Tenby Cottages

A walled seaside town with a population of 5,000, the centre is a maze of narrow little streets; set on Carmarthen Bay, it has some 2½ miles of sandy beaches. North Beach is 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.

In between North Beach and Castle Beach is the picturesque harbour, which also has a sandy beach. Established by the Normans as a fortified town, much remains of the old town walls that were built by the 1st Earl of Pembroke in the late C13th; one small keep tower still exists of the castle that was built to defend Tenby. While the castle is impressive because of its striking position, the medieval town defences are magnificent in their strength and the extent of their preservation.

Founded in 1878, Tenby Museum traces the history of the town from earliest recorded times together with local archaeology and geology galleries, maritime history and displays on the natural history of Pembrokeshire. There are also two art galleries, one of which houses the permanent exhibition of works by artists with a local connection including Augustus and Gwen John whilst the other has many changing exhibitions throughout the year.

The National Trust owned Tudor Merchant's House is in the centre of the town and one can step back 500 years and discover how the merchant and his family would have lived in this three-storey house, situated close to the harbour within the walled town.

Children can try on Tudor costume and play with replica toys and the staff wear Tudor costume on Bank Holidays. A pleasant boat trip from Tenby Harbour takes visitors to the beautiful and fascinating Caldey Island. It is now owned by monks of the Cistercian Order, whose picturesque monastery overlooks the Village Green and the pretty cottages of the islanders. Visitors can explore the historic Old Priory and the medieval churches of St David and St Illtud and are also welcome to attend one of the short chanted services in the Abbey Church, which forms part of the daily prayer life of the monks.

In the village you can buy the perfumes, chocolate and shortbread made on the island; the Village Post Office is also a museum. The coastal village of Manorbier is five miles south-west of Tenby and has a Norman castle which was only attacked twice in its entire history; the latter occasion was during the English Civil War when the castle was seized by Parliamentarian forces in 1645 and slighted to prevent further use by the Royalists.

The Chapel, which was built around 1260, has elaborate vaulting and plaster-work; some of the original medieval frescoes can still be seen. Together with the castle, there are also gardens, dovecote and a mill. Just to the west of Tenby are three attractions. At the Dinosaur Park, you take a mile long walk through ancient woodland and on boardwalks across swamps on the trail of 30 prehistoric friends together will a number of other activities.

Manor House Wildlife Park is home to a wide range of animals from a Southern White Rhino to Zebra and facilities here include a Lemur Walkthrough and a Wallaby Walkthrough. The Park also has many different birds - flamingos, ostrich, emus, macaws and guinea fowl for example.

Heatherton's World of Activities is open all year and is a favourite all weather attraction with much to do under cover. Heathertons range of activities include paintball, tree top high wire courses, go karts, archery, air pistols, Wales largest slot car racing, Laser Clays and Zorbs on water plus a coarse fishing lake, adventure golf, an 18 hole golf course, driving range, 4 rink indoor bowls and an indoor play area.
