Swallows was tastefully converted from a former farm building that is adjacent to our own home. It has oak woodwork throughout, is centrally heated, and is furnished and equipped to a high standard. It has three good-sized bedrooms, two upstairs sharing a bathroom and one downstairs with an en-suite shower room. There is a good-sized kitchen and large loung-diner downstairs, and it also benefits from a separate utility/wc.

We are less than 1.5 miles from the the unspoilt coastal village of Manorbier, with its lovely sheltered beach, 12th century castle, attractive church, villageshop/post office, garage, tea-room, hotel, and public house. The Pembrokeshire coastal path runs through the bay and provides some magnificent coastal walks. In addition numerous sandy beaches and the towns of Tenby and Pembroke are just a short drive away.
