Rosendale, Lydstep

Rosendale, Lydstep
Rosendale near Lydstep is one of our newest satellite houses. It opened at the end of June 2012 after eight months of renovation to convert it to a very high standard home for four people.

The property consists of four en-suite bedrooms, two with distant sea views and two with views of rolling Welsh hills. There is a very large lounge, a teaching area/second lounge, kitchen/dining area, front and rear garden and separate staff entrance and facilities.

The service users who currently live here are from Gibraltar,
Pembrokeshire and Cheshire. They spend a proportion of the week utilising the facilities and expertise of Bangeston Hall. In time we hope to develop a number of on-site facilities at Rosendale itself.

In addition to the main house, there is a bungalow in the grounds which we converted at the request of Pembrokeshire Council for a young man in need of purpose built accommodation. This meant he was able to stay around Tenby and close to his family instead of having to leave the county.

About Lydstep

Lydstep is a small village about four miles to the west of Tenby on the road to Pembroke and is easily accessed by road or frequent bus services. Local businesses include a garden centre, the Celtic Haven and its spa guest houses, local shop and of course the Lydstep Tavern. Lydstep also contains the ruins of a bishop's palace visible from the road. Although called a palace, it is understood to have been the hunting seat of Lord St David in the early 14th century.

The local population is boosted every year by guests at the local caravan parks taking advantage of the beautiful location and sand and pebble beach. Lydstep Beach, or ‘Lydstep Haven’ as it is sometimes called, has the wooded cliffs of Lydstep Point and Proud Giltar at either end. At the north end of the beach there is a small sandy area exposed at low tide. The excellent quality of water is popular for swimming, paddling, jet skiing, water skiing, scuba diving and parascending. Being on the route of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, there are miles of walks available in all directions from the beach.
