About Christine Reynolds
The owners are a semi retired couple who live in Pembrokeshire and enjoy many winter months in Carvoeiro. We have many friends in Pembroke, especially since running a small restaurant before retirement. Maurice was born and bred here in what is a small and friendly community. Christine also ran a villa rental company specialising in Carvoeiro for fifteen years and many of her owners and contacts in Carvoeiro have become good friends too. So, of course, we feel equally at home in either location. We both love walking the coast paths, eating out and exploring generally. We love "outdoor living" when possible and our two homes give us plenty of that. We are so, so lucky to be able to share our time in these lovely surroundings.
Christine Reynolds purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Christine Reynolds chose Pembroke
This building used to be an hotel, had closed down and I just fell for the grounds with the trees surrounding the grass with so many wild flowers, birds and butterflies. It's great that it adjoins the Pembroke nature reserve and we have our own access gate leading into the woods. The building is special - its Grade 2 listed and I wanted to restore as much as possible and convert into high spec apartments with tenants and visitors to enjoy the grounds and natural wildflowers and wildlife around. Everyone locally knows Holyland (pronounced Hollyland in these parts) and many have memories of christenings, weddings and functions being held here in the days of Holyland Country House Hotel as it was then known. Now there is a new life here but the wonderful atmosphere continues.
What makes this Apartment unique
You will enjoy the spacious rooms in this south facing ground floor apartment - it is wonderful for family parties and the ceiling will take a huge, huge Christmas tree too. Think about this if you have family nearby. We hope you will enjoy these individual apartments - they are all different and each has a charm of its own.

Pembrokeshire’s Other hidden gem.
Christine went out of her way to make us welcome even meeting us at 11pm when we arrived off the ferry. The Oaks was very clean and everything was new and worked well. Loads of hot water, a definite must if you have spent the day surfing and need to get warm and if the shower did not warm you through then the huge and ready laid log burner would. Stakepole estate just down the road for great walks, cream tea at Ye old World Cafe and then a free National Trust bus to get you back to your starting point. Thanks for a great stay
Thank you, it was great to meet you and we hope you will come again.
lovely spacious apartment.
the apartment was beautiful and light with everything you could need. the weather could have been better as we didn't get to eat in the lovely garden but it didn't stop us from getting out and about.
our enjoyable holiday in Pembrokeshire
The property was well placed for visiting the many attractions. It was a lovely holiday home and the owners very friendly. The area around was very scenic and there was an easy walk from the garden and through the wood to Pembroke and the castle. The apartment itself was spacious, well stocked with all the necessary equipment in the kitchen and with large windows and French doors made it lovely and light. It had a large patio area with table and chairs that was ideal after our days out. Ideal base for a lovely holiday with plenty of places to visit and beautiful scenery. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent accommodation in a perfect location for exploring Pembrokeshire.
A comfortable apartment with plenty of space for four people and a fine terrace for sitting outside in good weather.
A fifteen minute walk to the heart of Pembroke with it's many restaurants and pubs.
