Pembrokeshire nominated for prestigious Countryfile Magazine Awards 2019

26th January 2019

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park has been nominated for the prestigious Countryfile Magazine Awards 2019 National Park of the Year award as the county looks to bag victory for the second consecutive year.

With stunningly diverse landscapes, a plethora of wildlife and numerous sites of historical interest, Pembrokeshire’s 186 miles of coastal path attracts thousands of people to the county each year.

On the nomination process, panellist and Countryfile presenter Charlotte Smith said: “It was a joy to sit in a (small) room with some lovely and interesting people and chunter about our favourite places. I made notes and will be checking out some of the other judges’ recommendations.

“Actually making decisions on the shortlist was significantly harder! But I hope you agree we’ve found some fantastic parts of the country – now vote, and visit.”

The county secured the Holiday Destination of the Year award for 2018, with the publication stating:  “We love that the beaches are less crowded than Devon and Cornwall but the wildlife is no less spectacular with choughs, puffins and cetaceans to see offshore.

“The coastal path is a joy to walk and there are so many great places to eat local and seasonal produce. A worthy winner!”

Voting is open until 17th February, with the winners to be announced mid-March and will appear in the May issue of BBC Countryfile Magazine
