The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in Wales has many enviable qualities. It’s home to Britain’s smallest city, the bijou St David’s with its elegant cathedral, some of the most splendid – bluer water than the Caribbean when the sun shines – coastline in Britain, and lashings of warm Welsh hospitality.
It’s also rich in mystical history. Clamber down the rocky steps near the village of Bosherston and you’ll come across a tiny chapel built into the cliff face. Built in the 14th century to honour the hermit St Govan who lived alone here during the 6th century, it’s a wonderfully atmospheric place. Staring out across the Atlantic as gulls wheel overhead, it’s not hard to imagine spending a lifetime here in quiet contemplation.
