Explore The Coast of Pembrokeshire

{flickr|100|campaign} Pembrokeshire is known as one of south Wales’ most picturesque regions and you can explore it from the town of Saundersfoot. A good way to make the most of your time in the area is using cottage holidays in Wales to tailor your trip to your own needs. You should be sure to book cottages with a sea view of such a beautiful stretch of coastline on your doorstep.

 

You could easily spend hours watching the waves roll in on the beaches below, or you could just drink in the view whenever you happen to pass the window.

 

Although looking at the scenery from the comfort of your holiday cottage may be relaxing, you should make the effort to spend some time in the great outdoors.

 

Spend an afternoon on one of the sandy beaches and amuse yourself by building sandcastles or just walk along shoreline to the sound of the waves.

 

If you want to see a bit more of the coast, you could always spend a day hiking along one of the cliff paths in the area before returning to your holiday cottage.

 

You can take it at your own speed and just enjoy the stunning scenery that surrounds you.

 

Getting another perspective of the coastline is easily done, with boat trips regularly running from Saundersfoot harbour.

 

You could take your camera and binoculars for a bit of nature spotting, or even try your hand at fishing.

 

After spending a day enjoying Pembrokeshire’s outdoor attractions, you may not feel like you want to cook in your holiday cottage.

 

But whether you have been planning your trip for months or have booked one of the spur-of-the-moment last minute breaks, you are sure to find somewhere to tantalise your taste buds.

 

Known as a “gourmet resort”, Saundersfoot has a wealth of restaurants, cafes and snack bars to keep you – and your stomach – happy.

 

Try the Mermaid on the Strand for a taste of local seafood, or book a table at Kook-a-Ba if you are feeling more adventurous and want to sample some Australian cooking.

 

If you just fancy a snack while enjoying the beach, you could always pop to Sidoli’s Ice Cream parlour, which boasts 18 different flavours of ice cream so you should be able to find one that takes your fancy.
