St Florence is a pretty inland village, a mere 3 miles from popular Tenby, but don't mistake this idyllic location as being the inferior choice to its busier neighbour. St Florence is steeped in history and natural beauty and is a popular choice for families and couples that enjoy the excitement of the surrounding seaside locations but long for quiet, relaxing evenings away from the bustle of the buckets and spades and nostalgic seaside culture that make this area of South Pembrokeshire so popular.
St Florence is well-known for its beautiful traditional cottages surrounded by green Welsh countryside, many of which we're privileged to offer you as handsome and homely holiday properties. But the historic properties of this long-established village are not all traditionally Welsh, as you'll see from some of the older properties with unusual chimneys. The remaining Flemish chimneys dotted around St Florence are a testament to the Flemish families who moved here during the 12th Century. They were brought here by King Henry I to help create a buffer between the Welsh peoples of North Pembrokeshire and the then-recent Norman acquisition of the south. This charming, unassuming hamlet was one of the reasons that this part of the country became known as Little England Beyond Wales.
Nowadays, it's a delightful country village, the perfect escape for you and your family from the noise of city life, and a mere few miles from the south coast of Pembrokeshire. Enjoy a day at the beach in Tenby or Saundersfoot, take a boat trip to beautiful Caldey island or stroll the harbourfront and meander through the walled town.
