South Pembrokeshire Hunt

Hunt type: Foxhounds
Areas: Pembrokeshire
Country: Wales
Contact information may be out of date so has been hidden.
Hunt country: The country is mainly grass, some arable, and small farms which are reasonable to get about.

There are thick coverts of gorse and blackthorns. Small pastures and woodlands are punctuated by deep and trappy valleys, encompassed by Atlantic cliffs on the south and the Milford Haven estuary on the north west.
History: The Hunt dates from the 18th century. For two hundred years hounds have hunted the peninsular that makes up the hunt country. For a large part of those two centuries hounds have been kennelled at the Cresselly home of the Allen family.

It is recorded that John Bartlett Allen had a pack there in 1788. But for a few breaks, notably between 1888 and 1893, when the Mastership passed to Colonel Lort Phillips of Lawrenny, and between 1929 and 1933, when Lord Merthyr and his daughter The Hon Anne Lewis, were in command, hounds have remained at Cresselly, and are still there today.
