  • The modern kitchen is fully fitted with funky white cabinets and all the mod cons you could need for culinary inspiration to create your perfect holiday meal.
  • A bold statement staircase leads the eye and the curious up to four charming bedrooms, each creatively styled with traditional Welsh blankets and striking duvets for the children.
  • It is the master bedroom that enjoys the jackpot views however, open up the dorma windows and gaze out over to the Cathedral and to the distant sea views. A welcome retreat for star spotting as well.
  • Located away from the rear of the house, along a shared access path, is the secluded garden with outdoor furniture to enjoy balmy evening meals alfresco.
  • Superb attention to detail ensures a real homely feel. All the styling comes from the heart of the owners who cleverly combine welcoming interiors with thoughtful, retro touches to create a relaxed style holiday home.

St Davids shops, pubs and restaurants

  • Spend a few hours exploring the thriving ancient village city with Its charming collection of shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. Don't miss the country market on a Thursday between April and September.
  • At the top of the High Street in Oriel y Parc, you will find lots of information about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, useful maps and guidebooks as well as an art gallery and café serving breakfast and lunch.
  • Book a thrilling boat trip out to the internationally important bird islands. RSPB Ramsey Island just 1 km offshore has impressive sea cliffs teeming with seabirds and the coastal waters around are frequented by seals, dolphins and passing whales.

St Davids Cathedral and Bishops' Palace

  • Investigate 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; at the end of May each year St Davids Cathedral plays host to an internationally renowned music festival with concerts taking place morning, afternoon and night, performed by some of Britain's finest musicians - 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 The Coastguard's House 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 breath-taking coastline, all within the easy reach of a two-mile radius.
  • 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 Peninsula Beaches

  • Less than a mile from Coastguard's House is Caerfai Beach. The scenery is spectacular and the beach, reached down a steep path, is popular for swimming and snorkelling as well as a wonderful rock pooling, game-playing platform for sandy heaven!
  • Just 2 miles to the west of St Davids, Whitesands Beach is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. This wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach has lifeguard cover in the summer; surf hire and surfing lessons are available at the beach. Popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts - your dog can walk there too between October and April. When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.

Porthgain Village and harbour

  • Porthgain was a prosperous nineteenth century industrial harbour exporting slate from local quarries at Abereiddi and Porthgain itself. Now the village is popular for water sport enthusiasts - boaters, rowers, fishermen and canoeists - their activities overlooked by relics of the industrial past.
  • The village can be busy in summer. It is on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, served by the Strumble Shuttle (the local bus service) and offers the visitor galleries and a gift shop and refreshments at the popular Sloop Inn and Shed Fish Restaurant.

Abereiddi Beach and the Blue Lagoon

  • A short walk along the coast path from Porthgain is the hamlet of Abereiddi, with a pebbly car park and wide pebble and sand beach. The beach is popular for families - swimming, canoeing, eating ice cream and playing on the sand.
  • Just to the north is the famous Blue Lagoon where groups of hardy individuals take part in cliff jumping into the deep aquamarine water. The lagoon is an extraordinary remnant of past industry - the quarry now flooded with sea water at high tide, provides a calm deep pool for small boats and swimmers.

Working Woollen Mills

  • Just up the valley from Solva village, Solva Woollen Mill, patronised by Prince Charles, specialises in fabulous carpets, rugs and runners.
  • A little further up the north coast from Porthgain, Melin Tregwynt weaves traditional and contemporary designs for blankets, throws, cushions and soft furnishings. Their beautiful products are in demand worldwide and can the throws can be seen on the beds of this delightful property.
