  • "An excellent stay in Tenby."

    The photos of the property do not do it justice, it is a lot bigger that we anticipated and had a wonderful stay. Location wise is perfect, less than 10 min walk to all the beaches, bars and restaurants. Fabulous stay and we'll be back next year. Thanks Gareth and Emily.

  • "What a lovely apartment, the pictures didn't lie, great kitchen & living room."

    Perfect location with an easy walk into Tenby. Even though the weather wasn't nice, it was great to have the garden space. The lovely touch of milk, tea & coffee upon arrival was much appreciated

  • "Really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment."

    Great location and a real bonus to have the garden and to have parking literally outside the door. If we revisit Tenby we’ll definitely stay again.

  • "Beautiful apartment, spotless, great facilities and location spot on."

    The apartment was better than expected and larger too. We were two couples and had plenty of room with a nice quiet private garden.

  • "Property ideally situated for strolling into Tenby and exploring Pembrokeshire."

    Parking literally by the front door was helpful. Lovely bright lounge for relaxing in the evening with bonus of a small garden. Good to have 2 En-suite bathrooms. Master bedroom was extremely spacious. Would certainly recommend and will definitely return.

  • "The property is immaculately presented and much larger than the photos suggest!"

    Each bedroom has its own en-suite with a bath in one . Sainsbury’s, the town centre and also the beautiful North beach are all only a short walk away . We had beautiful weather while staying there and were able to open the patio doors to the decking and private garden where a blackbird serenaded us daily . There is a dedicated parking bay for each apartment right outside the door which is a real bonus in Tenby ! While we had no problems and didn’t need to contact the owners during our stay, all prior communication was friendly and detailed . If we return to Tenby we will definitely book Castle at the Hideaway again .

  • "Excellent property, stylish and comfortable, ideal for 2 older couples, great to be able to walk into Tenby and leave the car, but also to get out and about to see the lovely area, and we even had good weather for most of the time."

    We preferred Saundersfoot for eating out - easy parking, free after 6.30pm, and a range of good pubs/restaurants to choose.

  • "I will start with the positives and hope that the negative observations will be taken into account."

    The accommodation was exceptionally clean and in good condition, The bedding was immaculate and beds comfortable. The location quiet and sleep was not disturbed by the close proximity to the town which enabled us to walk to town without the use of a vehicle. Now the downside: the main bedroom had no power socket near the mirror. Drying your hair without a mirror is possibly a male but certainly not a female consideration. The remains of a single toilet roll only were in both bathrooms. If toilet rolls are not to be provided, may I suggest that, that information is included on the notes before arrival. The shower cubicle in the main bedroom albeit of the latest design had no-where to house soap, shampoo, conditioner etc. Everything had to be placed on the shower base. A storage unit is required in that shower. Also, a shelf or two by the sink would be an advantage especially if two guests occupy that room. The non-provision of toilet gel renders the toilet brushes useless. Surely guests are not expected to bring their own toilet cleaner? There was ample supply of both washing machine and dishwasher tablets which I imagine are rarely used so why not toilet cleaner.? The toilet base in the small bedroom En-suite is unstable, that needs urgent attention. Once again shelves are sadly lacking in that bathroom. And I challenge anyone to locate the power sockets in that bedroom. After crawling on hands and knees we eventually found them BEHIND the headboards. The only power source in that room is inaccessible. Also, there are no shelves for personal belongings. A set of shelves on the wall behind the door is essential particularly for two guests. My friend used the spare bed for all her personals and toiletries. The television had limited stations maybe 8 or 9 certainly not a normal Freeview selection as was expected. The kitchen supplied a knife block none of which could peel vegetables. A small sharp knife is essential along with a strong pair of scissors neither of which were supplied. Why was there only one tiny tea towel? Surely funds could stretch to more than one? There again another purchase was required along with toilet rolls. Finally, we objected to the instruction of stripping the bed linen before we vacated. The cost of our November 4-night break exceeded £500 for two guests, with that in mind we did not expect to strip our beds like hostel guests. If (expired) Covid precautions is the explanation, then perhaps I can suggest the wearing of gloves rather than expect paying guests to housekeep on vacating. May I add as an experienced self-catering user this is not the first time I have complained to both Sykes Cottages and owners on the lack of the small obvious details that can make a holiday more comfortable. I do hope that on this occasion my observations are considered. Regards Sue Whitford

    Location is excellent, just a few minutes walk to the High Street but set in a quiet cul-de-sac. We particularly liked the private terrace and garden accessed through large folding doors from the living room. The owners, Emily and Gareth are very pleasant and obviously take great care of the property. We would definitely recommend this property.

  • "We have just returned from a week's stay in the Castle at the hideaway in Tenby."

    We have been to tenby a few times before and chose this property due to its central location and amazing looks on the photos. We were really impressed with the size of the property and it had everything we needed, great kitchen and a good shower. We used it as a base for long course weekend and the beach is literally a 2 minute walk away, but once you are back inside the property you would think you are miles away from anywhere it was so quiet! We will definitely be recommending this property and staying again ourselves.

The Hideaway

The Hideaway is exactly as its’ name indicates – hidden away from the bustle of the town and yet a short stroll to all the town has to offer - three exquisite beaches, boat trips to Caldey Island, the historic town walls, cobbled streets with quaint gift shops, eating places, pubs and the famous coast path. The complex consists of six serviced apartments. With hints of the seaside they have their own private entrances and are equally delightful booked individually and are perfect for a group of friends together as they offer a variety of styles and sleeping arrangements. The added bonus is the off road parking, park the car up and stroll into town for lazy days on the beach, have afternoon tea and then stroll back to your welcoming holiday apartment. Of course you may wish to explore a little further and from these charming holiday apartments short drives will open up exciting and varied days out. Action packed days at Oakwood Theme Park, Heatherton, The Dinosaur Park or The Welsh Zoo will tire out the children. Relaxing days strolling round the historic castles or the magnificent St Davids Cathedral may appeal or find the hidden St Govans Chapel at the bottom of the rocks. Glorious days out for all to enjoy.
