Stay in Lamphey
The pretty village of Lamphey, just outside Pembroke town, West Wales, 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.
Lamphey has a village shop and bakery catering for all your daily needs and a popular local inn, The Dial Inn, serving good food throughout the day, as well as the restaurant at the Lamphey Court Hotel which is open to non-residents. Lamphey also has a cricket club and a railway station both conveniently located near the village centre.
Historic Pembroke town is within a leisurely walk of Lamphey where you will find a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants lining the busy Main Street with its clock tower and narrow lanes leading off to the Mill Pond and riverside walks. The town has many interesting and historic buildings, however the main feature of Pembroke has to be the magnificent Pembroke Castle which sits proudly above the walled town and Pembroke River.
Lamphey is ideally situated for access to all the major tourist attractions in the area, yet its 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.
