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! 

South Wales

Although smaller in size than other regions of Wales, this area still has a great selection of historical sites to visit and rolling countryside with a dramatic coastline. Perhaps best known for the impressive Brecon Beacons, this mountain range is very popular for those seeking an activity holiday with something to suit all, from mountain biking and caving to horse riding and star gazing events. The Vale of Glamorgan is worth a visit, with a 9 mile heritage coastal path not to mention the famous Barry Island with its vibrant amusement park which is all only a few miles from Cardiff.

Not just an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Wye Valley and the Vale of Usk combined can also boast having the most castles per square mile in Britain. In recognition of its revolutionary importance the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape is now a World Heritage Site and has a fascinating collection of ironworks, mines and a national museum.

Cardiff is perfect for a day of shopping and sight-seeing. The varied choice of entertainment ranges from live music venues, guided tours and art events. For a peaceful walk or nature spotting trip then the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is a beautiful and isolated place to unwind.
