This county is a magnet for anyone seeking the great outdoors
Pembrokeshire is perfect for the walking-poles-and-waterproofs retirement brigade who swear by the mantra that “65 is the new 45”.
Quite apart from the glorious coastal path, with its beaches and views of dolphins and whales, there is sailing, golf, fishing, riding and hillwalking in the Preseli Mountains.
The county holds regular summer events for the super-fit — the Tour of Pembrokeshire cycle race; Ironman Wales, when hundreds of competitors put themselves through unimaginable pain; and the Long Course Weekend, a triathlon held over three days.
Fit and outdoorsy older people seeking an active retirement are fuelling demand in the property market, so may have to show their competitive streak when house-hunting.
“Their story is always the same,” says Carol Peett from West Wales Property Finders. “Fed up with life in the city, they want to get fit in all the lovely places they visited on holidays.”
The housing stock is diverse, ranging from bungalows and cottages to farmhouses and grand Georgian residences. Location is all-important; a view of the sea carries a premium, although prices are far lower than other seaside retreats in, say, north Cornwall. Over the past year, the average price of a detached house in Padstow was £557,717, according to Rightmove. In Pembrokeshire it was £256,646………….. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/lets-retire-to-the-healthy-haven-of-pembrokeshire-8zsz3mj5w
