Local Area - What to See & Do

A quiet hamlet that lies at the centre of the beautiful St Brides Bay coastline, with undulating cliffs and sandy beaches, completely unspoilt but within easy reach of Haverfordwest, the "county town" and many nearby villages.

The whole coastline is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. An area of outstanding beauty with a wide variety of natural amenities available to the holidaymaker including the coast path (over 160 miles) that passes through the haven, an abundance of wildlife, sea birds, wild flowers and beaches safe for swimming, surfing, boating and fishing.

Within a short distance lie Newgale, well known for surf along three miles of golden sands, St Davids, the smallest cathedral in Great Britian; the coastal villages of Little Haven, Broad Haven and Solva with a particularly pretty natural harbour.

Interesting places to visit include the Preseli Hills, Cleddau Estuary, Woollen Mills, craft shops, potteries and a popular boat trip from Martins Haven to Skomer Island bird sanctuary. Visitors expecting the noise and crowns of the large resorts will be disappointed; the area relies upon its own natural beauty and appreciative holidaymakers return year after year.
