St Davids

 

Treiago Holiday Cottages are situated 3 miles from St Davids. We think St Davids is great, but as we're slightly biased we've let the good people at Lonely Planet describe the city:

 

"Charismatic St Davids is Britain's smallest 'city', its status ensured by the magnificent 12th-century cathedral that marks Wales' holiest site. The birth and burial place of the nation's patron saint, St Davids has been a place of pilgrimage for more than 1500 years.

 

The setting itself has a mystical presence. The sea is just beyond the horizon on three sides, so you're constantly surprised by glimpses of it at the ends of streets. Then there are those strangely shaped hills in the distance, which seem to sprout from a particularly ancient landscape.

 

Dewi Sant (St David) founded a monastic community here in the 6th century. Today St Davids attracts hordes of nonreligious pilgrims too, drawn by the town's laid-back vibe and the excellent hiking, surfing and wildlife-watching in the surrounding area."

 

St Davids has a whole host of things to see and do, including shops, restaurants and cafes.
