    Not a novel, but can I add Ann Lockley's autobiography Island Child about growing up on Skokholm in the s and later in other parts of Pembrokeshire. It's a lovely gentle read and really brings the island . At Falcon Boats, we share a love and passion for the Pembrokeshire coastline, with a sense of kinship with our land. We know every nook and cranny of the coast, every rock where seals haul out to bask in the sun, where the porpoise feed at the turn of the tide and every emerald cave.

    The abundance of anchorages along the National Park Coastline and the Nature Reserve Islands is not the only attraction that Pembrokeshire offers. Famous for its seabird and sea life; manx shearwaters, puffins, seals, dolphins, porpoise plus much more inhabit the waters.   An entire island off the coast of Pembrokeshire is on sale for £, – less than the cost of a one-bedroom flat in London. Stack Rock Fort is a Grade-II listed fortification built between.

    St Martins Bay on the east of the Island or Tean Sound on the west, offer great visitor moorings. St Marys’ Hugh Town, the capital of the Scillies is ideal for lunch at the Mermaid then a spot of shopping and victualling. Padstow & Lundy Island are on route from Neyland to the Scillies and are a great place to stop at on your cruise.
