'Car-y-Mor' means 'For the love of the sea' and is a Community Benefit Company that has started two trial 'Ocean' farms in Ramsey Sound, St Davids. It also aims to connect people with their coastal environment and local, sustainable seafood through media, volunteering and boat trips. It's the first commercial seaweed and shellfish farm in Wales and aims to motivate and inspire others to duplicate... using no pesticides, fertiliser or fresh water.

St Davids has a new, handmade pizza restaurant for eat-in or takeaway. We tried it this week and it's amazing... such a good menu serving pizzas, as well as hot sandwiches, beers, wines and coffee. It's very easy to order on their App and you can find it just behind TYF Adventure... a great addition and currently open 12.00 - 22.00. Call 01437 454 321 or see their Facebook page here.
Whitesands Bay, one of the best surfing beaches in Pembrokeshire, has a new rescue rib to support the amazing team, who patrol the beach, which is 'Blue Flag' and just 5 minutes drive or 30 minutes walk from our cottages in St Davids.
I hope that everyone is well and keeping safe. I am pleased to say that we opened our cottages on March 27th for our Welsh customers and Monday April 12th for customers from England, following the Government announcements. You may like to look at our website page dedicated to COVID-19, which sets out the way we take care of our customers, our staff and the wonderful people of St Davids. We have very much enjoyed being open after such a long period of closure... a really difficult time for everyone! Thank you for all your patience during this time.
One of our customers took this lovely photo from the balcony of Bwthyn Lil last week. Every day the view is different from amazing sunsets and gorgeous blue skies... to sea mist and, now, double rainbows!
A wonderful new shop has opened in St Davids...Basalt and Dune. It's located in Maes Dyfed, just off New Street and sells gifts, homewares and lifestyle accessories. It aims to help people be 'calm, relaxed and shop at their leisure' and reflects coastal, country and city lifestyles. We love it! Do visit!
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.
