The property has recently been lovingly restored to its former glory, combining the best of traditional materials and craftsmanship with the best of new green technologies. The result oozes charm, quality and efficiency. Potterslade is the embodiment of ancient and modern and living proof that the best of both worlds is still possible here in Pembrokeshire.
No expense has been spared in breathing new life into Potterslade and recreating that unique sense of place that you will feel when you step inside. Potterslade reflects understated quality and a homely ambiance – yours to see and feel: traditional lime plastered interior walls; oak-beamed ceilings; oak inglenook fireplaces; multi-fuel stoves; slate floors that are warm to walk on fuelled by new technology air source under floor heating; luxury leather suites that are just perfect for unwinding and; all the best of contemporary kitchen and bathroom facilities and state of the art HD TV, DVD and WI FI technologies that you’d expect.
Step out into a timeless world and breathe in this magical sense of place. Look back on to the cottage with its date inscription and traditional lime mortar pointed exterior; look out over the old farm buildings, the cart house, the barn, the threshing barn – all remnants of a bygone era. You might even catch a glimpse of a Barn Owl in the historic stone farm buildings. Look about, or wander into the lawned areas and beyond into the surrounding meadows. Look further – it’s all yours to enjoy for as long as you stay.
Playtime at Potterslade
Playtime is not just for kids at Potterslade but for everyone young at heart. For children, Potterslade provides ample space for safe outside play and adventure in the haggard, garden and yard which are all laid out to lawns for ball games. The smooth concrete area around the farmhouse provides a platform for scooters and trikes for the little ones, whilst the private lane and yard provide stress-free, traffic-free cycling for children a little more independent.
The private grounds at Potterslade provide acres of space for children to grow and for a 15ft diameter trampoline, a six piece swing set and every manner of ball game, including croquet.
If croquet is considered too active, then there is opportunity at Potterslade to wander the paths and take in the glorious surroundings. Or enjoy the vistas eating al fresco on the terrace, complete with 3 burner calor gas BBQs, parasols and quality patio furnishings. Or, simply sit back and drink in the glorious Potterslade sunset.
For families and groups of friends who wish to find space together or relax apart, Potterslade provides the ideal options. The property has been cleverly and flexibly configured to provide accommodation for up to 12 people and offers 6 double and twin bedrooms all with en suite facilities.
However, should you wish, the property can be split into 2 smaller completely self-contained properties (The Good Looks and Ha’Penny Pool) each with its own entrance, each with its own kitchen and with the option of opening up or closing off the interconnecting door as necessary. That’s clever!
Whatever you decide, we guarantee a big welcome and the unique Potterslade experience that will have you coming back time and time again.
Go a little further
Though Potterslade feels like a million miles from anywhere, set in its own private land, along a country lane, deep in the heart of Pembrokeshire, it is conveniently situated less than 1 mile from the historic village of Llawhaden complete with ruined castle and less than 2 miles off the A40, so just a step from all the attractions the county is famed for.
