This North Pembrokeshire holiday cottage is detached and set on a smallholding just outside Mathry, 6 miles from Fishguard and 10 miles from St Davids. The owners of the cottage live in the nearby farmhouse. Mathry is a lovely little village and was the birthplace of Jemima Fawr, a Welsh heroine who led the women of Pembrokeshire into battle in what is known as the last invasion of Britain in 1797. The Farmers Arms in Mathry is a great traditional pub with great food and a wide selection of ales.
St Davids is Britain's smallest city and is surrounded by some of the finest coastline in Europe. Well worth a visit during your stay at this luxury Pembrokeshire holiday cottage, the city of St Davids lies on the River Alun and is located on the St David's Peninsula. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral, St Davids is in reality a small beautiful village. Many people have fallen to the charm of St Davids including current New Zealand rugby Coach Graham Henry who lists St Davids as his favourite place in the World.
