Overview

About the property

Delightful 2 bedroom apartment , For website with detailed info. See Facilties

A delightful apartment annexed to the main house with a distant sea view through well-maintained large gardens. It is in the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park close to beaches and convenient for many attractions.

It is recommended that you view the owners website. To find this use the facilities button and scroll all the way down to the link

The apartment has two bedrooms and can accommodate up to six people. There are two double beds, a single bed (above one of the double beds) and a fold up bed can be put in the other room. It is ideally suited therefore for a large family or perhaps two couples with children. The room with the double and single bed also has a tv with DVD player.

All prices for the apartment are based on up to four people occupancy. For a booking with 5 or six people there is a charge of £50 per person per week to cover additional bedding and cleaning.

Please note that pricing is for direct to bank or cheque payments and if you wish to pay by credit card a processing fee of 3% will be added to any payment made that way. If you use this for the deposit you can still switch to direct to bank payments for the main payment. For details of how to pay direct to bank/internet banking please select 'Prices and Availability' and then scroll down to 'Additional pricing information'. If in any doubt please contact me by text or email and I will explain.

You can also find my website by searching for "Mount Pleasant Saundersfoot" where there is a lot of information about the apartment and the area.

Although the apartment is well equipped, there are additional available items in the main house. If you think you need something else please ask and I will try to provide it.

The apartment is about three quarters of a mile from the Saundersfoot village centre/ harbour and main beach, so it is convenient to walk or drive but there is also a regular bus service to the village, Tenby and other larger towns which passes right by the property and buses will stop on request. Whilst being convenient for the village it benefits from being free of the hubbub of the village centre especially in the late evening.

Alternatively there is an off-road walk down to the Glen beach via a footpath through woodlands with a gentle gradient.

The apartment is suitable for up to 6 people and has a bathroom with WC, hand basin, bath and separate shower.

The main living accommodation is a combined lounge/diner and kitchen area which is well-equipped with fridge, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, electric kettle, gas cooker and other small appliances. An external washing line is available and subject to agreement whilst you are here I can also allow the use of a washing machine.

In the main lounge here is a Freeview TV with combined DVD/CD player and some CDs, DVDs, books and games are provided.

Off road parking is available for up to two cars.

Sun loungers/chairs for use on the property or to take to the beach are available if required and a barbecue is also available although this must be cleaned after use.

Linen (duvet covers, pillow cases and bottom sheets) are provided. Towels can be provided for a nominal additional cost.

One and occasionally two dogs are allowed with prior notification.

The apartment is also on the route of the Ironman race and ideal for watching it or as a base to take part.

Further details can be found on my website which can be accessed via the "Facilities" tab.

Please note that no smoking is allowed in the apartment.

About Allan Keating

My name is Allan and I own and manage the apartment. I’m a retired widower doing this for the fun of meeting people as much as supplementing my pension.

You may only see me when you arrive and maybe when you leave as I try to greet people and say goodbye to them and then leave them alone if that is what they want.

However, I want to stress that if I am needed because there is a problem or just a need for some information about the local area then I am on hand pretty much 24 hours a day. Obviously I hope not to be woken in the middle of the night but if there was a problem I would be there.

I think this personal presence is important because a lot of the properties in this market are owned by remote people and either managed by an agent or you are left trying to contact the remote owner who will then try to resolve your problem from a long way away. I know how frustrating it can be when you want to get on with your holiday and you need to sort something out but can’t find anyone or it happens too slowly. My plan is for nothing to go wrong but if it does then want to fix it quickly.

But if you like to be left alone then you won’t see me except perhaps doing a bit of gardening in the large garden or looking after my chickens.

I’m also a member of the local Male Voice choir in Tenby.

The house at Mount Pleasant which is my home was originally built in 1899 and so was an old stone cottage with very thick walls (about 20”) but the apartment was added in the 1970s initially as accommodation for the daughter of the owners of the house at that time. When I purchased the house with my wife and two children we had no need for the apartment and for a while it was rented long term but I decided to use it for holiday purposes about 5 years ago.

I usually try to make new improvements to it every year and keep it well maintained and equipped. Although there is pretty much everything you need I will if requested supply something from my own kitchen equipment if y

Allan Keating purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Allan Keating chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

I moved from Liverpool looking for a rural location with a large garden for my family. I have two sons although they are now grown up and have their own accommodation.

The apartment is a self-contained annexe to the main house. The walls of the house adjoining the flat are the old stone walls as the house was originally a stone cottage so they are about 18" thick and provide total privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

There is good off the road parking and the location is ideal as a base either for walking direct from the property to the local beach or on to the coastal path, or to drive further afield. It is quiet and set in a large garden.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely clean and well equipped apartment with beautiful gardens with chickens, fresh eggs are available from the owner.

Quiet location with easy access to Saundersfoot. taking just 10 minutes to get to be beach by car or a bus stops at the top of the Road.

Would definitely go back again.

Would highly recommend this apartment.

Nice cottage near Tenby

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely week near Tenby!!! We were welcome by Allan in his cottage. Well-equiped, cosy and confortable, it was a very convenient place to visit south-West Wales. So many castles to visit, so many hikes to do on the coastpath, so many beers to drink.... but no enough time to discover all the countryside. Thank you Allan for your kindness and hospitality.

Great base for our holiday

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be a great base for our stay in Saundersfoot, Wales. We found the nearby secluded beach which was peaceful and quite lovely. Everything we needed for our holiday was available within the apartment and it was very comfortable. Also anything else from shops, beaches, restaurants, pubs and walks were nearby and the owner provides useful notes on arrival to help with this.

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

1 miles to Saundersfoot (walkable), 2.5 miles to Tenby (by car). Many other beautiful beaches within short driving distance. Pembrokeshire has a famous and stunning coastal walk 186 miles in length which is a National Park.

Travel:

There are a number of buses which pass right by the house and will stop on request in either direction. The nearest airport is Cardiff. There is a train station in either Saundersfoot or Tenby but really the use of a car is recommended in this area to take advantage of the many scenic beauty spots.

Distances:

1/2 mile to New Hedges with good village mini-market, 1 miles to Saundersfoot with shops, pubs, arcade, restaurants etc. 2.5 miles to Tenby with lots of small shops and plenty of nice eating and drinking venues. We are convenient for the Oakwood and Bluestone parks and there are various castles in the area.

Further Details:

There is a cash point about 1/2 mile away in New Hedges in easy walking distance. There is also a post office and minimarket there and a village pub/restaurant.
