About Kate Baker

I live in Cardiff with my husband,son and our welsh terrier.We love to spend as much time in Pembrokeshire as school and work allow.

Kate Baker purchased this house in 2009

Why Kate Baker chose Penally

We came to visit friends and walked from Tenby to Penally across South Beach. Stopped for a pint in the Cross Inn and stumbled upon the house with it's for sale sign, we stood on the terrace peered through the windows and were immediately smitten with both the house and particularly the views and tranquil location. The house sits in the heart of the village on the green in front of the 13th century church with far reaching sea views. What's not to love? The village is ideally situated for walking,cycling, sea activities and in a great location to explore the beauty of Pembrokeshire.

What makes this house unique

You arrive at the house and all your worries slip away, it's a house from a bygone age and set in the heart of a beautiful village where you can do lots or nothing at all. We have loved renovating the house as a family and have hopefully done a sympathetic job and kept it in keeping with the character of the village.When we bought the house it had been in the same family for over 100 years and had no heating and electricity only on the ground floor only. We hope we have brought the house into the 20th century whilst not losing it's history.

Lovely house with amazing sea views, exceptionally well equipped and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Rock Villa is a fabulous, lovingly restored home. We loved the house and never tired of looking at the wonderful views, which we appreciated all the more when the weather was too bad to venture out. The house is comfortable with every need catered for and is very well equipped. There are so many great places to visit in the surrounding area so never short of somewhere interesting to go. Penally beach is just a very short walk away and the beautiful walled harbour town of Tenby just a little bit further. The lovely seaside town of Saundersfoot is also close by. Manobier beach is a short drive and a bit further afield are Freshwaters East and West and Barafundel bay beaches which are like something off a film set. This house is perfectly situated to enable you to visit much of the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. We loved it and hope to return very soon.

Its 4 double bedrooms and bunkroom easily accommodated 5 adults and 4 children, it is warm, spacious, and well equipped, we ate in every evening, had a log fire going in the lounge, and much fun on the table tennis table..........

Thanks Kate

Fantastic stay in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for somewhere to stay with beautiful views, great interior designed house, loads of extras (including dvds and board games etc) then Rock villa and Penally should be on your list of places to stay.

The early morning September sunrise shouldn’t be missed, a simply breath taking view across the golf course to the beach and Carmarthenshire coastline in the distance.

Thank you Kate for the extra little touches, they were very much appreciated.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house.

Nearest Beach
0.7 Miles
South Beach
Car: recommended


Penally to South beach Viewpoint is an easy access walk of 0.7miles along a mostly level tarmac path to wooden viewpoint rewarded by great sea views. The walk passes a rifle range,then golf course and finally the dunes. It is worth taking binoculars as the cliffs and foreshore to the west are rich in bird life. There are views to Caldey and St Margaret's and east to Tenby which is approx 1.5 miles walk along the dog friendly south beach.


Penally is an easy 2 hour drive down the M4 from the Severn bridge Crossing near Bristol, with motorway and duel carriageway for all but the last few miles.

It is approximately 3.5 hours from Heathrow, 4 hours from west London, 3.5 hours from Birmingham and 1.5 hours from Cardiff.

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