A sensory treat

Visit in Spring

Feel the energy of new life gathering, blooming and bursting out as the county explodes with colour and sound.

The bare and quiet hedgerows of winter become filled with song as local birds find their voices once more, and migrating birds return to Pembrokeshire islands after epic journeys abroad. From the land or sea, it’s a great time for birdwatching, with a boat trip being the best vantage point to observe coastal species – including the well-known puffin.

It’s a delight to watch little lambs hop, skip and jump around the fields, while at your feet flowers jostle for the first rays of warm spring sunshine, bursting to reveal a riot of colour. Daffodils, snowdrops, primroses and crocuses are abundant around St Davids Day, when Wales celebrates its patron saint on 1st March, with Pembrokeshire’s famous cathedral at the epicentre.

As the days get warmer and longer, bonny bluebells emerge with pink campions and cow parsley, bringing verges and hedgerows to life with diverse flora and fauna. There are dazzling sights around every corner, so escape into one of our many tranquil gardens, or walk the coast path to find beautiful wildflowers adorning the views and scenery.

It’s also a good time to grab an accommodation bargain, with great offers to tempt you out of hibernation. Organised activities have plenty of availability compared to summer months, and all our food and drink establishments are ready to serve up fresh and tasty local fare.

A spring break or weekend in Pembrokeshire is something you didn’t realise you needed… Once you’ve visited, you’ll go home refreshed and invigorated by our beautiful nature and welcoming communities – it’s the perfect antidote to a long winter!

Walking sections of the coastal path was a delight, with a profusion of wild flowers and butterflies.
