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.

Perfect place to get away, relax and unwind

5 of 5
Lovely relaxing week at The Boathouse. Comfy beds, hot powerful shower, great open plan living/dining/kitchen area and very clean. Welcome pack was a nice touch. Home from home. Great location close to the beautiful sandy beach which wasn't too busy in July so able to play rounders with the kids. Location good for trips out, we loved exploring Pembroke Castle. Thank you

Comfortable and spacious cottage a short walk from the coast path

5 of 5
The cottage was warm, cosy, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The interior pictures do not do it justice, especially the kitchen. The raised decking was good but the garden could do with some love and attention to bring it up to the standard of the house. The pub just down the road was a bit stuck in the 80s but was handy and very popular with the locals. With just a few hundred yards to join the coast path and with a small rocky beach, it was great for walking. Trefin is a nice, quiet village with very little through traffic.
