Perfect Pembrokeshire

The beautiful south west corner of Wales


The beautiful south west corner of Wales


Cardigan lies on the estuary of the River Teifi, at the point where Ceredigion meets Pembrokeshire. It was the county town of the pre-1974 county of Cardiganshire. It is the second largest town in Ceredigion. In recent years the town has sympathetically restored many of the shop facades in the town centre and rebuilt the quayside.


National Wool Museum, Teifi Valley

Wool was historically the most important and widespread of Wales's industries. The picturesque village of Dre-fach Felindre in the beautiful Teifi valley was once the centre of a thriving woollen industry, earning the nickname 'The Huddersfield of Wales'. Located in the historic former Cambrian Mills, shirts and shawls, blankets and bedcovers, woollen stockings and socks were all made here, and sold in the surrounding countryside - and to the rest of the world.Follow the process from Fleece to Fabric and visit the sympathetically restored listed mill buildings and Historic Machinery


St Davids (or St David's)

Full name St Davids and the Cathedral Close in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Lying on the River Alun on St Davids Peninsula, it is Britain's smallest city in terms of both size and population, the final resting place of Saint David, the country's patron saint, and the de facto ecclesiastical capital of Wales. St Davids was given city status in the 16th century due to the presence of St Davids Cathedral but lost this in 1888. City status was restored in 1994 at the request of Queen Elizabeth II.



Tenby is a delightful little harbour town and seaside resort, and it would be difficult to find a setting more picturesque.  Many of the hotels in Tenby overlook some of Pembrokeshire's beautiful beaches and the town itself is home to many restaurants, shops, cafes and pubs all linked by cobbled streets. Tenby's hilltop position led to its early settlement as a Welsh stronghold, which was replaced in medieval times by a Norman Castle and walled town. Part of the town walls survive to this day and are an attractive feature at the entrance to the old town. Stroll the narrow cobbled streets or sit in one of the many cafes and people-watch other visitors to the gift shops, restaurants and public houses, or wander along the harbour, where you can board one of the cruises to nearby Caldey Island, or take a trip in search of the plentiful wildlife of this South West coast of Wales.
