About Gareth Hopkins

Having worked as a Sales Manager for over 30 years, my wife and I achieved our ambition of building our own house 2010. We had always planned to retire to Pembroke from Cardiff and make the most of the spectacular, but unspoilt beauty of Pembrokeshire.

Our interests are walking, fishing, boats, rugby but most of all foreign travel. Having travelled fairly extensively, we find the peace and tranquility of where we live a key attraction.

Gareth Hopkins purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Gareth Hopkins chose Pembroke Dock

The accomodation is on the ground floor of our home with it's own private access.

Views from the front on the house are over the tidal Haven Waterway and you can be beachcoming yards from the front door.

There is a tidal slipway for dingy, canoe launching. At certain times of the year the foreshore is a haven for hundreds of sea birds.

We have some of the best beaches in the UK all within 30 mins. drive of the house.

It is in a quiet but not remote location, however a car is required.

We are centrally placed for visiting all key areas of Pembroke.

The ferry to Ireland sails twice a day and is 5mins from the property.

What makes this apartment unique

Peaceful gardens at the rear of the property are accessed by steps (not suitable for elderly or very young children). There is a picnic table with views of the Haven Waterway and the owners BBQ is available subject to weather.

The Haven is unique. Be it is watching the ferry arrive/depart, beachcoming, or taking to to the water in your own craft.

Surrounded by the Pembrokeshire Coastal Footbath and stunning scenery places such as Freshwater East, Barafundle, Dale, Newgale etc are never to far away.
