Overview

About the property

Apartment in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Central To Just About Everything! Shops, Restaurants, Bars And All 4 Beaches!

We had been looking for a stunning sea view property in Tenby for several years! In 2010 one finally became available. Since we purchased this two floor apartment in 2010 we have spent nearly every spare moment (and penny) refurbishing, redecorating and refreshing it to be what is it today. This apartment is part of the history of Tenby and it appears on every postcard of Tenby Harbour. It is Grade listed as it was a Public House in the 17th century. It is steeped in history and has a heritage plaque above the front door showing that George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) wrote her first novel in this very building.

About Grant and Virginia Turner

Virginia and I just love spending every moment we can down in Tenby.

Grant and Virginia Turner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Grant and Virginia Turner chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

We had been looking for a stunning sea view property in Tenby for several years as we just love the Pembrokeshire coast! Great to stroll on all of the beaches and walk the coastal path but the views from the front room are the real reason we simply love this apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Everything is so close - Ocean Italian restaurant is next door and the Hope and Anchor pub is 50 yards one way with the Plantagenet Restaurant 50 yards the other. The shops are just around the corner as is the Laugharne Bread Shop which serves up fresh bread from 9am each morning - try the uncut wholemeal!

Perfect place for a Tenby holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for a little break in the lovely town of Tenby. The views from the living room were splendid - we often spent hours just sitting and staring out over the harbour as the world passed us by! The beach is amazing for a morning/afternoon or evening stroll and is literally on your doorstep. The apartment was very spacious as we were two separate couples however there was plenty of room for our own space. The downstairs shower room is fantastic and a lot of effort has been made on making that particular room amazing and very Tenby-like! Access to the apartment was very simple and there were no faults from our end. We look forward to re-visiting and hope you manage to get the balcony fitted as we believe that would make it even more excellent! Thank you very much!

Great views of a lovely old fashioned seaside town

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment with great sea views. A little confusion over safe key code, but was sorted out quickly. Luckily we caught the maintenance man just before he left for the airport for a weeks holiday abroad! Spacious apartment with lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, just need to keep an eye on things like replacing bulbs as we couldn't find any spares. All in all an enjoyable few days.

Comfortable apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable apartment, everything you needed available. Fabulous location with great views and easy access to the town. Might be difficult if you are elderly as a lot of stairs to climb to get to apartment.

A lovely comfortable apartment with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to say anything detrimental about the apartment . It has been furnished with taste and care reflecting the owners view of it as a home rather than just a let. Everything met with, in fact exceeded, our expectations. After the Saturday 3rd- school half term still - the crowds diminished greatly and Tenby became a more peaceful place. Parking is a problem though we were ,after Saturday, able to find spaces on The Croft even when we used the car to travel out to some of the lovely villages along the coast. We found the information pack really useful, particularly the maps for coastal walks.

Location

Nearest Restaurant
10 Metres
Ocean
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

There are 4 beaches in Tenby: South Beach has 2km of golden sand which spans the shoreline from St. Catherine's Island to Giltar Point.

Castle Beach lies in the cove between Castle Hill and the East Cliff. Harbour beach is a small picturesque beach found right outside your front door and our favorite.

North Beach dominates the view from the flat and is a golden stretch of sandy beach and the prominent Goskar Rock.

Travel:

Tenby is a 2 hour drive down the M4 from the Severn Bridge Crossing (Bristol), 4 hours from West London, 3 ½ hours from Birmingham and 1 ½ hours from Cardiff.

Tenby has a train station and high speed trains run from London Paddington to Carmarthen (3½ hrs). However once past Carmarthen the trains are pretty pedestrian and the journey to Tenby is as slow (1hr) as it is picturesque.

Distances:

Saundersfoot - took us an hour to walk using the coastal path and beach (do it at low tide) and we got the bus back after a great coffee!

Narberth is about a 15 minute drive has been named as one of the twenty nominations for “Britain’s Best Shopping Street” in the Google Street View Awards 2011. Oakwood Adventure Park is about 20 minutes away and has some spectacular rides nowadays!

Further Details:

A Tesco Metro supermarket (open from 6am - 10pm) is a 2 minute walk, so no panic if you run out of anything! A larger Sainsbury's supermarket is five mins walk; Braun's the butchers in Tenby Market Hall, Four Seasons local fruit and veg offer good quality fresh produce. This year a fishmonger has opened its doors right outside in the Tenby harbour so if you don’t catch your own you can purchase a bass or some mackerel – just don’t tell the wife!

There is a wide selection of cafes and restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes - from excellent fish and chips, classic pub food, Indian restaurants and one or two high quality restaurants. We supply a fact sheet for our guests before they arrive which not only suggests our favorite restaurants but also which tables are the best to book and gives contact numbers so you can make that booking early. Restaurants in Tenby are booked weeks if not months in advance.
