I hope that everyone is safe and taking care in these difficult times. We have been considering the best advice to give people who have booked holidays in our cottages, in the context of the national coronavirus crisis and the current Government Advice.
The situation is that customers have been asked not to travel and we have been asked to close our cottages... and so people haven't been able to come in April and May and this is likely to extend into most of June. We will, hopefully, be talking to everyone over the coming weeks and will review our advice every day in the context of latest policies. We realise that this will be very disappointing and difficult for everyone and look forward to speaking to you to discuss all the options.
We will review this advice as things progress and very much hope that we will be able to open in July, at some point, and look forward to welcoming you to Ty Gwilym Holiday Cottages very soon!.
Yesterday we walked from our cottages in the middle of St Davids to Lower Treginnis (the Farm for City Children) and then round to St Justinians. We had a brief lull from the recent storms and the view, as always was amazing, as was lunch in The Meadow!
This photo was captured last weekend just as the sun went down over Ramsey Island. It was taken from St Justinians... showing the old and new lifeboat stations. Another amazing experience near our cottages in St Davids.
Marloes is now host to a great new cafe, which serves bold food and will soon have accommodation too! It was formerly a Youth Hostel, but now serves fresh fish, and vibrant vegetable dishes, freshly prepared every morning. It overlooks Marloes beach on the westerly tip of Pembrokeshire... really worth the trip!
Our cottages appear on the Alastair Sawdays website and, every so often, customers post their reviews. Here are some extracts:
" We found this 'perfect cottage'... a gem... our absolute favourite."
"The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in"
" Everything about Bwthyn Lil is beautiful... obviously loved by the owners!'
We look forward to hearing from you.
A great new pizza restaurant and coffee shop has opened in St Davids at the back of the TYF Activity Centre, New Street, just passed Mountain Warehouse. Dusty Knuckle is open 9am until 10pm and serves amazing pizzas straight from the oven, as well as drinks.
We went across to Ramsey Island yesterday to see seals, cormorants, gannets and oyster catchers... and saw this boat trip on the north side of the 'Bitches' framed by Carn Llidi....another day of wonderful weather in St Davids!
Here is a photo we took last week showing the Cathedral Clock Tower through some oxeye daisies growing in Ty Gwilym Holiday Cottages gardens.Our gardens are full of lavender, oxeye daisies, geraniums and foxgloves.
A wonderful new Beauty and Spa has opened at No 42 Goat Street, about half way down on the right... and a 'stone's throw' from our cottages.
They provide a wide variety of treatments, including beauty, aromatherapy, facials, massage and complimentary therapies.
Do pop in or call them on 01437 454 114 or book online at Menevia Spa.
On the last night of the Cathedral Music Festival, we enjoyed a lovely evening of dinner and music by Vox Angelica and the Choral Scholars in the Nave.
This is an amazing setting for an event and we were treated to the Marriage of Figaro, The Teddy Bear's Picnic and more!
