About Hop Garden Cottage
Beautiful Hop Garden Cottage is a welcome addition to our portfolio - a hidden gem in a romantic setting.

  • Hidden down a quiet country lane on the site of an historic Manor house dating back to the 15th Century, this is also the place where Dick Francis, legendary jockey and crime writer, first learnt to ride horses!
  • This is a pretty cottage looking towards Beggars Reach, Cosheston and the beautifully green Lawrenny Woods.
  • Steeped in history, the Manor was valued at half a knight’s fee in the times of the Percival family. Hop Garden Cottage has been lovingly restored and converted to a very high standard with underfloor heating, beautiful flagstone floors, solid oak doors and a welcoming wood burner for warm and cosy evenings in.
  • The open plan living arrangement has a range cooker and butler sink, a well-equipped kitchen with Corian work surfaces - all of which makes preparing holiday meals a joy.
  • The two bedrooms with estuary views are comfortably furnished - with excellent new mattresses.
  • On your doorstep there are many glorious countryside and estuary walks and fabulous wildlife and a huge variety of birds.
  •  Just a mile away there is easy access to the estuary for launching boats and kayaks.
  • Narberth is 20 minutes away with an array of restaurants, cafes, boutique shops and galleries and the golden sandy beaches of Tenby and Saundersfoot are also nearby.
  • Perfect at any time of the year, the incredibly peaceful location and cosy interiors make this a unique and very special holiday hideaway.

Narberth – bustling market town with wonderful restaurants

  • You can easily while away a day or two in the small town of Narberth - voted one of the Top 10 High streets in the UK - with its boutique shops, galleries, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants.
  • Narberth Museum is well worth a visit, looking at Narberth’s long and interesting history. Treat yourself at the museum’s cafe and bookshop.
  • Among the must-try eateries in Narberth is the ever popular, Ultracomida - a stylish, deli and tapas bar on the High Street. It is extremely busy and you may have to queue to get a seat at one of the few shared large tables...but it's well worth it.

It boasts a spacious beer garden with splendid views over the water towards Carew Castle and serves freshly prepared food and fine ales. The multi-award winning Quayside Tearoom enjoys a unique setting on the point at Lawrenny Quay offering local produce including lobster and crab - a great place to watch the yachts go by . 

Cresswell Quay

  • A beautifully unspoilt and sleepy hamlet on the banks of the Cresswell River, roughly 4 miles away from the local town of Pembroke. The wildlife along this tidal river is a birdwatcher's paradise, and from Cresswell Quay you can take a peaceful stroll through ancient oak woodland and down along the river bank.

Why you love Hop Garden Cottage
What a simply wonderful, heavenly time we've all had. So peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful frosty mornings, sunshine, rain, wind, log fires, dog walks, fish and chips. We've all enjoyed it so much. Thank you and thanks so much for looking after us so well.
Harry, Phoebe and baby Atticus and the dogs -
A wonderful weekend. A bass caught in the estuary and some lovely sea beet picked and cooked for dinner in the cosy cottage. Loved walking through the local woods and fields. Thank you.

Tony and Karen Campe and Paddy the dog
We are so sad to be leaving your lovely cottage. We've had a lovely time - feeling right at home in our/your superbly equipped base. Our little would dearly like to return - as would my wife and I - and we sincerely hope that we find a way to return again for some sunshine.
