The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire, West Wales, is a beautiful and unique county surrounded by some of the finest coastline in Europe. A favourite location of artists, travellers, pilgrims and outdoor pursuits enthusiasts it contains one of the UK's 15 National Parks. Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is unique in Britain as the only National Park that is predominantly coastal it covers 240 square miles around the beautiful West Coast of Wales and boasts a wealth of wonderful places to explore and enjoy.
Its stunning coastline offers safe, sandy beaches ideal for families, as well as rugged cliffs and secluded rocky coves. It's a paradise for the wildlife enthusiast, internationally important for its rare habitats and species and offshore lie Pembrokeshire's unique islands, each with their own special character.
The area's fascinating past is ever-present in prehistoric tombs, Celtic crosses, Iron Age Hill Forts, Norman castles, medieval churches, Victorian forts and historic towns and villages.
Tenby is probably the prettiest seaside town in Wales. The original town called Dinbych y Pysgod in Welsh or "little town of fishes", was established by The Normans as a fortified town. Most of the old town walls remain, enclosing the medieval town behind them. The castle that defended Tenby was built on Castle Hill but only one small keep tower remains of that.
Tenby has 3 Blue Flag beaches. North Beach faces east and is nicely sheltered if the prevailing south westerly wind is blowing. Castle Beach faces south and also has high cliffs backing it, while South Beach stretches uninterrupted for a mile to Giltar Point and is perfect for all sorts of beach games like volleyball. In between North Beach and Castle Beach is the picturesque harbour, which also has a sandy beach. The harbour is clean and sheltered so is a good place for toddlers.
Regular boat trips run from Tenby harbour to Caldey Island, just offshore from Tenby's South Beach, it is owned by monks of The Cistercian Order and has an active monastery.
The centre of Tenby is a maze of narrow little streets. There are plenty of interesting and quirky shops, bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants. There's also the National Trust owned Tudor Merchant's House and the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery to visit, amongst many other visitor attractions in Tenby.
If you can tear yourself away from Tenby's beaches we can recommend visits to the local town of Narberth or the unique and tiny city of St David's with it's 12th Century Cathedral and ruined Bishop's Palace. Barafundle Bay is also well worth a visit - voted Britain's best beach and one of the most beautiful places on earth, it is reachable only on foot. Stackpole Quay, Freshwater West (Wales's premier surfing beach) and Freshwater East, Bosherston Lakes, Manorbier and it's castle - there are so many beautiful places nearby you are spoilt for choice.

"The best family holiday we have had!"
St. Mary's House in Tenby was perfect for our large group which included 6 young children and 8 adults. The rooms were so spacious that we never felt on top of eachother, and we loved the huge kitchen table which allowed us to all sit together to eat. The beds were very comfy and the whole house clean and well-equipped. We were so close to the beach as well as the town centre, which meant everyone was happy. The house had a much-loved family feel about it which made us feel at home instantly - we will definitely be back again!

"perfect for a family get-together in a beautiful part of the world"
This well- equipped large house, within a few minutes of the beach in Tenby, was ideal for our family reunion. Each bedroom had ensuite facilities, and although it suggested 12 people, we also had plenty of room for two extra toddlers in travel cots. It has a lovely large kitchen/dining area, and a laundry room which was very useful. Two large lounges, which meant there was a quiet space for anyone who wanted a quiet reading place.

"perfect for our extended family of 12"
We had a great weekend, the house has a large comfortable kitchen / dining area which easily accommodated us all. All the rooms have en-suite facilities and are clean and comfy.
There is no real outside space, but we didn't miss it as the beach and seafront are so close. No parking attached, but we used Sainsbury's car park which cost £2 for 24hours and is a 5 minute walk away.
Tenby is perfect for a short break, lots to explore, just watch out for seagulls trying to steal your food if eating outdoors!
