They enjoy a love of the sea and value the heritage and unique environmental qualities of this coastal area.

Sally is a social studies graduate of London's Royal Holloway College and combines the job of mum with work in technology press and PR.

They are committed to sharing this outstanding location with like minded visitors to Pembrokeshire and to delivering an exceptional holiday experience at an affordable price.

Peter Lay purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Peter Lay chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

This is a romantic traditional stone built (1862) cottage, bursting with character, sited a mere km or so from the famous Pembrokeshire National Coast Park footpath and two amazing world class, National Trust owned beaches.

The environment is a haven for anyone with an interest in geography, geology, history, conservation, wild life (particularly ornithology), photography, fauna and magnificent seascapes.

It is also perfectly located for outdoor enthusiasts and particularly those who enjoy any of the following activites: walking, coastal trail runs, cycling, swimming, surfing, sailing, water ski, fishing and enjoying fine, remote and relaxing beaches away from the madding crowd.

A National Nature Reserve of special international importance, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Norman churches and medieval castles are either a short walk or road journey from the property.

The property is popular with members and families of The National Trust and the British based Women's Institute.

It sits peacefully in a secluded woodland glade festooned with wild life and fauna within the National Trust owned Stackpole Estate.

The quality of fixture and fittings, kitchen equipment and in-home entertainment, coupled with the presentation of the cottage is modelled to at least the high standards found in National Trust Holiday Cottages throughout the UK.

What makes this cottage unique

The stream side property offers total privacy and is set at the end of a tree lined track in a woodland glade. Unlike so many holiday rentals in the area this is not a communal unit- there are no neighbours, owners or holiday makers!

The managed gardens comprise of nearly one acre and the surrounding woodland views encompass a further five acres.

A babbling stream runs alongside one side of the garden and is a fond and lasting memory for many guests. Pooh sticks are a favourite game for the children. The adjacent woods provide a playground of exploration and mountain bike fun for all the family.

This property is toasty warm in winter and cool in summer with a variety of sun terraces and outdoor furniture. It is maintianed to a high standard and is continually improved year on year.

There are gentle grade short walks to Britain's smallest harbour at Stackpole Quay, (which is also home to the mouth watering Boathouse Café), the famous Lily Ponds at Bosherston, the nation's favourite beach at Barafundle Bay and historic Pembroke Town (with its medieval castle being the birth place of King Henry VII) is a short car journey away.

Subject: Thank you!

Dear Peter,

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Wood Cottage. Despite nearly all of our party getting flu at one point or another, we had the most lovely time. I can guarantee that we will certainly be back as we feel that we have barely touched the surface of all the things to do and see in the area! The perfect cottage in the most lovely, secluded location. Thank you once again.

Wonderful cottage, cozy and homely

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the cold and dark but Athena had left the cottage in a welcoming manner, being lit by lamps and with the heating on. Very well equipped and comfortably furnished. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are great. We stayed for 5 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Lots of lovely walks from the doorstep. Can't wait to revisit Wood Cottage.

We had a most relaxing stay at Wood Cottage.

On arrival we were greeted by a welcome tray of cut flowers, milk and welsh cakes with a lovely note from the caretaker with her details should we need her help. It felt as if we had come somewhere very special.

The cottage is beautifully presented, well equipped and contains everything you could need or wish for and more, including a washing machine, dishwasher and a tumble dryer. Immaculately clean, warm and comfortable in a peaceful location in its own land by a stream.

There are lovely walks through the woods right by the property and the area is full to the brim of interesting places to visit. The beaches are stunning and we managed to swim in the sea near Manorbier in September! Carew Castle and Mill are worth a visit too along with the church opposite Wood Cottage. Fresh veg are available at Stackpole Walled gardens and we sampled great soup in the cafe there.

The owner is a conscientious host and telephoned us to make sure that all was well and as it should be - a considerate and appreciated touch.

Although there is no mobile telephone signal the excellent wifi made up for it. As another reviewer has noted it is, however, reassuring to know that there is a landline at the property should it be needed.

The cherry on the cake would have been to see otters in the garden but even knowing they are in the area and may be close by is magical in itself.

We sincerely hope to return to this beautiful property one day and would not hesitate to recommend it. A unique place and experience.

Lovely cottage, lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Wood Cottage. The cottage and gardens were excellent in all areas. Walks from the door to the Lilly ponds and beaches. Great location for dogs also. Would recommend this cottage/area. This was our first visit to Pembrokeshire, and it was great.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the gates of Wood Cottage on a lovely warm sunny day..with a WOW. Fantastic and everything we hoped it would be. Lovely walks right from the doorstep, with beaches not too far away. The cottage was very homely and welcoming, with the sound of the stream running by so peaceful. The sunshine settled on different areas of the garden which was nice, with the barbeque area perfect for late afternoon. Would certainly recommend it for relaxation, or a walking holiday. Our dog Dexter loved it too!

Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week in wood cottage. The cottage was really week equipped. We (dogs included) loved the garden and the walks right out the door. The outdoor seating and summer house were great, and the stackpole inn nearby serves lovely food. All in all can't recommend enough.

A superbly kept cottage. Up to date but with plenty of character and charm. The location is the best I have found in many years of renting holiday homes in the UK.

Wood Cottage ( a 2015 Visit Wales 4 STAR accredited holiday property), is located in an exceptionally desirable coastal location on the National Trust owned Stackpole Estate, in an unspoiled corner of south Pembrokeshire in south west Wales. It is within a short stroll of the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, one of Britain’s National Trails, and the village of Stackpole is a mere 10 minute walk away. With only 15 designated National Trails in England and Wales it’s no wonder that this cottage also sits in the heart of Europe’s only coastal National Park. Wood Cottage nestles peacefully alone in nearly an acre of its own private land. It is completely sheltered from on-shore winds by a streamlined woodland glade. The property is at the end of an exclusive vehicle friendly tree lined track. From the doorstep walk to Barafundle Beach, voted time and time again as one of the best beaches in Britain and the world and often likened to a Caribbean beach! Historic Pembroke Town and the Victorian seaside town of Tenby are close by.

Other Activities: Rock climbing, photography, coastal walks, Dolphin safari

Golf: There is an 18 hole course at Pembroke Dock enjoying views of the Milford Haven estuary (about 7 km), a championship links course at Tenby (7 km), and a country park course at Trefloyne (12 km).
