Pembrokeshire Coast and Brecons, Wye and Gower
Pembrokeshire Coast is, as the name suggests, a superb coastal National Park. The Brecon Beacons are four magnificent ranges of mountains. The Gower is a stunning peninsula know for its sandy beaches. The Wye Valley is home to Tintern Abbey, inspiration to the Romantic poet William Wordsworth.
