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 midway 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 Netherlands?

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.


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 & drink

There is a cafe at Castell Henylls Iron Age Fort that is open all year round and another, Cafe Celt, at the Shire Horse Farm which has seasonal opening times.


The nearest hotels are in Cardigan but there is a B&B in the village and an Inn in nearby Felindre Farchog. Campsites 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.
