About Saundersfoot

Just across the bay from postcard-perfect Tenby, Saundersfoot is no less attractive sibling. Definitely smaller, but charmingly formed, Saundersfoot sits against a long stretch of sandy beach with a very nice harbour at one end. The houses are well kept and well painted, though the colours are subdued compared to Tenby’s, and the best places to stay in Saundersfoot are, on the whole, a slightly less traditional bunch. Despite the fact that Tenby is the noisy one!

You can walk between the towns along the beautiful, and well signposted, Pembrokeshire coast path, and it’ll take you about an hour. There are some nice shops and some good places to eat and drink, but on the whole people are here to relax, and it’s a great place for a family bucket-and-spade holiday.

What not to Miss

  • Stroll the Pembrokeshire Coast path, to Tenby or further. There are plenty of other scenic walking trails around Saundersfoot too.
  • Get out onto the water and sail across to Caldey Island to meet the grey seals, seabirds and the local order of monks.
  • Explore the medieval centre of Tenby, which has the full compliment of cobbled streets, shops, galleries and boutiques, cafes, pubs and ice cream parlours, all constrained by the town’s Norman walls. Make time to visit St Mary’s Church too, this gracefully arched building was built in the 13th century and has some wonderful carved decorations, and a slightly frightening tomb topped with a cadaver.

The Best Places to Stay in Saundersfoot

  • St Brides Spa Hotel overlooks Saundersfoot Harbour, and its great Cliff Restaurant is known for serving up fish fresh off the boat. There are 34 rooms, with simple, neutral tones and modern furnishings. This is a great spot for exploring the coast.
  • If you’re looking for somewhere quiet and relatively secluded, then Stoney Bridge, a luxurious, four room B&B converted from a large house, might be perfect for you. There’s plenty of light and indulgent bathrooms - ideal if you’re planning a lot of walking.

Travel Information

  • Pembrokeshire doesn’t have a big airport, it has a small one, Haverfordwest, which has very limited connections. So, if you’re flying you’re better off coming in to Cardiff Airport. Pembrokeshire doesn’t even have a motorway, and is served in a rather limied capacity by rail, with lines running to Pembroke Dock, Milford Haven and Fishguard. Tenby is connected by local rail to Swansea, Cardiff and Pembroke Dock, and in the summer months there are a few services from London, Paddington. You might consider arriving by ferry to, into Fishguard or Pembroke.
  • If you’re thinking about hiring a car we recommend checking what our online partners, Rentalcars have to offer.
  • Most visitors come to Pembrokeshire for the summer, which is sunnier and warm-ish, with temperatures in July and August hitting 19 or 20°C most days.
