Property Description
 Lovingly restored, Maggie's Cottage combines character with tasteful home comforts, you will love the charming detail and freshly painted decor in this enchanting cottage, ideally located for exploring the many jewels of North Pembrokeshire.

  •  Wander in through the stable door to the light and airy open plan kitchen/diner and experience the freshness, warmth and welcoming ambience of this lovely cottage.
  • Enjoy meals, chatting and laughing together in the characterful dining area, glimpsing Carn Llidi mountain through the shuttered windows.
  • The dining room table is ideally placed to chat with the cook of the party whilst they rustle up some tasty holiday cooking in the well-equipped cottage kitchen.
  • Unwind on the large comfortable sofa in the sitting room after a day in the pure Pembrokeshire air, planning the next day's trips - there is so much at your fingertips to do and see in the area.
  • Relax on chillier evenings in the glow of the wood burner in the comfortable sitting room.
  • The sitting room gives access to the garden, an idyllic secluded haven bordered with mature shrubs and in the summer months an array of colourful blooms. Birds fill the air with their sweet song; the perfect spot for sunny al fresco dining or later in the day leisurely suppers under the starry skies.
  • Leading off from the sitting room, take precious time out on the large comfortable sofa in the snug and look out across the idyllic garden towards Ramsey Sound And Ramsey Island. Unwind with a good book or movie, indulging in some glorious 'nothing time'.... just what holidays are for!
  • Climb the stairs from the dining area to the beautifully appointed bedrooms - hushed rooms, immaculately presented with quality furnishings and crisp cotton linen, beckoning a restful night's sleep.
  • Take a minute on the landing to enjoy the view across meadows towards Carn Llidi 'mountain' - the colours and atmosphere of this ancient rock change with the seasons but also from moment to moment.
  • Tasteful pieces of art adorn the walls throughout the cottage mostly by local artists. Everywhere you turn, you'll find the thoughtful owner's touches, Laura Ashley throws and high-quality furnishings - you'll love the freshly painted shutters - all creating a very special, unique Welsh holiday cottage.
  •  Pack your walking boots to explore the unspoiled beauty of this remote countryside. Climb to the summit of Carn Llidi where from 'the top of the world' the land is laid out below you like a map with sweeping views across this wild and windswept peninsula covering the great sweep of the Pembrokeshire coast and South West Wales - on a clear day extending even to Wicklow Hills across the sea in Ireland.
About the Area

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • Walk from Maggie's Cottage to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which stretches the whole length of the Welsh coastline and encircles the St Davids Peninsula. Enjoy fabulous cliff top walking and breathtaking scenery within easy reach, never more than a couple of miles from the House.

  • The path follows the rugged coastline and encircles the peninsula through Whitesands, Porthsele, St Justinians, Porthclais and Caerfai Bay - walk as far as you like and get a dedicated walkers’ bus back. In the summer buses call in at all beaches, coves and villages along the coast.

Whitesands and the Peninsula beaches

  • Whitesands Beach, just down the road 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 - your dog can walk there too between October and the end of April - 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 is Caerfai Bay.  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!

  • Do visit Abereiddi Beach just a short drive away and the stunning Blue Lagoon, the rolling surf at Newgale and further along the coastline the golden sands and vibrant seaside villages of Broad Haven and Little Haven.

The City of St Davids

  • Although St Davids has the status of a city it is, in reality, a small village. Useful as a source of groceries - there is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers and greengrocers, as well as an ice cream and chocolate shop and a bank. 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.

  • There are plenty of places to eat out all serving tasty local produce. Choose from Cwtch, St Davids Kitchen and the local Indian Restaurant as well as 4 pubs. You will not be short of dining options from your doorstep.

St Davids Cathedral and the Bishop'sPalace

  •  Wander down through the Pebbles to the Cathedral and admire the view. 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 Bishop's Palace with its lovely decorated stonework, rose 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 Non's Chapel and Holy Well

  • Located on a stunning coastal site with dramatic views it is believed that St Non gave birth to St Davids at this very special place. It is wonderful for a picnic stop along the coast path.

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. It really is a must for your St.Davids stay.

  • Go dolphin and whale spotting too with longer trips out to Grassholm and the lighthouse!  Book your tickets in St Davids.

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 Sutherland’s work and programme of visiting artists - and then take breakfast or lunch at the Centre cafe.

Porthgain

  • 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 by small fishing boats. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in - or outside at Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed where locally caught crab and lobster are also served.

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 mile away.

  • 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
Working Woollen Mills
  • Visit Solva Woollen Mill. Visit Tregwynt Woollen Mill near Castlemorris, patronised by Prince Charles. Watch the millers using traditional methods to create old & contemporary designs. Browse the mill shop & enjoy refreshments in the cafe.
Castles 
  • Pembroke Castle, Carew Castle and Manobier Castle are all magnificent historic fortifications in South Pembrokeshire, hosting many events from pop concerts, proms, living history days, falconry displays, circus days, knight school for children etc.
