Globe House is many things to many people and delivers them all with a certain style. After extensive renovation, Sally Dickerson and the team here are now welcoming larger groups on an exclusive use, self-catered basis. Joyous family celebrations, annual get togethers, tipsy reunions or a week of catching up with close friends are all part of the fabric in this iconic house. There’s plenty of space to accommodate up to 24 guests, all in sparkling new en-suite bedrooms and loads of elegant yet cosy rooms to dine and chill together.
The contemporary interior design blends sympathetically into the long (and sometimes chequered) history of a house that has a genuine story to tell. The centrepiece feature, a stunning exposed wrought iron staircase, hints at the stylish makeover within. There are eight spacious bedrooms or suites, all en-suite, with the option of different bed configurations that allow the house to easily swallow up several families in glamorous comfort. The smart modern bathrooms have indulgent underfloor heating, monsoon showers and the master bedroom even has a deep tub with a view over surrounding fields. Outside there’s a large lawn for the children, a sheltered BBQ area and a deluxe eight-person hot tub – perfect for stargazing. Best of all, at the top of a broad oak staircase and hidden behind the castellated walls, there’s a very private rooftop terrace, ideal for whiling away a few hours with a novel or surveying the village and surrounding fields from a unique position. The picture postcard perfect West Angle Bay is just a few minutes walk, with its sparkling rockpools, golden sand and safe swimming – it’s a great place to hide away from the holiday crowds and blow away the cobwebs. East Angle Bay is moments away, safe harbour for boats and kayaks. Angle is a stage stop on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path – walk 17 miles to St Govans (via the famous Freshwater West beach) or 11 to Pembroke, catch the Puffin Coastal Cruiser bus back! The ferry terminal for Ireland is only half an hour away and if you fancy a faster paced short break, Tenby’s bustling nightlife and vast array of restaurants and bars is easily within reach. Ideally situated, with a truly 5-star holiday experience for families and groups, Globe House should be on your shortlist.
