Based in 100 acres of Pembrokeshire’s finest countryside, it includes indoor and outdoor exhibits that showcase the wonders of bugs and what they do for us. The site is home to a bug zoo, research centre and working farm, as well as Bug Farm Foods and Grub Kitchen, the UK’s first full-time edible insect cafe/restaurant. Here you can sample the cafe’s signature bug burger and, of course, its famous cricket cookies (non-insect items are also available).

MANOR WILDLIFE PARK

Watch lemurs jump about, pet giant rabbits and hand-feed wallabies at Manor Wildlife Park, near Tenby, a walking safari that is home to exotic and endangered animals from across the world. The walkthrough exhibits allow you to come face-to-face with many of the animals, while the park has a strong conservation ethos and focuses on providing more space for its animals. Manor Wildlife Park’s other attractions include a giant bouncy castle, indoor play area and café serving handmade pizzas.

FOLLY FARM

At Folly Farm you can visit more than 750 animals in the zoo, and get up close to furry and feathery farmyard friends in the barn. The attraction, at Begelly, near Kilgetty, in Pembrokeshire, features 17 different rides in its vintage fairground, plus eight adventure play areas. In total, there’s 120 acres of fun.

TESTIMONIALS

A stunning example of self-catering accommodation, Melin Llanrhian was always a striking and impressive house… The owners have taken the property on to another level with the stunning sunroom and kitchen extension overlooking the grounds, in which there has also been much work done.

PHIL FLETCHER, VISIT WALES

Lovely, comfortable cottage in a great location. Loved surfing at Whitesands Bay and there’s a wonderful walk from Caerfai to Whitesands with excellent views. Also, the fish and chips at The Shed in Porthgain is not to be missed. St Davids is full of cafes and nice shops, the cathedral and Bishop’s Palace are well worth a visit – very peaceful. Thank you very much.
