Things to do

Attractions near your holiday rental in Pembrokeshire

If you're looking to give the kids a Pembrokeshire ride they won't forget, the rip-roaring attractions at Oakwood Theme Park could be the perfect thing. There's hair-raising Megafobia – the clue's in the name – and soaring Drenched, a log flume that clocks up 100 vertical feet.

Of course, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is another must – you can choose between wild walks and sunny bays for surfing.


Things to do near Pembrokeshire holiday homes

Whether you're bouncing on a RIB across the salt-spraying waves of the Celtic Sea in search of dolphins and porpoises, hiking the wind-battered coastal paths to find hidden coves, or simply sitting by the fireplace of your Pembrokeshire holiday rental, watching a storm unfold over Ramsey Island, this untamed Welsh county is sure to reveal its wilder side. Sea kayaking and camping, picnics on the cliffs and rock climbing up the limpet-dotted crags can also be on the menu. It's a real outdoorsy heaven.


Local weather during your stay in Pembrokeshire holiday homes

Don't be put off a trip to Pembrokeshire during the wet and wild winter months between November and March. You can cosy up in hearty country cottages and Welsh farmhouses to watch the roaring waves and coastal storms. For beach-worthy conditions, it's probably best to hold off until June, when the summer kicks in, through to August, magnetising spade-touting families to the Pembrokeshire holiday rentals close to Barafundle Bay and other award-winning sands. Spring – in April and May – and autumn – in September and October – can be perfect for hikers hitting the coast trails.

Natural features

Pembrokeshire means majestic coastlines

Inland Pembrokeshire is never really in the limelight. It's handsome, though, with the rolling Preseli Hills and their haunting standing stones, Iron Age remains and grassy meadows. It's just that the coast here is so darn gorgeous that it's the guaranteed star of the show. It's virtually entirely enclosed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which runs for 100s of miles from the wide bays of Tenby and Saundersfoot to the high cliffs of Moylgrove. Along the way, it encompasses islets like Ramsey – a birding reserve – and eye-watering inlets like Barafundle Bay. Dolphins, porpoises and seals abound.
