Our 2023 Wolseley Register Spring Rally is going to be held in the beautiful county of Pembrokeshire in Southwest Wales, arriving on Friday 21st April and departing on Monday 24th April.
** STOP PRESS! Our chosen hotel below is now full. **
Suitable trips out in the area:
Pembrokeshire is a county divided in two by the main A40 Trunk Road. To the North the Welsh culture is dominant and the Welsh language is widely spoken. The South of the county is different in its culture and English is the main language. Our 2023 Wolseley Register Spring Rally will be split into 2 suggested days of touring.
Wolseley Register Spring Rally Day 1.
Saturday’s suggested route is around the north of the county in a clockwise direction:
6 miles: first of all, drive from the motel to a local reservoir
15 miles: then take country roads leading to a magnificent bay where the village residents were sworn to secrecy (this will be revealed on the day)!
3 miles: arrive at one of the six prettiest villages in Wales.
3 miles: see the smallest city in Britain.
2 miles (optional): you can then drive to the westernmost point of Britain to the Lifeboat station.
15 miles: arrive at Fishguard which is historically important as a ferry port to Ireland.
12 miles: then travel north towards the Preseli Hills and arrive at a very special farm – not to be missed!
16 miles: finally drive back to the Motel, over the Preseli Hills and via scenic country roads.
The total distance for Day 1 is about 73 miles, and there are ample refreshment facilities available on the route.
Wolseley Register Spring Rally Day 2.
Sunday is Drive-it-Day, and we suggest a route around the south of the county in an anticlockwise direction.
9 miles: firstly, drive from the motel to Haverfordwest, the County Town of Pembrokeshire.
7 miles: see the marina at Neyland and also cross the famous steel box bridge that has a sad history.
2 miles: from Pembroke Dock drive on to Pembroke Town to see the Castle which is the birthplace of King Henry V11.
10 miles: then travel further along the magnificent coast to the historic walled town of Tenby which is a very popular holiday resort (we hope to arrange a special treat here!).
3 miles: to the beautiful seaside resort of Saundersfoot which is a real eye opener!
8 miles: to Pendine, which has 7mls of glorious level beach where many Land Speed records have been broken over the years, (we highly recommend a visit to the Motor Racing Museum).
5.5 miles: drive to Laughare, the birthplace and resting place of the famous poet, Dylan Thomas, author of “Under Milk Wood”, as well as an old castle and beach walk.
16 miles: finally, take the scenic country roads back to the Motel, after a journey of about 68 miles for Day 2.
We will prepare detailed route maps for these outings. however, you can choose your own routes or places to visit should you prefer.
We hope you will join us on our Wolseley Register Spring Rally around this fascinating and beautiful, quiet part of Wales!
