Whether you’re all about walking, wildlife watching, history and mystery, making a splash or epic family adventures, there’s plenty to see and do with the National Trust in Pembrokeshire.

The conservation charity cares for miles (and miles!) of the county’s coast and countryside, along with historic houses, colourful gardens and an array of accommodation. Plus by visiting one of the National Trust’s special places you’re also doing your bit to help safeguard them for future generations to enjoy.

Here are 10 of the National Trust’s must-visit places in Pembrokeshire:

1. Colby Woodland Garden

Western Telegraph:

Nestled in a hidden valley near Amroth, Colby Woodland Garden is a riot of colour and a must-visit throughout the year. Follow winding woodland trails, admire seasonal blooms in the walled garden and let little ones enjoy natural play with pond dipping, tree climbing and den building.

2. Tudor Merchant’s House

Western Telegraph:

If you’re all about history and mystery, step back in time at the Tudor Merchant’s House in Tenby and see what life was like in the 1500s. Uncover the superstitions and secrets of Tudor sleep as we launch our Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite programme of activities (13 April to 3 November).

3. Stackpole

Western Telegraph:

Stackpole’s 2,000-acre estate is a magical mosaic of habitats; an historic designed landscape makes way for a beautifully rugged stretch of coastline. Head to Broad Haven South for beach adventures, Bosherston Lakes for woodland walks and the Boathouse Tea-room for a bite to eat with a sea view.

4. Gupton Farm
