Places of Interest

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park came into being in 1952 and is the only coastal National Park in Britain. The Park is a land of enchantment at the western edge of Wales, internationally recognised as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For the walker, the Pembrokeshire coastal path is close at hand and for the birdwatcher, the nearby islands of Skomer and Skokholm are sanctuaries for breeding sea birds such as guillemots, razorbills, puffins and kittiwakes as well as colonies of seals.

The nearest beach is at Broad Haven, a 20-minute stroll through woodland, rich in bird life and wild flowers. For the less energetic, Broad Haven can be reached in less than 5 minutes by car. Here you can visit the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Information centre with general information on the area, as well as a selection of maps and books; in addition it offers a programme of field excursions and lectures.

Other beaches within this area of Pembrokeshire are Nolton, Druidstone, Little haven, Newgale and Marloes Sands, all excellent for sandcastles ! Little Haven is well worth a visit especially for the inns and restaurants. Fresh crabs, lobsters and mackerel can be bought here in the summer months.

Holiday Cottage in South Wales - Sunset over the sea

The old county town of Pembrokeshire, Haverfordwest, is ten minutes drive away with a selection of small shops, high street stores and a market hall.

A little further afield is St. Davids with its world famous 6th century Cathedral and Bishop's Palace and, slightly more recent marine aquarium, the largest in Pembrokshire.

Apart from 'seaside' attractions, there are fifteen castles in Pembrokeshire, about half of these being open to the public. Rural crafts are in abundance with woollen mills, pottery, woodcraft, slate, stone and iron works and cheese makers. There are also several farm parks in the area, most with indoor and outdoor facilities.

A wide variety of locally produced food, including organic, is readily available; the Pembrokeshire cheeses are especially good. Haverfordwest hosts not only one of the best farmer’s markets in Pembrokeshire but in the country.

For the more adventurous, you can catch the ferry from nearby Fishguard for a day trip to Ireland.
