The theme for Becky’s April Squares challenge is ‘top’
- On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
- Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
- Room at the Top – first or highest in position
- Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
- Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!
This wonderful row of candy-coloured four storey Victorian townhouses (mainly holiday apartments, B&Bs or hotels) is situated at the beginning of the Esplanade above the rocky cliff and stairs that lead down to South Beach in Tenby, South Wales. What a commanding view they have of the monastic Island of Caldey and St Catherine’s Castle.
But be warned, this town gets extremely busy in the school holidays and parking is almost impossible to find. It’s the Welsh equivalent of St Ives, Cornwall and also boasts three fine beaches. Take a look for yourself by clicking the link above.

I have been up and down those steps in Tenby a few times. Steeper than they look here. My ex-wife had a bad time getting up them one hot afternoon, and stood halfway up for over 30 minutes!
Best wishes, Pete. x
I didn’t try going up them! But Tenby is rather nice and we were tempted to make it our home until we realised how shockingly bad the parking is.
We were staying in Fishguard, and went into Tenby a couple of times that week. I remember parking the car not far from those steps, which is why I went up and down them. But my wife said no to a third visit after almost expiring on the way up. 🙂
Sounds like the making of another of your short stories 😆
I wouldn’t embarrass her, Jude. We remained friends. 🙂
What glorious views . . .but not sure I could cope with the storms in winter nor the crowds in summer!
No. Though storm watching from one of those windows would be fun. The crowds in summer not so much.
That’s true. Yeah I hate the crowds, one of my bug bears when I lived in Brighton!
Seems we are drawn to the same sort of places. Beautiful, but quiet. Hard to find.
Very hard to find, specially these days with Instagram and easy travel 😦
This year might be the year to visit then. Crowds might not be so apparent, maybe?
I could easily live in one of those houses 😀
Yes, great views, and lovely buildings.
What year were you there, then? For me it was a lot of years before I met you 🙂 🙂
Christmas 2012 I think and again in 2014 or 15. We actually went to look at a barn conversion in Laugharne.
Aren’t they gorgeous! I would love to see inside.
You’ll have to book a room in one if you ever visit Wales.
Wouldn’t that be a treat.
There is a lovely looking hotel further along the row, I wouldn’t mind staying in.
Those are pretty! They make me think of Edinburgh rock.
The colours, yes! I used to like that stuff, but it would be far too sweet for me now 😊
I never did like it. I liked ordinary rock, the bright pink stuff, but that would be too sweet now too, and would probably pull my fillings out!
They are so pretty!
