The earliest mention of Priory Stile found in local records is around 1800, although the property, originally a terrace of 3 small cottages, is believed to pre-date this. The cottage is a famous local landmark: the current owners have a framed photograph from the Francis Frith Collection (which they are willing to pass on to the purchasers of the property) showing Priory Stile in 1890 in the foreground and Haverfordwest Priory ruins in the background. In the more recent past, the grounds of the property were used to run a very successful market garden in the 1950s; the property was also used in the 1990s/2000s to run a business connected to the motor trade.

A large garden (approximately quarter of an acre) surrounds the property, most of which is laid out to lawn and herbaceous borders, with two ponds, and a large South facing patio. The garden is bounded by mature trees and medieval stone walls, including the towering remains of the West Wall of the Priory. An area towards the back of the garden is large enough for a second structure to be built (subject to planning consent) such as an outside office or summerhouse. There is also a sunken terrace on the site of a small cottage which was once within the curtilage of the Priory. The garden has a private doorway into the Priory, and a Juliet balcony viewing point over the Priory ruins.
A large timber outbuilding (10.9m x 4.6m max), currently utilised as a wood store but easy large enough to be used as a garage/workshop, provides excellent storage space and has its own electricity supply. A large gate provides vehicular access to the garden and outbuilding, with space for two cars to park. There are two further parking spaces outside the garden gate and another to the side of the house.
