L O C A L A D V E N T U R E S
Newgale and Nolton Haven
Pantier is only a 1.5 mile drive to the stunning Blue Flag beach at Newgale. With its 2 miles of golden sand and a surf and watersports activity centre on site there is so much on offer for families, surfers and walkers alike – with the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path offering some of the most spectacular scenery in Wales. A hop, skip and a jump to the next cove, the small but beautiful beach of Nolton Haven, is a fabulous spot for a child friendly kayak at high tide and the local stables on site offer the most wonderful coastal hacks down to glorious Druidstone beach and beyond. Ever fancied an exhilarating gallop through the waves? Go on, now’s your chance!
Solva and St Davids
For those in search of local craft, culture and foodie delights, we are only a short drive to the picturesque harbour village of Solva, perfect for some fish and chips and crabbing on the harbour, and charming St Davids, the smallest city in the UK but with the biggest of hearts. With its beautiful ancient cathedral, festivals, galleries, trendy shops and eateries, it’s a hub for art lovers and foodies alike. However, if you do find yourself feeling a little adventurous, why not hop on a boat trip to Ramsay Island. Dramatic caves and crystal blue waters full of dolphins, whales, puffins and seals, make for a trip to remember – when in Rome as they say!
Brandy Brook walk
If you fancy a local walk – the beautiful ancient valley of Brandy Brook is only down the hill! So pack yourself a picnic and head down to Roch Mill where you can pick up the path and follow the beautiful stream towards the ruins of an old mill.
F U R T H E R A F I E L D – N O R T H A N D S O U T H A D V E N T U R E S
Pantier is in the perfect location for exploring both north and south Pembrokeshire – with both areas offering up their own unique personalities. You may choose to head north in search of the rugged beauty of the northern coastline, the blue lagoon at Abereiddy or perhaps the wild and unique Preseli mountains, where Stonehenge’s blue stones originated, or head south and explore the Dale Peninsular, Skomer island and it’s remarkable puffins, Pembroke’s historic castle, or the soft golden sands of Tenby south beach.

The Jones clan are all rather partial to two wheels here at Pantier – and so is Pembrokeshire – with the huge Tour of Pembrokeshire event in May every year, stunning scenery and new bike routes popping up all the time – there is no better place for a biking holiday! And why not do it in style with us!
We have a secure unit on site to house your bikes while you’re staying, all the tools you’ll need, hoses, maps and first hand knowledge of the very best bike tours around the area – road, mountain / trails and family friendly routes (and best coffee / pub stops too!) – including over the truly stunning Preseli hills, and if you’re very lucky, Dr Jones might even give you a guided tour! (That’s what he’s hoping for anyway!)
