St Lawrence Country House, Tenby
A luxury Bed and Breakfast that thinks it is a Hotel
An Award-Winning, 4 star licensed guest house situated 1.5 miles outside the historic walled town of Tenby in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales – a bustling town with wonderful beaches.
Welcome to our spacious home set within a beautiful nineteen-acre estate. With 5 en-suite guest bedrooms, the house is south facing and enjoys spectacular views over the SSSI countryside of the Ritec Valley to the sea, Caldey Island and its beautiful beaches, and beyond.
We are close enough to Tenby for you to be able to take full advantage of all its amenities, yet far enough away for you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity required for an undisturbed and refreshing night’s sleep.
Sit under the Hornbeam on the lawn and enjoy the view of the beach on Caldey Island.
There are nineteen acres of pasture, woodland and garden that offer the peace and relaxation that many guests seek. The grounds around the house have many seated areas to relax and enjoy the lovely views over the Ritec Valley to the sea and Caldey Island. Being south facing we catch the sun all day long.
Our Old English rose garden, filled with award-winning David Austin Roses, will revitalise your senses with its beauty and fabulous perfumes.
Visit our newly planted orchards. We have thirty-three varieties of apple and also grow pears, plums, cherries, quince and crab apples. Our raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants, strawberries and gooseberries, when in season, will make your breakfasts memorable … not to mention our home-grown tomatoes from the two greenhouses.
We aim to encourage the wild flowers and natural flora and fauna to attract pollinating insects and birds and to help our ailing bee population. The grounds are ideal for dedicated bird watchers. We counted 36 species during two weeks in January 2013!
Feel free to walk, sit and explore our grounds including the ancient Gumfreston Church which nestles within our woodland. The new part of the church is 12th Century , however, the western porch and surrounds indicate early Christian/Celtic remains. Three wells lie in the church yard, two of them chalybeate, known for their healing properties and which in former times attracted pilgrims. Latterly they have prompted a revival of well dressing.
If you like peace and tranquility, want a luxury bed and breakfast which thinks it is a hotel, and dream of the feeling of being home from home, St lawrence is just the place for you.
St Lawrence House was re-named in dedication to Gumfreston Church whose patron is Saint Lawrence.
