Space 1,050 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Self catering, well appointed, sleeps up to 8, 50 metres from beach

Woodbine Cottage was the subject of an extensive renovation programme that was completed in March 2006. The accommodation is spacious for its eight guests and has the benefit of on-site parking for one vehicle. As Woodbine Cottage is situated within the historic walled town centre, during the months of July and August visitors can experience the pedestrian scheme within Tenby, Pembrokeshire which converts the walled town to a café culture, vehicle free zone in order that the restaurants, coffee shops, public houses and gift shops can be enjoyed safely at a leisurely pace. Woodbine Cottage benefits from two reception rooms with feature fireplaces, a dining room, kitchen and wet room. The kitchen is equipped with all up to date appliances. There are also a laundry room and bedroom downstairs. Upstairs there are three further bedrooms, two with king sized beds and a family bathroom with a roll top bath and Mira shower. Outside is a secluded courtyard area with seating for eight.

Access in July and August: During the months of July and August, dates to be confirmed each year, Tenby operates a car-free zone within the town walls between 11am and 5pm. During this time access is restricted as the streets are utilised by restaurants and bars to create a cafe style atmosphere in the town. A car pass is necessary to be able to drive in and out of Tenby during this restricted period. It is important that you do not lose this pass as it is specific for the property and will need to be given to the next occupants at Woodbine Cottage so that they can enter and leave Tenby. Your co-operation with this is much appreciated.

Free WiFi is available at the property

Practical Matters: Please do not wear stiletto heels as these damage the wooden floors.

Please dispose of all rubbish (location of disposal sites in help file in the property) before you leave and do not leave it outside where the seagulls can destroy the bin bags and spread the rubbish in the street.

Please do not sit on the sofas in wet swim wear.

Please try and rinse off all sand before entering the property. There is an outside tap with hose at the front of the property.

We have dispensed with the kettle Weber barbecue as this was unused, but we would be grateful if you do decide to barbecue that you use a disposable one and please do not place it on the glass table outside.

Pets: We welcome pets throughout the year, but ideally only between the months of October and April because access to the beaches with animals outside of these months is restricted. Please contact us to discuss further as we have pets ourselves.

Pets are not allowed upstairs nor on the furniture downstairs and must not be left alone in the property.

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Woodbine Cottage is very conveniently situated, being close to the town centre with all the shops, pubs and restaurants as well as the glorious beaches which Tenby offers.

The house has two very large and comfortable double bedrooms, as well as a smaller upstairs bedroom with single beds. It also has a further single bedroom downstairs. The upstairs bedroom is large and well equipped and there is a further shower room downstairs. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. The two living rooms are large and well equipped. The whole house has character and for the week we were there, with eight adults, a six year old and a baby, along with two dogs is proved to be a great choice. The best recommendation is that we would book it again without any hestitation.

Great cottage and brilliantly appointed.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed as a group of 8 with 2 dogs in July 2016. The cottage is amazingly appointed, literally a stones throw from South Beach and a two minute walk from the centre of Tenby. The cottage provides everything you could need. The two sitting rooms mean there is plenty of room for all and the large dining table (and outside table) meant we could all sit down together at each meal. Really enjoyed out stay and already planning to return.

Only criticism we had was that for 6 adults the sleeping arrangements are tight. The ground floor room has a single bed with a trundle bed to create sleeping for 2 people. When this bed is pulled out there is literally no room for anything else. A better solution might be to put 2 smaller single beds in here like they have on the first floor.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your welcome review of Woodbine. We have thought long and hard about how best to arrange the sleeping arrangements in the 4th bedroom that takes the number of guests to the maximum of 8. We have found over the years that keeping that room with a single (trundle) bed is the best option as often the [elderly] guest who stays there appreciates the extra room given that the downstairs wet room is close by and suits them if they have a mobility problem. However, we will continue to monitor use of this room and respond to our guests requests as best as possible. Thank you once again for your constructive comments, much appreciated. We look forward to having you stay again in the future.

Stunning cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Woodbine Cottage is beautifully presented in a perfect location close to South beach with sea views and parking. Extremely well equipped throughout with tasteful bed linen and towels provided. Spacious and comfortable with the joy of a tranquil enclosed rear courtyard. We stay twice yearly and always enjoy a relaxing holiday. Owners very accommodating, highly recommended.

Excellent family holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Woodbine Cottage is a lovely family holiday cottage only a few yards from the sea front. It has excellent facilities and is very well equipped. We found it to be very clean and maintained and had a home from home feeling. Communication with the owner was excellent with no issues at all, I would have no hesitation in recommending Woodbine Cottage. Woodbine Cottage has an excellent location within Tenby, having visited Tenby many times we would say that Woodbine Cottage is the nicest accommodation we have used.

Tenby is a beautiful place, great for walking and with some fantastic restaurants - try The Plantagenet, Ocean Restaurant and Top Joe's, they are all different but all very good.

Tenby is a must to visit and Woodbine Cottage is the perfect family accommodation.

Great location and child friendly

  • 5 of 5

The property was well located for the town centre and the beaches. The accommodation was comfortable and the house was well appointed with lots of equipment and things for the little ones to do. The rear patio was a bonus and we used that a lot.

woodbine cottage was amazing..

  • 5 of 5

I must say we had an amazing weeks stay in woodbine cottage. Everything you wanted was there, like home from home.Absolutely stunning house, well furnished, very clean,really lovely bedrooms, especially the one downstairs, my dad loved that room to himself. And has its pet friendly even better, we could'nt go anywhere without our dogs. Enclosed back garden was lovely, as we had the weather it was nice to sit outside and chill. The area was the best, everything you needed was around you, from supermarkets, restaurants, pubs etc,. Such a small town but loads going on. And even the beach just at the end of the street, the views was amazing. We will definitely be returning . I recommend this houses for sure..
