Our first stop of the day was at Pembroke, this is a pleasant walled town dating back over 900 years and is famous for its Norman Castle. Pembroke Castle is one of the most complete Norman Castles in the UK and was the birthplace of Henry V11 founder of the Tudor dynasty.
The town like many other high streets looks like it needs a little love and care but it appears there are plans afoot to make improvements in the near future. From Pembroke we drove the short distance to Buckspool Farm campsite near Bosherton. This is a traditional old campsite,a huge field, pitch where you like, facilities were minimal but it had a honesty shop for basics and a honesty box to put your pitch fees in. There was a large variety of vans and tents and the tent opposite us had a wood burner inside with a chimney out of the roof.
After lunch we walked through the fields and across the dunes to the absolutely gorgeous beach at Broad Haven South, a place you could easily spend all day.
From here we walked around all three ponds at Bosherston two of which at the correct time of year are covered in beautiful water lillies. The lakes are man made and are fed by springs from a natural underground reservoir. You can cross the ponds on narrow footbridges and at the head of one pond is an eight arch bridge.
