The Tenby flat…

The first property is a three-bedroom flat in a seafront development in Tenby, Pembrokeshire.
Pembrokeshire has become a popular destination this year among holidaymakers, as they shun traditionally more crowded streets in Cornwall amid the pandemic.
The flat is on the outskirts of the harbour town of Tenby, a resort in south west Wales. It boasts sea views of sandy stretches of South Beach and Caldey Island.
It is on the market via estate agents Birt & Co with an asking price of £695,000. The bumper price tag reflects its size, being in what is described as an ‘exclusive development’ and seafront location.
North London estate agent Jeremy Leaf said: ‘We are hearing that Pembrokeshire is one of the favoured destinations for Londoners looking to move out of the capital for good, or as a destination for a second home to complement city living.
‘After living in such a built-up environment, views of the open sea could not be more different and are certainly up there on the wish list for aspirational Londoners.’
