Haven Pods

Brunel Quay, Pembrokeshire, Wales

Eco-friendly, floating cabins for 2+2 within Neyland Yacht Haven marina, surrounded by woodland of the Coastal National Park.

Show Availability

Haven Pods are eco-friendly, floating pods for 2+2 within the Neyland Yacht Haven Marina in Pembrokeshire. They were built using ethically sourced balau and cedar wood and offers stunning views across the water.

Location

The pods are located in Neyland Yacht Haven marina which is near Pembroke Dock. The pods are therefore surrounded by yachts and the tree-lined creek offers a peaceful surrounding. They are located within the UK's only coastal National Park, therefore the area offers beautiful scenery and an abundance of wildlife, as well as plenty of outdoor activities including cycling, fishing and bird watching.

The Pods

There are two Haven Pods. 1) The Haven Pod and, 2) The Haven Pod+.

Both cabins consist of a comfortable double bed, pull out sofa bed for 2 small children, a kitchenette and foldaway dining table and chairs. Both pods also have an outside decked area with seating and excellent views. The Pod+ is slightly larger than the Pod and is, therefore, better suited if travelling with children.

The Pods have heating but they are extremely well-insulated and double glazed, so the heating is rarely required!

The pods have full electric including USB charging, free Wi-Fi and a TV.

Facilities

Modern and clean bathroom facilities are available in the main building which is just up the main pontoon access ramp (about 30 steps away). These include lovely showers (check out the reviews on Airbnb as guests do not mind the 30 step walk to enjoy our modern washrooms).

Free on-site parking. Bike hire is on-site with the Brunel Trail passing your front door! Launderette also on-site. No pets, including no dogs (sorry!).
