We stayed near Denbych-y-pysgod, otherwise known as Tenby in South Wales. We stayed in a Georgian (1814) farmhouse, (yellow push-pin on the map) about 2 miles east of Pembroke. The weather was great for Wales in October, in fact it was great for the UK at anytime. The coloured routes on the maps below show our longer walks.
Sunday, we had a long walk (the blue route on the map) south to Freshwater East, then along the coast to Manorbier and then back, via a very muddy lane, very popular with cows. We walked about 13 miles in all. Pictures:
Monday, we visted Tenby, and walked just about every street, following an historic Town Trail. We then went BACK around the town by courtesy of well-known equine local celebrity ‘Mr Ed’ and his handler John. Watch the film below. Just click the big white triangle, to start, then click the arrows just below the YouTube logo to watch in full screen.
Wednesday, we visited Caldey Island, (the yellow route on the map) two miles off the coast from Tenby. It is owned by a group of about 16 Cistercian monks, who make perfume and fudge. It was very tranquil. ‘Cistercian’ derives from Cistercium, the Latin name for the village of Citeaux, near Dijon in eastern France.
