The pretty countryside surrounding Pembroke makes an excellent base for a cottage holiday, and the town itself is well worth visiting, with most tourists drawn by one of the best preserved mediaeval castles in Wales. Lose yourself in the labyrinth of rooms, turrets, battlements and winding staircases, enjoy a picnic and a walk around the castle pond and grounds, and take in the superb panoramic views from the lofty heights of the fortress that was the birthplace of the Henry VII, founder of the Tudors.
Attractions nearby include the resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby, the retreat of mediaeval bishops at nearby Lamphey Bishops Palace, Carew Castle & Tidal Mill and the revitalised dockland of Pembroke Dock. Take a visit to the Cwm Deri Vineyard and Estate at nearby Narberth, one of the region’s more unusual visitor attractions. Enjoy a walk through the vineyards, sample the wine and browse for a wide range of locally produced food. The Pembrokeshire National Coastal Path runs through town, offering superb walks and rambles of varying durations, and the town has a range of shops and services catering adequately for the holidaymaker, including some good pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a gentle stroll along the Mill Pond, looking out for abundant wildlife.
