Cottage Locations

Whitesands_2The three Whitesands cottages - Ty Gwyn, Craig yr Haul and Foxhole - are grouped together at the north end of the beach, facing south towards the Bay and Ramsey Island.  Whitesands Bay was chosen as Countryfile Magazine's "Beach of the Year" for 2014/15.  St Davids Head, Porth Melgan Beach, Garn Llidi Mountain and Porthsele are all only a short walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Directions to the Whitesands Cottages

(Ty Gwyn, Craig yr Haul & Foxhole)

From Haverfordwest take the A487 road to St Davids.

On entering the city’s 40mph sign, go past the garage on your left, the school and housing estate (Millard Park) on your right; after the housing estate turn right down Glasfryn Lane.

When you arrive at the junction at the end of this lane (having passed the industrial unit on your right), turn left onto the main road.  Then turn right towards Whitesands (driving past the Rugby Club), and shortly afterwards turn left onto the B4583 road to Whitesands.

Just before you reach Whitesands Beach, you will see a pair of semi-detached 1930s houses on your left.  Opposite the first of these houses, turn right up the concreted farm lane, and the cottages are at the top of the lane.

Pembrokeshire is a fantastic holiday destination: it enjoys the UK's only coastal national park, with the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Footpath (186 miles); and there are many miles of beautiful beaches, dramatic cliffs, the wildlife islands of Skomer and Ramsey; Norman castles that split the Welsh northern half of the county from the English "down below"; and the historic St Davids Cathedral and Bishops Palace.

Whitesands Cottages are all located on the western tip of the St Davids peninsula, next to the beach, surrounded by some of the most unspoilt countryside and coast in the national park.
