In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Bosherston is located close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The border of the range is approx 800m away. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8 km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan's Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.

We have just finished a glorious dry and warm week at Honeysuckle Lodge. We think this is our 7th year here. As ever we enjoyed a warm welcome from Susie and Rufus the dog. A cliff top walk near Stack Rocks was well worth it, with sightings of oyster catchers, a cormorant, guillemots and various gulls. Needless to say, we have enjoyed Broadhaven beach, where it has been warm enough to brave the water without wetsuits. The cream teas at Ye Olde Worlde cafe are still the best in the area! A disappointment was mackeral fishing from Tenby- annoyingly the took our money, knowing full well they hadn't has a bite in weeks.Be warned! Please also visit the Mencap walled gardens, they sell a great selection of home grown veg that are delicious and good value. It is nice to support the project.
