We bought Whistler House because we literally fell in love with the sea and harbour views from the garden - it helped that there is a strong rumour that Henry Tudor escaped to the Continent if not from our house then possibly from the tunnels lying underneath the cliff on which we stand.

Tenby has recently won a National award for tourist destination (Silver Best UK Coastal Award 2014) and Whistler House overlooks the Blue Flag North Beach as well as the beautiful and still working harbour from which you can take fishing and tour trips.

The House

 

The house dates back to the 1850's and has just the most breath-taking views. Great for sunrises, sunsets and watching the daily activity on the North Beach and Harbour in between. Within minutes you can be on either North or Harbour beaches and jumping in at high tide.

Stunning views - real suntrap and a barbecue! 

What more could you ask for?

Tenby Harbour - now star of TV!

Since buying the property we have also learned that pre-pagers - the back of the house was used to launch the Maroons (flares) to call the crew when the Tenby Lifeboat was launched.

Beaches

 

The town has four great beaches - North Beach (which we overlook) dominated by Goscar Rock, Castle Beach with St Catherine's Island in a horseshoe bay, South Beach with it's huge expanse of golden sand and tiny Harbour Beach just by the sailing club. Lots to choose from and great for lazy summer days as well as long walks - possibly with a dog?

Overlooking the North Beach and the picturesque harbour the house is a short 2 minute walk onto any one of the three beautiful blue flag beaches of Tenby or a short 20 steps into the town itself. Tenby is a wonderful holiday destination and caters to all types: Family beach holidays, coastal walkers, surfers, Iron-Man athletes, mountain bikers. 

With six bedrooms and four bathrooms, Whistler House has been refurbished to cater well to family get-togethers, Christmas get-aways or multiple family holidays - there's space for all. It has wifi availability throughout as well as all the amenities expected from a house with a high specification. A brand new kitchen is aimed at being both flexible and capable of catering easily for up to 16 guests.

Out on the garden patio you can enjoy barbecues and large group meals or just sit back and watch sea and harbour life pass you by.
