Guest Book Comments

Perfect cottage, lovely coastal walks & the weather has been perfect. Had some good meals in the Bishops pub St Davids and the ice-cream place, Giannis, was delicious. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time staying here. The cottage is lovely. The weather was lovely and warm. The ice-cream was delicious while we were here. We went on a speedboat to Ramsey Island and saw loads of seals and choughs. We also went on lots of beautiful walks. We went to Whitesands beach and the water was freezing!

This was a very nice house to stay in with big airy rooms. While we were here we had a trip on a speedboat to Ramsey Island and we all got soaking wet! We also went to Whitesands beach where I went surfing even though the sea was freezing. On our walks we saw amazing wildlife and a beautiful view from the top of St Davids Head.

We have had a very enjoyable time staying here in Porthclais Cottage. The coastline walks have been some of the best we have ever experienced. We were even able to watch the archaeological dig at Whitesands beach. Look forward to returning one day.

We loved the house and had loads of great adventures including climbing, surfing, boating, fishing, crabbing, shooting, horse riding along the beach, eating, swimming and walking along the fabulous Pembrokeshire coastline. The house is a stunning base for all activities. Thanks so much.

We have had 6 wonderful days in this beautiful cottage, 4 days of glorious sun and 2 days of stormy and rainy weather. We've hiked along the coastal paths, tried coasteering, enjoyed the New Year concert in the Cathedral and celebrated New Year in the Bishop's pub. Thanks a lot!

About the Area

Wonderful Coast Path Walks from your doorstep

  • Blow away the cobwebs with some stunning coastal walks right from your doorstep. Head left on the Coastal Path from Porthclais and it will take you round to St Non's Chapel and Holy Well which overlook the rocky coastline of St Bride's Bay - a most idyllic and spiritual part of Pembrokeshire and thought to be the birthplace of St David. Carefai Bay is a beautiful sandy cove a little further one and is good for swimming and snorkelling or just enjoying the sandy beach.
  • The St Davids Peninsula is encased in a section which will take your breath away - the colours of the sea and sky, the bird and wildlife, the fantastic flora - all combine to make an experience which draws visitors back year after year.

St Davids Peninsula beaches

  • The St Davids Peninsula is blessed with a range of beaches to suit every taste - Whitesands' wide sandy beach is great for surfing and sandcastles, kite flying, rock pooling and games of cricket;
  • Caerfai has a steep walk down to a lovely south facing sandy beach, sheltered by the surrounding cliffs;
  • Porthlisky beach is only accessible along the coast path and so is secluded and untroubled by the crowds;
  • Caerbwdi is a stony beach with sand at low tide - the stone here was quarried to provide the purple stone of the cathedral.

St Davids, Britain's Smallest City

  • St Davids is the United Kingdom's smallest city, earning that status thanks to the magnificent medieval cathedral. Set in the valley below the town and placed to be out of sight of marauding viking invaders, it is a venue for services and concerts throughout the year and never fails to delight.
  • The stylish Oriel y Parc Gallery in St Davids is the local Tourist Information Office run by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It houses the Graham Sutherland Collection and has a rotating exhibition by local Artists in Residence and also an independently run cafe offering delicious meals and snacks in convivial surroundings.
  • St Davids has various interesting shops to browse, places to eat and galleries on offer - or visit the weekly Farmers' Market on the Square and stock up with delicious local produce.

Solva Village, Pembrokeshire

  • Solva village with its quaint picturesque harbour and small beach has lots to enjoy - fish for crabs from the harbour at high tide, rock-pool and paddle on the beach at low tide or take a boat trip around the bay.

  • The Cambrian is a 16th century village pub serving great food.
  • Along the harbour - homemade cakes and ice-cream can be found at Caf© '35' by the river.
  • The Ship Inn, a pet friendly cosy local pub with pleasant garden, serves good food in a warm and convivial atmosphere.

Porthgain and Aberreiddy

  • 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 inhabited by small fishing boats. Don't miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return.
  • Have dinner in- or out-of-doors at the Sloop Inn or enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed Bistro where locally caught crab and lobster is also served.
  • Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Aberreiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for seals. Simply exhilarating.

Melin Tregwnynt Woollen mill

  • A beautiful whitewashed mill, to be found in a remote forested valley. Working since the 17th century making beautiful blankets, throws and cushions in the traditional way. They are ideal to snuggle under on a winter's day Don't miss the opportunity to buy one.

Druidstone Hotel & Druidston Haven

  • Druidstone Hotel is a treasure not to be missed - tucked into the cliff at Druidston Haven and offering fine food and a stunning view for the diner. Watch Nolton Stable's riders galloping across the sands from the delightful clifftop garden.
