Explore this true home away from home in coastal Tenby, Pembrokeshire’s largest town and an unforgettable space to stay, with fishing, boat trips and walks all on your doorstep.

Discover all that Tenby has to offer throughout your stay, ticking all the boxes for guests of all interests. Wander down to Tenby Harbour (300 metres) to find plenty of activities, including fishing trips and boat trips out to Caldey Island, or simply pack up a book for a long day on Tenby’s South Beach (100 metres) or North Beach (0.5 miles). In summer months, soak up the town’s ‘café culture’, where the pedestrianised town centre lays claim to al fresco dining and space to wander. Alternatively, set off a little further afield and follow the Pembrokeshire Coast Path up to Saundersfoot (3.5 miles), a rewarding walk with local pubs and independent eateries to greet you at the end.

A truly authentic seaside cottage, this property is located across three storeys with narrow staircases in-between. Step inside to discover a cosy living area on the ground floor, where both a lounge and a dining room can be found in one space. Homely sofas offer a great spot for settling in front of the TV/DVD or picking up one of the books on the bookcases, whilst the dining table offers space for a romantic evening meal. Head downstairs to the lower ground floor to discover a kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom is a contemporary space with WC, shower and heated towel rail, whilst the kitchen is well-equipped with an electric cooker, hob, fridge/freezer and a microwave. On the first floor, accessible via a staircase from the ground floor, a double bedroom offers a snug space to sleep and far-reaching sea views to wake up to each morning, along with a small separate WC.

This charming property doesn’t offer any outdoor space, but benefits from an unbeatable location for accessing the local beaches and other town centre amenities.
