Base your summer holiday in Lawrenny, Pembrokeshire

Cresswell Quay near the Penquoit Centre

A tidal valley, with old fashioned peace, and the Cresselly Arms stretching out towards the river

Visit the Penquoit Centre in this secluded estuary valley in Pembrokeshire to find a village that has the peaceful feel of the past.  Visit the hamlet of Cresswell Key, just a mile away.  Here the Cresselly Arms seems to stretch right across the road to reach the tidal Cresswell River, which oscillates between mud flats and still waters.  The Cresselly Arms has summer BBQ’s by the waters edge and on a lucky date in July you will find the Tenby Male Voice Choir singing with the pub to their backs and the river in front.   Just 20 minutes drive from the Penquoit Centre are the beaches of south Pembrokeshire with their sheltered sandy expanses and the interesting harbor town of Tenby with shops, museums and beaches.  Three miles from the Penquoit Centre are Carew Castle and Carew Tidal Mill.  Privately owned and open to the public for very economical rates, the Mill and the Castle make a great day. For a few weeks in summer Carew Castle hosts a medieval village, providing great activities for children and adults for the cost of a few groats.
