Situated on the edge of St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Penrhiw is, from the outside, an impressive and imposing monument to Victorian grandeur. As soon as you set foot inside, however, it's clear the building has been restored to exacting contemporary sensibilities: suede wallpaper and contemporary artworks set the scene for a boutique venue that nestles in acres of private gardens, surrounded by woodland paths, river and meadow.

There are just seven en-suite bedrooms and a spacious ground-floor suite, all of which come with robes, slippers and aromatherapy toiletries. A continental breakfast is available each morning, and for dinner, head across St Davids to Penrhiw’s sister hotel Twr-y-Felin, which boasts the three Rosette Blas restaurant.

It’s only a short stroll into St Davids – Britain’s smallest city – with its cathedral dating back to the sixth century. You can also walk to beautiful Whitesands Beach, rated by many as one of the finest in Pembrokeshire.



If you're looking for a serene environment, surrounded by nature, Penrhiw is the place for you. It's so peaceful and relaxing, you won't want to leavve.

Suitable For

We love the woodland walkway that takes you from one side of Penrhiw to the other. Surrounded by nature, flora and fauna, with the river below, it's a beautiful walk.


The easy access to 186 miles of spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
