Whether you like walking or eating; want to learn a new hobby or learn more about yourself; love to explore old ruins or prefer beautiful sandy beaches – we have the perfect themed break ingredients and expertise to make your holiday to Wales a great new experience.

Treat yourself to a holistic holiday

We don’t just want to give you a wonderful wellness break, we want to send you away feeling like a new person with new ambitions and new routines!

Our holistic massages at the Elemis Premier Spa can treat your body and mind at the same time:

  • Reiki is designed to free your mind from everyday worries and stress. It works with the energy flow of the body. Unhappy memories, emotional pain or stress are stored within the physical body. Reiki will have a positive effect, releasing blocked feelings and emotions, cleansing away toxins to restore balance and harmony.
  • Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, India and China. The treatment encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance and helps us to cope on a physical, mental and emotional level, whilst bringing relief to conditions such as back pain, migraine, arthritis, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalance, sports injuries, digestive disorders and stress related conditions.

And our health and food experts can also help to give you a head start when you return from your relaxing break:

  • Iân, our health and fitness professional, can help you put together realistic and fun goals and show you the best way to set up a lasting fitness routine.
  • Learn how eat yourself well with Waves Restaurant Manager David Zanato, after all,  ‘what you eat is what you are!’

Then when you’re not being pampered in our spa or picking the brains of our talented professionals, you can use our golf course, swimming pool, sauna, hot tub and fitness suite to your hearts content. Or walk or jog the famous Celtic Mile, enjoying the amazing views and take time out for some ‘me time‘ meditation whenever you want.

Hone your golf skills

Whether you’re a seasoned player or a golfing beginner, our 9-hole headland golf course has panoramic views over Caldey Island and the Atlantic Ocean and is available for all guests.

No handicap is required, clubs are available free of charge and you can also benefit from the PGA approved golf simulator which has over 70 international courses and full training and driving range programmes.

Our Golf Professionals are chosen for their teaching skills and their ability to not only quickly set up and motivate a novice, but also to remedy experienced golfers problems.

Explore beautiful beaches

Did you know Pembrokeshire’s beaches are experienced film stars? And Celtic Haven is lucky enough to be located right at the heart of Wales’ most stunning coastline.

Freshwater West beach

Freshwater West beach has already been seen on the big screen in 2010 Robin Hood epic starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, and the penultimate Harry Potter film The Deathly Hallows in 2011.

Barafundle Bay

Barafundle Bay has been voted many, many times as one of the best beaches in Britain and the world, and often likened to a Caribbean beach! And it was also the setting for the 2011 film Bright Star, starring Benedict Cumberbatch [Sherlock Holmes, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy].

And scenes for Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart [Twilight] were filmed on Marloes Sands in September 2011, with the film due for release June 2012.

Our staff will be able to help you find and recommend the best spots on these amazing Pembrokeshire beaches and more.

Walk the Pembrokeshire coastal path

Pembrokeshire boasts the only Coastal National Park in the UK, and Celtic Haven is set in the heart of it.

From your cottage door you can explore the National Coastal Park and all its magnificent natural features. Peregrine falcons will follow you, the baby seals will captivate you and the views will take your breath away. All this and lunch in a different pub every day!

Our staff are on hand with walking guides, and can also organise guided walks with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park rangers.

Sample Welsh cuisine

Wales boasts some of the best local produce and cuisine in the entire UK – from Pembrokeshire new potatoes, Welsh lamb, cheeses, local wine, chocolate, ice cream and of course the most delicious fresh seafood. There’s something on offer to tickle your taste buds.

Our staff can advise on the fantastic regular farmers’ markets in Pembrokeshire’s market towns where you can buy traditional craftwork such as wood carvings, woven fabrics and pottery, and the freshest local produce.

Local produce and delicious fresh seafood also features heavily on the menus of our Waves Bar and Restaurant.

Discover historic Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is home to an array of sites of major historic significance, from the grandeur of the castles at Pembroke, Tenby and Carew, to the beautiful and tiny monastic island of Caldey.

Pembroke Castle

Visit the site near Dale where Henry Tudor landed on his march to battle with Richard III at Bosworth, or Fishguard, where the last invasion of Britain by the French took place in 1797. In the north of the county is the tiny city of St Davids, with its historic cathedral and Bishop’s palace nestled amongst the rolling hills for which Wales is famous.

There is also a thriving arts scene in the county with a variety of theatres, live music venues and art galleries featuring the work of local artists inspired by Pembrokeshire’s beautiful scenery.

Caldey Island

We sell tickets to the serene Caldey Island from our reception during the summer months, and our Pembrokeshire staff are all on hand to advise an itinerary for both history buffs and those just fancying a good day out in Pembrokeshire.
