Overview

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.

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.

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 Tenby

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. Great patio to enjoy un-interupted views of the Harbour and North Beach.

Location

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.

World-class view from brilliant house in delightful Tenby

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a large party. Very good rooms ( a number of our party said how comfortable the beds were) and ample excellent bathrooms.

The ground floor has a huge dining table around which we easily accommodated 13 adults.

There's a cosy lounge with TV and then a breakfast room leading on to the patio with an amazing view of beautiful Tenby harbour and the North beach. The huge Pembrokeshire tides help to make the view constantly changing.

The patio itself has comfortable furniture and large tables where we ate our breakfast throughout our October weekend stay.

Tenby itself , full of alleys and ginnels is a lovely place to just wander in, or wander briefly as you find your way to the South Beach . If you've travelled in Europe you might be a bit sniffy about a 'town beach' . I defy you to remain sniffy after seeing both Tenby beaches. I'd settle for ' Town beaches aren't usually the best - except in Tenby'. They are both magnificent.

Gorgeous location and great sized property, with fantastic views and access to town.

  • 5 of 5

Really great time. Property was conveniently just off the highstreet, superb views and a heartbeat away from the beach. Great for being lazy and grabbing brunch in town or being active and dog walks along the beach.

Amazing house, amazing location,

  • 5 of 5

Everything we could have wanted in a property! We went as a group of 14 and it catered for all our needs and more. The location and views from the garden were stunning, I could have sat there all day. I've only been home two days that I booked to go back again next year as a group. Can't wait. The owner is really friendly and helpful and best part they are just a phone call away if you need anything!!! Thanks again

Excellent accommodation, excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week returning with children and grandchildren to the town of my childhood holidays. The house is perfectly located for both beaches and town and we enjoyed watching sunset across the harbour. House is ideal and safe for young children, we had a toddler and a 4 year old with us and they were able to run around safely. The house is well equipped with everything you need and very comfortable. We were worried about how parking would work before we came but it was cheap and easy in the multi story next to Sainsbury’s and once you have worked out how to nip through town you are there in a flash. In fact we hardly used the cars as everything in on your doorstep. Some of us even walked to Saundersfoot and caught the local bus back.
