Llanrhian Community Council represents the villages of Croesgoch, Trevin and Llanrhian and includes the coastal communities of Abereiddy and Porthgain. Just 500 meters inland from some spectacular cliffs and coves, Trefin is well positioned for walking the Pembrokeshire coast path which is particularly scenic here.The village is tranquil and uncommercialised for those wishing to escape more touristy areas.

The linear settlement is early medieval in origin and was the site of an Episcopal Palace and manor. The village is now designated a Conservation Area and includes colourful cottages, sea captains' houses and two former chapels, the Methodist Chapel (1786) and Elim Capel Bach (1843). To the west of the village is Aberfelin, a low tide shingle beach with lots of rock pools, a cave and a small island to explore. Above the beach is the ruined Old Mill dating from the 1400's - the subject of a well known poem by Archdruid Crwys, often recited and sung at Eisteddfodau. Melin Trefin is an allegorical poem drawing parallels between the centuries-long life of the mill and the short lifetime of the miller using alliteration, rhythm and rhyme.

To the east are the remains of Trwyn Llwyd slate quarry where slates were cut and planed using steam driven equipment between 1841 and 1905. A mile to the north of the village is Castell Coch, an iron-age Promontory Fort surrounded by 40 metre high cliffs and defended from inland by three lines of ramparts and ditches. A mile northeast is Carreg Sampson, a 5000 year old Neolithic burial chamber. This monument consists of a large capstone supported by three of seven upright stones and stands in the middle of a farm field overlooking Abercastell Bay and the Irish Sea.
