Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Satisfies the Yearnings of Nature Lovers:
The combination of peaceful countryside and blissful views may be so relaxing and intoxicating to you after escaping the rat race of the city that you won't be blamed for deciding to leave the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park far later than you'd planned. The National Park is on your doorstep when you’re staying in one of our Narberth holiday cottages and offers miles of changing landscapes, and apart from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and sandy beaches, there are marshes, forests, hills and several estuaries, and of course this conserved and unspoiled area is a sanctuary and paradise for some species that have all but disappeared in other parts of the UK. Whatever fitness level you find yourself at, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park offers walkers more than 200 circular walks as well as gentle strolls and access for wheelchairs so nobody can make any excuses.
A Richly Diverse Region:
With so much beauty to explore, it is not surprising that the Pembrokeshire Coast Path; one of Britain's leading National Trails, is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers who reckon that this path is certainly one of the most picturesque. The path has also been rated by Lonely Planet travel guides as among the top ten leading walks in the world. Nature lovers will be enthralled with the displays of coastal flowers and the fascinating bird life as the path twists and turns, providing the walker with endless surprises of what's coming up next. The highest point of the coast path is Pen yr Afr at 574 feet and the lowest point is Sandy Haven crossing at just 6 feet above low water.
A Magical Place even for Couch Potatoes:
Couch potatoes needn't despair, because even though the coastal path is 186 miles long, from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south, most of which is at cliff-top level, it doesn't mean you have to walk the entire trail. Nothing about the path is overly taxing and kids and the elderly can take in just as much as they can handle. What make the Pembrokeshire Coast Path so special is that throughout the year there is a Coastal Bus Service dedicated to walkers, and you can walk at your own pace. Operating on a 'hail and ride' basis in rural areas, you can board or get off any point you wish. To save you having to fork out each time you get on the bus, the West Wales Rover Ticket allows you all-day travel.
An Insight into Bygone Times:
The beauty of the coastal path is that it isn't entirely about nature, and this is because along the route there are some quaint towns and villages that are well worth a visit. These villages, some of which are Tenby and Newport among others, provide everyone with the chance to pop into shops and restaurants and see how the villagers live. Not only that, the trail also takes you past areas where there is evidence of ancient human habitations, and along the path walkers will get to see ancient forts, castles and churches dating back to the 17th century. Throughout the length of the trail you will also see reminders of Pembrokeshire's once prosperous anthracite coalfields which were at their peak in the 1850s.
There's Plenty to Amuse Everyone:
Some people opt to do only one section of the coastal path, and they book themselves a getaway which includes a walking holiday with a tailor made adventure to see other attractions in and around Pembrokeshire. The Travel Agency arranges everything, from quality accommodation to arranging best prices. For starters the younger generation will be enthralled with Oakwood Theme Park which in fact provides scintillating entertainment for the entire family. With rides including the likes of Speed, Drenched and Vertigo, a visit to this splendid park with the brilliant Megafobia roller coaster may well have you reaching for your heart pills.
You Never Call it a Day in Pembrokeshire:
With so much being offered, you can never call it a day in Pembrokeshire. An exciting boat trip from Tenby Harbour will take you to the beautiful Caldey Island and a walk to the lighthouse where you will be rewarded with wonderful views of the Gower Peninsula, the Pembrokeshire Coast and Tenby. Well worth a visit, the Cistercian monks of Caldey with their attractive monastery will welcome you to the island where they still continue with this ancient Celtic tradition. You can spend some fascinating time exploring some of the medieval churches of St David or you may actually want to attend a short chanted service in the Abbey Church where the monks pray each day. It’s your chance now to also spare a thought for family and friends back home to buy a few gifts like chocolate and shortbread which are made on the island. While in one of our Narberth holiday, a visit to the enormous stone Carew Castle and Tidal Mill is a must. The spectacular castle is found next to a mill pond. The castle has had an illustrious past and there are plenty of stairways and rooms to explore the fact that it is known as a haunted castle doesn't put anyone off, and today there are guided tours, a gift shop and pub and cafe close by.
