While we were on holiday last week at Bluestone in Wales, we decided to visit the seaside town of Tenby one day as I’d heard good things about it. We had a fab day there, it’s an absolutely beautiful place and has definitely become one of my favourite places, I can’t wait to go back! If only it wasn’t a five hour drive away…
Tenby is less than a 30 minute drive from Bluestone, so if you are staying there I would highly recommend that you visit. Aside from the beautiful beach and pretty painted buildings, Tenby is steeped in history. With it’s medieval town walls, harbour, St Mary’s Church and St Catherine’s Island, there is so much to discover in this Welsh seaside town.
We got lucky on the day that we went as the sun was shining, everything is so much better in the sun isn’t it? We played on the beach, paddled in the sea, collected shells and ate ice cream. We also explored the town and admired (and took lots of photos of!) the gorgeous colourful buildings that Tenby has so many of.
Neither me or James are usually fans of beaches, I think it’s the sand, I just don’t like the feel of it! But there was just something about Tenby beach, it’s so pretty that we just couldn’t resist it. During our holiday in Wales the kids had been quite difficult and it had been stressful at times but on this particular day everything went so well. The kids loved playing on the beach and exploring, it was a pretty prefect day and one that I will remember for a long time.
Here are a few (OK, a lot!) photos that we took during our day at Tenby…
Have you ever been to Tenby? Let me know what other seaside towns in the UK you love, I’d love to visit a few more this year.
Thanks for reading.
