Located next to the Cathedral, this Bishop's Palace was originally built and established as a monastery in the 6th Century by Saint David. Most of the structure for this building remains however the Palace is now without a roof. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.

Beaches near The Villa

Abereiddy
Abereiddy beach is in a rural setting and covered in a unique mix of sand and pebbles that are bluey –grey in colour, due to the mixture of slate and stone. This gives the water a beautifully blue colour. Encased by dramatic cliffs and pretty colour-washed cottages, Abereiddy beach is ideal for surfers, kayakers and walkers. 
Children will love the pastime of local children through the ages- the search for Didymographus fossils which can be found in the slate pebbles along the beach.

Whilst you are here, don’t miss out on Pembrokeshire’s best hidden gem- The Blue Lagoon! Head North of the beach along the headland and discover this magical place for yourself. The former quarry is breath-taking, with it’s sparkling and very deep turquoise water. This is a popular spot for coasteering groups.
In summer months, enjoy an ice-cream and a cold drink from the van in the car park.
Abereiddy
After parking at Abereiddy, take the short walk around the cliff, passing the ruined quarry buildings and slate workers cottages and you will discover the stunning Blue Lagoon! You’ll be blown away by the Mediterranean-like turquoise water, which is a favourite for kayakers and coasteering groups.

Porthgain
An impressive sandy beach surrounded by equally impressive cliffs and headlands. When rough, there can be some pretty nasty rips at this beach making it unsuitable for swimming. Part of the beach can get cut off at high tide too, so watch out. To find it drive to either Porthgain and take the Coastal Path to the beach, or alternatively you can park at Abereiddy and take the 1 km walk along the Coast Path to Traethllyfn. Approx. 124 steep metal steps lead down to beach.
Abercastle
Abercastle is a picturesque cove which was once a busy slate port. It’s small ‘beach’ is made up of sand, shingle and seaweed and is popular with walkers and fishermen. It is an inlet still used as a harbour base for a string of local fishermen. 
Swimmers, divers, kayakers and boating enthusiasts are drawn to this area. There is a slipway for boats and kayaks. The beach also faces North West so is naturally sheltered from winds. 
The nearest place to get refreshments would be in nearby Trefin. Here, there is a pub and a café that both serve good food.
Solva is a beautiful rocky inlet which floods, except at low tide, providing a sheltered, safe anchorage for yachts and pleasure craft. Not surprisingly this fine natural harbour has given the village a long seafaring tradition. At low tide there is a small stretch of sand, but the picturesque little harbour provides a pleasant afternoon for watching the small boats coming and going. A busy little village in the summer, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and gift shops. Solva is just east of St Davids on the A487 Haverfordwest Road. Parking is on the harbour front.
Whitesands
Whitesands is one of the best beaches in the world – and that's official. Its not only the top beach destination in Wales, but ranks in the top 20 worldwide, beating the likes of Bora Bora and Natadola in Fiji. With its mile-long expanse of sand, the bay curves round to the rocky point of St Davids Head. Whitesands has been rated one of Britain's premier places in the Good Beach Guide and annually receives a Blue Flag award for water quality. Ideal for families it is also renowned for its surfing and watersports, being a firm favourite with both beginners and professional surfers. For 6 months, in and around the summer season, Lifeguards man the beach. The excellent beach-side shop and cafe provide a range of refreshments. Other facilities include parking, toilets, surfboards and windbreak hire, plus a bus service that travels back and fore to St Davids every half hour in summer months.
The dramatic and towering volcanic outcrop of Carn Llidi rises behind the beach, and is well worth the climb. It offers truly stunning views over the beach and bay, the sunsets are magnificent. Alternatively, follow the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path through the Iron Age fields and on to the Peninsula Settlement at St Davids Head. Dog restrictions apply to the entire beach between 1st May and 30th September.
Whitesands
Porthmelgan is a sandy and secluded beach to the north of Whitesands, accessed only via the Coastal Path. Park at Whitesands and follow the path round to the right of Whitesands Beach, underneath Carn Llidi.
St Davids
Caerfai is the nearest beach to St Davids and is popular for bathers, although at high tide the beach is completely covered leaving only rocks and boulders. A feature of the beach is the unusual purple sandstone along the cliffs, which was used to build St Davids Cathedral. The beach itself is pleasant and can very occasionally have some small surf. Its enclosed nature makes it unsuitable for kiting or windsurfing though. It is however an excellent place for coasteering with plenty of caves and rocky outcrops to explore. The cliffs around Caerfai also provide some good, popular climbing routes. Limitied parking is available at the top of the path to the beach or within the large caravan park. To find Caerfai beach follow the signs from the National Park Visitor Centre in St. Davids.
Abermawr
A little known, but impressively large, bay with a pebble bank which was naturally created by a huge storm in 1859. At low tide the beach is smothered in golden sand and offers good conditions for kiting. Surfing here can also be great when the tide is high, although beware of the strong currents.
At Low tide Abermawr’s 8000 year old forest remains can be seen. An additional treasure is the marshland behind the beach- here you can spot a vast array of wildlife.
Parking is along the roadside (limited space), there is a short path from here to the beach.
The nearest place to get refreshments would be in nearby Mathry, which has a great village pub that serves food.

St Davids
A small cove popular with divers and kayakers with lots of climbing routes on the surrounding cliffs. Again, as with all the beaches in this area also a popular place from which to explore parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. There is a car park with an ice-cream van in the summer but very few other amenities. To find Porthclais follow the small road leading SW from The Cross Square in St. Davids.

Historic Places near The Villa

Solva Woollen Mill is the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire and is now the only mill in Wales specialising in flat woven carpets, rugs and runners. Its a family business but visitors are welcome to the mill to wander through the weaving sheds, chat to the weavers as they are warping, splitting yarn or weaving. There is a mill shop housed carding engines and spinning mules and a tearoom which is located in the old dye shed, selling tea, coffee and homemade cakes.
Abercastle
Carreg Sampson is a Neolithic Burial Chamber of the dolmen variety. Stood tall are seven upright stones, three of which support a 4.5 metre long capstone. It is the remains of a large tomb which may once have been covered with a mound of earth, however any hint of a covering mound has since disappeared. A visit to Carreg Sampson is well worth it even if you are not a history buff, as it enjoys panoramic views across the land and sea.
A popular destination for pilgrimages, this Cathedral is a huge attraction for those interested in Welsh history and/or religion. St. David's Cathedral as we know it today replaced a monastery which was originally founded on the site by Saint David around 589 AD. Not only is it named after our Patron Saint of Wales, but it also contains a shrine to him. The Cathedral still operates a traditional communion service and also holds various special events such as the annual Cathedral Festival. Please note: Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.
Located next to the Cathedral, this Bishop's Palace was originally built and established as a monastery in the 6th Century by Saint David. Most of the structure for this building remains however the Palace is now without a roof. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
The birthplace of Saint David, this Chapel was built in 1934 on the site of the original house where Non had lived. The Chapel and its accompanying Holy Well were built in dedication to Saint Non, and have since become popular destinations for pilgrimages. Legend has it that springs appeared at each of the significant milestones of Saint David's life, and many believe this Holy Well appeared during his birth and holds many special healing powers.
Strumble lighthouse, erected in 1908, is actually situated on the small island of Ynsmeicel, reached by a small footbridge on the North West tip of Pembrokeshire, 5 miles west of Fishguard. The circular stone tower is 55ft high and still contains the original lantern. Please Note: The Lighthouse is automated so unfortunately there isn't any access onto the island.
Pembrokeshire Motor Museum has over forty motor cars on display, from veteran cars to classic cars. For each car on display, you can see a complete history. All cars are in excellent condition and are occasionally used by their owners for vintage car rallies etc. so please bear in mind that cars may not always be on display. The Motor Museum is also home to a licensed bar, a magazine and video lounge where you can read and watch all about motoring.
Learn all about the last British Invasion which occurred in February 1797 with a 30 metre award-winning tapestry at the library in Fishguard Town Hall. Added storyboards and artefacts are used to help guide your learning, and you can even learn all about the making of the tapestry in their audio visual room!
Scolton Manor was built in 1842 as a family home, and was even used as a hospital during World War 2. It is now a Victorian Manor House and Museum, set in a luxurious 60 acres of country park and woodland, with a wide variety of wildlife. The park is open all year, whilst the Manor House is closed during the winter months. The Manor House will be opening again in March 2015, and times will be confirmed nearer the time. Please Note: Admission to the Park is free, whilst charges to the Manor House apply. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times, and are allowed in the Park only.
Originally constructed in the 12th Century as a fortress made from timber, and has seen visits from a number of famous names including Oliver Cromwell and King Richard II. The castle was later reconstructed in stone, and was often used to house prisoners before being replaced by a new prison building inside the castle grounds in the 19th Century. This building is now home to the Pembrokeshire Records Office. Not much remains of the stone castle other than the stone wall which grandly looks upon the small town below it. A must-visit is the Town Museum, located in the Old Prison Governor's House. With artefacts, prints, paintings and models, this museum tells the history of the castle and the surrounding town.

The gravelled parking area then leads to a small flat paved area in front of the main door (which has a two inch high threshold) and which is to the side of the house.

There is a further exit door at the rear of the house onto a gravelled area which leads then down 3 x 6” high steps (in two locations) to a sloping (initially quite steep) grassed garden area of about one third of an acre in total.

The property is single storey and on one level (levels vary only marginally at points where there are differences in flooring types).

Doorways are narrow, cottage doors with Suffolk latches and of 600mm width.

Hallways, kitchen, bathroom/shower attachment/whb/wc are all slate/ceramic tiled. Bedrooms are carpeted.

The property comprises three bedrooms.
