*Penfro is Non-Smoking, thank you for respecting my home*
Pembroke is an historic town with a wonderful ancient castle and
nearby are many more of the wonderful castles Pembrokeshire is famous for.
Just 4 miles or so to superb beaches, Barafundle, Freshwater East and Freshwater West.
Swim, surf , fish, walk, cycle and just enjoy the beauty of the coastline.
Nearby are several quality golf courses.
A few miles away are the popular tourist resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot.
My husband is a graduate of the famous Shannon School of Hotel Management
with experience in hotels in Switzerland, Germany, Ireland and the UK.
He worked for many years as an hotel manager and was also in charge
of Conferences for TrustHouse Forte Hotels UK.
I too worked in hotels in the South East and London -
we met at the Castle Hotel, Windsor
where I was Head Receptionist and he was to spend a year in England.
Having met me, he never left!
I hope that I am a thoughtful hostess and
that your stay will be enjoyable
not just for the surroundings, but for the quality
and friendliness of the service you will receive.
We had hoped to find a beautiful house we could share with others
and once we walked inside the door of Penfro,
we never looked at another.
Though fabulous, the house is not stiff and formal.
We hope you will find it warm and welcoming too.
This is what we saw when the door opened.
This website was made almost entirely by me with just a little help from a friend.
I like things to be personal.
The words are mine and the photographs bar one are all mine too.
Personal service is important, it is what lifts a B&B
above an hotel.
Penfro is our home and we welcome paying guests
into it so that we can share it's beauty with others.
We are the current owners of this house built c1760.
When a friend told us that Penfro was for sale, she said
"It is better than the photographs",
and the photographs were pretty impressive.
But she was right. It is hard to see the scale of the building
and gardens and the true beauty of it all without being here.
Come and see for yourself.
I look forward to welcoming you to Penfro.
*Delighted to receive the Sawdays Award and want to thank my wonderful young helpers; 17 year old Abbie who has helped me for 3 years, Jack aged 15 who has helped for two and my lovely daughter, Sinead, who has helped for a year. They have all contributed to making Penfro a very special place to stay and an interesting One of a Kind B&B
My passion is the history of WW1 which started when I
wanted to find out more about my Father's father who was killed in 1918.
Having researched my own family, I then started to help others
research their families, mostly military history.
I became Honorary Secretary of The Machine Gun Corps Old Comrades' Association
17 years ago and continue to do that work,
making a twice yearly magazine, arranging events and
services of Remembrance. http://machineguncorps.co.uk/index.html
Since there was not a group dedicated to WW1 history
when I came to Pembroke, I started one.
Meetings are held at my home on the 1st Wednesday of each month.
If you are interested and live or are staying in the area,
please telephone if you would like to join in.
