Local Attractions in and around Pembrokeshire
Pembrokeshire can lay claim to being one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom and is a great place for family holidays and activity based short breaks. It is a county in south west Wales bordered by the sea on three sides. Its natural beauty, historic castles and abbeys, stunning coastline and beaches, national park, quaint towns, and cottage industries all help to make it a haven for tourists.
We are an ideally located Pembrokeshire Bed and Breakfast with most of the listed local attractions within a short driving distance from our Inn. If transportation is a problem, we will always endeavour to assist our guests in being able to visit them during their stay with us. Local buses can also be caught from outside of our Bed and Breakfast.
Just some three miles from us are a host of well know attractions, these include Newport Sands, Pentre Ifan and the Preseli Hills.
Newport Sands is a very popular beach with about a mile of flat sand. It is backed by a large dune and also an 18 hole Golf Links. The beach has a safe swimming area during the summer months courtsey of The Newport Pembs life guards. Part of the much larger Newport Bay, the beach has picutesque views of Dinas Head, Morfa Head and if you look to the south, Newport Town and Carningli Mountain.
Just beyond Carningli Mountain lays Pentre Ifan, the most famous neolithic burial dolmen in Wales. This feature has dominated the landscape here for thousands of years. If your feeling adventurous, its only about an hour’s walk through some lovely winding Welsh lanes from our Inn.
The backdrop to Pentre Ifan is pretty spectacular (even if we do say so ourselves) – the Preseli Hills stretching the whole length of the southern horizon and a view of north Pembrokeshire second only to being on the summit of Carningli to the west of you. The Preseli’s are a favourite haunt of many walkers and recently a group of paragliders have also been using these hills as an take off point.
There are many cairns, standing stones and circles upon these hills and at one point along the ridge a compass will spin endlessly. They are also the hills from which the famous bluestones at Stonehenge were taken from.
