Rented a cottage with a real fire, beautiful place to stay any time of year. Lovely food at the Cambrian inn. Great walks on the coastal path or down the harbour when the tide is out.

My whole family spent a week here during the summer holidays. It suited everybody perfectly, the children loved the safe beach and the swimming, the adults loved the coastal walks. We all enjoyed the excellent restaurants in the village and the peace and quiet.

Hi, you would need to catch a bus from Tenby to Haverfordwest then a bus to St. davids. I have done it but it's a long journey. Don't forget you will need time to get back too, check out the local bus company for timings.
