Getting Out: Rentals & Hires

Have you looked at hiring transport for your stay?

Depending on how you’re planning on travelling to Milford Haven you may want to hire transport whilst you’re here.

Despite being just a small town you’ll find there are plenty of businesses here that you can hire transport from; whether you’re looking to hire a boat to explore the rest of the waterway, a kayak to discover the harder to reach corners of the area or simply a car to get you from one tourist attraction to the other. Whilst hiring survey equipment like the Trimble TX6 will no doubt prove to be something of a challenge, you should have no problem finding what you need in terms of transport right here in Milford Haven.

The following businesses are well established and have been noted for their customer services:

Pembrokeshire Cruising

If you’re not 100% confident in your sailing skills then you’ll have the opportunity to brush up on them with the help of Roland Bowen and his crew of experienced sailing instructors. Having launched his company in 1994, Roland’s team offers a variety of courses all designed to give you the knowledge and confidence to lead your own sailing excursions. Their RYA approved sailing courses range from 2-day training weekends to full blown week-long courses that take you from complete novice to a competent crew member.

Hotel Stays For Special Times

Enjoy a luxury experience for your next holiday in Milford Haven

Continuing our series of posts detailing where you can stay in the Milford Haven region we turn our attention to hotels (rather than B&Bs) that offer outstanding value and a touch of class to holiday makers looking for that sort of thing.

A good night’s sleep is absolutely essential when it comes to enjoying your holiday and for that to happen most people need to be given a certain level of comfort. Of course, when we’re on our holidays we like to treat ourselves to a luxury experience that surpasses our own rooms at home. When you’re paying upwards of £50 per night for a room you expect to be treated well and that means a bed that still feels new, fresh sheets and a general fresh feeling that makes one feel as if they’re the first to stay there.

After a series of brief stays in the following places we have deemed the following places to be of a good standard. Subsequent research on popular reviews sites has confirmed that they uphold this level of service throughout the seasons:

Lord Nelson

We understand that certain tourists might balk at the notion of sleeping above a pub, but this doesn’t necessarily have to be bad thing, especially when you consider the comfort and value that is on offer at the Lord Nelson. Once visited by the actual Lord Nelson, the Grade II listed pub was refurbished in 2016 and offers visitors to Milford Haven comfortable rooms in an ideal location on the harbour. Food is served there daily and the bar is one of the most popular locations in the town.

How much? From £77 per night for a double room

Beggars Reach Hotel

Follow Milford Haven inland until it becomes Cleddau Ddu and then take a left turn up Priest’s Lake to discover Beggars Reach Hotel, an immaculately presented hotel run by Gill and William, a happily married couple of 28 years and proud workers of the hospitality industry for nearly 40 years. Although this lovely hotel is set a fair way back from the Milford Haven Waterway, it offers comfort and tranquillity that you are unlikely to find at some of the busier establishments closer on the harbour.

How much? From £135 per night for a double room (breakfast included)
Telephone: 01646 600700
Address: Beggars Reach Hotel
Nr. Milford Haven

Slebech Park Country Estate

A journey down the peaceful Cleddau Ddu will once more be required should you wish you spend the night at the majestic Slebech Park. Connected to the main waterway via number of smaller rivers, this is the ideal country retreat for holiday makers looking for that extra special touch of luxury. With buildings dating back to the 11th century, staying at Slebech Country Park is like stepping back into time – you can even take part in activities whilst you’re there like shooting, water safari and wood turning.

How much? From £95 per night for a double room
