Best base to visit south pembrokeshire without a car

Hello everyone. I am planning a vacation to Pembrokeshire in August. I am interested in taking busses to see and go on walks in the Marloes, Broadhaven, and Manorbier areas. I was wondering what is the most convenient location to stay if I want to visit those areas and am only taking busses. I only have a couple of days, so I might want to go on several walks in one day. I was thinking Tenby, but looking at the various bus routes, it seems that that would be not the most convenient place to stay for my purposes. Any information or opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Where are you starting out from? Trains into Pembrokeshire travel along the coastal route west of Swansea which then splits into three branch lines: one heads for Fishguard (North coast), one for Haverfordest (and Milford Haven) and the third meanders along the south coast to Tenby and Pembroke.

www.nationalrail.co.uk

You say you have looked at various bus routes but have you tried these sites:

www.pembrokeshiregreenways.co.uk (for coastal bus services)

www.visitpembrokeshire.com/daytripper (for the day tripper bus)

www.traveline-cymru.org.uk (travel planner for Wales - Cymru is "Wales" in the Welsh language)

You could always email the Tourist Information Centres for the town you wish to visit. For Tenby:

tenby.tic@pembrokeshire.gov.uk

A more general site for Pembrokeshire is www.visitpembrokeshire.com where you will find an online visitors book.

Are there any rent-a-cars in Tenby?

think most of the car hire companies are based in ,pembroke/pembroke dock/haverfordwest and kilgetty, however, if you are staying in Tenby, most of these companies will deliver the car to you in Tenby

The Europcar/National depot is less than 5 minutes drive(25 minutes walk maybe) from the megabus stop in the centre of Pembroke Dock, If you ask, I am sure they will pick you up from the bus station and take you to their depot for the car, or you can get a taxi to the car depot for a few pounds

I already checked "must see" things in Pembroke and on...but, do you know some hidden nice places to see or some nice old villages... :)

Anyway, thank you for your help.
