About Gwynfryn

Just off the main road into the historic and popular tiny city of St Davids, with its famous cathedral and Dickensian streets, lies the stunning traditional Pembrokeshire farmhouse at Gwynfryn. With its own private access lane leading you away from the action towards your own private holiday retreat, Gwynfryn takes in the countryside views towards the cairns that divide the surrounding farmland from the stunning Pembrokeshire coast.

This time-honoured farmhouse, which has stood on this spot for generations, has been transformed from its original use to a beautiful, serene holiday home for up to 6 people. Set in a rural location, Gwynfryn feels like stepping back in time, with exposed wooden beams hinting at the building's longevity and history.

With three comfortable bedrooms, one king downstairs next to its own shower room, and one twin and one double upstairs, this property generously houses 6 guests in its whitewashed walls. Each room has its own wardrobe space as well as views out towards green fields, with the call of sea birds and owls to be heard as you fall asleep.

The living area is open plan; the lounge is centred around the old inglenook with its traditional wooden beam above, now a space for an electric log burner, and for curling up on one of the two couches or armchairs to watch a movie on the wall-mounted TV.

The dining area is at the other side of the staircase, with a large oak dining table seating 6 people - another nod to the building's heritage and a good, filling Welsh supper!

A galley kitchen services the home, its shaker cupboards containing a fridge/freezer, a modern oven with hobs, a dishwasher, a washer and dryer - everything you could need from your home away from home, but with stunning views as you wash up after a delicious family meal.

This location really is the perfect place to spend your holiday. Your undisturbed accommodation is less than half a mile from shops, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, and events, as well as the nearby coastal spots of St Non's Chapel and the ancient port of Porthclais, you're also under 3 miles from the popular sandy stretch at Whitesands.

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 is the smallest city in Europe and was named so due to its large cathedral, built in homage to the patron saint of Wales, David, in the valley where he ran a monastic community in 500 AD. The cathedral is now home to David's remains and has been a place of pilgrimage since it was re-built by Normans after Viking ransacking in 1087. Nearby, his place of birth at the chapel of St Nons, named after his mother, is a spot to watch sea birds and coastal flowers. A short walk out of the city takes you to Porthclais, the ancient port of St Davids and a popular spot for taking boat trips or canoes out around St Davids Head.

Back in the city, the small, narrow streets are colourful and bustling, with boutique shops and artisan food suppliers peddling snacks, goods, and quirky mementos of your trip, as well as being home to the local supermarket, tourist information centre, boat trip booking offices, and the nearest petrol station. There's also a fantastic market on the Cross Square every Thursday.

Nearby, the beaches of the peninsula await you. Whitesands is the most popular and most well-known beach, probably due to the ease of access - it has a large car park, slipways onto the beach, a lifeguard station, a fantastic cafe, and ice cream stalls and surf hire companies often pitch up here when the weather is hot. For budding archaeologists, the remains of St Patrick's Church, a Dark Age remnant, is just visible in the sand dunes to the right of the car park - look for the trenches and bumps in the dunes where Dyfed Archaeology dig up the bones of our ancestors on their yearly dig.

Head south on the coast path and out towards St Justinians for spectacular views of Ramsey Island. From here, take a boat around the islands to see Pembrokeshire's cutest summer residents, the puffins. Skomer is the best place for viewing these magnificent little creatures, usually inhabiting the RSPB Reserve here between April and August.

South of St Davids, stretching around St Bride's Bay, you'll find pretty fishing villages and resplendent beaches all the way down towards Milford Haven to the South, including popular surf spot, the pebble beach of Newgale.

At Solva, you'll find boats bobbing in the ancient, natural harbour, and pretty sailors houses and little side streets galore. This is a lovely spot to take the children crabbing off the harbour, with some fantastic places to have lunch, such as The Cafe on the Quay, Thirty-Five Main Street, and Mamgu Welshcakes.

North from your accommodation, about a 10 minute drive away on the old coastal road, you'll find the stunning beach and impressive ruined mine at Abereiddy. The mine itself was blasted to allow sea water in years ago, when the industry ended here. Now, the ore left exposed in the deep mine shaft makes the water glint a fantastic turquoise colour, which gives this popular swimming and coasteering spot its name - The Blue Lagoon.

Coasteering was born on these very rocks - a popular watersport in Pembrokeshire, it consists of scrambling rocks, swimming, and diving from ledges and cliffs into the sea. There are several instructors who can take you out as a family or group, such as MUUK UK and TYF.

In neighbouring Porthgain, the remnants of the brick-making buildings are tucked into the rock face, their fading grandeur emulating a sunset. The old harbour here is something you'd expect to see in Cornwall, and the ancient inn The Sloop was a popular thirst-quenching stop for the fishermen who set sail from this historic village. Now, they serve excellent meals and local ales. If you'd rather fish and chips, The Shed restaurant offers takeaways or, for a fine dining fish experience, book a table inside and sample the best fresh produce.

Wherever you are on the St Davids peninsula, you're always close to its 186-mile long coast path. Pembrokeshire is the only coastal national park in the UK, and its shores really are something to behold. The St Davids Peninsula is encased in a section that will take your breath away - the colours of the sea and sky, the birds and wildlife, the fantastic flora and vibrant coastal flowers all combine to make an experience which draws visitors back year after year.
