The Perfect New Year Getaway

  • 5 of 5

For anyone that wants a cosy few days away in West Wales this is the ideal property to match. The house was accommodating for our every need, with 4 adults the house it was very comfortable - Claudia was even kind enough to leave a complimentary bottle of Prosecco in the fridge upon our arrival so we could start the New Year celebrations in stylel! A two minute walk to the local pub and a 10 minute drive into Tenby the location was perfect. Needless to say the house was good enough that we didn't even make it to the games room and pool situated on site! We will definitely be coming back again!

Wonderful property and very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Great house, lovely location and we loved how the kitchen was fully equipped along with the DVDs, toys and books. Really easy to get to Tenby and we preferred to stay outside the town in this village, local shop was just what you needed and the local pub the old parsonage was amazing. Perfect trip.

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Grooms Cottage for a week in August with our 2 children, aged 5 and 3. We all had a fantastic holiday.

We love Tenby and the surrounding area but we didn't know what to expect from the accommodation and the area around it.

What a pleasant surprise. Grooms Cottage and The Ivy Tower Holiday village provided the perfect getaway for our family. The cottage contained everything we could possibly need and more, and our young children were delighted with the DVDs and toys which they were not expecting to find.

The site is great. It was so nice to have so many facilities to hand, without it being crowded with people. There are only about 19 cottages on site so the place feels really peaceful. Worlds apart from the caravan sites and Center Parcs that we normally stay at. Our children are still talking now about the playground on holiday that they had almost entirely to themselves.

There is so much to do nearby too. I loved the cafe at the little garden centre across the road and there are some nearby family-friendly pubs in the village of St Florence. Other popular attractions to entertain the kids are just 5 mins up the road by car.

In my opinion, this holiday was great value for money and I was impressed by the wealth of information sent to us by Claudia the owner when she confirmed our booking. It really helped us to get an idea of what to pack and what to expect when we got there. Grooms Cottage will be our first choice of accommodation now whenever we visit Tenby.

We were so sad to leave at the end of our stay but look forward to returning soon! I would highly recommend a holiday at Grooms cottage to anyone. It's suitable for people of any age. It's lovely for families who want the facilities without the crowds of people and peaceful enough for people without children to enjoy their stay too.

Bank Holiday Long Weekend.....

  • 5 of 5

.....what a brilliant cottage to rent, even without the indoor pool, tennis court, mini golf etc it would have been perfect, felt like home as soon as we arrived, my three girls all loved it, everything you need is there and Claudia who I dealt with to arrange it couldn't have been more helpful or hesitation to say I 100% recommend this cottage to anyone.
