6 Rectory Court, Tenby
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This property is situated in a very quiet cul de sac about five minutes walk away from the busy little seaside town of Tenby. More information from our own website www.rectorycourt.co.uk It is inspected regularly by VisitWales, the official body responsible for tourism in Wales and we are pleased to have been awarded five stars for Rectory Court, classed as "exceptional" and "excellent". A large comfortable lounge with flat screen T.V. is situated opposite the modern, well-equipped kitchen . Stairs lead up to the modern bathroom with bath and shower. One bedroom has a double bed and the other has two single beds. There is also a baby cot.The house has central heating.
To the rear is a safe outdoor area with a table and chairs, quite safe for children, they cannot escape ! In front is private space for car parking and also a garage. We think this house is ideal for exploring Tenby on foot and lazing on the beaches and harbour . Because of the private parking it is also ideal for touring the wonderful National Park with some of the finest beaches and most spectacular coastal scenery in Europe. The Preseli mountains are about 18km away and offer excellent walks. The walking on the coastal path is spectacular and has to be experienced.
For children the beaches are great fun and you can go sea kayaking or take a fishing trip in one of the many boats that offer all tackle plus the expertise of the skipper. Folly Farm is also a wonderful adventure playground for children of all ages. Oakwood is a large theme park suitable for older children. Heatherton offers a variety of activities and a visit the the Dinosaur Park is also great. There is a huge amount to do in the area, the only thing missing is enough time to do it all !

|Further details indoors|
The kitchen is modern and well equipped with an electric cooker, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a washing machine and a deep freeze. The units are of solid timber and warm coloured ceramic tiles on the floor add to the relaxed ambience of this property. There are so many restaurants within easy walking distance that the kitchen is a bit of a luxury !
The lounge has a large comfortable leather settee plus arm chairs and the colour scheme is neutral and relaxing. The most photographed harbour in Wales and its best beach are within five minutes walk. Our situation is very peaceful compared to the properties in the town centre itself which tend to be a little noisy at times.
|Further details outdoors|
This house is to all intents and purposes detached since it is joined to the next house only by the garage. There is a secure sitting out area to the rear with a table, chairs and BBQ.
The location is a quiet cul de sac yet within easy walking distance to the harbour, beaches, medieval Town Wall and all the restaurants that Tenby has to offer. The Pembrokeshire National Park coastal path and the Wales coastal path are all a short walk from the house. Just stroll the streets and enjoy the amazing views through the narrow lanes and streets out to sea towards Caldey Island ( regular boat trips available ) and the Napoleonic fort on St Catherine's Island. Tenby museum on Castle Hill is a real gem. Many of our guests enjoy taking their children on fishing trips ( all tackle supplied ) or kayaking out in the bay. Tenby is too sheltered by Caldey island for good surfing but Manorbier beach ( about 5 miles away ) is excellent as are many other beaches in the county.
German, French , Welsh and English are spoken.

Check out is 10am.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
West Wales is a very mixed area of of rolling unspoit countryside dotted with many Norman castles, a fact that has ensured that the Tenby area is English speaking whereas the surrounding counties are predominantly Welsh speaking.
The variety is amazing, quiet countryside, rolling mountain and moorland but above all it is the wild and rugged coastline with towering cliffs interspersed with remote and quiet beaches that mark this area. You can walk the whole of the coastline on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and visit such iconic locations as St Davids. There are many possibilities for boat trips to offshore islands such as Caldey and Skomer and Tenby harbour is ideal for messing about in boats or even some serious saling. Tenby Sailing club is situated right on the harbout wall and overlooks the rows of fishing and leisure craft bobbing on the waves in front of you whilst you enjoy a drink in the club or on the terrace directly over the harbour. Tenby is currently home to the Iron Man Wales competition so if you want to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 120 miles and run 26 miles all in one go Tenby is the place for you ! (You can also watch the action from a comfortable restaurant ). The Botanical Garden of Wales is not too far away and under its huge glass dome you can enjoy many varieties of plants. For history addicts there are many castles with blood curdling histories and Carew Castle provides many activities for the children and is the site of a tidal mill. Pembroke Castle is a real fort and has to be seen to be appreciated. Folly Farm and Heatherton are just ten minutes drive ( buses are also available ) away and both are brilliant days out for children and adults as indeed is Anna's Welsh Zoo, just opposite Heatherton.
Tenby is a very quaint old harbour town of about 5000 inhabitants. It is surrounded by the medieval Town Wall which gives the town a very compact and intimate ambience. There are two superb beaches with wonderful views out to the islands of Cadey and St. Catherine's. There are regular boat trips to Caldey and also seal safaris and fishing trips available.
Go coasteering ( jumping off cliffs and scrambling along the sea margins), sounds crazy to me but is very popular, as is sea kayaking which is also a lot safer. There is a huge amount to do, walking, golfing ( 10 minutes walk from the house ) and fishing, sea river and lake. There are also many attractions such as the Dinosaur Park, Manor House animal Park, Oakwood theme park, Heatherton activity center and so on. Horse riding is of course readily available in such a rural area. Pembroke Castle is a must if you like the medieval knight scene, kids can do some great brass rubbing.

We actually take our guests to the property and show them around besides which detailed written instructions are provided for its location. They do not have to drive around looking for it at the end of a long journey. The cleaning of the property is very carefully carried out at the end of each let.
