Stuff for kids/teens

We are going to St David's for a week in a cottage next week...we love walking but have a 14 yr old daughter that doesn't! We need to sweeten the blow by being able to take her and her 11 yr old brother out in the afternoons...any suggestions for places to go? We are a bit out of the way I know but any suggestions welcome...(leave her at home maybe??)

A few suggestions that our teenagers have enjoyed

Pentre Ifan near Newport. Impressively ancient.

Boat trip to Skomer, not sure when they start, but the puffins and flowers are stunning. More of a day long outing.

They have been filming scenes for the new Harry Potter film at Freshwater West beach this week, I think that has just finished but they are also shooting the Robin Hood film there as well with Russell Crowe. Fantastic sand dunes if there are no film stars around.

Castell Henllys, Reconstructed Iron age village near Newport.

Hello!

I grew up in Pembrokeshire and went to school in st Davids.

It's a lovely place, although you really don't appreciate it until you move away!

The only problem with Pembs is when it rains you are pretty much stuck.

Here's a few suggestions though:

http://www.heatherton.co.uk/

Go a "go Ape" style climbing place just been put in, and quite afew other things (altho about 1hrs drivefrom st davids)

plus Oakwood, although on principle won't go back there as blimmin macnamara (the owner) didnt even close the park as a park of respect when some poor girl fell off a ride a few years ago!

Twr y Felin is based in st Davids: http://www.tyf.com/

it's a place that takes you out coasteering and things like that, may need to book in advance though to make sure you get the day you want.

Down in Newgale you can learn to surf, thats not too far away, or at WhiteSands.

There's also a water sports center in Goodwick (just next to Fishguard) which is not to far away.

May sure you pay a visit to Porthgain (head for fishguard along the coast road from st davids and you should see a sign, its a left turn after about 15/20 mins) when you are down there (if you haven't been).. apart from the sloop, the pub down there, you can go up on the cliffs and see some old ruins that are interesting.

Hope this helps

Bex
