About Nigel + Sian Davies

Nigel & Sian Davies are the owners of Dragon Cottage + we endeavour to offer a first class holiday experience to all who come to stay at our property. It is a very special place for us where we have spent many happy family holidays. We also want your holiday to be a happy and special occasion – one that you will treasure for years to come. We have put a lot of time + effort into making Dragon Cottage Tenby a comfortable self catering holiday cottage + we are constantly looking to improve on what is already a first class holiday home. We are confident that you will find at the Cottage all that you need for making your stay an enjoyable one. Our prices are very competitive when compared with similar properties in the area. Should you have any queries please do not hestitate to get in touch.

Nigel + Sian Davies purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Nigel + Sian Davies chose Tenby

Dragon Cottage was already an established self catering holiday accommodation when we bought the property in 2003. At that time it was a Welsh Tourist Board 3 star property but now following many improvements and upgrades it is a high 4 star property. Having been on many self catering holidays in the past, it was always a dream of ours to run our own self catering property. We have always loved Tenby with it's fantastic scenery and beautiful clean beaches, and when Dragon Cottage was put on the market in 2003 we decided to purchase it with the aim of turning it into a dream holiday home.

What makes this cottage unique

The Tenby area has many lovely holiday cottages but what makes Dragon Cottage really special is it's very central location. Not only is the cottage beautifully furnished and well equipped it is also within a few minutes walk to all that Tenby has to offer, including the beach, town centre, supermarket, golf course, pubs, restaurants and many other amenities. Many of our guests hardly use the car all week, so convenient is Dragon Cottage to everything in Tenby.

On the other hand, should you wish to visit some of the fantastic theme parks and attractions within the county of Pembrokeshire you will again find that these destinations are only a short car journey away.

It is no exaggeration to say that Dragon Cottage is truly an ideal holiday destination.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Dragon Cottage. A standard to aspire to.”

Dragon Cottage is an old shop which has been converted to afford ample accommodation in a very convenient location. There is a multi storey car park (cheap weekly rate) and a supermarket within 5 minutes of even a very slow walker. The town centre through the old town wall is the same distance with easy access to the surrounding beautiful beaches and coastal paths. We have just returned from our third visit to this spotless house and have no qualms about recommending it. Just don't book the week we want next year.

“Everything you need to make for an enjoyable holiday”

Spent the week here with my parents, husband and kids. The cottage was lovely and clean and had everything you need from travel cots and stair gates to tea coffee and even tablets to do your laundry! The cottage is just a stones throw away from Tenby town centre which had lots of good places to eat and a 5 minute walk to a beautiful clean beach. All in all a great place to stay if you are thinking of visiting Tenby

“A very pleasant winter”

We spent the winter (November 2013 - March 2014) in Dragon Cottage and loved the small town of Tenby. The cottage had plenty of room for us and the service from our landlord and landlady was very friendly indeed. The cottage had everything we needed for the winter months.

As for Tenby there is a lot to see. We had long walks on the public footpaths and visited the neighbouring villages. We returned to our home in a much better physical shape :) The Tenby people are the friendliest people we have met in the UK!

Being almost 60 now I have to confess it was quite a surprise to find a location I honestly consider the best I have been living in so far.

“Location Was Perfect”

Service from Mr and Mrs Davies was excellent...very courteous,kind and efficient.The house was lovely,especially the pretty bedrooms. A ground floor bedroom and bathroom was a bonus.Everywhere was sparkling clean. The location was perfect,in a quiet street,a couple of minutes' walk from all amenities and the beautiful beaches and harbour.Lots of pubs and restaurants nearby,including a superb fish and chip shop.We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay in such a beautiful area.

“Fab cottage will be returning”

Me and my family stayed at Dragon Cottage for a week in May. What a lovely cottage was everything we could have wished for. Very close to the town. Cottage was spotless when we arrived, and also it was fab for my nan who is 87 as she was able to sleep in the bedroom downstairs with a downstairs toilet close by.

We have no complaints and will most definitely be booking for next year.

Chose this cottage online. What a winner!! We stayed there with family from England. It was fantastic. The location of the cottage was perfect because once you parked you could walk to anywhere in the lovely town of Tenby. We had all the mod coms one needs in a house plus charm. Even the English relatives, who had never been to Wales before, and went reluctantly. admitted that they would definitely go again and book The Dragon Cottage!!!

Lovely Cottage right in centre of Tenby

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Dragon Cottage, which was very comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The cottage is in a quiet street, but just a short stroll to the centre of town and the lovely bays along the seafront. There a Sainsbury’s just a short walk away, which is very useful and a it has a good range. We can thoroughly recommend Dragon Cottage to anyonewanting to stay in Tenby. We an recommend the Bay Tree for excellent meals. We didn't discover it until two days before we left! The castles of Pembroke and Minorbia are worth a visit as is St Davids Cathedral (although a bit of a drive). However, if you are a family and the weather is good, you don’t need to go anywhere except Tenby - the kids will love it!

Dragon Cottage Tenby

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 4 adults & an 18 month old baby, Dragon cottage was easy to find from the directions, it was as advertised close to the town and beaches, the cottage was in a quiet residential road, the cottage on arrival was very clean & equipped with various essential items, a large number of shops, pubs, cafes & restaurants were within easy walking distance, the cottage is a typical Welsh cottage with bathrooms both upstairs and down, I would not hesitate to book this cottage again and would recommend to friends & family.

Special interest holidays:

Tenby is one of Wales' premier holiday resorts, famous for its beautiful sandy beaches, clean seas and stunning scenery. Situated on Pembrokeshire's south coast it is a mere two hours drive from the Severn Bridge. From the picturesque harbour at Tenby there are organised daily boat trips, including fishing expeditions and visits to the famous Caldey Island and its Cistertian Monks.

The town is approximately two minutes walk from the Cottage. There is a grocery shop very conveniently placed, just a few yards up the road, and round the corner in the next street there is an excellent Fish and Chip shop which provides both take away and sit down meals. A few yards from the from the Fish and Chip shop is the main supermarket.

Tenby's facilities cater for all ages and Dragon Cottage is ideally located to be within easy walking distance to all that the town has to offer. It is also only a short drive to Pembrokeshire's many attractions and theme parks.


The superb location of Dragon Cottage means that the sea front is only 2 - 3 minutes walking distance. Being so close to the beach takes away all the hassle of parking. The sea around Tenby is safe for bathing and the beaches regularly receive the prestigious blue flag award. Regular boat trips are organised for fishing, sight seeing or visiting Caldey Island. The latter is a very special attraction where Cistercian monks continue a traditional lifestyle which began there in Celtic times.


By car, access from the east is normally along the M4 till you reach its end. Then join the A48 through to Carmarthen + then onto the A40 all the way to St Clears. From the roundabout just past St Clears, follow the A477 through until you reach the roundabout where the A478 turning is signposted to Tenby. Follow the signs to Tenby Town Centre. From the North of Wales, you can take the A487 Cardigan Bay Coast Road south until you reach Cardigan where the A478 is a left turn which leads to Tenby.


Dragon Cottage is ideally placed in a quiet street in the heart of Tenby. The town itself is one of Wales’ premier holiday destinations and is easily accessible by bus, train and car. (A British Rail Station is situated in Tenby). Travelling distance from the Severn Bridge is around 2 hours.

Further Details:

The main train station is just 2 minutes away by car. Bus stops are approximately 2 minutes walk from the house. (All walking distances mentioned are level walks with slight gradients in parts.)
