History

YHA Broad Haven was built in partnership with the Country side Commission (now the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park Authority) in 1980 to be used as a Youth Hostel. They had an information centre next door which is now our field study centre for visiting groups. The Youth Hostel is situated in the Pembrokeshire National Park, which is the only coastal National Park in the UK.

Meet the team

Manager Ruth recommends: Laughing, splashing, surfing and basking in the spray on the beach at St Brides Bay, with the sun on your face - what better way to spend a family mini break or holiday!
