The School House is a traditional stone cottage, converted from the former school masters house, standing back to back with the Village Hall, previously the school, in the quiet, rural hamlet of Walwyn’s Castle, within two miles of the coast at Little Haven and 5 miles from the facilities of Haverfordwest. Walwyn’s Castle is within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and with the Rosemoor Nature Reserve on the doorstep. An ideal, central location for touring Pembrokeshire coast and countryside.
Accommodation at the property comprises:
Entrance Hall: with space for storing coats and boots.
Sitting Room: carpeted, with two sofas, TV with built-in Freeview and DVD player, electric flame-effect stove or open fire. Partly open-plan to the adjacent
Dining Kitchen: a good sized room with fitted units, electric oven and ceramic hob with cooker hood, microwave, tall fridge freezer and washer/dryer. Attractive dining table and six chairs, and a large pine dresser to complete the country kitchen feel.
Bathroom: (ground floor) well presented with contemporary white suite including an electric shower over the bath.
On the first floor:
Bedroom One: a good sized room with beamed ceiling, king size bed and pine bedroom suite.
Bedroom Two: similarly presented, with twin beds, with double duvets for additional comfort.
Heating is by night storage heaters with convector boost downstairs, convector heaters upstairs, all with timers and thermostatic controls.
Outside: The School House sits in enclosed, lawned grounds, with picnic bench on the patio area. Parking for one car within the enclosed grounds and the free to use community car park is adjacent to the property.
Family attractions in the area include Folly Farm and Oakwood Theme Park. There is lovely local walking including the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, and day boat trips to Skomer Island to see Puffins and other wildlife, from the Lockley Lodge Visitor Centre, 9 miles away. The picturesque seaside village of Little Haven and the long sandy beach at Broad Haven are each about 3 miles away, and there are other lovely beaches within a short distance. Dale, 7.5 miles away, in an excellent centre for watersports. The little city of St David’s is just 18 miles away, with its magnificent Cathedral and Bishop's Palace. This is a good base for a family holiday offering great variety.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The School House, a delightful cottage and just what we wanted. We stayed cosy and warm during Hurricane Ophelia and enjoyed everywhere we have visited from this ideal location. We especially liked Little Haven and our delicious evening meals in St Brides Hotel. Everything very comfortable and a good location. We still have much to see and will come again. Particularly enjoyed Solva, St David's and Whitesands Bay. Seal pups at Martin's Haven were a bonus!Mrs H Linington - 21st October 2017
Thanks again Walwyns Castle Community for the beautiful cottage. We have had a wonderful stay and blessed with 7 days of fabulous weather. The summer duvets were very necessary - thank you! Spent most of the week on our favourite beaches, building sandcastles and body boarding, what we call a perfect Pembrokeshire day! Tried new places to eat this year - The Castle in Little Haven (booking necessary), The Milton Brewery do an amazing Sunday lunch and if you're stuck and nowhere is available try The Jolly Sailor, you may have to sit in the back garden but the view is amazing and food really good. We'll be back again.Mrs J Handel - 2nd September 2017
Very peaceful location yet well situated for all areas of Pembrokeshire, beaches etc. Beds and sofas were really comfortable and we had everything we needed.Mrs Victoria Bendall - 30th August 2017
Once again a great holiday in the perfect cottage. We love the area for its beaches and visitor sites, Broad Haven, Newgale, Dale, St David's and more. The cottage was ideal for what we needed. The beds were extremely comfortable but the duvets were a bit too warm for this time of year, but then it has been exceptional weather. Having enjoyed our third visit to The School House we look forward to returning.Mr Tony Wainwright - 22nd July 2017
Thank you for another lovely stay here at The School House despite the awful weather in the middle of our first week. Highlight this year was a trip around Ramsey Island. The wildlife was amazing. Good food as usual in the pubs and sunset on Broad Haven beach was great, we took amazing photos. There is so much to do in this area and we even walked up to Foel Eryr, amazing views. A crab roll at Freshwater West is a must!Anne & Sam Joy - 8th July 2017
Super week as always and despite some blustery weather walks from St Brides and Marloes. Pembroke Castle well worth a visit. Hope to be back soon.Mrs Catherine Cawley - 10th June 2017
Another fantastic stay at The School House. Weather has been really kind to us and have managed to get a lot of walking in. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. Going home to book our next stay.Mary & Denis - 13th May 2017
Lovely peaceful location, very private and relaxing. Well placed for touring the area.Ms Lynda Johnson - 11th April 2017
We have greatly enjoyed our stay in The School House, which is very comfortable, clean & cosy. Taken advantage of the beautiful weather this week and it has been fun exploring the country far & wide, and closer to 'home' - the Rosemoor Reserve is well worth a visit and right on the doorstep. Thanks to all involved in maintaining the cottage for our enjoyment, a little gem in Walwyns Castle. We hope future guests enjoy themselves as much as we've done.Ms Lynda Johnson - 8th April 2017
Very peaceful cottage and area to get away from it all.Mrs Aspinall - 27th October 2016
Very warm and comfortable. A quiet location with easy access to all local activities and beaches.Mrs Jenkins - 14th August 2016
We'll be back!Mr Trapnell - 16th September 2015
Service was excellent all went smoothly, and I would recommend the cottage that we stayed in.Miss Field - 4th June 2015
Very quiet and peaceful location, with beach and eating located 10 mins drive.Mrs Stemp - 6th May 2015
This property was better than we had expected. Lovely and clean and well furnished. We chose the area as we wanted to go to Skomer Island and see the Puffins. Amazing. Just like being in a David Attenborough film. St David's Cathedral is also another must see. The coastline was breathtaking and the beaches were lovely.Ms Joy - 22nd July 2014
