A bespoke holiday apartment for 4 with a designated parking space set in the centre of St Davids, Britain's tiniest city.
Approach via a central courtyard and thirteen steps up to the first floor.
The light and bright sitting and dining area offers a warm welcome.
Enjoy convivial meal preparation in the well-equipped kitchen with electric cooker and under the counter fridge/freezer.
Sleep in comfort in the relaxing bedrooms upstairs. Here you'll find the ample bathroom with bathtub with a shower over.
Each week a Welcome Meeting is held to introduce guests to the delights of Pembrokeshire. You will pick up tips on where to go, what to do and what to see around the county.
Summer barbecues arranged by your hosts are a great way to meet new friends and exchange local knowledge.
Should you require a food order on your arrival that can be arranged too. Please ask in advance.
Just 15 minute walk from the Apartment 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.
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 a post office, ice cream and chocolate shop and two banks. 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.
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.
Solva village with its quaint picturesque harbour and small beach has lots to enjoy - fish for crabs from the harbour at high tide or rock-pool and paddle on the beach at low tide.
2 art galleries and a pottery to enjoy as well as a range of traditional shops including a post office/general stores (look out for the ever changing signs), cafes and pubs.
Try your hand at crabbing at Trinity Quay along the harbour - enjoy homemade cakes and ice-cream at the Yacht Club.
Solva Woolen Mill
Do visit the nearby Woollen Mill in its pretty setting in Middle Mill, Solva, patronised by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall who bought rugs and flatweave stair runners for their Welsh retreat in the Brecon Beacons. This is the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire with its original restored waterwheel - watch the working mill and then enjoy tea in the tea room and perhaps buy a souvenir in the mill shop.
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. Dont miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in - or outdoors the Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed where locally caught crab and lobster is also served.
Pembroke & Pembroke Castle
Pembroke is an historic town with its magnificent Norman Castle set high on a ridge between 2 tidal inlets and is famous as the birthplace of Henry VII and the Tudor Dynasty. Visitors are rewarded with a fascinating insight into the medieval lifestyle.
There are scenic walks nearby including one around the picturesque mill pond with its resident swans, herons and ducks. The high street, lined with predominantly Georgian buildings has a variety of restaurants, cafes.
