Pembrokeshire has many attractions and places to visit, here is just a small selection of what is on offer:-
Penlan Uchaf Gardens, Gwaun Valley, Pembrokeshire
Penlan Uchaf offers peace and tranquillity in a unique location. With stunning views across the Preseli Hills in North Pembrokeshire the gardens offer a retreat from everyday life and are ideal as both a starting point or a rest point for the miles of walks situated in and around the Gwaun Valley.
Enhance your visit with a tea and home baked cake or soup served with roll and cheese, all served in the conservatory at the Farmhouse.
Nestled deep in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, there’s really no other place like it.
Step back in time at Castell Henllys, a unique Iron Age hill fort recreated with fantastic replica Iron Age roundhouses, built right on top of the excavated remains of an existing hill fort, dating back 2,400 years.
A Scheduled Ancient Monument, Castell Henllys is one of many prehistoric promontory forts in the National Park dating to around 600BC, but the only one where you can actually go inside a roundhouse and grind flour and make bread just like the Celts used to!
Strumble Head Lighthouse
Strumble Head Lighthouse stands imposingly on Ynysmeicl (St. Michael's Island), an islet to the west of Fishguard, separated from the mainland by a very narrow gap through which the sea boils and froths in stormy weather.
The station was built in 1908 by Trinity House for the greater safety of sea traffic between Ireland and the new Fishguard Harbour which is located behind cliffs and a breakwater three miles to the east. The new light also formed a link with the existing South Bishop light, 18 miles to the south-west. This stretch of coast is very dangerous, and some 60 vessels are known to have been lost along it in the 19th Century alone.
Tregwynt Woollen Mill
Melin Tregwynt is a delightful white washed wool mill to be found in a remote wooded valley on the Pembrokeshire coast. There has been a mill on this site since the 17th century, when local farmers would bring their fleeces to be spun into yarn and woven into fine Welsh wool blankets. Owned by our family since 1912. it now employs around 20 people.
Solva Woollen Mill
Established January 31st 1907, Solva Woollen Mill is the oldest working Woollen Mill in Pembrokeshire. Solva is now the only mill in Wales specialising in flat weave carpets, rugs and runners. This family business with over 100 years weaving expertise uses traditional skills and 19th century looms to create beautiful flooring to suit any interior. Recent commissions include rugs for Llwynywormwood, Prince Charles'’ Welsh residence, historic reproduction flooring for stately homes in USA and we are pleased to have been a supplier of rugs to The Landmark Trust properties for many years. Visitors are welcome to watch the looms at work and browse in the mill shop
St. Davids Cathedral
Since the 6th century there has been a church on this site. For the past 1500 years prayer and worship has been offered to God on a daily basis which continues to this day.
Golf Courses, Newport and Letterston
Newport Links is situated in Pembrokeshire's Coastal National Park. We are just a 2 minute drive from the wonderfully picturesque town of Newport, nestled under Carningli (Mountain of the Angels) on the Nevern Estuary.
The present owners acquired the club in 1998, with a vision to transform the small club with a major investment in a comprehensive redevelopment of the clubhouse and accommodation to 4 star standard with comfortable modern facilities.
The golf course itself was also thoughtfully upgraded when in 2008 the addition of a further 9 holes was completed, to bring the Newport easily up to a comparable standard with the best links courses in the UK.
Gwaun Valley Brewery
Gwaun Valley Brewery is a family-run business with beautiful views of the Preseli Hills. On brewing day, you can see the brewers at work, smell the malted barley and hops and, best of all, taste the finished product - Real Ale made from wholesome ingredients and pure spring water.
