Beaches

 

Pembrokeshire is surrounded by beautiful beaches, just take a short drive to discover your own favourite.

 

Amroth and its beach are about 2 miles away, it is an easy drive or you can take the footpath from the Valley, its about 40 minutes walk through woodlands.

 

Tenby is a picture-postcard of a town with beaches which have been recognised as the best in Europe.   Its also got some lovely shops and restaurants within the town walls.

Saundersfoot is a large village only a few minutes away with a big sandy beach.

 

Barafundle Bay is frequently listed as one the UK's most beautiful beaches, it is gorgeous, but it is also a 20 minute from the car park and there are no facilities at the beach, so not one to take lots of deck chairs to.

 

Theme Parks, Zoos and Activity Attractions

 

Oakwood is about 15 minutes drive form The Valley and is Wales' biggest theme Park.

 

The Blue Lagoon is just past Oakwood, and offers water fun with slides and bubble pools and an area for small children to play.  But if you just need a pool there is a swimming pool in Tenby.

 

At Heatherton World of Activities you can havve a go at everything from archery through zorbing and high ropes to crazy golf.  Its on a  pay per activity basis, so you can choose how much you want to spend or how long to stay.

 

The animals at Manor Wildlife Park (just across the road from Heatherton) live in large enclosures, you may spot a tiger or a rhino, and you can walk amongst (and feed) wallabies and Lemurs.

 

Folly Farm  is the closest attraction to the Valley.  It combines a zoo, farm animal attraction, fairgound and adventure play.  You will probably need a whole day there.

 

It may not be Jurassic Park, but if someone in your family is obsessed by dinosaurs then the Tenby Dinosaur Park may be their idea of heaven, with its dinosaur trail with 30 dinosaurs models, rides, activities and information.

 

If you shop at Tesco then its worth checking if you can pay using your Tesco Clubcard vouchers at some of these attractions.

 

The great outdoors

 

Pembrokeshire has some great cycle routes, the Tramway Saundersfoot is close by the Valley.

 

There is lots of great walking in Pembrokeshire,  from the Valley it is possible to join the Costal path by taking a two mile walk through woodlands past Colby Woodland Gardens to Amroth.
