South West Wales is home to castles, beautiful gardens, a cathedral and a remarkable National Park. We travel through wonderful Welsh scenery, visit Pembroke and Tenby, and stay in four-star comfort at our new Best Western hotel.
Day 1 After your door to door taxi transfer, we travel to Tenby via Swindon and Newport, making suitable refreshment stops along the way. We arrive at our hotel late afternoon.
Day 2 This morning we travel to Aberglasney Gardens, in the beautiful landscape of the Tywi Valley. On our return we visit the pretty village of Saundersfoot before returning to our hotel mid-afternoon.
Day 3 We spend our day in the west in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the historic town of Pembroke. The town’s centrepiece is its magnificent Norman Castle, which is one of the finest and best-preserved strongholds in the country. This afternoon we continue to the tiny city of St. David’s, dominated by its impressive cathedral.
Day 4 Enjoy a free day in Tenby. Alternatively, have a half day in Tenby before joining your driver in the afternoon for a journey across the bluestone Preseli Mountains and along the Teifi Valley to Cenarth. This charming conservation village has spectacular waterfalls, and we visit the National Wool Museum. Those who stay in Tenby will be picked up on the return.
Day 5 After a leisurely breakfast we travel to the National Botanic Garden of Wales, where we find over 100,000 plants and also the remarkable British Birds of Prey Centre. Take a walk around the aviaries, enjoy a talk by one of the falconers or watch a flying display (weather dependent).
Day 6 We say farewell to Wales and make our way home making suitable comfort stops along the way arriving back in the local area late afternoon.
