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.

Thank you for the lovely flowers and honey on arrival. We have been enchanted by this lovely and tranquil cottage and position over the estuary. After many years since visiting this area we have rediscovered its beauty, especially with such fine weather this week. It has been a joy!

What a delightful and tranquil spot after living on a busy road it is absolute bliss. Cottage very well equipped and clean. Our only complaint was that the television didn’t seem to like us!! Daisy paid us several visits and our own dog seemed most surprised when she just walked in! Thank you for the marmalade which we shall take home to enjoy. The weather has been brilliant and to be able to sit outside, admire the view and no traffic whizzing past, wonderful. Our visit to Angle well worthwhile, also the small town of Narberth where there really are some lovely little shops. Thank you for a lovely stay and a pleasure to meet you both.

We have really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is lovely and makes a great base for exploring the area, in particular appreciated being able to take walks from the front door – up to Landshipping and down to Lawrenny. Recommend a trip round to Picton Castle on the west side. We visited the owl garden and had a “private flying experience” – amazing!

Walked on too many unspoilt beaches, saw too many lovely places, ate too much good food, drank too much wine, laughed too loudly … isn’t that what a holiday should be? Thanks we had a lovely stay!

A lovely stay - a lovely place with sweet dogs and really kind people. We thought the marmalade was delicious and the beaches were gorgeous! We're hoping to return for another stay because Suki will miss Daisy and Fen a lot!! Love the El Khazens.

  • 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 .
