Pembrokeshire has something for everyone. It is famous for its rugged coastline and sweeping golden beaches. For an innovative foodie scene and stunning coves in which to enjoy a sandy sandwich. For the 186 miles of coast path to enjoy at your own pace and exhilarating adventures to be had a few metres below it in the glistening sea.
A few nights spent in this wonderful county is sure to delight whatever it is you’re looking for. Here’s a guide to help you narrow down the options and make the most of your weekend in Pembrokeshire.
A Great Place For…
A big celebration: BLAS RESTAURANT
If you have something to raise a glass to while you’re in Pembrokeshire and would like to do so in style, head to Blas. A beautiful fine dining restaurant at the top of St Davids, here they take local ingredients and craft them into simply divine dishes that will have you reminiscing for a long time to come.
Lunch by the sea: THE SHED FISH & CHIP BISTRO
The Shed is nestled in the sleepy fishing village of Porthgain and is well worth a visit. Enjoy a sit-down meal inside surrounded by local artwork or take your box of fish and chips to the harbour wall to gaze out to sea. Either way, the food here is sublime, the staff are friendly and the location is second to none.
Coffee and cake: THE REALLY WILD EMPORIUM
Located on the High Street in St Davids, Really Wild is home to a cafe serving great coffee and beautiful cakes often made using locally foraged ingredients. Pop in here and watch the world go by as you sip and indulge. The shop upstairs is worth a peek as it’s jam-packed with locally made goodies.
Food on the hoof: (AM) BAGELS AND BREWS – (PM) MR FUNKS SRI LANKAN CURRY
Both of these trailers containing food heaven are located outside the St Davids Rugby Club, and both are absolute gems. In the morning get your caffeine fix alongside scrumptious bagels with a range of fillings. In the evening, enjoy traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry or try our new favourite comfort food, kottu!
History Buffs: THE BISHOPS PALACE
Just next door to the must-see St Davids Cathedral is the lesser discussed Bishops Palace. These stunning ruins are a wonderful place to visit, and adults and kids alike will love exploring the hidden nooks and crannies to learn more about the rich history of this tiny city.
Wildlife Fans: FALCON BOATS
To learn about the local wildlife, from seals to seabirds, a boat trip around the local islands is a must. Falcon Boats is run by Ffion, whose knowledge of the Pembrokeshire coast and the beings that call it home never fails to astound us. Book in and get ready to be amazed.
Walkers: The Pembrokeshire Coast path
With hidden bays and brilliant views, the Pembrokeshire coast path is 186 miles of pure magic. You can choose to take a short stroll to a picnic stop and back, or strap on your walking boots and set out for the day! Discover some of our favourite coast path walks here.
