Located 2 miles out of St David’s, the Escape Room describes itself as an exciting 'crystal maze' style puzzle solving activity suitable for all the family come rain or shine.
Oh, McDonald had a farm, and a zoo, and a soft play area and the world’s biggest indoor vintage fair plus more…E-I-E-I-O. Folly Farm literally has something for everyone and with over 750 animals site (including Lions & Giraffes) you are guaranteed to have a fun and educational day out for all the family.
Celtic Quest Coasteering
If you’re getting wet, why not get wetter! Coasteering is the perfect activity to immerse yourself in the Wild West Wallian culture by jumping straight into the coastal deep end under the watchful eyes of professional guides at Celtic Quest. These dare devilling adventures starts at Abereiddy beach and finishes at the Blue Lagoon; famously used as the location for the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series (2012, 2013 & 2016). Celtic's mission is to make coastal exploration accessible to all (aged 5yrs+) so whether you’re after an adrenaline filled adventure they will tailor the activity to suit your needs and abilities.
Hangar 5 Trampoline Park
If your kids are bouncing off the tent walls, then take the rabble to Hangar 5 where they can bounce around to their hearts content. The trampoline arena is full of interconnected trampolines, angled walls, roll-over platforms, punch bags and more. They even have a Soft Play section which will delight the smaller members of the family. There's even something for the adults, you can relax and unwind with a cuppa and a slice of cake from their on-sight café which over looks the park whilst the kids let off steam.
The Riverside Haverfordwest
The Riverside is an innovative cultural centre in the heart of Haverfordwest, it features an impressive collection of artwork and books gifted from the National Library of Wales for your eyes to enjoy! Whilst the toddling member of the family is in the soft play reading corner, dig out a board game, sit in one of the cosey pods and sample one of Rose's slamming Mediterranean salads at the Ty Coffee Café.
Chocolate chocolate everywhere, so let’s all have a drink...Or so the saying loosely goes. Let's face it, the kids are going to be badgering you all day for a hot chocolate and that fresco powdered home brand milkark just isn’t cutting the mark. You've burnt the milk, misplaced the mugs and someone had the marshmallow midnight munchies!
Breath... picture this…You step into a cosy little café, nestled in a quaint harbouring village. You are welcomed with a woollen blanket, a hot water bottle and the kindest of smiles to warm the soul. You sit down with sweetest of hot chocolate cwtch'd in between the palms of your hands whilst share sea shanti stories... and of course, a Welsh cake or two. Sounds good hey!
Come find us, we'll wait with you whilst the storm blows over!
