These two Pembrokeshire holiday cottages have a bit of something for everyone.

Whether you're after a convenient bolthole in the centre of Britain's smallest city or something a little more rural,  Rob and Eleri Davies have self-catering in the St Davids area of Pembrokeshire covered, with two properties that each offer something a little different to visitors to this beautiful region.

Spread across one level, Y Nyth – literally 'The Nest' – more than lives up to its name, a city centre St Davids bungalow that sleeps up to five people in cosy comfort. It's situated in a peaceful location but within easy walking distance of everything you might possibly need in the city centre – restaurants, shops, galleries, the coastal buses as well as the city's cathedral and all the sights. There's a brand-new kitchen leading into a dining room and then onto a patio and a well-established garden and lawn. There are 3 bedrooms – 1 double with king-size bed, 1 twin and 1 single – with big comfy beds adorned with Melin Tregwynt cushions just to make you feel properly in Wales; there's also decent wifi, a flatscreen TV with Freeview and a bluetooth music system.

As well as being in the centre of St Davids, you're just a short walk from Caerfai Bay and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The fabulous beach at Whitesands – perfect for both swimming and surfing – is just a short drive away, and you can park – and leave – your car at Y Nyth's sister property, Ty Mortimer, to visit Porthllisky Beach. Ty Mortimer is situated just under two miles away  at Treginnis Uchaf, an organic working sheep farm owned by the National Trust, It is, as the name suggests, a much more rural location, a traditional stone cottage where you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing into the westernmost point of  the St Davids Peninsula. Despite being so close to St Davids, it feels like a proper romantic getaway – very comfortable, equipped with all the mod cons you need, while still retaining a rustic flavour. The cottage has two bedrooms, with a king sized bed in one and 3 single beds in the other. It has wifi, a flatscreen TV and bluetooth music system, a modern kitchen and dining area and a large farmhouse table, plus a cosy downstairs sitting room with comfy sofas – and hosts Rob and Eleri are always on hand to answer any questions or advise on things to do in the surrounding area.

You're certainly spilt for choice! The coastal path is a 5-minute walk from Ty Mortimer and you can easily walk from the farm to the Treginnis peninsula, home to the oldest volcanic rocks in the UK. You can also follow the path to Porthllisky Beach, and boat -trips run from nearby St Justinians to to Ramsey island, where you can spot porpoises, dolphins, whales  and lots and lots of seabirds. Take a picnic, some binoculars and enjoy the show!

The Owner Says

Whether you're after a convenient bolthole in the centre of Britain's smallest city or something a little more rural,  our self-catering Cottages in St Davids and the surrounding area have you covered. With two holiday properties that each offer something a little different, we are sure you will find your perfect match.

Our favourite spot

Y Nyth holiday cottage is in the heart of St Davids. Benefiting from a recent renovation, this spacious bungalow is the perfect place to stop after a busy day exploring the city and coast of St. Davids. Close to the local shops and pubs. It has everything you need to have the perfect holiday from home.  Take a shuttle bus to start your walk of the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

Just outside of St Davids is our cottage "Ty Mortimer", tucked away on Treginnis Uchaf Farm. Comfy sofas to relax in after walking the Coastal Path or take a boat over to Ramsey Island for the day. This is the place to go for exciting walks, bird watching or just peace and quiet away from city life. Explore the Pembrokeshire coast path and watch the porpoises and seals in the bay surrounding Ramsey Island.  Don't forget to bring your camera.

The local area

We love to explore and go on walks, the beaches - Porthllisky and Whitesands have to be our favourite part of Pembrokeshire. Beautiful coastlines and a warm welcome wherever you go.  In May the coastal flowers are amazing.  Watching out for porpoises in Ramsey Sound and sometimes we can hear them whooshing just out of the water.  In the evening,  the dark skies are awesome - without light pollution, often see the Milky Way.  The sunsets colours need to be seen to be believed.

Best local places to eat and drink

We would recommend you explore the small city and find one of the great eateries. We think each one is great.


Two cottages, just under 2 miles apart, each comfortably sleeping 5 people.


Each cottage costs between £350 and £1015 a week, depending on the time of year.

Perfect cottage, perfect location

Ty Mortimer was just right for us. It's on a working farm in a peaceful location. There's good access to the coast path and wonderful walks on the very scenic peninsula west of St David’s. The cottage has lots of charm and character, while being fully comfortable with everything you need. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They showed us short-cuts across their fields to get to particular points on the coast. We much enjoyed their truly free-range eggs from some happy hens.
