There is stunning walking right on the doorstep of Penrallt, with the public footpaths and bridleway running through the site into the Fynnone Woods, along the Dulas and Teifi valleys and beyond into the Preseli Hills or on to the coast.
What a coast it is too! In 2011 National Geographic magazine voted Pembrokeshire the second-best coastal destination in the world, and the star attraction is the Pembrokeshire Coast Path which starts from St. Dogmaels, just a 20 minutes drive from Penrallt, and runs on for 186 miles through the National Park to Amroth in the South.
There are coastal buses which enable walkers to explore sections of the coast path one-way then take the bus back to where they started, such as the Poppit Rocket running from Cardigan to Fishguard. (Buses are dog-friendly.)
There are also 950km of walking trails within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, criss-crossing inland from the main coastal route.
North Pembrokeshire is blessed with fantastic riding opportunities, with hundreds of miles of bridleways, and picturesque lanes with almost no vehicle traffic.
There are 5 riding schools within a 7 mile radius of Penrallt, offering everything from lessons for complete beginners and children, through to cross-country hacks and show jumping training.
