Weather in Tenby
The best time to visit Tenby is during summer, when the famous Welsh blue sky makes its appearance. It does get crowded as holidaymakers arrive from Swansea, Cardiff and further afield, so try to book your Tenby holiday cottage well in advance. If you visit in spring or autumn, you'll get more peace and quiet, plus there will be some good discounts on Tenby holiday accommodation.
What to do in Tenby
Known as "Little England Beyond Wales", Tenby delights with its pubs, ice cream parlours and cafes that are perfect for people-watching. Popular among the town's attractions is the glassblower demonstrating his craft — you can even buy some handcrafted ornamental glassware here. The 15th-century St Mary's Church is hard to miss with its towering spire and carved ceiling bosses.
Walk down to the harbour from your holiday cottage and take a cruise to the monastic Caldey Island, a haven for bird watchers and an oasis of calm. Tenby’s Welsh name, Dinbych-y-Pysgod, translates as 'Little Fortress of the Fish'. A fishing expedition will prove this name quite right. Meanwhile, the sandy Freshwater East Beach beguiles with its scenic coastal paths, sand dunes and wildlife.
Fancy riding through Welsh dramatic coasts and woodlands on a handsome horse? Look no further than Nolton Stables where even novices are welcome. For insider information on Tenby's resident pirates, aliens and witches, try the Tenby Ghost Walk, which takes visitors through some of the town's eeriest corners. And afterwards, come home and unwind in your Tenby holiday letting.
Holidays with pets in Tenby
Boasting plenty of outdoor spaces, Tenby is the ideal location for holidaying with your four-legged friends. Many of Tenby’s holiday cottages allow you to bring your pets, and many of the town’s pubs welcome dogs, meaning you don’t have to leave them at home when you go away. Here are three of the best ideas for what to do with pets in Tenby.
- Walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path Winding over 300km of breathtaking coastal paths, country lanes, and bridleways, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a haven for dogs and dog-lovers alike. Dogs are welcome on most beaches, although there are some restrictions in summer. Your furry friends are even welcome on the buses that ferry passengers between the coastal areas.
- Visit Manorbier Bay With its craggy rockpools and wide expanse of sand, Manorbier Beach is the perfect dog-friendly location. Dogs are welcome year-round, and there is a pretty coastal path off the beach leading eastwards towards Swanlake Bay or westwards towards Presipe bay and Skrinkle Haven.
- Take your pooch to the dog agility course Just outside Tenby, Heatherton’s dog agility course is the perfect place for exercising your dog. Ten obstacles, including a tunnel, hurdles and a bridge, test your pet’s skill and agility, making for a fun day out for all the family.
