Family Friendly Activities within 15 minute drive of Tenby 

Pembrokeshire is a fantastic place to bring the family all year round.  There are lots of beaches to choose from and plenty of coastal walks to explore - however, sometimes when you have a family, that's not enough to keep them entertained.  Here are our 10 suggestions of things to do within walking distance and within a 15 minute drive of the hotel in Tenby:

  1. Tudor Merchant's House (7 minute walk) - Run by the National Trust, the house is being transformed back to the way it may have looked in 1500, how it looked back in Tenby's hey day
  2. Folly Farm (15 minute drive) - With over 250 animals at the zoo, the indoor Jolly Barn & Farm, adventure play area, vintage funfair, racetrack and Dragon Adventure this really is more than just a farm.  Fun for all ages with lots to do indoors if it's a rainy day too!  Check opening times on the website New for 2016: Folly Farm have added Eastern Black Rhinos to their animal family!
  3. Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire (approx 15 minute drive) - Outdoor laser combat (not to be confused with laser tag).  Ideal for the competitive parents out there!  If you want to get the family dressed up in all the camouflage gear with matching face paint and stalk through the jungle-like battlefield armed with a gun (a laser one that is!) then this is the place to go in Pembrokeshire!  Minimum age 7 years.  Visit the website for family discounts
  4. Heatherton (9 minute drive) - No admission costs - just pay as you play!  Plenty to offer for the kids AND the big kids in the family too!  Bumperboats, karting, body zorbs, water wars and loads more!  Or if you're feeling adventurous you could try their Tree Tops Adventure Trail! Check out the pricing structure
  5. Manor House Wildlife Park (9 minute drive) - Set in 52 acres of Pembrokeshire parkland there is plenty of exotic animals for the kids to discover with daily talks and feeds with the meerkats and lemurs and lots more. Meet Zuberi, Zamba and Jambo, Southern White Rhinos, the first in Wales for 40,000 years!  Visit the website for details of the Zoonique Walkthroughs
  6. Ocean Commotion (4 minute walk) - Tenby's indoor children's playcentre in the centre of Tenby.  Unlimited play for just £5.   Ideal for a rainy day or if you need a break from the sunshine! The centre is split over 6 levels - so there is plenty for the kids to explore and you to relax in the cafe area (we even spotted some alcohol on sale).  Visit the website for opening times
  7. Caldey Island Boat Trip (Approx 10 minute walk to Tenby Harbour) - Spend the day exploring the historic Old Priory and medieval chires or join a free guided walk to look into the island's heritage.  The kids are likely to be most interested the 'Chocolate making room' where the Abbots Kitchen Chocolate bars are hand-made!   A fleet of boats runs to the island from Tenby Harbour from Easter to October.  Visit the website for sailing times
