About Richard Simper

I have been visiting St. David's and the surrounding area since the early 1970's and my parents originally bought the bungalow "Sylvan" in 1974 with a view to their retirement. Sylvan has been a holiday home since 2000 shared between myself and my three siblings. Over the years I have walked the entire Pembrokeshire coastal path (south to north) and intend to complete it again, but next time in the opposite direction. I have very good knowledge of the local area and can advise on things to do and places to go if required.

Richard Simper purchased this bungalow in 1970

Why Richard Simper chose Saint David's

Originally bought by my parents for their retirement. Inherited in 1999 and now maintained as a holiday home.

What makes this bungalow unique

Peace and quiet. Convenience of the local amenities and the outstanding coastal scenery.

Warm cosy cottage in the heart of St David’s. Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cosy and well equipped. It is located in the heart of St David’s, walking distance to all amenities, restaurants and Cathedral. I would highly recommend staying at this property.

What's not to like ?

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cosy home, with everything you could possibly need, right in the middle of St Davids. The bathroom with shower has been recently refitted and the washing machine and tumble drier made it easy to deal with walking gear.

Lots of nooks and crannies to store 'stuff' and a very pleasant sunroom for extra space. A very, very comprehensive selection of literature on the local area and much else. No time even to get started on the great jigsaws available.

Sylvan helped to create another memorable holiday.

As a family we stayed here twice this summer. Couldn't fault Sylvan. Excellent location and facilities. Owner very friendly and prompt with communications. Would definitely go again.

The bungalow was as promised, just off the main St David's' street. It was clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

As a writer I was looking for a place away from the busy world of New Jersey to work on a new project and found it at Sylvan. I spent the mornings working and the afternoons walking, scrambling on the cliffs and having a great time in the most beautiful part of Wales, of Britain, and perhaps the world. I didn't want to leave.

Haven in heart of St Davids

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a comfortable and centrally located place to stay within St Davids and this property exceeded our expectations. It is very well appointed, clean and cosy with a lovely secluded garden. The owner provided excellent in-house information and hassle-free service. The bungalow's location is great and we could walk easily to the town, the shops, the Cathedral, the restaurants and cafes. St Davids is, of course, a central location for this beautiful part of Pembrokeshire, so we really enjoyed the coastal walks. I would not hesitate in recommending this property to others.
