Due to the Gulf Stream, Pembrokeshire has a relatively temperate climate and has been attracting holidaymakers for decades that come to enjoy the endless miles of superb beaches. From dramatic cliffs teeming with birdlife to sleepy river inlets and charming towns and villages, it’s all in accessible from your very own Pembrokeshire holiday cottage.
You’ll discover a county bursting with spectacular scenery, walks and wildlife, food and drink and much more.
Choose from dozens of world-class beaches, some so secluded you may have one to yourself, even in high summer! Enjoy clifftop walks above the shores or take a tranquil stroll around the many secluded inland backwaters of the Cleddau rivers.
Pop into Tenby and enjoy the famous view of the brightly painted houses that surround the harbour, or explore the town with its winding streets and many tempting shops. Why not take a short boat ride from the harbour to Caldey Island and enjoy the kind of calm that seems to emanate from its Cistercian Abbey, not to mention the aroma of the unique perfumes made by the monks who live and work there.
Get up close to seals, seabirds or spot the occasional dolphin on one of many boat trips from the harbour. You can book fishing trips, whether you are a beginner or an old hand. With many Pembrokeshire cottages based in and around this busy part of the county, it’s no wonder so many visitors make it their base for exploring the region.
There’s a lot for youngsters in Pembrokeshire too, like the award-winning Folly Farm Adventure Park or fun for young and old at Ritec Valley Quad Bikes near Penally. Why not catch a wave and go surfing or wind-surfing from its western beaches like Newgale or Freshwater West. Another haven of calm is St David’s, where the magnificent historic Cathedral is not to be missed.
It’s a county of discovery, from coastal splendour to rural calm, with pretty villages, bustling towns and magnificent beaches. There’s a lot to do and many places to go, whether you choose to see it on foot, by cycle, car, bus or even by boat.
But don’t take our word for it. Seek out this fascinating region for yourself from one of our selection of holiday cottages in Pembrokeshire and discover a county that’s quite unlike any other, either in Wales or anywhere in the UK.
