The Experience

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.

Reviews

An ideal base for exploring Pembrokeshire. You're a short drive away from beautiful beaches, numerous castles, and stunning walks in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. A rare find: a private and peaceful place in a central location with everything you might need nearby.

Location

The neighbourhood

The tower is in the centre of Pembroke, set back down a quiet lane from the main road; it still feels secluded and peaceful - there’s a wall between you and any neighbours and noise from the town seems distant. You have everything you need on your doorstep. The popular market town of Narbeth is a 25-minute drive away – head for great independent shops and restaurants.

Local points of interest from Bruce Woodall

  • There is a many Castles and Gardens, NT properties such as Colby Woodland Garden and cafe, The Lilly Ponds at Bosherston and tea room, beautiful beaches and fine walks - inland and on the coastal path - a coastal bus service operates (Check times)
  • Laugharne Castle and Dylan Thomas’s Boathouse (SA33 4SD) are about 35 minutes away. Gardens to visit include Picton Castle and Gardens with cafe, Carew Castle which often holds Son et Lumieres and Concerts, and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
  • There is a farmers' market in Pembroke on alternative Saturdays and fresh fruit and veg can be purchased at Springfield Farm near Manobier. Narbeth is well worth a visit for its farmers' market and shops.
  • There are some delightful cafes for lunch at Manobier, Stackpole Quay, Stackpole Gardens Cafe with produce sale ,Angle Beach and Freshwater West.
  • We recommend the Stackpole Inn and the Brewery Inn (book ahead!). For a more traditional country pub try the Cresselly Arms, which does BBQs in summer - the landlord will always give you a good welcome.
  • Other restaurant suggestions would be The Grove Hotel at Narbeth and The Coast at Saundersfoot, which are owned by the same family and have excellent food and in idyllic locations. Also a number of Spa Hotels such as Lamphey Court Hotel and St Brides Hotel
