Each of the rooms have been recently refurbished to a high standard and are clutter-free, making it excellent for little ones and family pets. There are a variety of bedrooms on both ground and first floor, suitable for all of the family.
  • Step out into the garden from the kitchen French doors, to a lovely safe suntrap, fully enclosed this quiet haven is perfect for an alfresco breakfast or early evening barbecue.
  • Have a delightful day exploring St Davids independent shops and galleries. Ensure you take time out to enjoy a coffee and a slice of bara brith, or maybe dine at one of the many restaurants or excellent pubs serving local Welsh ales.
  • Walk down to Non’s Chapel, only 10 minutes away, where you are met by the magnificent vista of the Peninsula coastline. Walk East on the coastal path to the lovely Caerfai Bay, for rock pooling or a cooling dip.
  • If you’re feeling more energetic, head West past the pretty Porth Clais harbour, down to the beautiful Porthlysgi Bay, across to the new life boat station at St Justinians and finally reward yourself with an ice cream, as you dip your toes into the clear waters of the wonderful Blue Flag Whitesands Bay.
  • Further afield, explore the many attractions of the North Pembrokeshire National Park, only a short drive away, or take a day to discover all that the South of the Park has to offer. 



About The Area

Caerfai Beach and Whitesands Bay

  • A 15 minute walk leads to Caerfai Beach. This dog and family-friendly cove is perfect for sandcastles and rock pooling. A short drive will take you to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands – popular with families and surfers alike. The café serves breakfast and evening meals in the summer season or why not enjoy a takeaway and sit on the beach to see the spectacular sunsets.

St Davids shops, pubs and restaurants

  • With its splendid cathedral dating back to the 12th Century, Bishop's Palace, cafés and local produce, there is plenty to keep you occupied for days of browsing. Don't miss the country market on a Thursday between April and September. 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 café.

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; 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 St Davids 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 breathtaking coastline, all within the easy reach of a two mile radius.

Coastal Shuttle Buses convenient for Solva home from home

  • If you would like to leave your car behind, jump onto the local coastal bus service - and travel up or down the coast.  You can leave and join the bus at will and services run the length of the coastal path.

TYF Adventure Day

  • Do something a little different and get the adrenalin flowing on an adventure day out - kayaking, surfing, climbing or coasteering. Take a step into the unknown with the experienced guides at TYF (the booking shop is in the heart of St. Davids). But best of all experience it in the beautiful and rugged surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast.

 Solva

  • This is a pretty village with parking on the harbour-side. With the chinking of boat halyards in the background. Try Fish and Chips at '35' (next to the harbour car park) and investigate the shops - clothes and gifts, antiques, pottery and curios.  Walk along the Quay to the Café at the Yacht Club and enjoy a freshly caught crab sandwich and watch the boating activity. Make your way up to Middle Mill to visit and shop at the oldest working mill in Pembrokeshire. Colourful woven rugs and local craft of the highest quality will tempt you to take a part of Wales back home with you.

St Bride's Bay Water Taxi for Walkers

  • Solva Sailboats operate a water taxi which will take you to your chosen destination from where you can walk back along the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to Solva. Possible destinations include Porth Clais, Porthmynawydd, St Justinians, Nolton Haven and Little Haven (weather dependent). Phone 01437 720972.

Porthgain and Aberreiddy

  • A charming village with an attractive harbour. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was a flourishing seaport exporting slate and shale. Now it is a quaint harbour occupied with small fishing boats. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in or out at the Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed, where locally caught crab and lobster is also served. Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for the seals. Simply exhilarating.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

  • Further south in the county there are theme parks galore with diversions for families staying in Sunnyside.  Look up Manor Wildlife Park, Oakwood Theme Park, Bluestone, Folly Farm Zoo and Heatherton for a good mix.

Tenby South Pembrokeshire

  • Lots to see and do in Tenby at any time of the year, 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.
