  • "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.

    No WiFi. Upstairs bathroom no mirror and tiny sink! Two showers both good. Appropriate facilities in kitchen.

  • "Four of us went to St Davids for my girlfriend's and her twins 40th birthday and took our 3 dogs."

    On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very welcoming and showed us the lovely cottage right in the centre of the city - the smallest city in UK due to the cathedral!. After a few minutes the owners wife arrived with a cream tea - nice touch. The house has everything required and is within walking distance of the local pubs, shops, beach and coastal walks. I would recommend this lovely house to dog owners and non dog owners as its a great place ideally situated to explore the Pembrokeshire area.

  • "Loved to have the family sit around the fire at night, very cosy sitting room."

    Fantastic to lay on the bed looking through the large skyline window at the stars. Loved the convenience of the shops, restaurants, pubs, arts, buses and coastal walks, all close by but in a small 'village' setting. An ideal holiday without a car.

About the location

ST DAVIDS

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.
