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.

customer reviews for Pembrokeshire Tin Bungalow

The Tin Bungalow is a real gem. A characterful and quirky property in a hidden-away location. It's a great base to explore the many delights of the Daugleddau Estuary, and is also within easy reach of everything else Pembrokeshire has to offer.

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.
