Spend your days on the nearby North beach or there are a further 3 beaches to choose from all within walking distance. A trip to Caldey Island, the home of the Cistercian Monks to experience its unique restful atmosphere should not be missed or enjoy a fishing trip from the picturesque harbour.

'Thank you. We have had such a lovely time, three generations , grandmother - mother and aunt- daughter. The weather has been wonderful and we have been on boat trips and had breakfast every morning in the lovely garden. We have laughed, drunk cava, played cards, listened to the birds and danced. We have been to Manor Park and groomed the pygmy goats and fed the wallabies. Our toes have felt the grass, the sand and the sea and our hearts and souls have felt free'

Simon, Claire and Jessica

‘Thank you for a lovely holiday in a perfect cottage. We have had a lovely week relaxing and exploring Tenby and we have enjoyed eating out especially at The Coach and Horses and The Bay Tree. The cottage is in a perfect location and has everything you could possibly need. Thank you’ May/June 2019


'Thank you so much we have enjoyed our stay very much. The wine and welsh cakes were very much appreciated. We loved the garden and the thoughtfulness you showed in the wonderfully well stocked cottage. Thank you'

Margaret Hannett (18-25.05.19)

Thank You. We have had such a lovely time. The weather has been wonderful. We have been on boat trips and had breakfast every morning in the lovely garden.

Charlotte, Jason, Ruby + Amelia

We’re thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Swiss Cottage- Thank you so much for ensuring all the essentials and finishing touches were ready for our arrival too. We’ve felt really ‘at home’ here and have enjoyed lazy days reading and playing games with our girls- especially when the weather was unkind! I must mention how well we all have slept all week too – lovely comfy beds! This was our first family holiday to Tenby – in fact our first holiday to Wales!! I am sure we will be back again in the future- back to beautiful Tenby and back to charming Swiss Cottage!

Les and Heather

We have absolutely loved our time in your beautiful cottage, it really is a wonderful place. We appreciated the gifts of wine and welsh cakes on arrival and the cottage itself has everything that you could possibly need in order to be equipped to explore Tenby and its surrounding areas. We found Country Kitchen were fab for breakfast sandwiches if you want a bit of a break from cooking and the fat seagull cafe in town is brill for everything from ice creams to burgers! We will definitely be returning as our time here has resulted in us adoring the cottage, appreciating how truly awesome Tenby is and leaving more in love than ever before with each other. It really is a magical place!

Justin, Dawn, Daniel and Killian

We had a lovely stay in your cottage. So well equipped, everything we could need and more. The location is perfect, so close to the beach. We were lucky with the weather too. We will definitely return. The parking permit was really helpful too!

Carolyn and Dave

Thanks for the welcome bottle of wine and other items when we arrived, very kind and much appreciated. In spite of the weather we have had a lovely relaxing time in your nice homely cottage, which has everything and is so quiet. We feel lucky to have found this and would not hesitate to return in the future. Many thanks again.

Bex and Andy

We have had a great time staying in Swiss Cottage - we have stayed a few places in Tenby and this is by far the best! The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and we especially appreciated the garden for the sunshine! Thank you for the bottle of wine on arrival it was a welcome surprise after a long drive. We have had a memorable stay here and will definitely return here next time we visit Tenby.

The Beck Family

We had a fabulous time in Swiss Cottage. We loved sitting out in the garden in the sunshine. Loved Castle and South Beach the best. The Tai food in the Coach and Horses we would highly recommend. We think Tenby is a beautiful place and we hope to be back again in Swiss Cottage. Thank you for making our stay relaxing and special.

Jen, Mike and Thomas

An Absolute delight, Swiss Cottage is all and more than you could wish for! We were blown away by your generosity - finest red wine, tea and coffee, fresh towels and bedding, DVDs, books and kitchen stocked to satisfy the budding chef and when our little boy discovered the toy chest we were lost for words! There is something for everyone at Swiss Cottage (there was even a stair gate)! Well cared for and loved the house has amazing character and charm. We had a wonderful week here! Thank you so much.

Nicola and Noel

Many thanks for making our New Years Celebrations one to remember! Your cottage is very welcoming and the Christmas Dec's were a very nice touch. Thank you! Everything we needed we were able to find and as this is our first trip Tenby, we found all the information you left us very useful! Tenby is somewhere we hope to visit again in the future and we will definitely be recommending it to all our family and friends. Many thanks again, Happy New Year!

The McKay Party

Thank you for the festive hamper and for making the cottage so Christmassy! I've enjoyed my stay and hope to be back sometime! Happy New Year!

Linda and Robin

'Had a wonderful week at Swiss Cottage, helped by the lovely weather . Location of cottage is excellent for both the beach and town. We loved the little garden with all the birds and had many a pre-dinner drink there. We ate at the Moorings, Qube, Vista and Bay Tree- all were very good. Tenby looked stunning from every angle and we hope to come back sometime soon '

The Forshaw Family

'Thank you for a wonderful stay. We've had a lovely , relaxing week in Tenby. We spent most days at North Beach with the most amazing sunny weather we've had everyday. Would recommend the Island Cruise- seal safari and the trip on a lifeboat. Our 3yr old son enjoyed them both! The cottage is a great location and had everything we needed for our stay- the co-op at the end of the road was handy! We enjoyed eating at The Bay Tree and Joe's. Amanda, Julian and Oliver'

The Younger Family

'Thank you for a lovely stay. A homely and cosy cottage perfect for our family holiday. Having the outside space was a great bonus. Tenby itself is a pretty little town with beautiful sandy beaches- lucky enough to have to ourselves (almost) on some visits. Hope to be back next year ! Natalie, Martin, James and Edward'

Lesley and Jeremy

Couldn't ask for better. Lovely cottage in a beautiful town. Everything we wanted was there, from the little garden at the back to the lovely smell of the fireplace! Thank you for the wine - that disappeared! We found street parking OK, once the day trippers had departed around 5pm. We're coming back!

Andy, Lisa and Isaac

Had a lovely week, thanks for the little extras on arrival, much appreciated. The cottage is very well equipped and a pleasure to stay in, we'll definitely stay again if back in Tenby. Many Thanks, Andy, Lisa and Isaac.

Claire, Jason and Charlie

What a lovely week we've had in this fabulous cottage. Its so well equipped that we honestly can't think of any suggestions for improvement. Having a lively 3 year old we really wanted to find somewhere close to the beach but with outdoor space. Most accommodation seemed to be apartments so Swiss Cottage was a great find. We will definitely be back as we love both the cottage and Tenby. A perfect house in a perfect location. For those with younger children we highly recommend The Dinosaur Park Tenby. Often younger children are too small for the rides but at The Dinosaur Park Charlie was able to go on everything. He also loved the Dinosaur Safari and hasn't stopped talking about it since. Thank you, Claire, Jason and Charlie.

Karen and Dave

Wow! Thank you for the goodies you left for us, Merlot being our favourite red wine. We found your cottage quirky and cosy - although we never used the sitting room or put the TV on for whole week, bliss! You thought of everything, I even needed to use the sewing kit. Had a lovely time, don't want to go home, we will be back! (We found North Beach parking for £18 for the week very safe and worth the money). Many thanks, Karen and Dave.

The Brignull Family

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your cottage. With family living in Tenby we will definitely be returning. Thanks, Louise, Lee and Harry

Alice and Ryan

Lovely cottage in an ideal location. Everything was spotless on arrival and will be recommending this to family and friends. Thank you! Alice and Ryan.

John and Stella

Fantastic cottage, absolutely brilliant, just what we were hoping for and more. Great location, very cosy, comfy and well appointed. We loved being able to use the fireplace in the evenings. Had a great stay, will really miss it.

Debbie and James

We really like the cottage. Wouldn't really change anything. The bed is super comfy! We will stay again. Many thanks.

The Finney Family

Thank you for a fantastic 2 week stay! Beach, BBQ's, body boarding, fishing, crabbing, sailing, chocolate making (Wickedly Welsh is great for Chocolate lovers). The cottage is in a great location. Our kids have insisted that we re-book - and we agree! Thanks again, Alice, Darren, Ben and Helena.

The Mortimers

Thank you so much for the gifts on arrival, they were a lovely surprise! The cottage was lovely and perfect for what we needed. Our 2 girls absolutely loved it and want to come back for another holiday. Thank you again. "Thank you we loved the bunk bed and toys at Swiss Cottage, from Evie".

Trish and Tony

Had a wonderful time in an around Tenby. Cottage is a real home from home. Would love to come back if possible. Welcome pack very good, and much needed. Thank you for such a wonderful cottage to relax in.

Karen and Andrew

We have had a lovely stay in the cottage - brilliant location. Thanks for the welcome goodies. Weather could have been better but we made the most of it. Lovely coastal walks at Freshwater West and Angle - cafe with delicious cakes! The Bay Tree restaurant in town has delicious food and the Bay of Bengal another nice restaurant although you have to take your own alcohol. We would love to come back when there is lots more sunshine! P.S. Caldey Island is a must!

Natalie, Lee and Elliott

What a fantastic location! It has been wonderful to be able to leave the car behind and explore Tenby on foot. Such a lovely cottage and so well equipped, we couldn't ask for more. The amazing weather has just made our stay perfect, we never thought we'd come to Wales and not have packed enough pairs of shorts or use nearly all our sun cream! We only wish we could stay longer, if only to see the end of the Long Course Weekend - it looks great fun and the atmosphere in the town has certainly stepped up a notch!! Thank you for the stay in your beautiful cottage - we will definitely be back to Tenby - hopefully for longer next time!

Steve, Kim, Eve and Thomas

Great holiday cottage, it had everything we needed and more! Eve and Thomas (5+3) had great fun exploring the toy box and garden shed. Very convenient for North Beach and walking up into town, also useful to have the Co-op just at the bottom of the street! Rare to have a garden with a town cottage, so the peace and quiet was much appreciated. Will be re-booking for next year! Many thanks.

Mr and Mrs Shaw, and Alex and Samuel

Absolutely brilliant week, lovely weather and beautiful place to spend our holiday. The cottage is stunning, best cottage we've stayed in, love the open fire and the enclosed garden. Definitely re-booking for next year, children have had a fantastic time. Wish we didn't have to go home, many thanks - the cottage made our holiday perfect.

Graham and Carol

Having arrived on Thursday evening straight from the handy local train station just down the road to a most welcome warm and comfortable environment. Everything here was already and set up to go for a well deserved long weekend break. We found anything we needed and if it was not available here to hand, it would be on sale just a short five minute walk away. The cottage is beautifully decorated, it was particularly good to be safe inside together looking out at the winter weather, cuddled up together in front of natures TV - the real fire! The dining room table was replete with all and any information at hand regarding places of interest, places to go and details about the cottage itself. We had such a lovely time - we had used every room and its facilities. Having now just made ourselves and gotten used to being here. We just don't want to leave! But we will be taking our memories with us. Until we hope to return next time, two very satisfied customers!

Akhurst Family

Jo, Kevin, Jonathan, Abigail

We've had a lovely time here - such a spacious cottage a real suprise and with a garden too. We loved the rock pools at Manorbier and a great day out at Pembroke, as well as Tenby's lovely beaches. For food we would recommend 'The Moorings' and 'The blue ball' both good quality and welcoming to couples and families alike. Also great tea - room at Stackpole Quay, Well deserved after long walk!

Julia and Ed

What a lovely cottage, felt at home straight away. Had some sun, the cottage has been perfect. A big thanks!

Thank you swiss cottage for a lovely xmas! Many thanks for the welcome package, Much appreciated. The cottage is fantastic, very cosy - would really like to come back. Once again many thanks for an enjoyable few days.

The Fermer Family

We have loved our week here in Tenby! Swiss Cottage has proved to be the perfect house being so close to the beach and the town centre. The beaches are fab and as we were blessed with great weather we have spent a lot of time there - especially North Beach which is dog free in the Summer. We can recommend Cafe Vista for great Lattes and lovely views over the harbour. There was fireworks over the harbour on Sunday for Tenby's annual Summer Spectacular! Also loved our visit to Caldey Island, beautiful and peaceful and in the sunshine it is just about perfect! The beach is idyllic. Loved the cottage, spacious and comfy and we will definitely come back!

The Gwyther Family

Great family holiday - lovely homely cottage, our second time here! Recommend Tenby especially North Beach and the great shops, pubs and restaurants. Went to Saundersfoot, Barafundle, Stackpole Quay, Bosherston Lily Ponds, Freshwater East, Manor House Wildlife Park and Folly Farm - had a great time and the weather was kind! Thanks.

The Hart Family

Been to Tenby many times - lovely cottage with lots of character. Great to be so near to the beach - spent most of our time on North Beach but also enjoyed the rock pools at Manorbier. Spent a day at Heatherton and the children loved it! More choice of activities for children over 6 years. Visit to lifeboat station enjoyed by us all. Lots of cafes to enjoy and great fish and chips from Lower Frog Street. Enjoyable stay - thank you!

The Holmes Family

We've had a lovely rejuvenating time in gorgeous Tenby! Enjoyed visitng Tenby beaches, Castell Henllys with fantastic iron age round houses and real Celtic people! Very cosy cottage with a homely feel - thank you for the milk and wine.

Sansom family

Wow! What a wonderful cottage. We're having great fun and a first time experience with the open fire. This will always be a memorable experience in Swiss Cottage.

John, Steve, Richard and Charlotte

We had a great week - blessed with glorious weather but for one afternoon. It makes a difference after staying in awful accomodation last year, beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the world. We would strongley recommend Barafundle Bay and Stackp[ole Quay, gorgeous.

Peter + Sue

Thankyou ever so much for letting us stay in your beatiful house - it really has been wonderful. I am so envious of you design skills in 'kitting out' the place without losing some very nice personal touches. The bed is the best in the world!

Dawn + Crew!

We've had a really great time in Tenby and Swiss Cottage. Even the weather has been good to us. I said that I didn't walk anywhere, well I do now! The beaches are so clean here, I could see my feet as I paddled in the water! We're really sad to be going home.
