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.

About the neighbourhood
Ty Gwilym Holiday Cottages in St Davids are set in the heart of the city, very close to the Cathedral, restaurants and shops and yet, within ten minutes walk of the coastal path and five minutes drive from the Blue Flag beach at Whitesand Bay.
Getting around
It's very easy to get around the area by car and there are also very good local buses, which help you to be dropped off somewhere and walk back along the coastal path.
