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. 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
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.
