Welcome to Newport Pembrokeshire
An attractive, bustling coastal town between Fishguard and Cardigan on the A487 road. It boasts both a Norman Castle and Church, which stand proudly above this small medieval town on the slopes of Carn Ingli mountain. Ancient streets and pathways lead directly to the river Nevern (Nyfer) Estuary teeming with wildlife.
Circular walks from the town lead the visitor to the heights of Carn Ingli (Mount of Angels) with splendid vistas to Snowdonia, the Wicklow Mountains and St. David's Peninsula. Descend from the heights to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with its abundance of wild flowers and secret sheltered coves.
Uniquely situated at the edge of the enchanting Preseli Hills, Newport is an ideal centre for touring the many ancient Celtic monuments to be found in the Welsh-speaking area of the National Park. The Welsh name, Trefdraeth, can be translated to 'town by the beach' - a long, golden stretch of sand protected by craggy headlands. Ideal for swimming, windsurfing, sailing and canoeing, other activities to be enjoyed here are golf, tennis, horse-riding, cycling, fishing and birdwatching. The town has a variety of shops, numerous art galleries, craft shops, antique shop, books shops and coffee shops. Pubs and restaurants provide extensive menus, including locally caught sewin, lobster and crab. Accommodation is varied and plentiful.
Visitors return time and time again to this picturesque little town to enjoy the peace and tranquility of its ancient, winding lanes, the exhilaration of superb coastal views and the warmth and hospitality of its residents.
