Saundersfoot is a wonderful place to stay, enjoy and explore!

It is a pretty seaside village with local shops, a working fishing harbour and a blue flag beach.

Saundersfoot also has excellent access to Coppet Hall beach, Glen beach and Wiseman’s Bridge.

Saundersfoot Harbour was originally built to transport coal from the mines in Stepaside, the old tramway is still visible today and forms part of the coastal path connecting Saundersfoot to Coppet Hall and Coppet Hall to Wiseman’s Bridge.

There are many local businesses in the streets of Saundersfoot. Elements of Pembrokeshire, on the strand sells a wide range of handmade products which are all locally made in Pembrokeshire. Christkindl on the high street has a selection of lovely homeware, children’s toys, and gifts as well as local prints from Dilys Photography. Chobbles is a traditional sweet shop situated on the strand where you can step back in time and discover chocolates and sweets from the past.

You are spoilt for choice with eating out in Saundersfoot, The Royal Oak is great for delicious pub grub and The Stone Crab serve amazing seafood, but you’ll need to make sure you book into here as tables go very fast! Tucked away right on Saundersfoot beach is The Sail, serving teas, coffees and a bite to eat. For fine dining you’ll find Coast situated right on Coppet Hall Beach. Coast is an award-winning restaurant with three AA rosettes and the perfect place to take in the seaside views. Cwlbox is a converted street food horsebox situated right on the coastal path where you walk from Coppet Hall to Wiseman’s Bridge – their bang bang prawns aren’t to be missed! Just outside of Saundersfoot, in Pentlepoir, is Lokky’s an Asian inspired cuisine and family run restaurant with plenty of parking.
