The pretty village of Lamphey, just outside Pembroke town, certainly has a lot of history to explore for such a small village, being home to an historic parish church and the splendid remains of Lamphey Bishop’s Palace, an imposing landmark located on the northern edge of the village and well worth a visit to discover its fascinating history dating back to medieval times. Now protected by Cadw,
Lamphey has a village shop for all your daily needs as well as two restaurants at the Lamphey Court Hotel and Lamphey Hall Hotel. Both of which are open to non-residents. There is also a cricket club, a railway station and filling station both conveniently located near the village centre.
Historic Pembroke town is within a leisurely walk of the village, and you will find a good selection of shops, cafes, and restaurant. In addition, Freshwater East beach is just a 5-minute drive away. The direct road “The Ridgeway”, between Lamphey and Tenby passes by the stunning village of Manobier, which is worth checking out and offers some gorgeous views of Caldey Island off Tenby. Two gorgeous café’s, The Potting Shed at Manobier Garden Centre and Bubbleton Farmshop and Café in Penally, are en route and worth popping in to.
Lamphey is ideally situated for access to all the major tourist attractions in the area, yet it’s quiet and peaceful location is ideal for enjoying the tranquillity of the Pembrokeshire countryside, making it an ideal choice for self-catering holidays in Pembrokeshire.
