The Longhouse is a traditional, stone, long barn, beautifully converted into a high quality holiday cottage just for two, set down a country lane outside the village of Llanteg. Step into the open plan living space with modern, fitted kitchen and comfortable sofas to relax on, French doors open to an enclosed paved patio and lawned garden. It is deceptively spacious and stylishly furnished with contemporary and traditional pieces which compliment the retained original features of exposed stone work and A frame beams. Uninterrupted rural views can be enjoyed from nearly every room. The study provides additional space to read, while the bedroom is a delightful retreat. Neighbouring The Corner, the owners home, the extensive shared garden has been cleverly divided with natural screening and landscaping to give each cottage its own individual space, ideal for sitting out on the patio and enjoying an al fresco meal on a summer’s evening.

Ideal for walkers, cyclists, bird and wildlife lovers, follow the no-through road from the cottage and take the footpath through the woodland down to Amroth beach where you can enjoy refreshments as there are several pubs, restaurants and cafes before the walk home. Explore the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path starting with the quieter beach of Marros which neighbours Amroth and travel West along the coast to Wiseman's Bridge and on to Saundersfoot and Tenby.

Beaches near The Longhouse

Amroth
Amroth is a charming coastal village where time seems to have stood still. The beach is punctuated by a series of groynes that help protect the village from winter storms and rough seas. This beach and village mark the easterly end of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which winds its way for 186 miles past all the coves, beaches and cliffs of the Pembrokeshire National Park. Parking is good in the village and along the seafront.
Tenby North Beach consists of a sweep of golden sand, with occasional rocks dotting the beach, including the prominent Goscar Rock. The harbour and castle are at the southern end of the beach which is well sheltered from the prevailing winds. North beach is very popular with families with plenty of space for beach games. Dog restrictions are put in place between 1st May and 30th September, banning dogs from North Beach. 
The mile long stretch of flat, golden sand that is Tenby South Beach is a firm favourite with holidaymakers. Plenty of space for a game of beach cricket or football as well as chasing a Frisbee! The beach is also popular with water sports enthusiasts as it is more exposed than Tenby North beach, it offers better surfing, windsurfing and kite-surfing conditions. Dog restrictions apply below the cliffs, east of the beach car park, between the 1st May and 30th September.
Penally
Penally beach is a large sandy beach, at the far end of Tenby's South Beach. The beach gives direct access to Coastal Path, taking you up to Giltar Point where the path continues towards Lydstep and beyond. Access to the beach is via a pathway from the car park near the train station, through the golf course and dunes. There are fantastic views of Caldey Island from Penally.
Priory Bay beach is a gorgeous beach on Caldey Island. Access to the island is by boat from either Tenby Harbour or Castle beach depending on the tides. The boats run between Easter and the end of October - Monday to Friday and Saturday during June, July, August, however the island is closed on Sunday. Its is a wonderful beach for families with plenty of space to run around, build sand castles and the perfect spot for a picnic. Dogs are welcomed on the island but must be kept on leads at all times. 
Lydstep Haven is a picturesque village with a sand and shingle beach, located just over 3 miles from Tenby on the Pembrokeshire coast. It is very popular with swimmers and water sports enthusiasts and there is a great view of Caldey Island from the beach.
Skrinkle Haven beach is a sandy/shingly cove between Old Castle Head and Lydstep Point, 1 mile south-east of Manorbier village. Skrinkle Haven is accessed via its neighbour, Church Doors which is a little cove with two high-arched caves in the cliffs which resemble the doors of a church. The two coves are separated by a tall thin limestone ridge. At low tide it is possible to walk around the ridge, but only for a short period of time. There is also a narrow cave linking the two coves - care is needed as the cave is slippery and one end is in a rock pool. Access to Church Doors is via 140 metal steps.
Manorbier
One of the prettiest beaches in Pembrokeshire, overlooked by the impressive medieval Manorbier Castle and the 12th century church. The beach itself is sandy, with rocks and rockpools at either end and a pebble bank along the high tide mark, and is very popular with surfers. It is home to a stone cromlech known as the King's Quoit. To find it, follow the signs from the A4139 onto the B4585. Parking is available in a National Trust Car Park above the beach and along the low cliff at the northern end of the beach. Toilets can be found in the large car park and shops and a pub in the village.
Freshwater East
Swanlake Bay is shingle beach, accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path situated between Manorbier and Freshwater East. At low tide the golden sand and rock pools are revealed making Swanlake Bay beach worth the trip - it has been one of Pembrokeshire best kept secrets as even during the Summer months you can still find most of the beach to yourself.
Llansteffan
Llansteffan (sometimes spelt Llanstephan) is a long sandy beach against the River Towy, situated just across the water from Ferryside. Car Parking is currently free, but there are talks of implementing parking charges. Dogs are welcome onto the beach during the winter months providing they are kept on leads, however restrictions are then put in place from 1st May to the 30th September forbidding dogs on this beach. Technically, this is a tidal estuary rather than a beach, and so it is recommended to supervise children bathing at all times due to the strong currents in the water.
