About us here at Cwmwdig Water Guest House
Back in history Cwmwdig Water Guest House, St Davids Pembrokeshire, started out as a country smallholding of around 27 acres, with dairy, potatoes and turkeys being the main products. Over the years changes have been made by various owners, until 1987 when my aunt and uncle, Elsie and Eifion Evans, bought the property and developed the Guest House and Restaurant into a successful country holiday business. On their retirement in 1998 I decided to make a life-changing decision and move from Essex, leave the ‘rat race’ of working in London behind, and move to Pembrokeshire to join the welsh side of the family. I brought with me my wife Gill and my four daughters: Emma, Katy, Fay and Heather. It was a huge undertaking with four young children, but one which Gill and I have not regretted.
After the outbreak of ‘foot & mouth’ we decided to sell off the old farmhouse and down size to our present accommodation, in the converted farm barns, but still keeping the lovely views across the countryside, to the sea.
We specialise in making everyone welcome, whatever their needs and requirements, and we look forward to meeting you and your family as you enjoy a wonderful, peaceful country and coastal break in Pembrokeshire at any time of the year.
Abereiddy is our nearest beach, with parking for cars, toilet facilities and refreshments (during the season), where you can also view the ‘Blue Lagoon’, a flooded slate quarry. If you follow the coastal path north you will find the sandy beach of Traeth Llwyn, reached down a long flight of steps.
Further along the path you reach the village of Porthgain , where you will find derelict brickworks and remains of the old quarrying industry which was finally abandoned in the early 1930’s. Today Porthgain is a thriving village, containing a number of art galleries, the ‘Shed Bistro’ and ‘The Sloop’, one of our well-known local pubs.
St. David’s , the smallest city in Wales, is just a short 10-minute drive away. You can’t visit this area without spending time viewing the beautiful Cathedral, with its newly restored Cloisters and Refectory, and don't forget to walk round the the ancient ruins of the Bishop's Palace, trust me, you will not be disappointed! Having worked-up an appetite why not walk back up the Cathedral steps, and the hill, to treat yourself to a Pembrokeshire Cream Tea at The Sampler Coffee Shop , or any of the many other eateries in St. David’s.
Whitesands Bay to the north and Caerfai Bay to the south are just two of the lovely sandy beaches that you will find around St. David’s.
Just a mile offshore at St. Davids you will find Ramsey Island (RSPB Reserve) . This island is a nesting home for kittiwakes, shearwaters, peregrines and many other bird species. During the Autumn the island is one of the homes for new born pups of the Atlantic grey seal. Voyages of Discovery offer a variety of boat trips around the island and the surrounding area. Thousand Islands Expeditions allow you to spend time on the island as well as trips around the island and the surrounding waters. If you like the taste of seawater and the rush of fresh air through your hair, then travel further south to the other side of St. Bride’s Bay where you will find the islands of Skokholm and Skomer . Both Dale Sailing and Dive Pembrokeshire offer boat trips around these islands.
