Tucked behind a cottage with a pink roof on the blustery seaward edge of Mathry village is Ysgubor Fawr – a Large Shed. This is the office, bunkhouse and workshop base for a team of Rangers and volunteers who help look after the National Trust places from Marloes to St Davids to Cardigan. That’s about 200 pieces of coast and countryside, some 8,000 acres in total. Aside from more than 50 miles of the coast, much of the land is farmed by tenant farmers. The views along the north coast from our base are fantastic, but most importantly we’re fairly central between St Davids, Fishguard and Newgale, where many of our places are located. You’ll also find our shop and visitor centre in St Davids, where the friendly welcome from the local team is matched by their love of the special places in our care.
What does all this do? We work to keep some of the best known landmarks of North Pembrokeshire special – St David’s Head, the Blue Lagoon (Abereiddi), Porth Clais, Dinas Island, land around Solva harbour, most of the Marloes peninsula and the backdrop to Newgale beach.
You can visit our places, join in our events or volunteer to help with our work.
