A couple staying in Tenby

We think the Porthole is a perfect property for a romantic getaway and it is superbly situated for the two of you to explore the best bits of Pembrokeshire together.

Tenby itself is a great to explore on those days you don’t fancy driving out and there are fabulous places to visit and things to do which are just a short journey away. If you’re feeling more adventurous and have time, you can also make the most of how well-connected Tenby is to the rest of the county.

Within the town there are plenty of options for brunch dates before starting the day proper. Ideas such as a trip to Caldey (seasonal) or a day spent on the sea are possible without having to drive and are fantastic ways for you to make memories.

Celtic Haven in Lydstep, Dovecote Naturally at Trefloyne Manor and St Brides in Saundersfoot are nearby spas will help you achieve ultimate relaxation during your stay. They are all also home to restaurants which serve easy going, tasty lunches or afternoon teas.

In the evenings, Tenby’s beaches provide the opportunity for a romantic stroll before heading out to supper. Penally Abbey, The Salt Cellar and Coast just a few nearby restaurants which should tick the box if you are celebrating a special occasion. There are also plenty of options for more casual dining or a fish and chip treat enjoyed with a stunning sea view.

If you’re looking to spend a few days exploring further afield, there are a plenty of opportunities for you to combine a fantastic walk and delicious lunch. The award winning Stackpole Inn near Pembroke will help you round off a walk around Stackpole woods or along the cliffs from the quay. It is also close to Bosheston Lily Ponds, Barafundle and Broadhaven beaches. Crackling fires in the winter and garden seating in the summer await.

Narberth is an excellent town for a cosy day out, this fantastic place has shops stuffed with beautiful things and excellent eateries such as Ultracomida, which offers tapas dishes for the ultimate shared experience. A trip here can also be combined with a leisurely walk or cycle around Canaston or Minwear woods.

Alternatively, for a day spent exploring together, St Davids is definitely worth a visit and the peninsula on which the city is located offers fabulous coastal walking. For something more adventurous you can head out for a surf or go coasteering with one of the adventure companies near St Davids or another of the many within the county. A wildlife watching boat trip around one of Pembrokeshire’s islands is also a sure way to make the most of a getaway here, and again also creates long lasting memories.

Finally, Pembrokeshire Picnics provide a service whereby delicious treats are laid out on blankets and cushions for you and your other half to enjoy, at any spot of your choosing within the county. We think this would be an excellent idea if you’re looking to add an extra special twist to your stay with us here at the Porthole.
