About Sally Kinnear
Love the outdoors and Pembrokeshire life in general. Live 7 miles away from Shute Cottage with our family and farm animals. We think that we know the area well so any questions just get in touch :)
Sally Kinnear purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Sally Kinnear chose Tenby
Shute Cottage is in the most superb position and came up for sale when the timing was right. After many discussions with the National Park Jim set to work and added a light, spacious kitchen / dining area and big bedroom (with bathroom) and renovating the old part so that it would be warm, dry and very comfortable. The original dwelling probably dates back to C11th with a stone vaulted ceiling and a later addition of a round Flemish chimney. An engineered stone stream now drains the area beautifully and keeps Shute's water shute flowing.
What makes this Cottage unique
So convenient to get everywhere but also a feeling of space. The gravelled drive at the front holds loads of cars; banks, willow trees & garden all around lets children (& grown ups) play or simply move the garden furniture to sun or shade, cool breeze or shelter. Carry picnics, surf boards, kayaks, push sailing boats, down to the beach. Set a challenge of land v water..first to get to Stackpole Quay via the coast path or water gets an icecream!! Adrenaline junkies; don't forget to jump in afterwards (if the tide is in). Fresh strawberries and asparagus are a must from Springfields, artisan bread from Lamphey bakery (shuts at 1pm) is amazing and the new Nash Farm shop is delicious. Come back for a hot bath or shower, light a fire or bbq and chat through the day's highlights
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Walk slowly to the beach in 2 minutes or march out the flat, easy walk in less than 1 minute. Carrying surf boards, boogie boards, Thermos flasks, picnics, buckets for the rock pools and plenty of sun cream is usually easier if you have a beach kayak to use as a 'pack horse' with 2 helpers at either end!
Besides Manorbier beach which is popular with both surfers and families there are a few other 'secret' beaches along the coast path just waiting to be discovered.
Shute Cottage by car is around 1hr 45mins from Severn Bridge via M4.

They need their own bedding and a throw for the sofa in the kitchen area.
It is fantastic walking onto the beach and the coast path. An outside tap or in the fresh stream washes off the sand and mud brilliantly.
