We Say... - This lovely Manor house, built in 1770 by John Rees Stokes, with its impressive Walled garden, and surrounding orchard, woodland and lawn is situated just 3.6 miles from the stunning Newgale Beach. It is currently operating as a successful award-winning Guest House with two self-catering cottages, and generous staff/owners accommodation. Currently there are 8 guest bedrooms on the first floor (all floors are served by a lift), with four of them being en suite and another two shower rooms serving the remaining rooms. The second floor provides a self-contained 1 bedroom apartment, as well as 3 bedroom owner's accommodation
The Owner Says... - This year we will have been here longer than any previous occupants since the first world war, so something went well. Roch is a great village with wonderful community spirit and we have enjoyed being part of this, through the courses, the cream teas, welsh themed feasts, the music nights and festivals that we have organised here. We are proud of the business we have built withmajor investments in rooms, renewable energy, barn conversions, garden restoration etc. The tourist industry in Pembrokeshire provides a wonderfully supportive infrastructure for businesses like ours-grants and loans have helped us, and support from other providers is also strong. But there will be yet another life for this stunning house, perhaps different altogether, or moving forward as a welcoming part of our vibrant tourist industry.
And the best part of living here? Being surrounded by trees, the company of buzzards and red kites, the annual visit by large numbers of housemartins busying themselves with building nests and feeding their young in the eaves of the house and the spectacle of the starling murmurations each year.
Come On In.... - Passing through the elegant doric columns of the portico and the entrance door, the Entrance Hall has doors to right and left, with the majestic original staircase leading to the upper floors. To the left is the guest breakfast/dining room, beyond which is the kitchen, fitted with stainless steel commercial equipment as well as a Wamsler solid fuel cooker, a walk-in pantry and scullery. There are further store rooms and a WC in this area. To the right of the hall is the guest sitting room with wood burning stove, the guest library, and beyond these the office, laundry room and other store rooms.
On the first floor, the eight well-proportioned guest bedrooms have been named after former owners of the house. Four of the rooms are ensuite, with two additional shower rooms serving the remainder. One of the rooms is suitable for disabled use (close to the lift), and some are set up for family use.
The second floor is laid out as generous owners' accommodation with three bedrooms, sitting room and shower room and an open-plan living area. A door then leads through to a one bedroom self-contained apartment, with sitting room, bathroom and kitchen, which can be accessed via the metal fire-escape to the rear of the building, and could either be let out to provide additional income, or used for staff accommodation or to enable two families to live in and manage the guest house.
Step Outside... - Behind the house are the two converted stone buildings, The Bothy and Fiddlers' Cottage. These can by accessed from the back gate/driveway, where there is ample parking space. The Bothy, as its name suggests, is a small cosy cottage for one or two people, with open plan sitting/dining/kitchen room, with a staircase leading up to the 'croglofft' open plan mezzanine sleeping area and an ensuite bathroom. Fiddlers' Cottage has a ground floor bedroom, spacious open plan kitchen/dining room and sitting area. On the first floor are two bedrooms with ensuite facilities (with somewhat restricted headroom).
Beyond the cottages, with a distinctive bell-tower on one corner, is the wonderful and productive walled garden, with mature flower borders, vegetable beds, greenhouse, polytunnel and fruit bushes and trees. There are further wooded areas and an orchard beyond the walled garden.
The house is approached through two stone pillars by a tree-lined tarmac driveway, underplanted with stunning hydrangeas and other shrubs. This leads to a spacious parking area to the front of the house, with adjacent lawns and attractive flower borders.
