An amazing property in a stunning part of the world.
Mr Callaghan April 2022
We had a lovely, friendly welcome from the owners. Wonderful period details and fascinating history of renovation. Comfortable and warm and the hot tub great.
The area is out of the way with amazing walks along the coastal path. The walk down to St Brides worth the lovely cove.
We recommend Sunshine italian restaurant in Broad Haven. We booked a window table to catch the sunset over the beach. Excellent food here. We also ate very well at the National Trust cafe in Marloes.

If you want the WOW factor then this is the place to go. The accommodation is amazing with so much history to look at as the renovation has been kept in keeping with the 1940's and leaves you feeling very proud of our English heratige . John and Jane (the proprietors ) are such a lovely couple and make you feel very welcome. They have a wealth of knowledge on the history of the 'Officers Quarters' and are so willing and passionate to share, which I have to say is extremely interesting. We will definitely be returning for another stay as soon as we can. This place is a must.
MRS MEATES February 2022
We had a very enjoyable break within the officers quarters. All facilities were to a high standard including the very enjoyable hot tub which we used every night in all weathers. It was also fascinating to stay in a period (1942) building used in the defence of our country. The area is well known to us, but this unique location was very special; the hosts Jane and John were also very helpful and welcoming.

This property was an excellent find. Being ex-military, the name Officers’ Quarters attracted us and we were not disappointed. Originally a war time secret RAF radar station that reverted to farm buildings after the war but was then lovingly restored and refurbished by its present owners, John and Jane. The property houses two holiday lets, an art gallery and the bulk of the building gradually being developed as a museum honouring its wartime role.The holiday lets have been refurbished retaining the period authenticity but incorporating modern living standards. The building was airy, warm and cozy, the perfect place to quietly relax and chill out.
Within walking distance is a small safe beach renowned as being the warmest sea water for swimming along this part of the coast. Driving north around St Bride’s Bay are Little Haven, Broad Haven, Newgale, Solva and St Davids, all within easy reach. Alternatively moving south through country lanes are villages and sandy beaches, castles and pools, all with unique history.
The hosts were most welcoming and friendly, genuinely interested in providing something different as a great holiday location. They succeeded and we have no hesitation in recommending Officers Quarters.
Mr Thompson September 2021
Officers' Quarters and its neighbour must be unique conversions of part of a WW2 radar station, retaining a vintage feel with the furnishings, decor and pictures but with all mod-cons. Close to the scenic Pembrokeshire coastline, this is in a great location too. Definitely recommended.
Mrs Lewis August 2021
A very special property in a quiet and peaceful location (August Bank holiday week!) Charming and helpful owners who take great pride in making sure their clients are happy. They even supplied extra equipment, a bistro set for the patio, during our stay. Welcome sherry added to the atmosphere of this unusual property. This is a beautiful area of the Pembrokeshire coast, giving excellent access on quiet roads to lovely coastal villages. (40 minutes to St. Davids, 15 minutes to Dale. Nearby Little Haven is beautiful). Coastal walking is matchless and 20 minutes across the fields brings you straight onto the coast path via a tiny bay. All in all, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and to return to the Officers’ Quarters.

Officers' Quarters is not the usual holiday cottage and is all the better for it. John and Jane, the friendly owners, have clearly spent a great deal of love and care in restoring the property, getting a good balance of 1940s authenticity and modern facilities. We are a family of four (inc two teenagers) and would definitely recommend it for people looking to stay somewhere a little different from the norm without sacrificing comfort - the beds are very comfy!
It's in a great location with St Brides Haven close by - perfect for a morning or evening swim - as well as Dale, Marloes and St Martins Haven and the headland overlooking Skomer. We stayed there in mid August and saw loads of seals and pups in the coves round the headland. Also handy are Little Haven and Broad Haven - we would recommend the burgers at Sand and Stone Kitchen in Broad Haven.
Mrs Bridden July 2021
We had the perfect stay at the Officers Quarters. It has been renovated with love and care and the attention to detail makes it a truly unique place to stay.
Everything is provided to make it a home from home. We enjoyed many family meals here, relaxed in the tranquility of the patio and slept better than ever in the comfort of the bedrooms. However, it's the charm and history of the place that bring the magic ingredients.
There owners are incredibly welcoming and genuine in wanting to make our stay as perfect as possible.
Finally, the area itself...WOW....what stunning coastlines and beaches. We can't wait to come back and explore more.
Mr John July 2021
Officers' Quarters is like stepping back 80 years - but with better plumbing and kitchen facilities. There's a real loving eye for detail in how the property has been restored, and it's incredibly welcoming and comfortable.
The place has a real wow factor, and my two kids and I had a fantastic time. Would recommend to anyone.
Oh, and there's a lovely beach 3/4 of a mile's walk away down a country lane.
