Most of these cottages in Pembrokeshire are someone’s home. They rent them out to offset the rising cost of living in Wales. You may be responsible for replacing anything you break. Some cottages in Pembrokeshire are strictly non-smoking. If you are required to sign a contract, read it thoroughly so you can keep your end of the bargain. Check out what things the cottage owner is responsible for, and what he or she isn’t. The cottage owner is responsible for renting you the cottage advertised, but is not responsible for the weather. Check also what their refund policies are before you put any money down. If you think you and your family can’t be respectful of another’s property, then you are best off getting a hotel.
But, honestly, you’re on vacation in the west coast of Wales, one of the most scenic spots in Europe – how much time do you plan to spend inside the cottage in Pembrokeshire, anyway?
Don’t make your travel plans to Pembrokeshire National Park in stone before you get to the cottage. There might be surrounding woods, beaches, wildlife or events that the owner forgot to mention that could pop up. Keep yourself open to the possibilities.
The park is 620 square kilometers big, and most of it is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. There are many paths strictly limited to pedestrian or bike travel only, keeping the environment lush and full of life.
Walking any of the routes through the Park is not looking only at a series of pretty trees. You may pass castles, museums, quaint villages, gardens, pubs and even an ancient stone circle. Wales is proud of its history and loves to show it off to vacationers whenever and wherever it can! What everyone will tell you to see is the spectacular and historic St. David’s Cathedral. St. David is Wales’ patron saint, so it’s the best church in Wales. Pembrokeshire National Park is a haven for many kinds of animals and birds, including puffins, seals and wild ponies. If all this walking is too much, the Park has bus services available.
Want to go faster than a walk? You can hire horses, bikes or an off road vehicle. Maybe you’d like to go surfing or boating. Or, you might choose from golfing, fishing, archery, go-karting or paintballing. And if you want to see it all at once, you can hire an aircraft for a tour.
Despite what any locals might tell you, Wales is part of the United Kingdom. You do not need any extra paperwork to get into Wales. English Pounds are the acceptable currency, but the Euro can sometimes be used. Be sure to check the preferred payment for any event or cottage in Pembrokeshire.
