Amroth is a popular seaside village with a great beach and is an ideal location to use as a base for exploring South Pembrokeshire. Amroth is close to both the family-friendly Folly Farm wildlife attraction and the bustling resort town of Tenby, so you'll never be short of things to do when staying here.
If you book one of our holiday cottages in Amroth, you can look forward to arriving in an area that is as welcoming as it is picturesque, with the whole village overlooking the beautiful seafront. Only seven miles east of Tenby on the southern tip of Pembrokeshire, it also serves as either the starting or finishing point for walkers taking on the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
The village is notable for its half-mile stretch of soft, sandy beach, which plays host to all sorts of games at low tide and provides hours of rock pooling fun at its western end. It’s not hard to see why Amroth beach was both the recipient of the Seaside Award (Resort) and given European Blue Flag Beach status in 2016.
In addition to its size, the beach at Amroth is also bursting with historic features. At exceptionally low tide you can see a fossilised forest that was eradicated when sea levels soared over 7,000 years ago, while petrified antlers, animal bones and Neolithic weapons and flints have been spotted as well. Like numerous Welsh towns and villages dotted throughout Pembrokeshire, Amroth was also once home to a Norman castle; the castle ruins are now sadly long gone, although a mock castle was built in the 18th/19th-century and still stands today.
Visitors staying in one of our Amroth holiday cottages on this special part of the Pembrokeshire coastline should not leave without seeing the delightful Colby Woodland Garden. Set within eight acres and famous for its colourful displays of rhododendrons and azaleas, Colby has a fascinating coal mining history and offers some truly stunning woodland walks, along with open-air theatre in the summer months, a breath-taking walled garden and a tea room - it’s the perfect place for heritage discovery and natural learning for all ages.
There are a couple of car parks in Amroth, one at the west end of the beach and the other in the village itself. The beach also allows easy access for the disabled, with specific parking along the seafront. These parking facilities enable visitors to reach Amroth’s wonderful selection of pubs, cafes and shops with ease.
