Holidays in West Wales
Marloes is a serene little Welsh village that is nestled just below the coastline of St Brides in South West Wales, Pembrokeshire. Its neighbouring village, Dale, is less than three miles away, and also features stunning scenery of the Pembrokeshire coastline.
Vacationing in Marloes will give you the pleasure and wonderful experience of being surrounded by nature. Being quite remote, this area is sure to offer you a relaxing, peaceful and enjoyable atmosphere, catering to the needs of families, and couples that fancy a romantic getaway. It is also a magnificent place to see many species of wild sea birds, as from the tip of the peninsula, where Marloes is situated, the Island of Skomer can be seen. This radiant Island is home to several colonies of Puffins, Manx Shearwaters, Razorbills, and numerous others. These distinctive birds nest here on this rocky outcrop, and add to the splendour of the radiant coastline. Trips to the Island can be arranged, and as it is only a mile long, you can be sure to explore all aspects of this magical place and catch a glimpse of the other wildlife on the Island, supported by the nature reserve. Here you can see the Deer Park, grazed by Wild Welsh Mountain ponies, and if visiting in the autumn or winter, you may catch sight of some baby seal pups being born on the rocky beach below.
The area of Marloes provides a whole multitude of scenic walks, all igniting into splashes of colour glorified by the wild flowers that grow in this area. In spring, see the field’s blossom with a carpet of bluebells and set the scene for some of the amazing sights of the Welsh countryside. Flowering trees sweep over country roads, and pave the way to captivating coastline and striking beaches, all reinforcing the beauty of this natural landscape. After soaking up all the fresh countryside air, call into “The Lobster Pot Hotel”, situated in the centre of the village, for a friendly welcome and good choice local cuisine. With a good variety of choice, all the family will be content and ready for more adventure. If you fancy travelling a little further a field, venture out along the coastline, and take a tour of the neighbouring picturesque villages. Talbenny is less than five miles away, and is another coastal village, abundant in agricultural craft, and local delicatessen. Little Haven, just six miles away, is located directly by the coast, and presents the charming seaside village atmosphere. As an old fishing village, it retains its appealing character, and is now a conservation area. It is from here that you can also see and visit St Brides Castle, and wine and dine in the cosy comfort of “The Castle”. There are the odd few gift shops scattered around the area, however, for a more glamorous choice, visit the City of St Davids, full with architectural attraction, or the historical town of Haverfordwest, filled with many shops and evening entertainment, as well as an abundance of local historical interest.
