See & Do
Pembrokeshire offers a huge variety of activities from castles to theme parks, beaches to golf courses. It has abundant wildlife both on land and in the ocean and all set in the vicinity of The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only coastal National Park in Britain.
There are glorious beaches with huge tidal changes making it possible at times to wander around to a neighbouring bay (be tide aware though) wonderful hidden coves with rock pools and clean fine sand, wide, flat beaches ideal for children (and the larger children amongst us) and wild sea beaches for surfing. There are various sailing, surfing, coasteering and windsurfing schools in easy reach.
The coastal path covers 180 miles of spectacular scenery from mountains to moorland, valleys and woods and the occasional pub or restaurant for resting those weary legs or maybe hire a bike or go pony trekking, all are accessible from Newhouse Farm.
The castles are almost too numerous to mention, some are ruins and some are statuesque and whole but all are fascinating. Well worth a visit, even on a rainy day the atmosphere is almost tangible as you imagine what it would be like to live there.
Crafts such as Pottery, Basketmaking, Candle making, Woodcarving, Jewellery and Art are dotted around the lanes and in the towns where you can sometimes watch the craftsmen and women creating beautiful things. A particular delight is to go searching for an elusive gem deep in the countryside, you will be guaranteed to enjoy the search as you explore the lanes (taking care to avoid the tractors)
If it's towns and shopping that entice you then Tenby and Saundersfoot are only a short drive away with a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes, perfect if you like the hustle and bustle of a typical seaside town or take a trip to St Davids with its Cathedral to the north of the county where the landscape is more rugged. The nearest town is Haverfordwest with its castle perched on the hill.
There are theme parks and children's activities galore, again, all within easy reach or maybe a boat trip? Caldey Island is home to the Cistercian Monks and it is possible to visit the island, also to the nature reserve, Skomer Island where you might see Puffins, Seals and nearly half a million sea birds.
We have leaflets and brochures available for you to plan and plot your expeditions and we welcome your feedback for future guests, please ask if you need anything in particular and we will endeavour to supply it.
