Trefechan Wen lies close to the hamlet of Llanwnda on the rugged north coast of Pembrokeshire. Goodwick is at the bottom of the hill and Fishguard is on the far side of the bay. Further afield are the City of St David’s with its famous Cathedral, the wildlife islands of Skomer and Ramsey, renowned for their seals, birds and wildflowers, and Cardigan with its newly restored castle and the Teifi Marshes and wildlife centre.

Walking

Pembrokeshire has a variety of majestic landscapes: 186 miles of superb coast path; the Preseli Hills, source of the bluestones of Stonehenge; the Cleddau estuary, a maze of wooded tidal inlets. All these areas are easily accessible for walkers. There are routes to suit all inclinations, from strolls out of Trefechan Wen to all day hikes for the hardy.

Beaches

Pembrokeshire boasts over 50 beaches from wide sandy stretches such as Whitesands and Newport to tiny coves like Abercastle or Pwllgwaelod. Many beaches are dog friendly but some of the larger ones have dog-free zones during the summer months.

Wildlife

Take a trip round the Islands to spot seals and puffins or sit at Strumble Head to watch the dolphins, porpoises and gannets. Have a go at identifying wildflowers or butterflies. Keep a look out for Peregrines and Red Kites and spot the seal pups in our coves below Llanwnda in the autumn. There’s plenty to interest everyone.

Outdoor pursuits

Kite surfing, kayaking, coasteering, fishing, sailing, climbing, riding, cycling; Pembrokeshire does it all. Local companies provide courses for all levels or you can do your own thing.

Heritage

Pembrokeshire wears its long history in its landscape. From ancient stones and burial mounds on the skyline, via former industrial sites tucked away in Porthgain, to the majestic Cathedral in St David’s.
