One lucky winner has scooped a fantastic prize package by taking part in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s #ParkLife competition.
The National Park Authority teamed up with Pembrokeshire Tourism to offer the opportunity to win a luxury stay at the award-winning Y Garth 5* boutique bed and breakfast near Newport and a VIP tour of the Wickedly Welsh Chocolate Factory.
The competition asked people to share a photograph illustrating what they loved about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park on the Authority’s Facebook or Twitter page with the hashtag #ParkLife.
The winner, Helen Smith of Measham in the Midlands said: “We have been spending our summer holidays in Pembrokeshire for the last four years now. When we are there we spend most of our days outdoors visiting different beaches or walking our dogs along different parts of the Coast Path.
“We have also taken part in different National Park events such as pond dipping and rockpooling which the children have loved and we have all learnt so much from.
“We will definitely be back to Pembrokeshire for many more holidays and we can’t wait to enjoy our boutique stay at Y Garth bed and breakfast, which we know receives fantastic reviews.”
Helen’s photograph featured her husband and two children on the beach at Freshwater East, which she added was her favourite of all the ones she has visited so far.
The competition formed part of a national campaign to promote the National Park as a visitor destination.
National Park Authority Chairman Cllr Mike James added: “The Authority received more than 100 images from members of the public, featuring beaches, the Coast Path, stunning landscapes and people enjoying themselves around the National Park.
“We are delighted with the response and hope that people will continue to let us know what they value most about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park so we can continue to keep it special.
“We would also like to thank Pembrokeshire Tourism, Y Garth bed and breakfast and the Wickedly Welsh Chocolate Factory for their support in promoting the National Park and Pembrokeshire as part of this campaign.”
