WHAT A FANTASTIC WEEK. Weather lovely, accommodation superb, area lovely. Thank you for the use of your home and the helpful tips you gave us about this area. We hope to return in the near future.
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home, the views are so amazing, can't seem to get enough of them. We haven't been to Tenby for over 30 years and had forgotten what a lovely area of the county this is, it was a chance for us to re-visit places and even some new ones. We thought we were in for 2 weeks of bad weather but after the first 4 days when there were times when we couldn't see Tenby for the mist, the weather has been amazing, a mini heatwave. Thank you very much for the bottle of wine and the Welsh cakes and your suggestion of places to visit. Wishing you all the very best in your new season. Thank you.
A great week in this superbly equipped property - mixed weather and we enjoyed Saundersfoot beach, the seal safari (2 porpoises spotted!), the reptile encounter and the fantastic Pembroke Castle. Tenby is lovely, though most places only seem to take cash and the ATMs run out. Best walking route is via alley at bottom right of seascape then left down Narbeth Rd. Baptist church parking (tucked round back of church) was much appreciated. Loads of great places to eat and drink in Tenby and very child friendly.
An amazing place. Fell in love with Tenby. Cooler weather was very welcome. Visited Caldey and Barafundle Bay, Saundersfoot, Freshwater East, Tenby all with a very able bodied 92 year old. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautifully located home.
Lovely house in a great location! Great views! You've provided everything we might expect and much more - such as the collection of DVDs, toys etc. Very comfortable as very peaceful.
It has been a really nice place to stay in. We walked into Tenby everyday and we would remember '10 miles and 970 yards to Narbeth'. One day we walked in 4 times. We went to Carew Castle and found out it was haunted by a ghostly ape. One day we tried to go to Saundersfoot, but we couldn't find a parking space. On that day we did a long 6 mile walk by the lily ponds. To finish the trip off we went to Caldey Island we did a little walk and had some chocolate. Thank you for letting us stay in such a beautiful cottage and the m&m's (they were nice).
Comfortable cottage, very convenient to town and own parking space very useful. Tenby very interesting place to explore its many streets, lots of eating places but some are expensive. We recommend a short drive out A4139 to Lydstep - Lydstep Tavern very good food at reasonable price. Caldey Island on a calm day for sea crossing, take a picnic. Saundersfoot to Wisemans Bridge a nice walk, Bosherston to Broad Haven past Lily Ponds, great beach - eat back at Bosherston at 'Ye Olde Cafe'. Freshwater East doggy beach.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house, we've had a great week.
Thank you for sharing your home with us. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful setting. We were in dire need of an escape from responsibilities at home and your home gave us the peace we needed. We weren't aware of Ironman weekend when we booked but it was a great experience to watch. Thank you once again. P.S. Love your garden!!
