Location

Narberth, or Arberth in Welsh, plays a high profile in Welsh mythology. The former town hall still houses the cell where those involved in the Rebecca Riots were imprisoned. To learn more about the history of Narberth, visit its brilliant museum. It is also home to several sporting teams, including Narberth RFC, who currently play in the Welsh Championship, and Narberth Football and Cricket clubs. Narberth is full to the brim with independent shops, including craft and art galleries, bars, restaurants and boutiques. The town has everything you can need with health, dental, fitness and community centres. Narberth is twinned with Ludlow and both towns celebrate an annual food festival, which takes place in Narberth on the fourth weekend in September every year. There is a regular bus service running to Haverfordwest, Carmarthen and the outlying villages, plus a railway station. For the children, there is a primary school and nursery school. Narberth is within close proximity to the blue flag beaches of Tenby and Saundersfoot and within easy access to the county towns of Haverfordwest and Carmarthen.
