About Julia and Richard Voke
We live in Bristol but have been holidaying in Pembrokeshire for the last thirty years. The beauty of the coastal walking and the ever-changing sea never cease to lift our spirits and replenish us, allowing us to deal with the hustle of our busy lives. It is a wonderful area for photography with beautiful views and wildlife. We also love the outdoor activities and enjoy swimming, surfing, kayaking and coasteering.
Julia and Richard Voke purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Julia and Richard Voke chose Nolton and Roch
We were drawn to Westerly because of the closeness of the sea and Pembrokeshire coastal path. All of the activities we enjoy can be accessed from the cottage without having to drive.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Wonderful time in Nolton Haven
Lovely property and location. We all enjoyed our stay and we also bought some of the owners art work.
Comfy cottage in an excellent location
Well equipped cottage a stone’s throw from a beautiful beach. Everything you could think of was there. The garage is stocked with wetsuits, body boards, buckets, beach chairs, crab lines.....you name it. Having a wet room accessible via the back garden made sandy footprints through the house a thing of the past. Very quick responses from the owners to any queries. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage if you want to explore the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline.
A quiet retreat
Just returned from a lovely week in Norton Haven. The cottage was a 1-2 minute walk to a little dog friend beach and super new Brassiere. The cottage is very well equipped for self catering and has everything you need for the beach from snorkels to surfboards. Very peaceful location with stunning coastal walks on your doorstep. We look forward to our return.
Excellent location by beach
Very well equipped, helpful owners.
Had a lovely week . The house was very well organised and clean. We really liked the Lego brick key system.
3-Night stay in June 2019
Great cottage in a fab location; only a minute from the sea and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path! The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
There are so many outdoor activities to do: walking the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastal path and Preseli Hills; swimming at one of the many beaches; horse riding, zorbing and Segway at Nolton Stables just up the road; surfing, kayaking, coasteering, paddle boarding, kite surfing or kite boarding with tuition and equipment hire available at Big Blue Experience in Newgale; sea fishing from St Justinian’s and Dale or crabbing at Solva and Porth Clais. Nolton Haven is on the Sustrans Route 4 national cycle path from London to Fishguard and there are other challenging or gentle bike rides, some off-road in the area.
There are Pembrokeshire castles to visit – such as Pembroke, Carew and Manorbier. Britain’s smallest city, St David’s, with its ruined Bishop’s Palace and majestic cathedral, has lots of art galleries, pubs and cafes. Further afield is an Iron Age encampment and the Centre for Alternative Technology.
This area of Wales is superb for walking. The Pembrokeshire Coastal path runs unbroken for 186 miles and Westerly is just metres away from it. The flowers, particularly in May, are wonderful and there are sea birds, such as cormorants and gannets, unusual rock formations, ship wrecks, porpoises and puffins to see.
There is also excellent walking with wonderful panoramic views in the nearby Preseli Hills or Mountains to the north.
The No.400 Puffin Shuttle bus runs around the coast line from St David’s to Marloes with Nolton Haven half way round. This allows for a one way walk with the return journey by bus and avoids the need for a circular route.
The walks either way from Westerly, towards Newgale or Druidston Haven, are beautiful. You can use a mileage calculator to work out how far you plan to go.
