The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park was recently voted the second best coastal destination in the world by National Geographic.
It has the most stunning beaches, many of them blue flag and offshore islands to visit including Skomer, Skokholm, Caldey and Ramsey
Water sports are in abundance- wind surfing, kayaking, coasteering, sailing. Close by is Dale where there are training courses in all coastal sports for adults and children
It is a true coastal gem with over 180 miles of coastal cliff path.
Whatever the time of year, Pembrokeshire has something to offer. In Spring and Summer the lanes and paths are ablaze with wild flowers. Paddle in the sea, try your hand at windsurfing, go crabbing in the rock pools. In mid Winter, walk the beaches in solitude with just the crashing of the waves and the calls of the sea birds for company. Return to The Old Cowshed to a roaring log fire and a hot bath.
Pembrokeshire also boasts the wonderful Presceli Mountains from where the stones for Stonehenge are belived to have been hewn and the tranquil very beautiful Gwuan Valley, an ancient valley home to streams, fauna and woodland.
It is home to the most stunning beaches. Close by is Marloes Sands where Snowwhite and the Huntsman was recently filmed. Also near is West Dale, St Brides, Little Haven, Broadhaven, Druidstone and Newgale
Skomer Island home to a vast puffin and manx shearwater population is also close by with the embarkation point only ten minutes drive away at Martins Haven
Little Haven with its bustling pubs and restaurants (in Summer!) is equally close as is Dale a centre for watersports including windsurfing and Kayaking.
A visit to St Davids - the smallest (and prettiest!) city in the UK is a must with its magnificent Cathedral and Bishops Palace.
Pembrokeshire offers something whatever the season.

"Lovely conversion set in perfect location for visiting area"
We stayed here 2nd week in July with our 4year old son. It was a perfect setting for us for break away. Accommodation is truly 1st class with 2 ensuite twins and a master with ensuite with views over the nearby fields, peaceful and bliss. It is also in a good position for exploring Pembrokeshire. We visited Tenby, Pembroke Castle and for my son Folly Farm and Oakwood theme park all within a reasonable drive away. Marloes beach nearby is a must and spent a lovely day there. Would most certainly recommend this accommodation.
