Beautiful views of Whitesands Bay from this stunning holiday cottage in St. David’s

The Property

Island View is a generously-sized detached cottage tucked just five minutes away from the coast, with breath-taking views of Whitesands Bay, Ramsey Island and rugged Carn Llidi hill. The blue-flag award-winning Whitesands beach is a short 10 minute walk away, and is widely regarded as one of the best surfing beaches in Wales. If you prefer more gentle leisure pursuits, the mile-long expanse of golden sand provides the perfect opportunity for a stroll, while your inner marine-biologist can enjoy exploring the rockpools teaming with fascinating sea life.

The cottage sleeps up to 13 people in 5 bedrooms, so is ideal for groups of friends or families holidaying together. The master bedroom features a super-king bed and has a panoramic view across Whitesands bay and Ramsey Island. The neighbouring triple room also boasts a super-king bed, as well as a single, and enjoys the same fabulous views. Towards the rear is a twin room (two single beds), and a king bedroom with ensuite shower. Looking across to the craggy slopes of Carn Llidi is the family-sized fifth bedroom with a king bed, and two single beds.

There is ample room to relax and socialise in Island View, with a large sitting-room, conservatory and dining room – all with sea views. Board games, WiFi and the 50” Smart TV with Apple connectivity provide the entertainment for quiet, cosy evenings in, and the dining room doubles as a great office space if you need to tuck yourself away and do a little working from home. The kitchen is equipped with all the essentials you need to prepare a family feast, while enjoying the view of Carn Llidi. The utility room has a generous fridge-freezer, washing machine and dryer.

With a maximum of three steps to access all parts of the property, Whitesands is a great choice for family members of all ages. That includes four-pawed family members – dogs with well-behaved owners are very welcome here!

The Exterior

Island View has a private car-park for up to 5-6 cars, and the large garden behind is very private with a lawned play area. In front of the conservatory and sitting-room with views across Whitesands bay is a large patio area with two picnic tables to enjoy alfresco dining.

The scenic and friendly St Davids City links golf club is a few minutes down the road, and welcomes members and visitors alike. Island View is also wonderfully situated for short walks to discover local gems like St David’s Head, Carn Llidi, St Justinian’s lifeboat station, the UK’s smallest cathedral city of St Davids, and two quieter sandy beaches of Porth Melgan and Porthlyski. Whitesands beach as already mentioned is a Blue Flag beach, with toilet and café facilities, and has lifeguards on duty throughout the summer months. During the quieter months (October – April) the beach is dog-friendly, and this is also when surfing is at its best.

Reviews

Myself and my family had the absolute pleasure of staying at Island view towards the end of May. The property is situated in very quiet and peaceful surroundings, with the most magnificent view over the sea and rolling countryside. It's a very beautiful and spacious house, incredibly well equipped with everything you may need. When we arrived on the Saturday evening and walked into the living room, we were stunned by the views and very pleasantly surprised to see a family of wild rabbits frolicking in the garden! We saw these rabbits in abundance throughout our stay, and the children became very fond of them. We made the most of our time at Island view by exploring the local surroundings. There is no shortage of things to do! We spent lots of time on Whitesands bay which is less than a mile away from the house, and has a cafe and toilets. We also visited Newgale beach, which our pup absolutely adored, and is only a 20 minute drive. The blue lagoon at Abereiddy beach is a must see, as well as the boat trips (lots to choose from!) The town of St David's is charming and picturesque, with all the locals being super friendly. I honestly could not recommend this property or area enough! It was everything we could have wanted and more.
