The Pembrokeshire coast is one of the most sought-after British holiday destinations for a number of reasons; it boasts miles of sandy beaches, smugglers caves, shipwrecks, hillforts and tiny harbour villages.
Atlantic View sits proudly along one of the finest stretches of this coastline, above the beautiful village of Broad Haven in St Brides Bay. Situated perfectly between the St Davids peninsula and the larger settlement of Milford Haven,
Atlantic View is a mere 300 metres from the beach with easy access to the Pembrokeshire coast path. The coast path runs for 186 miles along the shoreline of Pembrokeshire and the county boasts being the only coastal national park in the UK. Due to its significant historic sites, its abundance of wild and endangered species and its spectacular seaside vistas, people flock here year-round to walk along this special shoreline. Atlantic View is the perfect relaxing base for plenty of Pembrokeshire coast adventures.
Broad Haven itself has been a seaside resort since the 1800s. It’s only 6 miles south-west of the county town of Haverfordwest, and due to its large sandy beach and its views out across the bay, it’s the perfect resort village for locals and visitors alike.
The sandy blue flag beach is ideal for water sports such as surfing, windsurfing and sailing. It has many rock pools at its north end to entertain small children, and it has geologically interesting features such as rock folds and stacks such as Lion Rock. It’s also a very short walk to the neighbouring village of Little Haven with its restaurants, small beach and coastal walks past collapsed coal mines, hinting at the industrial past of this fascinating stretch of Pembrokeshire coast. In fact, you can see coal seams in the cliff face at Broad Haven and Little Haven, a hint at the once-bustling coal mining and slate producing mines that created these coastal communities.
Beyond the immediate vicinity of Broad Haven are some of Pembrokeshire coast’s most popular attractions, such as the surfing beach at Newgale, St Davids Cathedral, and the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven. Atlantic View is also facing Grassholm island, less well known than its siblings Skomer, Skockholm and Ramsey, but famous in the natural world for being the home to the second-largest colony of gannets in the world. Standing on the balcony of the Penthouse at Atlantic View looking out over the Pembrokeshire coast you may even see a porpoise or dolphin playing in the bay!
We hope you enjoy your stay!
