Harrolds Cottages

Local attractions and activities


Fishing

Some of the finest Bass fishing in Wales is to be had locally. There is superb estuary fishing from Cosheston through Lawrenny to Landshipping to ragworm dug locally. Or fish the surf after the holidaymakers have gone home for the day at Freshwater West, Manorbier or Freshwater East.

If you wish to bring your own dingy with you to increase your chances from the boat, you can launch easily from a number of local public slipways. We have plenty of space at the cottages to park your dingy during your stay. Excellent coarse fishing at the nearby fishery of Ian Heeps - the well known UK match angler, or at our friend's carp and coarse fishery near Oakwood theme park.

The deep sea angler can book day trips from Milford Haven, Saundersfoot or Tenby harbour or book a few hours mackerel fishing in the bay. All tackle supplied by the boats. There is also some excellent sea trout and salmon fishing on the Rivers Cleddau or The Taf, as well at some large trout fisheries such as Llys y Fran reservoir (700 acres). Smaller put and take trout fly fisheries such as Puddleduck and White mill as within a half hours drive.

Horse Riding

Horse riding is available locally at Jeffreyston, or at The Dunes riding centre. Pembroke riding centre and Oasis park equestrian centres are just a few miles further. Haverfordwest Bowlings riding school and Hundleton riding school are also both nearby.

Theme Parks

The well known theme park Oakwood is only a ten minute drive away from Harrolds Cottages and a superb option for a day visit

Beaches

Pembrokeshire's well known coastline has many fabulous beaches for you to enjoy on your visit. Tenby and its surrounding coast is home to four popular beaches all lifeguarded and only a ten or so minute drive from Harrolds Cottages. Nearby beaches other than Tenby include Manobier, Barafundle, Freshwater East, Freshwater West, Broadhaven South and Lydstep. All beaches are never more than thirty minutes drive from the cottages and ensure that your beach journeys are both varied and enjoyable.

Walking and Cycling

Pembrokeshire's well known national coastal path provides excellent walking and scenery alike with breathtaking views right accross the county. Likewise Pembrokeshire's contrasting terrain is criss-crossed by an extensive network of quite country lanes, making it a great destination for cyclists of all abilities. There are also opportunities to enjoy traffic-free rides through some of the county's spectacular scenery on both surfaced and un-surfaced tracks.
