St Catherine,s Island. “Ynys Catrin”.
A small tidal island which is linked
to Tenby South Beach.

It has four bedrooms, a Banquet

but rich in character and history.

Caldey Island.Tenby

 A short boat trip from Tenby Harbour
takes you to the secluded,beautiful and
fascinating island of Caldey.
Caldey has been inhabited since the
stone age and home to various orders
of monks since celtic times, it is now
home to monks of the Cistercian
order.The Monastery overlooks
the island green,with picnic areas,
tearooms, Museum and a gift shop,
where there are Perfumes, chocolate
and shortbread for sale, all are handmade on the island by the Cistercian Monks.It is well worth a short walk up the lane to chapel point to the lighthousewhere you can view the many seals that visit the island bays.The panoramic views of the Pembrokeshire Coast, the Gower Penninsula and Lundy island all are breathtaking.The cliff path continues around the island to Redberry Bay and back through the farmyard to the old Priory,where there is also a lovely woodland walk, or maybe you would prefere to relax on one of the secluded beaches around Priory Bay.
If you are less able or prefere not to visit the island there is a Caldey Island shop in Tenby town, where a selection of gifts and handmade items from Caldey Island may be purchased, so there,s plenty of souvenirs for you to take back home with you.
