Newport is still one of Pembrokeshire’s gems – not yet fallen down the well-heeled slippery slope. One narrow main street has interesting shops and restaurants, crowded side streets all hugger-mugger and a cockerel of a castle overlooking the village, magic beaches and small boat inlets. This modern house sits among the old but rises above the roof tops giving 180-degree views of the coast, sea and sky from daybreak to sunset. Big groups of family or close friends will enjoy long days out hiking (the coastal path can be joined in either direction from the beach) painting (people travel here for the lovely light) or pootling about on one of the loveliest beaches in the UK. Mucky boots, sandy wet suits and boards can be stored in the garage, there’s bags of hot water in modern, efficient bathrooms and a large island in the kitchen is just right for cracking open a bottle of wine and chatting while supper is bubbling. A wood-burner belts out the heat in the sitting room and there’s plenty of space for everybody to slump without feeling cramped. You’ve also got a garden, terrace and parking space – gold dust.
