Six miles from Tenby is the small village of Carew steeped in Pembrokeshire history and well worth a visit. It's famous Norman Castle overlooks and the beautiful 23 acre mill pond and incorporates the Tidal Mill - the only one in Wales. The castle is open to the public and has regular workshops and events. There is a free car park opposite the children's play area and has a wheelchair friendly route around the mill pond (about a mile).

Also amazing is the 11th century Celtic Cross - an early Christian monument.

Also to see in Carew is a flock of Jacob sheep and a Flemish chimney. Carew also homes over half the species of bat found in the UK as well as many different birds.

You can't visit Carew without a visit to Carew Inn and if you like a bargain you want to visit Carew Market and Boot Sale every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.
