Booked this cottage for a summer seaside break for myself, my daughter and her partner and their two children. The cottage was converted from a pub (Crown Inn) a couple of years ago but nothing with the house layout or appearance indicates that. The cottage is just the front of the building with attached apartments to the rear but the construction is sound as we heard nothing from our neighbours during the stay.
The interior is clean and light throughout with nice and adequate furnishings. The beach is only a short 10 minute walk away and that in itself is a nice quiet sandy beach. For those requiring more beach facilities a short 20 minute easy stroll along the beach will bring you to Tenby a more equipped beach resort.
The cottage has a downstairs toilet, a family bathroom upstairs and an en suite shower room to the master bedroom. I did personally find the en suite very narrow and had to step out to give myself sufficient room to dry off.
There is ample parking with space for two cars in front of the cottage and a reserved space in a parking area to the rear.
Penally itself is a quiet little village but is well served with a pub just across the road from the cottage and a village shop stocking everything you will need just down the road. It is also on a fairly regular bus route so you can explore further afield without worrying about finding parking when you get there. The pub (Cross Inn) is friendly with a decent choice of pub food but booking is essential to guarantee a table (see my separate review for more details).
The cottage balcony is very small and can only accommodate the small table and two chairs provided. Also the sea view promised in the web site no longer exists due to a new build alongside which is still to be finished. Most of the disruptive work is complete however so this was not too big an issue for us.
For thos visiting this area I would recommend Dinosaur Park if you have children under 5 and Folly farm for the whole farm (again see my separate reviews for more details on these attractions)

“A really handy cottage”

Crown Cottage appears to have been commissioned at the beginning of 2012 and is newly built; it is backed by, and physically attached to, holiday apartments to the rear of the building (which face the coast) and so the cottage only fronts the village street. It has no garden, as such, but a walled patio opens from the kitchen.We required a holiday rental with a non-shared bathroom/ toilet facilities. The main bedroom has en-suite facilities which are rather small but adequate, whilst the other two bedrooms share a bathroom at the end of the landing.There is also a toilet downstairs.All necessary when a large family is in residence! The kitchen is spacious and well appointed, with dish washer, fan oven, fridge &c. The sitting room is of medium size but again, well appointed. The standard of cleanliness was very good and one would be hard pressed to find much to criticize with this property - other than the absence of a 'welcome pack' to tell you how everything works. However, information sheets were available as to such things as emergency services, local doctors, dentists and suchlike. The absence of wifi was rather disappointing, a feature usually to be found nowadays at many such establishments. Access to the internet always helps, amongst other things, to plan where to go and what to see in a new locality. Parking is in a private area to the rear. Penally village only has a small general store but is handy for general bits and bobs, such as food, milk, newspapers &c. Tenby is a little over a mile walking distance from the cottage, either along the beach or by footpath which closely follows the local (and still operational) railway line. There is also a pub, "the Cross", which serves food (although we did not sample this) opposite and seemingly a fairly good bus service through the village.The railway station is also close at hand.
