Cottage overview - owner's description

A 200 year old cosy yet spacious terraced cottage enjoying extensive coastal views. Right on the water front with large rear garden, great for families or couples. 3 large bedrooms sleeping 6 plus cot

Little Baradwys (a mix of two languages meaning Little Paradise) is a 200 year old terraced cottage in Doc Penfro (Pembroke Dock), Dyfed, (Pembrokeshire), an area steeped in history.

Right on the 'sea front' with lovely views across the water from the sitting room and main bedroom.

Little Baradwys actually overlooks the magnificent Cleddau Estuary where you can see a plethora of sailing and other boats every day - even the huge Irish Ferries dock here and are quite a sight when they arrive and leave.

As there are only properties on one side of the road (the sea is on the other), there is plenty of on street parking and there is a lovely, quiet 'olde worlde' pub called the Shipwrights - just 3 doors away. There is a more modern establishment called Y Cerrig Glas (The Blue Stones) right at the other end of the road next to ASDA, just a couple of minutes walk from the house.

There is a sunny courtyard to the rear of Little B with a garden extending to around 90 feet, mainly laid to lawn with fruit and other trees dotted about. Outdoor furniture is provided.

Little Baradwys has 3 double bedrooms - one with full size twin beds, one with a kingsized bed and one with a super kingsized bed.

The twin and superking rooms are on the first floor where there is also a main bath room with shower and toilet.

The kingsized room is on the ground floor and is right next door to a shower room and toilet - not quite en-suite but very close! There is also direct access to the rear garden from this room through double patio doors.

Pembroke Dock or The Port of Pembroke is a town with a short but illustrious past. At the end of the eighteenth century the area was just farmland but by 1901 the town had 11,000 residents. It originally grew up around the Royal Naval Dockyard and produced 260 fine ships between 1814-1926, including several royal yachts and men-of-war.


Pembroke Dock is connected by several bus services linking to Haverfordwest, Milford Haven and Tenby. Pembroke Dock also has a railway station.

Irish Ferries operate a ferry service from Pembroke Dock to Rosslare in southern Ireland. The ferry runs twice a day in the early afternoon and the early hours of the morning.

Pembroke Dock (Welsh: Doc Penfro) is a town in Pembrokeshire, south-west Wales, lying north of Pembroke on the River Cleddau. Originally a small fishing village known as Paterchurch, the town was greatly expanded from 1814 onwards following the construction of a Royal Naval Dockyard. It is the third largest town in Pembrokeshire after Haverfordwest and Milford Haven. Prior to 1814, the site of modern Pembroke Dock and its nearby settlements were mostly farmland and the area was referred to as Paterchurch. The first recorded mention of Paterchurch was in 1289. In the area a medieval tower was built and, like nearby 18th-century and 19th-century fortifications, it may have served as a lookout post. By the 17th century, additional domestic and farm buildings stood close to the tower and the isolated settlement had its own cemetery, whose last recorded burial is that of a Roger Adams, in 1731. The ruin of the tower now lies within the walls of the Dockyard. There has been approval given by Pembrokeshire County Council for a new yacht marina to be built alongside Front Street but work has yet to begin.

The History of Pembroke Dock

One of the gun towers has recently been renovated and refitted as it would have looked in Victorian times, complete with a roof top cannon and realistic models of defending soldiers. Another gun tower can be seen at the western end of the Royal dockyard. It is also being restored by a private individual so isn't likely to be open to the public.

The defensible barracks can be seen on the hill overlooking Pembroke Dock. This is also in private hands but can be viewed from the surrounding parkland. The barracks are one of the most unusual barrack buildings in Britain, probably the last example of a ‘square bastion trace' fortification built in Europe. The form of the design dates back to 16th century Italy. Its four wings are surrounded by a large moat, with two Martello Towers protecting the seaward approach from Milford Haven.

Other forts in the vicinity include Scoverston Fort, Fort Popton, Stack Rock Fort, Thorne Island, Chapel Bay Fort, South Hook Fort, Dale Fort and East & West Blockhouse.

Irish Ferries operate a ferry service from Pembroke Dock to Rosslare in southern Ireland. The ferry runs twice a day in the early afternoon and the early hours of the morning.

There are a number of hotels in Pembroke Dock including The Cleddau Bridge hotel, near to the bridge linking Pembroke Dock to north Pembrokeshire. There are a few B&Bs and guesthouses in Pembroke and Pembroke Dock. The nearest camp sites or caravan sites would be south of Pembroke. There are self catering cottages in the area but more likely to be found nearer the coast.

The South Pembrokeshire Golf Club occupy a superb location above Pembroke Dock with fine views over The Milford Haven waterway.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path crosses the Cleddau Bridge, passes next to the National Park offices and traverses round the waterfront past the Martello Tower on Front Street (opposite Little Baradwys) before heading uphill on the way to Pembroke. The character of the coast path around the haven is quite different to that around the more rugged coastline.


Folly Farm is one of the most popular holiday attractions for all the family, we have leaflets and information in the Welcome Folder at Little Baradwys about this and many other local attractions.

The Flying Boat Centre based in the Royal Dockyard recounts the towns 30 year link with the Sunderland flying boats. Soon to be moving to the beautiful Garrison Chapel. Designed by naval architect George Ledwell Taylor, the Grade II listed Garrison Chapel is believed to be the only surviving classical Georgian Church in Wales. It was built by the Admiralty in 1830 as a place of worship for its employees in the dockyard.

Llanion Cemetery contains the war graves of 23 Commonwealth service personnel, including two unidentified Royal Navy sailors, of the First World War and 51 of the Second, including four unidentified Royal Navy sailors and an unidentified airman.

Pembroke Dock Military Cemetery contains the war graves of 40 Commonwealth service personnel of the First World War and 33 of the Second

Food and drink

The Station Inn pub, as its name suggests is right on the station and was previously the waiting room! It serves real ales, great food and has weekly live music.

The Shipwright Inn on Front Street, three doors away from Little Baradwys, overlooking the historic Martello Gun Tower. A lovely, characterful old pub serving great beer anf food.

The First and Last pub; its right in between Pembroke and Pembroke Dock which is how it’s got its name, it’s the last pub in Pembroke Dock and the first in Pembroke! On the roundabout before the Cleddau Toll Bridge.

There is also the new Marstons pub right on the water front at the junction of Front Street and Western Way, near ASDA called Y Cerrig Glas (The Blue Stones). Open all day, serving local ales and food all day.

The Shipwright and the Y Cerrig Glas are on the same road as Little Baradwys and the nearest supermarket - ASDA is just a three minute walk away. Tesco is just a quarter of a mile further on.


Pembroke itself is steeped in history, a small, charming, walled town with a Medieval Castle dating back to the 13th Century and was the birth place of Henry V11.

There is a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs in both towns.

There are gentle walks along the Mill Pond (look out for kingfishers and otters) and to the remains of Monkton's Benedictine Priory.Pembroke is at the very centre of a wide circle of things to do and places to see, many of which come under the care of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Within easy reach of Pembroke are the resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot; the historic and revitalised dockyard towns of Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven; the castles of Manorbier and Carew; the magnificent beaches of the South Pembrokeshire Coastline; the popular market town of Narberth; the picturesque 24 mile Haven Waterway, and, of course, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path
