally owned by an old Sea Captain. All the front rooms have panoramic views of the beach and the bay. We are 200M from Saundersfoot beach, the harbour, the town's shops and restaurants. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is nearby.

The cottage, with its thick stone walls and beamed ceilings, has been completely fitted out to a high standard for your comfort and enjoyment. There are 3 bedrooms: 1 king, 1 double and 1 bedroom with bunk beds for 2 children. There is a very good upstairs bathroom (bath, shower, wc and basin) and downstairs shower room with wc. The kitchen, dining room and lounge are all separate rooms.

The lounge has a wonderful wood burning stove (basket of logs provided), large TV with BT Vision/Sport and is equipped with a Yamaha iPod/iPhone player

WiFi is provided via BT and it runs at 4-6Mb. BT Sport is also provided that allows film downloads and recording of your favourite TV shows.

There are books, games and some dvds provided with the cottage. The books are mostly modern novels - recently bought for reading groups!

The Garden: The front garden and lovely large terrace over look the bay/beach. There are chairs and a table in the conservatory. The rear garden is sloping. There are stone steps and retaining walls in the garden and unguarded drops of about 1m. The garden is reasonably secure and children and pets should be supervised and/or be careful. The garden is not completely pet proof. There is a rotary washing line.

Unusually for the centre of Saundersfoot, there is off road parking on the drive for two or three cars which is accessed off St Brides Hill. The gateway to the drive is wide enough for family cars (9 feet). To leave by car most people reverse out which requires assistance. The photographs show the access and driveway and the terraced garden.

The amenities of Saundersfoot are within a short walk down St Brides Hill. The long sandy beach (within 200 metres) has safe bathing, good fishing and magical rock pools to explore! The harbour is directly below the cottage with fishing & leisure boats and the Saundersfoot Sailing Club.

The luxurious St Brides Hotel is very close by where you can enjoy a great meal or a visit to the luxurous Spa.

We pride ourselves on making your stay as enjoyable as possible - please go to the 'Reviews' section to see what previous visitors think!

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting cottages in the UK for almost 20 years and this is one of the best. It certainly met our expectations and more. First of all, working with the owner prior to arrival was informative, helpful and pleasant. We found extensive information on all the appliances, TV, fireplace, etc. It is a comfortable, cozy place, yet full of modern conveniences. The sun porch was a bonus and the bench overlooking the harbor a wonderful place to sit in the sun and have coffee or wine. We were a short 5 minute walk downhill to the town, close to the Coast Path, and convenient to the Bus, which we took to Tenby. There were several pubs, and a wonderful little bakery. We strongly recommend this cottage and hope to return some day. Please be advise that the drive way and parking is a tight fit and not friendly to large cars. One good thing, the owner provides very good information on the driveway, parking and locating the key.

A lovely trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at St Brides cottage as that was where my wife's family had always stayed when visiting Saundersfoot in the 70s. The trip down memory lane did not disappoint with the cottage retaining many of its original features and rustic charm. At the same time some new features (such as the large patio area overlooking the harbour) provided new possibilities. We will be back in the area for my daughter's wedding next year and St Brides cottage will be on our list of possible accommodation. If I had to give some constructive criticism, it would be that the bath towels in the main bedroom were a bit small to cover ones modesty when going to and from the bathroom! Other than that thanks for a great extended weekend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write that great review - it is much appreciated! It was good to hear that you had a great time and enjoyed returning to St Brides Cottage after so many years. I'll be replacing the bath towels in the next few weeks and will get some extra large bath sheets which I hope will do the job. All the best and, as you know, you would be very welcome back at anytime in the future. Peter

Lovely cozy cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this cottage over the Easter break with my sister and our husbands and our two dogs. Plenty of room for all in a well equipped cottage in an ideal location. Plenty of local walks along the beach to enjoy and the views from the cottage were quite spectacular.

Would recommend to any dog walkers.

Fabulous Mother's Day Short Break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and views are even lovelier than the photos portray. A fabulous choice for a few days away with my 80 year old mother who really appreciated the character, charm and facilities of the cottage, including the Royal Doulton dinner service! On arrival, she was so impressed with the view from her bedroom that she said she would be quite happy to while away the days just sitting by the window watching the world go by!

Unbelievably sunny weather. Did not want to come home and hope to visit again but for a full week as so much exploring still to do. Thanks Peter for making us feel so welcome. Kath, Steve, Ethel and dogs.

Excellent weekend break

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cottage all be it a very large cottage everything there you could possibly need and a welcome bottle of proseco was just what was needed when getting there in the evening. The views from there are excellent and just a short walk to the beach with the dogs and we were even lucky with the weather for November no rain! Have recommend this cottage to family and friends and would definitely consider a summer break there. The log burner was great and we all enjoyed that especially the dogs

Saundersfoot is a seaside village with a picturesque harbour and a long, wide, gently sloping sandy beach. It is popular with all age groups, walkers and watersports enthusiasts. Originally a fishing village, it is now one of South Pembrokeshire's favourite holiday spots. In the village and surrounding area there are a wide range of activities and eaterys for the holiday visitor.

St Brides Cottage probably has one of the best locations in Saundersfoot with stunning views over the bay and the harbour yet within walking distance of all amenities and the beach.
