Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in Pembrokeshire, Wales your home away from home

Pembrokeshire, the westernmost county of Wales is surrounded on three sides by water, and as such is highly influenced by the sea throughout. Pembrokeshire is often cited as the finest coastal area in Europe, with Pembrokeshire cottages being filled by artists and outdoor sport enthusiasts. Nowhere in Pembrokeshire is more than 15 miles from the coast, meaning that which ever holiday house or cottage in Pembrokeshire you take the coastal path, fishing and links golf courses are never far away.

Things to do in Pembrokeshire, Wales

Pembrokeshire tourist information centres are filled to the rafters with activity options, and you will certainly never be short of entertainment during your stay in a Pembrokeshire holiday cottage. Walking holidays on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path are unrivalled in the UK, as Britain’s only coastal park, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park has protected this stunning coastline and all the wildlife which calls the Pembrokeshire coast home. Cycle paths cross the park, as well as bridle paths helping cycling and riding holidays to thrive from Pembrokeshire accommodation.

As well as walking holidays, Pembrokeshire offers a vast range of outdoor activities for both the new comer and the expert. Throughout the year, Pembrokeshire coastal cottages are snapped up by those wishing to surf the large swells which strike the coastline at Newgale, Whitesands or Freshwater West, and those wanting to try sailing, kite-surfing, windsurfing, scuba diving and kayaking in the more sheltered bays like Milford Haven. In each of these main water sport destinations you can find water sport schools and instructors, so do not worry if you arrive in your self catering Pembrokeshire holiday cottage without any experience, as you can learn and enjoy water sports here with little prior notice.

Fishing is a major attraction in Pembrokeshire.

If you are travelling with a young family, the Pembrokeshire tourism options are in no way limited.

James was fantastic at answering our questions and had brilliant local knowledge - thank you! The neighbours were friendly which was an added bonus. Myself, partner, 3 children and our pooch had a wonderful week here. Lovely and quiet but near all local amenities. Perfect location to visit the surrounding areas of West Wales. We cannot wait to return :)

The conservatory is a plus so that even in inclement weather you can feel connected with the lovely scenery. We appreciated the owners being there to greet us on arrival and being on hand for any queries. They kindly left us milk and tea bags as well as Welsh Cakes so we could settle in with a cuppa after our journey. Also great that essentials such as soap, loo rolls, dishwasher tablets etc were provided. Thanks we had a lovely stay.
