This beautifully converted stone barn conversion offers a fabulous tranquil setting on the outskirts of the historic city of St. Davids, with views of Porthclais Harbour to the South West.
An amazing place to spend a few day, warm cosy and kept to a very high standard, the milk in the fridge was a very welcome surprise meaning the kettle could go on as soon as we stepped in the door making it feel like home straight away! I would definitely recommend!

Thank you for your review, the owners work hard to ensure that guests have a great stay and that the property is warm and welcoming after a long drive.
Stylish and comfortable. The heating in the bedroom/shower room was a bit tricksy, but Gary did all he could to sort it out. We had a lovely, relaxing break.
A well equipped and comfortable cottage in an excellent location. Our only reservations are - There was no coffee making equipment.. We only had a few logs for the wood burner and would have expected more for the four nights we were staying. We followed the instructions for increasing the heating with no results. This was during a very cold period. We even tried searching the internet for advice but were still unable to increase the temperature. There were no instructions on how to lock the key safe as we left.
Peaceful location. Great walking base around St Davids. Cottage well maintained as only recently refurbished. would love to go back

Caerfai Beach and Whitesands Beach
Caerfai Beach is a short drive away - a family-friendly cove perfect for sandcastles and rock pooling. On the other side of the peninsula Whitesands Beach is a surfer's paradise, at low tide the huge expanse of sand is great for football or cricket, games of chase or flying a kite.
Just a mile away, is Britain's smallest city but really only the size of a village, full of interesting shops, galleries, crafts and a choice of places to eat and drink. Enjoy delicious wholesome food at The Refrectory served in the stunning Cathedral setting. Do try The Bench with its homemade ' Italian' ice cream. Oriel Y Parc Caf© offers breakfast and lunches with locally sourced produce and whilst there Oriel Y Parc Gallery is well worth a visit.

A test of concentration. The wonderful coastal views of Whitesands Bay and Ramsey Island are sure to tempt you from your game on this 9 hole links course.
Solva Harbour and coastal village
Solva is a real jewel of the west Wales coast. With its sheltered harbour it is an ideal place to sail, canoe or walk the beach or coast path. Afterwards you can relax and find refreshments while you visit the individual shops and galleries, pubs and restaurants that the village offers.
Solva Woollen Mill
One of 26 woollen mills in the county in 1900, this 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 and has supplied a wall hanging and a carpet to the Prince of Wales for his Welsh retreat in Myddfai.
North Pembrokeshire has a dramatic and beautiful coastline. Sometimes wild and windy but always spectacular, Strumble Head is one of the best places in Britain to look out for passing pods of porpoises which surface in the tidal races just out beyond the point. Seals are often spotted in the sea below the lighthouse where a wartime lookout has been converted as a shelter for the public to use.
Fishguard and Goodwick
The town of Fishguard is an understated treasure and a busy community. Perched above the Lower town harbour with its boats and jumbled buildings, there are shops and banks, a cinema and sport centre as well as a number of places for the visitor to eat.
Days out in Pembrokeshire should include a trip to Picton Castle. With some of the biggest and oldest trees in West Wales, a maze, a walled garden and a fernery and when you have exhausted yourself in the woodland walks, a cafe serving really tasty homemade food. Picton Castle is a real delight. It also now features a collection of birds of prey in the Owl Garden ,so why not see some amazing birds in flight .
