About Alison Perry

Alison and Philip Perry, along with their three daughters welcome you to stay in The Boathouse.

We are both local, and have lived and worked in Pembrokeshire all our lives.

We were fortunate enough to be able to build The Boathouse in 2007, and have lived in the property for the past 5 years. However the arrival of twin daughters means we have now outgrown it. We have rented a larger house locally and intend to expand The Boathouse in the future to accommodate us.

We very much hope you will come and enjoy our property. Thank you The Perry's.

Alison Perry purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Alison Perry chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

The Boathouse is a unique retreat in Freshwater East, nestling in the dunes with views of the sandy beach and sea. Coastal walks and breathtaking scenery on your doorstep. Why not bring your boat and explore the coastline, with access and slipway from the beach. Much to explore in the area such as Stackpole Quay, Bosherston Lily Ponds and Barafundle Bay. Pembroke town with its historic castle, pubs, restaurants and shops. All within a short drive. Tenby is 15 minutes away

What makes this cottage unique

A very short stroll along a sandy path to the lovely beach.

Panoramic views of the bay & the sea makes sitting by the log burner all you need to do on a winters day.

Beautiful architect designed property.

Large enclosed patio, safe for children.

Quality furnishings.

2 weeks at The Boathouse

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely holiday at the Boathouse in Freshwater East. We know the area well so it was lovely to stay the other side of the bay! The easy access to the beach made it brilliant for my 5 yr old grandaughter and 2 yr old grandson as well as us 4 adults and the 2 dogs. The house is lovely, with all mod cons and is very comfortable.

My husband was especially happy because he saw the Choughs in the field above the house - the perfect end to the holiday in his opinion!

Thank you Alison and Phil for a really great holiday (even the weather wasn't too bad - we had plenty of quality beach time). Hope to return in the future, if you'll have us!!

Perfect place to get away, relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Lovely relaxing week at The Boathouse. Comfy beds, hot powerful shower, great open plan living/dining/kitchen area and very clean. Welcome pack was a nice touch. Home from home. Great location close to the beautiful sandy beach which wasn't too busy in July so able to play rounders with the kids. Location good for trips out, we loved exploring Pembroke Castle. Thank you

A lovely bright, comfortable and warm house

  • 5 of 5

Having the best of the weather in April we loved the close proximity of the beach, great walks with the dog when the tide was out, covering the entire length of Freshwater East, people we met were friendly, most also with dogs too. The outside garden furniture was comfortable and in use for five days of our week, amazingly lucky, lunch and evening drinks in the sun, blissful. The king size bed was super comfortable, the shower excellent. The kitchen had all the essentials although the microwave seemed to have a mind of it's own but was manageable just for heating 'stuff' 'The outside area was safe for both children and dogs being enclosed with wrap around fencing.

Alison Perry is a lovely lady, kind and very helpful when we needed her. We have no hesitation in recommending 'The Boathouse' for a fantastic beach holiday for everyone.

Cedric, Doreen not forgetting Bryn
