The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, one of Britain’s breathing spaces is a spectacular area that takes in about a third of the county, including the entire coastal strip, the upper reaches of the Daugleddau (two swords) and the Preselis.

The National Trust owns and protects many of the most important sections of the coast especially around Barafundle beach, Marloes, St Davids, Porthgain & Dinas. The trust also runs the superb Colby Woodland Gardens at Amroth and the Tudor Merchant’s House near the harbour in Tenby.
Permbrokeshire is home to many castles including Carew, Pembroke and Picton. The area is hugely popular with walkers, bird watchers, golfers, classic car groups, bikers, surfers and beach lovers. .
