A fifteen minute walk past the lovely north beach will bring you in to heart of the walled town of Tenby with its quaint shops and cobbled streets. From the north beach in season you can catch a boat over the Caldy Island (a twenty minute boatride) to see the Cistercian monastery and ancient churches. Also indulge in the chocolate factory and perfume shop. There walks around the island and to its old lighthouse.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire is world famous for its fabulous coastal path which runs 186 miles around its coastline. There are wonderful walks also along the two Cleddau rivers which dissect the county. But Pembrokeshire is more than just glorious scenery and bracing walks. There are golf courses and theme parks, fishing and boating. This is an area seeped in history with many ancient castles - such as Pembroke Castle, the birthplace of Henry VII, who started the Tudor Dynasty. There is the bishop's palace and the beautiful cathedral at St David's. Boat trips around Ramsey Island with its treacherous Bitches afford an exciting day out for thrill seekers. From the cliff tops you can see the baby seals as they wait on the shingles. In season Skomer Island is the home of the the comical puffin, as well as many other seabirds who come to breed. For those who love surfing, coasteering, kayaking (both sea and river), this is the place to be. And there are beaches galore for those who just want to rest up with a good book and play sand castles. Did I mention the Preseli hills? Where the bluestone was cut and taken to cap the monoliths of Stone Henge? Another totally different area to explore which will draw you into its secret and breathtaking Gwaun Valley. A place lost in time. Coming south the beautiful Milford Haven Waterway drifts out among islands and ancient forts - both Iron Age and more modern Palmerston Follies. Huge tankers plough through the waters bringing gas and oil to the refineries along the banks and the occasional cruise ship stops by too, as does the Irish Ferries' Inish Mor twice daily between Pembroke Dock and Rosslare in Ireland. Pembrokeshire is indeed a place with much to offer.
The cottage is in Tenby or Dinbych y pyscod (Little Town of the Fishes). Tenby is a picturesque ancient walled seaside town complete with ruined castle. There are two beaches. The North beach which is more sheltered with its dock and sailing boats. Then there is the South beach which stretches from Tenby to the Giltar, a rocky headland. Both have wonderful soft fine white sand. There are usually plenty of icecreams, cool drinks and snacks available on or near the beaches. The south beach looks over to the lovely island of Caldy with its white monastery and lighthouse. A twenty minute boat ride - usually from the north beach, will take you over to this fascinating spot with its ancient history and its chocolate factory.
Tenby itself is a warren of quaint little streets winding in and out of its walls. Restaurants abound for every taste. Lots of little shops to explore for souvenirs of the very special place.
