Homey BnB in Pembroke Wales
Striving to find a homey BnB in Pembroke Wales? Let us recommend one that we stayed in during our recent Ultimate United Kingdom Road Trip.
Pembroke and its fabulous castle was our third stop on this road trip that earlier include a visit to Wells and it’s cathedral, and were unsure of where we should take up lodgings during our stay. Making it all the more challenging, was the time of year. August is peak travel time in the UK, making it pretty difficult to find a nice comfy and clean place. But, we lucked out.
We arrived in a driving rainstorm. Hopefully, you will not experience the same. I bring it up, because we were a bit unsure of where we were supposed to go. I called Emma, the owner, she explained, and even came out in the rain to show us where to she was and to explain the parking, which was right across the street and ample. This was our introduction to Eaton House, and Emma made us feel more than welcome.
Eaton House, the very definition of a home BnB in Pembroke Wales, is located right on the main street through Pembroke. 108 Main Street to be precise. It’s a wonderful Georgian town house, that really beckons the visitor. Step through the black wrought iron gate, passed the bright green planters, and across the threshold into the warmly decorated and inviting front foyer.
Immediately to your left is the comfy and inviting breakfast room where Emma will cheerfully greet you each morning and take your breakfast order. And, is an enticing menu with good eats that will jet propel you through your day of adventure.
Immediately ahead is the staircase to the upper floors and the three guest rooms, all of which are ensuite. One of the three, the one that we reserved, is called the Cwtch’, Welsh for hug or cuddle. It has a comfortable super king size bed and that is why we chose it. When you are 6’8″ the bigger the bed the better. I believe it’s at the top of the house, if memory serves me. And, it offers nice views from up there.
There are an additional 2 guest rooms. They are both double ensuites, and very nice as well.
Emma, and her husband (whom we never met) run this lovely place that is so warmly decorated. It’s light and bright, and terribly inviting. We longed to be able to extend our stay. If only! But, the next destination beckoned.
Let me finish by saying that, if you get the opportunity, you must absolutely stay here. I know you won’t be disappointed in this homey BnB in Pembroke Wales.
One last thing. When you go to dinner, make sure that you make the walk several blocks to the Old Kings Arms. When we were there it was the only place open when we wanted to eat. Lucky for us. We couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable experience.
Sit and have couple pints of Bishops Finger in the pub. You can eat dinner here too if you wish. Or, you can move into the dining room.
And this is not your standard pub grub! Not, far from it! This seriously good eats we’re talking here. All of the food is provided by fantastic local suppliers. I had the absolutely delicious Steak and Ale Pie. Oh man! Highly recommended. Here’s a link to the Le Carte menu, if you want to tempt yourself.
One last thing before we close. We were lucky enough to meet and chat with Mr. Wheeler, the owner. Jo and I had such a memorable chat, that I’m ashamed to say that I forgot his first name. My sincere apologies. From him we learned that it’s quite likely there has been a ‘hostelry’ on the site for as long as Pembroke Castle has stood nearby; the Castle is more than 1000 years old! Can you imagine.
Thank you, Mr.Wheeler for such a lovely time, and tasty dinner!
And, thank you Emma for being such a hospitable host and recommending that we eat at the Old Kings Arms.
