Oh yes! Pembrokeshire County Show is a dog-friendly day out.

On the first day of the 2017 show the sun came out after some torrential rain the day before – a few issues for parking with parts under water and some muddy patches, but otherwise all set for a grand day out. Dogs on leads with responsible owners equipped with pooh bags are made very welcome. We decided to take our 2-year-old Border Collie, Cwtch, to see how she got on!

“Go and see it” – Monty Don

There can be few more decisive reviews of a garden than this one from the star of BBC Gardeners’ World, so Pembrokeshire Life Online’s gardening correspondent, Jim Saul did just that.

On a glorious sunny May afternoon we were fortunate to be welcomed and shown around this enchanting place just below Waun Fach, east of Fishguard, by the creator, Christina Shand and her husband David. When she moved into Dyffryn Fernant in 1996, there was a run-down farmhouse and overgrown garden so Christina set about transforming it all, bit by bit.

The six acres of many different, natural, stylised and exotic gardens include a quarry area as you enter, then the front garden and kitchen garden – which were the first areas to be tackled -A plant nursery, rickyard, orchard, fernery, bog and woodland areas. From the gloriously pink house there are far-reaching views across the gardens to fields and the Preselis. Within the garden, a Cwm, a pond and the area referred to as ‘Beyond’ – where visitors are welcome to picnic. From the magic garden the views are wonderful.
