About The Area

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • Walk from the apartment 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 Apartment.

  • 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 busses call in at all beaches, coves and villages along the coast.

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.

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.

Whitesands and the Peninsula beaches

  • Whitesands Beach 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 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 - just two miles from the cottage 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!

Golf Club at St Davids

  • Within a mile and a half of the apartment is St Davids City Golf Club, the most westerly golf course in Wales.  This 9 hole course with 18 tees is playable all year round - no winter greens, no winter tees, no muddy feet - and has fabulous views overlooking Whitesands Bay, Ramsey Sound and the infamous 'Bitches' stretch of water just south of St Davids Head.

Solva Village

  • 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.Porthgain
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 with small fishing boats. Don’t 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.

Abereiddy and the Blue Lagoon

  • Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Aberreiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for the seals. Try coasteering. Simply exhilarating.
Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park
  • An impressive and diverse selection of animals are on view at award winning Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park in the south of the county. A 'must do' visit for all animal lovers. Expect to see giraffes, rhinos,lions, tigers, gibbons, lemurs, zebras, penguins, ostriches and more.
Enjoy year round holidays and experience the wow factor when staying in Britain's smallest characterful city of St Davids.
