Milford Waterfront is located at the very heart of the county voted ‘Holiday Destination of the Year’ in 2018 by Countryfile Magazine readers. With great road links to the south and north of the county, and Milford Haven Railway Station on site, Milford Waterfront is a perfect base from which to explore all that Pembrokeshire has to offer. Although we’d love you to stay at Milford Waterfront and enjoy our fantastic shops, restaurants and attractions, we want you to enjoy our beautiful county as much as we do. If you need any information during your stay, pop into Milford Waterfront Visitor Centre, Milford Marina Office or Tesco to pick up a copy of Coast to Coast, and other local area information.
Known across the world for its magnificent coastal scenery, Wales’ most westerly county, boasts stunning beaches, Britain’s only coastal National Park, a bounty of important seabird breeding sites, a 186 mile coastal walking trail, the smallest city in Britain, the birthplace of coasteering, a rich heritage and the Preseli Hills, home to the Bluestones of Stonehenge. And that’s just for starters!
Once, fishing and mining were the main industries here, but today the land that lies beyond our golden beaches and towering coastal cliffs is mainly agricultural. Now our old ports, coves and fishing villages, still guarded by great Castles, share their heritage and welcome visitors from the four corners of the world for relaxation, coastal exploration and adventure.
To the north, the Preseli Hills, a wide stretch of high moorland keep the secrets of the early peoples of this place, and how they transported huge bluestones to Stonehenge over four thousand years ago, while at the westerly tip is historic St Davids, Britain’s smallest city and the resting place of Wales’ patron saint.
Such a wild, beautiful landscape understandably has its store of artists and makers who respond to the wonderful light, scenery and wildlife here. Their art and crafts can be found in little galleries across the county. Our chefs are also inspired by the land and its produce, and work hard in hot kitchens to create masterpieces from world-class local produce: fresh seafood, Pembrokeshire potatoes, soft fruits and cheese to name but a few.
It’s not just beaches, shipwrecks and legends that litter our coast. Islands such as Ramsey, Grassholm and Skomer are important refuges for seals, sea life and birds, while the creatures of Caldey share the island with a Monastic community and the many visitors who travel there for daytrips by boat throughout the summer.
Castles, boat trips, coastal adventures, watersports, beaches, food festivals, adventure parks, galleries and fairground fun are all a part of the Pembrokeshire experience. Milford Haven is part of that great story and here at Milford Waterfront, we’re proud to showcase the very best Pembrokeshire has to offer.
Pembrokeshire really has something for everyone so start planning your visit today.
