about the property

A traditional Pembrokeshire holiday cottage built from tin in the 1920s. Now refurbished and insulated and one of the best quirky holiday cottage homes for the family in all of West Wales!

"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'.

The Guardian named this cottage in the top 5 coolest cottages in Pembrokeshire!

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.

We had another lovely holiday at the beautiful Tin Bungalow. The bungalow has everything you need for a peaceful break away. We especially loved the large garden area. We will surely come again.

We had another lovely holiday at the beautiful Tin Bungalow. The bungalow has everything you need for a peaceful break away. We especially loved the large garden area. We will surely come again.

Lovely secluded property. Great place to get away from it all. Garden is lovely and the sun room a great place for the kids to relax/play in. Easy parking. Would be nice if it had a washing machine, especially for those longer stays. WiFi would be a nice addition too as the is not much signal there and its useful for planning trips etc.

We love the Tin Bungalow. This is our second stay. The house is quirky and cosy, but with lots of great spaces to enjoy - the kitchen with dining nook, lounge with wood burner and the sun room/conservatory. The garden is good, with a picnic table and it has a good dog-proof perimeter! There are so many beaches to explore - they are about a 30min drive. You also have Pembroke castle (and a bunch of other castles) within easy reach, and Tenby. Tin Bungalow is a firm favourite.

Loved staying in the Tin Bungalow. Very cosy and we'll equipped. We visited Carew Castle which was worth seeing then had an amazing meal in the Carew Inn...Didn't have room for dessert. We had a wonder through Narberth town, they have an amazing cake shop there.

We had a wonderful few days at The Tin Bungalow. It is a quirky, cosy and comfortable place to stay, in this beautiful part of the world. It is well equipped and very clean. Clearly a lot of thought and care has been taken to renovate and refurbish this charming cottage. Thank you to the owners for sharing it with us! Warm wishes, Keri Johnson.

We had a brilliant time at Tin Bungalow. It's a beautiful place with real character, has everything you need (well stocked kitchen, tv with freeview for the kids, big garden etc). We loved sitting in the sun room and watching the sun go down (or the storms, depending on great british weather!). Its in a great location too, with lots of activities and beaches all within 20 mins. We'd love to come back again.

A great week in a fantastic corner of Pembrokeshire. The bungalow was lovely, with plenty of space for a family of four. Coming back to such a quiet, rural spot after days on the beach was perfect. Would highly recommend the bungalow both for its character and location.

Wonderful cottage in a good location. The cottage contained everything we needed and we made good use of the games cupboard on a very rainy Saturday!

We had a great time at the tin bungalow, absolutely loved it. Interesting books and films to hand and lots of leaflets about the surrounding area. Beaches galore to explore.

We had a lovely time at the Tin Bungalow. It was stylish and comfortable - especially with the log burner on in the evenings. A cosy place to come back to after visiting nearby beaches. The selection of games, books and DVDs was a bonus, and the little park opposite was appreciated by the kids.

- Angharad J,

Lovely house, exactly as described but better. Much more spacious than it looks in the photos and has everything you could possibly need. Really nice to have the garden completely enclosed so could just let the dog run without watching him like a hawk. The log burner heated the whole place really well and the kitchen had everything you would need.

We had a lovely new year's break at the Tin Bungalow. It is a very cosy accommodation with a quirky edge to the furnishings. The location is in a sleepy village called Martletwy and the Bungalow is surrounded by fields and countryside. We had a wonderful New Year's Eve walk from Stackpole Quay to Barafundle beach and Bosherton Lily ponds.

What an amazing cottage. Well positioned for anything you want to do in Pembrokeshire and wonderfully quiet. We will return to do more of the fantastic walks in the area.

We all enjoyed our stay in this quirky bungalow. It is bigger inside than you think... and it is only 20 mins drive to Saundersfoot's lovely long sandy beach

Absolutely delightful stay at the tin bungalow! Setting is in a lovely little hamlet but despite neighbours as soon as you enter the enclosed garden you feel completely isolated!!! Yay! Uninterrupted views of the countryside from almost every window and so peaceful, yet just a short distance from great attractions. It really is ideally placed to explore the area. The bungalow itself completely lived up to the fantastic pictures online- it really is that gorgeous! All our needs met and then some! This really is an amazing holiday home - have never felt keen to get back to work before to make everyone else green with envy!

A beautiful, secluded cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the quirky Tin Bungalow. With it's retro-feel furnishings and extremely comfortable beds, it provided a relaxing base from which to explore Pembrokeshire.

The bungalow is set in an idilic location with plenty to do within a short drive/walk from the door. The bungalow is well equipped and is full of quirky art/things! I would happily come back in a heart beat! The bungalow is surprisingly spacious too, from the photographs I was worried it might be a little too cramped for the 4 of us but there was more than enough room.I highly recommend the tin bungalow (as I have for my previous 4 UTT properties!).

We loved our stay at the Tin Bungalow! We had a wonderful time and this quirky little gem was the perfect base for exploring south Pembrokeshire. Well equipped, comfortable, warm and cosy. The sun room is a real treat for reading and relaxing. Loved how the sun shone through the kitchen windows in the morning. A little peace haven; we will definitely be back!

We had a lovely stay. From the outside a wriggly tin bungalow, inside a veritable palace. Quirkily decorated and well-equipped, warm and water tight and very comfortable. We hope to return.

As always a delightful stay in a delightful cottage. It was made extra special by Tim and Greta's dressing of a lovely little Christmas tree and a selection of generous Christmas gifts. Thank you so much. We will be back again. Very soon.

Lovely cosy cottage - stylish and quiet. Location is not ideal as you need car to get to most places of interest, however, there's lots to do such as creek walks, blue lagoon, beaches and great shops in Narberth. Our fourth stay there!

A whale-grey corrugated tin home that smiles at you from every room. You can belong from the minute your feet hit the doormat! We loved flinging open the sash windows and blowing bubbles out into the matching crocosmia. We loved the estuary walks, the neighbourhood horses, the quirky chapels and grass growing up in the middle of lanes.

- Helen todd ,

We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful tin bungalow and would reccommend it as a great place to stay for families with young children. There was lots to do nearby even on rainy days and the tin bungalow has a great garden. Such a peaceful spot in an area of Wales we have fallen in love with. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
