Enjoying The Pembrokeshire Coast
Enjoying The Pembrokeshire Coast
  • Description
  • Related

There can be few places in Britain where a description coined a thousand years ago can still be applied today. But the view of Pembrokeshire as gwlad hud a lledrith – ‘land of mystery and enchantment’ – expressed by the author of The Mabinogion in the famous eleventh century collection of Welsh folk tales and legends, still has not been bettered. It is a land of sharp contrasts, from dizzying cliffs to secluded, sandy coves on the coast; and from wild, tumuli-studded moorland to deep, oak-fringed estuaries which wind for many miles inland. The landscapes vary from the misty outcrops of the Preseli Hills, to the spume-flecked coastline and the mellow, sheltered estuaries of the Daugleddau.

In this practical visitor guide, published in partnership with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park authority, everything you need for an enjoyable visit to Pembrokeshire is provided. After a regional breakdown in geographical areas, the guide looks at the history, human and natural, and lists things to do and places to visit, ending with a useful gazetteer of towns and villages.

Roly Smith is former Head of Information Services to the Peak District National Park, and has got to know the Pembrokeshire coast through many walking excursions. He is Editorial Manager for Halsgrove Publishing, president of the Outdoor Writers’ Guild and a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers. He lives in the heart of the Peak District in Bakewell.

ISBN 1841144339, paperback, 205x205mm, 88 pages. Published April 2006.
