About the property

Crackwell Street, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Overlooking Harbour and North Beach

Overlooking the North Beach and the picturesque harbour the house is a short 2 minute walk onto any one of the three beautiful blue flag beaches of Tenby or a short 20 steps into the town itself. Tenby is a wonderful holiday destination and caters to all types: Family beach holidays, coastal walkers, surfers, Iron-Man athletes, mountain bikers.

With six bedrooms and four bathrooms, Whistler House has been refurbished to cater well to family get-togethers, Christmas get-aways or multiple family holidays - there's space for all. It has wifi availability throughout as well as all the amenities expected from a house with a high specification. A brand new kitchen is aimed at being both flexible and capable of catering easily for up to 16 guests.

Out on the garden patio you can enjoy barbecues and large group meals or just sit back and watch sea and harbour life pass you by.

Recently refurbished, we bought Whistler House because we literally fell in love with the sea and harbour views from the garden - it helped that there is a strong rumour that Henry Tudor escaped to the Continent if not from our house then possibly from the tunnels lying underneath the cliff on which we stand.

Tenby has recently won a National award for tourist destination (Silver Best UK Coastal Award 2014) and Whistler House overlooks the Blue Flag North Beach as well as the beautiful and still working harbour from which you can take fishing and tour trips.

IMPORTANT BOOKING NOTE: We are part of the new Ownersdirect online payments facility and they have introduced a c. 6% fee on top of our usual rates. As such Ownersdirect is the one charging you an additional percentage fee on top of our rate for their payment protection. The exact percentage of Ownersdirect fee is based on the price of the house per week. If you wish to save this additional fee, please feel free to contact us and you can book and pay directly with us to a UK bank in GBP. It is your decision but we do have many reviews of previous guests who book direct for your peace of mind. However if you pay via Ownersdirect that's also fine.

About David & Alison Paterson

We live in Hampshire but have both loved Tenby for decades - and having gone there as kids ourselves we took our kids and dreamed about having a house over-looking the beaches of Tenby.

When Whistler House came on the market it was almost too good to be true! In the middle of town, beach and harbour it is quite literally the perfect spot.

We completely re-furbished the house and have tried to anticipate as many needs as possible and to make as much of the place as we can - we hope you like it.

David & Alison Paterson purchased this house in 2014

Why David & Alison Paterson chose Pembroke, Tenby, Saundersfoot & The South Coast

The house dates back to the 1850's and has just the most breath-taking views. Great for sunrises, sunsets and watching the daily activity on the North Beach and Harbour in between. Within minutes you can be on either North or Harbour beaches and jumping in at high tide.

Since buying the property we have also learned that pre-pagers - the back of the house was used to launch the Maroons (flares) to call the crew when the Tenby Lifeboat was launched.

What makes this house unique

Really convenient for both town and beach. Un-interupted views of the Harbour and North Beach

We loved our stay in Whistler House. Everything you could possibly need was available to you... the views across the beach and over the harbour were amazing. We will definitely return.

An amazing house and great location for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have returned from our stay at Whistler House, Tenby. It was wonderful!

The accommodation is furnished to a really high standard and the owners have thought of everything you might need to complete your stay. From nice quality bedding and towels, to scales for weighing the flour to make your early morning pancakes. There are great views of the North beach from the back of the house and when the weather is dry you can sit out on the terrace and enjoy the great views.

The North and South beaches are a really short walk away and the bars, restaurants and shops are within easy access too. They provide choice for everyone! We have never been to Tenby before, but found the town to have a village feel about it. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating.

We will definitely be returning to Whistler House as it provides everything we need to enjoy a great family holiday.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home, everything you needed was there the owners thought of everything. There were 14 ladies and there was room for all of us. The view from the back garden was perfect, I lay in bed and looked at the harbour. Close to the town, just right for a big gathering, made my friends birthday weekend just perfect

Location

From the Owner

The house dates back to the 1850's and has just the most breath-taking views. Great for sunrises, sunsets and watching the daily activity on the North Beach and Harbour in between. Within minutes you can be on either North or Harbour beaches and jumping in at high tide. Since buying the property we have also learned that pre-pagers - the back of the house was used to launch the Maroons (flares) to call the crew when the Tenby Lifeboat was launched.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

North Beach is literally at the bottom of the garden. Castle Beach and Harbour Beach are a 2 minute walk from the front door and South Beach is around 5 minutes walk around the headland of Castle Beach.

All Tenby beaches are Blue Flag and have beautiful golden sand running all the way down to the water. When the tide is out North Beach is best for cricket.

Surfing is possible on South Beach but 5-6 better beaches are no more than 15 miles from Tenby itself when the swell is against us!

Travel:

You do not need a car to enjoy Tenby town from Whistler House, being right in the thick of things, but having one would allow you to explore the excellent Pembrokeshire coastline - but this is also easily done on foot, hiking in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Tenby is easy to find from the M4 passing Cardiff and Swansea and is serviced by Cardiff Airport and ferries to and from Pembroke serve Ireland (Rosslaire).

Distances:

This is Dylan Thomas country - with loads of sites to visit.

Caldey island, a Cistercian Monastery, can be visited only by boat from Tenby Harbour.

St Davids smallest Cathedral city in Britain is around 30 miles away.

For more kid structured adventure and no more than 15 minutes away: Blue Lagoon Water park, Heatherton Activity and Sports Park, Manor House Wildlife Park, Folly Farm Zoo.

Tudor Pembroke Castle 15 Miles

Swansea for shopping and more activities 50 miles

Further Details:

Tenby town has a lot going for it - brilliant pubs, a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, good clothes shopping - especially beachwear, as well as a load of things to do during the day as well as at night.

In Summer we have weekly fireworks displays with live bands and on New Year the place lights up for miles around. The Iron Man challenge is gaining fame and attracting world class athletes - and mountain biking, surfing and hiking are catered for year round in this part of Wales. Sailing is good in the area and plenty of mooring exists for those who like time on the water. Don't miss out on the weekly test launch from the Tenby Lifeboat station too (normally Tuesdays at 6pm).

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Within 2 minutes of Whistler House are restaurants, coffee shops, cafes and pubs as well as three World Class beaches. The house sits over North Beach on Crackwell Street, at the bottom of which one can find the harbour with access to fresh seafood and organised fishing and boat trips. Outside we have the best feature of the house - the patio garden featuring our large shared table - with adequate space for food and drink - BBQ and of course those stunning views - hypnotic in any weather. Outside: One of the most attractive features of Whistler House maximising the views outside of the beach, sea and harbour has been the installation of a modern glass safety balcony - we overlook both beach and harbour though, so all children and dogs playing in the outside areas must be supervised at all times. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and all high quality bed linen is included and laundered weekly. The house is cleaned weekly. More frequent cleaning can be arranged. Other: Our conservatory allows the outside in and anyone sitting there at breakfast or early evening enjoys panoramic views of the Sea in perfect comfort. We also have a Table Football table.
