This year turned out to be the exception as we set off for our holiday in Pembrokeshire (South West Wales) in the middle of a heat wave. In fact (and I hate to say this) at times it was almost too hot and sunny.
The county of Pembrokeshire is home to the only coastal National Park in the UK. Some 186 miles of dramatic coastal scenery have been incorporated into the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, a National Trail which can be enjoyed in short sections or as a complete long distance hike. Our home for the week was a delightful little cottage nestled in a valley just a short distance from a particularly scenic stretch of the Coastal Path.
