9 days in Pembrokeshire

I'm planning a 9 day trip at the end of the summer to Wales (from London) and have decided on Pembrokeshire. Is that too long? Is there enough to do for 10 days or should I look into exploring nearby areas as well? Any suggestions welcome!

There is loads to do in Pembrokeshire, in fact 10 days doesn't give you any where like enough time to cover all it has to offer!

Have a look at this website for some ideas


If you want somewhere to stay then that is also a useful place to try, but the following website also offer excellent self catering accomodation :



Pembrokeshire is one of our favourite places to go on holiday in this country, I'm sure you will have a fantastic time.

Of course, it all depends upon your interests, but I believe there is plenty to do in Pembrokeshire to occupy your time.

As an example, last year we had a self-catered cottage for a week in North Pembrokeshire (Moylgrove) and found enough to do near there (and southern Ceredigion) such that we never got the chance to experience South Pembrokeshire. We're going to correct that gap this September with a week at a cottage in Broad Haven.

Using Moylgrove as a base, we explored (in no particular order) - Ceibwr Cove and that stretch of the P'shire coastal path, Cilgerran Castle, Newport Sands, Poppit Sands, the Welsh Wildlife Centre, Fishguard Bay, St. David's Peninsula (town, cathedral, bishop's palace, Whitesands Bay, Solva, St. David's Head), P'shire Sheepdogs, Museum of Welsh Woolen Industry, Pentre Ifan, Carn Menyn, Dinas Head, Henlly's Iron Age Fort, Tresaith, the National Coracle Centre, Llangrannog, Nevern, and New Quay. The weather was no good that day for a dolphin spotting trip and we also had no time for a boat trip to Ramsey Island. The rest of the time was spent just wandering any lanes or byways which looked "interesting". There were still places we never got to (like Cwm Gwaun and Carn Ingli).

Visit also included many, many pints of lager here and there (which probably cut down on exploration time!) By the way, Cardigan is a fine town for a visit, services, and miscellaneous stuff.

THIS year, as I've said, we're looking to enjoy South Pembrokeshire. From our cottage on the cliffs above Broad Haven, we hope to experience that stretch of the coastal path and St. Bride's Bay, Skomer Island, Marloes Sands, the Maritime Museum in Milford Haven, Pembroke, Carew, and Manorbier castles, Stackpole Head, St. Govan's Chapel, Barafundle Bay, Tenby, etc. etc. (List of possible sites of interest still being developed!) We're close enough to the rest of P'shire to revisit some of our other favorites - assuming there will be any time left over. And of course, the normal "let's see what's down that lane" or "up that trail" and "isn't it time to stop and enjoy a pint?" activities. I expect that Haverfordwest will replace Cardigan as a fine town for visiting and miscellaneous "stuff".

I don't think you'll be bored. And, even if you are, there's always Oakwood.

By the way, as an addition to Herefordshire's fine lodging suggestions, I can also recommend www.qualitycottages.co.uk . We have been very satisfied with their services up till now, and I expect September's cottage will be no different.

Enjoy your trip.
