The Keep, an ideal holiday apartment for two, and your dog is welcome too
The Keep is hidden away in a small courtyard of cottages just a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Pembroke's bustling main street. A stylish apartment for two, this is an ideal base for a relaxed Pembrokeshire holiday.
The living area is open plan with a well-equipped kitchen, modern glass dining table and comfortable sofa and armchairs round a feature wall fire.
The tall ceilings and painted stone walls, bordered by a great ceiling timber, hark back to an era of horse-drawn carriages. The Keep formed part of the arched entrance to the courtyard of an elegant Pembroke town house.
Just beyond the apartment's french windows, the shared courtyard is a sun-trap with gravel-surrounded flower beds and decking - a great space for summer drinks or al-fresco dining.
Though totally detached and independent from each other, can be booked with following cottages for friends/family to stay together - 1322 Priory Cottage, 1321 Tudor Cottage, 1335 Cromwell Cottage.
