Penally is a coastal village and community 1 mile south-west of Tenby in Pembrokeshire. The village is known for itsCeltic Cross, Penally Abbey (A Gothic style Country House) the neighbouring St Deiniol's Well and Penally Training Camp.
The local Parish Church is dedicated to St Nicholas and St Teilo. It was originally called St Nicholas' but was changed at the end of the 19th Century; it is suggested that Penally was the birth place of St Teilo, a Christian leader in the 6th Century. The church houses the Penally Celtic Cross which was originally located in the graveyard but has since been restored and moved into the church.
The village has two pubs - The Cross Inn and The Paddock, and also a small shop. Views overlook Tenby, Caldey Island, Giltar Point and Tenby Golf Course which runs alongside Tenby South Beach to the south of the Village. Waymarked public footpaths allow people to walk through the links to the beach and to Tenby. Another golf course lies inland, on the outskirts of the village, at Trefloyne.
The village is served by Penally Railway Station and bus services 349 and 380 (Tenby Town Circular Service)
At the far end of Tenby South Beach is Penally Beach. It's more of an extension of South Beach than a separate bay, but it does have a completely different character. This part of the beach isn't visited very much. A sand and shingle beach, backed by dunes and protected from the wind by the headland of Giltar Point. Walk across the dunes from Penally Station to get there, although this path can be closed as it crosses a rifle range.
The current Village Hall has been in use since 1984 and replaced a Nissan hut. In recent years additions have been made such as kitchen improvements with crockery and cutlery for upto 100 people, disabled access and audio visual equipment. There is also an outside gazebo available for hire. Please contact Mrs J D'Arcy on 01834 844169 for further information
