My whole family spent a week here during the summer holidays. It suited everybody perfectly, the children loved the safe beach and the swimming, the adults loved the coastal walks. We all enjoyed the excellent restaurants in the village and the peace and quiet.

I come every year and stay in a local rented property. Great area for motorbiking. Self catering, pubs and walking. Not always great weather but it is the British Isles not the southern Spain.

Hi, you would need to catch a bus from Tenby to Haverfordwest then a bus to St. davids. I have done it but it's a long journey. Don't forget you will need time to get back too, check out the local bus company for timings.
