Welsh seas and beaches may not be at their most inviting in the depths of winter, but they can be at their most spectacular – particularly when surveyed from the heights of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. One of the most stunning sections of this justifiably famous track is accessible within five minutes’ walk of Glebe House (the stretch from Marloes to Broad Haven is often cited as the highlight of the 870-mile path around the entire Welsh coast).
And while the puffins may be absent, wildlife lovers can enjoy a wealth of winter migrants – particularly Arctic waders and waterfowl with Marloes Mere and the reed beds near Dale particular hotspots. Also, don’t forget too the unlimited seasoned oak firewood. The house has two wood burning stoves and relaxing in front of a blazing log fire with a warming drink is the perfect way to unwind after a bracing day on the coast.
Glebe House is also at its most affordable between late October and early April, with weekly rents of £600 – or £75 per person. Unfortunately while some discounts may be applicable, the logistics of changeovers, heating etc mean the weekly price cannot be reduced greatly. Normally lets are from Saturday to Saturday, but during the low season there is scope for much greater flexibility – most notably in the form of long weekends (eg Thursday to Monday).
