Little Haven is a picturesque coastal village with three pubs and a pretty beach and Broad Haven has a long, sandy beach, local shop, bar and café.

These cottages are situated in an ideal location for touring both the coast and countryside of Pembrokeshire. St David’s, to the north, with its Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and host of attractive little pubs, shops and galleries, is just 17 miles away, with some lovely beaches and former fishing villages on the way, including Newgale and Solva. Within a few miles of the cottage, to the south west, are several little sandy beaches, Musselwick Sands, Marloes Sands and Dale - good for watersports, as well as the Visitor Centre and boat trips to the wildlife sanctuaries of Skomer and Skokholm Islands, if you hope for sightings of puffins, Manx shearwaters, dolphins and more. For touring, walking or relaxing, this is the perfect location for a holiday or short break at any time of year.

Shippon cottage is an absolute delight from the moment you open the door. Every room has been carefully and tastefully decorated to the highest standard. Even the Kitchen ( which often lets many properties down ) was also of the highest standard. A great deal of effort has been made to ensure the comfort of guests down to the smallest details. It is one of the 3 best properties we have stayed in throughout the UK and Scotland.Mr P R Saunders - 21st May 2018
Skomer and coast fantastic.Mr R Haynes - 9th May 2018
Shippon is a beautiful cottage: clean, warm, very comfortable, and in a quiet and peaceful location. The owners and friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive: we felt we had privacy but assistance when we needed it. A wonderful holiday property at any time of the year.

Worked very well for me & I hope to return.Mr Stevenson - 30th May 2016
Shippon was perfect! Peaceful setting, yet close enough for a stroll into Little Haven - very much enjoyed sitting outside the Castle pub, pint of local cider in hand to enjoy the sunset. The owners of Shippon were very friendly and helpful. Loved the little touches, such as the welsh cakes on arrival. Hope to return!Mrs Urquhart - 26th August 2015
