The weather wasn’t always kind but the house, area, beach were the best… I can honestly say we do not want to go home! We’ll be back. Thank you.

Had a fabulous week here: weather couldn’t have been better. Fab access to beach, lovely cottage, our best location yet in the 3 years we have been coming to Wales on our hols. Couldn’t recommend it enough. House very clean with lots of day to day provisions. Thank you.

Fabulous views, such a relaxed week spent here. Weather has been beautiful with most meals eaten outside in evening sunshine. Our first time in Pembrokeshire but will happily return and recommend this house to friends.

We had another lovely week in Wiseman's Bridge. The house was even more attractive and comfortable than before, with updated facilities and furnishings, but all done with a sensitive touch to preserve the original 1930's feel.We particularly enjoyed the fabulous view from the new terrace, which, had the weather been against us, we could also have enjoyed from the new garden room. Looking forward to our next visit already!

Lovely home, garden and location. The view is wonderful and the cottage had everything to make an enjoyable stay at monkstone view. Quiet location and only a short walk down to the beach. Lovely walk into Saundersfoot and a good base for exploring Pembrokeshire. We really enjoyed our stay.

Having been here a couple of times before, we know that this is a wonderful location and the style of the house, i.e. 30's. Which is fine, but we feel it is due for a bit of a makeover. The wallpaper is coming off the wall in the sitting room and the TV could be upgraded somewhat. Not everybody goes out in the evening .. especially since the view is superb just sitting there peacefully .. so you need entertainment in the house. The hut is great too but, again, the TV was a bit of a mystery to the older person!! We got there in the end but detailed instructions would be of help. The bedrooms were all fine and don't see how you can increase the worksurface in the kitchen. The freezer room is quaint ... This is nit-picking as your office was great, the owners were very helpful in reducing the fee as we had to get out on the Saturday re. the Ironman contest, but as I said above, experience of renting shows that many places these days have much improved their standards - and their prices!! - but, there you go .. Thanks.

Fabulous location with amazing views. Terrace and table tennis were great. Really like the traditional 1930’s style. However, the kitchen was not well set up for catering for 8 adults.

A trusted customer - 20th August 2018

It was a little tricky to find because the property name at the gate is "Windy Ridge" (which is also repeated in all the documentation in the house). So we were a bit concerned as to whether we were in the right place! So I think that your joining instructions should warn people about this to reassure them. The house itself was lovely and had everything we needed - as well as enjoying a truly splendid position overlooking the sea. The only very small suggestion I could make by way of an improvement is to find some way of securing the lid of the metal coal store outside the door. As on our last night we experienced winds of 50 mph, which caused the lid to fly up and then crash down with very considerable force about every 30 seconds throughout the night - rendering sleep almost impossible - and making the long drive home a nightmare due to the lack of sleep! However, that apart we had a truly lovely holiday - but before re-booking it (as we may well do) we would want to know that the issue with the coal store has been dealt with successfully.

About the Area

Wiseman's Bridge Beach

  • Wiseman's Bridge Beach -  pet friendly all year round -  was the scene for rehearsals for the 'D Day' Landings and is an ideal family playground with rocks to clamber over and pools left by the receding tide to fish in. The remains of a 5000 year old forest can still be found in the stream that flows down to the sea.
Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
  • The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path (part of the All Wales Path) runs through the Bay with its glorious walking and  South Pembrokeshire's beautiful beaches are all nearby - Saundersfoot, Amroth and the Jewel of Pembrokeshire, Georgian Tenby.
The Wiseman's Bridge Dramway
  • Wiseman's Bridge is linked to Saundersfoot by an old 'dramway' once used to carry coal to Saundersfoot Harbour.  Recently resurfaced this is an ideal off road cycle route that passes through 3 old railway tunnels and also heads inland through Pleasant Valley.

 Saundersfoot Village

  • Pretty, bustling Saundersfoot has 3 lovely beaches, harbour, shops, pubs, gallery, a wonderful old fashioned sweet shop, 'Chobbles', good sea food restaurants, and gifts shops including 'Walk on Water' for leisure wear and souvenirs.

Amroth &  Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • Amroth, the start (or end) of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, is a small seaside village with a beach (lots of Blue Flag awards), popular with families, that stretches the whole length of the village. It can be reached along the beach at low tide, passing old coal and iron workings, or on the cliff-top coast path which is also a cycle route. Occasionally, when there is a very low tide, ancient tree stumps can be seen poking through the sand.  
  • Amroth has a selection of places to eat as well as three pubs - the furthest marking the Pembrokeshire/Carmarthenshire border.

Colby Gardens (NT)

  • Away from the sea Colby Gardens (NT) is in a tranquil, secluded valley.  This beautiful woodland garden has a fantastic collection of rhododendrons and peaceful woodland walks.
  • The Bothy Tea Room and Restaurant serves mouth-watering home made food and the National Trust Gift Shop with Gallery has lots of Pembrokeshire arts and crafts for sale.

Salt Cellar Restaurant, Bar and Terrace, Tenby

  • Located on the lower ground floor of the Atlantic Hotel on The Esplanade overlooking Tenby's South Beach the Salt Cellar is an award winning coastal restaurant, bar and terrace run by a bunch of talented friends for you and your friends and family to enjoy. Their motto is “Great food, Great service, Great Times! Tasty food and friendly service is at the heart of our restaurant”.
Caldey Island Boat Trips
  • Boat trips leave regularly from Tenby Harbour to visit the tranquil island of Caldey just a few miles off shore. Enjoy the glorious sandy beach, quiet country lanes and browsing the island's shop for chocolate, perfume and shortbread made by the resident Cistercian monks. Caldey Priory is a Grade I listed building.

Family Fun

  • Oakwood theme park, the Blue Lagoon waterpark, multi award winning Folly Farm, the Manor Wildlife Park, Dinosaur Park, Tudor Merchant's House Tenby (NT), Carew Karting and The Overhang climbing wall are just some of the quality family attractions in south Pembrokeshire.
Day Trips
  • Britain's smallest city of St Davids in the north of the county, with its characterful streets full of independent boutiques, galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants and a magnificent Cathedral is well worth a visit. Combined with a few hours on Whitesands Beach 1.5 miles further on makes for a perfect day out.
The Preseli Hills
  • Explore the wild interior of Pembrokeshire. At 536 metres above sea level this is the highest landscape in the county and offers breath taking walks, stunning views, ancient relics, remote homesteads, micro breweries, lots of sheep and refreshments in the community owned historic Tafarn Sinc in the village of Rosebush.
Characterful bungalow in an enviable coastal location for fulfilling holidays in south Pembrokeshire at any time of the year.
