Why Katy Alderson chose Tenby
We love old houses. Bell Tree House is over 400 years old, and reputed to be the second oldest house in Tenby. We also love a challenge, and this lovely house was pleading to be saved. A former hotel, which had been severely damaged in a fire, the house was really a burned out shell, with only a couple of rooms habitable. We learned from the owner that it was once a beautiful family home. Rather than convert the property into apartments, we wanted to return it to the family home it had been in its heyday. Having lots of children of our own, we set about restoring it to what we felt would be a perfect home for a big family. The idea was to create a space in which a group of people of all ages could be together as well as do their own thing. The house is listed and is in the National Park as well as the Tenby Town Scheme, so it was important to preserve as much of its period character as possible (wooden sash windows, lime render, solid wood flooring) but we also wanted to make the most of the opportunity of starting with a completely blank space to put in some modern comforts and design features. We hope that we got the balance right!
What makes this house unique
We think it is a very family friendly home and we are welcoming of children of all ages, and pets. There is a children's play area in the garden and a very big sink by the back door to wash sand off children when they come back from the beach. Perhaps the biggest selling point is the large open plan living space, which easily accommodates a large group of people together, all doing different things.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a HUGE thank you for everything (and for the champers and card, how lovely!). The house was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Everyone there, from 10 years old to 73, loved it. The kitchen/living space was ideal and the little sitting room was great for the kids to have their own space. All in all, I had the best birthday ever
