St Davids is Britain’s smallest city and home of the famous 12th century cathedral that commemorates the birth place of Wales’ patron saint in about 500AD. At the other extreme, there are several companies operating wildlife watching boat trips on large, fast RIB’s. Some offer Whale and Dolphin watching trips in the summer and longer trips such as to Grassholm Island to see the huge gathering of nesting gannets while others can land on the RSPB reserve on Ramsey Island.
Choose your cottages by location. Fishguard and Goodwick are the twin towns at the heart of North Pembrokeshire, the hub in the midst of outstanding natural beauty that blends the allure of sea, towering cliffs, the Preseli Hills, ancient standing stones and delightfully mysterious valleys such as Cwm Gwaun. The tiny picturesque harbour at Lower Town, Fishguard, has been the setting for many films including Dylan Thomas’ ‘Under Milk Wood’ and ‘Moby Dick’. Most of the friendly shops and businesses in the town’s narrow streets are family-owned and warmly welcome visitors.
