Property code: FB286

Well designed, this hideaway for two is a cosy bolthole to return to after a busy day exploring the delights of Pembrokeshire.

A luxurious sea-view apartment in the heart of Tenby, this two-person bolthole is perfect for solo breaks and romantic escapes. Set back from the seafront, a whole range of great local pubs, shops, restaurants and sandy beaches are all within 0.5 miles. With this in mind, you could easily abandon your car and make the most of the amenities and attractions on offer. Or, should you feel like exploring further afield, you can also take advantage of this apartment’s convenient location, which affords proximity to some of West Wales’ most beautiful natural landmarks.

Located above a friendly pub, this third-floor apartment is reached via a spiral staircase from the beer garden. Having taken a short flight of stairs from a shared hallway, you can step inside and enter the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Set within the eaves, this room enjoys ample light from large skylights and has beautiful views towards the sea. Framed by characterful sloping ceilings and exposed beams, it is made even cosier with the addition of a wood burner – especially welcoming on winter nights. To complete the picture, the apartment features a shower room and an attractive master bedroom.

Boasting excellent proximity to the coast, it’ll be hard not to fall for the allure of Tenby’s three beaches – idyllic for sunbathing, swimming and picnicking by the shore. To let off some steam, you can have a go at a number of water sports or stretch your legs along Pembrokeshire’s Coast Path from Tenby to Saundersfoot. Of course, there are lots of shops, galleries and cafés to visit along Tenby’s ancient, cobbled streets, while from the harbour you can hop aboard boats for unique wildlife spotting tours or trips to the holy Caldey Island. For natural beauty, Stack Rocks and the Green Bridge of Wales are must-sees (16 miles).

A lovely, comfortable apartment in a fantastic location - a couple of minutes walk from not one, but two beautiful sandy beaches where we swam, kayaked and bodyboarded. We hardly moved the car all week (top tip - 25 for 7 days' parking in the multistory car park) as we could do fantastic coastal walks from the door and had pubs and restaurants on tRead morehe doorstep. Would definitely recommend Tenby and this flat. A lot of stairs but worth it for the lovely views! Hide

Ty Olwen is a brilliant, stylish, very clean apartment. It is spacious, well-equipped and very handy for central Tenby and the beaches. It is situated above a pub that provides excellent food. The only negative point, for those who might not be fully fit, it is up about six flights of stairs including an external spiral staircase.

We have stayed in Tenby many times and the location is ideal for anyone not wanting to rely on car. Short walk to all beaches, harbour, cafs and restaurants. Property is well equipped and has everything you will need. It is a top floor apartment and would recommend you pack smaller bags rather than one big one!

Spacious, airy, beautifully styled and well-equipped. Wonderful views and very well situated above the best pub in Tenby. You do have to climb a few flights of stairs but you need to walk off the amazing fish tacos from the Hope and Anchor!
