Location

The City of St Davids

  • Although St Davids has the status of a city it is in reality only the size of a small village. Useful as a source of groceries - there is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers, greengrocers, as well as a post office, ice cream and chocolate shop and two banks, there are also galleries and shops - clothes, gifts and outdoor gear. Come and browse or buy - it is a delightful place to while away your holiday!
  • Don't miss the outdoor farmers' market on Thursdays throughout the summer on the Cross Square - all sorts of local produce and tasty morsels.
  • In the evening visit Cwtch Restaurant, the St Davids Kitchen, the Bishops pub or Saffron Indian Restaurant – there is a good range of both fine dining and pub grub on offer in St Davids

Davids Cathedral and the Bishops' Palace

  • Tucked away in the valley below the town is St Davids' wonderful medieval Cathedral - take time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place.  Dating back to 1181, the Cathedral is both a church and a historic building. Guide books and volunteer stewards are at hand to help you understand some of its differing fortunes across the centuries. Perhaps have coffee or a meal in the remarkable refectory - a modern insert in the 14th century St Mary's Hall.
  • There is a full programme of music performed in the Cathedral throughout the year – culminating in the annual Cathedral Festival which draws national and international audiences.
  • Across the tiny river Alun is the ruined Bishops' Palace with its lovely decorated stonework, wheel window, halls and stairways. Restored sufficiently to fire the imagination of young and old, let your children play while they absorb the atmosphere of this site of medieval power and influence.

St Davids Peninsula beaches

  • The St Davids Peninsula is blessed with a range of beaches to suit every taste -Whitesands' wide sandy beach is great for surfing and sandcastles, kite flying, rock pooling and games of cricket;
  • Caerfai has a steep walk down to a lovely south facing sandy beach, sheltered by the surrounding cliffs;
  • Porthlisky beach is only accessible along the coast path - so secluded and untroubled by the crowds;
  • Caerbwdi is a stony beach with sand at low tide - the stone here was quarried to provide the purple stone of the cathedral.

Wonderful Coast Path Walks from your doorstep

  • Blow away the cobwebs with some stunning coastal walks. Head to the Coastal Path from Porthclais and it will take you round to St Non's Chapel and Holy Well which overlook the rocky coastline of St Bride's Bay.  This is a most idyllic and spiritual part of Pembrokeshire and thought to be the birthplace of St David.
  • The St Davids Peninsula is encased in a section of coast path which will take your breath away - the colours of the sea and sky, the bird and wildlife, the fantastic flora - all combine to make an experience which draws visitors back year after year.

 Coastal 'Shuttle' Busses

  • During the summer months there are the coastal shuttle busses which trundle round the lanes - ideal for hassle-free access to the Coastal Path and its beaches and coves. So leave your car behind and enjoy this beautiful part of Pembrokeshire without the worry of your carbon footprint or fuel bill.

Boat Trips and Offshore Islands - Adventures for both the brave and timid

  • When you have seen the coastline from the coastal path complete the experience by going to sea. The Pembrokeshire coast is Britain's only coastal National Park and is a treasure trove of birds and flowers, fish and marine mammals.  
  • Take a trip round Ramsey Island. Boats for both the brave and the timid leave from St Justinians and will take you round the Island and out to sea or to land and spend the day wandering this amazing, rugged Island. Crews complete the experience by giving a wealth of local information - it is the experience of a lifetime!
  • And for a really different day out – take the boat to land on Ramsey Island and wander the paths, enjoy the island wildlife and eat your picnic revelling in the quiet of the cliffs.

Outdoor Activities, horse riding and golf

  • Pembrokeshire is a centre for water-based activities of all sorts - home of the sport of 'Coasteering' it is also a magnet for surfers and windsurfers, sailors, canoeists and rowers. If you are skilled at your chosen sport the coastline is an open venue but if you are less experienced, the County is well served with centres offering safe, instructor-led activities.
  • There are golf courses to suit all levels of skill - with one of the most dramatic small courses overlooking White sands beach, just a few hundred yards up the road from the cottage.
  • A little further afield at Nolton Haven is a riding school with a difference.  Even experienced riders find it hard to top the experience of riding through the surf with Nolton Haven Riding Stables on the lovely beach at Druidston Haven.

Woollen Mills and Art Galleries

  • Visit the local woollen mills at Middle Mill and Tregwynt. These are historic mills producing fine locally designed woollen goods, popular both locally and in up-market designer outlets throughout the world.
  • West Wales is famous for its artistic community - drawn in by the clear unpolluted light, uncrowded living and inspirational surroundings. There are artists, silversmiths, potters, glass makers, carvers and furniture makers - to name only a few. As you wander the countryside, their workshops and galleries are myriad - visit and enjoy the amazing quality and variety of their work.

Solva harbour and fishing Village

  • Just three miles from St Davids, Solva is a picturesque harbour village with interesting small shops and galleries and a selection of pubs, restaurants and places to eat.  Window on Wales is a well-stocked gift and clothes shop which draws customers from across the County – well worth a visit!
  • The harbour is a constantly changing vista of boats and other water craft.  Play on the little beach, go crabbing on down by the boats or walk round to the Gwadn at low tide.
  • And at the end of the day enjoy tea and home-made cakes – or perhaps their famous fish and chips - in No 35, the café by the river. Welcome pets.

Druidston Haven and Little Haven

  • For a very special experience visit the beautiful unspoilt beach of Druidston Haven - bounded by towering rock faces, home to myriad sea birds and with more than a mile of smooth, golden sands at low tide.
  • Just above the beach is the Druidstone Hotel. With both bar and restaurants food and a great range of music and entertainment throughout the year, this is quite a find.
  • A little further round St Bride’s Bay is the quaint little village at Little Haven.  The beach is sand, the pubs are friendly and there is plenty of food to choose from.
Family Fun
  • Pembrokeshire has more than its fair share of amazing family attractions. Discover Castell Henllys Reconstructed Iron Age Settlement, Dr Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen, West Wales Karting, Folly Farm, Blue Lagoon Water Park, Oakwood Theme Park, Manor Wildlife Park, Tudor Merchant's House Tenby (N.T.) and more.
