Explore the Pembrokeshire coastal path from the hostel’s front door, or at low tide, walk the half mile over the sand to Little Haven with its quaint fishermen’s cottages and quayside. If you're feeling peckish, why not enjoy some food with a stunning sea view at our Haven's Beach Cafe?

The new larger Landpod sleeps up to 4 people, on two small double mattresses (one above the other) and a single futon mattress, which doubles up as the seating area. They’re even tall enough to stand up in! There is no heating in our Landpods.

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.

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!
