About Railway Cottage

The location of this idyllic cottage hosts a range of activities for all tastes, boating, kayaking, walking, the world renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path, glorious sandy beaches and local attractions in an area speckled with picturesque towns and villages within a short drive along the waterway and beyond to the coast.

  • Take a stroll from the cottage to the cafes and recommended eateries on the local marina, or to the local shop for your newspaper and essentials, nearby.
  • You will realise what a hidden gem Railway Cottage is the minute you arrive. The waterway views are as enthralling as the charm of the cottage itself.
  • Step inside to a world far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Relax, recharge and unwind in this calming and peaceful ambience, thick stone walls steeped in history combined with every luxury for the perfect get-away.
  • Light the wood burner on chillier evenings, soothing your soul in its warming glow, chatting together over a drink or good movie at the end of the day.
  • The impressive open plan well-equipped kitchen offers a space in which holiday cooking is a joy, but with so many good eateries along the river, cooking isn't a must in this cottage.
  • Climb the feature oak staircase to three beautifully presented luxurious bedrooms, enjoying high-quality furnishings and bed linen, all rooms adorned with tasteful accessories, creating the ideal restful retreat, in the calming, peaceful cottage atmosphere.
  • The cottage benefits from two superior quality bathrooms. The family bathroom is located on the first floor, with a further shower room on the ground floor, ideal after a beach day or an afternoon kayaking on the river.
  • Spend time relaxing in the attractive, secluded gardens or take breakfast on the sunny patio with a glorious view over the meandering waterway. A perfect spot to dine alfresco under the starry skies on a calm summer's evening.
  • Regardless of the season, Railway Cottage offers a destination for a very memorable, happy holiday. The chances are you will want to return.
  • As well as being a short walk from the marina, just a short drive alongside the river are two good pubs, The Jolly Sailor at Burton and The Ferry Inn at Llanstadwel. South of the county, over the Cleddau Bridge are Pembroke, with its fine castle and beyond are the popular seaside towns of Tenby And Saundersfoot.

What a lovely cottage !It is spacious, yet cosy, with a homely feel and the beds are incredibly comfortable. Neyland proved to be a great position for visiting quite a few places. We've had a great week - thank you!

So glad we chose this cottage, as it is gorgeous, well equipped and comfortable.We are regular visitors to West Wales and our first to Neyland. Although the weather had not always been in our favour, it did not stop us from visiting Llangrannog, St Davids, Solva, Tenby and Saundersfoot.We made the most of our time here - would have loved to have used the log burner but not quite cold enough !! Maybe next time ..Thank you for the welcome pack.

We have had a great week at Railway Cottage, so peaceful and relaxing. The cottage is spacious and clean, with lovely waterway views.Mark & Sharon the owners have thought of everything and more ...We have had mixed weather, but at every opportunity made use of the top terrace in the stunning picturesque garden with beautiful mature plants, overlooking the estuary. A perfect getaway from the 'hustle and bustle' of modern day life, to wind down and relax, but within easy reach of places of interest, including beaches and shops.We fully recommend this cottage and location.
