Surrounded by the UK's only National Coastal Park and just a few hundred yards from one of Pembrokeshire's finest sandy beaches, sits the Bosun's Chalet, a cosy two bedroomed, mid terraced retreat. In a peaceful location on a purpose built site of holiday homes, it benefits not only from the beautiful crescent shaped sandy bay on the doorstep but a child friendly, dog free, well maintained environment, ideal for play time freedom. The chalet's open plan layout offers well designed and well equipped family accommodation with a tasteful, coastal themed decor. For feasting on the catch of the day, garden dining furniture can be placed to the front or rear of the property to benefit from the fresh coastal air. The Longhouse bar/restaurant, at the entrance to the site, offers an ideal spot for refreshing and refuelling after days of surfing, fishing, co-steering or just lazing on the golden sands. The Longhouse also stocks a range of food and during high season daily newspapers. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes directly in front of the site and the Coastal Cruiser bus service links this idyllic bay to one coastal gem after another.

About the local area

Many coastal path walkers claim the six and a half miles between Freshwater East and Broadhaven South to be the most spectacular of the entire 186 mile path. Fantastic contorted cliffs, coves and blowholes line the route, while the song of seabirds overhead and sightings of seals on the rocks below, remind you of the true inhabitants of this very special place. As you drop down the cliff path onto Barafundle Bay, voted by The Times to be one of the top ten beaches in the world (approximately a 4  mile amble from The Bosun's Chalet) it's easy to appreciate why The National Geographic Magazine claimed Pembrokeshire to offer, the second best coastal destination in the entire world. This dune backed beach of white sand, turquoise sea and caves that beckon exploration really is exquisite. Memorable experiences abound in this corner of Pembrokeshire. A meander through the 100 acres of the breathtakingly beautiful, Stackpole Estate Lily Ponds and onto unspoilt white sands of Broadhaven South offers an incredible indulgence in natural beauty. A short walk west of this stunning beach brings you to the extraordinary sight of St Govan's tiny stone chapel, in a cleft, squeezed between sheer rocky cliffs, while a step or two further along the coast rewards you with The Green Bridge of Wales, a natural limestone arch, which with waves crashing around it, is truly a spectacular sight. Just 4.5 miles from The Bosun's Chalet, the magnificent Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII, lies waiting to be explored. With a packed annual events diary of reenactments, story telling, falconry etc, this medieval relic of tunnels and turrets, buzzes with activity and remains very much, at the heart of this historic town. Pembroke offers cafes, galleries, pubs, restaurants and an intriguing blend of unique independent shops. Mid July sees the annual Pembroke Festival, with a packed programme of events, from bands playing on the South Quay to firework displays from the castle ramparts. While there's so much to see and do nearby, the rest of Pembrokeshire, such a beautiful county, with a wealth of tourist attractions can't be ignored. Theme parks, more incredible beaches, nature reserves, gardens, zoos and even a vineyard and a chocolate factory can all be accessed within a half hour's drive of the Bosun's Chalet. The medieval walled town of Tenby with its stunning beaches and timeless appeal is only 12 miles away; while St Davids, the UK's smallest city is just a 28 mile trip through the county. There really is so much on offer in Pembrokeshire and with comfort and convenience, the Bosun's Chalet provides a great base from which to do and see it all.
