Nearby Beaches:

The Parrog provides a delightful stretch of coastline. The Coast Path twists and turns its way round to the old lifeboat station, sometimes on the beach, at times on the road, and at one point crosses a fantastic causeway built of slates in a herringbone pattern.

Cwm yr Eglwys is a picturesque cove a short drive away. Overlooked by the remains of St Bynach's 12th-century church, the sheltered sand and shingle beach is a great family favourite.

Forget the car and take a ride on the Poppit Rocket - a daily coastal bus service running between Fishguard and Cardigan or the Preseli Walkers Bus to explore the magical Preseli Hills, dotted with prehistoric remains, which rise behind Newport Castell Henllys.

Castell Henllys Iron Age Village

Set within 30 acres of beautiful woodland and river meadows in the heart of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, 5 miles from Bank Terrace. As well as being home to expertly recreated Iron Age roundhouses built exactly where they would have stood more than 2,000 years ago, the natural surroundings are teeming with wildlife, such as otters, swallows, and bats. Dogs on leads are welcome, not inside the cafe, but on the verandah and outside seating areas. Although the roundhouses are the main attraction, Castell Henllys also has a Visitor Centre, which includes a shop and cafe, with interactive exhibitions, a children's play area, and a maze and riverside picnic site.

Fishguard And Day Boat Trips to Ireland

Situated in the midst of outstanding beauty that blends the allure of the sea, towering cliffs, the Preseli Hills, historic churches, ancient standing stones, ideal for gentle and challenging walks, surrounded by the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park.

Walk Dinas Island Coastal Path

The Dinas Island walk shows the Pembrokeshire coast at its best. Rugged and beautiful.

Enjoy a drink & meal at the Old Sailors said to have been in business for 500 years!.

Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill

Well worth a visit, just a short drive from Newport, in Castle Morris, a working mill with excellent cafe and shop. This mill has been on this site since the 17th century when local farmers would bring their fleeces to be spun into yarn and woven into splendid quality Welsh wool blankets.

A colourful coastline with heaps of history, the St. Davids peninsula has been a cultural hotspot for thousands of years. Discover the area's ancestry from Celtic life to Wales' patron saint.
