About Peter Lay
The cottage is owned by sporting outdoor enthusiasts and National Trust supporters Peter and Sally Lay who live with their family in Gloucestershire, UK. We are a strongly ethically and environmentally driven enterprise. We enjoy a love of the sea and value the heritage and unique environmental qualities of this coastal area. Peter, a geography and education graduate from Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, enjoyed a long career in marketing working with world famous brands. Today, in a 'second' career he works in public office. Sally is a social studies graduate of London's Royal Holloway College and combines the job of mum with work as a medical secretary. They are committed to sharing this outstanding location with like minded visitors to Pembrokeshire and to delivering an exceptional holiday experience at an affordable price.
Why Peter Lay chose Stackpole
This is a romantic traditional stone built (1862) cottage, bursting with character, sited a mere km or so from the famous Pembrokeshire National Coast Park footpath and two amazing world class, National Trust owned beaches. The environment is a haven for anyone with an interest in geography, geology, history, conservation, wild life (particularly ornithology), photography, fauna and magnificent seascapes. It is also perfectly located for outdoor enthusiasts and particularly those who enjoy any of the following activites: walking, coastal trail runs, cycling, swimming, surfing, sailing, water ski, fishing and enjoying fine, remote and relaxing beaches away from the madding crowd. A National Nature Reserve of special international importance, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Norman churches and medieval castles are either a short walk or road journey from the property. The property is popular with members and families of The National Trust and the British based Women's Institute. It sits peacefully in a secluded woodland glade festooned with wild life and fauna within the National Trust owned Stackpole Estate. The quality of fixture and fittings, kitchen equipment and in-home entertainment, coupled with the presentation of the cottage is modelled to at least the high standards found in National Trust Holiday Cottages throughout the UK.
What makes this Cottage unique
The stream side property offers total privacy and is set at the end of a tree lined track in a woodland glade. Unlike so many holiday rentals in the area this is not a communal unit- there are no neighbours, owners or holiday makers! The managed gardens comprise of nearly one acre and the surrounding woodland views encompass a further five acres. A babbling stream runs alongside one side of the garden and is a fond and lasting memory for many guests. Pooh sticks are a favourite game for the children. The adjacent woods provide a playground of exploration and mountain bike fun for all the family. This property is toasty warm in winter and cool in summer with a variety of sun terraces and outdoor furniture. It is maintianed to a high standard and is continually improved year on year. There are gentle grade short walks to Britain's smallest harbour at Stackpole Quay, (which is also home to the mouth watering Boathouse Café), the famous Lily Ponds at Bosherston, the nation's favourite beach at Barafundle Bay and historic Pembroke Town (with its medieval castle being the birth place of King Henry VII) is a short car journey away.
