The Pembrokeshire Candle Centre
The candle-making business at Cilgwyn was started by Inger and Brian John when they moved to the area from County Durham. Inger has always been the candle-maker, and Brian is well known as the author of The Angel Mountain
series of novels.
The Pembrokeshire Candle Centre is now one of the prime visitor attractions in North Pembrokeshire, and most of the annual output of candles is sold straight from the premises to new visitors and faithful "regulars” who call again and again and again.......
Next to the workshop is Britain’s smallest museum, with fascinating displays relating to the history and traditions of candle-making right back to Roman times.
Upstairs is a gallery featuring larger and unique items designed for enlightenment -- candlesticks, candelabra, wall sconces, floor-standing candle holders, and specially-commissioned items from local craftsmen and artists.
Please Note: Over the winter months we are closed for at least some of the time, but if we are at home we will be happy to open up the workshop for you. Please ring 01239-820470 to check on opening times, if travelling far.
