On your way to Pembrokeshire Courtyard Cottages, why not break your journey through Wales, and stop off to visit one of the tourist attractions below or add a family outing to the end of your holiday -
Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine
This is an authentic 18th century silver mine. A visit to Llywernog offers a fascinating insight into life nearly 200 years ago, when the mine employed over 60 people. Today, Llywernog is a fascinating and educational family adventure, and continues to be developed as a major all-weather visitor attraction.
King Arthur's Labyrinth
An exciting visitor attraction in Mid Wales. An underground boat takes you deep into spectacular caverns where Welsh tales of King Arthur unfold with tableaux and stunning sound and light effects. The journey ends with a return trip along the beautiful subterannean river into the grounds of Corris Craft Visitor Centre where there are Craft Workshops, Cafe, picnic area and play area for children. A great family experience.

Blue Island Ceramics is a tourist attraction with a difference -you can have fun painting your own designs on a range of pottery and tiles. We will glaze and fire your pieces and they will be ready within 2-3 days. If you are only paying a brief visit on your way to your holiday cottage, we will ship them to your home address. You can also view items we have designed such as limited edition plates.
