Our family-friendly cottages in St Davids have plenty of space, are surrounded by attractions, and truly have something for everyone! Whether you visit St Davids with your partner and the children or are planning to get the extended family involved too, we have the perfect cottage for you on the St Davids Peninsula. Here are four of our Pembrokeshire family-friendly cottages.
This delightful bungalow is set in a quiet cul-de-sac at the top of St Davids, within easy reach of everything you need for a family holiday. A five-minute walk takes you to the centre of St Davids, or take the slightly longer walk to Caerfai beach. Caerfai is the perfect place to set yourselves up for a beach day, complete with picnic hamper, buckets and spades! Sleeping 4, Yn Y Ty also welcomes one dog, so the whole family can enjoy the break!
In the very centre of St Davids, you will discover the wonders of The Bench’s ice cream. Prepare for some serious decision making, as you will be met with a whole array of flavours. If you are visiting with a dog, they won’t be left out either, pick them up some dog-friendly ice cream!
Perching at the top of the harbour village of Solva is Pen Y Banc. This bright, beautiful, dog friendly house sleeps 8 people and is ideal for a large family. With various outdoor areas, including an adorable summer house, and two dining areas, there’s plenty of space for everyone! Wander down the hill to enjoy the cafes and shops of Solva, and try your hand at crabbing off the harbour wall! At the end of the day when the children are in bed, watch the sun go down with a glass of wine in hand on the balcony with views over St Brides Bay.
Solva is just a short drive from St Davids, and so a visit to the cathedral is a must. People of all ages will gaze open-mouthed at the incredible architecture inside and out. On a sunny day have a look around the adjacent Bishops Palace, and let your imagination run wild among the ruins.
Ty Canol is a charmingly converted stone cottage, located in a magical part of Pembrokeshire, Abereiddy. Sleeping 5 and welcoming two dogs, this is a coastal haven. If your family has lots of energy – this is the place for you! A walk across neighbouring fields takes you straight to the beach, and of course the majestic Blue Lagoon. From here in summer months you can hire kayaks, book a coasteering adventure or set out on the coast path. We recommend heading to Porthgain for fish and chips!
On the road between Abereiddy and St Davids, you’ll find the turning to one of the best family attractions around! Head here to learn all about the creepy crawlies of the world, and stay for lunch at The Grub Kitchen. They serve fab food and famously use bugs in their ingredients. If that’s not your thing, there are plenty of non-buggy dishes too!
If you’re looking for a large house in which it’s easy for the whole family to come together, but equally easy to get your own space, Plas Hyfryd is for you. High up in Solva with views right over the bay, this house sleeps 10 people with lots of room for all. Just a stone’s throw from all that Solva has to offer, yet tucked away in a quiet part of the village, this has something for everyone. The games room will keep people of all ages entertained!
Walk down the hill to Main Street and pop into this wonderful cafe. They make and griddle their own welshcakes, with unique flavours (think Leek and Cheese!). Either enjoy a coffee with a welshcake on the side or choose from one of their lovely dishes, many of which incorporate (you guessed it) welshcakes!
