Adventure - Pembrokeshire's reputation for adventure activities has grown by leaps and bounds (literally!) in the last decade. TYF Adventure, based in St Davids, has pioneered the crazy sport of throwing yourself in the sea just to get to the other side - they call it 'coasteering'. They will also take you and/or the family or pals out climbing, kayaking or surfing round the dramatic islands and caves. Sealyham Activity Centre offers rock and rope climbing, archery and mountain-biking. There are Surf schools at Newgale and Whitesands, and kite-surfing is offered by Big Blue at Newgale as well. For some of us, though, it is adventure enough to just sit on the beach and watch the daring ones ride the wind and the waves!

Recommended Places to Visit: The Pembrokeshire islands attract many with the romance of wild remote places. Caldey has a monastery and ancient settlement set in a tranquil valley, but it also has a lovely beach and a fascinating human history. The other islands are nature reserves where, in season, seals, seabirds and rare plants can be seen at remarkably close quarters. Skomer is thrilling to visit when thousands of Puffins and other seabirds are breeding in mid-summer, and when acres of Bluebells or Pink Campion wash it in brilliant colour. Skokholm and Skomer together are home to the largest colonies of Manx Shearwaters in the world. Evening boat-trips in summer go out to see the thousands of birds returning to their islands at sunset. Ramsey is an RSPB reserve with dramatic cliffs and an ancient rugged landscape, renowned in Welsh mythology. There you can see breeding seabirds, and in late summer, grey seals and their pups on the beaches. It has wild Ravens and red-billed Chough as well as introduced Rabbits and Red Deer. It is a superb wild place with glorious seascapes, and on a good day, you can see the mountains of Eire on the far horizon. Kayakers know Ramsey for the wild water of the Bitches in Ramsey Sound where the tide changes direction twice a day and roars through like a waterfall. All the islands can be reached by scheduled boat services, an adventure in their own right, with a chance to see porpoises and very occasionally other cetaceans too. Special off-shore trips are offered out of Martins Haven and St Justinians to look for whales and dolphins, and specialist charter companies take divers out to the Marine Nature Reserves around Skomer and Skokholm and other sites around Ramsey or Grassholm.
Annual Events: This is a county for all seasons ...... washed on three sides by the warming Gulf Stream, its climate is mild, so that spring comes early, while winter arrives late. Rainfall is low compared to the rest of Wales, and the coast has more sunshine hours. Gardens are colourful all year, and sunny days in even mid-winter bring warmth to sheltered spots on the cliffs.
Recommended Places to Eat Out: As you would expect in a county that welcomes visitors and enjoys the good life there are plenty of good places to eat or drink. Quaint old villages and the busier old towns have a wealth of pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from. Closest to Ffynnongron is the Cross Inn, just an easy one mile stroll with a good selection of wines and beers, and pub menu featuring local produce. If you don't want to venture out then you have the option to employ our in-house chef who will prepare exactly what you want from buffet-style to silver service with quality locally sourced produce.
