Quietly located duplex first-floor holiday apartment with parking for 1 car, offering a high standard of care and hospitality, situated in the heart of the historic city of St. Davids.
3 bedroom holiday apartment in a block of seventeen, within a short walk of shops, restaurants and pubs as well as the lovely medieval St Davids Cathedral.
Warm and spotlessly clean, this is a great apartment from which to explore the St.Davids area for up to 5 adults.
Carreg Fran offers comfort in a traditional style right in the heart of Britain's Smallest city with the added benefit of a designated parking space.
The apartment is fully furnished with an open plan living area on the first floor, with french doors leading to the balcony.
Three restful bedrooms on the second floor and a family bathroom.
Entrance to the apartment is via 13 steps up through the central courtyard.
A warm welsh welcome awaits at the weekly welcome meetings. Held each week they are a great way to find out about the best things to do in the area. In the summer, weekly barbeques are put on for guests. Food orders can be obtained ready for your arrival and left in your apartment.
Whitesands and the Peninsula beaches
Whitesands Beach is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach has lifeguard cover in the summer and surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach - so it is popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts. Whitesands is a lovely place to walk and when you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.
On the other side of the city - just two miles from the cottage and looking out over St Brides' Bay - is Caerfai Beach. The scenery is spectacular and the beach, reached down a steep path, is a wonderful rock-pooling, game-playing platform for sandy heaven.
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 Cathedral and the Bishops' Palace
St Davids Cathedral, both a historical monument as well as a place of worship, was built in 1181 and has weathered the centuries with varying fortunes. Visit the refectory in the newly restored cloisters for coffee or a meal and take time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place.
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.
Oriel y Parc
Oriel y Parc - the Tourist Information Centre, art gallery and café. In this interesting modern building you can gather information about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, useful maps and guidebooks, enjoy the art gallery with its resident exhibition of Graham Sutherlands work and programme of visiting artists - and then take breakfast or lunch at the Centre cafe.
Boat Trips book in St Davids to visit the offshore islands
Boat trips to suit all tastes leave from St Justinians during the season (April to October) to circle Ramsey Island and to see the marine wildlife, birds and spectacular Pembrokeshire coastal scenery.
Go dolphin and whale spotting too with longer trips out to Grassholm and the lighthouse! Book your tickets in St Davids.
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 Whitesands 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.
Family Days out in Pembrokeshire
Further south in the county there are theme parks galore with diversions for all the family. Look up Manor Wildlife Park, West Wales Karting, Hangar Five Trampolines, Oakwood Theme Park, Bluestone Water Park, Folly Farm Zoo and Heatherton for a good mix.
A Day Trip to Tenby
No visit to Pembrokeshire is complete without a trip to the celebrated seaside resort of Tenby with its characterful walled town, elegant candy coloured Georgian terraces, Tudor Merchant's House N.T. and five golden sandy beaches. Nearby are the award winning Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park for animal lovers of all ages.
