Eglwyswrw is hard to pronounce unless you have a good grasp of Welsh. Try the phonetic approach of egg-lis-oo-roo!

The village lies alongside the A487 mid way between Newport and Cardigan. And did you know that the village sign for Eglwyswrw was used in a Eurotunnel advertising campaign throughout France, Germany and Holland. 

What's in Eglwyswrw?


Bro Meigan Gardens. The garden has 6½ acres of formal lawns, colourful herbaceous borders, wild meadow and a delightful wooded dingle with natural springs and bog garden. The gardens are in a beautiful, peaceful location and are the perfect place to unwind.

Castell Henllys, a reconstructed Iron Age hill fort, complete with roundhouses and other buildings, built in exactly the same place as the Iron Age buildings as identified by archaeological excavations. Re-enactments throughout the summer bring the settlement to life.

Take a tractor ride around the Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, a working farm, then enjoy a horse and cart ride. Meet the other traditional farmyard animals such as our Welsh Pigs, Balwen Sheep, donkeys and also our visitors from South America, the Llamas. You can even help to feed the calves and pet the smaller animals

Food and drink

The Butchers Arms, the only public house remaining in the village.


The nearest hotels are in Cardigan but there is B&B in the village and an Inn in nearby Felindre Farchog. Camp sites and touring caravan sites are available but not in the village itself. There is a holiday park with camping facilities in Newport. There are numerous self catering cottages throughout this part of Pembrokeshire.

The History of Eglwyswrw

A small Norman motte and bailey fortification can be found on the western side of the village. There are masonry remains from what appears to have been a square tower.

Finding Eglwyswrw

 Just come back from a week’s break in St Davids - loved the area completely, and the local people are brilliant. Highly recommended is a boat trip to Ramsey Island.
