Overview

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.

Further renovations are planned for November 2017, which will add an extra child's bed in the Case Room (maximum occupancy will be 14 + 1 from December 17 onwards) and private bathroom facilities for Skokholm.

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!"

Wonderful stay at Castle View House

  • 5 of 5

12 of us have just had a fantastic weekend in Tenby staying at Castle View House. The house is large and spacious and very comfortable. The first floor drawing room has the most amazing view and is great to sit and watch the world go by. The house has everything you need for your stay. Just a short walk into town where there are lovely shops to mooch around. Tenby and the house are really worth the visit.

Lovely old house- great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday with a group of friends in this lovely property. It was very spacious and facilities for self catering were excellent for a large group of people.

I would recommend the property for a family gathering or for a group of friends.

A lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our group of two couples and four singles for a short break. All the bedrooms we used were spacious and very comfortable and the house is stylishly decorated throughout. Everything we needed in the kitchen was there and the harbour view from the drawing room - wow! Perfectly clean with ample towels etc. Two TV lounges with a stack of DVDs which we never got round to trying. The owner is very helpful, even suggesting a choice of fish and chip shop!

Castle View

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time exploring the house. There was plenty to see. The house was well equipped, very clean and also very comfortable. Lovely views from the front lounge. More than enough room for everyone to spread out. The position of the bedrooms meant that the three families had separate areas.

Beautiful spacious property in prime position

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing holiday all fourteen of us away together, some wonderful memories were created, your house is beautiful with plenty of space for us all with such a well equipped kitchen, we had a barbecue in the garden the children had a ball. In spite of mixed weather we managed several days on the beach & a couple of coastal walks as well as visits to various places. The house is in such a prime spot. We miss waking up to the beautiful views over to Pendine. We were all thrilled to see the lifeboat being launched it was so exciting. We will definitely be back.

Thanks again Meg.

Beautiful property, amazing views and bags of space....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family and the property suited our needs perfectly, we loved the amount of space and the large table for evening meals. You step out the front door and you are on the beach with the added bonus of a garden for the kids to play in come early evening.

Location

Coast/Beach:

Castle View House is directly above Tenby's blue flag North Beach, and Castle, Harbour and South beaches are a short walk away. South Beach, with 2 kilometres of golden sand spanning the shoreline from St. Catherine's Island to Giltar Point, allows dogs all year.

Travel:

Tenby is an easy 2 hour drive down the M4 from the Severn Bridge Crossing near Bristol, with motorway and dual carriageway for all but the last few miles. It is approximately 3.5 hours drive from Heathrow, 4 hours from West London, 3.5 hours from Birmingham, 1.5 hours from Cardiff.

Tenby has a train station and trains run from London Paddington via Reading, Bristol, Cardiff and Swansea.

Distances:

3 miles to seaside town of Saundersfoot. 4 miles to Manorbier's beach, 12th Century Church and Castle; 4 miles to Carew Castle; 8 miles to Pembroke and its Castle, birthplace of Henry VII; 11 miles to Pembroke Dock and ferries to Ireland; 12 miles to the NT's beautiful Stackpole Estate; 15 miles to Freshwater West beach, where Shell Cottage of Harry Potter fame was built from scratch; 20 miles to the county town of Haverfordwest; 26 miles to Marloe Sands where Kristen Stewart rode in Snow White.

Further Details:

Shopping: A Tesco Metro supermarket (open from 6am - 10pm) is a 4 minute walk away with a larger Sainsbury's supermarket within the town for a wider choice. Tenby's many small shops include WH Smiths, plenty of surf shops, antique shops, one or two women's fashion stores and an old fashioned sweet shop.

Eating out: 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 including our favourite the Blue Ball.

Out and about: all around Tenby is a walker's and nature lover's paradise. Within 10 miles there are several beautiful coastal locations and beaches such as the world renowned Barafundle Bay at Stackpole Quay, Bosherston Lily Ponds and Broadhaven Beach (both featured on BBCs Secret Britain). From Marloes a short boat trip will take you to Skomer Island and its famous bird colonies including guillemots, razorbills and the comical puffins, surrounded by one of only three marine nature reserves in the UK. Anna Ryder's Wild Welsh Zoo is just 2 miles away.

Activities: 8 miles from Oakwood theme park and the newly developed Blue Lagoon where there is an indoor water park. Heatherton offers a 'pay as you go' style activity centre with 18 hole par 3 golf course, paintballing, go karts, bumper boats, archery, laser clay shooting. Fishing trips and seal safaris depart regularly from Tenby harbour, as do regular shuttle boats to Caldy island where there is a monastery.

Pampering: The Celtic Haven spa at Lydstep (3 miles) offers great value Spa Days with 7 Treatment Rooms. The Relaxation Room has spectacular views over the cliff-tops to Caldey Island and the ocean beyond.

Sports: sailing, kayaking, banana boat riding, jet ski safaris can all be organised in Tenby and nearby there is horse riding. Bikes can also be hired at Tenby Cycles two doors away.

You will be spoilt for choice with so many places to go and things to do!
