Refusal recommended for glamping and tea room proposal at Hazelbeach

A glamping and tea room proposal for Hazelbeach is recommended for refusal by county planners.

Members of Pembrokeshire County Council’s planning committee will decide the application at Point House at its meeting on Tuesday, July 28.

The proposal for a tea room and glamping site featuring shepherd huts overlooking the Cleddau is recommended for refusal due to the increased amount of traffic generated on an “inadequate” road.

The plan for Point House, at the end of Llanstadwell village includes alterations and extensions, as well as a new stable block, garden equipment store and car parking for 10 vehicles.

A design and access statement in support of the application states that the owner’s “vision” is to “create an exclusive relaxing retreat for tourists” in a “unique setting consisting of six luxury shepherd’s huts affording fantastic views of the estuary.”

The tea room would be used to offer breakfast for guests as well as locals and walkers.

The shepherd huts would be located in the large terraced garden of the property, at a lower level to Point House and its neighbour, with the stable block and car parking to the rear.

A report o Tuesday’s meeting states that the development of tourism businesses at the site meetings planning policy but there is considered to be a “detrimental impact on highway safety.”
