About Ferry Boat House

Luxurious Haven Waterway holiday home with stunning panoramic views

  • Overlooking the expansive shimmering waters of the Haven Waterway and with stunning views from most rooms, this is a spacious modern waterside home, beautifully and stylishly furnished.
  • A large rear decked area overlooks the Haven, the spacious lounge and fully equipped large luxury kitchen opens into a dining/conservatory – both with patio doors to the decking – a breathtaking spot for al fresco dining!
  • There are 3 lovely bedrooms, (each with TV)  the master with a super king size bed, en-suite shower room and a balcony, a double aspect twin bedroom with 4’ beds (both with Haven views)  and a ground floor double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. 


About The Area
Haven Waterway SSSI
  • This is Wales’ largest estuary and a birdwatchers paradise – do remember your binoculars - with a wondrous variety of wildfowl and waders as the tides ebbs and flows.
  • Relax and watch the comings and goings of the pleasure boats as well as commercial shipping  – the Irish Ferry sails in and out twice daily – witness a true masterpiece of navigation as it manoeuvres its way up to its berth!

Ferry Inn

  • The ancient Ferry Inn is a 10 minute walk away along a footpath.Enjoy a warm welcome and good food in this unique setting tucked almost beneath the bridge with its alfresco dining area overlooking the water.
  • Once upon a time ferry men rowed their wooden ferry boats from here across the Haven –the fastest way between Pembroke and Haverfordwest until the building of the Cleddau Toll Bridge which follows almost the same route across the water.

Cleddau Hotel

  • This modern hotel with its bar and restaurant for evening meals - all day breakfasts and afternoon teas too -  is within a short walk.

Pembroke

  • Pembroke with its ancient town wall and mighty Norman castle, steeped in history, is a 5 minute drive.  Tudor and Georgian houses line the main street with its mixture of pubs, restaurants and shops.
  • Henry VII was born in the castle which is well preserved and offers a glimpse into the medieval life style – there are lots of events staged here too including falconry displays, a ‘Knights School’ and guided tours.

Neyland Yacht Haven & Marina

  • Sea-faring trips or river cruises can be arranged from across the bridge at the Marina - charter a boat for a mackerel fishing trip, try a ‘wreck’ fishing expedition, or an island adventure to the famous bird islands of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm with their resident population of Atlantic Grey Seals in the seas skirting around the island rocks. 
  • Enjoy refreshments at Brunel’s Café with its terrace for al-fresco dining overlooking the Marina – good home cooked food – as well as The Bar Restaurant.
  • Do try a peaceful cruise on the Celtic Wildcat along the quiet tranquil ‘Secret Waterway’  -  more than 20 miles of navigable waterway from the mouth of the Cleddau to the nature reserves of the upper reaches where the only sounds are  birds, the breeze rustling through the trees and the gentle splash of water .

Brunel's Cycle Trail

  • For a family day out why not follow this traffic free trail between Neyland & Haverfordwest, (9 miles in total)  part of the Celtic Trail - National Route 4 -  The path runs through the Westfield Pill Nature Reserve, a sheltered inlet from the Cleddau Waterway, and continues along the route of the Great Western Railway built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel  150 years ago.
  • This is a wide and well surfaced purpose built popular shared use path with lovely views and an abundance of wildlife in the undisturbed banks on either side of the trail, (Bike hire: Mikes Bikes, 17 Prendergast, Haverfordwest, Tel: 01437 760068 sales, service, repairs and hire).

Milford Haven

  • This historic fishing port is well worth a visit with its harbour now home to expensive pleasure yachts,  its quayside lined with cafes, art/craft galleries and a museum full of local history. 
  • Check out the programme of events at the award winning Torch Theatre in the town with its cinema, live stage shows, satellite screening of ballets, operas etc., café/bar and gallery.

South Pembrokeshire & Coastal Path

  • South Pembrokeshire’s fabulous beaches and Coastal Path are all within a short drive including Manorbier, a sandy cove (popular with families) overlooked by its picturesque medieval Castle, Freshwater West, Angle (do eat at the Point House right by the water’s edge,  only accessible on foot at low tide) popular with surfers and bustling VictorianTenby with its Blue Flag Beaches. 

Bosherston Lily Ponds (NT)

  • Take a walk around Bosherston's beautiful lily ponds, a breathtaking sight when the lilies are in full bloom during June and July.  This is a wild life haven all year round and you may even be lucky enough to spot an Otter going about its daily chores. 

Bosherston Village

  • No visit to this small village is complete without tea at ‘The Olde Worlde Café’. Owned and run by Aunty Vi - a true local legend, with a café menu unchanged for over 70 years – perhaps the best Welsh Rarebit to be found anywhere and lovely cakes too! 
  • There is also a a pub, St Govans’s Inn (good bar food) and 2 miles to the south, nestled between the steep cliffs of the south Pembrokeshire coastline is St Govan’s Chapel which is free to visit, although the only access is down steep steps carved into the side of the cliff. Count the number of steps down – tradition has it that it will be a different count on the return climb!

Tenby

  • This is truly the jewel in South Pembrokeshire’s coastline with its 3 blue flag beaches, interesting gift, craft and bric a brac shops, restaurants, pubs and Tudor Merchants House (N.T.) – a fascinating glimpse into times gone by.  Book a boat trip from its picturesque harbour  to the famous monastic island of Caldy – a truly lovely relaxing day out for all the family.
Family Fun
  • Discover a wealth of family attractions including Manor Wildlife Park, Blue Lagoon Water Park, the Dinosaur Park, Folly Farm, Overhang climbing wall and so many more.

Enjoy year round breaks in this luxurious home with fabulous views above the Haven Waterway, Pembrokeshire.
