Holdiay Home with a difference

Tenby Lifeboat Station

Tenby was granted a new lifeboat station some time ago, this was constructed right next to the old one which was first established in 1852 and is a Grade II listed building so could not be demolished. As luck would have it a lucrative businessman and his Wife from Cardiff bought the old lifeboat station which would otherwise have gotten into a state of disrepair and crumbled into the sea. They decided to create a swanky, rather unique holiday home with views like no other & their very own slipway to house their speedboat. The regeneration of the lifeboat station was showcased on the Channel 4 television programme 'Grand Designs'. They followed the project step by step as the delapidated building was rescued and transformed into a great living space. You can read more about it here.
