Countryside attractions in Pembrokeshire

Practically the entire county of Pembrokeshire could be included in this part of our guide! For a start there's the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which takes in 612 square kilometres and stretches from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. This is one of the most spectacular scenic areas in Britain, with an incredibly rich ecology of plant and bird life, not to mention the wealth of historic sites including castles, churches, and prehistoric monuments.

Within the National Park are several stretches of Heritage Coast areas, such as St Brides Bay, Marloes and Dale, South Pembrokeshire, Dinas Head, and St David's Peninsula. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path links the Heritage Coasts and follows the coast for 186 miles from Poppit in the north to Amroth, and on the way it passes some of the most beautiful beaches in Britain, particularly on the southern section of the route.
