Within 200 yards of the delightful beach at the Parrog in Newport, this simple and un-fussy, secluded property makes an ideal base for a relaxing holiday in north Pembrokeshire. There are numerous shops, craft shops, restaurants and pubs within walking distance as well as direct access to the Coastal Path. At low tide you can walk across the Estuary to the Traeth Mawr (Newport Sands) with its extensive silver sands and patrolled swimming area. Head west along the coast path at low tide to discover two lesser known small beaches at Bettws and Cwm - both great for rock pooling and only a 5 minute walk from the property. A favourite pursuit with local children is to catch crabs from the sea wall on the Parrog at high tide using a string and bacon as bait.

Retreat is a nice little holiday venue, close to the beach, but no parking and an overgrown front and rear garden somewhat inhibit your enjoyment. The spiral staircase to the top floor, in my opinion, is not ideal for younger children, otherwise it is situated...More
