The local area guide to living in Pembrokeshire

Situated in South-West Wales, Pembrokeshire epitomises the idyllic Welsh countryside. One of the county’s biggest attractions is Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which is named for its stunning coastline. With a range of historically important areas, including the castle where Henry VII was born, Pembrokeshire has a wide variety of activities available. The Oakwood Theme Park in particular draws thousands of travellers, with over 30 attractions there it is one of the UK’s top theme parks.

This beautiful scenery has led it to be the location of a number of popular films, such as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which included scenes shot in Freshwater West; Robin Hood, which was directed by Ridley Scott, and Snow White and the Huntsman, which used Marloes Sands.

And it’s not just the countryside that’s a sight for sore eyes. There are beautiful towns in the county ready to be explored, such as Tenby on Carmathen Bay, which is renowned for its colourful buildings. St David’s is the UK’s smallest city, while Pembroke Castle is not to be missed.

Information about the local residents

Pembrokeshire is a large county but sparsely populated. There are approximately 123,000 in the area, the majority of whom are White British (around 97%). The area is not particularly ethnically diverse, it has 0.8% of people who identify as White Irish, 1.4% who identify as White Other and the remaining 1% come from numerous ethnicities.

This leaves a lot of room for countryside and open space, but is also a factor in the unusually high house prices – which average at about £132,000 though this is still lower than many other regions of Britain. In comparison, the Welsh national average is £106,000. As a result, home ownership in Pembrokeshire is lower than average, at around 69.4%. Despite Pembrokeshire being a Welsh county, only around 30% of the residents stated that they have any knowledge of the Welsh language.

Nearby schools

Pembrokeshire has eight secondary schools, which are regularly reviewed and ranked according to the Welsh band systems. On a scale of one to five (with one being the highest), all schools fall into the top three bands. In 2013, all the schools’ rankings improved by one or more band. The majority of primary and secondary schools are not Welsh medium, though there are still several Welsh language schools.

Pembrokeshire has an above average rate of pupils receiving at least five GCSEs at grade A* to C. The area has managed to have all of its schools in the top three bands of Education rankings in Wales, with none falling into the lower two bands.

Getting around

Pembrokeshire doesn’t have any motorways, which adds to the rich greenery of the area but can be problematic for motorists. The nearest motorway, the M4, is around 46 miles away.

The county’s biggest town, Haverfordwest, is served by the A40. There are also regular train routes to Cardiff and Manchester – and from there you can catch a service to London or other major cities.

There aren’t a lot of public transport options available in the more rural areas, although the National Parks do operate buses around the grounds. Employees at the National Park are also provided with electric bikes.

Local shops

The biggest attraction in Pembrokeshire is its National Park and the surrounding greenery. There are also several picturesque buildings, including four stunning castles. One of which, Manorbier, was one of the filming locations for the BBC’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Hikers and bikers might find plenty to do, but shoppers might be disappointed. There aren’t many big shopping centres in the area, although the county town of Haverfordwest is home to Riverside Shopping Centre. There are however a number of gift shops and small, independent shops selling local produce.
