About Mrs Hazel Marsh

We started taking holidays in Pembrokeshire when our children were small and wanted to buy somewhere we could all use as a family to keep and treasure for years to come. We love going to the house and hope that it will bring much pleasure to anyone staying.

Mrs Hazel Marsh purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Mrs Hazel Marsh chose Saint David's

We wanted to buy a bolt hole in a beautiful location near the sea so that we could just take off for the weekend or during the school holidays at a moments notice.

Pembrokeshire and St David's in particular is a wonderful location near endless lovely beaches, somewhere we can relax and will never tire of.

What makes this cottage unique

It is furnished to a very high standard as it was designed for our own use and has a touch of luxury that you might not find in other properties.

It is in a semi-rural location, close to the sea with the convenience of lovely St David's just a short cycle ride away with beautiful beaches, scenery and coastal walks.

Fabulous cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in St David's and the cottage was perfect.

It's an old chapel and has been renovated to a very high standard with every comfort for holiday stay.

There were four of us and there was plenty of room for all. It's light and airy and has a nice deck at the back that catches the afternoon sun and sunset.

It's about a 30 minute walk into St David's, which has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants. Would recommend St David's Kitchen for a meal. There's also the Cathedral, which is definitely worth a visit. Much better that the pictures suggest.

The area in general is beautiful, with the coastal path a must. The views are breathtaking with little coves and beaches at every turn. Whitesand and Newgale beaches are a must.

There's plenty to do, particularly for the energetic. We tried coasteering with Dragon Activity Guides and that was fantastic.

Would recommend a massage from Fey, who also looks after the cottage for the owners. She lives next door.

This is a beautiful part of the country. We went over the bank holiday and had great weather, but it didn't seem too busy.

Would highly recommend this cottage and the St David's peninsular for a holiday

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at the cottage. It is very well equipped and is very cosy. Its perfectly located to visit St Davids and there are many amazing beaches and walks nearby. We walked St Davids head and the coastal path from Aberreidi to Portgain- both amazing walks. The fish and chips at the Shed in Portgain are great too. Having been on holiday in Cornwall many times we most definitely will come back to Wales. We thought it was at least as beautiful and without the crowds! We cant wait to come back and explore more of the coastal path ! Thank you Hazel- we hope to stay at the cottage again soon.

Cottage was excellent.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in this beautiful cottage. Everything we needed was there. Some cottages can be a bit dark but this was very bright & the beds were so comfortable. If we come back to this area we would definitely like to stay again. Maureen

Nearest Restaurant
1 Miles
St David's
Nearest Beach
2 Miles
Car: recommended


Whitesands is the closest beach, just over 2 miles away and approx 5 minutes drive or a walk across country. It is a beautiful sandy beach in the National Park which has a 'blue flag' award. Caerfai bay is through St Davids, past the visitor's centre and approx 5 minutes by car. It is a lovely sandy cove surrounded by coastal paths, parking is at the top of the cliff and access to the beach is steep. The views from the top are stunning and should not be missed....


Use of a car would be advisable however there are plenty of cycle routes in the National Park.


St Davids, the lovely smallest cathedral city in the UK is just over a mile away. There are plenty of places of interest to visit including Solva a harbour village 10 mins, Porthgain 10 mins in the opposite direction - another harbour with pub, fish restaurant and gallery. The well known Blue Lagoon hosts many of the coasteering activities and the Red Bull diving competition. Haverfordwest, which is half an hour drive, has an out of town retail park and central town for shopping.

Further Details:

There are plenty of sea-based activities such as coasteering, kayaking or surfing. Fishing trips and sea adventure jets for those seeking adrenaline kicks or sight seeing of local wildlife including dolphins, puffins and seals, well known in this area of Pembrokeshire, are also popular.

Other activities include horse riding on the beach, or for those wanting to go faster there is Karting in Haverfordwest.

The Pembrokeshire coastal path is famous for lovely walks with stunning scenery, and there is much to explore by bicycle (cycle hire from St Davids).

St Davids itself is a very small cathedral city with a number of shops, banks and a pharmacy including Crew, Fatface, TYF organic clothing, Moshulu and some other unusual gift and clothing stores and trendy surf shops. It has galleries and a glass studio displaying local artists work and its own little quaint chocolate shop. For groceries there is a deli, vegetable shop, small supermarket and independent butchers. There are plenty of places to choose to eat ranging from the 'Cwtch' and 'St Davids Kitchen' restaurant to pubs and cafes serving fresh smoothies, coffees and cream teas, lunches and evening meals.

There is a lovely fish restaurant at Porthgain harbour, and a number of places not too far for fine dining and special occasions.
