Tenby: Top Ten Experiences

Tenby: Top Ten Experiences

I first visited Tenby as an eight-year-old with my parents and still have very clear memories of my time there. Then, when my own children came along, I visited a second time and they experienced many of the things I had done twenty years earlier. Now, thanks to Coastal Cottages, I was able to visit again. I stayed in an apartment just a few hundred metres from the Old Town Walls. Cheriton View was conveniently located to explore Tenby on foot. So, during our stay, we explored by walking everywhere. However, Tenby is a great base for exploring further afield too. You can read my review of Cheriton View in another post on this website. Visit the harbour For me, the attraction of Tenby has always been the harbour. One of the more picturesque harbours around the coast of Great…

Review: Cheriton View, Tenby – from Coastal Cottages

Review: Cheriton View, Tenby – from Coastal Cottages

Cheriton View in Tenby is in a street of similar Victorian houses common to many British holiday towns, and apart from its soft lilac colour, it could easily be missed. Looks can be deceiving though. I knew better than to judge a property by its outward appearance especially as the few days stay had been arranged through Coastal Cottages – Pembrokeshire’s premier holiday letting agency. I had previously visited Pembrokeshire and stayed at 1 Neylands Marina, one of their other properties. That property had wowed me and I knew I could expect something special from the current property in Tenby. Historically Tenby was a walled town with plenty of narrow streets. Parts of those walls remain and the tightly packed houses make it very pedestrian friendly and unfriendly to cars. Outside the walls, the developing town was built when visitors arrived by…

Pembrokeshire highlights for a short break

Pembrokeshire highlights for a short break

Four days in the South Wales county of Pembrokeshire is not enough to experience everything it has to offer. I realised that it was foolish to even try so I chose a select few which I felt gave me a sense of what Pembrokeshire is all about. Pembrokeshire is the peninsula sticking out into the Irish Sea in the southern part of Wales. Surrounded on three sides by water – the Bristol Channel, Irish Sea and Cardigan Bay it has a long and varied coastline. You could spend a fortnight exploring the long sweeping beaches, the quaint little coves and the rugged cliffs populated by sea birds. The Pembrokeshire coastline is blessed with Britains longest coastal footpath from which you can explore these delights. However, with only four days this kind of expedition was out of the question. Here then are my highlights. Tenby…

Review: 1 Neylands Marina – The Wow! factor plus

Review: 1 Neylands Marina – The Wow! factor plus

Accommodation, of whatever type, that is well appointed always creates a good impression; that all important “Wow!” factor the moment you walk through the door. The marina apartment at 1 Neylands Marina that we stayed in had that “Wow!” factor in spadefuls. Everything was well thought out, good quality and tastefully coordinated. Anyone can create something similar that will “Wow” a guest but it takes a little something else to raise the accommodation to “Wow!” level plus. From the moment we stepped through the door we felt welcome. No one was there to greet us but, the owner and the agency Coastal Cottages had gone out of their way to make us feel welcome. Firstly there was a note from the owners welcoming us and a hamper with a handwritten card from the Concierge Service offered by Coastal Cottages. The…
