Beautiful fully stocked house in a fantastic location.Great weather all week bar the first day. Lots of walking , good eating and drinking in Tenby and in Lystep (Tavern and Waves restaurant) My family and I have been coming to this part of the world for 50 years as it is beautiful but this is the best holiday house so far. We will definately be coming back to the Glen.
Hopefully as the first people to rent The Glen the outlook looks good for the future!The weather was basically unbroken sunshine for 8 days broken by a few hours of sea mist -not a hardship! The house itself is truly a home from home, very comfortable for a family and big enough to be able to have some peace or if you have teachers as children who want to mark in peace! that is if the weather isnt so beautiful that you spend all day out of doors in the beautiful well tended garden, We have been to Tenby, Lystep. Penally every year for the past 18yrs and The Glen is certainly one of the best rentals! For good food the Lystep Tavern is good for an easy meal.The Coast in Saundersfoot is for a more expensive treat.Waves restaurant in Celtic Haven continues to be excellent and very convenient.Beaches and places to go -too many to mention but you will find them! Thank you
