A very comfortable stay. We enjoyed a walk from Newgale beach to Solva, catching the Puffin Shuffle bus back. Enjoyed the huge beaches and smaller coves. Also went to the Pembrokeshire Show - very good! Beautiful coastline. Would like to go back to St Davids out of holiday season as very busy. A week is not long enough to do everything we wanted.
