Located in the far west of Wales, the county of Pembrokeshire is renowned for its superb coastline, attracting swimmers and beach goers with its idyllic stretches of beautiful sand, and walkers and nature enthusiasts to its miles of coastal paths and the Coast National Park with its abundance of wildlife. Inland the landscapes are practically tailored for outdoor adventurers, with the Preseli Hills offering wild moorland and heaths, and ‘The Golden Road’, a walk running across the spine of the county.
There are plenty of sites of historic interest from the prehistoric Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber, to the magnificent Norman Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, sitting on the mill pond which powers the mill. Other sites include Pembroke Castle, an enormous oval fort, and the unique St Govan Chapel, built into the cliff. Other activities to entertain the family include the Oakwood Theme Park which is home to the fabulous Megafobia Rollercoaster, and the Manor House Wildlife Park; an up-close-and-personal zoo experience! There are a vast number of lovely places to visit in Pembrokeshire; Newport (not the city!) is a picturesque village on the coast, and is a desirable holiday spot. Then there is the larger and bustling Victorian seaside town of Tenby, or St Davids, one of the smallest cities in the UK!
