Travel Tips

The main access to the county from the east is via the M4 to junction 49 and then via the A48 to Carmarthen and the A40 west to St.Clears. As you come into Pembroke on the main road from St Clears, you’ll enter the north-east side of the town, via Holyland Road. Take the second exit on the roundabout at East End Square. Drive down Well Hill and right around the town walls (Commons Road) until you come around the full extent of the one-way system. Where the castle looms ahead of you, turn right once into Main Street. Stay in the right hand lane and drive down the Main Street. The apartment can be found in a mews between two gift shops, just a bit further along from Barclays Bank.
Travellers from the north Midlands and the north of England should head for Aberystwyth and follow the A487 southwards through Cardigan to Pembrokeshire.
