My wife and I saw Portclew House when Steve and Sarah first started work on it. They said they wanted to have a place of the highest standards possible. That was 13 years ago. They really succeeded and have kept up those standards over the years. Lovely, tastefully decorated rooms; always a friendly welcome and an amazing breakfast! We'll be... More

This is a delightful bed and breakfast house perched up on the edge of Freshwater East. It is on the road coming in from Lamphey and does not overlook the bay or the sea, although we discovered you can actually see the sea on the horizon looking south from a room at the front of the house if you peep...

Quite simply my family and I loved the place. Our room was spacious, the hosts were super friendly, the hotel itself was charming and quaint - what more could you ask for? Oh yes, good value too! Will certainly return and recommend. Also close to gorgeous beaches.

the hotel is great, the rooms are well kept, and the breakfast is quite generous and well cooked the couple (apologies i forget their name) who run the house are also very helpful and informative my only issue staying here was the distance from the beach and being without a vehicle i really should have stayed somewhere else.

This is a really very good quality & extremely comfortable B & B in a great location on the edge of Freshwater East. The whole accommodation has been superbly renovated with good size rooms including excellent furnishings. Very comfortable beds offering a great night's sleep. The breakfasts are full of local produce & sets you up perfectly for the day.... More

I stayed here for just one night. It was lovely. The family who run it were all very pleasant and very helpful. The room was spacious, clean and light. We were given good instructions as to where to visit, and how to find our way - which wasn't as easy in the dark coming home, but we made it eventually.

We stayed in the Coach House and the Dairy (four and three bedroomed self-catering accommodation). We had four adults and children ranging from 18 to 6. The accommodation is very high quality, comfortable, and well equipped, although not at the luxury end of the market. The self-catering cottages are set in the grounds of the main house which acts as... More

If you want a quiet & peaceful B&B on the south Pembroke coast Portclew House is ideal, it's close to one of Wales' best kept secrets Barafundle Bay plus other sandy beaches perfect for families. The bedrooms are large & airy with lovely views, the bed was comfortable, bathroom as you would expect and the breakfast nicely presented. Nice to... More

We have been to Portclew House on two occasions and have found both to be fantastic in terms of quality and location. The B&B is a short 15minute walk to the beach and to a fantastic little pub with excellent food. The overall ambiance is one of old Welsh charm and is perfectly run by a husband and wife team....

We spent a week in the Hen House cottage at Portclew after friends has raved about it for several years and continued to return again and again. What can i say, we had a fabulous week. The weather was lovely, as was the setting and the activities available locally for the kids. There are several pretty beaches within a shortish... More
