Remote and unspoilt, the Pembrokeshire peninsula – at the southwest corner of Wales – must surely rank among Europe’s most magnificent and varied coastlines. Here you’ll find St Brides Castle, the restoration of which earned the Bond a Prince of Wales Award for Architecture. Set in 99 acres of mature parkland, the fine 19th century baronial country mansion was re-styled in 1833, at the whim of the fourth Lord Kensington. As a result, its castellated outline reflects the eccentricity common among the wealthy landowners of the time.



The estate’s long sweeping drive is flanked by pastures, which- on the seaward side – run down to a small haven. There are spectacular views from the east side of the house, out across St. Brides Bay and the Irish Sea. At the northeast corner of the grounds, at the edge of St. Brides Haven, stands the tiny church of St. Bridgets.The castle itself offers 22 self-contained apartments of varying sizes, plus reception rooms, a billiards room, library and family room all of which are available for use by resident Bondholders.It also contains a splendid indoor swimming pool.  There are also 29 cottages and apartments within the grounds. The attractive furnishings are up to the Bond’s usual high standards: each property has a DVD player and television (the site also has a free DVD library).


Exclusive holidays for life

An initial payment from £5,000 and a quarterly fee of under £38 (that is around £150 a year), which can increase in line with but not exceed the Retail Price Index Excluding Mortgage Interest (RPIX), gives you access to all HPB’s holiday homes. For each HPB holiday, you will pay a no-profit user charge covering only property running and maintenance costs and use of on-site facilities. The average charge is the same throughout the year, and for a studio is around £360 a week and £540 for a two bedroom property. Larger properties are also available. After an initial charge of 25% your money is invested in a fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself meets annual charges of 2.5% of its net assets at cost, calculated monthly. Your investment return is purely in the form of holidays and, as with most investments, your capital is at risk. You can surrender your investment to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances) but you will get back less than you invested because of the charges referred to above, as well as other overheads and changes in the value of the fund’s properties and securities.
