Stay in Our Coastal Cottages in the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park

Stay in our Pembrokeshire coastal cottages and discover the magic of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, the scenery ranges from lush green gardens and mountains, to terrific blue waters.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park was first established in 1952, it covers an expanse of just over 260 square miles. There are 15 National Parks in the UK, but this is the only Coastal National Park and it is also the smallest National Park in the UK.

Did you know that nowhere in the National Park is more than 10 miles from the sea? At its widest point the park is 16km wide and its narrowest point only 100m wide.

The park covers almost all of the Pembrokeshire Coast, offshore islands, the Gwaun Valley and a large area of the Preseli Hills and is home to 22,500 residents.

Explore the Beaches

Pembrokeshire is home to 50 beaches and 39 of those are award-winning beaches. Eleven beaches have been awarded the blue flag: Amroth, Newgale, Poppit Sands, Lydstep, Saundersfoot, Dale, Whitesands, Coppet Hall, Tenby North, Tenby South and Tenby Castle. Not all of the beaches in Pembrokeshire are traditional sandy beaches, there are many lesser-known bays and coves to be explored. 


The park has many varied landscapes from beaches, cliffs, mountains, rivers, hills and lakes. The National Park Authority takes pride in caring for the park. As a result of this everything is well maintained. 

Best Way to Explore the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

The best way to experience the coastline is by walking along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. With 186 miles to explore, there is plenty of walking to be done. Take a look at the craggy coastline and deep turquoise waters like never before. 

If walking isn’t quite your speed, you can take part in a number of thrilling adventures. Explore the beaches by SUP and surfing, investigate the coastline by kayaking and coasteering or venture further out to sea on a speedboat. 

Need to relax after that? There are plenty of peaceful things to do in Pembrokeshire too. Including heading down to Cardigan Bay to do a spot of dolphin watching, the best place to see bottlenose dolphins in Europe. 

Or take a trip over to Penlan Uchaf Gardens, which has 3 acres of perfectly landscaped gardens. The gardens overlook the ever-impressive Preseli Hills, making for some spectacular views. Stroll through the garden and take a look at the lush green trees and flowering borders.

Interested in animals?

The park is home to some of the most incredible wildlife. Because of this, you can spot lots of wildlife. For Instance, look out for choughs and skylarks in the greenery on the untouched coastline. Try and spot dolphins, porpoise or the Atlantic grey seal with its pups. If you take a boat trip to Skomer Island you could be lucky enough to see the puffin, the best time to look for them is April-August.
