Pembrokeshire – the Perfect Holiday Destination for 2018
As the chilly autumn nights draw in, summer can seem like a lifetime away but now is a great time to start planning next year’s holiday. With so many destinations to choose from, it can be hard to find somewhere that has everything you need for a fantastic break but we’re pretty sure we’ve got the perfect place for you. If you want sandy beaches, pristine waters, stunning scenery, exciting activities, rich history and amazing food, then look no further - come and discover the wonders of Pembrokeshire, a true Welsh treasure.
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
Britain’s only coastal National Park, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park has some of the most spectacular scenery in the world and is a fabulous place to get back to nature. The coastal sections boasts imposing cliffs, rocky coves, spectacular beaches, vast estuaries and wild, remote islands that are home to a huge variety of marine wildlife. Inland areas cover swathes of ancient woodland, peaceful river valleys, rolling hills and bleak moorland - perfect for those wanting to get away from it all. And last but not least, there’s the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, probably the most famous part of the National Park, which runs along 186 miles of breathtaking coastline.
If you like an adrenaline rush, there are lots of exhilarating activities on offer. Water sports are particularly popular so there’s plenty of opportunity try kayaking, surfing, sailing or coasteering if you’re brave enough! You can also take boat trips out to some of Pembrokeshire’s remote islands and indulge in a spot of dolphin watching as you head out across the waves. With hundreds of trails criss-crossing the landscape, Pembrokeshire is one of the best spots in the UK to enjoy a bike ride and from easy family routes to mountain climbs worthy of professional cyclists, there’s something for everyone. If you prefer four legs to two wheels, another great way to explore the countryside is on horseback – whether you prefer moorland treks or cantering through the surf, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better place to go riding.
Famously clean and stunningly beautiful, Pembrokeshire’s beaches are one of the main reasons visitors choose to holiday here. Rarely crowded, they range from broad stretches of golden sand to tiny coves nestled between towering cliffs and with over 50 beaches in total, there are plenty to explore. If you’re holidaying with your family, our lifeguarded beaches are a great place to paddle, build sandcastles, nose around in rock pools or enjoy a seaside picnic. If that’s not your cup of tea, many of the quieter stretches are perfect for a romantic stroll or walking the dog, particularly in the evening as the sun sets over a glittering sea.
Castles and Heritage
With a historic building or ancient standing stone around almost every corner, Pembrokeshire has a lot to offer history-lovers. From castles to churches, stately homes to prehistoric burial mounds, there are a huge number of fascinating places to discover. Venture up into the Preseli hills and wander around prehistoric stone circles, soak up the tranquil atmosphere of the magnificent St Davids cathedral or explore the turbulent past of some of our impressive castles. Many of our historic sites also host events and activities for all the family throughout the holiday season so there’s a lot to keep everyone amused!
