The nearest train station to the workshop is in Narberth, which is a small, picturesque town with independent shops, a good selection of lovely places to eat and is an ideal place to stay, particularly if you are visiting on your own.
If you’d like to park up and leave the car for a couple of days then Narberth town would be a good place to stay. Parking (outdoor) is very easy and quite inexpensive, including overnight stays. Narberth offers everything you’ll need including friendly locals and a good choice of cafes and restaurants. You will also be within only a few miles of the coast and National Park should you decide to explore the local area.
It’s advisable to have a car as public transport is very limited, but there are plenty of picturesque villages in the area for you to choose from, as well as ‘out of town’ pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy an evening meal.
