Castles

Castles in Wales are like mountains in Switzerland – they’re everywhere! This is particularly true about Pembrokeshire since it has a turbulent history between the Normans, Flemish and the English on the one hand, and the Welsh on the other. One beautiful castle with a stunning location is that of Manorbier castle set high above the coast along some narrow lanes, little over 6 miles from Tenby. One of Wales’ first and foremost historians was born here in the 12th century, Giraldus Cambrensis, half Norman half Welsh he is best known as Gerald of Wales. Another beautiful castle location is that of Carew castle with a history of more than 2,000 years, about 7 miles from Tenby. It also has an 11th century Celtic cross, a medieval bridge and the only restored tidal mill in Wales in its vicinity. If it is a mighty fortress castle you’re looking for, then you can travel the 11 miles west towards Pembroke with its fine medieval castle. The castle grounds are well kept and allows for a wonderful day out.
