Destination guide

Kingly Pembroke awaits

Pembroke – not to be confused with the greater county of Pembrokeshire – might be small, but it's always punched above its weight. King Henry VII of England – who would later go on to win the Wars of the Roses – was born in Pembroke Castle, way back in 1457. And the town was once one of the most powerful trading ports in West Wales. These days, it's an altogether sleepier spot, with a striking castle complex, some charming local shops and cosy little Pembroke holiday rentals with access to the acclaimed Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Things to do

Welsh waters and wilds in Pembroke

Pembroke holiday rentals are ideally placed for travellers who really want to get stuck into the gorgeous landscapes of West Wales. The town is encompassed by the vast Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which rings the whole county and packs in awesome sights like Barafundle Bay – take the swimming trunks for that one; and the city of St. Davids – for spotting mighty cathedrals and devouring homemade fudge. Other highlights are the bustling town of Tenby and the precipitously perched Saint Govan's Chapel – a small church that clings to the rocky cliffs.


Walking Pembroke

Pembroke is small, which means it's walkable. That's great news for history lovers who want to stroll in the footsteps of kings while glancing up at mighty castles. There's even a self-guided tour of the place on offer at the local visitor's centre. It will spin tales of battles and old city defences as you hop between the stone-built pubs and landowner mansions. Once you're finished, be sure to conquer the turrets of Pembroke Castle to see sweeping panoramas of the coast and the city unfold all around.


Prepping for Pembroke weather

Coming in winter? A word of warning – Pembroke can get rainy. This is Wales, after all. Just bring a brolly and perhaps bag a Pembroke holiday rental with a wood fire to warm the bones after those bracing walks – that should do it for the months between November and March. Most visitors head to the castle-topped town in the summer, which kicks off in June and lasts until August. It's often sunny then, which means enjoying the walking tours without getting drenched.

Natural features

Pembroke – from coast to countryside

Pembroke is close to Pembrokeshire Coast National Park – the only coastal National Park in Britain. You can break out in 3 directions and suddenly find yourself hiking wind-lashed clifftops and grassy meadows in the company of grazing sheep. Boat trips out from nearby Pembroke Dock can help reveal the sheer majesty of that vast reserve, bobbing over the swells to meet porpoises and dolphins, see puffins on the islands and explore hidden bays of lonely sand and shale.
