The city of St David’s (Ty Ddewi in Welsh) and the surrounding peninsula are situated to the north west of Pembrokeshire, Wales in an area of outstanding natural beauty known as the Pembrokeshire National Park.
This beautiful area is a very popular destination with both locals and visitors who come to enjoying some of the most picturesque scenery that this part of Wales has to offer.
There are many beaches, the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, hidden coves and villages to discover and of course the City of St David’s and its Cathedral to keep you busy.
The city itself (the smallest in the UK) is vibrant and busy with plenty of independent shops, cafe’s, pubs and restaurants to keep you occupied.
It is technically the size of a small village with a population of around 2000, however City status was originally granted in 16c and the local people are very proud of this.
The Peninsula which stretches from St. Brides Bay to Strumble Head near Fishguard enjoys some 50 or so miles of coastal landscape. This is rugged coastline with jagged cliffs and strong tides but you can still enjoy swimming and water sports at many of the larger beaches along this stretch.
Inland the countryside is varied with large expanses of flat tableland, deep hidden valleys and to the north rocky outcrops which offer unrivaled views of the coastline, inland tundra and distant views of the Preseli Hills.
