About Jayne

My family and i have owned Squirrel Rest for 15 years.

Our home is split level with a holiday flat/ annex on the garden level.

We used to rent out the holiday flat but have now decided to rent out the main house instead. I love my home and it makes me happy when my guests enjoy our home to.

Jayne purchased this house in 2000

Why Jayne chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

For me its the location so close to Saundersfoot and Tenby but in a very quiet cul de sac so all you hear is the birds singing all day. I look after our home very well as it is our home not just a business holiday home

What makes this house unique

WiFi and TVs in bedrooms , plenty of games and films to keep the children occupied when at home. Parking and secure garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We first came ten years ago with two small boys. Now they are teenagers and we still found lots to do despite the rain. The house gave us lots of space and everything we needed. Hope its not another ten years before we come back.

everything we could need and a bit more

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find house packed to the rafters with everything we could need and a bit more. We took so much with us to entertain the grandchildren but there was so much to do in the house and around the area that we didn't even unpack their toys. My grandsons didn't want to leave! The house was beautifully presented, clean and well maintained and felt like a home from home. We didn't feel like we were on holiday, it felt more like we were house sitting for a friend. We tried a lot of the local attractions suggested by the owner especially Folly Farm which was very good value and Dinosaur Land.

We loved it so much that on our return home we booked for next year. 10 out of 10.

Home from home - a perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The squirrels rest is in a quiet cul-de-sac, and the perfect location for a holiday home. Well furnished and spotlessly clean, the house really did feel like a home from home. After a lazy day on the beach, the kids loved coming back to play on the xbox, whilst we enjoyed the large TV and selection of DVDs. Two bathrooms and plenty of bedrooms meant everyone was happy. The kitchen has all mod-cons and Jane the owner was more than helpful when showing us around her lovely property. Her gifts of local honey and fine wine, certainly made our stay extra special. We all enjoyed our time at the squirrels rest and hope to rebook soon.

Practically perfect in every way : )

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by a Jane upon arrival whom made us feel really welcome. Her home is superb, well equipped throughout and lots of space. We had our 4 year old granddaughter with us and she fell in love with the house saying it was her other house ( Jane did have a cupboard with children's dressing up clothes) but it wasn't just down to that. We all liked the location as it wasn't far to go to Saundersfoot or Tenby and there are some amenities close by.

Jane you have a beautiful home and a great eye for detail for your guests to enjoy.

Thank you, The Hughes family, Shropshire

What a wonderful holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our son's family (4 adults and two children, ages 3 and 6) at Squirrels Rest and had a really terrific week. The house is beautifully furnished, spacious, extremely comfortable and equipped to a higher standard than any holiday home we have ever stayed in. Nothing has been overlooked and Jane made us feel at home right from the off. Eleven out of ten!!

A clean and well equipped family home

  • 4 of 5

The house was as advertised - well maintained, equipped and could accommodate our extended family very well. The electronic games and Sky TV kept our teenagers occupied in quiet times. The downstairs shower room was helpful for our older family members.

We enjoyed the balcony and the garden which was very relaxing.

We were a little disappointed that there were few local facilities - shops and pubs etc. which meant that we had to use the car whenever we wanted to go out and we couldn't locate good dog walking country from the house itself - again necessitating the use of the car.

The owner met us on arrival and departure and left us with a mobile number should we need to contact.

Locally we would recommend the Blue Lagoon water park and the spa at the Bluestone Resort. We also had a lovely day out in Tenby - smashing beaches and an interesting pedestrian friendly town to look round - something for everyone.

Owner's Response: Squirrels Rest is located in a quiet cul de sac in a residential area. At the top of the road 5 min walk is a post office, Spar, garage and Chinese restaurant and bar. There is a small play area / park for children but dogs are not allowed in. Other than that Saundersfoot village, killgetty village and Tenby town, beachs are a short drive away. As a rule i don't take dogs but after booking if a guest asks me if i would consider letting there pet come i do consider it, and if they agree to my pets terms and conditions i allow them to bring there pet. As its not something i encourage or use as a selling point to attract guests i am sorry my guests were disappointed there was no where close by to exercise there dog.

Everything you could need for a family stay, our children didn't want to leave the cottage, play station, xbox & tv's in every bedroom!

Even a frame for my parent was supplied.
