Make it your mission to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

There is a reason this exquisite coastline was Britain's first and only coastal national park; it is ruggedly beautiful with coves and bays, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and inland hills. Not to mention an incredibly diverse range of wildlife. The National Park is large, at over 240 sq miles, but that doesn't mean you can't explore it...

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a much-loved national trail that runs from Amroth Castle for 186 miles along the coast to St. Dogmaels, displaying as it goes the incredible scenery of the south-western coastline. There is just about every type of maritime landscape to enjoy along the route, so pick a section to tackle and set off! You don't have to make it a challenge, go at your own pace, enjoy the views, breathe fresh air and return by public transport if you like. There are all sorts of services operating in the area to help you get the most out of your walk and one of these is called the Puffin Shuttle.

The Puffin Shuttle is a small but useful bus service that runs between Martins Haven, at the southern end of St. Bride's bay, round the coast and up to St. David's at the northern end. The service is organised by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park as an encouragement for people to explore the coastline. It runs year round, though in the winter season (between September and May) this is only twice a week, on Thursdays and Saturdays, with two return journeys which travel from Marloes to St. David's. This distance is only very slightly shorter than that of the summer timetable which operates daily with three return journeys between Martins Haven and St. David's.

The drive itself is around 25 miles, but there are stops along the way so you can decide on the length of your preferred walking route. St. Brides Castle is one of the main stops and visitors staying in this magnificent building often choose to catch the bus up to St. Davids – which is a drive of a little over an hour – and wind their way gently back to St. Brides. The views over St. Brides Bay are exquisite, and the Puffin Shuttle enables walkers to wander as far as they like without having to retrace their steps. Find the full time table online here >

The Holiday Property Bond could do as much for your quality of life as it has done for many thousands of families who have already invested. That's why we invite you to get in touch with us in any of these 3 ways and please don't forget our unique 'Money back promise' and 'interest free loan' options.


We're so confident you'll be delighted with HPB
that we offer you a 'Money Back Promise'!

In regular surveys, Bondholders tell us how happy they are with HPB holidays. That's why we feel confident in giving you the extra reassurance of our unprecedented 'Money Back Promise':

If you take your first HPB holiday within three years of investing and are not, for any reason, entirely happy, you can apply to cash in your HPB investment within 14 days of your return. Whatever the encashment value, the parent company of the issuer of HPB will make up any difference so that you get back the full amount of your original payment, including charges.

This offer applies to a holiday at any HPB owned property which is taken by at least one of the Bondholders themselves.

Full details of the offer will be provided before you invest.
