Situated to the west of the village city of St Davids, with its 12th century Cathedral, 'Derwen' enjoys a quiet location only a short distance from the sea and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The Pembrokeshire Coast has some of Britain's most spectacular coastal scenery and there are also some of the safest and cleanest beaches in Europe, which are ideal for tiny children and also for a wide variety of watersports including sailing, surfing, wind-surfing and sea angling.
Less than a mile away is the beautiful sandy Caerfai beach, one of the four best beaches in the British Isles (Holiday Which). Very safe for small children and toddlers with shallow rock pools for paddling and shrimping.
The large sandy beach of Whitesands is nearby. This has golden sands at all stages of the tide, with easy access for pushchairs from the adjacent car park. Whitesands is an EEC Standard Blue Flag Beach (free from contamination and manned by Lifeguards)
Enjoy a quiet picnic and swim at the sheltered sandy beaches of Porthlysgi, Porthselau, Porth-melgan or Caerbwdi, accessible only on foot. The large sandy beaches of Traethllyfn and Newgale are only a few miles away. Abercastle, Aberbach and Abermawr have rock pools and sandy beaches.
The tiny picturesque Porthclais harbour, beloved by children for “crabbing”, has a slipway for launching small boats and free boat park. There is also a famous lifeboat station at Porthstinian. Boat and fishing trips to the offshore islands are organised by local fishermen.
Cleanliness is top priority and 'Derwen' is thoroughly cleaned and checked prior to occupation. The stairs to the first floor were especially made with wide treads and narrow risers and are very safe. Cots, highchairs and safety gates are available for babies and toddlers and a babysitting service. Equipment includes ample crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Other useful items are local OS maps and guide-books.
WHERE TO FIND 'DERWEN':
the continuing extension of the M4 westwards means that St Davids has become quicker and easier to reach.
The M4, M50 and A40 are direct routes to Haverfordwest.
From either Haverfordwest
or Fishguard take the A487
to St Davids and Lower Moor.
