What makes this house unique

It is peaceful and quiet. The only noise being the quite pleasant sound of children playing on the school playing fields. You can walk out to the untouched national Park or into the city of St Davids or the Cathedral in a few minutes.

Brilliant location in an old fashioned property.

  • 4 of 5

The situation of the house is fabulous - the cathedral fills the window. It is just minutes away from the pubs, square, shops and supermarket. There are lovely lawns and an orchard for the dog to play in.

Inside it is quite old fashioned - there is no central heating but heaters are provided. The water works off an immersion heater. The beds and sitting room were lovely and comfortable. There were some dusty/cobwebby corners picked out by the spring sun though. The TV also has a a DVD player - but no DVD's so you could bring some down. A radio and hair dryer would have been welcome.

Nevertheless - highly recommended. I can still hear the bells of the cathedral as dusk fell...

Wonderful views and so close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

The views from the cottage are outstanding, with the cathedral tower nearby in the foreground and Carn Llidi in the distance across fields and countryside. We enjoyed autumnal sunsets framing the tower as we lit the open fire in the lounge each evening. St David's has some lovely independent shops and a great deli selling local produce. We went to Cwtch restaurant on the Saturday evening which was excellent, and enjoyed some lovely walks around the vicinity of the cathedral and the coast. We found the cottage very comfortable and would highly recommend a stay here.
