Pembrokeshire town among the most sought-after places to live in Wales

The "picturesque market town" of Narberth was named one of the most sought-after places to live in Wales.

Property expert Thomas Goodman explained: "Nestled in the heart of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Narberth is a picturesque market town known for its independent spirit. 

"This charming town is a haven for art lovers, with a thriving artistic community showcasing their work in galleries lining the streets. 

"Independent shops selling everything from locally crafted jewellery to Welsh woollen garments offer a unique shopping experience. 

"Narberth boasts a relaxed pace of life, with a strong sense of community evident in the bustling market square and friendly cafes. 


"Venture outside the town centre, and you'll be surrounded by stunning natural beauty. Explore hidden coves, dramatic cliffs, and pristine beaches, all within easy reach. 

"Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, with its diverse landscapes and opportunities for outdoor adventures, awaits just beyond your doorstep.

"However, internet connectivity in some rural areas surrounding Narberth can be slower compared to more urban locations in Wales."
