Folly Farm is so much more than just a farm. There's also a zoo, a vintage funfair and a whole host of indoor and outdoor adventure play for you to enjoy.
Just a stone’s throw from a well-renowned, beautiful Blue Flag beach, YHA Broad Haven is a super spot for seaside family breaks. The hostel is dominated by its beach-side location, with a nautical theme running throughout the building.
Explore the Pembrokeshire coastal path from the hostel’s front door, or at low tide, walk the half mile over the sand to Little Haven with its quaint fishermen’s cottages and quayside. If you're feeling peckish, why not enjoy some food with a stunning sea view at our Haven's Beach Cafe?

They had an information centre next door which is now our field study centre for visiting groups. The Youth Hostel is situated in the Pembrokeshire National Park, which is the only coastal National Park in the UK.
