When visiting southwest Wales you will find plenty of things to see and do to keep you entertained; that is if you want to leave your Welsh cottage at all.
Let's take a look at some of the great things you could do when staying in our Wales cottages:
Tenby is a popular family beach town, which lies along the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline. The town's biggest draw is the beach but there are a number of other great attractions including Tenby Castle and the nearby Island of Caldey. Caldey Island is home to Cistercian Monks who farm the island and produce its most famous products, perfume and chocolate. Here are our cottages in Tenby.
The Gower Peninsula, near Swansea, was the very first area of the country to be granted an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status, after a trip here; it will be easy to see why. The peninsula not only offers some stunning views but is also a wonderful habitat for a variety of wildlife and is also home to some fascinating historical landmarks.
The Pembrokeshire coastline is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere within the British Isles. This stretch of Welsh coastline has been deemed so important it was given National Park status in order to protect and preserve this beautiful landscape for generations to come.
The National Botanic Gardens of Wales plays host to some of the most beautiful and fascinating plants in the world. Plants are not the only thing the Botanic gardens have played home to, recently a rather special guest and his big blue police box have spent a lot of time here when the recent Doctor Who special ‘The Waters of Mars' was partly filmed at the gardens.
Taking a stroll around the city of St David's might not take very long but it will be well worth it. The highlight of the city is certainly the magnificent cathedral and adjoining bishops' palace.
The southwest area of Wales is a haven for wildlife, some of which you will struggle to see in any other part of the UK. Some of Pembrokeshires rare wildlife includes Puffins, Grey Seals, Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises. Whales such as the Fin Whale and the Minke Whale can bee seen off the shore of Pembrokeshire, while hundreds of Bottlenose Dolphins live permanently in and around Cardigan Bay, many thousands of visiting dolphins also come to the area each year.
This area of Wales has an abundance of magnificent castles, which range from grand fortified mansions to towering medieval fortresses; in fact, there are over 50 forts and castles in Pembrokeshire to explore. A number of the castles are still well preserved despite their age and many occupy some stunning locations making for a fascinating visit.
The Southwest coastline of Wales is blessed with many great stretches of golden sandy beaches, many of which offer some beautiful views and more blue flag awards than any other county in Great Britain. With over 50 beaches to choose from you are bound to find the one that's perfect for you, whether it's for surfing, catching a few rays or spending the day with your family building sandcastles.
