-- and I want to ask if there's anything a wargamer might be interested in around Tenby or westwards of there.
I'm not expecting there to be an amazing game shop, but a decent book shop or a nice iron age ruin to walk over would go down a treat!
It's a family holiday, so I'm not going to get too far away from the rented cottage. That said, my wife is amazingly tolerant and my dad, at 85, is up for anything that doesn't demand a lot of climbing.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Hay on Wye is purported to be a haevn for bookshops, but that info is close to 15 years old so may not still be the case. Might be too far away as well, being close on the border with England (might actually be across the border for all I know
Seems like it is in Wales after all – but perhaps still a bit too far

Remember to pack extra vowels. Do you have a phrase book? native guide and translator?

Bangorstu is in Wales so you could contact him for more currant info, that and a new Dad lives some where there.

I've not been in Wales in more than two decades – but the castles were amazingly fun to visit, as were the many bed and breakfasts we stayed in during the week we visited!

Tha map of castles is very useful – thank you Altfritz!
Hay on Wye is, indeed, in Wales – I've been there twice, but not in twenty years – but not in a 'just drop by' sort of way. If I could get there, I'd include a trip to the South Wales Borderers museum at Brecon.

I like to hide out in Wales when I play Kingmaker.

When my then-girlfriend-now-wife went to England, she asked: "can I bring you back anything?" and I said: "yes, a castle". She brought me a paper model of Caernarvon. First paper model I ever built

Wales = castles and amazing scenery. And rain

Well there is a dinosaur park in Tenby. May be handy for future Eat Hitler supplements? thedinosaurpark.co.uk

Bangorstu lives entirely the other end of the country – around 120 miles and 4 hours drive away.
We don't do north-south communication here in the Principality.
However, as luck would have it, I've just been to Pembrokeshire with Squeeze on a trip to Skomer.
So for a start can recommend the Griffin Pub in Dale
There is a walk around the Dale peninsula apparently which take a couple of hours and take sin a few old fortifications guarding Milford Haven.
But if you're after Iron Age stuff then I can recommend Castell Henllys.
It's one of those things that's worth seeing but not going to see if you catch my drift but is a reconstructed Iron Age settlement, built on the original foundations.
Wont take more than an hour to walk round, and the climb to it isn't too bad.
A little expensive for what it is, but not too bad.
Roderick – it's spelled 'Caernarfon' :) the 'v' is a Anglicisation
MJS – if coming any further north let me know, I can be more help then.
