Heading over for LCW, or another event this year?
Perhaps you visited the area last year for LCW and fancy exploring somewhere other than Tenby?
Then we’ve got the answer right here..
Now, don’t get us wrong, we LOVE Tenby! Tenby is beautiful, bustling with things to do, amazing beaches and scenic spots.
With all of these amazing factors, no wonder in the summer it can be difficult to find anywhere to stay (especially during Long Course Weekend).
There may be a few of you athletes that have only visited the area to take part in one of our events, you may not know all of the other areas you can stay or visit that are just a stone throw away from Tenby – and just as beautiful.
So if you are struggling to find accommodation in Tenby, either for LCW or a holiday, or your just wanting to try somewhere new, we have put together a few locations.
(we cannot guarantee these places won’t be just as busy, we are just trying to broaden your Pembrokeshire options)
If you have visited Pembrokeshire before, we would be surprised if you hadn’t ventured into Saundersfoot before.
A beautiful seaside village, 10 minuted outside of Tenby, a small village that is packed with amazing places to stay and eat! You may find yourself never wanting to leave Saundersfoot.
