Our guide to luxury Pembrokeshire holidays

Storybook seaside towns, lagoons, hikes galore, and a gastro-scene on the rise, is there any wonder so many visitors flock to the flaxen shores of south-west Wales? This is the Unique guide to luxury Pembrokeshire holidays.

Pembrokeshire is an outdoor playground for the young, and the young at heart: hidden coves, coastal trails, and ancient wooded valleys brimming with wildlife are just the start. It's a county steeped in Welsh history, where family sandcastle competitions are fuelled by salty chips and soft peaks of vanilla ice cream, and sunny afternoons pass by with binoculars in hand, pointing out whales and dolphins in the Irish Sea. Whether you’re seeking a stop-you-in-your- tracks waterside property or an off-the-beaten-track bothy in Wales’ backcountry, let our guide to luxury Pembrokeshire holidays lead the way on everything to see and do in Britain’s only coastal National Park.

Rally the troops and hop aboard a boat to Skomer Island, keeping your eyes peeled for seals and puffins at play in the fray, or feel the wind in your hair on a high-speed rib around Ramsay. Pembrokeshire is a hotspot for hiking, too; conquer sections of the 186-mile coast path, loop around Dinas Head for views from the peninsula to Snowdonia on a clear day, or master the art of the ling di long, a directionless wander, and let adventure lead the way. When rain stops play, there’s no shortage of biscuit-tin pretty towns and ancient sites to explore, including Carew Castle and St David’s Cathedral. One thing’s for sure: Pembrokeshire doesn’t do things by halves.
