Little Haven is located on the southern shore of St Brides Bay, situated in the heart of Pembrokeshire, the most westerly county in Wales. The Pembrokeshire Coast is renowned for its beautiful unspoilt beaches, rugged cliffs and fabulous views. Along this coast are several small villages such as Solva, Nolton, Little Haven and Marloes.

Little Haven is at the mouth of a wooded valley opening onto a small sandy beach at the head of a small cove. The village could have been built with relaxation in mind with three pubs, a bistro, a cafe, a craft shop and pottery, the RNLI Souvenir shop and a gallery. The village hall is a frequent venue for craft fairs and exhibitions. Little Haven was originally a coal (culme) mining village but has been a popular holiday destination for more than 100 years.

In the summer months the village focuses on the sea, watersport can be enjoyed from here or nearby Broad Haven, a 10 minute walk. Visitors can also participate in the annual Regatta or try their hand at building a raft for the August Bank Holiday raft race, both un-missable events.

Settlement in or around the village dates back to the Iron Age and Little Haven’s timeless link to the sea is also reflected in the stationing of an RNLI lifeboat in the village, the first station was established in 1882 and now there is a state of the art inshore rescue boat stationed in the village manned by volunteer crew living locally.

The village is also home to Little Haven Rowing Club who row Pembrokeshire Longboats, a modern craft based on a traditional design.

The Coastal Footpath passes Waterloo Cottage and the Puffin Shuttle coastal bus service has a stop at the front in Little Haven.

Broad Haven is 1/2 a mile over the hill from Little Haven and has a Londis Minimarket with a Post Office, two pubs (both doing food), The Ocean Restaurant and Cafe, two further cafes with takeaway fish & chips etc. Broad Haven beach is blue flag and is supervised by RNLI Lifeguards during the summer season.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is easily accessible from Little Haven, the two mile long sandy beach at Newgale is a 20 minute drive, as is the delightful village of Dale. Further afield the City of St Davids, home of Wales’ Patron Saint is a 40 minute drive, as is the biggest theme park in Wales at Oakwood. Haverfordwest, the county town of Pembrokeshire is 15 minutes by car and provides Banks, Cinemas, Shops and other facilities.
The south of the county is accessible via the Cleddau toll bridge.
