The YHA owns some of the most spectacularly situated coastal properties in the country, but this is without doubt one of its best – a remote whitewashed house that overlooks the Pembrokeshire coast from a dramatic clifftop perch. The name of the hostel ('Pwll Deri') means 'Pool of Oaks' – a great name for a hostel which looks out over 400-foot cliffs into the deep St George Channel.
There are only 28 beds, divided between seven crisply painted rooms, but you get to choose between small dorms or cosy private rooms. You should note that none of the rooms are accessible for those in a wheelchair, as there is a step from the reception to the ground floor facilities. It's self-catering only (nearest shops are six miles away in Fishguard), while the lounge and a lovely dining room boast the most stunning views. Sunsets are pretty special here and on good nights quite a crowd gathers to watch the sky painted red.
But if the house and location is not enough to lure you, maybe the outdoor activities will. There are some amazing beaches to the south – for example at Whitesands Bay, which is one of the UK's best surfing spots. In fact this whole Pembrokeshire coastline has a stunning series of beaches, and Pwll Deri makes a great seaside holiday base. Or you're just 500 yards from the 186-mile-long Pembrokeshire Coast Path – don't miss the walk north to Strumble Head with its spectacular lighthouse and edge-of-the-world feel.
