Things to do in Pembrokeshire

Here are a few ideas for things to do around Pembrokeshire, when you’re staying here at Asheston Eco Barns:

Saints and Stones Tours
We’d recommend a Saints and Stones tour, exploring the Pembrokeshire’s Celtic Christian inheritance – either tour the sites yourself, or book a guide. We have included information in your room pack.

Marine Ecology Tours
Explore the county’s rich marine ecology with expert and lecturer Powell Strong, who knows a great deal about local whales, dolphins and seals, and where best to see them.

Archaeological Tours
Book an expert guide from Archaeotours to show you the archaeological highlights of the Landsker, and beyond, from castles and hill forts to chambered tombs and standing stones.

The Pembrokeshire Islands
The wild and uninhabited islands of Ramsey, Skomer, Skokholm, Caldey and Grassholm offer great walks, spectacular views and wonderful wildlife. If puffins, seals and exploring stunning coastal landscapes are your thing, the islands are a must.

You can skirt the islands on a boat trip, or take a ferry boat over to explore them on foot. Contact Haverfordwest Tourist Information Centre for an overview of your options.

Caldey Island
A pleasant boat trip from Tenby harbour takes you to Caldey Island, which is rooted deep in history. Inhabited by monks since the Golden Age of the Celtic Church, you can visit the monastery, watch the chocolate maker or explore the island on foot. Definitely one of our favourite Pembrokeshire days out!

Castell Henllys
Run by the National Park, Castell Henllys is a reconstructed Iron Age hillfort near Nevern, which delves into Pembrokeshire’s Celtic past. It includes replicas of Celtic round houses built on their original foundations. Great for kids.

The Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran, and Llangloffan Fen near Mathry
Enjoy a Pembrokeshire day out surrounded by nature – The Welsh Wildlife Centre and Nature Reserve, in Cilgerran, includes wildlife trails overlooking the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve. And don’t miss Llangloffan Fen nature reserve near Mathry, which is one of our personal favourites.
