Pembrokeshire & The Gower Peninsula

5 days Thursday 11th August – Monday 15th August 2022

The Ivy Bush Royal Hotel is within walking distance of Carmarthen town centre and was once a favourite retreat for Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton, sympathetically modernised, the hotel retains its old-world charm blended with modern day facilities. All bedrooms are en suite, and all have television, telephone, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.


Day One Depart from your home area in the morning travelling to Carmarthen and arriving late afternoon at Ivy Bush Royal Hotel. Tea/Coffee and Welsh Cake served on arrival. 4 nights stay – dinner, bed and breakfast.  Hotel entertainment is provided on two evenings.

Day Two This morning we travel west to the popular small seaside resort of Saundersfoot, where we stay awhile with time to explore the little harbour, before leaving for the short ride to Tenby. With the old town walls, interesting little side streets and alleyways to explore and superb beaches, Tenby is South West Wales’s main holiday resort and is always a pleasant and friendly place to visit. Our return takes us via Pendine Sands and Laugharne, former home of Dylan Thomas.

Day Three Our excursion today takes us to the beautiful unspoilt scenery of the Gower Peninsula, designated an ‘Area of outstanding natural beauty’. We also visit the picture postcard resort of Mumbles, delightfully located on Swansea Bay.

Day Four Today our excursion takes us to St Bride’s Bay and Newgale Sands to the magical place of St. David’s, birthplace of the patron saint of Wales. St. David’s has a beautiful Cathedral, the smallest in Great Britain, well worth a visit. From St. David’s we head around the Preseli Mountains and make our way back to Carmarthen.

Day Five After breakfast we leave and begin our homeward journey
