Half Term in Pembrokeshire


Half Term in Pembrokeshire is great, although it is early in the year, and some attractions won’t be open yet, there are still lots of things to do. Half term will be here before you know it. – can you believe it!

We are lucky to live in a beautiful area, and thousands of people visit every year. Pembrokeshire is a fantastic place to visit all year round, so, if you live in Pembrokeshire, or are visiting this half term, here is the best of what to do…..

1. Blue Lagoon Wales

The Water Park of Bluestone Wales is open to the public too. You pay for a 3 hour session in the water park. Entry times and prices vary according to the time of year. They have special events too so check the website. You can pre book your tickets online too. Make sure you check the Supervision Policy too.

2. Folly Farm

It has been open at weekends throughout the winter, and opens on February 13th daily for the season. It is open 10am – 5pm. Lots of under cover fun as well as outdoor. Perfect day out rain or shine. See the only giraffes and lions in Wales. One of my very favourite places. Ever. Search Folly Farm on my blog for lots of posts about our visits. NEW! They now have Rhinos too!

3. Heatherton

Indoor play centre – Indianas. Great for tots and children up to ten years old. Lots of outdoor activities for kiddies aged 6+ You pay as you play – great because grown ups who do not want to do any activities do not pay!

4. The Creative Cafe – Narberth & Haverfordwest

Great for a couple of hours indoor fun, if the weather isn’t great. Paint your own pottery. It is a cafe too so you can have a drink or lunch while you work!

5. Annas Welsh Zoo

It is lovely to see animals in natural settings, you can walk amongst some of them too. The BEST tihng is that they now have tigers! You can’t walk with them though 😉 Great for a dry day but nothing undercover for a rainy day, except a hay barn. There are some undercover domes coming, I am not sure if they are open yet. Quite a lot of walking to see everything, but all is pushchair friendly.

6. Beaches

Saundersfoot and Tenby are family friendly and have toilets and cafes near by. Amroth is lovely for a seafront walk, but the top part of the beach is all pebbles. There are a couple of shops and cafes and a little pub. There are dozens more beaches around our county, it is great to go off and explore!

7. Walking

Pushchair friendly, flat walks are – Saundersfoot to Wisemans Bridge, through a couple of tunnels. There is only a pub and caravan site with a tiny shop there. Very pretty though.

Amroth up to Colby Woodland Gardens I think Colby Teashop is closed until the end of March, they have changed the website so I couldn’t find the times.

Stackpole Estate – around the walled gardens, through woodland, across headlands down to Stackpole Quay. The Walled Garden Cafe is closed until March but the gardens are open. The Boathouse at Stackpole Quay is open at the weekends in the winter.They serve the MOST incredible cream teas!

Nayland Cycle Path at Neyland Marina. A lovely walk alongside Westfield Pill Nature Reserve where you can see birds including swans, and if you are very quiet you may see otters. We have never seen any………… The Brunel Chandlery & Cafe serve the best coffee and food, on a nice day you can sit outside overlooking the Marina. GREAT baby changing facilities, just ask!

Pembroke – Along the mill pond it is beautiful. Park at the East End of the town and cut down to the water, walking towards the castle. Cross the road to walk around the foot of the castle, and make your way round to the Cornstore Cafe, a gorgeous cafe in the basement of a lovely home ware shop (shop on several floors, not pushchair friendly) NO baby changing – walk up to the Town Hall for changing facilities, in the Main Street.

I hope this post has helped you – please look out for many more posts about our lovely County. Have a great time in Pembrokeshire, there is so much to do here. Have you ever visited?



  1. Wow, sounds like there’s lots to do! It’s not somewhere I’ve ever thought of visiting but having read your post I think it would make a great family weekend away. Thanks for writing!

  5. Great round up of ideas for anyone looking for a bit of half term inspiration. The zoo sounds really good, but I think due to the time of year, I would be choosing the creative café lol 🙂

  6. Awesome, sounds like there’s loads of fun things to do! I’ve got a friend who often goes on holiday there, it sounds lovely x

  7. It sounds awesome. I am hopefully learning to drive this year so places like this will be accessible to me and my family. Will definitely put it on my “to visit” list.

  8. I love Pembrokeshire, it is one of my favourite places in the UK. I used to go out with a guy from there when I was in uni so we spent a lot of time there. My favourite place is Bosherston. We once saw two otters playing in the lilly pools and then sat on the lovely little beach there and didn’t see a soul. Beautiful.x

  9. Pembrokeshire is somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. I hope that maybe either this year or next we’ll make it there.
