  • "Very central location, easy reach of everything St David's has to offer."

    Everything we needed in kitchen, Mary (the owner) was a delight, so welcoming. Very peaceful considering we were on a main road. Spacious, and loved the outside space.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Y Bwthyn cottage St Davids."

    Location was just perfect. Cottage was comfortable and very well equipped. Needs a bit of TLC but that did not mar our stay. We would definitely book this cottage again.

  • "Owners very welcoming and helpful."

    Property charming but needing a little maintainance e.g. kitchen cupboards. Noise from road hardly noticeable. Would recommend heavy sleepers only in downstairs room due to noise from adjoining cafe. Cottage right in heart of wonderful St. David's and all our party thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Very conveniently situated, clean and well equipped."

    The washer needs attention as it didn’t empty properly. Maybe new sitting room furniture tho there were plenty of seats. Lovely comfy beds. Nice courtyard area for fine weather. Mary Wilcox the owner was very friendly and helpful when I had trouble with the door locks. I would like to hire the property again. Thank you.

  • "Excellent location in the centre of the city."

    Appliances/ furnishings are a little tired but perfectly adequate; property is an old building, so not as bright + airy as a modern dwelling - not an issue and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - hope to stay here again in future. Owner is very pleasant and helpful.

  • "Great location and the parking next door was a real bonus."

    Well appointed cottage with every facility you could want. Being a very old building it was a bit dark and musty inside but not a real problem. would happily stay here again

  • "Cottage excellently situated in the centre of St David’s, close to all attractions and outside main bus stop."

    However cottage was very dark and dingy. Cobwebs and dust everywhere. Smelt damp, and it was impossible to open the majority of the (dirty) windows. Nice patio area was ruined by previous occupants’ dog mess and was full of weeds. Upstairs sink outlet/downpipe was detached so emptied on to patio (and anyone sitting under it!). Everything in very poor state of repair. Whole place could do with refurbishment.

    This was a lovely cottage to stay at lots to do in the area and when you got back on an evening a lovely area to sit in out the back which catches the late evening sun

  • "The cottage was not luxurious, but very clean and comfortable, and we were completely happy with the facilities provided."

    The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and we particularly liked the fresh homemade scones brought round to us! Just a couple of little niggles - some of the instructions were not totally clear. Also, the description does not make it clear that the upstairs bathroom is reached from the bedrooms by going down and then up several stairs. We would certainly go back again if in the area.

  • "We had a lovely week’s holiday in st David’s staying in Y Bwthyn cottage."

    The cottage is in the heart of this tiny city, so very close to shops, pubs and cathedral. It has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable relaxing stay, plus a homely atmosphere. The owner was there to greet us and couldn’t do enough to make us welcome, including providing homemade scones! Would definitely recommend this property.

  • "Very friendly and helpful owners."

    Cottage is comfortable and located close to all amenities, including a large well stocked supermarket. In the upstairs shower room we would have liked a larger wash basin with plug and an electric razor point.

  • "The cottage itself was generally unwelcoming, dark, drab and felt unclean."

    The furniture and fittings were all very old and well worn, one would have found much better in a charity shop, or house clearance sale! The towels were threadbare; those that we brought to wipe down the dog were far superior. The patio was representative of the cottage, with an abundance of weeds, with the aroma of stale cooking oil from the adjoining cafe. We remained in the cottage for about two hours,only sufficient time to find other more suitable accommodation. Had we stayed longer then our comments would have been more detailed. On reviewing the Sykes web site, the photos you have included are obviously selective, and must have been taken some years ago, enhanced for brightness, but they are not truly representative. Furthermore, it is noted that whilst the cottage was given a 3 ticks rating, this is somewhat misleading, for this would appear to be your minimum rating.

The property

A cosy terraced St Davids cottage in the heart of this unique city, with a very homely feel as soon as you walk through the front door, directly into the sitting room with character beams and open stairs leading to two light and airy bedrooms.

With a third bedroom on the ground floor, a spacious kitchen/diner and a ground floor bathroom, this is a great cottage for all the family.

The quiet secluded patio is a real sun trap, and perfect for alfresco dining.

St Davids, the smallest city in Wales, is really beautiful, with its magnificent cathedral, gift shops, tea rooms, restaurants, bistros and pubs all within a few minutes' walk from this delightful cottage.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path offers spectacular scenery with varied wildlife and birdlife.

Sandy beaches offer relaxing days and invigorating walks, with swimming and surfing all year round.

With days out so varied, from Oakwood Theme Park and white water rafting to gentle strolls in picturesque countryside, your days will be as enjoyable as your evenings relaxing in this delightful cottage.

About the location


Fishguard 15.5 miles; Pembroke 28.7 miles.

The city of St Davids is situated on the far south west coast of Wales. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II, it is the smallest city in the UK, with its magnificent cathedral dating back to the 12th century and the ruins of the Bishop's Palace, both wonderful buildings to explore. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, St Davids is a delightful place with an array of unique shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs, surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery. Nearby Whitesands Bay is one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, and walkers will delight in the spectacular views from the coastal path which runs around the complete coastline of Pembrokeshire. Local buses will help with your walking plans, so that you can walk several stretches of the path with totally different landscapes and views each day. Dolphin spotting from land or from the many boat trips to local islands are a must, and are also perfect for enjoying the wonderful array of birds in their natural habitat. St Davids is the perfect holiday destination, whether you are looking for a quiet relaxing break, wonderful walking, a round of golf, an exploration of magnificent castles or fun-filled days at Oakwood Theme Park, farm parks and much more.

Please be aware of low head room in 2 doorways.
Please note this property has a maximum occupancy of 6 people.
