Be beside the seaside at the Esplanade

Beguiling wallpaper – from swirling swallows to lilyponds – welcomes you to the bedrooms at the popular four-star Esplanade, located just a five-minute walk from Castle Beach. The ocean views from the high-floor family or single rooms are every bit as majestic as you’d imagine. After a walk along the beach, relax with a drink or a piece of cake next to the fire in the lounge.

Explore the village of Penally from the New Overlander Inn

About 3km (1.9mi) from the centre of Tenby, the New Overlander Inn allows you to explore the village of Penally and its unspoilt beach. While the stretch of sand is an extension of South Beach, it has its own unique charm and character. Not as crowded as other swimming spots in the area, the sand and shingle beach, which is backed by dunes, is shielded from the wind by the headland of Giltar Point. Return to a traditional meal at the restaurant, which serves up creamy mussels and slow-braised steak.

Enjoy personalised service at the Strathmore

A family-run B&B in a six-bedroom house, the Strathmore prides itself on providing the sort of personal touch bigger hotels can’t. A location right next to South Beach means the two rear-facing rooms – numbers 2 and 5, if you’re curious – have magical ocean vistas. All the rooms exude elegance, with some featuring pastel-coloured walls, tub chairs and – in room number 1 – a historic pencil drawing.

Relax among flower-filled gardens at Gower View Luxury Bed & Breakfast

If the complimentary shortbread doesn’t put a smile on your face at Gower View, then the peaceful surroundings – 3km (1.9mi) outside Tenby – will. Choose between the powder-blue Garden Cabin overlooking the, well, garden, or the new luxury Eco Cabin. Situated between the house and a small forest, the latter is the perfect romantic bolt hole.

Vacation in Victorian style at the Coach Guest House

Coach Guest House has stood in Deer Park for over 150 years. Originally built as a holiday retreat for the gentry to enjoy the sea air during the mid-19th century, it became a guest house during the Victorian era. With four award-winning beaches within walking distance of the seven brightly decorated rooms, getting some recuperative fresh air yourself is hassle-free.

Breathe in sea breezes at the Southcliff Hotel

Located in a Victorian building dating back to 1879, one street down from the beachfront, Southcliffe captures the combination of history and natural beauty that makes Tenby so popular. The town’s Medieval town walls are a stone’s throw away – as is the harbour, where you can book a boat trip to Caldey Island to visit the resident Cistercian monks or go seal spotting.

Stay within walking distance of everywhere at Gumfreston Hotel

Formerly two houses during the Victorian times, Gumfreston Hotel was transformed into a hotel before becoming a family-run guest house with eight newly renovated rooms. Just 350m (1,148ft) from the centre of Tenby and 200m (656ft) from South Beach, Gumfreston’s location is a huge selling point – whether you prefer diving into local history or into Carmarthen Bay.

Walk the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from Mellieha Guest House

Sitting pretty on a lush green hill in the picturesque valley of Amroth, 150m (492ft) from the sea and bordering the Colby Woodland Garden, the Mellieha marks the gateway to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Every room here offers a different experience, and the odd whimsical names – from Badger Point, with its panoramic ocean vistas, to Colby View, with elevated views of the garden – add a charming touch.

Browse Narberth boutiques from Canaston Oaks
