The property is situated on the southern edge of the hamlet of Welsh Hook, about 2 miles west from the larger village of Wolf's Castle and the A40 providing quick and easy access to neighbouring towns including Fishguard to the north (about 8 miles) with national rail services and ferry service to Ireland, and Haverfordwest to the south (about 9 miles) again with national rail services and a small airport. The A40 continues eastwards to the town of Carmarthen and the A48 M4 link road (about 38 miles) taking you onto South Wales (Swansea about 65 miles), Cardiff (about 105 miles), the Severn Bridge and beyond. Stone Hall enjoys a perfect location in order to explore and appreciate all that the county has to offer with its famous Pembrokeshire Coast National park close at hand with the rugged Preseli Mountains to the north and the miles of award winning beaches and coastal paths.

Description

Stone Hall is a stunning Grade II Listed Pembrokeshire Hall with original parts thought to date c.15th century with later additions in the c.1700s. According to the book 'Historic Pembrokeshire Homes and their families' by Francis Jones, Wales Herald at Arms: "Stone Hall provides an example of a traditional residence of the older Welsh gentry, and fortunately has escaped the fate that overtook so many country houses in Pembrokeshire, mainly during the 19th century when they were transformed from modest, but adequate, accommodation into grand edifices which by today have become too burdensome to maintain..." The book goes on to say that it is believed that the property was "built for accommodating the household of a country gentleman mainly occupied with estate and farming concerns and local administration..." and adds that "Throughout, the rooms are commodious, low-ceilinged, with massive oak beams..." The book records that even in 1858 "...it was described as a place of great antiquity..."

Throughout its history the property has undergone a number of additions and changes and was previously used as a country house hotel before the current owners. In recent years the current owners have made extensive sympathetic refurbishments and renovations including significant roof insulation and the reintroduction of traditional lime plaster. They have refurbished large parts of the major reception rooms in a manner which blends seamlessly into the original fabric. In addition the owners have invested significantly in renewable energy to ensure the Hall is as efficient as possible, by installing a wood-fired boiler system, photovoltaic electricity cells and solar hot water panels. The property is set in idyllic and extensive mature grounds with an impressive original walled garden, a detached cottage and a range of useful outbuildings. In all, the property extends to about 7.8 acres (stms) subject to measured survey.
