Why Pembrokeshire?


In Pembrokeshire we are spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see, explore and experience. Here is just a small sample of things that we think are top the very long list of Pembrokeshire moments.

At Glasfryn Escapes we are mere minutes from the exquisite Pembrokeshire Coast National Park for you to enjoy in all its glory. It can be sampled very simply by walking any of it’s 186 miles, encompassing sheer cliffs, secluded bays and amazing beaches.

We also think that some of the best ways to experience the wonder of the National Park is to be ‘IN’ it and ‘ON’ it!
Celtic Quest Coasteering offer award winning coasteering session from the unique Abereiddi beach. Celtic Quest offer an unrivalled coastal exploration experience for guest of all and any ability exploring rocks, caves, waves and jumps. They also give the opportunity for you to sample the Blue Lagoon (Llyn Glas) where the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series held a diving competition in 2012, 2013 & 2016.

At the old quay down in Lower Town Fishguard, the Kayak-King can show you the secret bays and caves along the coast from sea level. Your trip will surround you with scenes you can only get from a kayak, all with the safety of a highly experienced team of friendly guides. You may even come up close and personal with some Pembrokeshire wildlife like spider crabs, seals and a plethora of sea birds.

Board Games Surfing, it’s in the name! Libby can put together fantastically fun sessions for you on boards; be this learning the basics of surfing, so being able to stand up and catch your first waves at the epically long Newgale or getting to your feet (or knees) on a Stand Up Paddle board (SUP) to search the tranquil sights and sounds of Fishguard Bay.

Once you’ve expelled you energy, whether that be from sightseeing, exploring or relaxing you’ll need refuelling. Here are just a few of our recommendation for you to savour. The Cafe on the Quay at Lower Town Fishguard has super fresh crab and lobster to enjoy straight after your kayaking or SUPing escapades around Fishguard Bay.

The Ffrwn (meaning, oven) located up the in the town of Fishguard offers a different dining affair, in an old church hall, converted into a relaxed, multinational, bakery/eatery. Here you can try traditional Welsh ‘Oggies’ (Pasties) and French style Crepes with a selection of savoury and sweet options.

And one of our favourite restaurants also having a relaxed, social and cosy environment is the Canteen, in Newport. At the Canteen they serve local beers alongside simple but super tasty and reasonable food like; pizza, burgers and salads. Our go to, is the ‘Welsh Italian’ pizza and skin-on fries.

We are lucky in Pembrokeshire that there are so many amazing and special businesses, people and scenery for people to see, do and explore that we couldn’t possibly list all of them here.
