Holiday house by the sea, sleeps 10
We have found Newport a holiday heaven for many years.
The Parrog, the area of the town by the sea, is ideal for kayaks, sailing, crabbing, windsurfing, shrimping, swimming, and walking the coastal path. At high tide, the sea laps against the sea wall by the house; at low tide, you can wade across the channel to a big, sandy beach the other side of the estuary. There are other lovely beaches not far away.
The little town itself, 5 or 10 minutes walk from the Parrog, has good food shops and several pubs and restaurants, as well as a lovely church, a library, post office, stationers and chemist, and a brilliant hardware shop that sells wetsuits and inflatable dinghies.
Here is the town's website: www.newport-pembs.co.uk. Newport is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park: www.visitpembrokeshire.com. There is an excellent National Park information centre in the town.

- a golf course overlooking the bay www.newportlinks.co.uk.
