Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a two minute walk from our B & B and runs for 186 miles between Amroth in the South and St. Dogmaels in the North. It is the only national coastal path in Britain and leads to some of the most dramatic and spectacular coastal scenery in Britain. Local Buses can drop you off at certain points along the path where you can then walk back to Fishguard and Fern Villa. We are keen walkers ourselves and are happy too give advice and lend you books and maps. We are also able to transfer your luggage on to your next accommodation, please ask for costs.
Goodwick Sands (photo taken from the Marine Walk coast path.) An award winning family beach providing safe bathing. The Ocean Lab on the Parrog houses the Tourist Information Centre and has a soft play area for the under fives. Goodwick Moor, a nature reserve, lies behind the beach and attracts a wide variety of wildlife.
Strumble Head is a spectacular headland covered in wild flowers, and is delightful whatever the weather. The sunsets are particularly breathtaking. There is a sheltered bird observatory on top of the cliff which is ideal for birdwatching and spotting dolphins and sometimes whales. Seals rear their pups on the nearby beaches.
Lower Fishguard Harbour and the Gwaun Valley renowned for its largely undiscovered beauty, the river Gwaun flows from the Preselli hills to Lower Fishguard Harbour.
The Preseli Hills are ideal for walking, horse riding or touring by car. At their highest point on a clear day you may see the Snowdonia Mountain Range in North Wales and the Wicklow Mountain Range in Ireland. The 'bluestones' at Stonehenge are believed to have come from here. Pentre Ifan (below) is an ancient burial chamber situated on the Northern slopes.
Dinas Head which you can see from Fern Villa is 4 miles away and is a pleasant walk offering dramatic and far reaching views.The church at Cwm-yr-eglwys is pictured below.
Carreg Wastad is situated on the coastpath on the Pencaer peninsular and is the site of the Last Invasion of Britain in 1797.
