Iolo Williams & Shan Cothi

Iolo Williams and Shan Cothi enjoy Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire

A new website has been launched featuring the national trails which provides top quality map based info to help people (visitors and locals alike) to plan their their visit to a National Trail.  What a great idea and service.

You’ll find everything you need ¬†to plan your visit to the best trails in Wales, whether you’re looking for a family day out, a short walk, ride or a really good ice cream or a life-changing long distance walk experience.

One of the best trails, in our opinion, is the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.  The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, and its surrounding way of life and businesses, was featured on Bro on S4C.  In fact Iolo Williams and Shan Cothi filmed here at Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire because the production company wanted to feature Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire.  Iolo and Shan absolutely loved battling here and had a hoot.

Ever wanted to play Battlefield  Live Pembrokeshire in a castle?  Well now you can.

Pembroke Castle + Battlefield Live Laser Combat = Awesome!

Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire now offers laser combat at Pembroke Castle during the summer evenings.  Pembroke Castle was  built in 1093 and was the birthplace of King Henry VII.  During the troubled reign of King Charles I, the castle was attacked in turn by both Royalist and by Roundheads as the sympathies of its occupants altered.  In the latter stages of the struggle an attacking force was led by Cromwell himself.

Battlefield Live Pembrokeshire Laser Combat can be booked at Pembroke Castle for corporate groups, youth groups, school groups, or a large birthday party.

To find out more about Battlefield Live in a castle please call Toria on 07777 671301
