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.

Had a great stay at the begining of May.The apartment was great: clean, warm, comfortable, well equipped (we never thought I wish there was a ......) and the view from the lounge window was worth every one of the 48 steps to get there! The view from the bedroom was also great, looking on to the town walls and to green hills beyond. Darrell gave us a warm welcome, making us feel at home straight away, and explaind how everything worked and advised on some walks - there was also lots of local information available in the apartment. It was well appointed, sun in the morning in the lounge and later in the bedroom. Close to either Tesco or Sainsburys and the Farm shop for provisons, places to eat out, local buses and the train station and of course the harbour. The east wind prevented us visiting Caldey island until our last day, but it was perhaps the highlight of our stay, so peaceful and everywhere was beautifully maintained, lovely walks around the perimeter with great views to the mainland, bluebell woods, lots of other wild flowers, interesting birds, and the notice on the door to the old priory said it all Please don't close the door - swallows nesting. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.

Great views of Fishguard Bay from the cottage and from the amazing terraced garden. Fantastic shower room great kitchen. We do a lot of our own cooking whilst away as we are both Vegetarian and one of us is a Coeliac so a good kitchen is paramount and this one did not disappoint. You can easily cover the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from Solva to St Dogmaels using the local link bus routes and Coastal Shuttles. The garden is brilliant. Terraced on five or so levels with seating at various points on the ascent. If you are into Bats then go sit at the top of the garden around dusk and you will see squadrons of the little blighters :) I have a high frequency Bat Detector that picks up the echo location signals of the hunting Bats and I had some of the greatest results that I have ever had. Many thanks to James for renting to us. We were left to ourselves but knew that if there were any problems James would be around to sort things out. Great cottage,great facilities, great garden and great views all helping to make our holiday a memorable one. Thanks again James :)
