Situated between Tenby and Pembroke, Lamphey is about two miles from the coast and has some much appreciated facilities – a train station, good bus service, filling station and Spar shop, a renowned local independent bakery, hairdressers, hotels (The Lamphey Court and Lamphey Hall), The Dial Inn, our local pub and restaurant and our ‘tardis’ of a restaurant, The Lantern. There are also a number of independent traders specialising in alternative therapies etc.
The Parish Church, St Faiths, has a thriving congregation.
Lamphey has strong links with the Bishop’s of St Davids, being their Summer home. The ruins of the Bishop’s Palace are now cared for and administered by Cadw and are well worth a visit. Agriculture, along with tourism, are the two main industries in the immediate area and the Summer agricultural shows are well visiting.
