Visiting Wales had been top of our list for quite a while, and we hunted for a family-friendly base whilst exploring Pembrokeshire.
And what a little gem we discovered.
Just a few miles from Tenby and a cracking list of attractions close by, we couldnâ€™t wait to explore.
Little Kings Holiday Park
Little Kings is a small family run campsite, with standards that are high.
When I booked I asked for a pitch suited to families and we weren’t disappointed. Our location was great; close to the play park, green spaces to explore, safe for kids to play. We could all relax!
Little Kings is immaculately maintained by the super friendly staff, and some of the pitches have stunning sea views.
The facilities uphold Little King’s high standards; lots of clean showers, hot water and three large family bathrooms. Tick.
We especially enjoyed the seaside themed indoor swimming pool, free for guests, and open every day of theÂ season. The pool is bright, clean and it’s warm; perfect for dodging a spot of rain.
The outdoor play area received a lot of attention from our kids. It’s right in the middle of the grass field where our caravan was pitched, perfect for keeping an eye on them. And we spent a few rainy evenings in the attractive indoor play area/games room. With seaside themed play equipment and amusements, plus a 2p slot machine (always a favourite) to entertain the kids.
Food is a biggie on our â€˜things that make a place specialâ€™ list, and the on-site Tavern is another gem. We succumbed to its charms a couple of evenings, enjoying traditional home cooked food and fine local ales, whilst the kids got stuck into the seaside themed play facilities.
The shop – it’s well stocked and full of handy stuff, perfect for when you realise you forgot to pack the washing up liquid.
Things to do in Pembrokeshire
Wow, where to start. Pembrokeshire is stunning and there is a lot toÂ discover. Here are a few highlights from our trip.
The iconic harbour town of Tenby is, more than likely, the most well known coastal town in Wales. Itâ€™s quaint and charming, and itâ€™s easy to see why people fall in love with it, we have.
Tenby sits high on a hill with three amazing beaches stretching to the north, west, and south of the town. Itâ€™s hard to choose a favourite, but we threw down our towels on doggie-friendly South Beach.
We joined the throngs of visitors and wandered the narrow cobbled streets, peeked in gift shops, relaxed in cafes and explored the delightful harbour where we spent an hour with our crab lines.
Tenby is a dream destination. Its charm will capture get hold and youâ€™ll want to come back, again and again.
Our children love getting up close to live animals and who doesnâ€™t love milking a cow â€“ even if itâ€™s a model one. Here at Folly Farm there is a perfect mix of family fun activities with a farmyard theme. Our kids found the play facilities loads of fun, and the fairground rides, which are both inside and outside are great if it looks like rain might spoil your play.

Freshwater West & Freshwater East
These beautiful beaches are well worth a visit, we spent a sunny beach day at both. We talk about how beautiful they are on our post â€˜Top ten dog-friendly beachesâ€™.
Why so special?
Little Kings is an absolute gem and we wholeheartedly recommend it.Â There’s a really good feeling about the place.
It’s perfect for adventures and safe play, itâ€™s relaxed and peaceful, and families are very much in mind.Â Without a doubt, we will return.
And Pembrokeshire, there are still so many places to visit, we hope to see you soon.
