    Having had a great time when we visited the Gower Peninsular we will be going a little further this time to the Pembrokeshire Coast and returning via the Brecon Beacons. Please to hear about the experiences of others regarding CL's, pubs, walks and anything else that you would consider a "must see" in this part of the world,

    Pembrokeshire:
    You'll feel you've arrived as you look down on the vast Newgale beach.
    Then Solva - lovely walks either side of the estuary. Bit tense with wide truck but usually fine going up hill.
    We always stay carfai bay - world class views.
    St David's is charming and unmissable cathedral and ruins.
    Eat/drink farmers arms or try Cwtch for finer dining.
    Coast a tering is great fun or you could take the fast boat out to Ramsay island.
    Walk around the headland to spot seals and dolphins (Wales have also been spotted).
    Eat crab at porthgain pub.
    Try surfing white sands.


    Brecon - site by roundabout is good . Easy walk to pub in llanywern for good steaks.
    We often walk along the canal or head up pen y fan from Pencelli side - don't bother with west side path as is a motorway.

    Pencelli camping site is good but does not take dogs.

    White hart pub there has given fantastic food in the past.

    HTH

    Ask away if need more info.

    Just heard that two motorhomes have been parked in Porthgain car park for five days and have been seen letting their grey waste out onto the car park. I had been led to believe that the owners of the car park, the Pembs national park have a guideline of one night only for motorhomes.
    Most motorhomes stopping for the night park on a nice flat area down by the HARBOUR out of the way however I believe these two vans and their toad have been in the main busy carpark. If they have a toad why not stay on one of the campsites that are sitting half empty locally.
    I DO NOT THINK THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOUR DOES US ANY FAVOURS AS REGARDS MOTORHOME WILD CAMPING.

    Well, we're off tomorrow morning with Tenby as the first stop and a boat trip to Skoma and finishing up at Hay on Wye as the only fixed points on our agenda. Many thanks to all who have contributed; it will be nice to be on the road again...............its been nearly two weeks since the last trip ;););)

    Just a quick update now that we have returned home. Pembrokeshire was lovely and we were also lucky with the weather so all in all it was a great trip. However we do have to mention the highlight of the trip, and that was our visit to Skomer Island to see the Puffin's and other nesting seabirds. If you are even remotely interested in birds then a visit to this island is a MUST. We are well travelled and have ticked the boxes on many of the worlds "must see" locations but we have no hesitation regards putting Skomer Island in our top ten..........absolutely brilliant....

    Head in to south pembs.

    Take a look at freshwater east and west, barafudel & broad haven beaches. Bosheston lolly ponds, angle bay, manobier.

    Miles of splendid coastal paths.

    Then north pembs.

    Good walks around Brecon without doing the packed out tourist routes. Get an os map.
    good flat walk down the canal.

    Pembrokeshire Coast? All of it. I've walked the bit between Fishguard and Dale.

    Alright then, being selective, the coastal path between Abereiddy and Porthgain, and the bit around Marloes Sands including a day trip to Skomer Island. There's a fairly straightforward coastal walk from Solva to Newgale. Little Haven is picturesque in the evenings. St Davids is interesting but don't expect it to occupy you for more than half a day, if that, unless you like twee shops. The nearby beach at Whitesands is the closest you'll get to overcrowded Cornwall in the whole area - almost everywhere else is mercifully quieter.

    We quite like Newgale campsite as a stopover because it's fairly central, but there's no EHU if you need it. It's easy to go too far out on a limb in Pembs then spend ages driving along narrow winding roads to get to other places.

    Manorbier castle and bay is nice, and you've got an Iron Age village reconstruction up at Castell Henlys, if that floats your coracle. The coastline is well served by buses which makes a coastal hike/bus combination fairly easy to do.
