Ironman Wales Tenby Pembrokeshire 2017
The greatest endurance event in the UK
One of my favourite elements is watching the athletes leave the water, make the short run back to the transition station in Tenby and collect their bikes ready for a gruelling cycle of some 112 miles around gruelling Pembrokeshire roads and hills.
There's certainly an electric atmosphere in Tenby on the day, with thousands of spectators. My family loves to head to the finish line just outside the Giltar Hotel on the Esplanade and listen to the crazy presenters really get the crowd rearing to go to cheer as loudly as they are able for the first through the finish line! with clackers, bangers and general screams of enthusiasm from young and old, it's something to savour, until the next 12 months, when it all comes around again.
There's lots of fabulous areas to watch all the action, but it's an idea to pick up the transfer bus and head over to Saundersfoot where "Heartbreak Hill" just outside the St Brides Hotel and Spa (take in a wine or two there or an afternoon tea even) is one of the most difficult elements of the cycle. Again the crowds go mad in supporting athletes along this tougher than tough section.
Nice friendly environment at noble park and the staff are brilliant! We will definitely be staying here next year!

Noble court suited us a little better due to the larger play park and evening entertainment. The swimming pool at the Croft was brilliant. Highly recommended both
Nice site, lovely location, very close to Folly Farm, convenient 15 minute drive to Oakwood and Bluestone, clean facilities (we seen the cleaners in every day), great little swimming pool, relaxed attitude, professional and very polite staff.
The staff were friendly professional and informative the site was clean and all facilities as described I'm going to visit the other 2 sites before deciding but it will definitely be Celtic for me next year
Safari Tent Review: "Staff are very welcoming. Lovely secluded spot with stunning views. Short drive to the beach and loads of beautiful sight seeing places"
