Wales and the Pembrokeshire Coastline, Why Choose a Holiday Cottage Here?

Have you been searching for that special holiday cottage in the United Kingdom but unsure where abouts to come and visit? How about considering a holiday cottage in Wales? Being a local of Wales, please permit me to share with you why I believe Wales is a great place to go for anybody thinking of visiting the UK or perhaps are already in the UK, but looking for a holiday cottage somewhere different.

They don't call Wales 'the big country' for no reason. For a relatively small nation, Wales has five Areas Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, three National Parks and almost 50% of the south and west coastline of Wales is dedicated Heritage Coast. Wales has the UK's only coastal National Park. Quite impressive for a country only 20,800 square kilometres.

With a landscape worthy of such high accolades, Wales is a fantastic landscape for natural history and wildlife enthusiasts. Nevertheless with this sort of diverse scenery, it can be hard to pick the best place to visit in Wales. Here is my brief overview of just one of my much-loved National Parks.

The Pembrokeshire National Park crosses nearly Six hundred and fifty sq miles, and is made of wild rugged cliffs, big sandy beachfronts, steep forested valleys, diminutive secluded coves that you can only reach by foot, plus the upland area of the historical Preseli Mountains. Even though most hype is directed to the Pembrokeshire coastline, The Preseli's are abundant in neolithic and geological history. The bluestones of Stonehenge originated from Carn Mynen, along the Preseli Ridge.

The Pembrokeshire Coastline is a place of diverse scenery. In the southern region, whilst rugged, the land has a feel that is somewhat more genteel. Towards the northern region, the shoreline becomes clearly more rugged and impressive with an all together different geology and higher cliffs. Dependent on what you are looking for in a holiday cottage, you might wish to visit different places. In the south, there are far more tourist settlements, like Saundersfoot and Tenby, for instance, so appropriate for family friendly vacations. The northern edge has a more untamed and lonely feel to it, so if you want to get away from it all, try somewhere like Abercastle. All of these areas have several private coves close by to help you truly get away from it all. They can be also be wonderful spots for discovering all Pembrokeshire offers.

Whilst I do have an understandable love for my home country of Wales, I have not really let this cloud my view too much. Wales has lots of offer people who really like nature, and who love to discover beautiful landscapes. More importantly, it has much to offer those, like me, who spend several hours gazing longingly at wide expansive views.
