The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
A perfect holiday cottage destination, Pembrokeshire boasts superb beaches, stunning scenery, and a plethora of activities including family attractions like Oakwood Leisure Park and Folly Farm. Best of Wales have numerous holiday cottages in Pembrokeshire. Why not try a spot of dolphin or whale watching out of St Davids, or surfing at many of the areas fabulous surf beaches. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which includes over 621 miles (1000 km) of footpaths and bridleways, walking is an ideal way of exploring the beauty of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail is a spectacular 186 miles (299 km) long National Trail covering some of the most varied coastal scenery in Britain, stretching from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. Trails in the park offer over 200 circular walks, ranging from a one hour stroll to an invigorating 9 miles (15km) cross-country hikes.
Pembrokeshire has some of the very best surf beaches in Wales, with breaks for every level of surfer. With little interruption of South Westerly swells beaches like Newgale and Freshwater West pick up any swell going. In bigger storm swells travelling a little further to beaches like Abermawr or Freshwater East will help you find more sheltered breaks, often with great offshore conditions when other sites are blown out. Despite the number of excellent spots, there will usually be somewhere to surf that the crowds haven't reached, and even the most popular tourist beaches like Whitesands and Newgale only become busy during the summer months. There's a great atmosphere in Pembrokeshire, with a relaxed surf culture. If the swell doesn't arrive then there are lots of other activities to keep you outdoors!
Pembrokeshire is famous for its bass fishing and the inshore waters of Pembrokeshire also offer outstanding opportunities for sea anglers interested in a wide range of other species. The rivers Cleddau, Nevern, Taf and Teifi offer local and visiting game anglers the opportunity to catch wild brown trout, sea trout (known locally as 'sewin') and salmon, see Pembrokeshire rivers trust. Stillwater enthusiasts can enjoy a wealth of small stillwaters in superb settings, as well as boat or bank fishing on the reservoirs of Llys-y-Fran and Rosebush. Tranquillity and scenic beauty are just two of the factors that entice coarse fishers from far and near to make regular return visits to the stillwater coarse fisheries of Pembrokeshire. Quality and diversity of fish stocks and outstanding value for money are two more good reasons to visit the network of small stillwaters.
Bwthyn Clyd is a luxury holiday cottage located in the centre of the city of St Davids. This is however a city centre location unlike any other. Across the road from the cottage is the famous 12th century Cathedral and ruined Bishops Palace. It was reported that two pilgrimages to St Davids equalled one to Rome, and three pilgrimages equalled one to Jerusalem. These days St Davids has many restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops and is officially Britain's smallest city. It is a beautiful and unique city surrounded by some of the finest coastline in Europe. The city of St Davids lying on the River Alun and located on the St David's peninsula. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral St Davids is in reality a small beautiful village. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park St Davids is surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery renowned for its beauty and abundance of wildlife.
Whitesands Bay, one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, carries the prestigious European Blue Flag Award. St Davids Cathedral has been the dominant presence since the 12th century and was a popular pilgrimage destination throughout the Middle Ages and indeed remains so to this day attracting thousands of visitors every year. Adjacent to the cathedral stand the magnificent ruins of the medieval Bishops Palace. The city of St Davids has a great deal to offer visitor. Many people have fallen to the charm of St Davids including current New Zealand rugby Coach Graham Henry who lists St Davids as his favourite place in the World.
Solva lies only a few miles to the East and is known as the jewel of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and is situated on the beautiful West Wales coast. An ideal location for walking, sailing, fishing or simply relaxing amongst the shops, galleries and restaurants set in beautiful scenery. It lies on a deep ravine at the mouth of the River Solva, consisting of a long street ending at the small harbour. You will find several local pubs providing great food and atmosphere, there is also a local shop that includes a post office, news agent and many holiday items such as fishing tackle and beach items. From Solva harbour you can take a boat trip to view the local wildlife or even a fishing trip to catch some fresh fish for a nice BBQ. Quay jumping is a favourite past time of local children, as is crab fishing. Sailboat and water activity courses can also be booked from the quay.
Ramsey Island is well worth a visit during your stay. It is a dramatic off-shore island, a mile off Pembrokeshire’s coast. The island covers approx 600 acres and features 400ft high cliffs, which teem with breeding seabirds and is now owned Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Ramsey Island is accessible by a regular boat service from St Justinian’s, which crosses the spectacular Ramsey sound, with its infamous and treacherous reef, known as the Bitches. The island is home to several thousand seabirds in the season, including razor-bills, kittiwakes, fulmers, chough, guilliemot, raven, peregrine and puffin. The caves s and beaches around Ramsey are breeding grounds for the largest concentration of grey seals who give birth to over 400 white coated pups during the Autumn.
