Elm Grove

Tenby

Elm Grove is a grand house dating from the 1840s, and yet gloriously unstuffy. There’s a sense of tradition and continuity here – in the same family for 60 years, and they’ve been a long-standing member of our sister Great Little Places collection.

It’s rich in period detail, including paneled doorways and floors fashioned from old ships’ timbers, sparkling chandeliers, marble fireplaces, big picture windows and high ceilings with exquisite mouldings. Now offering a uniquely luxurious exclusive-use option, there’s nothing dated about the accommodation or the welcome. The latest generation, Jane and Alan Rees-Baynes, now personally welcome guests. The huge bedrooms, with a mix of contemporary and period antique furnishings, lack nothing in modern amenities and you’ll see paintings by Alan, a critically acclaimed artist, in some. Unlike many of our Rare Hideaways, this is not ‘self-catering’ in the traditional sense. It’s a relaxed affair here, you won’t need to lift a finger, there’s no guests access to the kitchen so no washing up to worry about! Feedback often singles out the quality of the food for great praise: Elm Grove is noted for its use of achingly fresh, locally produced ingredients, tasty, traditional dishes and fortifying award-winning breakfasts. The approach to the house hints at its imposing history, standing in a tranquil spot at the end of a long, tree-lined drive, and hugged by 20 acres of gorgeous grounds and gardens, it feels a million miles away from the bustling medieval streets and Blue Flag beaches of Tenby, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park’s prime resort, just three miles away.
