Holidays in West Wales
Fancy being swept away by the astonishing beauty of the Pembrokeshire countryside, and enthralled by the sounds of the rolling tides and natural wildlife, all nestled between miles of vivid fields and cultural extravagance? Then explore and focus your destination to Dale. This delightful rural village is centred between vast crystal ocean, and stunning infinite countryside, giving its visitors a stunning combination of both breathtaking views, and the peace and tranquillity of welsh rural life. Dale even has its own famous piece of history, as this is where King Henry Tudor landed before going on to the battle of Bosworth.
Dale is located in the far South West of Wales, and is delightfully close to many seaside towns, and villages. With a short ten minute walk, you will find yourself staring straight out at the Pembrokeshire coastline, and can enjoy the views from the comfort of “The Griffin inn”. This local pub is guaranteed to offer up a warm welcome and an appetizing meal whatever the weather, as it provides the ability to eat out in the warmth of the sunshine in summer, and cosy up by the log fire in winter.
With the village being so close to the coastline, it is very popular for windsurfing, and boasts its own watersport learning centre. It is here that you can try out numerous watersport activities guaranteed to thrill and excite all members of the family, such as kayaking, power boating, and even surfing.
If you are a keen walker, take a stroll to the edge of the Peninsula and see the old lighthouse at St Annes Head, and enjoy a panoramic view of the Celtic Sea.
Exploring this area is a journey through time and allows you to get a real sense of the splendour that being out in the countryside can offer. Touring through many lanes, and agricultural farmland, will allow you to see many species of bird, such as herons, as well as other wildlife. If you continue your journey north, along the sweeping coastline of St Brides, you will venture into the striking City of St Davids. Here you can explore the many quaint boutique shops, as well as the architectural charm of St Davids Cathedral. Being the site for pilgrimage in the middle ages, the Cathedral is the main attraction of the City, and boasts some beautiful Norman architecture. The many other buildings that line the picturesque streets, and are home to some endearing gift shops, pop into “The Old Sweet Shop” next to the Cathedral Gatehouse for a trip down memory lane. This unique shop hosts variety of sweets and all the chocolates you could want, and is a great place to treat the young ones, and yourself!
