Guest Book Comments

The Cottage was in a lovely spot close to the coast. It was toasty warm with underfloor heating that proved necessary as it was cold, wet and windy for most of my stay. It was quite a comfortable cottage but the bathroom turned out to be a wet room downstairs with nowhere to put anything. I think the downstairs wet room should be stated in the description as navigating past the stair gate in the middle of the night can be tricky! The main bedroom also had nowhere to place cosmetics and hairbrush etc in front of a mirror so I had to use the chest of drawers in the second bedroom. I think the property was quite 'blokey', so what I consider essential items were missing such as a hairdryer, oven gloves, wooden spoon, baking tray and washing line. Other Qualty Cottages have also had a cafetiere, kitchen roll and tissues but maybe those cannot be considered essential items. I was able to buy these in St David's. It was quite funny that the books were about rugby, golf or pub jokes! The welcome pack was very generous and much appreciated. Thank you.

Easy to find, lovely location, far-reaching views from the Chapel. Well furnished and decorated. Kitchen had everything you could want and was very well laid out. The under floor heating was a luxury, as was the hot tub after a day's walking on the coastal footpath. We really enjoyed a relaxing week here. Have already recommended to friends and family.

Wonderful holiday - a lovely cottage.

J Morgan - 25th September 2018

Poor description advertised as did not mention the height restrictions in the bathroom or bedrooms. Also the finish of the conversion was extremely poor with floors not meeting walls, washing machine breaking down, tiles coming off the shower, shower which did not drain, damp in the utility area, walls not plastered just skimmed, a windows which were nailed into place which caused an injury which has still not healed, lack of hot tub for 1st week. Not including the mice and rats which visited!

About the Area

The City of St Davids (Britain's smallest city)

  • Just a mile and a half from the Chapel is the tiny city of St Davids - which is in reality 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 galleries and also gift, clothes and outdoor gear shops - well worth a visit. 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 Justinians - Lifeboat Stations & Voyages of Discovery Boat Trips

  • Just a couple of hundred yards from the cottage is the little cove at St Justinian - site of the St Davids Lifeboat Stations, new and old, looking out across the dramatic water of Ramsey Sound.
  • Boat trips to suit all tastes leave from St Justinians during the season (April to October) to circle Ramsey Island and to see the marine wildlife, birds and spectacular Pembrokeshire coastal scenery.
  • A Boat trip is a must do your St.Davids holiday itinerary! Go dolphin and whale spotting too with longer trips out to Grassholm and the lighthouse! Join boat trips from the old lifeboat slip but book your tickets in St Davids at the Voyages of Discovery booking office or telephone 01437721911

St Davids Cathedral and the Bishops' Palace

  • Tucked away in the valley below the town is St Davids' wonderful medieval Cathedral, dating back to 1181 - take time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place and perhaps have coffee or a meal in the new refectory.
  • 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, explore the ruined halls and stairways and let your children play while they absorb the atmosphere of this site of medieval power and influence.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • Resplendent in the spring and captivating at all times of year, the St Davids Peninsula section of the Coast Path is breathtaking - 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.

St Davids Peninsula Beaches & Coastal Inlets

  • Step outside your holiday cottage, cross the road and walk the path to the beach at Porthselau - a sheltered sandy beach, with rock pools and a stream which has been the stuff of perfect summer holidays for generations of small children.
  • To the south the path comes to Porthlysgi beach, a little beach with no access for vehicles - so seldom busy! And on further to the little harbour inlet at Porthclais - stop for an ice cream at the little hut by the car park.
  • To the north the path brings you to Whitesands Bay, a wide expanse of soft white sand popular with surfers and families and curving north towards the rocky St Davids Head. There is a well-stocked beach shop and cafe here too! Past Whitesands the path dips down to the tiny beach at Porthmelgan and Carn Llidi 'mountain' rises up behind - climb up this rugged outcrop to enjoy the magnificent view overlooking the glorious curve of Whitesands' fine golden sands.

Outdoor activities

  • At TYF in the centre of St.Davids, a choice of activities awaits you. Whether you're after a gentle introduction or mind-blowing adrenaline rush, TYF Adventure offers a range of thrilling activities from canoeing, coasteering, rock climbing, surfing and lots more. Activity days available for children and for families to enjoy.

Solva Harbour and coastal village

  • To the east of St Davids is the little harbour village of Solva - a real jewel of the west Wales coast. The sheltered harbour is an ideal place to sail, canoe or walk the beach or coast path. Afterwards relax and find refreshments while you visit the individual shops and galleries, pubs and restaurants that the village offers.

Porthgain Village and harbour

  • On the north coast, the village of Porthgain was once a prosperous nineteenth century industrial harbour exporting slate from quarries at Abereiddi and Porthgain itself. The village is now 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.

Golf Clubs at St Davids and Priskilly

  • Within a mile of the cottage is St Davids City Golf Club, the most westerly golf course in Wales. This 9 hole course with 18 tees is playable all year round - no winter greens, no winter tees, no muddy feet - and has fabulous views overlooking Whitesands Bay, Ramsey Sound and the infamous 'Bitches' stretch of water just south of St Davids Head.
  • Priskilly Forest Golf Club at Castlemorris is a family owned 9 hole course set in mature parkland with panoramic views. Beginners and families are welcome and there is a good bar, restaurant and beautiful walks for non players.

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 Fun

  • Explore the whole of Pembrokeshire to discover some amazing family attractions including Dr Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen, Castell Henllys Reconstructed Iron Age Hill Settlement, Carew Karting, Tudor Merchant's House Tenby (N.T.), Blue Lagoon Water Park, Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park.

Old and characterful chapel for holidays on the tip of the beautiful St Davids Peninsula. Sleeps 2.
