Penally Abbey

Tenby, Pembrokeshire

A gorgeous country-house hotel with big sea views - sparkling interiors, delicious food and a relaxed feel wait within


11 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


This beautifully refurbished country-house hotel sits high on the hill with long views over Carmarthen Bay. Outside, there’s a small courtyard, then five acres of lawns and woodland, where bluebells run riot in spring. Inside, chic interiors come with cool colours, painted panelling, parquet flooring and the odd Doric column. There’s an elegant bar in deep charcoal with fine art on the walls, then a big drawing room with an open fire and huge sea views. Big windows in the main house flood the rooms with light, while doors in the sunroom open onto a gravelled terrace, where you can read the papers, dig into afternoon tea, or fall asleep in the sun. Bedrooms have a stunning new look: off-white walls, beautiful beds, crisp white linen, elegant fabrics. Big rooms in the main house have vast windows to frame the view, all have sublime white marble bathrooms. You eat in style in the restaurant – period colours, grand chandelier – perhaps steamed clams with lemon and ginger, chicken with chestnuts and a pear tarte tatin, a dark chocolate tort with pistachio ice cream. There’s fine coastal walking, too.

Stayed here for one night last week on our way back to the ferry in Pembroke. Absolutely loved this hotel, though our stay was short it was very comfortable, we were in the coach house and the bed was super comfortable and the bath really long and great for a good soak. Dinner was delicious, breakfast let them down a little bit as I felt the granola/museli should have been homemade and maybe some nice breads instead of just toast or pastries as the bread at dinner was delicious, very small picky things but on the whole would highly recommend.
