Lark View Holiday Cottage in Bosherston
Lark View is a cosy and carefully converted single storey stone barn, one of five conversions overlooking the large communal lawn which is shared between the cottages and is an ideal place for children to play freely. The open plan living space has a vaulted ceiling with exposed A frame beams and wooden floors. Comfortably furnished with a contemporary look and cosy leather sofas, it makes an ideal retreat. A door opens from the modern fitted kitchen area to a covered porchway leading to the utility room and sheltered, own enclosed rear garden, a lovely spot to relax on warm summer evenings and enjoy a barbecue. A further farm fenced lawn with lovely rural views gives plenty of space for children to play.
An ideal Pembrokeshire holiday being less than 1.5 miles from glorious Broadhaven South beach and Bosherstons St Govan''s Inn, Ye Olde Tea Shoppe and lily ponds, and the attractions of Stack Rocks and St Govan's tiny chapel. Other beaches nearby that should not be missed include Barafundle, Swanlake and Freshwater West, popular with surfers and watersport enthusiasts, all just waiting to be explored. An excellent haven for guests who love the countryside and wish to explore some lesser known parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, especially Castlemartin Range where special access is seasonly granted for walkers and where some walks have rarely been trodden.
In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Please note that this property is located close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The border of the range is approx 300m away. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8 km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan's Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.

Our second visit to Carew FArm, Lark View is a lovely cottage. Enjoyed the walk from Bosherston via Barafundle beach to Stackpole Quay for lunch - highly recommended! Weather could have been hotter but at least not too much rain.
