Sutton Lodge is an elegant Georgian Mansion dating back to the 1700s and mentioned in Francis Jones' Historic Pembrokeshire Homes. Set in approximately 4.25 acres of grounds incorporating formal lawns, woodland, meadow and a walled garden. The house is of generous proportions and has previously been used as a country hotel and restaurant and also an equestrian facility. The property has undergone comprehensive and extensive regeneration since 2007.

The main house has 7 double bedrooms (5 en-suite), 7 bathrooms and a superb 17m L-shaped lounge and orangery. Accessed from one side is a self-contained one bedroom duplex apartment, ideal for staff quarters or an independent family member.

The property is located on the outskirts of Haverfordwest within the unspoilt rural landscape of Pembrokeshire. The property is ideally located to access both the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline, with its fine beaches, underwater marine park and coastal path and the Preseli hills, famous for providing the blue stones of Stonehenge.

The extensive and spacious accommodation briefly comprises; a grand entrance/dining hall, formal lounge, orangery, study, day room/library, kitchen/dining room, utility room, shower room and cloakroom to the ground floor with master bedroom suite (with superb contemporary bathroom and balcony) to the first floor, a family bathroom and a further 6 bedrooms (4 ensuite), two of which have access to the terrace. The 1 bedroom annexe has an open plan lounge/kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
