During our recent stay at Bluestone, which is located in a beautiful part of West Wales, we decided to jump in the car one morning and go exploring. We had been wanting to walk the village streets of Narberth for a while as both my mother and I had heard about good things about the this chic and stylish village with it's cute cafes, independent interior stores and friendly atmosphere and we were not disappointed.
For such a small welsh village it has a lot going for it, with some lovely boutiques, a wine and cheese deli, art centre and quirky little shops we felt spoilt for choice. The parking was incredibly cheap at 70p for 5 hours, in Cardiff 70p wouldn't even get you 30 minutes parking. What was also amazing is that we picked up a piece of coffee and homemade cake for £2.50 each from a cafe that had been opened inside an old court house. The staff were so friendly and happy and with large windows letting so much light into the large open interior it was a wonderful place to have a quick sit down and recharge.
We spent about half the day walking around this small but perfectly formed welsh village and would recommend visiting if you are in the area. There is also a small museum although it was closed for January for refurbishments. You can also get your culture fix by visiting one of many art galleries including one based in the centrally located town hall. One thing we both commented on was how friendly the locals are, such nice people and in every shop or store we went into we were made to feel very welcome.
