The West Wales/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. Within 1.5 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

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.

No more than 25 minutes drive to all the main attractions, beauty spots, castles, etc. of Pembrokeshire.



Newport has a bit of everything you could ever really want or need in a holiday destination. There is a diverse range of artist's studios, galleries, pubs, restaurants, individual shops and a Boat Club and Golf Club. Couple this with a wide range of excellent walks along the coastal path and up to Carn Ingli for the panoramic views and you can see why this little town has such appeal. Traeth Mawr is the big Beach and is a long stretch of sand, safe for bathing, windsurfing, body boarding and sailing. The Nevern Estuary is a haven for wild life and is a favourite among bird watchers. A walk from the Iron Bridge along the footpath to the side of the estuary leads to the Parrog where there is a small beach, Café Bar and Boat Club. During the summer months the Boat club organise various activities including sailing, crab lining and occasional BBQ's. On a summer evening the Parrog is a good place to watch the sunset or chat with the friendly locals. Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain) stands 350 m high above Newport. It is not difficult to climb and the summit is rocky. Once you have made it to the top there are fantastic views over Newport and the bay below and you can even see Ireland on a very clear day.
