The Beach Shack Beachy Chic! Wifi and Cotton Bedding all Included in the Cost

Family-friendly chalet in Pembroke
CORONAVIRUS enhanced cleaning protocol. Enhanced cleaning protocol in place. Using bleach and disinfectant. Check in and out with no person contact, key safe cleaned between visitors departing and next visitors arrival. 5 hour time delay between visitors to enable deep cleaning to take place, and for property to be thoroughly aired. The Beach Shack as we affectionately call it ( although the photos attached, prove it bears no resemblance to any sort of shack! ) is a two bedroom property uncluttered, contemporary and totally refurbished that comfortably sleeps 4 people. Unlike similar local properties we provide freshly laundered cotton bed linen, for your comfort included in the cost. Upstairs is one double bedroom and one bedroom with twin bunks.The separate bathroom has an electric shower, a toilet and washbasin with built in storage underneath. Downstairs is an open plan lounge dining and kitchen area, complete with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, combination microwave oven , electric oven and hob, Iron and ironing board A 37 inch wall mounted TV, DVD player and freesat box are available with free hi speed Wi-Fi. We include this free service in the booking price unlike some other chalets, to avoid any unpleasant extra holiday costs to our visitors. A selection of Kids games are available inside, as well as beach buckets, spades etc in the outside storage box. The chalet is located in the Pembrokeshire National Park, It is situated on the flat, so access is easy and it is set in a lovely position receiving the sun in the front all morning and then all afternoon in the back. There are french doors at the back of the chalet,and in the afternoon it is lovely to sit outside on the lawn, where there is nothing but the sound of cows quietly mooing in the distance far away in the fields to disturb your peace. There is ample parking, although the chalet's own designated parking space is clearly signposted just outside and slightly to the left of the front door when facing it. We have made the chalet child friendly by providing a travel cot, high chair and stair gate.The comfortable and practical cream leather sofas are also child friendly and easy to wipe if any spills should occur from little ones. We provide bed linen and tea towels for the chalet. Please pack towels and beach towels as well if you are intending to visit the beach. As it is literally a couple of minutes walk away, why wouldn't you? Finally, although this is in a holiday park, in the 20 years we have owned it we are always impressed by how respectful holiday makers are of noise in the late evening and night. Freshwater beach is a large expanse of golden sand backed by the sand dunes of Freshwater Nature Reserve, it also has many interesting rock pools at either end. The beach has level access and on site toilets. For the active beach visitors there is a stream which runs at its southern side, ideal for small children to play in, surfing is a popular activity here as well. However for those who just like to watch, the slipway on the beach with the boat traffic is always interesting. The neighborhood is really delightful. The newly refurbished “Longhouse” is now open on site and provides food and entertainment for holidaymakers on site. There is a small shop, water sports rental company, amusement arcade and pool tables inside. There is also the local Freshwater Inn at the top of a hill (a great cardio-vascular walk away!) with breathtakingly beautiful panoramic views of the bay, and outside seating areas to enjoy the views to their best advantage. In Pembroke town centre there are many interesting craft shops and plenty of places to see including the renowned Pembroke castle, and restaurants/cafe's to eat in. For us personally, it is the Coastal path and breathtaking scenery that are the main attractions of this area and some local walks include Swanlake Bay and the spectacular Barafundle beach. These are accessible on foot from the chalet without the need for a car journey. If you are very keen walkers, you will be happy to do these. However there are many maps of area walks in the chalet to assist walkers of all abilities.

Lovely relaxing break
We've recently returned from The Beach Shack, and what a lovely stay we had. After a long 5 hour journey we arrived at the beach shack and were pleasantly surprised by what greeted us. (Beware! make sure you have hard copies of the instructions of how to get into the property, i am normally super organised, but this time for some reason i decided not to print paper versions of the booking instructions, and we had a little anxious moment when we couldn't get the code to open the key safe as i could get no internet signal or phone signal whatsoever - so don't make the same mistake as me.) Once we got past this though, we were in and soon settled. The property was spotlessly clean, beds were super comfy, the kitchen was well equipped, and the location is spot on. You are literally a couple of minutes walk to the beach, and what a beautiful beach it is. The site is well maintained, and it's nice that it's dog free. The had a drink in the Longhouse, but not food although the food that we saw being served looked lovely. You are a little isolated, so we made sure we took provisions with us, the nearest shop is probably a 5 minute drive away and even then it's just a garage/petrol station. We didn't use it, so i can't really comment on what sort of things you could get from there, but i'd imagine it would stock the basics. We did one trip to Aldi in Pembroke which probably took about 15/20 minutes to get to. We also did notice that people were having Asda deliveries whilst we were there so i guess this is also an option. All in all, we had a lovely relaxing stay, Liz was a very helpful host, and very knowledgeable about the local area and offered tips of where to visit. As we have family in the area, it is somewhere that we would definitely return to in the future.

Lovely location 2 min away from sandy beach.
We have stayed at the challet 25.07-01.08 2020.Great hosts, great communication easy acces to the property.great location - 2 min away from lovely sandy beach. Close to Pembroke castle, Tenby , st.Govan's head, Lamphey Bishop Palace and many lovely beaches in surrounding areas. The weather didn't spoil us( still few sunny hot days on the beach) but we had plenty thing to do with our two daughters.The bar at fresh water park is very handy under current circumstances ( covid-19). The challet offers almost everything we needed, it was clean which was important for us, and cosy. I loved fresh cotton bedding. Would definitely come back but a week is not enough.I recommend to anyone
