About Stumpy Corner

As you drive the leafy lanes approaching the cottage, you will realise you have chosen a very special holiday destination on the tranquil shores of the Western Cleddau River. Sleeping 7, with WiFi, wood burner, pet-friendly, idyllic and peaceful, Stumpy Corner beckons a most desirable escape.

  • The spacious property offers practical, tasteful accommodation for family gatherings or groups of friends choosing an idyllic getaway, yet is located only a 10-minute drive to the nearest town & within 12 miles of glorious, sandy beaches.
  • Relax on the large comfortable sofas in the beamed sitting room, with full-length patio window, which brings the beautiful river views right into the room. Unwind in the glow of the cosy wood burner on chillier evenings.
  • The welcoming, well-equipped, beamed, spacious kitchen with quarry tile floor, high-quality pine units and large cooking range will inspire any budding chef, who doesn't have to cook alone, as the family can enjoy a glass of wine & a chat at the bistro table overlooking the river.
  • The well-appointed bedrooms promise a hushed night's sleep, decorated in natural tones, with comfortable mattresses and white quality linen, all enjoying river views. Spend precious holiday time on the raised deck of the master bedroom.
  • The cosy snug is ideal for children or blissful time out with a good book.
  • Enjoy evening meals together in the versatile, spacious conservatory, watching the changing views, immersing in the plethora of wildlife. Watch the sun go down at the end of a perfect Pembrokeshire day.
  • Stroll along the river's edge spotting ducks, herons and busy dippers fishing for their next meal or brightly coloured kingfishers darting over the water and maybe an otter or two. You may even see a fox, squirrels or badgers.
  • The two patio areas are the ideal spot to enjoy this silent retreat, somewhere to reconnect with yourself in a tranquil paradise.
  • An ideal base, throughout the year, from which to explore the beautiful sandy beaches of south Pembrokeshire, Tenby, Saundersfoot or mid-county, Broad Haven, Little Haven and the renowned Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

N.B. Great care required with children & dogs due to the close proximity of the river & mud banks at low tide.

We loved the peaceful, quiet location and the space inside the house especially the wrap around conservatory.The cottage/house is however past it's best and some parts were in need of replacement or repair, particularly the outdoor seating, upper patio and fences and balustrades to the lower patio area. Although we were aware that there was no freezer before we went this really is a major missing item when the location of the house is considered - it really is well off the beaten track!There were basic cookery items missing - potato peeler, measuring jug, scales, without which cooking was more difficult. When we phoned about these items the measuring jug was provided, a julienne cutter was bought (not really too useful) but no scales!The heating system had also been left on and with lovely warm weather we did our utmost to understand the instructions to turn this off but as some of the thermostatic valves were not working this proved annoying.

Thank you for allowing a Short Break in the wonderful 'Stumpy Corner'. What a fabulously comfortable house with awe-inspiring views, so therapeutic, as we were saying a very sad goodbye to my husband's mother, Margie Thomas of Neyland. The peacefulness and wonder of nature helped us greatly. We will definitely return for a week. Very many thanks again.
