Newport (Pembs)

Details

The small town of Newport sits at the mouth of the beautiful Nevern Estuary and in the shadow of Carn Iglis. The flora and fauna of the estuary and the mountain attract a wide range of wildlife, whilst the river Nevern is home to an abundance of sewin, lobster and crab which can be enjoyed in many of Newport’s restaurants. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes through Newport and many walkers have had the good sense to spend a night or two enjoying the warm hospitality on offer in this sleepy seaside haven.

Newport also has an enviable collection of beaches, both Traeth Mawr (Big Beach or Newport Sands) and Parrogwith, as well as the two smaller beaches, Bettws and The Cwm, are awash with golden sands. The slopes of archaic Carn Iglis not only boast views as far as Snowdonia, but also the standing stones of the Carreg Coetan Neolithic burial chamber.

Apart from the fantastic sea food and sea views available in Newport itself the town provides opportunities for a range of activities, from windsurfing and kayaking to horse-riding and golf. The picturesque winding streets are also home to a number of arts and crafts shops that exude a enchanting homespun charm. Newport is also home to a Norman Castle with a remarkably well preserved tower and the West Wales Eco Centre. Newport is the perfect destination for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers exploring Pembrokeshire National Park or indeed anyone in search of well-deserved tranquillity.
