Holiday Cottages in Pembrokeshire. Pembrokeshire is at the south west tip of Wales with the sea on 3 sides of the county, and bordered by the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, and is a very popular destination for holiday-makers in the UK and from overseas. The coastline is renowned for its rugged cliffs, sandy beaches and colourful harbours and is considered very beautiful.
It is the UK’s only coastal National Park, and visitors are able to walk the entire stretch of the coastal path (or small parts of it!) as there is a 186 mile long coastal path right around the coastline. There is lots of wildlife to see on a visit to Pembrokeshire, including seabirds, wetland and estuary birdlife, and the famous Cardigan Bay dolphins which stay in the bay all year round.
There are also lots of sites of historic interest to visit – including the newly renovated Cardigan Castle, Pembroke Castle, and Carew Castle. In the area of the Preseli hills in north Pembrokeshire lie many pre-historic monuments including the burial chamber Pentre Ifan which is considered the finest of its kind in Wales, plus the source of the Bluestones which are known to have been used to construct the famous Stonehenge monument many miles away in England.
Many artisan crafts are made in West Wales, as well as some delightful farmers markets and local food producers, so there are lots of excellent places to eat out on local food, including of course the Cardigan Bay seafoods which are freshly caught and served locally.
There is lots for visiting families to do – including boat trips out to some of the islands such as Skomer and Caldey, dolphin watching trips, sandy beaches with safe swimming in the blue flag clean beaches, inland valleys to explore.
Tourism plays a very large part of the economy in Pembrokeshire so there are attractions to visit too, such as Folly Farm – with its petting zoo, conservation animal programme, many different animals to see, plus the vintage fairground rides and play grounds. Also Oakwood is very popular with lots of high adrenalin rides to go on.
