Have a greener holiday at The Tin Housee:

This is a wonderfully renovated traditional Pembrokeshire tin cottage in the centre of one of Wales’ most beautiful areas. It is cosy (fully insulated throughout) and bursting with character; not only does the building itself stand testament to a fascinating part of Welsh history, but the interior has been decorated and furnished with wonderfully homely vintage flair. These tin constructions were first built in the 1920s by those who wanted to build charming yet affordable weekend treats in the beautiful countryside. Farmers began to sell off plots of their prettiest land to those who wanted them, and these lovely tin houses began to spring up! With the addition of mod cons, and most importantly insulation, this particular bungalow is now ready to come into the twenty-first century.

Nearby you will find plenty to do and see. This part of the Welsh coast has the highest concentration of Blue Flag beaches in Europe, so take your pick as to which you’d like to explore first. For a lovely countryside stroll, make your way along the 2.5 miles to the Cresselly Arms at Cresswell Quay and reward yourself with a cold pint.
