St Florence

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4


The quiet and pretty village of St. Florence is blessed by an attractive woodland river walk, spectacular views of the Ridgeway, and a 12th Century Norman Church. In the heart of the village there is a primary school, a convenience store and two dining pubs. There is also a garden centre with a highly regarded restaurant, and a village hall. St. Florence is a thriving and friendly community which organises various recreational activities and social events throughout the year.

The village lies close to the southern section of the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Several spectacular sandy beaches and stunning walks are within a few minutes drive. Nearby are facilities such as the Manor House Wildlife Park and Heatherton Activities Centre. St. Florence is about 4 miles from the picturesque towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot.

Fiddlers Lane is possibly the most sought after location in St. Florence. Bear Cottage is situated 200 metres down this quiet no-through lane, down which are a small number of prestigious and exceptional homes. The location adjoins fields on the northern edge of the village yet is only a short walk from all its amenities.

Bear Cottage is enclosed by sizeable and secluded gardens and it is particularly well separated from other houses. It was custom-built to a high standard in 2009 and has been finished with careful attention to detail. It consequently combines a cottage exterior with a modern specification and an interior that is particularly spacious and light. It features a character slate roof, stone chimney, sash windows and an attractive porch. Inside there are Iroko hardwood doors and other high quality fittings.

Bear Cottage would be ideal for a family. The house and grounds are easily manageable and would therefore also suit retirees.
