About Anthea Evenden

We are a semi retired couple who live in the Tenby area and have two holiday properties that we rent out.

We have decided to offer them through 'Owners Direct' having successfully rented through the site ourselves on several occasions.

We aim to equip and maintain our properties to the high standard that we ourselves hope to find when renting a holiday home, and encourage our guests to give us honest feedback in order that we can improve on this.

Every winter we undertake some kind of upgrading or redecoration so the guests who return every year (of which there are several) always have something new!

Anthea Evenden purchased this house in 1998

Why Anthea Evenden chose Tenby

Francis Cottage was bought from a local family who had lived in it for generations, as our future retirement home.

We fell in love with its homely, comfortable feel and large living spaces, as well as being convenient for the town centre and beaches.

What makes this house unique

The house is handy for the walled town and award winning beaches without having to be involved in the summer pedestrianisation of the town centre and the frustration that it brings to car drivers and guests of properties located within the walls.

The house has ample, secure, private off road parking which very few other holiday properties in Tenby have.

A Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Francis Cottage was an ideal place to stay for 6 adults. It had all the necessary amenities, plenty of space and was very conveniently positioned for seeing all of Tenby without needing a car. The parking was a great bonus.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay while on holiday in Tenby with the kids during half term. Very comfortable and spacious cottage with everything you need to make it a comfortable stay. Very close to town, and within a few minutes walk and also the same distance to the beach or harbour. We would definitely stay here again

Wonderfully clean well equipped cottage in fab location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days in this cottage which had everything we needed for a stress free stay with our toddler - thank you for the travel cottage seat and stair gate. The cottage was beautifully clean throughout. The only thing we struggled with. And this maybe down to personal preference, was the small double bed and a duvet that matched the smaller sized bed.

Tenby has five superb beaches which are all within five or ten minutes walk of the house.


Nearest airports are Cardiff and Bristol (two hours by car) there is a small airport at Haverfordwest (half an hour by car) mostly used by private 'planes.

The ferry terminal to Ireland at Pembroke Dock is about ten miles away.


The cottage is within a couple of minutes walk of Tenby town centre and the beaches.

Arrival is hassle free. Pull up at the private car park barrier next door but one to the cottage, collect your key and barrier pass from the key box, drive through the barrier, turn left and park in your private parking spaces or garage, open the garden gate, walk up the garden path and let yourselves in through the back door.

No queuing, no hassle or parking to collect keys, just arrive and relax!

Further Details:

The house has been let through a holiday letting agent for over ten years but we have decided to let it through 'Owners Direct' so that we can offer a better price and a higher, more personal standard of service.

It has most recently been graded 'Visit Wales' four stars and was previously five star graded when the Welsh tourist board was the grading agency.
