Lovely cottage but didn't like being overlooked at the back of cottage. We found the upper floors to be very creaky so night time bathroom visits woke up everyone up including the dog downstairs !

From the owner:- “We’re grateful for your review and happy you found Bishops Cottage lovely. While we recognise the patio area and downstairs is overlooked, we can confirm that the upstairs has Velux to the rear and is not overlooked. Having such a central St David’s location means we have close neighbours. Bishops Cottage is a new build and has developed creaky floors. We have scheduled maintenance over the winter which will resolve this”. Thanks

Great location in the middle of St Davids and a comfortable cottage. Ideal for an out of season break

Bishop's Cottage has been a wonderful place to stay - homely and comfortable. We've taken trips to our usual haunts Solva and Folly Farm. Also enjoyed a walk around, Scolton Manor and a relaxing walk to Porth Clais! Thanks! X

Cottage perfect except wish there were blinds or nets on windows. Location the best we been in. We come every year to St David's or Solva but still enjoy ourselves as much as the first. Hope to be back again next year, thank you. PS. Thanks for the coffee, welsh cakes etc. It was a nice touch. Owner Comment - We decided against nets on our windows because the rear is Velux (integrated blackout blinds) and not over looked and the light is wonderful in Pembrokeshire so try to make the most of it - but thanks for the feedback.

We've had a fabulous week. The first half was amazing weather - beautiful sunny days. We had great walks to Whitesands, Broadhaven and Little Haven. Fantastic food at Cwtch, the Shed (Porthgain) and St David's kitchen. Bishop's Cottage is beautiful, so comfortable but stylish and well equipped. Thank you for the flowers - a little extra - so welcoming and we even saw St David's in the snow! Hope to stay again soon.

We've been very, very lucky with the weather and have therefore spent a great holiday in Wales. The coastal views are spectacular and the boat trip to Ramsey Island was an adventure. Thank you for giving us such a nice holiday home, we only missed one thing; a coffee machine. Owner comment - With regard to the coffee machine, we have considered this but unfortunately have concerns about the hygiene and maintenance. We therefore have chosen to offer cafetire with a complimentary bag of premium ground coffee to start you day. Enjoy!

What a wonderful week we have had in this fabulous cottage. We visit St David's every year and this is by far the best accommodation we have found - warm, cosy, welcoming and so well equipped. Weather has been great for walking the coastal path and visiting our favourite places. We'll be back. Thank you.

Great week in this lovely cottage. Went Sea Kayaking with TYF (highly recommend) and rib ride around Ramsey (saw lots of seals!). Went to see Shakespeare play at Bishops Palace.

A wonderful comfortable cottage in the perfect location. We've been incredibly lucky with the weather and have walked very day. Would definitely recommend a day on Ramsey Island. Cwtch was excellent for dinner. Thank you for providing such a perfect base for our holiday - we hope too return.

Yet again Pembrokeshire, St David's and Bishop's Cottage failed to disappoint. We had a lovely week here,weather was fantastic, just one day of rain and the cottage was as warm and cosy as we remembered. We plan to return.

About the Area
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.
