The Boat House

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
St Davids, St Davids Peninsula, Pembrokeshire, Wales
The Boathouse has now joined Ty Gwilym Holiday Cottages and is our fourth holiday let. It's a lovely self catering holiday home for two in St Davids. It has two private balconies and garage parking for one car as well as good storage for cycles….a rare feature in St Davids…. and makes a wonderful base for exploring the Pembrokeshire coast.

All rooms are on the first floor and the kitchen is well equipped with views across to the...
