Why you love The Forge
We've had a superb week in the very comfortable Gorge. The weather has mostly been sunny with northerly breeze. We managed a brilliant trip out to Ramsey and saw lots of interesting birds. Also did some spectacular cliff walks to St Davids Head and around Porthgain.2 v. good eating places there. Also enjoyed the Cwtch restaurant in St Davids. The whole area is delightful and I'm sure we will return. Thank you for a lovely cottage.
Richard & Fran Fuller, Snowdonia
We were amazed at how well finished and luxurious The Forge was and the location couldn't be better. We loved having the log burning stove and really comfortable seating area to relax in on the evenings. We had everything we needed for our stay and more. I would give the bed 5 stars alone!We love Pembrokeshire and being in St Davids gave us the perfect base to explore everywhere.
Ben & Mageutaa
We have so enjoyed our stay at The Forge, a lovely mixture of new & old. So much to do around St Davids. We will definintely visit again. A visit to Picton Castle & Gardens is a must on a sunny day.
Bob & Jan
Lovely location, great week, nice property. Thanks to Louise, much appreciated.
Tony & Tracey
This was our first visit to the Forge in the picturesque city of St David’s. This charming apartment is light and airy, cosy and welcoming. We liked the combination of modern and antique style furniture; the kitchen is modern and functional and there is room for 4 at the table. The sitting area has comfortable settees and we could light the wood burning stove on chilly evenings. The bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable bed and ample storage space. The surprise was in the ensuite bathroom which boasts a copper bath! This is deep and I loved the luxury of a long soak; my husband favoured the shower! Good points are the utility room with washing/drying facilities and a private parking space. My husband and I loved our stay in this special 19th century former forge. Lots of history in the thick stone walls. We will definitely return to visit the city again and explore more of the stunning countryside and beaches of this area.
