Welcome to tranquility: We would love to welcome you to our Swedish designed holiday home; our guests usually comment on its tranquility & many have described it as a retreat.They enjoy sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down, enjoying a glass of our complimentary Cava.On clear nights the stars will appear as there is little light pollution.

As a guest you are welcome to use the very friendly Golf club bar or the restaurant which specialises in locally sourced , seasonal, organic meals. Sunday lunch especially recommended. In the evening we like nothing better than walking the golf course or in the woodland.

A round of golf for guests is £20 & you can also have a 10% discount on lessons from Oliver, the golf professional.

Our guests have been kind enough to compliment us on our holiday home ( see their comments ). Our place is professionally cleaned after every letting.

Our perfect holiday home for you to enjoy: This is a very unusual high quality holiday home in stunning surroundings. We searched all over Wales before finding what to us is the perfect second home. Lynn insisted I buy it as soon as she stepped through the door, despite the fact it was still under construction. We are so glad we bought it & so it seems are all our satisfied guests.

Ours is certainly not a typical holiday let as we have put our love into it & our guests appreciate our efforts.

Why not join the experience.

Exploring the area: We have known Tenby all our lives but since having our holiday home we are always surprised by new places we never knew about. After 1 1/2 years we are still exploring.

Tenby has stunning safe, sandy, blue flag beaches, plenty of pubs, restaurants, shops & charm. For excellent coffee with a fantastic view try Cafe Vista or go upmarket for that special occasion at Plantagenate Restaurant.

Nearby Skrinkle Haven offers walks on the Pembrokeshire Coastal path which reward with breathtaking clifftop scenery.

The next beach along is Manorbier where you can see surfers & stone age burial stones on the headland.

Skomer island has an abundance of birds.

If you want to conquer a castle then try Manorbier, Pembroke,Haverfordwest or many others.

Solva is a quaint fishing village on the way to St Davids Cathedral which is a day out on its own.

There is so much to see & do in Pembrokeshire.

About Trafford & Lynn Davies

We live about 50 miles away at the western end of the M4.

Lynn is a retires teacher with a love of art and interior design. I am a retired tax inspector and I just enjoy the open road on my motorcycle.

We were both raised in Carmarthenshire, but have lived and worked in Plymouth, London and Northhants before returning to live in our home county. Both our children have flown the nest.

Our dream was to retire to Provence, but when the time came practicalities dictated otherwise.

Trafford & Lynn Davies purchased this house in 2009

Why Trafford & Lynn Davies chose Tenby

We looked at countless properties on the internet before coming to see Cysgod y Coed. It had yet to be fitted out but as soon as Lynn walked through the door she knew this was the one for us.

Lynn has put her interior design skills to work and we have furnished it as a luxury home for ourselves and our guests to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

On our first visit we were very impressed with the long drive from the entrance to the Manor House and then we saw our place nestling amongst the trees.

Only a mile and a half from Tenby but a hidden gem in the grounds of a parkland golf course.

It is such a friendly, quiet place to relax and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lynn and I are quite proud of our guest reviews.

Lovely weekend break!

Lovely weekend away with the girls! The cabin is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very clean. Large lounge area upstairs and balcony with enough space for everyone. A home away from home.

Lovely home with everything you need in a tranquil setting in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to come back to each day and I enjoyed many a morning and evening sat on the balcony. Having two bedrooms with 4 single beds It was ideal for our family of 4 teenage boys and the master bedroom with ensuite was great for me and my wife. The living room was large, warm and naturally lit with the roof window and many windows to the front of the property and was very inviting in the evening with all the various lighting options. Having the washer and separate dryer was incredibly useful for us as we had limited space in the car to bring lots of clothes. Overall we enjoyed our time in the house and recommend it to others.

5***** stay

  • 5 of 5

We came here to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday and had a wonderful stay. So so comfortable and every need catered for. Very comfortable beds and amazing power showers. This holiday accommodation excels in every way and in addition to the lovely style of this home, all the extra little homely details make this a very special place to stay. We would very much like to come back and stay in the future. Thank you Trafford & Lynn

Beautiful accommodation in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is wonderfully comfortable, very well equipped and tastefully furnished.

The forest setting is beautiful, and it’s a lovely bonus to be so close to a very pleasant hotel.

The attentive owners ensured that we were very happy with arrangements, and they’ve provided truly excellent holiday accommodation.

First Class

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful lodge with everything you need plus more. So warm and welcoming that we didn't want to leave. Lovely and quiet and a great location. Highly recommended and would definitely like a return visit sometime.

Thank you so much for the welcoming bottle of fizz. It was my wife's 60th so it was a lovely thing to do. That's the difference between a good break and a fabulous break.

Set in the beautiful grounds of Trefloyne Manor & Golf Club. It is very secluded & nestles in ancient woodland. Conveniently only 1.5 miles away from the centre of the fortified town of Tenby. Known as the jewel in the crown of Pembrokeshire.

In Tenby you will discover a wealth of good restaurants such as Plantagenate, bars like the famous Coach & Horses, coffee bars such as Cafe Vista with views o the bay,safe sandy blue flag beaches & venture to Caldey Island with its historic monastery.

Pembrokeshire National Park is all around with its magical coastal path ( ideal for walkers & birdwatchers ). Many other attractions include castles, St David's Cathedral, theme parks such as Oakwood & Bluestone, hills & ancient monuments. Skomer Island is a bird sanctuary.

Fish for mackerel & bass from a boat.

One of the Pembrokeshire coastal paths runs behind our property.

Other Activities: coast steering, bird watching at Skomer

Golf: Your stay will be in a woodland area about 100 yards from 1st tee. Very well kept grounds in spectacular setting. For further information just Google Trefloyne Golf.

A round of golf for guests cost £20 & Oliver the golf pro will allow you a 10% reduction on lessons. The Course is beautifully maintained. ( see Oliver's website )

Naturally buggies can be hired.

Tenby has a links course which is about a mile away & there are several good courses in the area.

After your round relax with a drink on the front terrace looking out to Cysgod y Coed or the rear terrace overlooking the course. Alternatively stay in the very friendly bar & have a meal prepared by the chef from locally sourced organic ingredients.

If your partners do not play there is plenty to do locally.
