Castell Henllys Iron Age Village

Nestled deep in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, there’s really no other place like it.

Step back in time at Castell Henllys, a unique Iron Age hill fort recreated with fantastic replica Iron Age roundhouses, built right on top of the excavated remains of an existing hill fort, dating back 2,400 years.

Roundhouses at Castell Henllys

A Scheduled Ancient Monument, Castell Henllys is one of many prehistoric promontory forts in the National Park dating to around 600BC, but the only one where you can actually go inside a roundhouse and grind flour and make bread just like the Celts used to!
