The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
One third of Pembrokeshire falls within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This includes breathtaking views, hidden waterways, beaches with rockpools and surf and offshore islands with magnificent bird life and seals galore. This national park has been established since 1952. The 186 mile coastal footpath is the jewel in its crown, allowing walkers to cover the Pembrokeshire coastline completely.
Good days out include boat trips to offshore islands, Skomer and Ramsey and trips around Grassholm and Skolkolm. For those interested in birds they are in for a rare treat but they need to pick the right time of the year. There are a range of different beaches to enjoy, depending on choice, eg, surfing, swimming, castle building, rock pooling, or just relaxing.
Pembrokeshire is not only renowned for its beauty, it has an impressive history with iron age forts, medieval castles, historic villages and small towns. St Davids, a tiny city 16 miles from Swallow's Nest is so named from the Patron Saint of Wales who founded a monastery in the valley where the beautiful cathedral now stands.
During the summer months there are a number of shows and festivals around the county. The Music festivals in the county are St Davids (May), Fishguard (July) and Tenby and Milford Haven (both in September). The Torch theatre in Milford Haven presents a range of dramas and films throughout the year, although the programme is quieter in the summer.
Broad Haven (2 miles) is a popular beach for bathing, rockpooling, surfing and recreation, and has a range of places to eat, a convenient mini market and other services. Little Haven (2.4 miles)is a picturesque little cove with pubs, restaurants, a café, gift shop and a lot of charm. It is a popular spot for mackerel fishing and at low tide it is possible to walk along the beach to Broad Haven. Little Haven hosts an enjoyable week long holiday festival during the last week of May.
Swallows' Nest is located in the centre of the Dale peninsula, providing easy access, (maximum 16km) to other beautiful beaches and the embarking points to Skomer and Skolkolm Islands and a boat trip around Grassholm to see the Gannets and seals. Druidston Haven and St Brides are beautiful beaches about 6 km away. In early July, Puffins may be seen bringing food to their chicks. In the spring they may often be seen nest building. In the autumn, seal babies may be seen on the mainland beach at Marloes.
It is 7 km to the historic market town of Haverfordwest, which now hosts a farmer's market and other more modern services, including, supermarkets, shopping centres, large leisure centre, library and golf club.
It is 15km from the Cleddau bridge which takes you to South Pembrokeshire, with more beaches, castles and attractions, including for families, Oakwood theme park and Folly Farm.
