About the Area

St Davids shops, pubs and restaurants

  • Spend a few hours exploring the thriving ancient village city with it¬ís charming collection of shops, galleries, bars and restaurants.
  • At the top of the High Street in Oriel y Parc, you will find lots of information about the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park as well as a class A National Museum Wales art gallery and caf√© 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 take you back to glories past.¬†

Twr y Felin Hotel, St Davids

  • Enjoy a celebratory dinner at Twr y Felin Hotel, the sister hotel to The Priory. Complimentary transfers are available to and from The Priory to Blas Restaurant ¬Ė a two AA rosette restaurant offering fine dining and a menu inspired by the seasons and local produce.

Whitesands Bay

  • Just 1.5 miles from the Priory is 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.
  • When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.
  • St Davids Golf Course is a spectacular 9 hole course on the headland overlooking Whitesands Beach - a real challenge!¬†

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • 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!

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.

Indulgent luxurious holidays can be enjoyed in this prestigious retreat in Britain's tiniest characterful city of St Davids on the north Pembrokeshire coast.
