Explore the Mystic, Rugged Preseli Hills

Clunderwen, at the gate to North Pembrokeshire, is really the place to be if you’re wanting a gorgeous Welsh countryside retreat, and somewhere to relax, take a breath and explore everything that the fabulous countryside has to offer.

It really is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the rural way of life. The village’s name is derived from two Welsh words: ‘clun’, meaning meadow, and ‘derwen’, meaning oak and is very close to the gorgeous market town of Narberth. The village has a good range of services and is a stop on the Haverfordwest-Carmarthen mainline, giving easy access by rail, as well as road.

The village was established after the railway line and station were constructed in the 1850s to transport slate from local quarries and to bring in livestock and foodstuffs. The railway, along with the Narberth to Cardigan bus service (430) which stops in the village, and the fact it is just off the A40 trunk road, means Clunderwen has good links to the rest of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and beyond. There are two pubs within the village, The Iron Duke and The Angel Inn, as well as a well-stocked village shop.

Clunderwen is close to Llawhaden, one of the oldest villages in Pembrokeshire and is home to a majestic 12th century fortified bishop’s palace. To the north, the Preseli Hills are just a 15-minute drive away and like Minwear and Caneston Woods, also a short drive away to the south, are a playground for walkers and cyclists. Picton Castle and Gardens located on the banks of the eastern Cleddau is also very close by. Maria’s is a lovely bistro in the courtyard and events are held all year round within the grounds. Clerkenhill Adventure Farm and Frizbee Golf Course is fun for all the family and is just off the A40 towards Haverfordwest.
