Every year me and a few of my old uni friends go on a little weekend away to one of our parents caravan down in Saundersfoot on the Pembrokeshire Coast. It is a nice chance to have a catch up, as we all live in different parts of the country now, and just relax from all our days jobs. We always take a day trip to one of the local attractions, in the past it has been Folly Farm or Manor House Wildlife Park, but this year we decided on Carew Castle, as it is something a bit different.
It is quite a beautiful 2000 year old castle ruin, right next to a 23 acre millpond. It is great for a family day out, and your ticket to Carew Castle will also get you into the Tidal Mill a little further around the pond.
My favourite thing about Carew Castle is probably all the old windows. I loved that some still had the original stone window frames in them, but that nature had taken hold of them by growing through the gaps and the ivy trailed around the edges.
After Carew Castle we took a little trip down to Tenby to get a bit of food and have a nose in the shops, here are just a few snaps of the beach, which is beautiful, and was surprisingly very quiet! Tenby is so lovely with all the multicoloured buildings and the wide open beach, another great place for family outings.
