Visiting Pembrokeshire with Dogs

Visiting Pembrokeshire with Dogs-This post is in collaboration with Coastal Cottages-

Visiting Pembrokeshire with dogs has some how become an annual thing, packing Sev and Lily up into the car and making the journey to the West of Wales.

Pembrokeshire coastline is truly gorgeous, with dog beaches scattered around, beautiful places to visit and an array of dog friendly cafes and pubs, here's our dog friendly guide on Visiting Pembrokeshire.

Where to Stay
Coastal Cottages specialise in Pembrokeshire holiday and homes and cottages, with a great selection of dog friendly properties around the county. The Woof Guide will help you search for properties that the dog will love too, find things to do through your stay and places to visit.
Sunnybank was the gorgeous 6 person cottage where we stayed in Manorbier, two dogs are allowed to join you although aren't permitted in the bedrooms or on the furniture- something to really think about when holding with dogs, especially if it's the norm at home. 
The cottage has a lovely lounge with fire place, gorgeous artwork on the walls, an amazing enclosed garden, and a kitchen with everything you could think of for the stay.

Manorbier is a lovely small village with a shop and beach (that is dog friendly all year round), as well as a tearooms and pub, everything you need close by. However we loved visiting new towns and villages, and exploring Pembrokeshire further.

Where to Visit
When visiting Pembrokeshire with Dogs, Tenby is always on the list. The sweet bustling town is full of pastel colour houses, cafes and shops. 
The beaches do hold restrictions, and going in April was the perfect time to make best use out of the beaches, however South Beach has a great area that your dog can be off lead and enjoy the stunning golden sand and the sea.

Starting the day with breakfast at South Beach Bar & Grill, a lovely place to eat and drink right on the beach. The dogs are allowed on the terrace area and at the back of the restaurant. The brunch was a perfect way to start the day before a run on the beach.

Stopping at Cadwaladers for ice cream and milkshakes, dogs are allowed in and they even off Frozzy's frozen dog friendly yogurt too, which is a great treat. 

Barafundle Bay
A National Trust beach with a lovely cafe and coastal walk to get to this stunning golden sand beach. This beauty is dog friendly all year round, so a much visit with the dogs. The walk itself to the bay is gorgeous, and when down their it's truly beautiful.

For a Pembrokeshire Sunset
The weather was good to us on a few days of the trip, making the most of a relaxing holiday and being together, we searched for spots to watch the sunset, on evening.
This took us to Freshwater West beach, another gorgeous golden beach with sand dunes and that all important view of the sunset.
The beach is dog friendly all year round, and Sev and Lily loved running up and down the dunes and splashing in the sea. One of our favourite beach trips whilst Visiting Pembrokeshire with dogs, and one I'll remember for a long time.

Dog Friendly Ice Cream
Whilst exploring Pembrokeshire with dogs, we noticed shops and ice cream parlours did offer a dog friendly alternative. Whilst in St Davids we found the nicest homemade dog ice cream, so decided to treat both humans and hounds.

Fire & Ice in Narberth also has a dog friendly version, that we sadly didn't get to try out.

The Brewery Inn
Making the most of the gorgeous self catering cottage was easy, but on our last evening we booked to eat out at a sweet pub. With a cosy feel, the interior is gorgeous and the food was amazing. The dogs were welcomed with treats and fusses, enjoying the fact they were with us. There are two dog friendly tables closer to the bar, but you certainly still feel part of the restaurant.
It does get booked up quickly, due to the two dog friendly tables being very popular, but it's well worth a visit and we'll certainly be back with visiting Pembrokeshire with the dogs, again.
