Pembrokeshire is full of heritage
Tenby’s medieval walls are one of the most important surviving city walls in Britain and impossible to miss when visiting our nearest town. Whether you’re into history or botany, there’s plenty to see and do during your visit!
We’re lucky to have 3 fantastic castles within 10 miles of East Jordeston. All are worth visiting but if you’re short on time, we’d recommend Pembroke Castle above Manorbier & Carew.
We also have 2 wonderful gardens nearby, Colby & Picton. Colby is a National Trust propery so if you already have membership that’d be a great place to visit. Picton’s grounds are much bigger and you can also visit the stately home.
We’ve also included the National Botanic Garden of Wales on our list. It’s a long way from East Jordeston but if you’re traveling home via the M4, it’s well worth a visit.
