Activities & places to see

Ramsay island

The peace and quiet of the Pembrokeshire countryside surrounding our tipis provides the perfect setting for a relaxed and stress-free holidays. Pembrokeshire has got a lot to offer in terms of sight-seeing and if you are looking to venture further afield for a day trip there are scores of places to visit …from castles to beaches to art galleries to horse riding But if you are happy to simply kick-back and relax then provisions are available at the nearest shops in Fishguard 10 mins away by car.

Pembrokeshire is a popular tourist attraction and has much to satisfy a diverse range of tastes. There is far too much to list everything here but loads of information can be found at the Pembrokeshire Tourist Information Centres. Below are a few of our favorite things.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

One of the most spectacular coastal walks in the country and one of the most dramatic sections is all but a 30 minute walk from the site, Wild flower and Bird Watching around our land. With its national park and conservation areas, coastlines, offshore islands (teeming with puffins, razorbills, shearwaters, storm petrels and chough) and the Pembrokeshire hedges the area is a popular destination for nature lovers. Foxgloves, pink campion, snowdrops, woodland carpets of bluebells, gorses and heathers is but to name a few of the many flowers. These are also the hunting grounds for the buzzards and peregrine falcons that inhabit the area.

Seal and Whale Watching at Strumble Head Light House. September and October are the best months to see the pups, a nice early evening walk to the best seal watching beaches in the UK stopping to watch the sunset into the sea on the way back from Garn Fawr. You may even see some dolphins, porpoises, whales or basking sharks. Check the history behind Strumble Head Lighthouse at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strumble_Head_Lighthouse

Pembrokeshire has long been a haven for artists.

The large number of quality galleries and craft centres testifies this. Visit some of the galleries and sculpture gardens, spend a day learning how to throw pots or bring your paints or camera and find out why so many artists have drifted to this part of the world.
