Pembrokeshire February Half Term Guide

7 Great Things to Do Out West

February half term holiday is fast approaching, and we know that any holiday involving children takes a lot of planning. So, we thought we’d help you out with a few ideas as to how you can keep your little monsters entertained and give them plenty to write about when they head back to school.

These ideas are by no means exhaustive but because we want you to have the best possible break in Pembrokeshire some suggestions are a bit different or less well known about.

  • Go on a Bike Ride. The Brunel Trail between Haverfordwest and Neyland is a perfect route for all the family. It also offers a mini history lesson as it was part of Brunel’s Great Western Railway Route. https://cyclingwiththekids.co.uk/cycling-routes/wales/pembrokeshire/brun… 
  • Pembrokeshire is perfect for a spot of Star Gazing. Wrap up warm and head over to one of the 7 Dark Sky Discovery sites listed in Pembrokeshire. https://www.darkskydiscovery.org.uk/dark-sky-discovery-sites/map.html 
  • Head out for a Walk. Pembrokeshire has something to offer for everyone; beaches for babies, town strolls for tots and trails for teens. Why not be part of a bigger picture by doing your own mini beach clean while you’re out and about or by getting involved in an organised beach clean event? https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/events/0886c4f0-f256-4202-b6bb-d38c5b13…
  • Seek out Wildlife. The Explorer Trail event organised by the National Trust at Colby Woodland Garden will ensure your children get interactive. Various dates over half term have been arranged. Head to the website for more information. You can also Learn About Creepy Crawlies by getting up close and personal with them at Dr Beynons Bug Farm near St Davids. Cricket Cookies are an extra optional experience. https://www.thebugfarm.co.uk/ 
  • Release your inner caveman or woman by doing Bushcraft. Lessons in fire making with Buzzard Chris Bushcraft will be sure to keep you warm. http://www.buzzardchrisbushcraft.co.uk/
  • Be creative whilst you hide away from the rain or have a cosy day in. The Creative Café in Narberth or Haverfordwest offer sustenance whilst masterpieces are in progress. Why not all get involved in painting something as a holiday memento?
  • Swot up on history at Castell Henllys Iron Age Hill Fort. This fantastic, unique attraction will really spark your children’s imagination as they see, touch and smell what life back then was really like. https://www.pembrokeshirecoast.wales/default.asp?PID=261
