More about this St Davids House for holidays ….

Captain’s House (built in 1882) is one of a terrace of Coastguard houses, also known as Royal Terrace. As soon as you enter the front door, you know that Captain’s House will be a fantastic St. Davids retreat.

There are two living rooms as you enter the property providing space for both children and adults alike– a more formal sitting room to the front and a cosy snug to the rear of the property with log burning stove, Smart TV and plenty of books to indulge in. The basement is home to the very well-equipped kitchen complete with Smeg Range Cooker and dining area.

5 bedrooms/4 bathrooms

The bedrooms are located from the 1st floor upwards. In total there are 4 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom, 2 with ensuites and 2 further bathrooms. The spacious master bedroom on the top floor enjoys beautiful views from the dormer windows – open them up and soak up the vista over the Bishops Palace, the St.Davids countryside and to the distant sea beyond. Here there is also an ensuite bathroom and a private staircase leading to a study area for those that need some quiet space to work.

Outside & Parking ….

It was our first time in St Davids and we weren't disappointed. The house was fabulous and we loved every minute. Thank you so much for a really special time with family and friends.
The Thomas Family, October 2022
Wonderful stay in St Davids, such a treat to be back in the city and have the opportunity to stay in such lovely accommodation. The views from the balcony and top bedroom were a particular highlight! As too were the large array of books and artwork that were enjoyed by all!

This is a beautiful house situated on a perfect location. Laid out over 5 floors this house is perfect for a large family. The house is well equipped and stylishly decorated. There is a very pretty garden close to the property with large table for Al fresco dining with BBQ and fire pit. We loved our stay there and will certainly stay again.
