The local area

Local activities

Voted the second best place to live in the UK in 2021, Tenby is a beautiful small town steeped in medieval history and fringed by miles of fine sandy beaches and an idyllic coastline.  Narrow lanes run through the town connecting restaurants, quirky shops and chilled out cafes, perfect for an afternoon stroll or a little retail therapy.

Waterwynch House rests in between Tenby (two miles south) and Saundersfoot (two miles north) in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park. The house is perfectly located  to indulge in the extraordinary wealth of attractions the area has to offer, whether it’s history, culture, nature, water sports, beach life or dining in or eating out – there is something to suit everyone in this idyllic location.

If you’re looking for an active vacation, there’s a wealth of hiking around Tenby and cycling in the local area . The the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs across the very back of the property and is just a five minute walk away.

There’s plenty to do on the water too from island cruises, chartered boats, fishing trips or wildlife excursions to paddle boarding, surfing and coasteering. Getting around is easy with local access to bike, car, taxi and even tuk-tuk hire to take in the sights!
