So a week ago we “crossed the border” into Wales over the Severn Bridge (old one), arriving at Tenby in ti
me to have a drink on the beach before heading for a fish and chips dinner. Tenby is on the Pembrokeshire coast of Wales.
Tenby is an interesting place. With early records traced to sometime in the 9th century, it was a walled town with a castle in the 13th century. The Victorians developed Tenby into a holiday resort. Boasting a couple of pretty good beaches it proved to be a great spot to enjoy some summer sunshine.
Despite a booking mix-up (our fault) we were made very welcome at the Clement Dale Guest House by Trevor and Ros Wood. Breakfasts – traditional English bacon and eggs were great! The guest house is well situated with South Beach a couple of blocks in one direction and the walled town a couple of blocks in the other. In fact the whole area was perfect for an early morning walk with the camera every morning.
Apart from some almost perfect summer weather, I will remember sitting in the dark in sight and sound of the sea, drinking wine and eating fish and chips from long established local chippy Fecci and Sons.
Thinking of a holiday, or just a few days getaway? Give Tenby a thought. It is a few hours drive away, but easily accessible by train from most of the UK.
