A lovely new Pasta Pop-up has just arrived at the back of TYF... 'Pasta a Mano'
We tried it last night and they serve a variety of delicious pasta dishes (including bolognese, pesto, puttanesca and pomodoro)... as well as coffee and pastries... and wine, beer and cider after 5pm... a great addition to St Davids.
I hope that everyone is safe and taking care in these difficult times. I am pleased to say that the Welsh Government has given approval for self-catering accommodation to open in St Davids and so, on Saturday July 11th, we welcomed our first customers for 16 weeks, which is great news.
We are all prepared and, having completed our risk assessment, we have just published our customer charter and cleaning programme, which we hope will reassure everyone about the steps we are taking to minimise COVID-19 risk for our visitors, our team and the people of St Davids.
We now have a dedicated COVID-19 page on our website, which sets out our plans and really looking forward to welcoming you back to St Davids.
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.
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!
