Conquered by a Norman knight in 1003, this castle was initially built in Motte-and-Bailey before being refortified in stone.

Please Note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.

Caldey Island is one of Britain's holy islands. The Cistercian monks of Caldey continue a tradition which began there in Celtic times. More than a thousand years of prayer and quiet living have made this remote and beautiful island a haven of tranquillity and peace. The monks and islanders of Caldey are pleased to welcome day-visitors to share the delights of their island home throughout the summer season. You can explore the historic Old Priory and the medieval churches or join the free guided walk for a closer look at the island's heritage. You may like to drop in at the Video Centre to find out more about life in the Monastery. Visitors are also welcome to attend the one of the short chanted services in the Abbey Church, which form part of the daily prayer life of the monks.

Postcards and special covers are franked with the Caldey Island handstamp. A fleet of boats runs to the island from Tenby Harbour from Easter to October. These boats, which are licensed and strictly supervised by the Marine Coastguard Agency, are owned by local boatmen, many of whom are members of the crew of the Tenby Lifeboat.

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.

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.
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.

We had a lovely last week of summer, weather glorious. Fresh Water West at its best, loved Westhills, a beautiful spot so nice to see the sea. Loved the swing, the dogs loved the garden, we loved the house. We have family in Saundersfoot so this was an ideal base for them to join us. The swing and badminton set - brilliant.
