We are the best place to stay if you are a group of friends or a couple. Central, beautiful, and next to all the stunning attractions in Pembrokeshire. Here are 10 things you can do in autumn while you stay.
Take a walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is an 186-mile trail that winds along the rugged coastline of Pembrokeshire, offering stunning views of the sea, cliffs, and secluded beaches. In the autumn, the leaves change colour and the air is crisp and clear, making it the perfect time to enjoy a leisurely walk. As you walk along the path, you can stop to admire the views, take photos, or simply enjoy the peace and quiet.
Visit a castle. Pembrokeshire is home to more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world. They include Pembroke Castle (birthplace of Henry VII and the Tudor dynasty), Carew Castle, and Manorbier Castle. These historic castles offer a glimpse into the past and can be a fun and romantic place to visit with a partner or friend. You can explore the castles’ grounds and ruins, learn about their history, and imagine what life was like there centuries ago.
Go for a coastal drive. Pembrokeshire’s coastline is one of the most scenic in the UK, with its dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, and picturesque villages. On a coastal drive, you can wind your way along the coastline, stopping off at places like Tenby, St. Davids, and Newport. Take your time to enjoy the views, stop for a bite to eat or drink, and explore the villages that you pass along the way.
Go whale watching. Pembrokeshire is a great place to go whale watching, as it is home to a variety of whale and dolphin species, including minke whales, humpback whales, and bottlenose dolphins. There are a number of tour operators that offer whale-watching tours, so you can book a trip and see these amazing creatures up close.
