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 Tenby

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!

Great apartment in a brilliant location

  • 4 of 5

We've recently returned from a short break over Easter with our daughter and my niece (13yrs). We all loved the apartment and you couldn't ask for better views. The area was safe for the girls to go off and play on the beach or wonder around town on their own, and the wifi kept them entertained when we weren't out and about!

The apartment was well furnished and the beds were very comfortable, everything you would need was in the well equipped the kitchen, and the shower was a fun focal point.

The local area was nice and quiet and we had no problem with noise from outside. Parking was fine, we tended to use the mutli storey which cost £4 for 24 hrs, it was handy to pop to the shops on the walk through town when we'd been out so we didn't find that a problem at all.

We had fantastic weather for April, sat on the beach one day and took the boat trip around Caldy Island, lucky enough to see some seals basking in the sun.

The only reason I haven't put 5 stars was because of the faff with the rubbish. We didn't use the little bin outside the apartment but saved it all in the big bin bag which meant it was squashed in between the girls when we left, however the tip was on the way out of Tenby and only 5 mins away. On the plus side it did make us think about the amount of waste we produced in 5 days!

In all we had a great day and hopefully will return soon.

PS Grant and Virginia answered all our questions before we went and couldn't have been more helpful. :)

Stunning views, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

I can’t believe that there’s a property with better views in all of Tenby. The decor in the flat is beautiful and furnishings comfortable and homely. The kitchen is well equipped, although with so many fantastic restaurants and cafes so close to the apartment, we took the opportunity to eat out as much as possible.

The Location and the Space were Delightful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this vrbo for four nights. The location was wonderful with views of the bay outside the living room window. We were able to park four blocks from the vrbo, which was not to far for us as there is no parking right next to the vrbo as it is located in the town center. The unit was mostly clean...some dirty dishes, we cleaned the window, which looked out over the bay, and a musty tea towel left in the washing machine....but this can all be dealt with by talking with the cleaners. I think as Americans we were surprised even though it was written in the owner's notes there are no hand or bath towels. We were able to purchase two bath towels at a thrift store. The other thing as Americans is that we normally don't expect to have to get rid of our own trash. There was one large bag to throw your trash in in the kitchen and no bags in the bathroom trash can. So we took our trash out to the kitchen from the bathroom whenever the need arose to do so. The owners explained they cannot put their trash on the sidewalks (a city ordinance) so you have to get rid of it otherwise the cleaner if she/he takes it out charges 10 pounds to do so (a note saying this posted in the kitchen). So we honored the request. These are all small things but they do color the experience a bit. But overall it was a good experience due to the location, the space it offers and the stunning sea views from the living room.

Happy Stay In Tenby

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and comfortable but there were just a few things that could make it better:- (1, to make sure that all the lights had bulbs in and all the others were working.(2, a pair of oven gloves would be a great help. (3, the sofa,s and cushions need a good clean, they are stained and dirty.

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.
