The East Tower is a medieval Tower in Pembroke Town Walls with an 18th-century Grade I octagonal gazebo on top – recently restored and filmed by George Clarke on Restoration Man.
Rooms are off the main sitting room and there’s plenty of space to spread out. A modern kitchen has a glass spiral staircase leading to the reading room, filled with pictures and sculptures. French windows open onto a slate roof terrace with another seating area, room for dining and a giant chess set. There’s a sauna house in the garden, too. You can stock up at Nash Farm Shop, five miles away, or stroll five minutes up the hill for cafes, pubs and restaurants.
An award winning pub, The Stackpole Inn is a 10-minute drive, and you can pick up the coastal path a short walk away. Explore castles (Pembroke, Carew and Manorbier are all within half an hour’s drive) and plenty of beaches: you can get to Freshwater East, Boradhaven and Barafundle in 15-20 minutes.
