Views around the area

Views around the area near 9 Timber hill, Broad haven in Pembrokeshire.

We hope these photographs provide you with an insight into the beautiful area that surrounds 9 Timber Hill and allows you to plan your stay.

The nearest beach is at Broad Haven, a 20-minute stroll through woodland, rich in bird life and wild flowers; alternatively, you can drive there in around five minutes.

Newgale with its large expanse of sand is a few miles north and is a famous for surfing, windsurfing and land yachting; you can hire equipment locally if you want to give it a go.

There are many other beaches in this area of Pembrokeshire; try visiting Nolton, Druidstone, Little Haven and Marloes Sands, each has their own character although all are excellent for sandcastles! There are also local pubs and restaurants nearby, some with entertainment such as Morris dancing.

For both the serious and casual walker, the 168-mile Pembrokeshire coastal path is nearby. If you are interested in bird watching, then the nearby islands of Skomer and Skokholm are sanctuaries for breeding sea birds such as guillemots, razorbills, puffins and kittiwakes as well as colonies of seals.

Wander into Haverfordwest on a Friday morning and visit the Farmer’s market, down by the river. You can buy an excellent range of good quality and local produce.

For a relatively gentle walk, why not try strolling around Bosherton Lake; in the early summer its display of water lilies is spectacular.

Dylan Thomas’s boathouse at Laugharne  is well worth a visit. The Boathouse terrace offers wonderful views of the Taf estuary and the Gower beyond – a haven for egrets, lapwings, herons, oystercatchers, seals and otters with fishermen and cocklers continuing the ancient traditions. The lovely two-mile Dylan Thomas Birthday walk is the setting for one of his best loved works, Poem in October, in which he vividly describes a stroll around Laugharne on his 30th birthday.
