Once the centre of the area's coal-mining industry, Landshipping is now a quiet, unspoilt, secluded community of houses and farms, with a small country pub at its centre.

It is part of the famous Pembrokeshire National Park - Britain's first and only coastal National Park, overshadowed by its more populated coastal resorts of Tenby, Saundersfoot and St David's.

Visitors come for the tranquillity, peace, natural environment, for bird-watching, boating, cycling and riding holidays, or simply to get away from the more popular areas of the county.

Best seen from the water, Landshipping sits up-river of Picton Point and down-river of the historic Black Pool Mill.

The villagers form a close-knit community, coming together for the annual raft race and boat club events. Landshipping enjoys welcoming visitors who venture, tide allowing, to the village's slipway, by small boat or canoe.
