Things to do on your glamping holiday on the Pembrokeshire Coast
This stunning Medieval castle began its life in the 1090s, after Norman invaders looked to settle in Wales following the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The castle has a rich and rocky history and it is well worth booking onto a guided tour to learn more about the fascinating events and battles that took place in and around the walls including the birth of Henry VII. There’s a year round calendar of events - including festivals and music concerts and seasonal celebrations for the festive season, Halloween and Easter. Exhibitions illustrate life through the ages in the castle and when you’re in need of a rest there’s a great cafe with seasonal specials as well as typical cafe and lunch fayre
