This restored 12th-century castle with its dramatic profile is a unique place to stay on the gorgeous St. David’s Peninsula. With history blended with modern comforts and an on-site fine dining restaurant, it’s the perfect place to return from a day’s exploring the countryside.
Why We Love It
Take the opportunity and travel with a group to take over the entirety of this Grade I listed castle.
The views are, as you’d expect from a strategically-sited fortification, wonderful. Wherever you are in the castle there’s yet another panorama of glorious green hills and shining blue sea.
The imposing Roch Castle Hotel juts up from its private 10-acre patch of Pembrokeshire coastline as it has done for over 800 years. Within its sextet of luxurious bedrooms, the incredible position gives you far-reaching views over St. Brides Bay and the rolling Preseli Hills.
It’s easy to access the natural paradise of Pembrokeshire from the castle’s location. Walk the Coastal Way to feel the bracing winds coming off the Irish Sea, hear the crashing of the waves, and wander through sleepy Welsh villages. If you feel the sea calling, try some surfing or take a kayak out to reach the coast’s cut-off beaches.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
It’s a remarkable slice of Welsh and English history, having been built on the border of what used to mark the historic division between the English and Welsh areas of Pembrokeshire. it was even set on fire by the Parliamentarians after the past owners made the wrong bet in the English Civil War.
Happily, all has been restored—and then some—to former glories. Its former Norman owner would have especially appreciated the panoramas of the Pembrokeshire coastline available from the glass-walled Sun Room.
Its Blas restaurant is also a fantastic place to discover the regional flavors reworked into delicious haute cuisine. The saline laverbread, a classic Welsh dish made with laver seaweed foraged from the coast, is a must when on the menu.
