Walking - The pleasures of a glorious sunset on the cliffs, a glimpse of a Dipper skimming down the river, or simply the fresh air and wind-in-your-hair feeling of a great walk in the country are here aplenty. Just get your boots on and head on out! The National Park ensures that the network of footpaths is well signposted and plenty of descriptive leaflets are available at Tourist Information Centre so you shouldn't get lost. As well as the 186 mile long Coast Path there are circular walks and longer routes to explore the Preseli Hills or the Nevern or Gwaun Valleys and the Daucleddau estuary. Also you don't have to be heroic to walk here; there are plenty of shorter strolls suitable for pushchairs and many with disabled access. There is a very useful coastal mini-bus service with pick up and dropping off points at remote hamlets, tiny coves and bigger beaches as well, so you can plan a whole day's tramping without having to retrace your steps to the car.

Cycling - There is so much to see with rides to suit all ages from beginners to experienced cyclists. Every corner you turn brings a new experience. The views are fantastic, especially if travelling the roads following the rugged Pembrokeshire coast or over the awe-inspiring Preseli hills. The Sustrans national route passes through the St Davids Peninsular and signposts good level, low-traffic routes suitable for families with children. The possibilities are endless and you can make it as easy or as hard as you like, but don't forget how the west coast here is often windy.... making it an extra workout to get where you plan to be!

Horse Riding - A number of stables around the county offer riding either within their own menage, or trekking out into the countryside. There are plenty of options from a short hour and a half beach rides to weekend, mid week or full week trail riding holidays. A booklet titled 'The Preseli Hills on Horseback' describes a number of riding routes of between eight and eighteen miles, with maps, directions and also points of archaeological and historical interest along the way.

Adventure - Pembrokeshire's reputation for adventure activities has grown by leaps and bounds (literally!) in the last decade. TYF Adventure based in St Davids, has pioneered the crazy sport of throwing yourself in the sea just to get to the other side - they call it 'coasteering'. They will also take you and/or the family or pals out climbing, kayaking or surfing round the dramatic islands and caves. Sealyham Activity Centre offers rock and rope climbing, archery and mountain-biking. There are Surf Schools at Newgale and Whitesands, and kite-surfing is offered by Big Blue at Newgale as well. For some of us, though, it is adventure enough to just sit on the beach and watch the daring ones ride the wind and the waves!

Priskilly Forest Country House and Golf Club, Haverfordwest Golf Club and restaurant (5,783yds par 70), Newport Links Golf Club (6,003 yds and par 70), St Davids City Golf Club (6,117 yds and par 70), Trefloyne Golf , Bar & Restaurant (6,635 yds and par 71). Newport and St Davids are set in classic sand-dune links right next to the sea with wonderful views.

Oakwood Theme Park just 15 miles away is one of the best thrills-and-spills days out in UK, with the fastest wooden roller-coaster ('Megaphobia'). Its the sort of place where everyone is laughing and having a great time all day... no whinging!! Next door is Bluestone, with the Blue Lagoon, an indoor, sub-tropical, swimming paradise opened in 2008 ... it has flumes, an indoor-outdoor 'lazy river' and a wave machine producing the biggest indoor waves in the UK! There are a number of other good local authority pools with saunas close by including Fishguard and Haverfordwest. You can paddle down the Teifi with Heritage Canoes or outdoor Go-Karting at Withybush, Haverfordwest. You can experience fun and adventure 40 feet above the ground or stay on level pegging with archery and pistol shooting at the Tree Tops Trail at Heatherton Activity Park. For little children there is a day visiting Folly Farm - The New Zoo Olympics Trail is a fun way to test yourself against the amazing feats of animal athletes: Can you jump as far as a wallaby, run as fast as a cheetah or stand on one leg as long as a heron - it offers a host of activities for all the family.
