Property Summary

A fabulous detached residence dating back to circa 1920. Reportedly, Clifton Cottages design has major influences from the architect John Coates Carter; he maintained a style steeped in the traditions of the Arts and Crafts movement. Carter created many impressive buildings such as the Monastery on Caldey Island and St Lukes Church in Abercarn. Boasting superb sea and coastal views, Clifton Cottage occupies a generous size plot with lawns to 3 sides, ample parking with detached garage plus workshop/store room. A super coastal location only approximately 500 m to Tenby’s South sands.

The Property
Clifton Cottage in its style, is characterised by many features highlighting the Arts & Crafts movement. Architect John Coates Carter was a recognised exponent of the Arts & Crafts movement – he used local materials and identifiable vernacular motifs wherever possible – many apparent at Clifton Cottage. A deceptively spacious property, affording 3-4 bedrooms, 3 Reception rooms & 3 bathrooms. The property could be utilised to offer separate accommodation over 2 wings – One accessed for the South/West entrance and one via the North/East entrance.

The property would appeal to the most discerning purchaser – viewing comes highly recommended.

Vendor Interview
Clifton Cottage is located in the heart of the tranquil village of Penally. Our garden is flat and on three sides of the property so there is always sunshine – perfect for entertaining and outdoor games. A short walk from the property is the South Beach – the gateway to over 200 miles of Pembrokeshire Coast Paths. The house itself is late Arts & Crafts . It has evolved with our family and business needs, but we have made a conscious effort to keep the unique character of the house. We have retained original features and all new work has been completed sympathetically. This is a beautiful summer house with plenty of light and space. Winters are warm and cosy in front of the wood burning stoves.

We fell in love with Clifton Cottage at first sight – I believe you will too. We have enjoyed many happy years here. It’s a special and unique place. A wonderful home and hub for our family, Clifton Cottage has given us so many good memories of living in such a unique property in the heart of Penally village.
