activities

Marle lies just outside the Pembrokeshire National park . It is surrounded by single track roads, bounded by hedgerows full of flowers, colours , perfumes and critters, ideal for cycling, or bumbling about, there is a small ancient bluebell wood just minutes down the lanes.

 

We look over Frenni Fawr in the foothills of the Presellies,  which stretch for thitrteen miles to Dinas Island. Wild horses roam free in the Presellies amongst the bronze age remains and stone circles. The ‘Golden Road’  is a famous but quiet track covering eight miles of the range of hills, excellent walking.

 

Cardigan Bay and the Pembrokeshire coast line lie close by with their stunning coast paths and beaches.

 

Wildlife abounds both at Marle and within Pembrokeshire with its ancient woodlands, historic towns, quiet beaches and hills. There are seals, dolphins purpoises and whales to spot guillimots and puffins to visit  and a host of other wildlife to discover and enjoy.
