The main attraction within walking distance of our Lamphey holiday cottages is the ruined medieval Bishop’s Palace, which was used as a retreat when its former residents were not based at their usual home in the coastal Pembrokeshire city of St Davids. The well-maintained palace ruins have since been acquired and restored by Cadw, the Welsh historic buildings agency, and a visit here is sure to be enjoyed by anyone with even a passing interest in local history.
There is evidence which suggests that the Bishop’s Place at Lamphey once boasted remarkable levels of self-sufficiency, with large fishponds, a windmill, orchards and herb and vegetable gardens all existing, along with extensive parkland that was home to livestock. The neighbouring medieval church is also worth a visit, retaining many of its original interior features and a fine 14th/15th-century tower.
Our holiday cottages in Lamphey are close to a well-stocked shop and filling station that is ideally situated for quickly stocking up on your way to the beach. For excellent homemade food and a warm welcome, meanwhile, the Dial Inn is a must; named after a sundial that once stood outside this former private house, it became a pub in 1966 and has been a popular stop for walkers, cyclists, farmers and families ever since.
