Full Description

Approached down narrow country lanes, Rosemoor is hidden in an lovely valley in the far south west of Pembrokeshire, within walking distance (just 2 miles) of St. Bride’s Bay.
Formerly the seat of a large Victorian country estate, Rosemoor sits on a hill side, overlooking its own lake and woodlands, in the tiny hamlet of Walwyn’s Castle, the few remains of which are within our 35-acre grounds. At Rosemoor you will find

• spacious, comfortable, well-appointed, yet reasonably priced cottages.
• a perfect base to explore Pembrokeshire’s many lovely beaches, the Coast Path and the islands, as well as its many places of interest.
• large grounds with safe (partly walled) gardens and an attractive playground.
• stunning views of the countryside around you: a true chance to experience the peace and quiet for which Pembrokeshire is renowned.
• a nature lovers’ paradise on your doorstep: the Rosemoor Nature Reserve with its 5-acre lake boasts badgers, otters, orchids, other wild flowers and many species of birds.

We are popular with walkers, birdwatchers and naturalists alike. We have a sound environmental way of running our business. All cottages have central heating, fuelled via our dedicated biomass boiler. The majority also have a woodburner; although not necessary for comfort they are especially popular in Autumn and Winter (the best telly there is!).

Six of our nine cottages accept pets, and we provide a welcome dog surprise when you arrive. Our own Jack Russell Rosie loves the freedom of the beaches and the many public footpaths surrounding us – we are sure yours will do too.

Your accommodation comes fully equipped, with your beds made. There is a pay-phone and laundry on site, as well as a WiFi hotspot. We have a choice of delicious home cooked meals available for a really carefree holiday.

Should you nevertheless want to go out for a meal, there are good pubs within a 5 mile radius of us, many of which on the coast.
We live on site so we can usually deal with any eventuality promptly. Having lived at Rosemoor since 1998, we are a good source of information about all kinds of things Pembrokeshire.

Our own dedicated website ( gives comprehensive information about all our cottages, up-to-date availability and secure booking facilities. All the information you need and lots of pictures of our cottages, the area and the things you can do, can be found on there.

Historical Connection

Rosemoor was built in 1842 and its original outbuildings are converted to holiday cottages. The Summers family that build Rosemoor had the lease for Ramsey and Skomer and it is said that they made their fortune by smuggling brandy during the Napoleonic Wars.

Part of the Rosemoor estate is an official ancient (CADW) monument: the remnants of an Iron Age Fort with a Norman Castle superimposed.
