If you’re thinking of bringing your four-legged friend on holiday to Pembrokeshire and want to hear all about it from the horse’s mouth (or the dog’s in this case!) then let Lucy fill you in.

Lucy the happy little ‘chigi’ is a cross between a corgi and a chihauha and she’s spent her 3 years delighting at the dog-friendly treasures our picturesque coastline has to offer. She simply can’t imagine a better place for a pet-friendly holiday!

To give you a few pointers on the best places to explore, we’re delighted to present Lucy’s photo diary!

Carew Castle and Mill pond - dog friendly breaks in Pembrokeshire at Celtic Haven Carew Castle and Mill Pond

The walk around Carew Castle and Mill Pond is absolutely stunning and perfect for four-legged explorers! Stopping off for a picnic overlooking the castle is Lucy’s favourite way of finishing this lovely walk!

You’ll also find the lovely Carew Inn close by, serving delicious food and welcoming dogs in the bar area.

Waterwynch Bay, Tenby - dog friendly breaks in Pembrokeshire at Celtic Haven Waterwynch Bay

Waterwynch Bay is a beautiful and very quiet little cove just a mile or so around the coastline from Tenby. The view of Tenby’s iconic skyline is well worth the visit and this often deserted beach is Lucy’s absolute favourite for a game of catch!

To reach Waterwynch Bay, take the first left turning after New Hedges if you’re heading towards Tenby. At the bottom of the lane, follow the footpath signposted ‘To the beach’ and then enjoy!

Manorbier Castle - dog friendly breaks in Pembrokeshire at Celtic Haven Manorbier Beach and Castle

Manorbier Beach and Manorbier Castle are a couple of minutes in the car from Celtic Haven or, if you fancy taking in the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline, about an hour and a half walk along the beautiful Coast Path.

It’s well worth the effort as you’ll also enjoy Skrinkle Haven and the ‘Church Doors’ rock formation along the way!

Lucy loves nothing more than paddling in the freshwater stream and rock pools on Manorbier Beach – it’s great for grabbing a drink to cool down on a hot day too!

Lawrenny Quay - dog friendly breaks in Pembrokeshire at Celtic HavenLawrenny Quay and woodlands

Tucked away on the Cleddau Estuary you’ll find beautiful Lawrenny – a hidden gem with a gorgeous woodland walk, weaving between the trees along the water’s edge. Perfect for a good old sniff around!

At the end of a long walk, Lawrenny Quayside is an ideal stop-off point for a delicious lunch with stunning views of boats sailing up the estuary. Plus, dogs are welcomed in the garden – Lucy absolutely loves it here!

Freshwater East beach - dog friendly breaks in Pembrokeshire at Celtic HavenFreshwater East Beach

If you’re looking for a lovely, long stretch of sand with fabulous views and not many people, Freshwater East is definitely a must.

With a network of paths leading down the cliff into the dunes and onto the beach, it’s an interesting and fun places for dogs (and their owners!).

There’s usually an ice-cream van in the car park during the summer so Lucy is quick to head here for an ice lolly to cool her off!

Sometimes the best beaches are a bit off the beaten track and are better reached by car…..

….not a problem for Lucy when she loves nothing better than riding through the beautiful back roads of Pembrokeshire with the top down!!
