Spring is the time of year where everything feels fresh, bright, and beautiful; lambs are frolicking in the fields, flowers are blooming, and the chill of Winter is being shaken off.
West Wales is the perfect place to plan a getaway during the spring season. As the only coastal National Park in the UK, Pembrokeshire is a true gem of natural beauty and offers spectacular beaches, rolling hills, historical buildings and places of interest, and spectacular countryside scenery.
The days are beginning to grow longer as spring gently unfolds, and it is the ideal time to explore what picturesque West Wales has to offer.
For many the first thing that comes to mind when considering a staycation in Pembrokeshire is the famous beaches and coastline, fantastically clean, colourful, and award winning beauty.
Visit Saundersfoot beach where you’ll find Cŵlbox open offering delicious tempting treats to savour on a sunny walk across the sand.
Grab lunch while you watch the surfers at Freshwater West, with Café Môr rustling up incredible sandwiches and baps using locally sourced seafood and their own magical seaweed seasoning.
If you feel inspired and fancy riding the waves yourself, there are a multitude of fantastic surf schools and outdoor activities to choose from to help make your dream a reality!
This spring why not book a boat trip taking you around one of our many islands, allowing you the opportunity to explore coves and to see the coast and cliffs from an entirely new and exciting perspective.
Foraging is a unique activity which enables you to take in the wonderful coastal tastes, smells and sights Pembrokeshire has to offer. Contact Foraging with Craig Evans at Coastal Foraging or Matthew Powell at Fishing and Foraging.
A wonderful way to see and truly appreciate the spring season in West Wales is to go on a fairy-tale walk through Lodge Park Woods, a winding, magical wander through carpets of snowbells with warm green canopy filled with overhead birdsong.
Canaston Woods near Narberth are full of ancient trees, and there’s a feeling of peace and serenity which is sure to relax and inspire you.
Take a walk along the idyllic Pembrokeshire coastal path and see the flowers coming into bloom and the butterflies dancing against a backdrop of glittering, panoramic ocean views.
For a change of scenery there’s no better place than the epic rolling Preseli Hills, full of ancient history, rugged nature, and a real sense of getting back in touch with Mother Earth each time you visit. From the wild horses scattered across the hilltop to Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber and the stone circles, the Preseli Hills can be visited time and time again, with each trip discovering a new corner of splendour.
After you’ve had your fill of the beautiful 360 degree views of West Wales and beyond (on clear days you can see across to the Brecon Beacons!), take a stop off at Tafarn Sinc, the Preseli Hills very own rustic pub and restaurant packed full with charm and quirky décor, including a straw-strewn floor.
