“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”

Jacques Cousteau

Tenby is many things to many people – a gorgeous walled seaside town, probably most famous for its sugared almond coloured houses around its quaint harbour, but there is so much more to Tenby than just fish and chips and buckets and spades. Whether you’re local to the area or considering Tenby as the place for your next move, we think (actually, we know) you’ll find that South Pembrokeshire, and Tenby in particular, has plenty to offer. At Waterstone Homes, we’re always uncovering hidden gems and finding new reasons to love the area. Here are just a few of our favourites.

It’s beautiful but also has everything you need…

Probably the most iconic seaside town in Wales, Tenby is steeped in ancient history and surrounded by an imposing medieval stone wall which surrounds the cobbled lanes and grand Georgian houses that jostle for space around the iconic harbour and its stunning beaches. Tenby has excellent communications including a railway station with a two hourly service from Swansea or the ferry port at Pembroke Dock with direct sailings to Ireland. Bus services operate all along the south coast and inland to Haverfordwest and Kilgetty. The town harbour has a thriving boating and fishing community as well as being the departure point for the Caldey Island boats and also the fishing and pleasure trips.
There’s always something going on…

Aside from the harbour, Tenby is blessed with no less than three sandy beaches, lovely for sailing, snoozing and scoffing ice cream. A little further inland, you will find Narberth, a gorgeous little market town packed with multi coloured Edwardian and Georgian buildings lining the high street which has developed quite a reputation as a shopper’s heaven. Independent shops selling a whole range of exquisite items from fine art to fine food rub shoulders with vintage and antique shops interspersed with award winning cafes, pubs and restaurants galore. The whole of South Pembrokeshire is dotted with quaint and fascinating towns and villages, like Manorbier with it impressive castle dominating the cliffline or Wiseman’s Bridge, a tiny seaside hamlet with a rocky beach in between Saundersfoot and Amroth. It is linked to Saundersfoot by a series of three tunnels through which a narrow gauge railway once travelled carrying coal from the local mines to Saundersfoot Harbour.

It’s definitely one for the foodies

Whether you want to enjoy a riverside picnic, a coastal lunch, a gourmet meal in an award winning restaurant or simply just buy local ingredients to make your barbecue that little bit more special, Pembrokeshire’s friendly farm shops, farmers’ markets, cafes, restaurants and pubs will provide you with mouth watering food made with the finest produce in Wales.

It’s ideal for family life.
