CUSTOMER REVIEWS
  • We only had 2 nights in this lovely quirky property as that is all that was available and I really wanted to stay here after seeing it in an article in a magazine! It certainly didn't disappoint! Lovely short stay. Thank you. Julie C, 21 July 2015
  • The cottage was splendid and everybody had a fabulous time. Hide and seek in the garden was a particular favourite. Would highly recommend a visit. Andrew R, 21 July 2015
  • A little gem of a place. The bungalow itself is really neat. Has a lovely homey authentic feel and you might expect to have to put up with a few quirks. But not at all. It is extremely well equipped, warm, spacious and comfortable. Piping out water. Lovely kitchen/lounge, bedrooms and bathroom. The area itself is magical. Walk down to the estuary and stroll along for miles to hidden backwaters, quiet mooring points, secret pubs and cafes. Narbeth is a characterful small market town with some great shops and restaurants. Tenby is another gem with stunning local beaches and continue along East and West to find further magical places. Hugh R, 1 July 2015
  • A beautiful and quirky place to stay. Immaculately clean and well equipped. Peaceful location with some of the best beaches in the UK just a short drive away. Matthew smith , 29 June 2015
  • The Tin Bungalow is a fantastic magical little place in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. The cottage itself is the perfect size for 4, with a good kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and that fantastic stove. You very quickly feel at home. Its very peaceful but within very easy reach of towns like Tenby and some of the best beaches in the world are on your doorstep. I am certain we will stay here again. Thanks so much. Yaw D, 25 June 2015
  • 'The only fault is that it is not ours .... simply magical accommodation.' 1 July 2014
  • 'Beautiful renovated place. So comfortable and warm ... the views are wonderful.' 1 July 2014
 
INFORMATION

"Perched on the edge of Martletwy village and surrounded by rolling fields on three sides, the two-bedroom Tin Bungalow is perfect for an away-from-it-all weekend. When you're not curled up in the glass sun room lapping up those views, take a walk to the Daugleddau Estuary or to Cresselly Arms at Cresswell Quay, an old fashioned country pub serving real ale, both just two miles away. There's even a shed for storing bikes." The Observer, who selected this property in their '20 Perfect (international) Getaways for Valentines' article.

The Guardian named this cottage in the top 5 coolest cottages in Pembrokeshire! See a 30 second Flipagram of a guest's winter weekend here!

This 1920s tin Pembrokeshire cottage has been refurbished and kitted out with a fantastic vintage interior and now makes a unique destination in one of the most beautiful areas of Wales. It is warm, (fully insulated), characterful, and a credit to the Welsh tin heritage. These little tin houses popped up in all the prettiest parts of Wales in the early twenteith century as farmers started to sell their prettiest plots and fields to people that wanted to make charming and affordable weekend retreats. There is a touch of the 'Bohemian' to the styling, which is appropriate enough as bungalows started life as the weekend homes of artistic types before their reputation was ruined by some horrors from the 1960s. Fear not, there is nothing grannified here. The Tin Bungalow has a wonderful homely vintage style that feels like a great place to be. Extra photos here or click here for an aerial photo or an independent guest review. This (very) amateur video will give you an idea of the layout.
