Tudor Merchant's House, National Trust Wales

Quay Hill, Tenby, Pembrokeshire SA70 7BX
phone: 01834 842279

   

The ruins of the 13th century town walls show that Tenby was a fortified town since Norman times.

This late 15th-century town house dates from a little later, when Tenby was a thriving trading port.

The National Trust has set out to re-create the Tudor period when the house would have been occupied by a merchant and his family. Many original bits remain, like the ground-floor chimney at the rear of the house. Also the original scarfed roof-trusses survive, and frescos from the house's early times can be seen on three of the walls.

Outside there is a small herb garden, as the Tudor family would have used

Open :2 April to 30 Sept: Mon. to Sat (except Wed) 10 to 5, Sun 1 to 5; 1 to 31 Oct: Mon., Tues., Thus & Fri 10 to 3, Sun 12 to 3
