There's plenty of competition here in Pembrokeshire when it comes to fabulous places to eat, so to be labelled the 'food capital' of this fabulous county is definitely something of a compliment. There's even an annual Food Festival, normally taking place towards the end of September, which involves two days of food stalls, music, and family-friendly entertainment.
Narberth is no slouch in the shopping department either, with a wealth of quirky and unique shops and galleries. With the half hour drive to this colourful and charming town taking you over the majestic Preseli Hills, which is a treat in itself, do make time to head to Narberth during your stay with us.
What's in Town?
The high street leading through the town is a treat for the eyes in itself. Colourful Georgian and Edwardian buildings adorn either side, and there's the somewhat iconic clock tower right in the centre of it all. Eclectic shops, fabulous galleries and gorgeous cafes and restaurants line the streets, all enticing you inside. The Golden Sheaf Gallery is an absolute favourite, with all kinds of gorgeous goodies for sale; don't forget to head upstairs to the art gallery to browse works by local artists. And don't miss The Malthouse, full to the brim of wonderful antiques and with gardens and a café to boot.
For those who enjoy history, lying on the edge of town is Narberth Castle, a ruined Norman fortress dated from the 13th century and mentioned in the ancient Mabinogion (a book of ancient Welsh folk tales dating back to the 14th Century). Not forgetting too the museum and independent bookshop, which hosts a number of events throughout the year.
There are too many wonderful places to eat to mention them all, but rest assured you'll find plenty to keep you refreshed while you wander around, no matter your taste or budget. If you really want to push the boat out and go somewhere special, two miles outside town is Fernery at The Grove which boasts a Michelin star.
