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

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.

As well as walking holidays, Pembrokeshire offers a vast range of outdoor activities for both the new comer and the expert.

Visited some lovely beaches and coastal walks all within a short drive . Sunday lunch at the Wolfe Inn is recommended plusand a visit to the Bishops Palace at St Davids .

From outside the front it looks rather unremarkable, but once through the door we were amazed and impressed by the spaciousness of every room, the massive amount of storage space, particularly in both the kitchen and the bedrooms. The layout and fittings in the kitchen, with the huge fridge and the island work-area, were to die for. Unfortunately the weather, which was fine for coast-path walking, was not sunny or warm enough for us to enjoy the garden, though we did manage evening drinks on the outside decking a couple of times. Altogether a memorable stay. The only hitch was that neither the owners nor the agents had given us the code for the key-box by the front door, which nonplussed us a bit on arrival, until the parent of one of the owners, who lives next door, spotted our difficulty and gave us the code!
