Haverfordwest Castle, a stone’s throw from Le Durkestrete Cellar, was built in 1120 before the parish churches of St Marys and St Martins. The town walls were completed around 1250, and Dark Street, being inside the town walls and close to St Mary’s church, is one of the oldest streets in Haverfordwest. It is thought that the property was constructed around 1275 originally as two houses, later combined into one. The Latin name ‘Le Durkestrete’ originates from 1315, and is one of the earliest written records of Dark Street and the property itself. The census from 1841 onwards indicates that the property had a number of uses, being occupied by cork cutters, bakers, and grocers. In more recent history, the building was converted into a pub and wine bar. When this closed down, the property was left empty for many years and fell into disrepair. The current owners bought the building in 2011, and over the next 6 years, painstakingly renovated it. During the work they found several ancient pairs of children’s shoes concealed in the roof space, which were put there as good luck charms - an old custom dating back centuries. The owners were also delighted to discover the vaulted cellar which has now been completely restored and features in the accommodation. The property also has a private hot tub on the decking, which is perfect for relaxing in with a glass of something chilled after a busy day exploring the delights of Pembrokeshire.There is easy access to a variety of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, as well as the award-winning Haverfordwest Farmers’ Market. Held on the riverside every Friday, the market offers fresh fish, crabs and lobster, organic meat and vegetables, artisan cheeses and traditional recipe cakes. The town centre is dominated by the Western Cleddau river and the castle towering above it. Situated within the castle wall is the town museum, previously the old prison governors’ house. It houses exhibitions of art and local history and artefacts relating the town’s past. Down river on the west bank, in a pleasant setting, are the ruins of an Augustinian Priory that have been excavated.Pembrokeshire begs exploration and the diversity of the scenery is breathtaking. Towering cliffs plunge into the sea, contrasting with the Preseli Mountains to the north. These rolling moorland hills, rich with wildlife and history are the origin of the Stonehenge Bluestones. Flowing right through the heart of the county is the Daugleddau Estuary, a series of quiet tidal backwaters which, at low tide, reveal salt marsh and mud flats teeming with bird life. There is also the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path that wends its way through awesome scenery, perfect beaches and wildlife encounters. Beach 7 miles. Shop and pub 100 yards, restaurant 150 yards.
