David Phillips - 29th June 2018

A lovely place to stay...very clean and well appointed.

GS - 1st February 2018

Lovely little cottage, perfect for the two of us. Very clean with modern decor. Great finishing touches with a lovely welcome basket. Great location for exploring the wonderful Pembrokeshire coast line.

Paul Sealey - 30th June 2017

Had a wonderful few days exploring Pembrokeshire in the sun. The Keep is the perfect base for day trips across the whole area. Had a lovely walk from Stackpole Court, along the Lily Ponds to Broad Haven South Beach and Barafundle... not to be missed! Amazing food @ both the Stackpole Inn & The Golden Lion in Newport. A wonderful time had by all!

Property Description
The Keep is an ideal holiday apartment for two and one well-behaved dog in the ancient town of Pembroke close to the castle and waterside walks, offering Flexible Short Breaks all year.

  • The living area is open plan with a well-equipped kitchen, modern glass dining table and comfortable sofa and armchairs around a feature wall fire.
