Things to do
There are great outdoor activities on our doorstep. We are close to the Preseli Hills, a superb area for walking and cycling. It’s known as Bluestone Country because the Preseli Hills are where the Stonehenge bluestones are believed to have come from. Great tracks for mountain biking as well. Activities in our area also include fishing, kayaking and horse riding.
Beaches and Islands
Pembrokeshire is famous for its beaches and a spectacular coastline. We are very central, whether you want to visit the popular beaches to the south, such as Tenby and Saundersfoot, or the many beautiful unspoilt bays to the north and west.
A visit to, or a trip around, one of Pembrokeshire’s islands such as Skomer is high on the priority list for most visitors … whether you want the peace and tranquillity of bird-watching or seal-spotting, or the excitement of a jet-boat trip. Other water sports include surfing, wind surfing, sailing, diving and coasteering. Check out award winning coasteering at: Celtic Quest Coasteering and Board Games Surfing
For the child in you (or with you!) we are close to Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo, Manor House Wildlife Park and Heatherton as well as a wide range of other attractions for all ages.
For those who prefer a little retail therapy, our local market town Narberth has a great reputation for the quality of its shops. On every visit there seems to be another shop opening, and you’ll find art and craft galleries, an excellent antiques market, a very fine deli and many small shops selling everything from designer clothes to handmade chocolates. Check out the West Wales Antiques Guide for more ideas.
Arts and Crafts
Pembrokeshire has always been a magnet for artists, with its unique quality of light, spectacular coastline and breathtaking landscapes. Countless painters, sculptors, craftspeople and photographers have been inspired by the county’s beauty and relaxed way of life. You can spend many happy hours browsing through galleries, workshops, and studios – and be assured, you’ll receive a warm welcome wherever you go. Pembrokeshire Art & Craft Guide is a good starting point.
Finally, Pembrokeshire is renowned for the quality of its food – seafood landed locally, cheese-making and lots of small organic farms where people have a huge commitment to producing the best food in a sustainable way. This means that you can buy good food locally at Farmers’ Markets or from farm shops, and you will find local menus at many of the restaurants and pubs. Check out the Pembrokeshire Food Guide.
