Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire, situated on the southern coast of Wales, is known for its dramatic sea cliffs, rolling hills, and picture-perfect towns. Steeped in myth and legend, the coast has inspired artists and poets for centuries.

When to go:
All Year Round

With 14 national reserves, including the entire coastline, Pembrokeshire plays host to a wealth of wildlife. You can expect to see puffins, seals, whales, and dolphins along the shore. Further inland you will encounter owls, bats, and wild ponies in addition to traditional British wild animals such as badgers, foxes, and one of the world’s largest Manx shearwater breeding colonies

Over the course of one week, you can abseil and climb along with craggy cliff faces and abandoned mines, paraglide over mountains, surf, and kite along white sandy beaches. You can fish for mackerel and meet monks in centuries-old monasteries before stargazing in a dark sky zone and exploring the forests in search of nocturnal wildlife.

Tailored to suit, your guides will kit you up and take you scrambling, climbing, and traversing your way along the rocky shore and sunken slate mine. Try cliff jumping from zero to 35ft jumps and playing in water features made famous by the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in the Blue Lagoon.

Spend an afternoon with a local artist and explore the historic city of St Davids, discover the medieval iconography that is scattered throughout the UK’s smallest city, and finally head into the artists’ studio to create your own stained-glass plaques. Once fired and finished, these will be delivered to you at home, a lasting reminder of your time in Pembrokeshire.

The Preseli Mountains, or Preseli Hills, whichever you prefer, rise out of the landscape to 536m in the northern half of Pembrokeshire and are in complete contrast to the relative lowlands of the south. The landscape is wild moorland, heath, and grassland and is home to a wide range of plants and invertebrates some of them quite rare.

It wouldn’t be a trip to Pembrokeshire without taking the time to surf some of the best and most consistent waves in Wales. Pembrokeshire has over 50 beaches with plenty of beginner-friendly beach breaks, and with most of the coastline being a National Park it also has some of the most picturesque locations and cleanest waters in Britain.
