Traveller’s Guide to Pembrokeshire

I’m delighted to see that Newport is highly recommended in the Condé Nast Traveller’s Guide to Pembrokeshire. They have this to say about the town:

“It doesn’t look like much as you drive through, but little Newport – not under any circumstances to be mistaken for its city namesake – is the discreet holiday hideaway of well-heeled Welsh speakers, and English money looking for something less obvious than Cornwall or Sandbanks. There are hardly any visual clues; it’s the absence of things that gives the game away – no tat-shops, football tops, or lagery crowds. Instead, there are superb pubs and restaurants, a first-rate butcher and fishmonger and, tucked half-a-mile down from the main drag, a delightful boat-bobbing estuary. A drink at the boat club, as the sun goes down, begets the satisfying glow of knowing you’re in precisely the right place. “
