         Tenby is a truly delightful town which has been a famous and well loved holiday resort for the last two hundred years.

Goscar Rock and Tenby Harbour
North Beach and North Cliff, Tenby

         Wandering through the quaint old streets you come across fantastic sea and coastal views as well as the clean golden beaches (European blue star awards).

         You will find your way to the ancient harbour overlooked by a ruined Norman castle where you can laze away time watching the fishing boats at high tide. Twenty minutes by boat and you reach the monastery island of Caldey, a very special place to while away a day. On your way back you will sail past a Napoleonic fort set on St. Catherine�s Island. Have a coffee in one of the many restaurants overlooking the sea before you head back to your luxury accommodation. This town really does have it all.

         We have two self catering properties of a very high standard for hire, both are subject every year to a very rigorous inspection by Visit Wales. Visit Wales is the official body responsible for tourism in Wales and we are delighted to have been awarded five stars for Rectory Court (described as �excellent� and �exceptional�) and four stars for Maes y Coed ( described as �excellent� ) Maes y Coed would have achieved five stars if it had a bath in addition to the shower). In addition to the quality of the properties we try very hard to make the information on our web site informative and accurate. We live in Tenby and are able to attend to any problems very quickly, not that we normally get any! We keep our pricing as competitive as possible and can always undercut the big letting agencies since we pay them no commission. Just look at some of our guests� comments to judge the quality of the service and accommodation we offer.

         We can only find eight other five star properties in Tenby at the moment and they are all flats, some without private parking, some within the pedestrianized zone with the attendant problems of noise and inaccessibility. Rectory Court is the only five star house with parking that we can find.

Rectory Court

          We think that this house will make an ideal base for your holiday and are very pleased to offer our guests free Wi-Fi. It is a link house, so to all intents it is a detached house joined to the neighbouring property only by the garage. It is situated in a very quiet, peaceful cul-de-sac yet is only four minutes walk from the North Beach from where one has fine views over the North Beach, harbour, Castle Hill and the town. Just fifty yards or so further brings you to the bustle of the town centre and harbour areas with many restaurants, art galleries, pubs with good pub food and all the other attractions within the Town Walls.

          A big advantage of this property is that it is outside the pedestrianised zone which means that you can gain access at all times by car whereas cars are banned within the Old Town between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the summer months. You can imagine the problems this causes guests whose accommodation lies within the Town Walls. Our guests will be able to use their cars whenever they wish and also to have the pleasure of knowing that the car is safely parked in a lockable garage or on the private forecourt whilst still enjoying the cafe culture of the traffic free zone. This is a very rare advantage so close to the town centre and very few properties are able to offer it. The railway and bus stations are about ten minutes walk away. Within a short distance there is a shop where groceries can be bought. There is a Sainsbury supermarket within easy walking distance. In fact you do not really need your car, leave it in the garage all week and have a relaxing time free of it! In fact, all that Tenby has to offer is within easy walking distance. Alternatively the private parking makes this property ideal for guests who want to tour whilst using Tenby as a civilised base.

          The gas central heating (included in the price, as are all fuel charges) will make this property particularly attractive and cosy for those guests who want a refreshing winter break in Tenby.

          The house itself has been furnished and decorated to a very high standard with modern furniture and light neutral colour schemes.The coffee tables of Welsh oak and the cushions from Melyn Tregwynt (outlets in Harrods etc.) complement the delightful atmosphere. The entrance hall (large enough for pushchairs etc.) leads to the comfortable lounge with 32" flat screen quality Panasonic T.V. ( Freeview ),DVD player radio and cassette player. Bring your favourite music and the children's DVDs. There is a leather settee and easy chairs. From the lounge access can be gained to the enclosed courtyard which is an ideal place for young children to play in safety. This courtyard has a barbecue and outdoor table and chairs. Off the entrance hall is the kitchen/diner equipped with modern light coloured kitchen units and all you would expect from a modern well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher, microwave oven , washing machine and fridge. We don't want you to spend your holiday cooking but if you have to then this kitchen will make it a pleasure. There is also a table and seating for four people. The window looks out over the trees in this very quiet and peaceful cul-de-sac. Stairs lead from the hall to the first floor where the pleasantly tiled bathroom is located containing a toilet, wash basin and bath with a shower. There are two bedrooms both furnished and decorated to a high standard with good quality beds: one five foot double in one room and two three foot singles in the other. The garage, 17ft x 8ft (width of the garage door is 7ft), contains a deep freeze. One door leads to the enclosed courtyard and another to the entrance hall of the house. In front of the house is also a private parking area for one car.

Maes-y-Coed Apartment
10 Lady Park, Tenby, Pembrokeshire SA70 8JH

(Sleeps 2 plus cot)

The lounge at Maes-y Coed

View of the lounge at Maes-y-Coed

          This superb apartment has been purpose built and equipped to a very high standard and offers roomy, comfortable and totally self-contained (your own entrance, not shared) accommodation with complete privacy set in very pleasant grounds about twenty minutes walk from the beaches and town centre.We are pleased to be able to offer our guests free Wi-Fi. The decor and quality are very similar to Rectory Court, designated as "exceptional" by Visit Wales. The Welsh name (pronounced �mice er koid�) means �field of trees� and the name is quite a good guide since all you can see from the apartment are trees and greenery. We are fortunate to be able to offer private parking within the grounds which is quite rare in letting properties in Tenby and also of course you will not be hampered by the traffic ban which exists daily (10 a.m. till 5 p.m.) within the Old Town during the main summer months. This ban makes life difficult for residents but is a delight for people who have accommodation outside the Town Walls and who can as a result use their cars at any time of the day.

          We think this apartment is particularly good for walkers since it is set within the famous Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the one hundred and ninety mile long coastal path can be accessed just a short walk from the property. The National Park also runs a shuttle service to take you further affield, dropping you at one point and picking you up further along the path. For the less energetic you can spend a surprising amount of time just strolling the harbour and beaches or enjoying a meal or a coffee in one of the many restaurants scattered throughout the town, many with breath-taking views over the bay and Caldey Island. Most of the pubs offer meals.

          The approach to the apartment is via a very easy flight of garden steps which lead you to the front door and also the very pleasant patio area with a garden table, chairs and a barbecue. The entrance is tiled with Welsh quarry tiles as are the kitchen and bathroom. The rest is carpeted in a pleasant neutral colour. The lounge is large (see plan) and contains a colour T.V. ( Freeview ) and DVD player. There is a very comfortable bed settee, two armchairs and a sideboard with radio, C D and tape player. The kitchen has American oak kitchen units and adjacent is the dining area. Off the lounge is the bedroom with twin beds plus a wardrobe and chest of drawers. En suite is the bathroom with a shower, wash basin and toilet.

          Heating is under the control of guests and there is no extra charge for this.
