Pembrokeshire Coast & Tenby
A picturesque holiday to the Welsh coast by coach
Visit this picturesque corner of Wales, which offers wonderful beaches, stunning coastal scenery and attractive villages. The Pembrokeshire Coast was Britain's first coastal National Park and thanks to this, Pembrokeshire’s preserved coastline looks just as good as it did thousands of years ago. In the south of the county towering limestone cliffs plummet to the sea below with great swathes of golden sands. We make our base at The Fishguard Bay Hotel, strategically located near the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Day 1: We depart Kent fairly early this morning, planning a lunch stop close to Bristol before continuing our westbound journey to the Fishguard Bay Hotel.
Day 2: Spend a relaxing day exploring in and around Fishguard. Fishguard and Goodwick are the twin towns at the heart of North Pembrokeshire, the hub the outstanding natural beauty that blends the allure of sea, towering cliffs, the Preseli Hills, ancient standing stones and delightfully mysterious valleys such as Cwm Gwaun. Ideally situated for gentle and challenging walks perched right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. You’ll find family owned shops and businesses as well as galleries, gift and antique shops cafés, pubs and restaurants when you need a refreshing break – all offering a warm Welsh welcome.
Day 3: The dramatic contrasting landscape and ever changing light qualities of Pembrokeshire are a magnet for artists and crafts people. Today we offer a guided tour that will give both the history of the area and a panoramic snapshot of the county. The day will also include a visit to a craft studio to meet a practising crafts person and will have breaks in locations where galleries and studios can be explored at leisure including St David's, the smallest city in Britain.
Day 4: A trip to the lovely seaside resort of Tenby with its rich, sandy beaches. Until quite recently Tenby was known as "Little England beyond Wales" and the town remains a rather anglicised part of Wales. From the early 19th century, Tenby became a fashionable holiday destination for both the Welsh and the English, and its attractions to the holidaymaker are just as obvious today, with the fantastic beaches stretching to the north, the west, and the south of the town. We include a boat trip to Caldey Island, home to a small village and its famous monastery.
Day 5: After breakfast, we make our return journey back to Kent.
