Janet Cheetham - 27th June 2018

Very well appointed farmhouse, well equipped and very spacious. The only thing negative is that the small outside sitting area is at the back of the cottage with no view. The views from the house are excellent.

Robert Batten - 9th June 2018

Beautifully decorated cottage entirely in keeping with its period and surroundings. Gorgeous views and very peaceful, with just skylarks and cathedral bells breaking the silence.

Property Description
Traditional Pembrokeshire Farm Cottage between St Davids and Whitesands Beach. In an absolutely wonderful location, Wdig Cottage is a beautifully restored, traditional, Grade II listed Georgian Welsh Farmhouse now separated into two parts, the original Farmhouse (1826) and the Cottage (1733).
  • The outside of this Pembrokeshire farm cottage is a mixture of hanging slates and coloured pink lime wash surrounded by whitewashed stone farm buildings; the inside painted wood and comfortable furnishings.
  • The cottage is kept warm with a striking red Aga - including a conventional hob - and with an original inglenook fireplace which draws you in with a wood burning stove and antique settle.
  • Stairs to the first floor rise behind original panelling and lead to bedrooms with beamed ceilings and views to the south.
  • The cottage is set above the farm lane at the end of a half mile track, Whitesands beach is a short walk away across the fields.
  • The charming Pembrokeshire farm cottage looks out over moor and farmland with panoramic views encompassing the Preseli Hills, the Cathedral tower and roofs of St Davids and as far west as Skomer Island and Jack Sound. It is a spellbinding landscape.
  • The cottage can be rented together with the next door Wdig Farmhouse which sleeps 6 (ref. 1263), and also Wdig Wen for 6 (ref. 1517). The three properties would be perfect for groups of friends and family to have a big get-together, with endless things to see and do nearby.


About the Area
St Davids Cathedral and the Bishops' Palace
  • Visit the St Davids Cathedral 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. Dating back to 1181, the Cathedral is both a church and a historic building. Guide books and volunteer stewards are at hand to help you to understand some of its history and different fortunes across the centuries.
  • 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
  • St Davids is really only a village with city status. Well provided with a supermarket and butcher, greengrocer, post office, ice cream and chocolate shops and two banks, the village also has a number of galleries and shops - clothes, gift and outdoor gear. Come and browse or buy - it is a delightful place to while away your holiday!
Boat Trips and Activity Days
  • Book boat trips in St Davids either to land or sail around Ramsey Island. The sea, the cliffs and the wildlife are wonderful and outside the experience of many visitors. Taking a boat out to the island is a truly memorable event.
Middle Mill and Tregwynt Woollen mills
  • Visit the local woollen mills at Middle Mill and Tregwynt. These are historic mills producing fine locally designed woollen goods, popular both locally and in up-market designer outlets throughout the world.
St Davids Peninsula beaches
  • The St Davids Peninsula is blessed with a range of beaches to suit every taste and all are within easy reach of the Pembrokeshire farm cottage -Whitesands' wide sandy beach is great for surfing and sandcastles, kite flying, rock pooling and games of cricket; Caerfai has a steep walk down to a lovely south facing sandy beach, sheltered by the surrounding cliffs; Porthlisky beach is only accessible along the coast path and so is secluded and untroubled by the crowds; Caerbwdi is a stony beach with sand at low tide - the stone here was quarried to provide the purple stone of the cathedral.
Solva Harbour and coastal village
  • Solva is a real jewel of the west Wales coast. With its sheltered harbour it is an ideal place to sail, canoe or walk the beach or coast path. Afterwards you can relax and find refreshments while you visit the individual shops and galleries, pubs and restaurants that the village offers.
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). Phone 01437 720972.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
  • Resplendent in the spring and captivating at all times of year, the Pembrokeshire coastal path now forms a part of the Wales Coastal Path (formed in 2012) following the whole of the coastline of Wales. The St Davids Peninsula is encased in a section which will take your breath away - the colours of the sea and sky, the bird and wildlife, the fantastic flora - all combine to make an experience which draws visitors back year after year.
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.
Strumble Head
  • North Pembrokeshire has a dramatic and beautiful coastline. Sometimes wild and windy but always spectacular, Strumble Head is one of the best places in Britain to look out for passing pods of porpoises which surface in the tidal races just out beyond the point. Seals are often spotted in the sea below the lighthouse where a wartime lookout has been converted as a shelter for the public to use.
Fishguard and Goodwick
  • The town of Fishguard is an understated treasure and a busy community. Perched above the Lower town harbour with its boats and jumbled buildings, there are shops and banks, a cinema and sport centre as well as a number of places for the visitor to eat.
  • The ferry to Ireland comes in to the port at neighbouring Goodwick where passengers racing on their way to distant destinations can stop to fill up with petrol and provisions on the seafront. They would be foolish to miss the sleepy village and to take a moment to appreciate the craggy coastline and wide, boat-dotted harbour.
Art Galleries and craft
  • West Wales is famous for its artistic community - drawn in by the clear unpolluted light, uncrowded living and inspirational surroundings, there are artists, silversmiths, potters, glass makers, carvers and furniture makers - to name only a few. As you wander the countryside, their workshops and galleries are myriad - visit and enjoy the amazing quality and variety of their work.
Family Attractions
  • Tour the county to discover a diverse range of quality family attractions. Visit Dr Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen, Hangar 5 Trampolines, Castell Henllys reconstructed Iron Age settlement, Folly Farm, Blue Lagoon Water Park, Tudor Merchant's House Tenby (N.T.), Manor Wildlife Park and there are any more.
