From the moment you turn into the lane leading to The Old Anchor, you are in eager anticipation of what lies ahead and below. The winding driveway through beautiful woodland culminates in the arrival at a spectacle to behold!
Idyllically nestled between the foreshore and rising woodland to the rear, sits a charming 4 bedroomed cottage. Surrounded by beautiful grounds that include a cottage walled garden and mature specimen trees, planted many years ago by the vendor's father, the property extends to approximately 40 acres in total including an extended area along the shoreline of The Cleddau river.
An old Weigh House now used as a summer house and cosy winter snug is located on an historic quay, on the very edge of the estuary in which the property has its own mooring off the quay. From here one can enjoy the ever changing views up and down the shore – it's a perfect haven for boaters, fishermen, wildlife enthusiasts and walkers.
The local village of Hook with a junior school, post office and shop as well as a cricket club, is only few minute's walk away. The county town of Haverfordwest with a full range of amenities, including supermarkets and large department stores, as well as restaurants is a mere 10 minute drive away.
Extensive renovation has taken place to include the lining and insulation of all the floors, providing a warm, damp free environment. There are three ways to provide heating as the cottage is well equipped with two multi fuel log burners, an oil fired central heating system with radiators in each room, and an electric back up with night storage heaters.
