About Sally Kinnear
Love the Pembrokeshire outdoor lifestyle. Enjoy travelling to see new locations and meet people, cooking fresh produce, sports and horses are a passion too. We think that we know Pembrokeshire inside out and would be very happy to pass on any information, however you would rather discover the area peacefully for yourselves then you won't be disturbed. The main farmhouse, where we live is about 100m away at the bottom of the farmyard, there many stone buildings but only Stable Cottage has been converted into guest accommodation. New for this year is a romantic boutique retreat self contained Shepherds Hut tucked away in the top of the orchard, B&B is sometimes available in the farmhouse, guests use a front drive. Please enquire if you are a larger group.
Sally Kinnear purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Sally Kinnear chose Kilgetty
We just love the location, its rural but so well placed to access the whole area. After moving to Cardeeth we did up the farmhouse, Jim specialises in renovating and developing stone properties. The pretty stone barn at the top of the farm was perfect for converting into cottage. It was lovingly worked on and completed in 2003. This is a very scenic area. Walk to Carew, look in the castle & mill. Carew Inn does a great pub meal has live music and outside bbq's & a roaring fires in winter. Home made cakes with a cuppa at Juju's French Mill tea rooms are a must. The river estuary is full of wildlife, great for kayaking or paddle boards. Visit Pembroke where King Henry VII was born, Manorbier castle overlooking the beach, many more. There are many events on. Films, plays & shows in The Torch Theatre Lawrenny Arms, food by the river, Quay rooms in Lawrenny for lunches & teas, The famous Cresselly Arms, Cresswell Quay by the river. Tenby & Saundersfoot have award wining beaches, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Narberth has lovely independent shops and cafe culture.
What makes this Cottage unique
Known across the world for its legendary coastal scenery and protected by Britain’s only coastal National Park, Pembrokeshire is the perfect holiday destination. Golden sands backed by towering cliffs teeming with wildlife that are just as beautiful in summer was they are in winter. There is a huge choice of award winning golden sandy beaches to visit, the Stable Cottage in a central spot to reach so many of them. Head west to Barafundle again recently voted top 10 in the World, Freshwater West holds surf championships and always worth a visit, Cafe Mor is there through the summer (fab local 'street food'). Manorbier, Tenby and Saundersfoot are amongst the Blue flag awards winners and so many more magical spots to discover in between. There are many castles. Walk to Carew, an C11th Norman castle. Visit Pembroke where King Henry VII was born, Manorbier castle overlooking the beach, Llawhaden on the 'Landsker' line and many more. There are many events on in the county. Films, plays and shows at The Torch Theatre, Milford Haven. Festivals like Tenby Blues, The Really Wild Festival in St Davids, Big Retreat Wales in Lawrenny. Pembrokeshire County Show, Easter Monday Point-to-Point horse races in Lydstep, Martletwy Agricultural Show. Iron Man Wales and The Long Course Weekend have made this a mecca for triathlon lovers, we are on the bike route and have taken part in both. This is a brilliant base to go training from. Being a rural county there is great local produce available in local farm shops and farmer's markets. Tourist attractions like Heatherton Country Park, Oakwood Theme Park has the biggest wooden roller coaster in Europe, Manor House also known as Annas' Welsh Zoo, doing amazing things for saving the Black Rhino and Sumatran Tigres. Carew Karting, fast and furious. Tenby and Saundersfoot have award wining restaurants, pubs and cafes. A day trip to St Davids, the smallest city in Europe. Solva and Porthgain near there too. Skomer Island is a natural paradise

Very comfortable house in a great location. Highly recommended
A superb holiday from start to finish. Beautiful property in beautiful surroundings. Both Sally and Jim were really welcoming and made everything easy and relaxed. Has to be one of the best holidays we've had in years. Would return without hesitation. The location was excellent with everything we wanted within a 15-20min drive away. Local beaches are superb and there is a huge choice of walks in the local area; the coastline is stunning. The village, just a short walk, has a great pub with good food and atmosphere. Returning back to Cardeeth Farm and Stable Cottage everyday was the icing on the cake. Thank you Sally and Jim, loved every minute!
We LOVE having lovely families like yourselves staying here and great to see you make the most of exploring & enjoying the area. The kind words in your review are really much appreciated. We look forward to hopefully seeing you next time with very best wishes Jim, Sally, Tom Billy & Archie(!) PS if you're ever out on a big motorbike trip in this direction call in :D
Pretty, relaxing base
Very much enjoyed our stay : loved all the views from the windows and outdoor seating area (so peaceful). Great base to discover the Pembrokeshire coast. Lots of helpful information in the cottage. The little book became our bible. Ate twice at the local pub opposite Carew Castle, staff very friendly and good choice of menu. Thankyou 🤗�
Thank you to Sally for letting us stay in her lovely and we’ll set cottage, we had a fabulous week. Cottage is ideal for couples or small families and the various beaches of Pembrokeshire are within short drives. Brilliant and would highly recommend to anyone planning a holiday to the beautiful county of Pembrokeshire. Additionally our little dog Colin loved little Archie, we had Avery warm welcome from him. Would stay again!

Linda & Matt, it was great to meet you both and thanks very much for the kind review, it really means a lot.
Lovely break in Pembrokeshire
We had a lovely stay in this great little cottage in Pembrokeshire. The property is on a farm and our children loved visiting the cows and horses every day. The hosts were lovely and very welcoming and we would recommend the property!
Central position to explore the beautiful beaches, coastline, waterways, ancient castles, historic towns and tourist attractions that the area has to offer.
Although cars are useful in a rural area it is possible to leave it behind and arrive by bus to Carew, link from the local bus service to the coastal shuttle buses (the nearest is the coastal cruiser). Taxi company 1/2 mile away. Hire a bike for the week or simply walk everywhere via lanes and footpaths.
Cardiff approx an hour and a half away.
Severn Bridge via the M4 - under 2 hours
Car is very useful but not essential, a number of guests enjoy walking into Carew and catching the bus to link to coastal shuttle buses. More information available.
Bike riding is great, the route for Iron Man and other triathlons passes the end of our lane.
