For example, located near Tenby in the southern end of Pembrokeshire, you’ll find Carew Castle, “where the magic of history lives on…” The 23-acre millpond it sits upon provides a gorgeous setting, and the castle itself is absolutely astounding, especially when you consider that it was constructed in the 11th century.
Then, overlooking the breathtakingly beautiful Teifi Gorge, you’ll find the ruins of Cilgerran Castle, a 13th century fort with a great deal of history of its own. Here you can enjoy beautiful walks around the castle, guided tours of this medieval structure with lots of insights into its story, and beautiful holiday cottages to stay in nearby.
Want to teach your kids the difference between a palace and a castle? You can show them the difference between a fortified castle and the display of affluence that a palace had when you visit St. Davids Bishop’s Palace. These incredible ruins give a glimpse at the kind of power and wealth that the church and clergy wielded at the time of its construction. Plus, you can catch open-air theatre performances here, as well, for a bit of added entertainment along with the history and architecture lessons.
Book holiday cottages for February half term, and you could enjoy all of these sites and more, as you and your children learn about the intriguing and rich history and culture of medieval and ancient Wales.
