Local Area Information


St Florence and nearby Tenby are steeped in history and renowned for the warm welcome the two communities extend to visitors to the area. South Pembrokeshire is stunningly picturesque with its many sandy beaches, magnificent coastline, rolling countryside and heritage sites.

St Florence is an attractive and peaceful village with a 12th century church and distinctive Flemish chimneys on some of the properties. There is a well-stocked village shop, two pubs and an excellent garden centre with restaurant. Manor House Wildlife Park and Heatherton World of Activities can both be found near the entrance to the village, while the Dinosaur Park and Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo are a short drive away.

Tenby has 3 Blue Flag beaches and is generally thought to be the prettiest seaside town in Wales. Established by the Normans as a fortified town, Tenby has retained its town walls. Within the walls the town is a maze of narrow streets, which are pedestrianised during the day in summer when many of the bars and restaurants offer al fresco dining. Brightly coloured boats sail from Tenby harbour to Caldey Island from Easter to October.

Established in 1888, Tenby Golf Club was named Welsh Golf Club of the Year in 2014. Renowned for being the birthplace of golf in Wales, the club boasts one of the finest championship links courses in the country. 

Even closer to home, Manorbier beach has been awarded the Green Coast Award in recognition of its cleanliness, high standard of water quality and environmental management.

Farther afield there are almost unlimited opportunities to enjoy the countryside and coastal walks. In addition to our local castles - Manorbier, Carew and Pembroke - we recommend a visit to the Tudor Merchant's House in Tenby, the remains of the Bishop's Palace at Lamphey, Bosherston Lily Ponds and the cathedral city of St Davids.
