Broad Haven has been one of the most popular beaches in Pembrokeshire since the 19th century with both visitors and locals alike, largely on account of its nearness to Haverfordwest (approx. 10 kms away). A large, west facing, open expanse of beach, it is hemmed in at each end by cliffs which attract geologists from all over Britain because of their unique features. These include a number of stacks, the most impressive of which is Den's Door at the north end of the beach, with two arches through its base. Also of interest is the intense folding and shattering of the cliffs, and the huge 'whaleback' rock known as the Sleek Stone, again at the north end of the beach. When visiting these features, be careful not to get cut off by the incoming tide. Broad Haven is a popular bathing beach, and can also attract sail boarders and surfers when conditions are suitable. There are good views across to the St. David's Peninsula on clear days. The beach is a winner of a Tidy Britain Group Seaside Award (Rural Beach) in 1999, and the water quality is good (complies with EC mandatory standard). Water quality results are displayed by the access point at the south end of the beach
The Village Hall is 125 years old and is well used by the community. It regularly accommodates fitness classes, meetings, Brownies, Playgroup and line dancing to name a few! It is also an excellent venue for events such as birthday parties, live music, art exhibitions, craft fairs, barn dances, race nights and even weddings!
The main hall has a capacity for 100 people and has recently refurbished toilets (including a disabled toilet) and shower. There is also a back room which is available for hire for smaller events such as meetings. It is equipped with tables and chairs and crockery. Currently, the kitchen is not available for catering use except for teas and coffees. The Village Hall Committee is currently fundraising to replace the ceiling and lighting in the main hall which will aim to improve the ambience in the hall and also reduce the money spent on heating. Following that, we would love to replace the kitchen and make it up to standard so people are able to host events that need catering.
If you want to find out what is going on in the village hall, please contact us either on the details below, find us on Facebook – www.facebook.com/broadhavenvillagehall or we have information in the Havens Community Diary (Available to pick up from Broad Haven Post Office). We’re always looking for people to help fundraise or just to hold events in our hall so it gets used. If this is you, then please get in touch!
