A short distance from Newport, Pentre Ifan Neolithic burial chamber is on a hilltop site with stunning views over Fishguard Bay and the Preseli Mountains. Dating from around 4000 BC it consists of a tilted capstone, weighing 16 tons, perched on three uprights which together are the remains of a dolmen type chambered tomb. The Post Code is SA41 3TZ and the walk to the chamber is well sign posted.

Neighbourhoods

Porthgain and its harbour lie just a few miles north of St David’s, within the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park‘s Conservation Area. This small coastal hamlet was once a small commercial harbour. The Post Code is SA62 5BN. here is relatively easy (though quite steep) access to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from both sides of the harbour, one of the most popular walks being along the path to Traeth Llwyn (a great beach with interesting rock formations, owned by the National Trust) and the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy. The blue lagoon is actually a product of the unsuccessful slate quarrying venture at the beginning of the 19th Century. The slate turned out to be inferior to the North Wales product and the venture collapsed. The rock between the quarry walls were blown up and the sea rushed in to create the Blue lagoon. It has a very well-known Bistro & Wine Bar called The Shed, formerly the machine house of the adjacent brickworks and a popular pub called The Sloop Inn going since the middle of the 18th Century. The pub which was originally a very small single storey fisherman’s pub (possibly even a smugglers haunt) which has been sympathetically extended to cope with the number of customers.
