Pick Wales Holidays Pembrokeshire cottages for this year’s summer holiday - superb beaches, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a National Park that includes the Preseli Hills. Pembrokeshire’s dramatic coastline is nearly 200 miles long, with soaring cliffs, small sandy coves and huge, glorious golden beaches. No part of the county is more than 12 miles from the sea and almost all of the shoreline is within the National Park, which was 60 years old last year!
