Our home village: St Florence

St Florence is a beautiful picturesque village surrounded by farmlands and a 5 minute drive to colourful Tenby and the Pembrokeshire coast. There are numerous walks to do in the surrounding fields (ask us for where to go) so you can escape the crowds and immerse yourself in the quieter side of Pembrokeshire.

For those of you who like a bit of history, our village dates back to the Normans, with the oldest surviving building being the church (St Florentius) which was built in the 12th century. Wandering around the village you will also see lots of Flemish chimneys (have a look at the picture if you aren't sure what they are) and there are still plenty of 16th and 17th century buildings scattered around.

The Ritec river flows though the village, and before they reclaimed land in the 19th century at Tenby South Beach, you were able to navigate all the way up to the village shop from the sea! Today, the Ritec is a gentle stream winding its way through the village. The ruins of the old mill can still be seen today by the Ritec, surrounded by seasonal flowers. Not far from St Florence is Ritec Fen. The Fen has been deemed a Site of Scientific Interest due to its important wetland habitat which supports nationally important sedges and ferns.
