The Details...

Elegant and pretty, but with plenty of old world warmth and charm, The Watch House is a beautiful 19th Century building that has been lovingly refurbished and transformed into a holiday home. Situated in the fabulous Welsh county of Pembrokeshire, The Watch House has spectacular views of the River Teifi. Step outside onto your decking and gaze out at the water with your morning coffee and indulge in the peace and serenity of nature. This unique holiday home was originally the Customs and Excise Watch House, which was built around 1850, and it now comfortably sleeps seven people in four bedrooms.

Whilst you could be forgiven for never wanting to leave the lovely riverside terrace, once you step inside, this cosy and comfy holiday home will be sure to please. This historic building has warm wooden floors, pristine white walls and everything you could want for a fantastic Welsh countryside escape. Sink into the comfy sofas and gaze out the window, or watch movies together as a family on the flat screen TV. The dining space can easily seat eight, and the fully functional kitchen has everything you could want to cook up a storm, including a gas cooker and hob, a fridge freezer and even a dishwasher meaning you don’t have to argue over who does the dishes. The cosy bedrooms are all upstairs and there’s one king size en suite room, one double, one twin and one single room. There are also two bathrooms, one upstairs and one down, as well as the en suite, meaning you can avoid those frustrating morning queues for the shower.

This incredibly riverside property sits in the peaceful and welcoming village of St Dogmeals, and is less than five minute’s drive from Poppit Sands beach. If you venture slightly further afield you’ll be blown away by the number of breathtaking unspoilt beaches on the North Pembrokeshire coast. The house is also perfectly located for those of you who wish to explore the magical Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. If you enjoy eating out then you’ll be pleased to know that there are three village pubs nearby, the nearest of which - The Ferry Inn - serves up scrummy food. There is also a superb fish and chip shop called Bowens in the village that you simply must try out.
