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.
This cosy, one bedroom apartment is right in the middle of historic Tenby! It’s a perfect little spot if you’re travelling alone or with a partner. The views from the apartment look out onto the historic town centre and its cobblestone streets below. Feel like you’re living in the Middle Ages without the risk of catching the plague! 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.

This is a modernised, traditional Welsh cottage, located in the quaint residential side of town. It is located just a short five-minute walk away from the centre of town and the beaches. You can get the best of both worlds with this cottage by spending your time relaxing at home during the evenings and lounging on the beaches during the day. The property itself dates back to the Victorian period and whilst still modern, there are some original features here such as the floors, a fireplace and a back courtyard. The courtyard has lights and plenty of space for people bringing in kayaks or other water gear, as well as a BBQ.
