The Ultimate Tenby Hideaway

Wanting to explore Pembrokeshire? Get yourself over to FBM …thank me later.

Back in November myself and A had our annual winter trip to Tenby. We usually stay in the Premier Inn because it’s cheap and cheerful. HOWEVER, me being the small business loving person I am, when I seen a fabulous little Instagram post by FBM holidays about The Lexden Garden Flat, I fell in love.

When I searched the FBM website I thought to myself, there is no way this will be available and if it is, it will be too expensive for a pre-Christmas break…

Oh how I was wrong. Available and absolutely bargacious! In fact cheaper than our usual stay in the Premier Inn. So of course we quickly booked online, easy peasy.

The Lexden Garden Flat

On arrival we didn’t know what to expect, as the Flat is actually a basement apartment. I was a bit concerned about it being cold and there being no windows. Again wrong!

When I hear A shouting “Oh My”, I know I had done well. See for yourself…

The whole place was decorated perfectly, the detail was amazing. I even fell in love with the door handle…and yes I did take a picture of these ↓ an idea that I have now robbed for our first home.

When we arrived, we were greeted by a very much needed (after a 4 hour drive) bottle of red and a lovely little post card from the owners John and Helen, welcoming us to their property.

This property is the perfect base camp for a good few nights in Tenby. The flat sleeps 2 and a well behaved pooch. The Lexden Garden Flat is located right in the heart of the town, with plenty of pubs and eateries within walking distance. I would highly recommend dining in The Lighthouse Kitchen, having a bev, snack and game in The Sandbar and Tap and doing a mini pub crawl in the Normandy, the Hope and Anchor, the Buccaneer and the Tenby House.

I am sure you will all be thrilled to know, there is Wifi available so you can update your Insta with some fab photos. Please do tag me in them @saucyanchor, I would love to see them…even if i do get sightly jealous.

Of course, as well as eating out you also have the option to eat in. The kitchen is fully kitted with glassware, plates and cutlery. Although, I must highlight that other than tea bags and sugar, you will need to take your own food and drink, including milk for your morning brew. We made use of this beautiful Santorini’esc kitchen on the first night. We had some delicious pizzas that we pre bought from Aldi.

Of course the question on everyones lips, is the bed comfy? Honest answer. Hell yes! And I love the fact that pretty much everything is John Lewis.

The whole process of booking with FBM is easy peasy lemon squeezy. You can browse through their many properties on the website and book your holiday online. I must tell you to follow their Instagram account to see the latest news, properties and any promotions they run. I must warn though, you will want to book a little trip every time you see a post.

The staff our lovely and the office is based literally 30 steps away from the Lexden Garden Flat, so if you have any issues or would like to bob in to say hi, you won’t have to go far. Speaking of not going too far, this flat has private access to the beach from the back door! Talk about a beach break. Why would you even think about going to the caribbean when you have the beaches of Tenby?

If I have twisted your arm to get yourself to Tenby this year, there is still loads of availability for the whole year for this property, although peak dates in the summer do tend to go pretty quickly. Please please please give this beautiful place a go and I promise you won’t be disappointed. There is also a special discount available at the moment, which means you have to at least head over to the FBM website to have a look.


Happy holidays and remember the beach rule…


With Love,
