About the property

House in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Spacious, Stylish And Comfortable Accommodation In A Wonderful Location

Castle View House is a fine early Victorian town house dating from 1840, with later extensions at the rear. Run as a popular hotel from the 1930s up until 2012, it is now an unusually spacious holiday house. With a high ratio of living space to the number of bedrooms there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out as well as to come together to dine, converse and watch the ever changing seascape.

This is the ideal location for memorable holidays and for celebrating special events at all times of the year. Past guests have included four generation extended families and groups of walkers, artists and Iron Man competitors. The house sleeps up to fourteen in spacious comfort with eight bedrooms (six en-suite) and a top-spec family bathroom. The magnificent first floor drawing room has spectacular views through the vast bay window of the harbour, the castle (of course!) and out to sea. Sociable meals can be taken around the huge antique table in the dining room, and when you can drag yourselves away from the view there is a home cinema room with Sky+ and dvd player (a second tv and dvd in the Sun Room helps avoid any squabbles over viewing choices). The Games Room contains a full sized table football and an upright piano should you wish to accompany matches with a rousing anthem or two. There is wifi throughout the house.

The good-sized garden is enclosed and sunny, with a paved courtyard, lawns, decked seating platform and barbecue area. There is a private car park behind the house, where we rent four allocated spaces for the exclusive use of our guests - a real bonus in Tenby - with additional parking if needed available close by at North Beach car park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Castle View House is without doubt a five star holiday house in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, which those of us travelling from London found more easily accessible than Cornwall. The house has wonderful sea views, is extremely comfortable and spacious, has easy access to the beach and town (we hardly used our cars) and Meg, the owner, has provided lots of extra touches to make this a real home from home. We were three generations who found everything we needed (including toys, buckets and spades!) and with glorious late summer sunshine Castle View House really was the perfect venue for a very happy and memorable family holiday."

"What a beautiful house! You have done a brilliant job- congratulations. The views are fabulous, the rooms comfortable and so pretty and your restoration is a real success - sympathetic and inspired. We're so glad we came - would love to come back."

"Thanks Meg for all your help in arranging this lovely weekend. Everyone, especially the children (and the dog!) had a marvellous time. The house was just perfect for us all." .

"The house has been a perfect location for our family gathering, the glorious views, so many wonderful rooms. Four generations aged between 9 months and 94 years, we have all enjoyed every day.... the house is so spacious and comfortable we don't want to leave. Lots of special memories!"

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weekend at Castle View House to celebrate our parents golden wedding anniversary & all I can say is WOW! The house is absolutely fabulous, with all the little details catered for including binolulars in the drawing room to look at the beautiful view! The house is big enough so larger groups dont fall over themselves yet small enough to feel welcoming & warm. The kids made good use of the cinema room & enjoyed working through the large amount of films provided. The kitchen was more than adequate when catering for a larger group & it was another added bonus to have a dining table large enough to seat everyone comfortably. Before our arrival, Meg (the owner) was extremely helpful in answering any questions I had, another thoughtful touch was the welcome gifts left to help with our celebrations. We will definitely book again. Thank you for everything Meg x PS we were a group of 12 (7 adults & 5 young teens)

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful house, small enough to be cosy but big enough to find peace and quiet when needed. This house is well appointed and tastefully furnished. Our group of 6 adults and 5 kids have stayed here 4 times now and will be returning next year. Meg, the owner, is wonderfully accommodating and ready to deal with any issues straight away. Castle View House is truly a home away from home. We love it.

This huge house was perfect for three generations celebrating a 60th birthday. All 11 of us had a wonderful weekend and I don't think that any of us wanted to leave. The house has everything you could think of from a pizza cutter to a baby step for the little ones to reach the sink. The Cinema room was great for the grandchildren when the parents wanted a lay in, the lounge was big enough for all of us to sit in and have some fun with games once the babies were in bed and the view from this room was amazing. Having a group game of hide and seek in this house lasted ages as there were so many places to lose yourself .

The house is situated within easy walking distance of the town but far enough away from the noise that a high street might generate at night.

Meg couldn't have been more accommodating. Unfortunately we were unable to meet but she left very clear instructions and her telephone number so I just text her when I wanted to know something and she came straight back to me.

My 3 year old granddaughter fell in love with this house and is still talking about it now, but I think the final words should come from my 6 year old granddaughter. "This is the best holiday house I have ever been in"

Wonderful holiday home for friends to share

  • 5 of 5

What a super holiday home. Lived up to our expectations.

Fabulous kitchen for keen cooks like us and we loved the huge amount of space and thoughtful provision of little extras in the living space. the garden was gorgeous and we regularly chilled out there after a walk.

The drawing room was beautiful to relax in and the Cinema room next door was great for those who wanted to watch a film or TV

Basically, we all agreed it was just perfect.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Castle View house offered everything needed for a wonderful, multigenerational holiday. The house is well equipped, spacious and thoughtfully designed, with everything needed for catering and relaxation for a mixed group. The teenagers loved the TV room and table football, the dogs loved their wing, Grandma loved watching the world go by through the impressive bay window and everyone loved the easy access to beach and town. We were lucky with the weather, and spent most of our time outside, swimming, sailing, waking and fishing. For rainy days the house provides comfort and plenty of space for everyone to spread out and chill.

Super House

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fantastic week at Castle View House last July to celebrate our golden weddinganniversary with twelve members of our family. Lovely owner who greeted us as we arrived.The house is large and spacious, bedrooms all beautiful, spoilt for choice. The house has everything one would need plus a view to die for. I cannot think that anyone holidaying at this house would be disappointed.

Yes definately recommended for large family holidays so close to the beach shops and restaurants
