Charming, Individual, Eccentric Even… Have a Wander

West Wales is home to some of the most interesting and unique towns and cities in the country. Take some time in your holiday to visit some of the gorgeous shops and quaint cafes on offer. 


Tenby - pictured above - is probably one of the most iconic towns in the country.


With its oft-photographed cove and cute shops set in Harry-Potter-esque alleys, Tenby is definitely worth making part of your holiday.

It was awarded Silver for the best UK coastal resort at the British Travel awards in 2016.

Drive time from Trenewydd: 57 minutes


This place is beautiful, nestled between the Preseli hills and the coast - try a walk in the ancient Pengelli woodlands.

If you are a music fan, the International Music Festival is a must; or AberJazz, a jazz and blues festival.

The main square hosts Ffwrn for delicious bread, and The Gourmet Pig for Welsh cheese; add a little something from the Bluestone Brewing Company or Gwaun Valley Brewery, and you're set. 

Ferries to Ireland also depart from here.

St Davids

Named after the patron saint of Wales, St Davids has the honour of being the smallest city in Britain with a population of just over 1,600.


Located in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park, St Davids is designated as a conservation area. The peninsular here has some of the most magnificent coastal scenery in Pembrokeshire.

Get your camera ready for this one; with its multi-coloured buildings and photo-worthy high street, a trip to Narberth is a must.


If you want to do some shopping, this is a great choice with its wealth of fabulous  independent shops - and why not finish up at one of the award-winning cafes, pubs or restaurants.

Drive time from Trenewydd: 42 minutes


Set on the Taf Estuary, this town is famous for its connection to poet Dylan Thomas, and very proud of it.


You can even do the Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk, and if it's on your birthday there'll be a small something special for you. 

The castle here is also attractive and worth a visit.
