Observing Bird and Wild Life

The most notable places are around Strumble Head and the islands of Ramsey, Skomer and Skokholm, but the whole coastline and many inland areas have much to offer.

From our grounds, guests have observed choughs, ravens, peregrines, buzzards, redpolls and goldfinches to name but a few. Seals and pups can be seen from September to November in the bays nearby.

History and Culture

Pembrokeshire is rich in history and culture. There are castles, burial chambers, stone rings and – of course – St Davids Cathedral and Bishops Palace to explore. St Davids Music Festival and Fishguard Festival are just two of the annual musical events nearby. Also close by are a cheese farm, woollen mills, potteries, agricultural museum and many other places of interest.
