Pembrokeshire - castles, coastal paths, and rolling countryside, edged with some of the longest and most beautiful sandy beaches in the world. High hedges, rock pools, funky and fresh and foraged sea food, exhilarating waves and a growing wealth of water sports…even big game fishing. Tenby, Laugharne, Dale, Pendine, Lawrhenny, the regenerated bouji Narbeth high street packed with delis and dinky shops - Pembs for us is ever jam-packed with memories of holidays at LLlaregubb with its superb sea views from every room . It’s been our family getaway for over 5o years. Though our recent upgrade may have changed it on its inside it’s heart will always remain true to my parents - a home from home to escape to.

This is a unique opportunity to experience these same unspoiled and breathtaking views at friends and family rates until next year. For now the kitchen and living room remain largely unchanged until Phase 2 when the kitchen will move into the main room so all cooks will be able to have the sea as their muse. This is a quote from our first guests, the Berry family this summer…

“We loved the Beach House, which is in the process of being renovated by David and Anjana, our very welcoming hosts.  They clearly have a great eye for getting the best out of a property, and once finished this one will clearly be amazing.  So far they have renovated the bedrooms and bathrooms and they are gorgeous. 

The rest of the space is in its original 1970s form and although it hasn’t yet received the full magic touch and is a bit rough round the edges, it is light and spacious with incredible views across Saundersfoot Bay and six of us had a delightful stay there. It’s a 5 minute walk into town and the beach there in one direction, and a 5 minute walk the other way to the coast path and a more secluded beach on which dogs are allowed all year round.

We took part in their foraging trip and spent a very interesting morning learning about and collecting coastal plants, consuming them later during an extremely enjoyable evening with our fellow foragers at a pop-up restaurant in the garden of a nearby farmhouse where they were cooked with care and skill by the foraging guide himself, Matt Powell, who is also a brilliant chef.

We had a wonderful few days [staying in all of their properties in Wales], and are looking forward to returning soon.

Llaregubb is so named with an extra B because it’s more than buggerall {backward} the fictional village depicted in Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood. Visit his Boat House in Laugharne, walk round the estuary on his October birthday. Declaim from Henry V when you pass the castle. No he wasn’t a Tudor but a Plantagenet but it’s the day after Agincourt. And up the road there is of course Pembroke Castle home of Henry and Jasper Tudor, granddad and great uncle of Henry VIII the monarch we all love to hate…

Wales - there is so much more to Wales now they have improved outdoor clothing….

Llaregubb: Family Beach House, Pembrokeshire

Saundersfoot, Wales

The BEach House in brief

Our beautifully restored modern beach house in Saundersfoot, overlooking the bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The house has stunning views over the sea and a clever upside-down design, with room for up to six guests.

The house has been our family bolt-hole for more than fifty years. Our David’s love for Wales was nurtured by his father on trips to his homeland. Once a practically forgotten corner of the country, Pembrokeshire is fast becoming a cool coastal escape. We’ve given the beach house the Chillderness treatment to bring it bang up to date. The house is available from July 2019 onwards.
