Why we recommend Ria's Cottage...

Small holiday cottage Pembrokeshire Secret Waterway Landshipping between Narberth and Lawrenny. Pet friendly

About Ria's Cottage
Pretty, small holiday cottage Pembrokeshire's Secret Waterway - Pet friendly
  • A little gem of a cottage in a picturesque rural setting.  At the top of a gentle hill, there are far-reaching panoramic views across the wooded hillsides of the Cleddau River to Picton Castle and the beautiful Slebech estate and to the Preseli Hills beyond. Pets welcome.
  • For walkers, painters, photographers and lovers of nature, peace and tranquillity this is a true 'rural retreat' (part of a 15 acre smallholding) away from the hurly-burly of modern life.
  • This cosy holiday cottage sits snugly at the top of a 0.5 mile 'bumpy' country track, 100 yards beyond the owners' house. A gate leads from the professionally landscaped cottage garden into a 'wild flower' meadow - relax and enjoy the view from table and chairs in the charming 'gazebo'.
  • The delightful rear garden with its patio and garden furniture is reached through glass doors from the sitting room and is sheltered by ancient Pembrokeshire woodland.
  • Lovingly renovated, the pretty holiday cottage has a ground floor bedroom, 'wet' room, and luxury fitted kitchen with dining table. The sitting room has a log burning stove, high vaulted ceiling and patio doors to the rear garden. The ground floor is level throughout.







About The Area
An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in South Pembrokeshire
  • Although inland, much of this area is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It is a place of outstanding natural beauty with many SSSI's and is surrounded and criss-crossed by wonderful walking country, ancient pathways and winding country lanes.  It is a walkers' paradise!
  • At the bottom of the cottage track - a public right of way - is Landshipping Quay and the broad sweep of the Cleddau River where Ospreys rest and feed on their annual migration.
Lawrenny Quay, Cwm Deri Vineyard & Bosherston Lily Ponds (NT)
  • Lawrenny Quay with its pub and award winning café overlooking the River, and Cwm Deri Vineyard and restaurant, are each a 10 minute drive away. Bosherston is a little further and well worth a visit at any time of year but particularly during June when the beautiful lilies are in blossom.
Traditional elegant tea served at nearby Nash Farm near Martletwy
  • Drive through Minwear Woods to enjoy a delicious traditional tea in Nash Farm's magnificent and ancient farmhouse.  Enjoy the impressive Flemish chimney or sit out in the immaculate and colourful gardens.
Narberth Market Town near pretty stone cottage
  • The bustling town of Narberth with lots of individual shops, cafes and pubs (great for Christmas shopping) is within a 20 minute drive.  Take the family and enjoy a day out and perhaps catch a performance in the popular and vibrant Queen's Hall on the high street.
  • For an romantic evening meal try The Grove - a three AA Rosette restaurant serving locally sourced fresh ingredients in a stylish setting.
Bluestone Water Park, Canaston
  • A fabulous day out for the whole family. The park has a large pool with waves, a small relaxing pool, a lazy river and a wild river, spa pool, flume rides in and out of the building and much more. There are also cafe and restaurant areas and plenty of places to relax out of the water.
Tenby, Manorbier and Saundersfoot's Blue Flag Beaches
  • All South Pembrokeshire's fabulous coastline is easily accessible from this cottage near the Secret Waterway inland shipping.
Tudor Merchants House, Tenby, National Trust
  • Discover how the Tudors lived their daily lives. Staff in costume will help you to get the most out of your visit. Children can dress up too!
Carew Castle, Tidal Mill, Celtic Cross and Inn
  • Nestled on the river, the picturesque hamlet of Carew is a fascinating place to visit.  It is dominated by its magnificent castle with a 2000 year history, the restored and working tidal mill - the only one of its kind in Wales, the ancient Celtic Cross and the Crew Inn serving excellent pub food.
RWG Auctions, Carew
  • Interesting monthly auctions selling an eclectic mix of antiques, collectables, bygones, vehicles, marine items and much more. Great fun for collectors, bargain hunters and historians.
Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre
  • Housed in a unique 1850's gun tower beside the bustling Haven Waterway the centre tells the story of Wales' only Royal Naval Dockyard which built 260 ships including 5 royal yachts. Well worth a visit!
Picton Castle Gardens
  • Picton Castle is set in 40 acres of magnificent woodland and walled gardens. Enjoy a special kind of magic as you stroll beneath some of the largest trees in West Wales and discover woodland walks with wild flowers mixed with woodland shrubs from all over the world.
Picton Castle 
  • Guided tours around the castle and special events, including Family Fun Days, Outdoor Theatre, Garden Tours and Music Evenings take place during the summer. Maria’s Courtyard Restaurant is a lovely spot e for a tasty lunchtime or afternoon indulgence and the restaurant, shop and deli is open all year round.
Jewellery Making Courses, Martletwy

The long wild stretch of sand and pounding surf offer a surfing destination only for experienced surfers and a walk to blow the cobwebs away!
  • A more temperate experience is to be had - as well as a cup of tea and fantastic local food - in the Wavecrest Cafe at West Angle Bay - just up the road. Open 11 am to 5 pm March - September and Friday - Sunday 11 am to 4 pm October - February, you can enjoy wonderful views of the Pembrokeshire Coastline while you relax and refuel.
