Guest Book Comments

On the first day we got here we entered the code and came in and I was stunned! I wasn't expecting the cottage to be so nice and cosy. We stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. Love Meabh age: 9 and 3 months.

Loved this accommodation. Decorated to a very high standard, very well equipped and so comfortable. We really enjoyed walks along the coastal path and loved St David's. Ate out at the Farmer's Arms, The Bishop's and Saffron – all good but our favourite was The Shed at Porthgain. Would definitely recommend this cottage and the area.

Wonderful cottage, decorated and equipped with love; we loved the coastal path and the Cathedral is amazing. Wonderful stay!

We have stayed in many rental cottages and apartments in the UK and in Europe, but this is my favourite of them all. As an artist and illustrator, I love the high quality local Art on the walls and other surfaces. This is so well decorated and appointed – it is a joy to be here. We will return.

We have had great week in this very comfortable and well equipped house; it has been refurbished to a high standard and we loved all the art and decorative touches. The weather has been amazing, meaning several beach days and walks along the coastal path enjoying the beautiful spring flowers – nothing better than yellow gorse against blue skies. Can highly recommend Cwtch for a special dinner and a visit to Skomer.

What a well equipped and lovely standard of house, thank you! Aber Mawr is rocky but fun, Caerfai was lovely. Preseli Hills are great!

Had a lovely Christmas week in this delightful conversion. Spacious and well equipped, especially the kitchen. Loved doing a jigsaw on the dedicated jigsaw table. Thank you for all the goodies.

What an amazing place to stay – thank you! It's been such a comfortable place to rest our weary limbs after hours of enjoying the coastal path. Totally exceeded our expectations! Superb location too – walk around St David's Head easily accessible and a stroll down to St Justinian's for a boat trip was epic. Loved every minute and can't wait to return.

it was more expensive than the quality caravans we have hired in the past but vastly superior. Well worth the money

Diane Ingrey - 25th July 2018

The Granary was a great place to stay and the well gift was lovely. It was a perfect location for exploring the city and surrounding areas. The weather was perfect for days spent on the beach and lovely walks along the Coastal path.

Property Description

St Davids Granary is the upper 2 floors of a grade 2 listed historic property, full of character and presence, with all of St Davids, right on your doorstep.

  • This historical landmark has been sympathetically converted to provide stylish contemporary living, combining modern comforts with respect to the past.
  • It can be rented alongside its sister property below - ref. 1374 The Forge sleeping 2 adults.
  • Walk up the stone steps to the front door, where once heavy sacks full of grain would have been hauled, and enter this imposing building which originally stored and dried the locally harvested threshed grain above the city's forge.
  • You can immediately sense the warmth and character this 5* historic home exudes, from the exposed vaulted beamed ceilings to the solid stone walls. This is a somewhere you feel safe and sound, a place to relax and unwind, hidden away in your very own citadel.
  • You will not fail to be impressed with the consistent high quality of the Granary's interior, from the modern well equipped kitchen and beautiful farmhouse dining table to the contemporary designed stair that illuminates your way as you ascend.
  • The spacious open plan lounge, at the top of the Granary, spans the central stair, providing two distinct areas to relax in and enjoy. The first has cosy sofas to sink into and a large TV to enjoy a family movie or two, while the second has additional seating and a contemporary trestle desk.
  • The two twin bedrooms on the ground floor, one of which has an en-suite shower room, are comfortably furnished with the added bonus of an X Box and games. While the master bedroom on the top floor has an enormous beautiful chrome metal bed and en-suite Jack & Jill style bathroom.
  • Original local artwork and artefacts adorn each of the stone walls and spaces, however, it is the wonderful views of the Cathedral tower, Bishops Palace and Carn Llidi, that really steal the show.
  • An historic home perfect to explore all that the St Davids Peninsula and National Park has to offer. 



About the Area

Whitesands Bay

  • A short drive will take you to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands – popular with families and surfers alike. The café serves breakfast and evening meals in the summer season or why not enjoy a takeaway and sit on the beach to see the spectacular sunsets.

The City of St Davids

  • Although St Davids has the status of a city it is really a small village. There is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers, greengrocers, as well as a post office, ice cream and chocolate shop and two banks.  There are also galleries and gift shops, well worth a visit - clothes, gifts and outdoor gear. Come and browse or buy - it is a delightful place to while away your holiday!
  • On Thursdays on the Cross Square there is an outdoor farmers' market throughout the summer (it is held in the City Hall in the Winter months) - all sorts of local produce and tasty morsels. 

St Davids Cathedral and Bishops' Palace

  • Discover the magnificent medieval Cathedral and ruined Bishops' Palace dedicated to Wales's Patron Saint. The Cathedral is a busy church but also an international venue for music throughout the year; a memorable and rewarding place to visit. The Bishop's Palace will captivate your imagination (and your children's) and take you back to glories past.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • From St Davids you can walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, both east and west. The cliffs are spectacular; the bird and wildlife is captivating; the sea and sky a constantly changing panorama. The Coast Path circles the Peninsula offering miles of breathtaking coastline, all within the easy reach of a two mile radius.

TYF Adventure Day

  • Do something a little different and get the adrenaline flowing on an adventure day out - kayaking, surfing, climbing or coasteering. Take a step into the unknown with the experienced guides at TYF (the booking shop is in the heart of St. Davids). But best of all experience it in the beautiful and rugged surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast.

Coastal Shuttle Busses

  • If you would like to leave your car behind, jump onto the local coastal bus service - and travel up or down the coast. You can leave and join the bus at will and services run the length of the coastal path.

Solva

  • This is a pretty village with parking on the harbour-side. With the chinking of boat halyards in the background. Try Fish and Chips at '35' (next to the harbour car park) and investigate the shops - clothes and gifts, antiques, pottery and curios.  Walk along the Quay to the Café at the Yacht Club and enjoy a freshly caught crab sandwich and watch the boating activity. Make your way up to Middle Mill to visit and shop at the oldest working mill in Pembrokeshire. Colourful woven rugs and local craft of the highest quality will tempt you to take a part of Wales back home with you.

St Bride's Bay Water Taxi for Walkers

  • Solva Sailboats operate a water taxi which will take you to your chosen destination from where you can walk back along the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to Solva. Possible destinations include Porth Clais, Porthmynawydd, St Justinians, Nolton Haven and Little Haven (weather dependent). 

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 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 out at the Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed, where locally caught crab and lobster is also served. Walk along the coast path to the amazing Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy. A former slate quarry with unnaturally blue water. Look out for the seals. Simply exhilarating.
Rhos y Gilwen 
  • 'Music at its best'. This music and arts centre hosts outstanding artists and performers from Wales and all over the world in the splendid Oak Hall in the heart of Pembrokeshire.
St Davids Music festival
  • A celebrated annual extravaganza of classical and contemporary music played in magnificent St Davids Cathedral during the last week of May and first week of June.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

  • Further south in the county there are theme parks galore with diversions for families.  Look up Oakwood Theme Park, Bluestone, Manor Wildlife Park, Folly Farm Zoo and Heatherton for a good mix.

Tenby South Pembrokeshire

  • Lots to see and do in Tenby at any time of the year, elegant boutiques, craft shops, museums and art galleries to browse, a large variety of eating places, pubs and ice cream parlours to tempt, boat trips, fishing, sailing, wind and kite surfing, spectacular cliff top walks and Blue Flag beaches to enjoy.
