Wales 5 days ex Cardiff
Explore the ruggedly beautiful coastline of Pembrokshire Coast National Park in 5 action packed days.
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, established in 1952, is the UK's only coastal National Park taking in 180 miles of the
Pembrokeshire coastline as well as all of it's offshore islands. If you stand on top of the ancient Preseli Hills, source of the "bluestones" of
Stonehenge, you will see spread about you one of Britain's most beautiful and magical landscapes. The north Pembrokeshire peninsular
thrusts out into the Atlantic Ocean, at the southern end of the Irish Sea, an area thankfully left unspoilt by the ravages of industrial society.
The ancient iron-age field enclosures are still remaining, as are the neolithic burial chambers and the bronze-age standing stones.
Hedge-rows covered with wildflowers and supporting a rich and diverse wildlife criss-cross the area. A Pilgrim's route, which leads to St.
Davids cathedral, drops down from the hills and here you can enter the hidden Gwaun Valley, thick with ancient oak woodland, and maybe
pause for a jug of beer, noted for its unusual properties, in Bessie's pub. This part of the coastline is renowned for its seal colonies, and
habitats along the high cliffs where razorbills and guillemots, the rare chough and beautiful peregrine falcon breed. On a lucky day you could
even see porpoise and dolphin swimming close in-shore in the clean waters.
Whether it's myth and magic, culture and history, wildlife and natural world, or adventure and party that you're after- the North Pembrokeshire
coastline has it all. We hope that you enjoy exploring it with us!

caravan parks, and no other people; just beautiful, clean, unsullied wilderness,
brimming with seals, sea birds, idyllic coves, sandy beaches and rocky

down to St Davids Head and the off shore islands, scale our nearest hills for
unforgettable views from the iron age hill fort of Garn Fawr, and access perfect
