Ideal for couples seeking something a little different, this quirky holiday home in Pembrokeshire had a previous life as a horse lorry. It’s located in the serene village of Angle, right on the coast, with a pub, restaurant and beach all within 100 metres. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast with a view over Angle Bay, then head out to explore local sites like Pembroke Castle (10 miles) or enjoy seaside activities such as swimming and paddleboarding.

Everything is (naturally) horse-themed in this comfy abode, from the artwork and door signs to the artifacts and soft furnishings. In the welcoming lounge area, sink into the comfy sofa and read quietly by the heat of the cosy wood burner as your partner prepares dinner in the small-but-perfectly-formed kitchen, equipped with integrated appliances. A built-in dining bench provides the perfect spot for serving up and tucking in. At the front of the horsebox, the driver's cabin has been repurposed into an inviting bedroom with a double bed and an additional leather sofa bed for if you have extra guests with you. Outside, you’ll have a lovely decked area with seating so you can absorb the views and the fresh air with a coffee or evening beer.

The Pembroke Coast Path runs right by the property, opening up wonderful opportunities for pretty walks with your pets. Try the West Angle Bay Circular walk for starters, a 6-mile route taking in red sandstone cliffs, a Victorian fort, a museum and a café. Freshwater West (3 miles) is a local surfer spot where you can kick back on a wide beach backed by cliffs, sand dunes and a promenade.

The accommodation was perfect for one man and his dog. So lovely, sited so perfectly in Angle, overlooking the estuary, that for one day I just spent it at the Retreat.

We had a fabulous stay, the views and remote location were ideal especially with the nice weather we got. Our wee dog loved the coastal walk and nearby beaches. The cottage had everything you needed but we decided to eat out at the point house and Wavecrest (both were delicious however we didnt realise the old point house closed quite early). ThereRead more was plenty to explore near by (lily ponds and freshwater west were my faves). We would definitely make this a regular getaway if we stayed closer. Hide

If you want remote peace and quiet with views to die for then this is it. You like sailing and messing on the sea then this is the place. Wagon has been done beautifully and is so homely and cosy. Stunning views across the bay. We will definitely be back. Cant fault anything as everything was catered for. 10 out of 10 for wagon. Amazing place.
