Tip Of The Day: Check Out Pembrokeshire's Fish Week

03/06/2010 23:27 | Updated 22 May 2015

One place I can really recommend for a family holiday is Pembrokeshire in Wales. We went last year and it was just lovely - beautiful beaches, cute villages and gorgeous scenery.

And if you saw the recent film version of Robin Hood with Russell Crowe, then you might have spotted Freshwater West Beach in Pembrokeshire, which was the setting for battle scenes. This picturesque beach has also been used for filming the latest Harry Potter movie.

I suspect that the volcanic ash will put many people off flying to their holiday destination this year, and UK-based holidays will be more popular than ever.

So if you're going away at the end of this month, here's news of some special events your family might enjoy in Wales. The week lasting from 26 June to 4 July has been dubbed Pembrokeshire Fish Week, and this seriously fishy festival will be celebrated with activities ranging from gourmet tastings to cookery demos and talks, island rambles, adventure watersports and many more coastal activities.

There'll be a Celebrity Masterclass with chef Valentine Warner, presenter of the BBC series 'What to Eat Now', and new events include coasteering and foraging at the beautiful cliffs of Abereiddi, followed by a fish broth on the beach and a cookery course with Welsh chef Angela Gray.

There are also guided river kayak trips, eco-fishing adventures, angling competitions, windsurfing and sailing sessions, while children can enjoy crab-catching, snorkel safaris, beach activity days and seaside-themed art and craft sessions.
