Well-appointed holiday cottage letting business with substantial Victorian manor house and picturesque nature reserve, on the edge of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Rosemoor Country Cottages
Rosemoor comprises a courtyard development of nine traditional stone cottages, converted from former outbuildings, which are operated as year-round holiday letting accommodation. The current owners have developed the property over the course of the past 25 years, which now presents an opportunity for a new owner to carry the business forward.
The cottages vary in size and layout but all are finished to a high standard, almost all with underfloor heating and log burning stoves, offering comfortable and spacious holiday accommodation for up to a maximum of 34 guests in total.
To the rear of the courtyard is a walled garden laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and cottage garden with greenhouse situated to the northern boundary.
All but two of the cottages have direct access into the garden, however it can be enjoyed by all guests during their stay.
This impressive Victorian manor house is situated to the rear of the holiday cottages and benefits from a private driveway leading to the property. It is the ancestral home of the Summers family who resided at the property in the mid 1800’s and was re-modelled in 1870, extending out to both the front and the rear of the building. The building is full of character and charm, with many original features throughout. An impressive main hallway, with period tiled flooring opens into the building, leading through to the various rooms as can be seen on the detailed floor plan.
The current owners implemented a restoration project to
maintain the structural integrity of the building and preserve
features the house enjoys. An opportunity now exists for a
future owner to incorporate their own ideas and complete the
renovation, of which much of the remaining work involves
modernisation and redecoration.
The ground floor provides dining and living accommodation
together with a toilet, two kitchens (one currently under
reconstruction) which lead to a scullery with new storage
facilities and a larder room. To the first floor a turned central
staircase provides access to five bedrooms, a dressing room
and family bathroom. The house also has an impressive vaulted cellar.
Games Room, Laundry & Kitchen
Adjoining the main house with external guest access, a communal space providing a large open room with table-tennis play equipment, laundry with washing machine and dryer and small kitchenette. The facilities are also accessible internally via a staircase from the main house.
Workshop, Log store and Boiler room
Situated to the entrance to the property of timber construction providing a workshop/maintenance area, log store and housing for the Biomass boiler and pellet store.
All of the above properties are within the red boundary on the land plan.
Rosemoor Nature Reserve
Rosemoor Nature Reserve was created by the former owner of Rosemoor in 1978 on a separate parcel of land extending to about 28.8 acres, delineated in blue on the boundary plan.
There are three access points to the reserve, the nearest one via a pedestrian gate to the North of Rosemoor, about 200m distant. It is a botanists paradise having a lake spanning 4.4 acres, formed by the damming of a stream and being a haven for a variety of wildlife including badgers, otters and also birds including mallard, coot, moorhens, Canadian geese, kingfisher and a pair of mute swans to name but a few and peregrine falcons have been spotted within the area. A meadow was created in spring 2007 for Welsh ponies to graze, which helps to maintain the biodiversity.
Various paths have been created around the nature reserve. Interlinking with those of the National Park to include two public footpaths and one permissive path to the right of the meadow, all of which are maintained by National Park Rangers. The reserve is within the blue boundary on the land plan.
