About the Owner

We are an Armed Forces family and have spent over 20 years following the flag. R was born and bred in Tenby and J found her when he was firing missiles at the nearby firing range at Manorbier. They met in a now defunct nightclub called Chequers, just outside Penally. Their eyes met across a crowded dancefloor and the rest is family history!

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Ystrad is ideally situated on a quiet road 5 mins from the town centre or South Beach. We enjoyed a fantastic family holiday - the house is comfortable with enough space to accommodate 2 adults and 5 children. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of the world.

Our home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Ystrad and, once again, we were not disappointed. The house is well positioned away from the hustle and bustle but near enough to be in the middle of Tenby within minutes. Easy access to the beaches, town, harbour, etc, with plenty to see and do.

Ystrad is fully equipped for ease of living and the house is airy and light with large rooms to spread out in over all floors.

Rebecca and James are friendly and hospitable - I have never had a problem contacting and find them helpful and caring of their guests. A big thank you for that.

Such a lovely holiday, packed with happy memories....do you know what? I plan to return for the third time next year!!

The most perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the house I instantly fell in love with it and so did all the family. There were 8 of us and I was worried it would feel a little small but this was not the case. There was plenty of room for everyone and the house was equipped with everything we could have needed or wanted. The charm of the house with the beautiful fire places, high ceilings, bay windows and bare foorboards just made it feel so homely I didn't want to leave.

The location of the house is perfect, just a five minute walk to the town and beeches, it's a dream house and already I can't wait for the next visit. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best holiday home we ever stayed in, around the UK. The house is extremely well equiped, charming, cosy and tastefully decorated. The location is ideal, close to the beautiful Tenby beaches but in a rather quiet part of town, a five minutes' walk from supermarkets and other amenities.

The owners spent a lot of time and money decorating the house. It feels very homey and it has all the comfort and facilities of a modern holiday let. The communication with the owners went smoothly. They are very friendly and professional at the same time, trying to accommodate their customers' needs, being very flexible and prompt.

Free parking is limited at the end of the street but we never had a hard time finding a place at any time of day. Tenby itself needs no further introduction, of course, one of the most scenic seaside resorts in Wales. Plenty of things to do in the area, lots of walk beginning right from your doorstep. James and Rebecca, the owners, know the area very well and are keen on giving you advice on where to go, where to eat, what to see. There's plenty of information in the house available about attractions in and around Tenby, practical information about the town.

I don't remember ever feeling so sad when leaving the holiday's address! We'll definitely return to beautiful Tenby and mesmerizing Ystrad! The accommodation and its owners simply set the standards in hospitality.

From the Owner

Ystrad is our family home, although we live most of the time in Army quarters wherever J is based. We purchased it in 2013 and it is an ongoing project. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and we warmly welcome any suggestions for sensible (and affordable) improvements. We trust that repeat visitors will see incremental changes as we gradually enhance the facilities.

Further Details:

Tenby is a charming medieval walled town with a picturesque harbour and wonderful beaches. It is set in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with 186 miles of Coastal Path stretching from Amroth in the South to St Dogmaels in the North. Combine that with the only coastal National Park in the UK, some of the most spectacular and varied coastline in the world, the Preseli mountains and over 621 miles of footpaths and bridleways then you truly have a walkers paradise.

But being a seaside town Tenby obviously caters for those who also like to get their feet wet. From surfing to jet-skiing, all watersports and activities are catered for.

For the less adventurous there are boat trips across to the monastery island of Caldey, sea safaris, mackeral fishing trips and seal watching excursions - all from the harbour.

All manner of water craft can be rented from kayaks to power boats and tuition in most activities is available. The nearby beaches of Manorbier and Freshwater are surfing hotspots and there is a friendly and lively sailing club that welcomes guest members.

Steeped in history there are castles, cathedrals, churches and chapels to be visited in the local area, as well as Dylan Thomas's Boathouse at Laugharne (20 miles away).

For nature lovers, the National Park provides a wonderful habitat for seabirds and puffins can be spotted at a number of locations. Marine life is also highly visible with seals and dolphins frequently spotted in the waters and coves around Tenby.

Tenby has a number of excellent pubs and restaurants that provide local fare in the form of seafood and local welsh products. Many have outdoor seating and there is a vibrant cafe culture in the summer months. During this period there are frequent events held in the harbour with live music, dancing and fireworks.
