South West Wales
Imagine strolling along miles of unspoiled country lanes (without the need for your wellies or walking boots!) and hearing only one or two car engines along the way. Think of the feeling of filling your eyes with a new breathtaking view every few minutes. Picture how your senses would illuminate by seeing and hearing the sounds of delightful little wildlife thriving in their untouched environment.
That’s the kind of pure magic that West Wales can offer.
West Wales promises some of the most exciting experiences the country has to offer; and it’s full of natural beauty and rich with culture too.
Here are just a few of the things to tick off your “to do” list when you visit
It’s hard to visit West Wales without taking a peak inside this incredible castle. Once the seat of a succession of major barons, Pembroke Castle has played a big part in shaping Britain's history. Explore the labyrinth of mystical passageways and towers, take in the glorious views from the 75ft high Great Keep and descend into Wogan Cavern. And after all that, enjoy the simplicity of a picnic within the grounds of history.
Reach the Highest Peak
Pen Y Fan mountain boasts the highest peak in South Wales and if have the opportunity to experience the view from the top, grab it with both hands!
The four mile circular walk from the Storey Arms Outdoor Centre or the nearby Port ar Daf car park is the most popular choice for tourists; even small children can tackle this route when the weather is good.
Cradled in the magnificent South Pembrokeshire coastline is the famous Caldey Island, where the Cistercian monks of Caldey continue a tradition which began during the 6th Century.
Over 1,400 years of prayer and peaceful living have made this remote and charming island a true haven of tranquillity and peace. Take a trip to Caldey and the monks will welcome you and your family into their quiet, island home – a heart-warming experience that you won’t forget in a hurry!
