The Old Bakery – sometimes you need to slow down.
The Bakery at historical Paskeston Hall is a superb holiday apartment to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the beautiful countryside and coast of Pembrokeshire in an exclusive secluded location but only a short drive away from all of the main attractions of Pembrokeshire including blue star beaches and some of the most attractive coastline in Britain.
Paskeston Hall is a Georgian Hall but can trace its history back to the 13th Century and has an interesting history. The Hall dates from 1820 being the “modern” extension to an earlier dwelling. Previous visitors included Colonel Laugharne during the English Civil War, Sir Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Harold Abrahams (Chariots of Fire) the Olympian. In the Second World War the Hall hosted German and Italian Officer prisoners of war and we are sure they enjoyed the locality as well.
The accommodation comprises of a downstairs sitting room, dining room and separate kitchen.
The sitting room has comfy sofas, a large flat view TV screen, play station and a generous stock of books and games for those days when you simply don’t want to wander. The adjacent dining room comfortably seats up to six people and the kitchen is equipped with everything you would expect in a modern kitchen including a dish washer and washing machine.
The two bedrooms are spacious and light and the comfortable super king sized beds are equipped with 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, pillow cases, goose feather continental quilts and pillows although synthetic filled pillows can be supplied on request. For unexpected cold spells the beds also have electric blankets. One bedroom has a bathroom with bath and overhead shower and another has a large walk in shower. For larger parties the accommodation can be extended to another very large self-contained en-suite double bedroom in the adjacent main Hall cost linked to the Bakery by a private corridor. There is a supplemental charge for this facility.
Externally there is a small patio area and parking is at the front of the hall.
The property is managed by the owners of the Hall who are happy to share their local knowledge and are dog friendly having four of their own. The owner managers are happy to engage with visitors but the management of the property is welcoming but discreet and unobtrusive.
Visitors are greeted with a welcome starter pack of essentials and a brief familiarisation talk and tour of the property and area.
A stay at Paskeston Hall is unique and visitors are made welcome as if they are “part of the family”. Guests at the Old Bakery may search the shelves of the Georgian library by arrangement and are treated to a complimentary Victorian style High Tea in the elegant dining room. Simple packed lunches to gourmet picnics can be arranged for visitors. For something different, private “one on one” quilting lessons can also be arranged and the resident “Stepford Stichers” stock a huge range of fabrics imported from all over the world.
Interested in military history? The resident Pembroke Fine Arms Company can advise on investment quality historical firearms and militaria and are always happy to discuss military history over a cup of tea or coffee in the library.
Dogs are especially welcome at the Old Bakery and are even catered for in the welcome pack but must remain downstairs and are not allowed in the bedrooms in respect of future guests who may have allergies. Your first dog is free and additional dogs are charged at £25 per week. Both the bakery and the main hall are strictly non-smoking but of course you can smoke in the grounds outside.
The property is found midway between the villages of Cosheston and Milton and is a short drive away from some of the most breath taking coast and beaches that Pembroke has to offer such as Barafundle Bay and Marloes sands. There are two local farm shops and traditional butchers in Milton and a visitor friendly local pub in both Milton and Cosheston which are both one mile equidistant from the accommodation. If you are seeking more cosmopolitan dining, the busy little fishing port of Tenby is only a ten minute drive away and the owners have tried most of the restaurants in the area and will freely offer their advice. The 21st Century arrived in Pembrokeshire in the past decade and Pembroke Dock now boasts a Tesco store, Asda and even McDonalds.
For the perfect family holiday the property is situated less than a 10 minute drive from the award winning Bluestone leisure complex with its huge indoor water theme park adjacent to the Oakwood theme park with some of the most knuckling whitening rides in Britain (so we are told - we won’t go near them). Also within a 10 minute drive is Heatherton and Oakwood theme parks, Manor House Wildlife Park, Great Wedlock Dinosaur Experience, Folly Farm and much more.
Rest assured that this is our only letting unit so if you want a peaceful time away from children you will not be disturbed by other holiday maker’s children and if conversely you do not want to worry about a large population and the safety of your children this is similarly catered for.
Holidays in Pembrokeshire can be informal and laid back and the flora and fauna can be breath taking from Puffins at Skomer to Dolphins in the Ramsey Sound. The woods at Paskeston Hall have resident Woodpeckers, Tree crawlers, Buzzards and a busy Badger Set and it is unusual not to see Badgers in Paskeston Lane at night. Paskeston Hall is an ideal base to consider coastal walks, Castle tours, fishing, ornithology or simply relaxing on quiet unspoiled beaches and the owners are happy to share their experience on any of these activities to make your well-earned break as enjoyable and stress free as you would wish.
The additional accommodation linked by a private corridor is available for a supplemental £200 a week.
