The St Davids Peninsula

Whitesands Bay, St Davids

Set in the wild and beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park the miniature city of St Davids remains relatively unspoiled. The city is renowned for its magnificent Cathedral and Bishops Palace where concerts, plays and exhibitions, held periodically throughout the year, attract visitors and pilgrims from all over the world.

St.Davids Cathedral nestles in the heart of Britain's smallest city

For those of you who appreciate the beauty of raw nature there are numerous mainland and island reserves where a huge variety of flowers, birds and marine life can be enjoyed in spectacular settings. The local beaches of Whitesands (above) and Newgale, a few miles to the east of St Davids, both fly the 'Blue Flag' and with their ease of access are excellent for family outings. A myriad of more secluded beaches, bays and inlets are scattered around the peninsula for those of you who wish to get away from it all.

Walkers can enjoy the wonders of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path which covers around 168 miles of some of Britain's finest coastline, while the less energetic may prefer a boat or fishing trip. A local outdoor activity centre provides a host of challenging activities for those seeking action and seal watching, pony trekking and ale sampling are but a few of the many pleasurable pursuits available to those who visit the St Davids Peninsula.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park includes several offshore islands, the largest of which are Skomer, Skokholm, Ramsey, Grasholm and Caldey. These are internationally important for their seabird and seal populations. The Coastline is amongst the most beautiful in Europe, varying from high cliffs to long open beaches, and sheltered coves and harbours to mud flats and dunes.

The individual owners of St Davids Cottages all live in this locality so they are all well-placed to advise and assist you with your holiday plans.
