Quirky house with a hot tub in Pembrokeshire: Take a trip back in time with a stay at our lovingly restored former WWII military building. Just a mile from the beach this is a truly unique and special retreat for two, plus your beloved pooch!


This quirky Second World War building has been carefully transformed into a cosy, coastal hideaway.

The characterful interiors echo the captivating history of this eccentric hideaway. A warm atmosphere fills each room with a comfortable mix of historic features and modern-day comforts. We promise you; you will have never experienced a stay like this before! It's definitely off-the-well-worn-path and of course, a little bit special.

Step Inside

Sleeping two guests this hideaway is idyllic for a romantic break away and your dog is also warmly welcomed. There's a double bedroom with a king-sized bed, perfect for long lazy lie-ins. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare delicious, indulgent meals and you also have the option of lighting the barbecue and dining alfresco! The sunroom can be accessed from the patio which has wonderful far reaching rural views. The perfect spot to enjoy a 'sundowner'. With a small dining table, armchairs, atmospheric lamp lighting and coal effect fire, this space makes a perfect addition to your holiday experience.


Enjoy cosy moments by the wood-burner or outside around the fire pit, as the stars light up the night sky. Or why not pour yourself a glass of bubbles and sink into the hot tub and unwind after a day full of adventures. The patio transforms into the most dreamlike setting at night. With the fairy lights lit, the fire pit roaring and the hot tub bubbling, you will find yourself in a magical haven, a whole world away from everyday life. Officers' Mess is the perfect year-round coastal retreat with an abundance of unique charm that you are sure to fall in love with.


Pembrokeshire provides the most magical base for your holiday. Uncover exquisite coastlines, rolling surf, tumbling hills and fairy tale landscapes. Few places offer such immense variety as Pembrokeshire. Rich in history, diverse in culture, with overwhelming beauty, sparkling seas, and natural landscapes, rated by National Geographic magazine as the second-best coastline in the world. You're in for a timeless treat.

Located in the midst of the Pembrokeshire coast, there are so many glorious beaches to explore. The tiny, sheltered cove of St Brides Haven is just down the road and the magnificent Marloes Sands is less than five miles away. Ramblers will be in heaven as the coastal path is accessible by foot, down a farm track to Mill Haven, a tiny cove frequently visited by seals. The Coastal Path meanders above craggy coves, stretches of golden sandy beaches and through idyllic seaside villages, perfect for pub lunches or traditional cafes en route. Or you may like to take a trip up the coast to St Davids to soak up the relaxed vibe and mystical presence. Visit the majestic Cathedral, galleries, and boutique shops or for surfers, popular Whitesands Beach is close by. The closest seaside villages are Little Haven and Broad Haven, where you can find a well- stocked supermarket with a bakery, a Post Office, beach shop, cafes, pubs, and restaurants.

The sheltered anchorage of Dale is four miles up the road, a paradise for those who love water sports. Try paddle boarding or windsurfing, a tasty lunch in the award-winning Griffin Inn or just relax and unwind in the fresh sea air. Try surfing at West Dale or Newgale. And for that extra special day, a boat trip to Skomer Island from nearby St Martins Haven is an absolute 'must do'
