Where To Stay In Tenby, UK: 8 Best Hotels & Holiday Homes

where to stay in tenby uk

Tenby is a delightful little town on the seaside, in the region of Pembrokeshire, West Wales. There’s plenty of cute little beaches and spots to hang out on by the sea. As with many towns and cities by the sea, you can bet there’s an abundance of fresh, quality seafood here. Not only are there 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) of sandy beaches at your disposal, but Tenby is also a historic place, featuring many Medieval structures, old buildings and streets. The town played a role of strategic importance throughout history, because of its location by the sea. It also faced numerous sieges throughout the ages, including a bout with the plague in 1650. These days, however, Tenby is very much a coastal tourist town with a lot of sunshine in the summer. There’s plenty to see and do here, so if you find yourself heading to Tenby, then check out these great spots for accommodation.

Aside from its other amenities, this apartment features a large window for watching the world go by while you enjoy your morning coffee. Its central location makes it a great starting point for any adventure.
