Solva: Just 15 minutes away is the picturesque fishing village of Solva, which
offers an excellent selection of pubs, restaurants, tearooms, galleries and a
diverse clothes and gift shop. The colourful harbor is a typical sailing and
boating community where you can enjoy many different activities. When the tides
out, itís a treasure trove for young and old.
A few miles on from Solva is St Davids, named after the patron saint of Wales,
and the smallest city in Britain with a population of just over 1,600; the
magnificent Cathedral at St Davids dates back to the 12th century and a visit is
a must. There are many small interesting shops and the National Parks tourist
information centre and Oriel y Parc for you to enjoy.
Pembrokeshire boasts some of the finest coastline in Europe which can also be
enjoyed from the sea. Boat excursions offer the opportunity to catch a closer
look at seals, porpoises and a wide variety of sea birds. Oakwood Leisure theme
park is also close by, which now includes the new multi million pound Bluestone
complex. For those who prefer history, the imposing Pembroke Castle is only a
45-minute drive away. The castle is idyllically set on the banks of the River
Cleddau estuary; this mighty fortress is steeped in British history... A true
wonder of Wales. Carew Castle, Picton Castle and Manorbier Castle are also close
by. Plus of course there are many ancient monuments, such as the standing stones
at Pentre Ifan, the Bluestones of the Preselis (origin of Stonehenge), the Iron
Age Village of Castell Henllys and many more.
