In the depths of Pembrokeshire, Wales lies the pretty and quaint town of Narbeth. With places like Blackpool Mill and the Oakwood Theme Park nearby, Narbeth is an excellent place for a self catering holiday, either with a group of friends, the whole family or as a couple. Bright and colourful Edwardian buildings are dotted along the Narbeth high street, which is now well-known as a great spot for shoppers. Plenty of boutiques and gift shops mean you will never be bored of browsing, and independent, traditional businesses mean that the items are high quality – much like the meat at local butcher’s, which won The Telegraph’s ’Best Traditional Business’ award! For foodies, there is the Narbeth Food Festival each September, or plenty of charming cafes like Plum Vanilla. Come with your friends to the Queen’s Hall to see live music, with many big names having played there in the past.
A sandy beach sits on the doorstep of Swn y Mor, a large seaside holiday cottage with a hot tub in Pembrokeshire which welcomes families. Outdoor entertaining areas and generous windows capture the ocean views and complement the luxurious décor of the pet-friendly cottage. Sleeps 8.
Narbeth has a lively and interesting history, such as the Rebecca Riots. To find out more about this tale, be sure to visit the Narbeth Museum. Narbeth also has many art galleries, such as the aforementioned Queen’s Hall – also used as a restaurant, so you will never be short of activities, and can always visit during the day! For the kids, there is The Creative Cafe, where they can sit in one of the studios and paint their very own pottery, or create their own fingerprint jewellery, which makes for a pretty spectacular souvenir! Alternatively, for letting off some steam, there is the Blue Lagoon Waterpark, with a wave machine and lots of flumes, slides and water cannons. Narbeth is a town that has much to offer, yet has kept a fairly low profile for the past few decades, making it one of Wales’ special treasures that is sure to charm all who visit.
