R A Richards - 25th August 2018

Good location and parking. Lovely garden Spacious Clean. Could do with some more items in kitchen, better frying pan and 2nd frying/ sauté pan, small dishes / bowls for nibbles etc, only large bowls provided. Maybe a blind or curtain over front door for privacy when coming out of shower room to bedroom or at night for the loo.

A fantastic home , very well equipped and beautifully laid out . We lived virtually the whole time in the wonderful open plan kitchen , dining area . The dogs loved the very secluded walled garden and being so close to wonderful walks was a bonus . St Davids is such a lovely city .

1st visit here to this house . Very warm , comfortable & well equipped . The family room came in handy on a wet day , lovely and light to sit in . Great to be able to enjoy convenience of St Davids & a short walk to get to the coast path and the beach , the best of both worlds . We'll be back .

A lovely , very comfortable holiday home in a great location - with the benefit of a totally secure garden . We visited our usual favourite haunts and eateries , especially The Shed at Porthgain , Cwtch , St Davids kitchen ... and some breathtaking walks along the coast . We will certainly recommend Laurel Cottage to friends and family .

We've had a wonderful week in Laurel Cottage , St Davids . A must - 1 hour jet boat with thousand island expeditions round Ramsey Island - we can't recommend the trip enough . The Cwtch restaurant ( need to book ) , fabulous coastal walks - fish and chips at The Shed - Bishops Pub , both lovely . Really don't want to go home .

We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years but Laurel Cottage has to be one of the best . It's clean , comfortable , warm and very well equipped . The spotless condition on arrival was much appreciated , also the flowers , milk and wine - a big thank you . The pretty garden is safe and secure for our golden retriever to enjoy . It's a real home from home .We have enjoyed many coastal path walks , the area is very beautiful and scenic . We hope to return to this lovely cottage , maybe next year .

Absolutely beautiful house & garden . Loved all of it . Used the garden and games every hot evening . A heatwave week ! Never known the sea so warm so enjoyed this instead of walking as often too hot to walk far . Visited the area 18 times over as many years . Many thanks for the flowers an wine etc .

We have all had a wonderful stay at this gorgeous cottage & brilliant area . The cottage surpassed our expectations , with good quality fittings throughout & very dog friendly . Teddy loved the walled garden . So much still to do so we must come back again . The weather also has been fantastic - hot but not humid thanks to the sea breeze .

Another fantastic week of weather . Laurel Cottage made a perfect base for all our family to meet up . We loved the garden which was ideal for the dogs also . The house itself is very well laid out which made life so easy . The large Kit/Diner was great for catering , while those who needed to watch the World Cup could do so in peace . Everywhere was immaculate & worked very well . We also thought that the use of the garage for games and washing and drying was a great idea . Very Many Thanks Davies Family

Thank you for such a fantastic cottage, we couldn't fault it ! Bertie loved the walled garden-nice and safe and spacious. Everything was thought of, we basically lived in the kitchen/dining area , as the weather was super the folding doors were wide open. Looking already to book for next year . A Big Thank you !

About the Area

St Davids Cathedral and the Bishops' Palace

  • St Davids Cathedral, dedicated to Wales's Patron Saint, is a historic monument and a busy international music venue as well as a place of worship. Built in 1181, it has weathered the centuries with varying fortunes. In the most recent phase of conservation and building a modern refectory has been added to the newly restored cloisters. Visit 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 St Davids Bishops' Palace. Now in the guardianship of CADW, it is a ruin but it's lovely decorated stonework, wheel window, halls and stairways have been 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.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • From Laurel Cottage it is a mile's walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Either east or west, the cliffs are spectacular, with masses of bird and wildlife and a continually changing panorama of sea and sky.
  • Early in the year the paths are smothered in flowers - a very special time to visit!
  • If you want to walk further afield, take the local shuttle busses to join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which encircles the Peninsula.

Outdoor Activity and Boat Trips

  • There are all kinds of activities for families, groups or individuals on offer on the St Davids Peninsula.
  • Choose a jet boat or traditional cruising vessels to get up close to much of Pembrokeshire's exceptional marine wildlife and coastal scenery. Spot dolphins, porpoise and seals and an array of different sea birds. Tickets are available in St Davids.
  • Try surfing, coasteering, sea kayaking or cycling (bikes for hire locally) or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful beaches - Whitesands (2m), Caerfai (1m), Abereiddi (5m), Solva (3m) and Newgale(6m) are the closest.

Solva Woollen Mill

  • Visit the local historic woollen mills at Middle Mill and Tregwynt.
  • Tregwynt produces fine locally designed woollen goods, popular both locally and in up-market designer outlets throughout the world.
  • Solva Woollen Mill is now the oldest working woollen mill in continuous production in Pembrokeshire. As well as a colourful range of woollen goods, it produces carpets, stair runners and floor rugs. The owners are proud to have supplied a wall hanging and a carpet to the Prince of Wales for his Welsh retreat in Myddfai.
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.


  • On the north Pembrokeshire coast, just seven miles away is the village of Porthgain, an extraordinary village, rich in industrial archaeology but also an attractive harbour.
  • Eat at the Shed Bistro or the Sloop Inn and discover the work of local artist Alun Davies or the collection of art in the Harbour Lights Gallery. Keep your eyes open for new talent emerging.
  • If you visit on a calm Monday evening in summer you could even have a go at rowing a six-oared pilot gig!

Golfing in Pembrokeshire

  • Pembrokeshire has quite a variety of championship golf courses to choose from, many with excellent club house restaurants. Priskilly, Newport, Cardigan and Haverfordwest are all within easy reach.
  • Just two miles from Laurel Cottage, above Whitesands beach, is the St Davids City Golf Club - the most westerly golf course in Wales. This is a 9-hole course with 18 tees playable all year round. It boasts ‘no winter greens, no winter tees, no muddy feet - with fabulous views of Whitesands Bay, St Davids Head and Ramsey Island'.

Picton Castle & Gardens

  • Just the other side of the County town of Haverfordwest is Picton Castle with its extensive and lovely gardens. This beautiful castle, believed to have been built originally in the 13th century, has a rich history spanning nearly 800 years. Visit the house and gardens for a fascinating day out - and then perhaps have tea in its courtyard cafe.

Beach riding with Nolton Riding Stables

  • Nolton Haven is a pretty sandy cove at the back of St Brides Bay. Go up to the top of the village where the stables cater for beginners or experienced riders. Their instructors will check your riding requirements and offer you countryside trails or beach rides to suit.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

  • Further south in the county there are theme parks galore with diversions for all the family. Look up Oakwood Theme Park, Bluestone Water Park, Folly Farm Zoo, The Overhang Climbing Wall in Tenby, Manor Wildlife Park and Heatherton Sports for a good mix.

Charming St Davids cottage set inside a verdant walled garden, an ideal choice for extended families or friends sharing.
