About this location
The Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire is a magical part of the United Kingdom with an outstanding coastline - judged joint second in the world by National Geographic Traveler magazine alongside the Tutukaka Coast in New Zealand. Not to be outdone, Lonely Planet named Coastal Wales the "best region on Earth" to visit in 2012. The county enjoys a mild climate and wonderful light, which will be appreciated by artists and photographers alike.
The county has some of the best beaches in the UK, including the beaches in Tenby, Manorbier, Barafundle and Freshwater West, the latter having recently featured in Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood" and both "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films. More recently, scenes from "Snow White and the Huntsman" were filmed at Marloes Sands.
Opportunities to walk along the coastline abound with Britain's only dedicated coastal National Park extending from Amroth to Poppit Sands, a distance of 299 km.
In addition to the local castles, we recommend a visit to the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby, the remains of Lamphey Bishops Palace, Bosherston Lily Ponds and St David's.
Tenby and St Florence are steeped in history and are renowned for the warm welcome the two communities extend to visitors to the area. South Pembrokeshire is stunningly picturesque with its many sandy beaches, magnificent coastline, rolling countryside and heritage sites.
Tenby itself has 3 Blue Flag beaches and is generally thought to be the prettiest seaside town in Wales. Established by the Normans as a fortified town, Tenby has retained its town walls. Within the walls, the town is a maze of narrow streets, which are pedestrianised during the day in summer when the many bars and restaurants offer al fresco seating.
Manorbier beach is just 4km from the house and has recently been awarded a prestigious Green Coast Award in recognition of its cleanliness, high standard of water quality and environmental management.
Established in 1888, Tenby Golf Club is renowned for being the birthplace of golf in Wales and has recently been included in the first edition of The Rolex World's Top 1000 Golf Courses.

"Our second stay and just as magical as the first."
This was our second stay in Ty Garan and as our first stay was perfect we were anxious that our stay this time would be as magical for us. Ty Garan's warm and welcoming atmosphere just wraps itself around you, the people of St.Florence, again welcomed us all into their community. A very tranquil place to stay.

"Magical place to stay."
From the start of booking our holiday everything was made so easy. Exploring this beautiful house was magical!.The space and all the equipment provided were clean and immaculate. This house is in a very friendly, community, village. A great place to relax and enjoy being part of it, if only for a short while. We would recommend it to anyone, once you've experienced it, you'll want to go back again and again.

"Plenty of Space to Hide from Teenage Children - BLISS!!!"
We had a lovely week at Ty Garan and although we are not Welsh speakers, the owners had left several clues about the name of the house, so we soon gathered it meant Heron House. Very, very, very well equipped and the games room was a welcome addition for the adults (some of whom pretended to be playing Foosball for the sake of the kids!!! Conservatory is very large and bright, so plenty of light and warmth in the kitchen every morning. Tableware of good quality and plenty of it, so no need to worry about the dish washer between meals. Only possible problem might be the outside steps for older people, but my 77 year old mother managed them well enough. I've stayed in many a holiday home over the years and this one was the best yet. So much space that you can row with your teenagers every morning and then ignore each other all day - heaven!!! Granny became a jigsaw fan and battled with Britain throughout the week. All in all, everyone had a really good time and we'd go back in a heartbeat.

"Superb family acomodation ,especially for an all age group, in beautiful surroundings."
This beautiful family home provides everything one could need for a fabulous holiday. Our group of 2 grandparents, 3 grandson 9, 7 and 7 months and their respective parents, enjoyed an exceptionally relaxing week in top class accommodation. With so much space, everyone was able to relax in comfort. The games room is a fantastic area for all ages, amazingly well equipped, as is the rest of the house. The tranquility of the surroundings was a huge bonus.
The local pub, The Parsonage with real ale and very good food is a 5 minute walk away. The staff were most welcoming. There is a good sized beer garden and a great children's room.
Tenby is just a short drive away and there are several attractions on the main road just outside St Florence. A perfect hideaway!!

"Family Holiday in St Florence, Near Tenby"
My family stayed at Ty Garan for a week. The Welsh weather was unpredicatble and as such a good base was a neccessity. Ty Garan was great, with plenty of games and books to entertain us all. The property has lots of space, there were 7 of us and we had plenty of room. It is very well maintained and has good quality fittings and furnishings. It was also very clean.
The village is small but has a really handy local shop and a couple of pubs and Tenby is just down the road. There is also several different childrens things to do within a mile of the property including a zoo owned by Anna Ryder-Richardson (of Changing Rooms fame!).
I would definately come back again.

"Another Wonderful Stay At 'Our Second Home'"
My first visit to stay at Ty Garan (Heron House) was in May 2003, and since that first step through the doorway, and my subsequent visits (which now total approximately 3-4 months worth of staying on weekly breaks and mini-breaks), it feels like home from home.
We've seen the property through it's renovation and extention, during which the warmth of Ty Garan being a family home, as well as a holiday property rental, has never been lost.
It's a wonderfully equipped house and perfect for larger gatherings to celebrate any occasion - I've stayed there with family and friends, all of whom have fallen in love with Ty Garan the moment they have stepped through the door too.
Blair and Julie are incredibly generous and trusting with their home - thank you - can't wait for our next weekly jaunt down to St Florence at TG in September this year.

"1 word - PERFECT"
We had high expectations of Ty Garan, the pictures we had seen and childhood memories of the area were surely setting us up for a disappointment…but we couldn't have asked for better.
Tastefully decorated, homely and comfortable with a hint of luxury and ideally situated all of our needs were met in this spacious holiday home. Clean and well maintained, I would dare anyone to find a fault in the haven Blair and Julie have created with great care. From the well kitted out kitchen to the tourist information leaflets to the comfortable beds and sunny terrace everything was perfect.
Thank you Julie and Blair – you made a great holiday awesome. We will definitely be back next year!

"The delight of Ty Garan never fails to please."
This, our third visit, was the first with full family, rather than friends, for a whole week, and it proved equal in every respect. With its many sitting areas, it's easy to find a quiet moment to oneself, and the children would stay all day in the Games room, if allowed. Its location is perfect for access to both countryside and coast, and with Tenby and Narberth close to hand, caters for all tastes.
