Lamphey is a village near the south coast of Pembrokeshire, Wales, two miles east of Pembroke and two miles from the seaside village of Freshwater East.HistoryLamphey is a small village with an estimated population of 250 to 300 people, a short distance from the historic town of Pembroke, the birthplace of Henry VII, father of Henry VIII.The village includes an historic parish church and a palace known as 'Bishops Palace' due to its use by the Bishops of St David's. The palace, established in the 13th century, included fishponds, fruit orchards, vegetable gardens and sweeping parklands and with suitable accommodation had become a favourite residence of the Bishops by the early 14th century. The building was mainly the work of Henry de Gower, Bishop of St David's from 1328 to 1347, who was also largely responsible for the bishop's palace alongside St David's Cathedral.In the fast-disappearing Pembrokeshire dialect, Lamphey was pronounced "Lam-fa" rather than the more usual "Lam-fey".AmenitiesThe village has one pub, two hotels and restaurants, a primary school, service station, hair studio, playing fields, a village hall (completed in 2007), and a local bakery which has served the community for generations. The Lantern Grill, a small restaurant, was refurbished in 2007 and is now known as 'The Lantern'.
