Inspiration Wednesday – Tenby

TenbyThis week’s #InspirationWednesday is the stunning harbour town of Tenby. Home to three Blue-Flag beaches, a pretty old town of brightly-painted homes and original 13th century medieval town walls, it’s no wonder this is a popular tourist attraction.

Sat next to the Pembrokeshire National Park and with 2.5 miles of beach, this is a tranquil and stunning place to live. It was once an area with an economy based around fishing, but today it is more dependent on tourism.

The area is perfect for family living, with plenty of places to visit and things to do, such as Carew Castle, Oakwood Theme Park, Blue Lagoon Waterpark, Manorbier Castle and Penally Abbey! If you fancy a bit more of an adventure, you can venture onto Caldney Island, St Catherine’s Island or Skomer too, to see a little wildlife!
