About Lower Deck

A fabulously sought after apartment, nestling on Tenby's picture postcard harbour. Lower Deck is a comfortable hideaway whatever the weather, with the atmosphere as its name suggests of a cosy, cabin boat bobbing in the bay and the loveliest sea views.

4 steps take you down to a small, pretty, enclosed paved terrace on the harbour side, this leads straight into the dual aspect open-plan living space with comfortable lounge and bespoke, handmade, solid wood fitted kitchen/diner. Renovated throughout to a high standard with specially hand crafted, bespoke furnishings it reflects the colours of the sea and beach with light wood paneling, laminate floors and wooden shutters giving it a French seaside theme, a door opens to a small terrace, another wonderful spot to sit and admire the view, when the tide is in, it really feels like you are in a boat.

The ground floor room with day bed and ensuite shower room leads through to the stairs which take you to the romantic double bedroom on the first floor, both offer sea views and quality ensuite facilities.

The ceaseless bustle of harbour life captivates onlookers and quayside dwellers alike. The experience of a fresh fish or crab supper is not to be missed; or why not try one of the many local restaurants or pubs for something more exotic, all situated on your doorstep, while there are a choice of 4 glorious sandy beaches surrounding Tenby all within walking distance.

Enjoy a fishing trip or take a boat ride to Caldey Island, the atmosphere is unique as it is home to Cistercian Monks.

Our second stay here. Lovely cottage. We found it clean and tidy on arrival. Thank you for the wine! Beach is amazing as usual, a special place. Love it here.

Colin & Fiona

Fab cottage, thanks!

Sally Frost

ower Deck is such a lovely property located right in the harbour. The apartment is cosy on space but it's perfect for 2 or 3 people and a dog. Furnished in a nautical theme and to a very high standard, it has a back terrace that you fish from (when the tide is in), plus a sun-trap front terrace with nice garden furniture. This was our second time at Lower Deck and we were lucky to have fab weather so used the front terrace quite a lot! Access to beach is up the hill and turn left or from the property you can take some steep steps down to beach when the tide is out. Tenby centre is 2 mins walk up the hill where there are lots of cafes and restaurants. Our favourite was The Fat Seagull where we enjoyed hearty brunch and also dined there for dinner on two occasions. We love Tenby and can't wait to visit again.


The property is well positioned, comfortable and cosy.

I spent a lovely 50th birthday ay Lower Deck cottage with my husband, mother-in-law and Molly our dog, couldn't ask for a better surprise! We all loved the cottage, the attention to detail was excellent and the nautical theme added and extra WOW to the experience. The downstairs bedroom and wet room were ideal for my 80 something mother-in-law, all the beds were so comfortable as were the sofas. We've been coming to Tenby for many years and agree this was one of tour best experiences!We will definitely be back again. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs Harper

We spent four nights at Lower Deck after a busy and hectic Christmas! It was just what we wanted, cosy cottage, near the sea and town. We must say, we stay in a lot of cottages in Wales/England and it has to be said Lower Deck is the most cosy, stylish cottage we have stayed in so far. Even though it's a small cottage, it's been cleverly designed and the spaces are well utilised, the wet room is lovely. Thanks for a lovely stay. We will deffinetley recommend to friends and family. P.S Sam the dog loved the walks on the beach!

Mark and Family

Great week, weather amazing! We thought lower deck was very well designed. A great deal of thought and care has gone into creating a relaxed atmosphere.

Charlotte, Dave and Gareth Whitcombe

We have had a fantastic week here. Beautifully decorated throughout. Comfortable setee and beds. Showers Lovely. The views were amazing and so were the local walks. Thank you for the bottle of wine on our welcome - really appreciated! Thanks for a great break.


We have had such a relaxing chilled out time. Food at The Moorings was sensational. We have been so lucky with the weather. If you have a dog, The Buccaneer is a great place to have great food and sit outside in a covered and warm place. Carew Castle is a good place to go. This has been our best stay with our Labrador Marley.

The Hurst Family

We thought Lower Deck was lovely when we stayed in October, but now it is absolutely fantastic! We loved everything about it. The decor is fine, the furniture is fine, the bed is so comfortable, please do not change anything! We love the outside furniture at both the front and the back of the property, you can now follow the sun! Thank you for lowering the wall at the back, it improves the view 100%. Our stay here is totally positive we have nothing negative to say. Well done to whoever designed and decorated Lower Deck you have done a really good job! We love Tenby so much and have been coming here for 34 years! We're hoping we can make Lower Deck our home from home. See you soon!

The Barton Family

Wow! What a transformation from the old Lower Deck. Love the Decor and nautical theme throughout. Everything is of a very high quality. We will be back again. Go to Lawrenny Quay - lovely setting and superb cafe.

The Poundford Family

Lovely cottage, perfect in every way. Superb holiday. Thank you.

What a fantastic place to stay and lovely decor. Caldey Island is a place to visit, Tenby North Beach is lovely and great restaurant there. Highly recommended place to stay.

The Bradley Party

Our dog Jessica had a wonderful time, sitting outside, at the front enjoying a glass of wine, many passers-by commented that it was the best spot in Tenby. I agree. Perfect 'pad'. Would love to return in the near future. Also try and visit Manorbier.
