About Bryan Johnson


My name is Bryan Johnson. I have had a successful small retail business in Oxford for about 25 years.

I have owned the chalet in Freshwater East for ten years and enjoyed many happy holidays there.

I am reluctantly letting it to help meet the bills.

If am sure you will have a wonderful time.

Why Bryan Johnson chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

Freshwater East is located in beautiful countryside within the only coastal National Park in UK.

The sandy, sheltered beach is only a few minutes walk away.

Many other beaches can be reached with a short drive

including Barafundle, Manorbier and Broadhaven. Some are administered by The National Trust.

Many activities are available such as walking, bird spotting, fishing and water sports.

There are castles and islands to be visited.

Stackpole quay with it's tea room and Bosherton Lily Pools are a must see.

Locally, there is on site a club selling food and drink (opening hours vary). The Freshwater Inn is nearby and serves good food. The vilage of Lamphey is two miles away and boasts a number of fine restaurants.

Historic Pembroke is only four miles away with an impressive Norman Cas

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is reached by a short but quite steep path and may not be suitable for everyone.

However once accomplished you will be rewarded with glorious views of the beach and panoramic countryside.

There is a large terrace to the front with an eight seater table with parasol.

No dogs are allowed on site. ,.

A pleasant clean Chalet with excellent views of Freshwater East beach

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is really a two storey little house. It is clean and tidy with all you need for a holiday home. The bedrooms are a bit small but the beds were comfy and the bathroom was ok but no bath just a shower. The beach is within a 5 minute walk and you get a great view of it from the front of the Chalet. It is ideally placed between Tenby and Pembroke. Perfect for a relaxing holiday in Pembrokeshire.

Perfect Location for the beach and Welsh Coastal trail

  • 3 of 5

Brilliant location 2 mins walk to the beach and access to the coastal trails. Coming from Australia it was a novelty to see a beach set amongst the Welsh fields and we really enjoyed our stay. The landscape is divine and the views from the cabin are beautiful and the area is really tranquil. The cabin itself is cosy, well heated and functional. Easy to access the keys, there is a pub within the holiday park, but not much else which was fine as we were happy to largely self cater. The only hiccup was that I assumed linens provided included bath towels, which it oddly doesn't.

We had a great away from it all holiday in Freshwater East. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal. Clean and fully functional. The location is great, just across the road to beautiful Freshwater East beach. Only a short drive to Pembroke and a little further to Tenby which the children loved and it far exceed my expectations. Wild and natural, not unlike North Cornwall but without the mass of people and the price expectations that come with it. Truly memorable and I've come back with hundreds of great photos.

Upgrade Required

  • 2 of 5

When we first arrived and opened the door there was a really strong unpleasant smell, the smell was confined to the downstairs area and no end of air freshener or door openings got rid of this odour.

The mattresses really need to be upgraded, you can feel every spring which led to a fairly restless nights sleep.

The plinth under the Fridge was also hanging off.

On a positive the view from the chalet was magnificent over the bay.

The current condition of the Chalet does not warrant the cost per night but with a bit of upgrading and decorating then this would be an ideal holiday location.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction. The smell is a mystery, which I think must be resolved, as it has not been mentioned by guests who have stayed since. I will attend to the fridge plinth and the mattresses on my next visit.

Clean pleasant inside but small bedrooms.

  • 4 of 5

Clean well laid out property. I thought it was a chalet but was an end terrace property.

Bedrooms very small could not shut main bedroom door as bed in way.

Not impressed with site the shop was poorly stocked every where looked very dated.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. If the beds are correctly aligned the door shuts easily. The shop on-site is poorly stocked because people prefer to do their shopping at the local supermarkets. The site was built in the 1970s but chalet owners are constantly upgrading their properties with pitched roofs and cladding. I think the grounds of the estate are very well maintained.

Nearest Beach
Freshwater East (walking)
Car: recommended

The surrounding area is very beautiful and natural and is protected within the National Parks.

The safe and sandy beach of Freshwater East is a short walk and The Longhouse is on site providing food, drink, shop and equipment for sea activities,

There are many other beaches nearby varying in character from the tranquil Barafundle to the rugged, wild and windswept Freshwater West. Don't miss either!

Walking is very popular with the coast path at hand and the lily ponds at Bosherton nearby.

Fine restaurants are to be found in the two nearest villages of Lamphey and Stackpole, and the pub at the top of the hill, The Freshwater is cheerful and well worth a visit.

The attractive town of Tenby with it's three beaches is a must see,

and you can take a boat ride to Caldey Island with it's working monastery if you wish.

Shopping can be found at the pretty town of Pembroke with it's Norman castle (open daily) and Pembroke Dock. From here you can drive over the toll-bridge to the capital of the county Haverford

West. Just past the toll-bridge is the marina of Neyland built by Brunel and worth a visit!

These are just a few ideas, With the wealth of Castles, Historic houses, Gardens, Beaches and Islands to explore you will not run out of things to do!
