Ty Blawd is one of a pair of adjoining cottages is set on a working farm 2 miles to the North of St Davids, Britain's smallest city. The farm stretches down to the famous Pembrokeshire coastal path, and numerous cycle routes run nearby. St Davids is a beautiful and unique city surrounded by some of the finest coastline in Europe. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral St Davids is in reality a small beautiful village. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park St Davids is surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery renowned for its beauty and abundance of wildlife. Many people have fallen to the charm of St Davids including former New Zealand rugby Coach Graham Henry who lists St Davids as his favourite place in the World.
Ramsey Island is home to large colonies of razor-bills, kittiwakes, fulmers, chough, guilliemot, raven, peregrine and puffin. Managed by the RSPB the island is separated from the Pembrokeshire coast by the infamous Ramsey Sound. With each tide the waters surge through the sound making it a firm favourite with the seals, dolphins and porpoise. Local sightseeing trips can be booked to view these wonderful creatures.

Very enjoyableCouple from Shropshire - 24th July 2017
Not ever visiting St David's before, we were more than happy with our stay. The area, coastline and people were wonderful and our hosts at Ty Blawd, Mr and Mrs Morgan, were absolutely fantastic and we will definitely go back to stay at some point in the future. In addition, Ffion from Best of Wales was brilliant throughout - again, more thanks. If you want to walk the coastal paths, definitely take walking boots and a camera as you will hopefully see sealions and dolphins like we were lucky to see. If you take dogs, Whitesands beach does not allow dogs and costs about £3 to park even if not stopping long, however Nolton Haven beach is dog friendly and doesn't cost as much to park. The Saffron Restaurant does a great takeaway.. The Nisa store in St David's city was a great supermarket, could get most things you needed. There are lots of things to do and see, but we will return without our dogs at some point so we can do and see the things we missed.Pauline - 23rd September 2015
It was perfect. The location was amazing and the cottage just great.
The peacefulness of the location made for a really relaxing break
Visit Solva in the evenings for the best time to take photographs. The sunsets at Whitesands were something else
Darrell - 24th April 2014
The location and standard of the accommodation was perfect. Its a very peaceful location with stunning scenery within a short walking distance from the cottage. The welcoming touches of the welsh cakes and bottle of wine were appreciated. I will definitely return.
Darrell Jones - 24th April 2014
Fantastic location - we loved being able to walk with our little children to the coast path.
Walk bits of the coast path for beautiful scenery, amazing views and sightings of seals.
