About the property

Cottage in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Central Location, Less Than 5 Minutes' Walk To Nearest Beach And Golf Links

China Cottage is a much-photographed, unique property in an amazing location. You'll find this pretty cottage - situated down a quaint lane just off Tenby's town square - a perfect base for exploring Tenby and its many attractions. It suits families and extended families, with plenty of room for one or two extra cots. We've owned it for 15 years, and restored it lovingly when we can between our many returning visitors. China Cottage is popular all year round, as Tenby is not just a summer location, but is great for long weekends and winter walks. The cottage is spacious, bright and airy in the summer months; and with its stove fireplace and deep leather sofas it is also cosy and characterful in the winter. It couldn't be more central to the shops and café bars. The master bedroom has a 'hidden' roll top bath where you can soak by candlelight. No-smoking throughout.

If you like the sound of this property, you may also like our others - No4 Queens Parade (sleeps 7 & infant, garden & permit parking) ref 8162357; No1 Albert View (sleeps 4 & infant) ref 8165786; & No2 Albert View (sleeps 6 & infant) ref 1820417 - all in or around the town centre and every one close to the beach. Subject to availability, No1 & 2 Albert View can be let together to form a whole town-house accommodation for family and extended family of 10.

About Julie Jones, owner of TENBY TOWN COTTAGES

Tenby Town Cottages is a family-run business with over 15 years' experience of letting our own houses & cottages in Tenby. We also own popular foodie-pubs in Tenby, and a little gift/bookshop, so showing Tenby and its gorgeous offerings at their very best are at the heart of what we do. We love Tenby, and make it our business to make sure you will too.

We try and respond to every booking enquiry within 24 hours, but because of our numerous other business commitments it is not always possible to do so. If you have not heard from us directly (as opposed to an automated response from Owners Direct) within 24 hours, please feel free to follow up your enquiry with a text or phone call. Your holiday is important to us.

Julie Jones, owner of TENBY TOWN COTTAGES purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Julie Jones, owner of TENBY TOWN COTTAGES chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

When China Cottage became available to buy, it was so quaint and central, that we acquired it in order to build up our little property portfolio. Given its age (approx 250 years) and thick original walls, it's taken some time to 'modernise, but it has a lovely spacious yet cosy feel to it and couldn't be more convenient for the town and beaches. Our other properties are No 4 Queens Parade (our first family home; a big, stylish, terraced town house with views of Caldey Island and Tenby Golf Links); and No 1 Albert View (a cool compact apartment next to a foodie pub and less than a minute from the Harbour and Castle Beach). No 2 Albert View is our latest addition and is our most modern & stylish property to date.

What makes this cottage unique

All our properties are inside the historic Tenby town walls, or within minutes walk of them. Leave the car and spend your days on the beaches, going on fishing trips, doing water-sports, exploring Caldey Island or the old town; or use our properties as a base for visiting the huge number of attractions that Pembrokeshire has to offer

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We've had another fantastic holiday in Tenby. China Cottage is the perfect base camp with all amenities close by. We absolutely love Tenby and will most certainly be back. The property is lovely". Miss Roe

"Loved the fact that when we arrived on a wet Saturday afternoon the fire was on, there was milk in the fridge, tea & coffee. What a great welcome and very thoughtful." Mr Dalton

It is so central, family members can just come and go as they please - popping to town shops or beaches within minutes. You won't need the car all week!

Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen is provided; towels available on request. Other: Cosy dining area between the kitchen and living room.

Long weekend February

  • 5 of 5

Chose China Cottage for a long weekend break in February and we were more than pleased, in fact we didn't want to leave. The property is ideally situated in the center of town so there is no need for a car, everything is right there. China Cottage is very spacious and comfortable, it suited the 7 of us perfectly. All in all we had a fab time and would definitely consider it again in the future. Highly recommended!!

Lovely cottage in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a holiday before we all went to University and after deciding on Tenby we found China Cottage. We all found that the cottage was much bigger than we expected and very well presented. The welcome gifts were very much appreciated and a lovely touch and when we had a question about the fireplace Julie was very quick to get back to us.

We had a great time exploring Tenby and we also spent a lot of time at the beach which was less than a two minute walk away (we timed it!). The central location of the cottage was also really great as we didn't have a car but everything was within very easy walking distance.

The only slight drawback was that it could be a little loud on Friday and Saturday nights with people walking past the cottage.

Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay and we had a great time. We would definitely recommend it to a friend

Beautiful cottage, in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we was pleasantly surprised at how big the cottage was, it was the perfect size plus more for our family break away. We was in Tenby for the long course weekend and was right on the start and finish line of the bike course and marathon which made the atmosphere even better.

The location of the cottage is just perfect, the beach, shops and restaurants are just round the corner.

Julie and Mike the owners made us feel very welcome by leaving a little welcome box of goodies for us.

We definitely recommend this cottage and we will definitely be going back there to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys, we loved having you to stay at the Cottage - and we love those who support and take part in such great events as the Long Course Weekend and the Wales Ironman - there's no prettier route in the world, and the whole town gets behind you athletes. See you next year.
