The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire's attraction is its peace and tranquility which has a hypnotic effect on visitors who return year after year, if not more frequently. The coastline and villages have changed very little over the centuries.
The superb sandy beaches and quiet coves, once the haunt of smugglers, are around every twist and turn of the coastal lanes. Both on the coast and in the Preseli hills there is a profusion of beautiful wild flowers, encouraged by the mild climate, high sunshine hours and influenced by the Gulf Stream. Pembrokeshire is a haven for nature lovers with foxes, badgers and birds too numerous to mention literally on your doorstep.
Lower Town, 'Y Cwm' in Welsh, is the old port of Fishguard. Situated at the mouth of the Gwaun river its picturesque setting has been used as a location for many films including 'Under Milk Wood' starring Richard Burton.Local fishermen and pleasure boats add to the attraction and there is a pub and yacht club. Go up the hill towards Newport and visit the site of the old fort for panoramic views of the harbour.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is easily reached from either the harbour or the fort. The picturesque Gwaun Valley is also situated just a few miles inland.
If rural and secluded Pembrokeshire is what you are looking for then Strumble Head is a good place to start. Picture narrow winding lanes traversing around rocky outcrops and ancient field structures intermingled with traditional Welsh Cottages and Farms and you'll be somewhere near. Then throw in sea views and stunning cliff top walks to complete the picture.
Continue West and you will pass Abermawr Beach before reaching Trefin and Porthgain - both extremely popular destinations during the summer. Next is the City of St David's - the smallest City in the UK
A visit to St David's could well result in you asking a fellow human just exactly where the city is (as it did when my brother in law and his family visited). The City has a population of no more than 2000 people but its main attraction is the Cathedral. Founded in AD 589 the Cathedral has been attracting Pilgrims to the area ever since. St David's is also a mecca to surfers who can be seen frequenting Whitesands Beach some 3 miles to the north west.
