Summer Holidays in Tenby, Pembrokeshire

The kids Summer holidays are now upon us.  Are you looking for a family Summer holiday staycation?  Well, why not visit us in Tenby?

Tenby is a picturesque Victorian Seaside Town situated in South Pembrokeshire.  As a town on the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path it has the benefits of being surrounded by fantastic walks and stunning beaches, which means that whether you are looking for a walking holiday, or a beach holiday –  Tenby has everything to offer.

So, if you’re planning on staying or visiting Tenby this Summer we thought we would get together some of the best things you and your family can do on a summer holiday in Pembrokeshire.

1. Ice Cream and Sandcastles

Tenby can boast three amazing sandy beaches right here in the town, Tenby South Beach, Tenby North Beach and Tenby South Beach.  So there are plenty of options of places for you too spread out and enjoy the sunshine with your family.  There is a lot of space for you to build sandcastles, enjoy a summer-read and play in the sea.  And whilst you’re at it why not enjoy an ice cream and for a real family sea-side holiday.

2. Visit the Monks on Caldey Island

If you want to escape the buzzing streets of Tenby then the monastery at Caldey should be on your Pembrokeshire holiday itinerary.   The first Monastery on this island was founded in the sixth century and thrived during the Middle Ages. The current monastery was built in the 1900’s and is a fine example of Arts and Crafts style architecture.  Take the Tenby Ferry over for a family day out to visit the medieval church, spot some wonderful wildlife, and maybe buy some of the cheese, perfume, or one of the other products produced by the monks themselves.

3. Step Back in Time

The National Trust owned Tudor Merchant’s House is a wonderful spot in Tenby.  Tucked away on Quay Hill overlooking the harbour the Tudor Merchant’s House reflects the life and experience of a wealthy family at the turn of the 16th century.   Look out for living history experiences during your summer holiday this year to get the most out of your trip.   Tenby also houses its own characterful Museum and Art Gallery, which is well worth a quick visit during your holiday in Tenby – it is the oldest independent museum in Wales!

4. See some real-life Heroes

Tenby has had it’s fair share of life-boat stations, and the current one is open for the public to visit! Children love to see the lifeboat, and the friendly volunteer lifeboat crew are on hand to answer questions.  Once a fortnight the crew launch the life-boat for the crowd of people who gather to watch it.  Check out their website to keep up to date with events and launches.

5. Walk the Coast-Path

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is world-famous for its beautiful walks and fantastic views.  An advantage of enjoying a holiday in Tenby is that, as a coastal town, these walks are right on your doorstep.  There are a range of difficulty levels and distances of walks which  you can take.  So whether you just fancy a little family-friendly potter or a serious ramble, Tenby and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path can give you all  you need.

This is a just a list for you to be getting on with – if you’re visiting Tenby, Pembrokeshire this summer for your holidays there is so much more to see.  Tenby’s surrounding area features a number of exciting activities from paintabbling, rollercoasters, zoo’s, beaches and castles.  We hope that you find Pembrokeshire as exciting and beautiful as we do, and will visit us this summer holiday.
