Freshwater East
Swanlake Bay is shingle beach, accessible only from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path situated between Manorbier and Freshwater East.

The beach itself is sandy, with rocks and rockpools at either end and a pebble bank along the high tide mark, and is very popular with surfers. It is home to a stone cromlech known as the King's Quoit. To find it, follow the signs from the A4139 onto the B4585.

Historic Places near Flygate

Carew Cheriton control tower museum, restored to original state as part of a community project. A lasting memorial to all who served on the airfield through two world wars. The airmen who main the supreme sacrifice during those years. A structure for educational use focused on school and group visits who are studying this period of modern day history. A tourist attraction offering a wartime experience.

Built in timber around 1100 by Gerald of Windsor, this now-ruined stone castle is a very popular historic attraction. The walk around the Castle and Tidal Mill is particularly popular with dog owners. The walk is a great free attraction, however there are admission charges upon entry to the castle. Carew Castle often hosts special events throughout the year, see their website for more information.

Please Note: Well behaved dogs are welcome inside the castle providing they are kept on a short lead. 

Once a retreat for medieval bishop's seeking a tranquil surrounding away from the Church, Lamphey Bishop's Palace has been extremely well preserved despite dating back centuries. The Western Hall, Inner Gatehouse and the 82 foot long Great Hall are still an impressive sight to see. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
Built in the 13th Century, this castle is half fortified manor house and half fully developed medieval castle surrounded by forty acres of land and gardens. The castle and gardens is closed over the winter months for essential maintenance but is open for special occasions. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
Pembroke
Built in 1093 with timber, before being rebuilt in 1189 with a stone structure, this castle is ovular in shape and surrounded by a mill pond. This castle has a gated house with a circulated keep, and has been extensively restored. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads.
Pembroke Dock's Flying Boat Centre is unique to the UK. Learn about the RAF Pembroke Dock, the worlds largest flying boat station and the famous Sunderland and Battle of the Atlantic.
Manorbier
Conquered by a Norman knight in 1003, this castle was initially built in Motte-and-Bailey before being refortified in stone. This castle is full of history after being attacked twice during minor wars and it was seized during the English Civil War. In the late 1800's, repairs took place on the building and castle walls. Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
Originally constructed in the 12th Century as a fortress made from timber, and has seen visits from a number of famous names including Oliver Cromwell and King Richard II. The castle was later reconstructed in stone, and was often used to house prisoners before being replaced by a new prison building inside the castle grounds in the 19th Century. This building is now home to the Pembrokeshire Records Office. Not much remains of the stone castle other than the stone wall which grandly looks upon the small town below it. A must-visit is the Town Museum, located in the Old Prison Governor's House. With artefacts, prints, paintings and models, this museum tells the history of the castle and the surrounding town.
Narberth
Narberth Museum is a great visit for all the family, learn all about the history of Pembrokeshire's little market town. With it's own bookshop and cafe, you can easily spend an afternoon here learning all about local history.
Narberth
First recorded as a Norman Castle in 1116, Narberth Castle bears the legend that it was once a palace described in the mythical tales of Mabinogion. Unfortunately, very little of the stone structure remains but you can see that it was once rectangular in shape with circular towers. By the end of the 20th Century, Narberth Castle was derelict and so in 2006, renovations took place and it was opened to the public.

We've had a fantastic week here in this beautiful, cosy home. Only a little rain and lots of sun which has allowed us plenty of time on the beach - our favourites being Broad Haven and Whitesands (Great for body boarding!) Thank you for all the extra touches which made the whole stay extra comfortable.


Lewis family

A very relaxing, enjoyable, peaceful break in a well equipped, clean cottage. Ideal place for a dog, remote enough not to worry about any barking and lots of lanes to explore. Perfect cottage in every way. Thanks.


The Welchharts

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in this lovely cottage. There are so many things to see and do in this beautiful part of Wales, we wish we were staying for longer! Highlights included visiting Carew Castle, wine tasting at Cwm Deri, and having a lobster roll from Cafe Mor in Freshwater West.


Brian & Rose

We have had a lovely relaxing stay at Flygate Cottage, mornings were a stroll into the garden, smell the rambling roses and enjoy a pot of tea, watch the robins, blackbirds, chaffinches and rare sight of a Jay. Evenings were similar but with the odd glass of wine and BBQ. The cottage is very comfortable and feels homely and relaxed. Thank you!


We have stayed in many coastal cottages and we would say that this one is one of the best! The garden is wonderful! Thank you


Tamasin, Lee & Samuel

What a beautiful place to stay. A real home form home (or as you would like your home to be). We had beautiful weather, and enjoyed visiting some of the beautiful beaches and gardens of Pembrokeshire. Thank you!


Jenny & Billy

Love this cottage! Perfect place to de stress for us both and plenty of good walks for the dog. I love the garden and we sat out most evenings and early mornings. First time in South Wales and we will be back - and to this cottage! Thank you


Mike and Christine

Thanks for a lovely stay in this beautiful place. We've had some great walks around the lanes and around Lawrenny. It is so peaceful and the garden in the evening sun is delightful. Some lovely beaches around and visited often. Thanks again!


The Rowreys

Second visit, could it be as good? Most definitely! We just love it here and will be back next year. Thanks for everything


Kate & Phillip Barry

First visit but would certainly like to come again. We were extremely lucky with the weather and really enjoyed the garden and spacious and well equipped holiday home. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Dylan Thomas Boathouse and walk along the estuary at Laugharne.
