Cresselly is very much a countryside retreat at its best. Lush green fields lined by magnificent trees and country lanes. Creselly is a farming community so you are sure to see grazing sheep and cows dotted around as well as the odd ambling tractor. This wonderful area is a great place to stay in Pembrokeshire for those looking for a walking holiday or a romantic escape in the country. Nearby is the scenic and calm Cresswell Quay where you will find the Cresselly Arms which is the local village pub. A traditional country pub that hosts large pig roasts and BBQs in the summer and its not unusual to see the odd horse tied up outside as many of the locals enjoy going to and from the pub by horseback.
Walking and wildlife are in abundance in this area. Try visiting Canaston Woods which is approximately 5 miles from Cresselly. Canaston Woods is classified as an ancient woodland meaning it has been in existence for over 300 years. Here you are likely to see squirrels, badgers, foxes and multiple species of bird and insect. The trails are also great for mountain biking and are definitely worth visiting if you are looking for a mountain biking holiday in South West Wales.
Slightly further down the road from Canaston Woods is Blackpool Mill. Here you can join the walk named The Knights Way which is an ancient pilgrim route to St Davids Cathedral in the North of the County. Blackpool Mill is a 19th Century water mill which has been reopened as a visitor attraction. To the east of the mill you will find Blackpool bridge which is a grade ll listed building. A single span bridge which was built in around 1825! Its definitely worth bringing along your binoculars as this is a great area for birdwatching.
Cresselly is not only great for access to inland walks but also for those wanting to visit the coast. The village of Saundersfoot is a 13 minute drive away. A colourful and bustling little village, Saunderfoot is a miniature traditional seaside resort. Some unique little shops dotted around the village make it a great place to spend the morning shopping and then the afternoon on the beach or vice versa. If youre in need of a quick pick me in the middle of the day stop off at Blooms and Beverages which has a wonderful outside patio area where you can enjoy the seaside view with a fresh roast bean coffee in hand.
