Welcome to
Refreshing North Pembrokeshire

 An exciting project to boost and extend the tourism window across the coastal communities of North Pembrokeshire.

Refreshing North Pembrokeshire is a project set up by Fishguard and Goodwick Chamber of Trade and Tourism to boost the visitor economy across North Pembrokeshire.  Funded by the Coastal Communities Fund we aim to help develop the visitor economy and extend the tourism season.

We are doing this by working closely with communities from Solva to St Dogmaels, supporting new and existing events, tours and trails and helping businesses to maximise the benefits of digital marketing.   By providing support we have enabled wider marketing to encourage visitors into the north of the County.  Highlighting the culture, history and many attractions, events and eateries it has to offer for people to enjoy.

An aim of our project is to strengthen the link between the many tourism providers across North Pembrokeshire, highlighting the benefits of collaborative working.  One way we do this is arranging networking events throughout the year in various locations and supporting partners with events they put on.  Keep an eye out for information on the next event we will be at or hosting.

Now in the second year, the project has a new team, is already committed to supporting 5 new events this year and has a range of boutique tours and trails on offer for groups.  Also supported by RNP, this year has seen the opening of Bara Brith café in Dinas, a new well-being centre in St Davids, the launch of the Martha Morgan Country website and new products will be on offer from a walking collective.

Our Partners

The project is overseen by a strong partnership of organisations involved in developing tourism opportunities in the county and includes Hanes Llandoch, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Pembrokeshire College, Pembrokeshire County Council, Pembrokeshire Tourism, PLANED, with Arriva Trains and Stena Line also giving us support. The project started in January 2015 and runs for two years.

Refreshing North Pembrokeshire offers support and training to all businesses and event organisers that need help with extending the tourism season whether that be by extending existing events or creating new ones. The team at Refreshing North Pembrokeshire can help with IT, Training, Marketing and Coaching with in-house expertise.

Please contact us should you need any further clarification or help.

North Pembrokeshire Sustainable Tourism Group is your gateway to finding the very best SUSTAINABLE and truly GREEN holidays, short breaks, activities and events in the beautiful, wild and unspoilt north Pembrokeshire coast and countryside

The RNP team will also be supporting the meet and greets for this year’s Stena Line Cruise ships.  In 2015 we welcomed 7 Stena Line Cruise ships, this year we will be part of the team welcoming 19 Stena Line Cruise ships to Fishguard Bay.

Countdown until project ends.
