Pembrokeshire (View on a map )
**Any day Arrival - Min 3 Night Stay**
This 6-acre site on the outskirts of Fishguard offers a luxurious glamping experience with 4 well-equipped yurts and a cosy pod - less than a mile from the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast. Elevated high on a valley slope, the site enjoys a stunning backdrop of Fishguard Harbour and the mystical Irish Sea, which blends seamlessly into the horizon.
The family-run site offers luxury accommodation from the 4 traditional Mongolian Yurts with woodburning stoves, comfy beds and their own exclusive kitchen cabin to the luxury shower blocks - providing all the comforts of home. The relaxed site has hammocks and benches for lazing away sunny afternoons, while at night, cosy up around the fire-pit outside and enjoy the magnificent starscapes of this dark sky location.
The North Pembrokeshire Coast offers a marvellous mix of pebble and sandy beaches, plus some of most scenic coastal walks in the country (this prehistoric coastline was voted 2nd best in the world by National Geographic). Plus, you'll find plenty of hidden coves and quiet corners to make your own - a far cry from the tourist hotspots of South Pembs.
Fishguard is a pretty little seaside town with a few cafes, restaurants and homely pubs, while the picturesque harbour in Lowertown (the old part of Fishguard) feels like a portal into a world when time flowed at a more gentle pace. This historical fishing village contains an eclectic mix of little boats and a lovely congregation of ducks that paddle on the River Gwaun as it merges with the sea. Kayaking and boat trips are available here, or simply take a stroll along the old quay to feed the ducks or stop for a coffee in the café.
A few miles to the northeast the Preseli Hills offer an enchanting expanse of rugged wilderness that is popular with walkers, sightseers and history hunters. This colourful heathland contains several Neolithic sites from Pentre Ifan - the largest and best-preserved Neolithic dolmen in Wales to the reconstructed Iron Age hill fort of Castell Henllys. Stroll along the Golden Road, said to date back more than 5000 years, and enjoy panoramic views across Pembrokeshire, while on a clear day you can see all the way to North Wales and Ireland.
Just a couple of miles to the west, Strumble Head is an eye-catching yet secluded stretch of coastline offering arguably Pembrokeshire's best coastal views. We recommend a short stroll up Garn Fawr - which contains yet another Neolithic burial site - to simply indulge in the views across Pwll Deri and the famous Strumblehead Lighthouse. The headland is also renowned for its wildlife watching. A designated observatory can be found next to the lighthouse - spot anything from the Cardigan Bay dolphins (if you're lucky!) to a huge variety of sea birds. What's more, the remote beaches here contain one of the biggest seal colonies in Europe, so expect to see plenty of baby seals in spring.

Just a short walk away to join the Coastal Path at Goodwick, walk South through Goodwick Village and on to a magnificent walk towards Strumble Head, and then further down to Porthgain, Traethllyfyn beach and Abereiddi, Abermawr and Aberbach.
This stretch of the coastline is some of the most dramatic with sweeping seascapes and cliffs. To the North is Dinas Head, a real lure for nature lovers, beautiful Ceibwr Bay, and many other natural wonders.
There is plenty here too for cyclists, with the National Coast cycle route passing through Fishguard, dozens of scenic circular routes crisscrossing the National Park, and the nearby Preseli Hills a playground for mountain bikers.
The dramatic coastal scenery, flower and wildlife are what make Pembrokeshire one of the world's best holiday destinations. Splendid at all times of the year, the explosion of colour with the spring flowers is something to behold!
