Top 10 Family Days Out In Pembrokeshire


  1. Folly Farm:  Folly Farm started life as a dairy farm. After noticing families stopping by the roadside to pet and watch their cattle, the Folly Farm founders decided to diversify into tourism. In 1988, Folly Farm was born. The former dairy farm was converted to receive visitors; now guests could stop to visit the Folly Farm cows and see them being milked. Over the last 25 years Folly Farm has grown with continued reinvestment. From exotic creatures to vintage funfair rides and adventure playgrounds, Folly Farm has something for everyone.
  2. Oakwood Theme Park: Full of fun and exciting rides for all the family. People come from all over the UK to this corner of Pembrokeshire as the rides at Oakwood are all amazing.
  3. Coastal Path: Pembrokeshire has the only coastal National Park in the UK. Deservedly rated among the best long-distance walking trails in the world, this path traces 186 miles of spectacular coastal landscape, dipping and climbing past sandy beaches, seabird rocks and cliff tops jewelled with wildflowers.
  4. St. David’s Cathedral: With a population of less than 2,000 people, St Davids is more than a quaint record-holder as Britain’s smallest city. The magnificent cathedral has been a place of pilgrimage since the 12th century and there are several other attractions of artistic and culinary kinds.
  5. Tenby: A Victorian seaside town with picture-postcard qualities, the rise of Tenby came with ringing medical endorsements for its health-giving properties. It remains a major attraction for young and old. The monastery on Caldey Island, just a short boat ride from Tenby, is also well worth a visit.
  6. Carew Castle: There’s a unique feel to Carew Castle. Its unusual setting has something to do with it, overlooking a millpond measuring over 23 acres. Its subsequent gentrification as a rather splendid Elizabethan country house demonstrates the rich and colourful heritage of the castle, which has recently undergone major renovation.
  7. Stackpole Nature Reserve: A beautiful stretch of coastline offering varied attractions including stunning beaches like Barafundle Bay, contrasting with the picturesque Bosherston Lakes near Stackpole Court. There are plenty of activities including kayaking and coasteering, as well as plenty of delicious local produce to sample in the Boathouse at Stackpole Quay.
  8. Manor House Wildlife Park: Anna Ryder Richardson’s Wild Welsh Zoo as featured on ITV Wales. Animals include lemurs, gibbons, zebras and marmosets all roaming with lots of space. You can feed the wallabies in their vast area and mingle with a lot of the animals.
  9. Skomer: Early to mid-July is the best time to see the puffins of Skomer, which breed on this two-mile-long island in their thousands before leaving for the North Atlantic in August.
  10.  Coasteering: Accompanied adventurers as young as eight can don wetsuits, helmets and old trainers to climb, swim and splash their way around rocks, sea caves and lagoons.
