About Michael Hockey

The Penally Pad is our family home which all generations of the family enjoy separately & together.

Michael Hockey purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael Hockey chose Penally

We fell in love with Pembrokeshire and the Tenby area, which is walkable or accessed via a single line two carriage train.

From London it is much easier to access than Cornwall as its motorway nearly all the way and we avoid A303 traffic.

Penally beach even at peak season is not busy so going to the beach late doesn't mean you can’t find somewhere for a large family.

Nature walks, surfing and lots of children’s activities like Heatherton are all very close by.

What makes this house unique

- Fiber broadband (50mbps)

- Sky TV

- PS3 & Blueray player

- Traditional pub 100m from the end of the garden

- Balcony looking over the sea & Tenby golf club

- Garden & patio for children to play & BBQ's to be eaten

Good location could do with some updating

  • 3 of 5

The house is in a lovely spot with fabulous views in all weathers. It feels a little like it hasn't been updated in a while and that there could be more attention paid to detail in the general upkeep of the property. For example there were broken floor tiles in the upstairs bathroom and mouldy sealant in both the shower and around the kitchen sink. The floors hadn't been cleaned properly since the last visitors which left you with a bit of a grubby feeling. It's a shame because the space in the house is great light and airy and worked well for us with my toddler and my parents. Just a few extra touches and would be 4/5.

Third visit and We will be back

  • 5 of 5

Its our third visit to this wonderful holiday house. We can't recommend this beautiful place enough. As soon as your case is through the door you feel instantly at home. The view is breath taking and the house is well equipped to prepare and hold family meals sat watching the bay. We will be back again.

lovely house with great views

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this great house just outside tenby. Previous years we have stayed in tenby itself in a cottage which my family love for its location and general outlay of the house. Staying at this house has changed everyone's mind. It is well located for traveling around the coast, walking or driving plus the train station is a 5 mins walk away. The views from the house are amazing ! We sat on the balcony one evening to look at the stars, we even saw some shooting stars.

Lovely house in a beautiful location - stunning views and comfortable accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property in September 2016 having not visited the area before. Ahead of our stay we got a very informative email from Michael with all the details of how to get there, how to get in, how to use the various appliances and his contact number as well as the changeover company details. The property itself is very nicely done with good size living space and bedrooms tastefully decorated. -The views from the property are stunning and the house is in a good position away from the busy streets of Tenby but an easy train ride in (5 mins to the train station and a 3 min train ride itself!) or a nice 45 minute walk along the coastal path. We had two small children and so the toys and kids room at the property were perfect! Michael was a great host even to the point that he helpfully sorted out the sending back of my dress that I had left at the property. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay to visit Tenby.

Fantastic sea views, lovely location!

  • 4 of 5

Great beaches nearby and we found The locals were very friendly & helpful. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 1 child in the main house. We had a welcome hamper on arrival and champagne was left for us for our anniversary. Our daughter (aged 2.5) loved the toys in the cupboard under the stairs. The sound system in the kitchen was a nice luxury as was the sound system in the lounge, especially when watching a film! Lots of space, kids bedroom was great with lots of books for bedtime! The owner sent very detailed and helpful e-mails with youtube videos on how to use some of the facilities. The shed was well stocked with beach equipment and the fact that beach towels were provided was also a bonus. Thanks for a lovely holiday!

Stunning house with amazing views in a lovely quiet village. Really close to Tenby and other amenities. The views from the house are outstanding and the house itself is fantastic, very well equipped with everything you need. We had a fantastic stay here with our two young children, lots for them to do. Can't recommend this place highly enough, we will definitely be back. Louise
