The West Wales / Pembrokeshire / Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire must surely be one of the most beautiful and varied counties in Britain and Haroldston Farmhouse is well placed to explore all of it. The coastline is rugged and imposing and is accessible along almost its whole length via the 187 mile long coastal path. This provides unforgettable walking holidays on what many believe is one of the World's premier long distance routes. In 2010, National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire as joint runner up in its top 20 of World's best coastal destinations! A quotation, from the Daily Telegraph, tells the story very eloquently: “Pembrokeshire is a nature lover's paradise, with miles of sandy beaches, like Cornwall, but without the people.”
Throughout the year but particularly during the season, the Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus Service runs a series of shuttles, collecting hikers from the end of their walks & returning them to their cars (or vice Versa). Alternatively, there are plenty of mapped out circular walks; see Pembrokeshire Coast, Walks in the Park.
There are numerous beautiful sandy beaches, many of which remain peaceful, even in high season. Marloes Sands is totally unspoilt and must be one of the loveliest anywhere, yet is only 12 miles from Haroldston.
The coast is dotted with havens of all kinds, from the picturesque little harbours at Solva and Porth Gain to the busy industrial ports at Milford Haven and Pembroke Dock.
Regular ferries to Ireland are available at Fishguard and Pembroke Dock. The crossing to Rosslare is inexpensive and takes only 4 hours, so aPicture of Puffin day trip is both practical and economical.
For those on a bird watching holiday, regular boat trips are available to Pembrokeshire’s island reserves, most notably, Skomer, Ramsey and Caldey. In the spring and early summer, the islands are worth a visit for the enchanting puffins alone.
The county also has the only coastal national park in the UK. For more information, please also see RSPB home page and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.Turning inland, the Preseli Hills contains a feast of beauty spots and wide vistas, from sweeping moorlands, to exquisite valleys; from mysterious forests to sparkling lakes. Even here, there is plenty for the historian. The stone circle, at Pentre Ifan, is constructed from the same locally quarried stone as is Stonehenge.
Driving in Pembrokeshire is a real pleasurable experience, particularly for those harassed commuters who are only too familiar with grid locked roads. Even in high season, traffic jams are rare and any minor queue disperses quickly.
Pembrokeshire is endowed with numerous and diverse things to do, which caters for all age groups, occasions and preferences.
The Haverfordwest area
Haverfordwest is a bustling market town, ideally situated at the centre of Pembrokeshire’s road network. This is a great location for holidaymakers because it means that all of the county’s main attractions are no more than a short drive away.
Its most attractive pedestrianised shopping centre, straddles the pretty Cleddau river, containing a range of local and national shops. Much of the precinct is under cover so is ideal for occupying a wet afternoon.
The retail park contains a number of large Riverside Shopping Centre, Haverfordwest national shops, such as Morrisons, Marks & Spencers, Boots, Currys, Comet, Next, Laura Ashley, Sports Direct, Wickes, Homebase, Pets At Home and Halfords. There is a Tesco Extra supermarket (24 hour) on the other side of town which is just a mile away from Haroldston. Aldi and Lidl are also represented in the town. A popular farmers’ market is held on Riverside, on alternate Fridays.
The town centre has several pubs, cafes and a thriving night club which cater for all tastes.
Haverfordwest CastleThe centre piece of Haverfordwest is the castle which was first established in the early 12th century. This is surrounded by quaint mediaeval streets, although most of the building facades date from a later era. The town, itself, celebrated its 900th anniversary in 2010.
For the fitness enthusiast, the town has a brand new, well equipped leisure centre, which is just 1 mile away from Haroldston. The centrHaverfordwest Leisure Centree has a large swimming pool, with a moveable floor, which enables the depth to be adjusted to suit differing events. There are also 2 associated children's 'beach' pools. The well equipped gym has a full range of state of the art equipment ideal for a vigorous workout or game of squash. The dance studios have a regular programme of classes, such as spin, body pump, step and pilates.

Stayed here for a weekend with my family, 6 adults and 7 children ages 1 to 10 years.
All had a fabulous time, the children loved playing hide and seek, both the adults and children alike enjoyed the games room.
Lovely comfy beds, hot showers, spotlessly clean and well equipped, highly recommended,
We will definitely return
Thank you very much for your smashing, upbeat and generous review. As always, it is really gratifying to know that our visitors have enjoyed our house and have not been disappointed. As you've suggested, we do hope that you will come again - you'll always be welcome!

Very clean, tidy farmhouse. Lots of space to spread out. Owners introduced themselves and then left us alone unless we needed them, which we didn't. Everything we needed was there and more. The house is up a very quiet lane outside of Haverfordwest. The only thing you can hear are the birds. Some of the family walked into Haverfordwest a couple of times and used the new Leisure Centre swimming pool etc which they said was excellent.
Thank you very much for taking the time to post generous and complimentary feedback and for pointing out some of the assets of Haroldston Farmhouse. We do try to maintain a 'sociability balance' inasmuch that some of our visitors like to chat, whilst others prefer to be left alone. We're pleased that we got it right in your case.
