Packed with gloriously contrasting sea-and-mountain landscapes (the sea laps at the shore on three sides of the county), Pembrokeshire also boasts a myriad of unusual places to stay.
If you’re a lover of the windswept coast, you’re definitely in luck here. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is the only coastal national park in Britain, covering 612 square kilometres that contain the stunning Preseli hills, and the wooded banks of the Daugleddau Estuary (complete with scenic, sheltered waters that are just begging to be explored by kayak or canoe!)
In the mood for a hearty stroll? The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a wondrous, 186-mile trail that will lead you through over 50 beaches, as well as some charming towns and villages – and the smallest city in Britain, otherwise known as St. Davids.
Bring your camera if you’re visiting this small-yet-perfectly-formed city, because its coastal scenery promises to take your breath away.
Away from the coast, Pembrokeshire has a long history of castle-building, with an eclectic selection studded across its rolling landscapes.
The majestic Pembroke Castle is the birthplace of Henry VII; these days boasting a full programme of family-friendly events, exhibitions, and activities. Cilgerran Castle, meanwhile, is set high on a wooded crag that overlooks the sparkling River Teifi (time to get that camera out again!)
More of a shop-til-you-drop kind of holidaymaker? Then head to the bustling market town of Narberth, the former capital of Pembrokeshire. You’ll find it heaving with independent shops and galleries, some excellent cafés, and plenty of the friendly, creative spirit that you’ll find infused within this one-of-a-kind county itself.
