The Pembrokeshire region

Pembrokeshire's attraction is its peace and tranquillity 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.

Newport is defined by its beach - the name in Welsh, Trefdraeth, simply means "Town on the Sands". Newport houses are now amongst the most expensive in West Wales, not simply because of the character of the town or the "golden" sands, but because it is such a complete holiday centre on a par with Tenby, Saundersfoot & St. Davids.

Newport has a diverse range of artist's studios & galleries, pubs, restaurants, small shops (including a bookshop and a candle shop) plus a Boat Club and a Golf Club, coupled with a wide range of excellent walks along the coastal path and up to Carn Ingli for the panoramic views. Perhaps now you can see why this little town has become as popular, not only as a place to live, but as an all-round holiday centre.

Traeth Mawr (big Beach) is a long stretch of sand, safe for bathing, windsurfing, body boarding and sailing. Newport Estuary is a haven for wild life and is a favourite among bird watchers. A walk from the Iron Bridge down the side of the estuary leads to the Parrog where there is a small beach, campsite Café Bar and Boat Club. During the summer months the Boat club organise various activities for children including sailing, crab lining and occasional BBQ's. On a summer evening the Parrog is a good place to watch the sunset.

Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain) Once a volcano (last erupted 450 million years ago) stands 350 m high above Newport. It is quite easy to climb but the summit is rocky. Once at the top there are fantastic views over Newport and north to the Llyn Peninsula. On a clear day Cadair Idris is visible on the horizon

The Gwaun Valley approximately 3 miles from Newport is a beautiful glacial valley which is wonderful for bird watching, walking and peace and quiet. The residents of the valley still celebrate the New Year on January 13th after the Julian calendar as they didn't accept the Gregorian calendar which we all now use. Step back in time and have a pint at the Dyffryn Arms (Bessie's) where the beer is still poured from the cask.

Dogmaels village lies on Pembrokeshire's northern county boundary, along the river Teifi just below Cardigan town. St Dogmaels is the most northerly access point on to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Coastal Path.

The Teifi River and St Dogmaels were very important particularly during the 18th and early 19 centuries as a fishing port. There are still a few commercial fishermen operating from the river but now the boats moored along this sheltered waterway are mostly leisure craft.

The Teifi estuary is well known as breeding ground for birds and wildlife and there is a Wildlife centre just a few miles further along the estuary which is accessed through the village of Cilgerran.

St Dogmaels boasts a selection of pubs one of the most popular being a traditional "Ferry Inn" where you can tie up alongside and enjoy the local catch of the day. Just a few metres further along there is a slipway for launching smaller pleasure craft. In the heart of the village is the ruined St Dogmaels Abbey next to the church, this was founded in 1113 as a Priory and later gained Abbey status. A heritage centre, tea room and it suite have been opened in the grounds of the Abbey this has been developed sympathetically to fit in grounds of the Abbey. St Dogmaels also boasts a working Corn mill, "Y Felin", this is found opposite the Abbey and may well have been built originally by the monks. The mill is one of only two water powered mills still in operation in Wales. Stone ground flour and other products are available for purchase at the mill.

There are a small selection of individual shops, pubs, restaurants, art galleries and other businesses in the Village, all helping to make this a popular and enjoyable holiday destination. The local beach of Poppit sands is extremely popular during the summer months, it is blue flag beach with a wide expanse of sand for children to enjoy, a lifeguard station, small summer cafe and ample parking.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal path (which is 186 miles) begins at St Dogmaels, and leads past the beach and on to Cemaes Head. A fantastic coastal bus service runs from Poppit sands south around the Pembrokeshire coastline, this means walkers can leave their cars, talk a walk along the coastal path as far as they like and catch the bus back to their starting point. The bus from St Dogmaels and Poppit sands is appropriately named the "Poppit Rocket" There are other coastal buses linking up and operating over different sections of the Pembrokeshire coastal path further south in the county.
