Basic youth hostel on St Davids Peninsula that's popular with surfers.

The gorgeously sited old farmhouse has been given a makeover, and hostel stays here are better than ever, now that there's a new self-catering kitchen and redecorated rooms with more up-to-date furniture. It hasn't lost all its sense of tradition – it's self-catering only and the nearest shop is 3 miles away, along an unmade road – but there are some twin-bed and private rooms available, either in the old Pembrokeshire farmhouse or one of the converted outbuildings. No private facilities though – all the bathrooms are shared. The log-burner in the lounge keeps things warm on chilly nights.

The location is lovely, on the lower slopes of Carn Llidi, although if you’re surfing you really need a car to access Whitesands, which is about a mile away.

The hostel is also available for exclusive hire. Click here for prices.

The Owner Says

On the Pembrokeshire coast, in the breathtaking Whitesands Bay, sits YHA St Davids, a converted farmhouse ideal for a rural retreat, cheap family holiday or an action-packed activity experience. Everything from watersports, climbing and riding can be found within reach of this picturesque Welsh hostel. Nearby, enjoy surfing lessons with Whitesands Surf School, or for a more relaxed day try and fit in a trip to Ramsey Island, with its wealth of bird and marine life.
