Holidays in West Wales
Redberth is a small village in Pembrokeshire with great access to some of the best outdoor locations in Pembrokeshire. Drive ten minutes to the nearby popular town of Tenby where you can enjoy a relaxing day on the beach, and best of all you have four to choose from! Harbour Beach, North Beach, Castle Beach and South Beach. South Beach is a dramatic 2km stretch of sandy coastline and from here you can easily access the coastal path or sit back and relax as this beach is the most peaceful of the four. From the Castle beach you have great views of St Catherine’s Island and you can even walk over to it in low tide unfortunately not to explore as it ia privately owned. There are many stories surrounding the structure built on the island, some say that it was once a prison and once even a zoo, however it is known that the building was completed on Lord Palmerston's (A previous prime minister of Great Britain) orders as a fort in 1870 to protect surrounding areas from invasion from Napoleon.
Redberth also has great links to popular family attractions such as Heatherton Country Sports Park, Great Wedlock Dinosaur Experience and Manor Park Wild Welsh Zoo, each being around 10 minutes’ drive away.
For those seeking a peaceful retreat in Pembrokeshire, Redberth is nearby to many coastal locations and beaches so it’s a great place to stay if you’re planning to explore some (or all) of the 186 miles of coastal path. One of the most stunning nearby beaches is Amroth, a south facing sandy beach with a pebble bank above the tide line. It has been noted that at extremely low tide the stumps from an ancient submerged forest can be seen here. If you are thinking of walking the coast path, then you should note that Amroth and its beach mark the start of this stunning trail that was recently voted the 2nd Best Coastline in the world by National Geographic.
From Redberth you can also enjoy the nearby village of Carew by taking a walk around the tidal mill and stopping off at the traditional mill and seeing how everyday items such as flour were once made. Visitors are also encouraged to use the binoculars to do a bit of bird watching through the mill windows!
