Roch Castle

A castle overlooking the dramatic Welsh coast

Roch Castle

Perched on a rocky outcrop, overlooking manicured sloping lawns, our luxurious Norman castle rests on outskirts of the peaceful village of Roch, roughly halfway between St Davids and Haverfordwest. Enjoy panoramic views out to sea across St Brides Bay, and inland across the rolling Pembrokeshire countryside from one of our six fairytale bedrooms.

Building: 1195

Resting on a volcanic plug with views across St Brides Bay, Roch Castle was constructed in the late 12th century and then rebuilt as a private dwelling in the early 1900s. Restored by owner and architect Keith Griffiths, our hotel now sleeps 12 and has a gym a chapel and a rooftop sunroom.

Our bedrooms are tastefully decorated, chic and designed for ultimate comfort. Curved lime render walls, designer lighting and sleek furnishings are topped off by astonishing views. Our Court Room – the main sitting room – is made for relaxation. Settle into a brown suede sofa with a good book, or admire the hanging tapestry depicting the castle’s history. Keep an eye out for thought-provoking artworks displayed across our hotel, the castle acting as a contemporary, natural backdrop for a curated collection of works by just five artists.

Local attractions include the Pembrokeshire National Park, the Preseli hills and the rugged Welsh coast — just five minutes drive away is Newgale, a boundless strand popular with surfers.
