Beautiful house. Tasteful decor. Equipped to a high standard, lovely comfy beds. Master bedroom was a gorgeous space, two other rooms slightly lacking in storage, but we managed. Washing line was invaluable, maybe an airer, if , unlike us, the weather was poor.Kitchen and out door equipment were faultless. Great bathrooms, and living space. Position in St Davids was perfect. Town and beach a walk away. Thank you. Four adults, a toddler, a new baby and two dogs. Space for us all. Plus parking brilliant.

Such a lovely base for a holiday in St Davids. Very central, a little cut-through down the side of the house brings you into the centre, with all the shops and tourist attractions within walking distance. All the rooms were a good size, and there were very thoughtful touches around the house - extra hanging space, a BBQ, and loads of fresh towels. All mod cons, good drying facilities and plenty of hot water.

2 weeks of sunshine in Wales, unbelievable! Lovely cottage, great location and an unexpected beach holiday. If you get the sun, this is a little piece of paradise.

What a wonderful holiday! The cottage is comfortable, classy and extraordinarily well equipped! Great walks - Whitesands Bay was a great success with our 2.5 year old grandson. 'Cwtch' was a major success with the adults.Thank you, we would love to return.

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

St Davids shops, pubs and restaurants

  • Spend a few hours exploring the thriving ancient village city with It's charming collection of shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. Don't miss the country market on a Thursday between April and September.
  • At the top of the High Street in Oriel y Parc, you will find lots of information about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, useful maps and guidebooks as well as an art gallery and caf� serving breakfast and lunch.
  • Book a thrilling boat trip out to the internationally important bird islands. RSPB Ramsey Island just 1 km offshore has impressive sea cliffs teeming with seabirds and the coastal waters around are frequented by seals, dolphins and passing whales.

St Davids Cathedral and Bishops' Palace

  • Investigate the magnificent medieval Cathedral and ruined Bishops' Palace dedicated to Wales's Patron Saint. The Cathedral is a busy church but also an international venue for music throughout the year; at the end of May each year St Davids Cathedral plays host to an internationally renowned music festival with concerts taking place morning, afternoon and night, performed by some of Britain's finest musicians - a memorable and rewarding place to visit.
  • The Bishop's Palace will captivate your imagination (and your children's) and take you back to glories past.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • From Bishops Cottage you can walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, both east and west. The cliffs are spectacular; the bird and wildlife is captivating; the sea and sky a constantly changing panorama. The Coast Path circles the Peninsula offering miles of breath-taking coastline, all within the easy reach of a two-mile radius.
  • If you walk the coastal path round the Peninsula you will find a number of small coves and less accessible beaches - at many times of year you will have them to yourself!

St Davids Peninsula Beaches

  • Less than a mile from Bishops Cottage is Caerfai Beach. The scenery is spectacular and the beach, reached down a steep path, is popular for swimming and snorkelling as well as a wonderful rock pooling, game-playing platform for sandy heaven!
  • Just 2 miles to the west of St Davids, Whitesands Beach is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. This wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach has lifeguard cover in the summer; surf hire and surfing lessons are available at the beach. Popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts - your dog can walk there too between October and April. When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.

Boat Trips

  • Book your place on one of Pembrokeshire's most spectacular boat trips to visit the internationally important bird islands just off shore. Leave from St Justinians to visit Ramsey Island or from Martins Haven to visit Skomer Island. Expect to see a wealth of seabirds including delightful puffins, manx sheerwaters, gannets and more. Seals and occasionally dolphins are a regular site too.

Porthgain Village and harbour

  • Porthgain was a prosperous nineteenth century industrial harbour exporting slate from local quarries at Abereiddi and Porthgain itself. Now the village is popular for water sport enthusiasts - boaters, rowers, fishermen and canoeists - their activities overlooked by relics of the industrial past.
  • The village can be busy in summer. It is on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, served by the Strumble Shuttle (the local bus service) and offers the visitor galleries and a gift shop and refreshments at the popular Sloop Inn and Shed Fish Restaurant.

Abereiddi Beach and the Blue Lagoon

  • A short walk along the coast path from Porthgain is the hamlet of Abereiddi, with a pebbly car park and wide pebble and sand beach. The beach is popular for families - swimming, canoeing, eating ice cream and playing on the sand.
  • Just to the north is the famous Blue Lagoon where groups of hardy individuals take part in cliff jumping into the deep aquamarine water. The lagoon is an extraordinary remnant of past industry - the quarry now flooded with sea water at high tide, provides a calm deep pool for small boats and swimmers.

Working Woollen Mills

  • Just up the valley from Solva village, Solva Woollen Mill, patronised by Prince Charles, specialises in fabulous carpets, rugs and runners.
  • A little further up the north coast from Porthgain, Tregwynt Woollen Mill weaves traditional and contemporary designs for blankets, throws, cushions and soft furnishings. Their beautiful products are in demand worldwide.

Golfing Breaks Pembrokeshire Wales

  • St Davids Golf Course is a spectacular 9-hole course on the headland overlooking Whitesands Beach - a real challenge!
  • Family owned Priskilly Forest Golf Course is a 20 minute drive away. Open all year to visitors of any ability, it is a 9 hole gem, set amongst mature oaks, sycamores and rhododendrons and with panoramic views from Strumble Head to the Preseli Mountains. All your golfing requirements - either for purchase or hire - are available at the golf shop. The Club House also serves excellent food and drink.

Outdoor Activities in North Pembrokeshire

  • In St Davids, TYF Adventure offers a wide variety of activities and just down the road at Mathry, Preseli Venture offer instruction in sea kayaking and surfing. There is lots to choose from if you are looking for adventure!
  • Inland, explore the Preseli Mountains - wonderful views, hill walking, cycling or driving. Visit the mysterious and beautiful Gwaun Valley - a timeless world with hanging deciduous woodlands.

Tenby and Family Fun South Pembrokeshire

  • In the south of the county there is lots to see and do in Tenby at any time of the year. There are elegant boutiques, craft shops, museums and art galleries to browse, a large variety of eating places, pubs and ice cream parlours to tempt, boat trips, fishing, sailing, wind and kite surfing, spectacular cliff top walks and Blue Flag beaches to enjoy. Nearby animals lovers of all ages will appreciate a trip to award winning Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park.
