Tenby
Tenby Castle was originally built by the Normans in the 12th Century, of which only a small tower remains on the top of Castle Hill. The town walls however, which it is believed were built later on in the 13th Century, are impressively well preserved, with the east walls running complete to the Esplanade.
Be transported back in time at Tudor Merchant's House, a museum displaying a three storey house of a merchant in the year 1500. See the merchant's shop and working kitchen on the ground floor, with a living area on the first for the family., and sleeping chambers on the second. Braille guides are available. Please note: There are no toilet facilities.
Stepaside Ironworks originally opened in 1849, obtaining ore from the Amroth area and was transported by Saundersfoot railway. The Ironworks are now very much a ruins nowadays with the Engine Blasting House and the Casting House being more well-preserved.
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.

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. 

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.
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.
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.

The Cabin Access Statement

This Access Statement has been prepared by the owner for your information; it is the most recent version that we have received. This statement has been prepared as objectively as possible, however with such a wide remit oversights may be made.

Please ensure all crucial requirements for a safe and enjoyable holiday are present so if you have any queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01437 767600.


Initial approach: down a steep hill.

Parking: A parking permit is paid for, but this does not necessarily allow you to park outside The Cabin, it could be up the hill or behind the buildings up the hill (There are not enough parking spaces for all the occupants of the flats, so you need to get there early).

Entrance: to The Cabin is up steps to the only entrance on the first floor. There are handrails. There are 6 slate steps up to a landing, the steps then turn at right angles left and are 8 wooden up to the next landing outside the front door. There are 14 steps in all. There is no ramp to the main entrance, since the level of the landing and the floor inside are the same. There are no other entrances.

There is no garden.

There are no changing levels within the lf at.

There are some differences between the colour of the walls and the floors, but the door insets are almost the same colour as the walls in the sitting room (cream walls, white door insets and doors). The bedrooms have coloured walls (very pale pink, yellow and blue) and white door insets and doors. The bathroom, shower room and loo, and separate loo are painted white and so are the door insets and doors.

All the rooms interconnect apart from the bathroom, shower room and loo and separate loo, which are reached through a narrow corridor between the sitting room and the yellow room.

There is external lighting above the front door, switched on from inside the flat.

There is a telephone but only for incoming calls.

There is a Sky TV.

Guide dogs are not welcome.

Public transport is available at the top of the hill on an hourly basis.

During part of July, all of August and part of September (dates confirmed each year) Tenby runs a pedestrianisation scheme restricting access into the town between the hours of 11am and 5.30pm (times can vary from year to year - this was correct in 2017). Please check on the Pembrokeshire County Council website by clicking here to confirm details for when you are planning to travel. (NB information is released towards the end of the year before the pedestrianisation is in place).
