A holiday in Wales and perfect Tenby

We have just returned from a week in South Wales.

Last year we spent a week in North Wales and loved it.

This year we hired a house in Aberporth. Unfortunately, the house just didn’t work for us and the location was at least an hour from anywhere we wanted to be.

The house had a kitchen downstairs and the lounge was upstairs. For us this meant barricading ourselves in either the kitchen or the lounge, for fear of losing sight of a curious 1 year old. We just couldn’t relax.

We spent our first few days up and down the coast exploring. 

Our favourite place was beautiful Tenby.

A lovely lady who owns a pet shop in Tenby told us…

“If you first see Tenby on a sunny day you will fall in love with it”

We did. A quaint selection of shops and cafes and a spectacular beach. Not commercialised at all compared to the Norfolk seaside towns we’re used to. It even rivalled our favourite Cornwall spot, St Ives.

We loved it so much that we locked up the dreary holiday house and spent 3 days on a Tenby caravan site just so we could be walking distance to the beach.

We spent entire days on the beach and we’re not usually beach people. We usually just plod along the sand a bit then go off on our way. Tenby was different. So 3 beach mats, a pop up tent and 4 buckets & spades later, we were set up for the day.


Paddling, rock pools, sandcastles and playing ball. The children had so much fun and we did too.

Tenby turned our holiday around and has given us the best memories. We can’t wait to go back.

  2. I have many happy memories of visiting Tenby as a child! It was one of our favourite destinations. I hope to take my kids there one day, but it’s a bit far for us at the moment as they’re still quite small. I’m glad your holiday was saved in the end #triumphanttales

  3. We used to go to Tenby when I was little and it is on my list of places to take my Little Man to, even more so after reading this! Thanks so much for linking up to #TriumphantTales – hope to see you again on Tuesday!
