Hello and welcome back to #travelwithkids, a brand new linky brought to you by the lovely Jen at Smiles & Trials and myself. This linky is for anyone who enjoys family-friendly travelling from days out to road trips to city breaks.
We are very excited to find out about new places to visit all over the UK and beyond and aim to create a rich archive full of interesting finds. To join in, simply link up a post using the Inlinkz tool at the foot of this post; it doesn’t have to be a new post, it just has to fit the #travelwithkids theme.
It would be lovely if you used our #travelwithkids badge, which can be found below, but this is not essential. The linky will go live every Wednesday at midnight and run until 8pm on Sundays. We will leave comments on all posts as well as sharing on Twitter. Enjoy!
This week I want to tell you about a fantastic beach, less than ten minutes from where I live. It is called Freshwater East. It is signposted off the main coast road at Lamphey (between Tenby and Pembroke).
We go there most days to give Bella, our puppy, a run. Some beaches in the summer months ban dogs, but not this one. It is a wide beach, with a stream flowing into it as you join the sand.
Children love playing in this water, it is very shallow.
There are great sand dunes too, which shelter the beach, making it a little sun trap. (There was someone in a bikini on the beach yesterday!)
There are public toilets they’re a bit grotty, but most are) but no baby changing station.
There is a large car park, and separate Disabled Car Park. There is a charge to park, and the machines do not give change.
In the busiest times, there is an Ice Cream Van.
Although there is a Caravan Club site and holiday village here too, there is no cafe much to Mummy’s dismay!)
This is a great quieter beach, popular with doggie walkers and families too. It is big enough for everyone to enjoy, and well worth a visit.
