A delightful cottage in the 1930's style but with every mod con. Peaceful, lovely location, It suited all our needs as our family includes a disabled adult, a toddler and a dog.

Immaculate both inside and outside. Very welcoming accommodation, really well equipped. The veranda and garden were a joy and beautifully maintained as was the whole property.

From the Owner: We are sorry that your stay at the Boathouse was "average". This is a disappointing comment especially after we have had most of the downstairs professionally redecorated and freshened up. We love the Boathouse and try hard to make it a delightful place to stay for a holiday. The previous guests commented on feefo, "beautifully decorated and well maintained. Well stocked with every detail, lovely china, high standard of equipment from bedding to towels and kitchen appliances. We stayed with adult children and 2 dogs and we all thought it was idyllic". We feel that these comments are more representative of our guests' experiences of the Boathouse.

The most perfect holiday for all of us; 3 generations, 14-86 years. We have fallen in love with The Boathouse and Manorbier. We hope to be back one day very soon.

Their motto is Great food, Great service, Great Times! Tasty food and friendly service is at the heart of our restaurant.

Caldey Island Lighthouse and Monastery

  • Book your boat trip on the slipway of Tenby Harbour. The island has been home to Cistercian monks for over a thousand years. They produce perfume, shortbread and chocolate all on sale in the island shop. Relax on Priory Bay, one of the beautiful beaches, stroll the lovely countryside and visit part of the Grade II listed Abbey. A day to remember

Presipe, Freshwater East & West and Barafundle beaches

  • Walk the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and discover secluded bays including nearby Presipe (reached via steps & a winding path) - beautiful fine sand, rocks and stacks - the wide sweeping crescent sands of Freshwater East and Barafundle, one of Pembrokeshire's most beautiful beaches.

St Govans Head near pet friendly Manorbier coastal holiday cottage

  • St Govans Point is the most southerly point on the Pembrokeshire coast. St Govans Head has some of the finest examples of cliff forms in Britain. Do make your way down the long flight of stone steps to St Govan's tiny 6th C Chapel perched precariously at the bottom of the cliffs. Reputedly a hermitage built by a monk after his miraculous escape from pirates.

Many are dog friendly all year round but in restricted areas on some during the summer months. See our local holiday guide.
