Broad Haven Beach

Well 2020 turned out to be a year the world will not forget in a hurry. Travel for leisure was severely limited. However we did find ourselves in Broad Haven in Pembrokeshire, Wales in mid March, just before the UK went into the first coronavirus lockdown.

Broad Haven Accommodation

For this trip we didn’t hire a motorhome. Instead we booked a 3 bedroom dog friendly property in the village of Broad Haven. The following is a link to the property website:

Broad Haven Holiday Let

It was a couple of minutes walk to the stunning blue flag Broad Haven Beach, which our Border Collie Archie loved as you can see from the images in this article. Since we had plenty of room my father even joined us for a few days. For those who want to visit Broad Haven with their motorhome or campervan you have a couple of options. If you require toilet blocks, electric hookup and other facilities your best option is probably Creampots Touring Caravan and Camping Park. It’s dog friendly but a little further inland. There is a back to basics option called Little Haven Campsite but it’s only suitable for those with small campervans and it does not have EHU (electricity).

Broad Haven Sunsets

Broad Haven is well known for its sunsets. The weather in mid March was mostly kind to us and we were able to watch and photograph a few sunsets whilst enjoying the beach with Archie. The beach is sometimes known as Broad Haven North. Confusingly there is another beach called Broad Haven on Pembrokeshire’s south coast, near the Bosherton Lily Ponds. Broad Haven North offers a wide expanse of sandy beach but only at low tide.

Dogs aren’t allowed on the northern end of the beach between May and September. Since this was March Archie could run free as much as he liked. At low tide you can actually walk to Little Haven Beach, much smaller but still worth a look.

Broad Haven – Where to Eat

For most of our trip we were self catering. During our visit regulations began to change and the local restaurants and cafe’s were forced to close but could still offer takeaways. We did buy coffees and one evening meal from The Ocean Cafe Bar and Restaurant. On our last evening we ordered takeaway pizza and pasta from Sunshine Italian. Both places are virtually next door to each other, facing the sea front.

Though Broad Haven was our base we did explore Pembrokeshire in some detail as you will see from the articles that follow.
