6 of the Best Reasons to Visit Pembrokeshire
We’re pretty sure the list of reasons to visit Pembrokeshire is endless, but we had to whittle it down to fit it on our blog page! So, here's why it’s our favourite place on the planet and why you should come and join us for the perfect Pembrokeshire getaway.
- Beautiful coastline
The location of Britain’s only mainly coastal National Park, Pembrokeshire has few rivals when it comes to amazing beaches and stunning cliff top views. We’ve got pretty much every kind of beach you could want, from quiet hidden coves to vast, sweeping sands. With famously clean coastal waters, fresh sea air and lovely walks, it’s the perfect place for a peaceful seaside holiday. And if you’re an avid walker, you’ll love exploring the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path that runs along the entire 186 miles coastline.
- Amazing food
The heady combination of fresh, top-quality ingredients and some of the most creative chefs in Wales make our county a serious contender on the food scene. Whether it’s beautiful fish and seafood straight from the boat or great local farm produce, we’ve got the recipe for a heavenly foodie holiday. There are also plenty of food festivals and farmers markets to explore. You’ll find some of the finest restaurants and pubs in West Wales here too. Our Sea View restaurant is no exception, using local, seasonal ingredients to showcase the very best of Pembrokeshire cuisine.
- Rich history
You want castles? We’ve got castles! Favourites include the beautifully situated Manorbier and Carew as well as the hugely popular Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII. The wild Pembrokeshire landscape is also dotted with fascinating ancient sites, like the Neolithic burial chambers at Pentre Ifan and Carreg Samson, and the mystical standing stones of Gors Fawr and Bedd Arthur. And just a few minutes’ walk from our hotel lie the stunning St David’s Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace, two of the most historically important sites in Wales.
- Action and adventure
If you love outdoor adventures, Pembrokeshire is the place to visit! For those who love the sea, we’ve got just about every water sport there is, from kayaking and surfing to sailing and (if you’re feeling brave) the adrenaline-fuelled local sport of coasteering. If the countryside takes your fancy, our pretty valleys and windswept hills are the perfect place to go cycling, mountain biking, hiking, horse riding or paragliding. So, pack your sports gear and come exploring!
- Family fun
Sometimes it takes a bit more than castles and beaches to keep the kids entertained on a family holiday. But in Pembrokeshire, you’re never very far from family-friendly destinations that cater for kids of all ages. If you love a rollercoaster, take a trip to Oakwood Theme Park. For an animal adventure, try a day out at Folly Farm, Manor Park or the nearby Dr Beynon’s Bug Farm. Add popular spots like Bluestone indoor pool, Heatherton and Tenby Dinosaur Park to the mix and you’ll never be bored.
- Arts and culture
Pembrokeshire’s lovely scenery, wild coast and dramatic skies have attracted artists for centuries. It’s a great holiday destination for art enthusiasts, artists and photographers. On your travels you’ll discover lots of quirky local art galleries, potteries and shops selling local arts and crafts. And nearby Oriel y Parc showcases the work of some of Wales most famous artists. Music festivals also feature heavily on the Pembrokeshire calendar, including the St Davids Cathedral Festival, Fishguard’s Aberjazz and Folk Festivals. If you love a bit of culture, we’ve got it sorted.
