Fun, family staycations

Popular places for families with younger children include Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park. And if you’re travelling with teenagers, Oakwood Theme park is a must.
Activity and adventure holidays

Ramsey Island, an RSPB reserve, is just off the coast from us here at Rhosson Ganol. Skomer and Skokholm islands are also worth a visit and are home to thousands of seabirds, including the quirky puffin. On your way there and back, look out for seals, dolphins, sunfish and sharks.
Wild walking holidays
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of the most famous walking trails in the world. It’s no exaggeration to say that the views along the Coast Path are nothing short of breathtaking. While some serious hikers decide to complete the entire path, most walkers simply pick a section or two for a spectacular stroll. Luckily for us, the St Davids Head section where we are situated, just so happens to be one of the most beautiful!
