AN IMPRESSIVE PERIOD COUNTRY HOUSE PROVIDING ELEGANT AND WELL PROPORTIONED ACCOMMODATION WITH SIZEABLE MATURE GROUNDS CLOSE TO THE STUNNING NATIONAL PARK COASTLINE

GENERAL
Portclew is a small historic "Conservation" hamlet at the approach to Freshwater East within the stunning southern section of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It is about midway between the sandy beach and the village of Lamphey (around a mile to each) which has an excellent range of amenities. The historic town of Pembroke is about three miles and the picturesque resort of Tenby is approx. nine miles.

The impressive chateau-style Upper Portclew House provides well proportioned accommodation on four levels. The original House is apparently Georgian and it has Victorian additions although there are records of farming at Upper Portclew from 1595.

There are sea and coastal views from the upper floors. Upper Portclew House is a fine family home but, subject to consent, it has various potential including as an up market Guest House perhaps incorporating a Restaurant and/or Tearooms.
