Ty Gwilym Holiday Cottages, St Davids, Pembrokeshire Availability

Spectacular scenery at any time of year!

St Justinians is one of our favourite places that you can reach by walking from our holiday cottages in St Davids and going due West. It takes about 40 minutes. 

It overlooks Ramsey Island and provides breath-taking views at every time of day and there is always a great opportunity to see seals, dolphins and porpoises.

Some of the rocks at St Justinians are nearly 600 million years old and called ‘Cambrian basal conglomerate’.

There is a lovely story that involves St Justinian’s, as one day back in the 18th century, a young lady by the name of Margaret Williams saw a boat in distress and went out in a small rowing boat to rescue the sailors from the rocks, which she did successfully!

It is said that St Justinians was a place for pilgrims to visit and, if you look carefully, you will see the ruins of St Justinians Chapel, which was built in the 16th century; and this chapel is said to have been built on the foundations of another chapel built by St Justinian

St Justinians is now the place where people gather to go on boat trips to all the local islands and particularly Ramsey Island.

St Justinian himself was born in the 6th century and ended up living on Ramsey Island. He was very friendly with St David and made frequent visits to see him at St Davids Cathedral.
