About Vivien Richards

I have been visiting Pembrokeshire for holidays since chlidhood. I am now 70 and never found anywhere better! We have owned a holiday cottage in Pembs for 25 years. We bought The Bungalow in 2003 and we renovated Sarah's Cottage from a ruin 5 years ago.

Vivien Richards purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Vivien Richards chose Saint Ishmael's

We always admired the location of The Bungalow and Sarah's Cottage from across the water at the pub in Dale - particularly the sunny aspect.

What makes this cottage unique

The Pembrokeshire coast is spectacular and the pace of life is very relaxed. A visit to see the puffins on Skommer Island in May is a must. It's an ideal location for fishing or generally exploring the nearby beaches. The local walks are wonderful but mostly we just like to enjoy the cottage and surrounding area.

Stunning Coastal location

  • 5 of 5

This property is quiet literally off the beaten track. It occupies a stunning coastal location with access to a very quiet stoney beach our toddler loved this beach lots of rocks and shells to investigate. The property itself is a lovely old cottage with plenty of room, and everything you need, clean and well maintained. If you are looking for a quiet coastal break I don't think you could find a better location. There are plenty of sandy beaches not to far away. If you are looking for somewhere lively with shops etc within walking distance then this is not for you. We had a fabulous time.

The beach (access straight from the gardens) consists of pebbles, rocks and rock pools, home to crabs and many other sea creatures including mussels and cockles. There are patches of sand to keep young children happy for hours. Its also an ideal spot for fishing!!

There are many beautiful beaches in the area within a 10 to 20 minute car drive.

The walks along the Pembrokeshire coast path are stunning especially with the early Summer flowers. Boat trips to nearby Skomer island are a must.
