  • "We had a lovely stay at The Boathouse last week."

    The property was just as it said in the brochure, if not better, and the location was ideal as it was only about 15 minutes to walk into town. Although there are houses surrounding the property, it was a really quiet place to stay. It was amazing and we will definitely be back next year! As for the property owners, they were really helpful and friendly and always there if you needed help for anything.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review, and thank you for booking to return next year, we look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "The PERFECT family getaway!"

    The Boathouse is a stunning holiday home that has everything you need. So we’ll equipped, spacious and the beds are extremely comfy. We visited for a week with our 2 children age 6 and 2. Everything was close by so we were able to do so much. The nearby beaches are beautiful and Folly Farm and Tenby Dinosaur Park are less than a 15 minutes drive. We will definitely book The Boathouse again if staying in Tenby.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. We enjoy hearing that our guests have had great days out in the area, and we'd love to welcome you back again if you ever come back to Tenby. Property Owner

  • "The accommodation is only three years old and built to a high standard."

    All the facilities are modern with quality furnishings. Tanya, our host, was very welcoming and helpful. The Boathouse is only about ten minutes walk from the centre of Tenby and has its own off-road parking space. We had a lovely week here and would thoroughly recommend it.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Boathouse and the lovely walks Tenby and Pembrokeshire have to offer. Property Owner

  • "The internal accommodation itself was very comfortable and clean, had all the facilities you would expect and the hamper left for us was a nice touch."

    We were however disappointed to find that the Boathouse was in fact in the very narrow back yard of the owners house on a narrow plot in between other houses. This felt very hemmed in and meant you had to drive past the owners very large front window/patio doors when leaving and returning which wasn’t very private and quite disconcerting. We were also disappointed that the patio/parking area had builders equipment stacked and rubbish bins scattered around. All in all, this made it all feel very underwhelming and quite depressing which was a shame as the accommodation itself was comfortable and pleasant.

    Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your New Years Hamper, and that you found the accommodation to be clean and comfortable. We want all our guests to enjoy their stay at the Boathouse, as you will see from our previous reviews we have always received positive feedback. We will take on board your comments with regards to the yard, and once our new bin storage facility is complete I can assure you our wheelie bins and recycle storage boxes will no longer visible.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Boathouse."

    So nice to find a detached, self-contained property so close to the beach. The property was very well-equipped, welcoming, cosy and warm. The Christmas tree and decorations were a lovely touch. We hope to visit again next year.

    Thank you for choosing the Boathouse, we are pleased you liked the Christmas decorations, enjoyed your stay and felt warm and cozy. We look forward to welcoming you again next year. Property Owner

  • "The boathouse is a beautifully designed house."

    The upstairs living area is really light and spacious with a vaulted ceiling and lots of Velux windows. The showers deliver loads of hot water. We had a really nice week. Plenty of space for parking, very friendly family who own the property (the Boathouse is in their back garden). Good location, Co-op is a few minutes walk away, centre of Tenby is a 10 min walk away. Highly recommended.

    The property has ample parking and is within easy walking distance of the town, although not on the coast itself as its name - The Boathouse - might suggest. It proved to be an excellent base for our holiday.

    All the mod cons you could possibly need. The accommodation was spotless and Tanya and her family were so welcoming and couldn’t do enough for you! The location of the Boathouse is great too.

Tenby is a beautiful part of the country to visit and hopefully we’ll be back one day!

The property

In the lovely seaside town of Tenby, you'll find The Boathouse, a modern masterpiece boasting a fantastic layout and some excellent features.

Wonderfully suited for a family holiday, this property has two bedrooms and benefits from a shared lawned garden for the kids to run around, and is also close to the centre of town and the coast.

Going in through the front door will bring you to the stylish kitchen decked in bright units and home to all the appliances you'll need, including a dishwasher.

This space also has a breakfast table for four, and even has a utility cupboard housing a washing machine and tumble dryer, hidden behind a sliding cupboard door, showcasing the clever and well-thought design of the property.

A ground-floor shower room sits across from the kitchen, featuring a large modern shower, while upstairs on the first floor you will find the family bathroom, where you can spend time soaking in the spacious tub drenched in the natural light from the Velux window.

The first floor has a Cedar wood-panelled wall and flooring, exposed beams and ceiling windows, showcasing the reason for its namesake, giving this bright open space a warming and homely touch.

Two smart dark blue sofas sit in front of the TV, perfect for getting together and putting a favourite film on to watch.

After making a delicious meal downstairs in the kitchen, bring it up and serve it on the beautiful dining table before you retire to the bedrooms.

The Boathouse has two bedrooms; a twin and a super-king-size, both with zip/link abilities so you can ensure you have the sleeping arrangement you prefer, with a jack-and-jill lockable door between the rooms which can be useful for those with young children.

In the summer months you can really make use of the garden outside, with some outdoor seating on the patio and a lawned area you can sit out and soak up the rays.

If you've come with little ones, then take them down to the safe Harbour Beach for a play in the sand and maybe a first dip in the sea, or head over to Castle Beach which has an easy access slipway to get down to it.

Walkers are in luck, as Tenby has great coastal walks, one of the most popular being the Pembrokeshire Coast Path providing stunning views of Saundersfoot Bay from the headland at Monkstone.

A visit to Caldey Island by ferry is perfect way to spend the day, with more than a thousand years of prayer and peaceful living on this holy island making it a haven of tranquillity.

Set sail for The Boathouse this year, and enjoy this wonderfully designed house in the bustling town of Tenby.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Pembroke 11 miles; Carmarthen 26 miles.

The bustling seaside resort of Tenby, known within Wales as “The Jewel in the Crown", is majestically positioned on the spectacularly beautiful 'Welsh Riviera'. Tenby is part of the stunning 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast National Park where the water is warmed by the Gulf Stream and the county is one of the sunniest places in the UK. Enclosed by medieval walls, this beautiful town features a maze of cobbled streets, hosting an array of quirky shops, indoor locally-sourced food market, tea rooms and tempting restaurants. Almost three miles of stunning, Blue Flag-awarded beaches provide a variety of watersports, whilst walkers and cyclists can enjoy the local flora and fauna on the coastal paths, something the competitors of the world-renowned Tenby Iron-Man contest (held in mid-September) haven’t time for! A boat trip to Caldey Island is recommended to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the monastery and island scenery, and you can enjoy seal and puffin sightings en-route! Explore the magnificent Tudor Merchant's House, or visit the nearby resorts of Saundersfoot or Manobier. For teens and younger visitors, Oakwood Theme Park provides a brilliant, fun-filled day out whilst Folly Farm offers everything from old-fashioned fairground rides to animals both local and exotic! The perfect location for an enjoyable and varied holiday.
