Wind blown walks & cosy pubs
Visit Pembrokeshire in winter
It’s impressive to watch. The Atlantic rollers, formed way out to sea by a winter storm, making a bee-line for the Pembrokeshire coast.
Stood on the cliffs, high above the sea, on the coast path, you can feel the spray when the waves slam into the cliffs with impressive force. You hear the ooh’s and aahs, like on Bonfire night, from the watching crowds.
The storms might even bring snow. It transforms Pembrokeshire; beaches with snow, somehow it’s not quite right. Kitted out in your winter woollies, grab that sledge and head for the nearest hill. Being Wales, we have a few! It may not last long but the snow brings the widest smiles to faces and cold, so cold toes, no matter how many socks you have on!
Don’t shy away from encroaching winter: embrace the cold and tempestuous weather by wrapping up and facing the elements.

Winter is quiet across Pembrokeshire, it’s that lull before and after Christmas but it’s a brilliant time to grab a bargain. Cosy cottages with a wood burner or cliff top hotels that keep you safe from the elements offer great deals on a winter break.
Christmas in Pembrokeshire is a family affair and New Year a time for friends. Plenty of pubs and restaurants open for Christmas and New Year dinner. It’s a winner for everyone with no washing up to do either, but book early!
Winter gives you the chance to reflect on a busy year and to look forward to your next adventure in Pembrokeshire.
