For coastal days, a drive of five miles or so, offers tremendous choice. Little Haven, provides not just a Blue Flag beach but also gastronomic delights from its tea rooms, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The Swan, with splendid views across the small, sandy bay offers a great menu created from the abundant array of Pembrokeshire produce and the perfect place to witness the madness of the New Years Day swim or the mayhem of the August raft race. Horse riding, golf and fishing are all available within 5 miles of the property.
The vast expanses of beach at nearby Broadhaven and Newgale offer a host of water sports; from kite surfing to power boating, there’s something available to coax everyone into the sparkling blue waters of St Brides Bay. While the terrace at the Druidstone Hotel, a rambling Victorian building on the cliffs above the beach at Druidstone Haven, offers the perfect place to dine, often to live music, while watching the sunset across these waters. The sights, experiences and facilities on offer within easy reach of Plas Mynydd are both vast and diverse: From adrenalin pumping theme park rides to the awe inspiring medieval castles, even a vineyard and chocolate factory. Pembrokeshire caters for everyone. Shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, cinema, golf etc can all be found in the bustling market town of Haverfordwest, just 12 miles down the road. With its Georgian architecture and the remains of a Norman Castle, the County town is an intriguing place. The fortnightly Riverside Farmer’s Market, voted best of its kind in the UK and the weekly, vast undercover car boot sale at the air field are a bargain hunter’s dream. The picturesque coastal village of Slova with its many galleries, pubs, restaurants and unique shops, is also well worth a visit. Once a vital centre of coastal trade, boat trips now set sail from the harbour to witness the sensational sight of the thousands of Shearwaters making their evening return from Cardigan Bay to their nests on Skomer Island. The Harbour Inn with its menus created from local, seasonal produce and The Old Pharmacy, great for Slova lobster and crab, both make excellent venues for lunches and evening meals.
At a distance of just 12 miles, St Davids, the smallest city in the UK can’t be missed. A place of pilgrimage since the 12th century, its medieval cathedral remains at the heart of this charming place. Oriel y Parc, a captivating visitor’s centre, along with shops, restaurants, cafes and galleries all cater well for the needs of the modern day pilgrim. A variety of boat trips take wildlife lovers on the trail of dolphins, seals, porpoises and whales and land on the RSBP Ramsey Island, while thrill seekers can journey at speed, deep into caves and through narrow gullies. Recuperate on the stunning Whitesands beach or refuel on tasty dishes of local produce at Cwtch on the High Street. On returning to Plas Mynydd after the multitude of experiences there are to be had, you can’t fail to appreciate the comfort and convenience it offers. The perfect place to relax and unwind in time for the next adventure!
