All things Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire old and new

Pembrokeshire is a shire in the far west of Wales, situated in the United Kingdom. Pembrokeshire is a most beautiful, picturesque part of Wales. The coastline, some 299 km (186 miles) edges the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which extends from St Dogmaels in the North to Amroth in the South.

Pembrokeshire has a virtual division between North and South due to the language ‘barrier’ – Welsh speaking in the North and English speaking in the South, this is infamously known as the Landsker line.

Pembrokeshire not only has an intriguing coastline, but a people of many dialects and character. It is often said that people will leave the County in search of their fortune but will always return.

How can visitors not be attracted to this mysterious, magnetic part of the British Isles. Pembrokeshire has history, culture, vibrancy, beaches and coastline to die for and above all a laid back (if not fallen over) wonderful people.
