About Owner Yr Hen Ardd
As children, my husband and I visited Pembrokeshire with our familes regularly for Summer holidays. My husband camped every year in Marloes, not far from the top of Marloes Sands near the mere, and I stayed more in the Saundersfoot/Tenby/Freshwater areas. Our families passion for this beautiful area started our dream to one day own a property here ourselves. Our first holiday together was to Marloes, where we camped on the village green. We have visited regularly as a family ourselves since our daughter was just a month old or so, and have been returning upto 4 times a year since. We just can't stay away and plan to make Pembrokeshire our home as soon as we are able.
Owner Yr Hen Ardd purchased this House in 2017
Why Owner Yr Hen Ardd chose Saint Ishmael's
This property is large and spacious and more modern than other properties we have stayed in the area at. It is a great place for families to share or for family/friend celebrations. There are two lesser known beaches, Monks Haven and Lindsway Bay, both can easily be walked to within 10 minutes. There is also a great little pub in the village, the Brook Inn, just a couple of minutes walk away, who are serving tasty but simple pub food. There is a good beer garden and children are welcome. Pets also allowed in the garden area.
What makes this House unique
Large bedrooms, character kitchen/diner with plenty of room for families and friends to enjoy sharing meal-times together. Lovely quiet location, near to visitor attractions but away from the madding crowds.Right on the edge of the village and just a few minutes walk to the two beaches, the coastal path and the pub.

Great for all ages of family & dogs.
Great spacious family house. Location is good, you don’t have to travel far to all the really lovely beaches. Safe & secure garden for children & dogs. Lots of cooking pots supplied for big family meals. Great seafood is easily available either in local pubs or for cooking at home. The deli in Littlehaven is especially good for lobsters and crabs. The bbq is a great asset,we used it three times in the week. The large table makes family dining a great experience.
We would go again and hopefully will.That’s the best compliment we can offer.
Thank you for the biggest compliment. We would love you to visit Yr Hen Ardd again, you would be most welcome. The beaches really are amazing in the area, we are spoilt for choice! We are so glad to hear that you made good use of the BBQ and you found that cooking for a large family group was easy with the pots etc which we provide. We wanted group meals to be easy and enjoyed together at the large table. It's a great way to all come together and discuss the day's activities. The seafood is a great bonus, we are very lucky to have some great new options in the area for seafood, pizza, pub and restaurant meals. We hope to see you again at Yr Hen Ardd, St.Ishmaels.
Lovely property - well presented
Very comfortable - plenty of space - comfortable beds - pleasantly decorated and ideal for our family of 8 adults 4small children and 1dog. We loved the beaches in the area, particularly Marloes, despite the trek down. We were lucky enough to have fabulous weather.
We are so glad you had such a comfortable stay and enjoyed Yr Hen Ardd for your family stay. The beaches in the area are just wonderful and Marloes Sands has been our favourite for many years. You did have amazing weather, and this can often be the case in the area, with it's very special microclimate. We do hope you'll visit again next time you visit the area.
Fantastic Holiday at Yr Hen Ardd, St Ishmaels, Pembrokeshire
The house exceeded our expectations. There were 10 in our party, 6 adults and 4 children and the house met all our requirements. The bedrooms were well appointed, the beds were very comfy, the kitchen / dining room was large enough to sit 12 at a long table and the lounge had enough easy chairs, dvds and games to keep everyone happy. The weather was very good and the local beaches were great.
A Haven in Pembrokeshire!
This house is absolutely lovely. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. Well equipped and perfect for big groups. We really had a lovely time and enjoyed the house very much. The owners were helpful and easy to contact. Superb weekend!
