  • "A flawed gem I feel."

    .. Being withing a couple minutes walk of both Sainsbury's and co op, the beach, car park and chippy is great. Nice little back yard which was ideal for our small dog. The house is generally well equipped. Beds are nice and comfy. Lounge is spacious and comfy. Wi-fi definitely a plus as cell signal is pretty hit and miss we found. Car park is close and only 25 for a week. Street is quiet in general Yes the listing mentions about the bathroom but in practice it's just not enough. Impossible for me to stand in the bath and the hand shower isn't really suitable for taking a shower. The ceiling/door heights are another issue as every door and landing passage had different heights or angles. Constantly ducking and weaving as you move around. I cracked my head sharply on the lounge one on the third day, as I misjudged the height while distracted, and it took a second day for me to feel normal again. Love the location and the house in general but for us it's a one time visit. Getting back from a day at the beach and washing all four of us plus dog just took so long. Really could also use a clothes line as the only drying rack is quite small and again not really suitable for a person house.

    unfortunately the geography of the property does not allow a second bathroom and as mentioned the sloping ceiling does not allow a shower . We have been transparent in our description (The family bathroom offers an elegant freestanding bath and hand-held shower) and supplied an image of the bathroom , the property dates back over a century so naturally some door entries are smaller than others , we believe this retains the charm and beauty of the property , thanks for the feedback Property Owner

  • "Well appointed cottage in good location."

    However, there should definitely be a second bathroom with a walk in shower and toilet. One bathroom is inadequate for a property that could accommodate six adults. Also, the existing bath looks attractive but is impractical. It takes ages to fill and uncomfortable to lay in. The hand held shower is difficult to use as you can’t stand up under the sloping ceiling, and it is very easy for the floor to get wet.

  • "Honestly the best place we’ve ever stayed."

    Really well styled and everything you could want. It had the best of everything - the owners own a lifestyle shop in town (I could have spent every penny I own in there) - and you can tell that they have wanted to create a space that is comfortable with a touch of luxury - exactly what you want on holiday. We have two young children and they loved it as well. I’d probably recommend bringing a stair gate as there are a lot of stairs but even with a very inquisitive and independent 1 year old it was easy enough to manage. Access to town is fantastic (parked in train station that’s just around the corner) and there’s a little playground about 5 minutes walk away. Thanks for a really great stay and I have no doubt that we will be back in the future.

    thanks hannah , we are so glad you enjoyed it Dewi Property Owner

  • "An amazing cosy, large, well equipped cottage in a fantastic location."

    Even storm eunice didn't ruin Tenby for us, what beautiful beaches, cafes, bars, shops and all very dog and kid friendly. The cottage had everything we needed and felt like home immediately, we would absolutely recommend. We went to Heatherton theme park, excellent and the LC waterpark in Swansea, also excellent. We ate at the Harbwr, Qube, the Cove and drank at the lovely Tenby Arms. A great spot for cake and ice cream was Dennys? Down on the beach, a brilliant holiday.

  • "Lovely property and presented immaculately with everything needed for a comfortable stay."

    Very close to town and beaches. Would definitely reccomend. The absence of a separate shower and loo did present some timing issues but for a week we ( a family of 5 with 3 teen girls ) managed! The roll top bath with traditional over shower was a nice addition to the bathroom though. Lovely relaxing environment for our 1st Christmas away.

  • "The property is well situated and very close to the town ."

    its a little bit quirky the way it has been done out .. The kitchen facilities are very good . Bedrooms are comfortable and a good size .. Downsides are that if the house had six people in it the one bathroom would be a problem as no separate shower or WC . Parking can be a problem we parked on the Station Car park 5 minutes away and paid £3 for the week . Overall its a great spot and place to stay and will definitely consider going again in the future .

  • "We had a fantastic week at park place."

    It’s in a great location being a short walk from town and south beach which was great for our dog. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking and a comfortable stay. It does only have one bathroom with a bath (no walk in shower) which may be an issue for bigger groups. We enjoyed a relaxing soak in the big tub! Overall a fantastic stay in Tenby and we can’t wait to come back :)

  • "Quirky house well appointed and very central for Tenby."

    Parking was a little tricky and some of the small road is residents parking permit only, clearly some more local visitors know there is some free parking which made it tricky at times. Once we found a spot we ditched the car and walked / used the train service We had a slight issue with the shower which was quickly resolved - thank you

  • "Perfectly sited for easy access to shops, restaurants and South Beach which was very handy for the dog."

    Tenby is fabulous (it was our first of hopefully many visits) and I can't recommend Pembrokeshire highly enough. The cottage is comfortable but the glaring omission is the lack of a shower/2nd toilet with only a bath which would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues to negotiate. We were only 2 persons in the cottage but I can't imagine being able to have a comfortable stay if our 2 grown up children and their partners had accompanied us. Perhaps an outside shower with hot water might be an easy solution. While the cottage is comfortable and tastefully furnished, a little more attention to detail would help. There are no towel rails or hooks behind the bathroom door where to hang wet towels and more shelving in the bathroom would be useful. The basin in the bathroom is very small and trying to have a shave proved a challenge not made any easier with the lack of lighting above the basin. The kitchen/diner is a lovely space as is the enclosed outside patio. While the rustic dresser is attractive, it would be so much more practical if there were built in cupboards/shelves/drawers as the current packing space is very disorganised and there are a lack of microwave safe bowls. The lounge is comfortable with 2 large couches. An additional side table or 2 would be useful. Upstairs the bed that we slept in was comfortable but I did notice a lack of bedside tables in 1 of the rooms. Also a couple of the light bulbs had blown - again a lack of attention to detail. Although mentioned in information supplied and in other feedback, we had no problems with on street parking. In summary, this is a very well sited cottage and with a little more attention to details could be made so much better. If you don't mind a single bath and toilet for a cottage priced for 6 persons then you won't be disappointed. Finally the welcome hamper was most appreciated.

  • "Lovely interior , enclosed garden is a great bonus , kitchen is equipped fantastically and the bed are really comfy ."

    The downsides with 3 adults and 2 preteen girls staying was not having a separate toilet , the bath/mixer shower was a bit awkward to use with the low ceiling and the echoing/creakyness of the wooden stairs, floor and latches on the doors . Probably would have got used to this after a week though and had the situation with restrictions in Wales not still been in place it may not have bothered me (stress level wise). However , it's ideally situated, lovely interior and a nice welcome package when you get there .

  • "The cottage is in an ideal area."

    Nice and quiet but close enough to walk to everything. There is no parking allocated but fortunatley as the weather was so good we managed to park right outside the house and didnt use the car hardly at all. The house had everything needed including radio,hairdryer and all linen. it was so cool aswell on an evening and when we had had such warm days it was nice. The beds were the most comfofortable ive ever slept in. The one and only downside to the whole holiday was the bathroom. luckily me and my husband are both mobile so wasnt a major problem. However the bath is very deep and slippy needing a step to get in it. There is a shower attachment however you cant stand up as the ceiling is so low. The house really needs a shower. If the house was at full capacity you would find the bathroom situation very problematic. As i said though this was the only downside

    It's centrally located, we could walk everywhere easily, we managed to park easily too however this may be more of an issue in high season. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable. It's quite a quirky cottage and the owners have done a fantastic job modernising it and including every home comfort. The garden was a surprise, much larger than we anticipated. Tenby itself is delightful and we will definitely be back.

  • "Wow - all I can say is that 5 Park Place really exceeded our expectations."

    It’s so close to everything in Tenby - 5 minute walk to South Beach and 5 minutes into town. There’s a Sainsbury’s really close by which was so handy given we were self catering. The house itself is lovely - finished to a really high standard and bright, light and airy. The decor was really nice with lots of little quirky design details which made us feel really at home. We had our dog with us and everything was ideal for her - a nice back yard that was secure and had seating for us when the weather was nice. The owners sent us a fact sheet / guide to Tenby and the house a couple of weeks before we travelled and it was really helpful, recommending local places to eat etc. The did warn us that parking on the road can be difficult as there’s no residents permit with the house, however, we didn’t find it a problem at all - we were always able to park on a nearby street if not the street itself. It was our first time visiting Tenby and we loved it - it’s really got all the right ingredients - beautiful beaches and lovely shops, cafes and restaurants. We will definitely be back and would love to book 5 Park Place for our return visit!

  • "We stayed in a lovely cottage for Christmas on Park Place, Tenby."

    This cottage we were worried might be a bit small but the way the owners had designed the cottage made it actually really spacious and all the decor was very trendy and stylish that is made the stay even better than we might of expected. The bath was very stylish and I want that exact bath now. The whole cottage was extremely clean and with all the amenities you could need from a caffetier to mixing bowls- which was great as we were baking over Christmas. Everything seemed very new so I guess we were lucky. Good outdoor space too, we did not really use as it is winter but in the summer I can only imagine it would be fab for bbq’s! Only thing I would say we missed is an extra toilet and a shower as with a full house this can get a bit annoying But no way a deal breaker as me and my family would happily come again to this lovely cottage by the sea. Also would recommend for anyone booking this cottage to put your kids in the loft bedroom as the ceilings were quite low, however again for me and my sister (in our mid to late 20’s) this was fine for a weeks break so not a massive deal breaker also. Would also like to say thank you to the owners for allowing our dog to stay, who wasn’t allowed upstairs but that is fine and the same rule in our house! But also for going the extra mile and putting up a real Christmas tree prior to our arrival and fully decorated it really did make the cottage feel like our home for Christmas! Thank you for a great stay and would recommend this cottage to anyone! It is a cosy and stylish cottage, 5mins walk to a lovely little town to wonder around and 5mins walk to the beach is just amazing!

  • "This House far exceeded our expectations & we were blown away by the quality of the home."

    It really was better than a home & was super comfy. There was so much for my grandkids to do indoors when it rained, the house has so many games to use & the Tv was excellent for movie night. The back garden is very secure for my dog & we enjoyed a meal or two in the sunny garden. We were getting fitter from the amount of stairs which wouldn’t suit any family with disabilities. The quality of the beds was awesome so much so we had to check what make the mattress was to buy one for our bed. We often left our car parked on the street & walked into Tenby Town in just a few minutes or within minutes we walked to Tenby south beach which was lush with deep golden sand beach. We absolutely recommend this House & will definitely be staying there again. I would give this House 5* for comfort & quality & location.
