 Llangwm is named as one of the best places to live in the UK in a recent Sunday Times survey

 

Whoever gave the Cleddau Estuary its nickname, "the secret waterway", wasn't joking - many of the holiday makers who flock to Tenby and Saundersfoot every summer are blissfully unaware of the delights to be found on its shores - but now the game is up. Sori (sorry).

The Cleddau Estuary is barely visible from a road, or even from the air, thanks to the wartime efforts of the Ministry of Defence, which planted non- reflective water weeds on its banks to deny the Luftwaffe a shiny signpost to the shipyards at Pembroke Dock.

However, for those lucky enough to live here, villages such as Lawrenny, Liangwm, Landshipping, Carew and tiny Cresswell Quay offer a waterside idyll of rare charm and tranquillity. The mudflats provide rich pickings for wading birds, and you'll often spot seals and otters In the water. Stick around on a summer evening and you'll probably also see kayaks and paddleboards weaving their way Io the Cresselly Arms for a pint of Quay Ale and a packet of crisps. Llangwm and Landshipping are beautiful, vibrant little communities, but Lawrenny is our favourite. It has a waterside pub in the Lawrenny Arms, and Quayside is an award-winning tearoom; both are reached via a footpath with panoramic views. There's also a community shop, open for a few hours most days, although residents get a keycard, so they can pop in whenever they want.
