St Davids

St Davids is a tiny cathedral city (really no bigger than a village) built on the site of the monastery founded by St David (Dewi Sant) in the 6th Century. The City status of St.Davids was granted to all of St.Davids by HM the Queen by Royal Charter on 1st June 1995.

Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, St Davids, or Dewisland, is surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery renowned for its beauty and abundance of wildlife.

This place has a real charm to it & I’m sure you love its atmosphere. While in the area, check out Whitesand Bay, popular with surfers & its walk along the coast from the car park. Also just a short drive along the coast is Martins Haven, which has a small peeble beach & the The Deer Park walk, a short but spectacular walk around the end of the Marloes Peninsula. Enjoy the dramatic coastal scenery & chances to spot wildlife.

No deer to see, but lots of seals (pups in autumn), heather and wildflowers, spectacular rocks and sea views. You’ll see most of Pembrokeshire’s islands from here.

Rhossili Bay Beach – Gower Peninsula 

At low tide there is a huge expanse of beach. It is possible to walk across the bay to Llangennith or even cross onto the Worms Head. When crossing over to Worm’s Head, please report to the Coastwatch Centre before you go. If your return journey is cut off by high tide, it is very important that you do not attempt to swim back to shore. There is always some sand, even at high tide. It is very popular with surfers. Many different birds nest on the cliffs, so don’t forget your binoculars.

There is a very steep walk down to the beach so it may not be suitable for pushchairs or anyone who has difficulty walking. Refreshments and parking 400 yards. Dogs are allowed all year round.

Although a fair drive from Flambards Hotel, the beaches on the Gower Peninsula are truly stunning.

Oxwich Bay

Oxwich Bay is one of Gower’s most popular beaches, with good access, plenty of parking, shops and two and half miles of golden sand backed by sand dunes, salt marshes and woodland.

It is a haven for all types of water sports including, diving, sailing, water-skiing and windsurfing, with a slipway to the beach. It is a safe beach for swimming, but do not swim directly in front of the slipway as this is the boat area. You can walk across the great expanse of sand towards Tor Bay and Three Cliffs Bay and on a low tide you can walk as far as Pobbles Bay.

Oxwich Bay Beach is dog friendly with dogs allowed on the beach all year. This is without doubt our favourite beach in the UK. Just stunning & at low tide, for those that want to, allow 3 hours to walk the length & back.
