Sleeps 2

The Mushroom House, Tenby

Couples seeking a coastal hideaway for a long romantic holiday make their way to The Mushroom House, a fabulous ground-floor apartment in the walled seaside town of Tenby, Pembrokeshire.

This well-furnished romantic holiday home for couples sits on the site of Colonel Fothergill’s Mushroom House and within the walled gardens of the former Zion House. It has a light and airy charm, allowing couples to relax and unwind just minutes from Tenby’s award-winning beaches.

The open-plan living space in this West Wales holiday cottage includes a fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a TV with Freeview. The child-friendly cottage also boasts a front-decked area with garden furniture, perfect for enjoying a quiet dinner in the crisp seaside air.

Long ago, Tenby guarded the Welsh shoreline against invaders, and the ruins of Tenby Castle and the ancient town walls now serve as favourite tourist attractions, as do Caldey Island, accessible by a brief boat trip, Oakwood Theme Park, and the mesmerising Dinosaur Experience.

Tenby is majestically positioned on the “Welsh Riviera” and part of the stunning 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The nearby resorts of Saundersfoot and Manobier are just short drives away, whilst golfers can play a quick round at the nearby Tenby or Trefloyne courses.

Please use the Visit Website buttons for further information to enquire or book The Mushroom House. When enquiring, please tell us you found this Tenby holiday apartment in Pembrokeshire on the My Favourite Holiday Cottages website. Thank you.




A lovely place to stay, in a lovely community. Excellent.

Miss Trimble

This south facing apartment is very light, comfortable and roomy for two. There is ample parking space, which otherwise can be difficult in this old part of town. The owner was extremely helpful. The location is only a minute or two's walk from beautiful beaches, from wonderful coastal scenery and from the very centre of the lovely old town of Tenby, which has some unique shops and great pubs and restaurants; including one of the best in Wales for fish and chips.

Mr Jordan

The overall look of the accommodation was very good. Tenby is a very nice place to visit.

Mr Welch

Just a five minute walk and you're in the old walled town with all its hustle and bustle and atmosphere.

Mrs Holmes

A perfect stay thanks to a clean and spacious apartment with the benefit of parking. Superb location, close to the beach and town centre. Good communication with the owner who was friendly and helpful.

Mrs Davies

Comfortable surroundings in a quiet area for easy access to town and beaches.

Mrs Wainwright

We were in an excellent location for getting around the area and really couldn't fault anything! We thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing holiday. The accommodation was very comfortable.

Mrs Pratt

Great to have a 3 night stay and not one week hire as some other properties. Will certainly book again for another mini break out of season.

Mrs Griffin

A lovely short break and very good weather for December. Very impressed with the accommodation, would definitely stay here again.

Mrs Farley

The apartment was warm, bright and contemporary. It was well equipped and the real bonus was being so close to Tenby centre and the sea, but still being in a quiet residential area. The surroundings were quiet and pleasant. It was useful being able to park in a private secluded parking area right outside the apartment. Overall we were very happy and would stay there again.

Mrs Sheppard

The property was in an excellent position, being near the town, beach and all facilities. It was comfortable, cosy and quiet. The general cleanliness and facilities were excellent. Great value for money. We'll be back!

Very comfortable and modern accommodation

The owner of the accommodation was very helpfull. He came to see us just after we arrived to make sure everything was OK. The flat was very modern and clean and had everything that you needed. Only five minutes walk from North Beach. Tenby is a lovely town with beautiful beaches. Be warned, most of the pubs only serve food up to 18:00hours so you need to find somewhere that opens late (very few). The cafe on the corner of North Beach is very good and late. We would seriously think of visiting Tenby again.

The key was provided for us by the owner after an en-route phone call. The flat was excellent and clean and the facilities were comprehensive. Its location was central although without views. Parking was good and adjacent. In short we had an excellent week's holiday, even the weather was good.

we stayed here for one week and was allowed to take our two year old grandson for two nights. It was great to be able to park the car and not have to use it whilst there. you could want for anything in the kitchen everything was there. Apart from the weather we had a great week and would love to go back with our other grandson next year. no hesitation.

Modern,light and airy appartment in an excellent location

Tastefully decorated and well-appointed with modern furnishings. Location was excellent in a quiet sunny courtyard within short walking distance of town centre. We found the many tourist leaflets and information provided in the appartment very useful indeed and the owner was friendly and willing to offer advice & help to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Best thing - location. Worst thing - lack of many Sky TV channels!

hols with kids

we stayed in the mushroom house (lower apt), very nice, modern ,with everything that we needed and we really enjoyed tenby and the surrounding places.if i have to find fault it is that the noise from the upstairs apt is a bit too much at times especially if like us you find there are young children up there.

Home from home

the appartment had all that was necessary for our stay,even to the extra touches,like liquid soap,towels,tea towels + washing sponge. it was nice to see that they also recycled,and had the necessary bins. The only small downside, was the settee could do with a little attention to make it a little more comfy.. Lovely off the road small complex,but near to where we wanted to go.


Clean but needs a few updates

The Mushroom house was a ground floor apartment, it was clean but needs a few things to make it a little better, the settee was uncomfy it sank when u sat on it, and they need to put cleaning products in the place and a guest book, and a welcome tray, the holiday was fab as the sun shone nearly all week. Also the tennants in the upstairs apt were so noisy running around and shouting at 2am in the morning, so neither of us slept till we got home.


Lovely stay

Lovely appartment had every thing we needed lovely location short walk into Tenby parking outside nice area to sit outside bonus we had nice weather well equiped kitchen light and airy appartment had lovely week



This is ideal for couples who want to have a relaxing time in a beautiful place. Immaculate house that feels like home and a great location.


We liked the location as it was close to the beach and town, yet was very private and quiet. The apartment was great, very well designed, even though it was just for two it was really spacious and plenty of room for all our stuff. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Overall, we were very impressed and would definitely recommend it.
