Pembrokeshire is, of course, best known for its stunning coastline and beaches, along with its wildlife such as the puffins on Skomer Island, castles, Neolithic Cromlechs and the beautiful Preseli mountains from where the Bluestones of Stonehenge came.
Traditionally people come on holiday to relax, swim, sail, walk, play golf, fish, go dolphin, whale or bird watching and generally relax.
However, what is less well known is that visitors to Pembrokeshire can also widen their horizons by enjoying courses in a wide area of subjects from leatherwork, to art, cookery to willow sculpture or cob wall building to eco living.
